v1.1 - Great update

I updated my copy of Batman: Arkham Asylam from v1.0.2 to v1.1. I did experience the lost of custom key bindings, but these were easy to replace; took 2 minutes. I haven’t experienced any lost of any previously saved games nor all key bindings as reported by other reviewers, so this must be unique.

The new anti-aliasing is great, makes the game look a lot better. The game runs smooth with no slow down in FPS. Feral Interactive have done a wonderful job in the conversion.

For those who don’t know, Batman: Arkham Asylam (the first game in the series) is an open world game where you play Batman, fighting enemies and solving puzzles. The game can be difficult at times which I find great; I hate games that are too easy.

This game is totally worth your coin, I highly recommend it. Please check the system requirements before you purchase.

*Running game on iMac (late 2012), 2GB nVidia 680MX, 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive. Multi button mouse like a Razer Naga is recommended.

Need another upgrade already!

NOTE: this is a review of the July 2015 upgrade, not this great game (which I think I previously rated at 4 or 5 stars)

Ok - so the game worked fine until this upgrade - but having opened it this morning I find all the key binding are unassigned! I have to re-enter them all manually! Ok - I can accept that key binding I’d previously altered might revert to a default binding - but to have no keys at all assigned? Come on!!!

shody update

I downloaded this game and was really enjoying playing it until i updated to version 1.1 now the game is unplayable. no key bindings and it won’t let you reset them manually. Very disappointing, hopefully a new update will fix the problem soon.
