Too easy- tips for those who say hard
A lot of these reviews will complain about how hard the game is. Truthfully, it is very easy! Especially compared to INJUSTICE! I played this almost straight through. I do lose a few battles, but no more than I could count on one hand.
The charging time for energy is considerably fast. It is only 5 minutes for every bar (most battles take 2-3), but every battle usually lasts about 3 minutes. You can refill your whole energy bar with one coin, which you gain by beating bosses. Due to this, you can refill and keep playing and playing.
If you choose your upgrades wisely and collect enough items, which is not hard to do, to get the next batman suit, you can beat the game very quickly.
I beat the game with Noel, which I gained from items in Downtown.
If you play in the defensive mode and upgrade your special attacks, and get a rhythm of how to use them, most battles are simple.
I usually do consecutive special attacks. Once I get the bat swarm, health recovery, and night whatever (4th special in defense), I use the health, hit with bat swarm, and then "night whatever" to gain my health recovery special back
Overall, it was fun for the day, but it could be way harder!
Too bad they DON'T WORK! I swear 500 and up points in the challenges is worth a much, much higher rank in the leader board! I have 516 points in the challenge where you are supposed to find batsuit items, and it is obviously broken, because I'm in place 2835! At first I thought it was a minor log- in type of bug, so, I restarted the app. Then, I realized the game was broken, because when I came back, I was in place 2836! I know the game was broken, because sometimes after a mission, I would go to the leader board, and it would say something believable, like place 736. Then when I go to do another, I find myself back at place 2835. Maybe it's a cosmetic error and the game really is keeping track of my score, but regardless, it is not a good feeling to have beaten the game, wracked up 516 points, and have the game glitch out and tell me I won't get a reward for playing about 47 hours to get a high score.
Blocking and Timed missions
Don't get me wrong the gameplay is fun and all but the later missions are too hard. You fight like 10 guys all with guns. It's impossible. What's also impossible are the timed missions and worst of all if they involve a boss. The cinematic animation they do is cool and but not when the timer is ticking and the cinematic action is like 10 seconds and you only have like 20 seconds left and they have less than half their health left. So ANNOYING!!!!! Another issue I have is that the enemies block too much. Every time you try to hit an enemy, guess again, they are going to block it and not do any damage. This again is annoying when there is a timer ticking down and you have like 3 other people to knockout. If you think in Injustice they block a lot, just play this game and see how much worse it is. Over all, game is fun but it's more raygy than fun. As soon as I'm done writing this review I'm deleting the app and getting something better.
