I absolutely loved Arkham Asylum, beat it about 3 times. Now Arkham City on the other hand...I just can't! I'm finding it hard to play most games for longer than 10 minutes, I'm just getting bored. Should I push myself through Arkham City? I'm not that far in, about two hours I think.
Well it is an open world kinda game and those can get overwhelming at times. So much to do and you really have to be determined to stick with it. Any game like this would tend to get boring after a while. Especially if you're distracted by playing other games as well.
The only problem I had with Arkham City was that the city was too predictable and boring. I wish the enemy layout changed constantly, and/or they added more variety to it.
After I while, you heard the same stuff over and over, the fights were the same over and over, there was no real incentive to take on fights, and I just wound up taking to the rooftops to AVOID fights, which made the city feel like unnecessary filler.
I like the combat, but not a huge fan of the rock/paper/scissor style of combat. The free form combat got old fast as well.

I felt the same. I came pretty close to getting the platinum in AA. For AC I barely had the motivation to finish the game. I'm generally a fan of open world games, but I think I prefer the Metroid\Castlevania style as well, at least for Batman.
It's quite overwhelming at the start because they throw loads of sub missions and tasks at you from the get go. But it's easy enough if you just follow the main story missions. You'll be in the swing of things in no time.
But yeah, I don't think it was as well crafted or engrossing as AA. The story, missions and baddies all seemed a bit random and disjointed. Still a good game though.
