Batman: Arkham Asylum didn't get much wrong, but its boss fights were a notable exception.In short: They pitted you against monstrous super-thug versions of the Batman villains you know and hate (but also kind of love) rather than more ... relatable incarnations. In a new interview with Gamasutra, Rocksteady marketing manager Dax Ginns circuitously apologizes, but says it'll be better when the asylum expands to Arkham City.
"They're humans," Ginns said. "They're mortal. Batman's a mortal guy, but he's a total badass, so we've got to make sure that all of a sudden someone like Riddler doesn't just develop superhuman strength because it makes gameplay sense. No. Riddler is a smart guy but he's not a powerhouse, and so the combat between Batman and Riddler exists on the intellectual level."
God, the Crazy Quilt level is going to be messed up.
