I just read over at gamesradar that the sequel to Batman: Arkham asylum, Batman: Arkham City is overhauling the detective mode of the game. Sefton Hill, co-founder of Rocksteady Studio‘s and game director for the sequel explained in the gamesradar article how the tweaks would enhance the approach of players in solving Riddler’s challenges.
In Arkham city, the riddler will continue on mocking the dark knight and would still leave mind-bending puzzles and exploration challenges. However solving the biggest secrets in the game will be harder this time around. These secrets can only be unlocked by an informant which the Batman needs to question. Of course you won’t have to second guess who among the thugs is the informant as the detective mode would be able to scan which thug is which.
Sounds easy enough right? Wrong!
To be able to successfully question an informant you’d need to eliminate (in this case knock them out cold) all the thugs that surrounds the said npc. It’d be quite a challenge specially with the free-flow combo chain STILL in place (do ya think they’d remove that!? I don’t think so!).
This new “tweak” for the game will definitely add more trouble for the cape crusader (and the person who is holding the controller). I like this modification if you ask me because it’d further give us the feel of how tough Bruce’ job as Gotham’s caped crusader is when he has to ‘not’ kill criminals and ‘protect’ one who may or may not have a gun trained at him too.
So Batman fans I leave this one up to you guys to decide– for me me likey!
