4.0 out of 5 stars Just the game 31 Aug 2009

Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is awesome. the best Batman game yet. you can wade in and fight or go stealth and pick your rivals off. I would say the Batarang is just a cheap piece of plastic, so if you are going to buy this just buy the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Collector Box is a big Disappointment. 31 Aug 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
First: Thanks to Amazon. You are my perfect online shop, five stars plus one more for your service and reliability.

Second: Forget the EU Collector Edition of this game. The game itself is great, but the bonuses of the collector edition are a shame.

I. The material of the Batarang is the cheapest plastic I ever had in hands. I do not expect metal, but the batarang looks like a fast food restaurant toy.
II. The leather cover of the Journal is not part of the EU collector box as it is in US.
III. The cover of the discs is only a brown folder. No box. No artwork.
IV. The game box itself ist also cheap. The US version comes with a cool Baterang look, we get a paper shoe box with a hole in it.
V. The US Version is cheaper, but both versions are made in China. We get less for more money.

The whole package is a big disappointment, somehow I have the feeling, that there is nothing in the box what is worth the money or something to collect.

This was my last game from Eidos, even if the game itself is great. You do not take me to the cleaners again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst collector's edition ever 1 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't get me wrong, the game is fantastic and I love it. But the collector's edition is a complete rip-off. I was expecting to have a cool metal batarang, a replica of the 'real' one. Instead what you get is a cheap piece of plastic that is embarrassing to look at. I think most people got this because of the batarang (I did), and I expect every single one of them was sadly disappointed.

There is also a voucher code for an extra level, which doesn't really add anything to the game. It is another one of those self-contained small maps with waves of enemies showing up, there is plenty of those in the game (they are called 'challenges', which you unlock during the normal story mode).

The game itself doesn't even have a proper box so you can shelve it with your other games!

I paid £60 for this special edition and I felt ripped off. I would absolutely get this game, but the regular edition! Not this overpriced ****.

Don't get the collector's box!

2.0 out of 5 stars The Batarang Is A Lie! 28 Aug 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is a lot of fun, I will not deny it. It's a great game, and I don't agree that it's "Batman Does God of War". To me, these kinds of games are now a genre of their own, with every GOOD game carrying their own personal twists on the genre. So yes, if you like the genre that God of War and Prince of Persia embody, you will most likely enjoy this game.

However, if you're considering buying the Collector's Edition for the batarang with a stand, don't. It's a crudely made piece of black plastic with some scratches on it and a stand that is embedded in the - for lack of a better word - toy. It really bears no resemblance to the slick, lethal-looking batarang in the game. It's thick, unpainted and plastic through and through.

There are a lot of other goodies in the pack, so I would cautiously say that it's worth it, but only if the batarang - their primary selling point - is not important to your buying it at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Do not be fooled!! 28 Aug 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing the demo of Arkham asylum,i thought "THIS game is gonna be excellent!"
I heard about all the hype surrounding the 'collectors edition' and thought for £60,
can't be THAT bad..i saw a picture and review of what you got in the box..the game(obviously),
Batarang,leather bound booklet and 'making of' disc plus a nice plastic case to put it all in!!
so,without concern,i ordered my copy hoping that within a couple of years,might be a sought after
piece of history and at least i'd get my money's worth plus (maybe) getting back what i'd paid for it!!
i recieved my copy this morning and,granted the game is cool!but what you get for your money is a complete
rip off!!
NO leather bound book,just a flimsy booklet..the Batarang is so plasticky even Gamley's toy store would make
a better quality one...NO plastic hard case..just a cardboard box of sorts to keep it all in...and even the
normal PS3 disc hardcase was'nt there,,just a cardboard box for the game and 'making of' disc..
I kinda feel that anyone with an Xbox 360 have YET AGAIN got the better deal...!!(or am i just the only
one...?)
I can just about justify spending £60 for this (as i like to collect game stuff anyhow).but spending nearly
a £100 (or even more on some sites)..is just plain ludicrous...
Anyone reading this...personally,i'd get the normal game and skip the collectors edition...or at least
wait until the price comes down before investing..

2.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant game, awful "Collector's" Edition 25 Oct 2013
By Bentley
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
NOTE: This is a review for the content of the Collector's Edition of the game. While the game itself is excellent, the Collector's Edition is a total rip-off and a huge disappointment, particularly at the prices being charged these days.

Firstly, the Batarang. Looks great in the picture, doesn't it? Well, the one supplied in the box is NOTHING like the picture. It is the cheapest plastic and probably cost pennies to make. A huge let-down. I don't expect a realistic one that can be thrown, or even one made of metal... but COME ON! This looks like it came with a Happy Meal.

The US got a leather-bound book; the EU just gets a tatty, card cover.

The US got a cool box too; we just get a cardboard one.

But the worst crime, in my opinion, is the box for the game itself. There is NO plastic case for the game; instead you just get a flimsy cardboard "digipack" with awful artwork. It's DVD sized too, so doesn't sit nicely on your shelf alongside other PS3 cases.

For the money - I paid around £100 for mine - I felt truly let-down by this ill-thought out package. The game itself is truly excellent; but the Collector's Edition was a total misfire. I'd have been annoyed if I'd paid £40-£50 for this, seeing as they couldn't be bothered to include a proper case for the game... but for £100+ it's a huge, HUGE let-down. BUYER BEWARE! If you want the game, go for the standard edition. It's a much better deal than this tat.
