Still, the silent kills are awesome enough I'll probably pick it up and playthrough during the inevitable Steam sale (I have a magic ability to trigger Steam sales just after buying games, so this time I'm going to wait.)
It gets a little better once you get more gadgets. But it's not a great game so much as it is a great Batman simulator. It's not that hard, but it's cool to do all kinds of shit to fuck with people.
I think if you focus more on how awesome it is to be Batman and less on how good or bad the game is, you'll probably enjoy it more.
