The Riddler's Final Challenge in Arkham City

Posted on Friday, December 16 @ 15:48:54 Eastern by

Now that all the new releases have slowed down, I've managed to head back and play a little bit more of this Fall's biggest games. Of course, that means mopping up Riddler trophies in Batman: Arkham City. I love the game. Looooove the game.

But...

The final Riddler challenge was a bit of a let down. It was so much easier than the previous death-traps. It was hardly a difficult maze. And even messing with the Riddler once I'd freed the hostages wasn't nearly as entertaining as pulling the tape off and putting it back on Harley Quinn's mouth.

For those of you who haven't finished Arkham Asylum's lengthy trophy hide-and-seek, you don't actually confront the Riddler in that game. Instead, you hear the authorities busting down the door and arresting the Riddler over your radio. In Arkham City you get to stomp on his head... but it wasn't nearly as entertaining.

Maybe I hyped myself up too much or my expectations were too high. Regardless, I would have like something more from this mental victory over the squabbling, snivveling E. Nigma.
