KotakuOne of the game's developers promised, however, that in at least one way, Batman may seem weaker.
Dax Ginn, marketing manager for Arkham studio Rocksteady, said that Batman's detective-vision, the high-tech filter that turns much of the game world blue and Batman's enemies easily spotted bright hues, will be less easily over-exploited in Arkham City. "It's not so much if you will use it," Ginn said, "But can you use it?"
Rocksteady developers had been saying that players of the first game used detective vision so much that they missed the beauty of the game's natural look ? and probably had an easier time getting through the game to boot. I knew Rocksteady wants Arkham City gamers to use detective vision less and assumed they'd apply a timer to it. They tried that, Ginn said, but it felt bad and very un-Batman. "He wouldn't make a gadget like that," Ginn noted. Nah, Batman would use something with better batteries than that.
