Okay... so Batman has some pretty sick moves.. as does Robin and Nightwing (not really a fan of Catwoman in general..lol)... Does anybody recognise what style of fighting that they used for these characters in the game..?

Batman's fighting style (according to the comics) is a mix of various styles. And since both Dick and Tim had multiple teachers, including Bruce, it only stands to reason that their styles are mixed styles as well. I recognized bits and pieces of styles in the fighting, but it's a video game. Even when a style is specified, they don't usually get it quite right.

There are no styIes present in the game, like the above poster said, it just a mish mash of different forms.

While they are a mix, the style used the most seems to be Krav Maga.

Great video.. I've never heard of that style... My brother's really big into martial arts but hasn't played the game (3rd-person games make him dizzy) and he was asking me what styles they used after watching the Nightwing trailer.. He showed me this too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esbYyTegDCo ..kinda looks like some of the takedowns.

I figured they mashed styles a little bit but I assumed that each character would have a predominant fighting apparent... I was wondering if Nightwing's "acrobatic" style was based on anything or if they just have him doing gymnastics..

Batman is a master of Ass-Kickarte, and Catwoman a mistress of Pole-Dance-Fu.

I practice Krav Maga, it's all about disabling/disarming your opponent as quickly as possible. Good fit for Batman.

Batman has actually learned around 15 or so martial arts over the years but in the game I couldn't guess exactly what's used.

It seems exaggerated in the game, but is there a sort of style or name for jumping around taking on multiple targets like Bats does? For example when he dives forward from across the screen to kick or slug someone far away. It almost reminds me of how Spider-Man fights at times.

Not as such, Capoiera comes to mind but none of the moves fit. Wushu perhaps.

The problem with trying to diagnose Batman's style is that it's so mixed and most writers and artists don't know enough about the styles that the characters know that it all becomes somewhat generic. I mean, I've studied a form of gung fu most of my life that is all about disabling and disarming your opponent as quickly as possible, and it bares a resemblance to what we see Bats use in this game.

Personally, I think that any attributing to any particular style that he uses in this game is matrixing. We see what we know, and we see Bats using techniques similar to what we use in our own styles, so we attribute it to what we study.

But then again, I've practiced against people who study Krav Maga, and there are a surprising number of similarities. Not just in technique, but in execution of the technique.
