I wish you guys wouldn't continue complaining about the game instead of talking about the downloadable content. A Mr. Freeze boss fight without thugs is just easier not better. The XE suit is easily my favorite Bat suit. The bulk of the costume reminds me of the Dark Knight Returns Batman. I hope DC makes it into a toy.

My only real complaint is that the new suit is useless. It basically lets you break ice. Whoopie. I was hoping for tougher, slower, massively more powerful Batman, a Batman that's a tank. Think Night of Owls suit. The design looks so heavy and armored, it should slow him down but beef him up.
At first I was thinking that the devs didn't have time to do a whole new set of animations and moves, but then I remembered what Rocksteady did with HQR, whole new character and animation set.
This is such a missed opportunity. The suit is power armor, there's no reason they couldn't have ended the boss fight with a ground and pound fist fight between him and freeze, armored suit fist fight. Instead, he did everything he could have done with his old suit.

It's a shame so many people are turned off by "bugs". I have the game on the Xbox 360 and I haven't seen any of these game breaking bugs myself. Personally I thought the game was pretty sweet and I hope Warner Bros. makes another one, since Rocksteady is done after Arkham Knight.

Fat Batman! I know it's probably just going to be a minor side-story DLC, but hey, I'm not picky when it comes to Arkham. At least it won't be as bad as Initiation.

Regarding bugs: I've been fairly safe from them in the PC version, at least nothing that's game-breaking. Multiplayer with the servers is really troublesome though.

How's the Freeze boss fight in comparison to the one city?

The one in City is much better. The fight with Freeze in the DLC feels more like how you fight Deadshot in Origins or Two-Face during the Catwoman episodes in City. Freeze basically just walks around the room, and if he sees you will try to shoot you with his freeze gun. If he catches you grappling up to a vantage point he tends to freeze them as well (though you're able to unfreeze them). Along with that, as his health gets lower he'll call in random thugs for support.

I'm very happy that my favorite Batman series is getting a Mister Freeze story DLC, but I'm also disappointed since WBGM is the one who worked on it... :|

Beat the main story for this DLC within two hours and while it wasn't horrible, it wasn't anything amazing either. If you know the classic Mister Freeze story then this won't be really that surprising. When you find out that Mister Freeze is just a man who's trying to save his wife, it feels like the writers wanting you to feel bad for him...and while I do feel bad for Freeze, because I know his story and origins and have seen it told is so many forms, the story didn't really hit me as emotionally as it should.

Gameplay-wise it basically just the Batman from Arkham Origins. He has all of his gadgets from the end of Origins, except for the Glue Grenade which for some reason they left out. The EX Suit that you get really doesn't do much and felt more like a buffed-up version of your regular Bat-Suit. The only time the suit was useful for was against thugs with freeze guns and the suit grants you fired-up versions of normal gadgets like your Batarangs, but they still function basically the same.

One thing I did have issues with was that a few times the game doesn't give you any hint at to what you're suppose to do or where you need to go. Most of the time it gives you a little marker on the map or even has Bruce or Alfred tell you, but a few times I was wondering around trying to figure out what I'm suppose to do next. Also some of the graphics looked a bit rough, causing the characters to not look as polished.

Overall, for a DLC it was just okay. Like I said, I finished the main story in about two hours and really rushed through the thing with no challenge. I found the Anarky side-missions to be a bit random, coming off more as something to make the thing feel longer but ultimately feeling pretty pointless and boring. This DLC was nothing amazing and if you choose to skip it you won't be missing out.

For those having trouble, I re downloaded and restarted my console, that fixed it. Hell of a first impression Montreal.

@smashbrawler: How did you start the DLC? Did it appear on your menu or something? Or did it pop up in game?

It's in the main menu, right under "Story".

This DLC was utter garbage, especially considering it took 4-5 months to develop.

It was alright. Main story's pretty short but I wasn't expecting that much to be honest. Kinda sucks that all of the "frozen victims" are cops though, I mean really? You have all those other generic models of the ceremony attendees and security guards and you just use cops? Even when it doesn't make sense for them to be there?

The thugs with freeze guns are a pain in the ass at first but they're pretty easy to take down from then on. The boss fight against Mr. Freeze is a bit tricky at first but it gets much easier once you figure out what to do, so it's not on the same level as the Arkham City boss fight at all.

I really liked the final sequence where Boyle freezes you and starts to beat Freeze so you have to break free before he kills him, that was cool. The ending was kind of abrupt though.

One thing I'm hoping they do in Arkham Knight is insert this story DLC into the main campaign, it's much easier to access it that way instead of having to start a new different campaign from the main menu, since it worked the same way with Harley Quinn's Revenge and I didn't like it then either.

I'm trying to play it on a game where I've beaten the story and the New Game Plus, though my completion is only in the sixties. I can't imagine that being a problem.

@highlyevolved:

No because it's a bad game is what makes it bad. I didn't say AO sucks because AA and AC are good. No i said AO sucks because AO sucks.Also the mechanics are the same but it's not nearly as fluid.

Awesome game, the new batsuit looks amazing and reminds me of Bruce's suit when he fights the Talons in the City of Owls story.

@thewalkingdeadpool18: You are aware that Origin's gameplay is exactly the same as City and Asylum? So by saying it has bad gameplay you say the rest do too. Origins was great, just not as good as the others. That doesn't make it a bad game. Forexample, if you get 95 on a test, and some else gets 98, does that make your 95 absolutely atrocious and not worthy of anything? No, it doesn't.

Batman is agile character... and he need to have agile suit... i only can see Tony Stark behind that mask... !

And with that things on his arms, that prfljwlnfr or whatever is that... he will need 2-3 seconds or 4 for one punch... but with legs, man its totally second story... 6-7 seconds... even more !

And yea when i mention legs... is this lego game ?

he doesnt ALWAYS go with agility...heck even in his comic his bat mobile turns into a mech.... he does have some bulky armor type suits....plus this is origins, he wont have a state of the art slim heated suit right off the bat so I am fine with this

Huh? I never had any problems when I played it. No bug, freezes, or glitches. When fighting he always seemed slow and while that bothered me a lot, I just chalked it up to , "I'm new to crime fighting and I'm getting my ass handed to me, better exit stage left, regroup and come back with a vengeance." Pun was not intended but hey I like the way rolls out. Was the plot that bad? I enjoyed it greatly, really tied together the Joker Bat relationship in Arkham for me. Drifted from the advertisement but hey if you want to sell a lie you let the media do it for you. Besides when has any Batman cases been exactly what you they said it was gonna be. You in thinking easy peasy it's ABC you come out like damn man things got to weird and outta hand. It's Gotham, It's the Nature of the Beast, nothing is ever what it seems.

@shallbecomeabattoo: Thank you! I've been waiting for someone to say that. I never had much of a problem playing the game and I loved it! Yeah, the game had a couple of glitches, but it was never so much that the game was unplayable. I was always able to breeze through even with the glitches. I only had to reset my Xbox 360 twice on my entire gameplay. So, I don't understand why people complain about never finishing the game. I just assume those people suck at the game terribly and looking for an excuse for it.

because my game was broken. i had a game breaking bug lol how is that my fault or me sucking? lol i didnt say anything about the game being terrible but it just didnt work for me a nd many others apparently.

You know, it tickles me a bit to see Nora encased in one of these scenes. Whether or not Snyder changed things in the annual; it's nice that at least WB seems to be giving the nod to Dini's incarnation of the character.

I truly love what Snyder has done - only his changes to Fries have really bothered me. I look forward to playing this despite the potential for bugs.

Have fun with your broken garbage game that even without bugs still sucks, having the worst gameplay and the game just being total crap after that beyond stupid plot twist.

Lol ever since they patched it up, my game has been working great, i was playing it this morning. All that other stuff is your opinion, and to be honest, i couldn't give a rats A$$.

Remember you guys, this is the DLC that was so important & worthy of resources that the developers couldn't be bothered to fix a game-breaking issue with a patch! Hope it was worth it!
