Gameloft to Bring the Dark Knight to Android this Summer, Heck Yes

Gameloft released a teaser trailer for an upcoming Dark Knight Rises game that is to launch on Android and iOS this summer. Besides saying that it looks totally awesome and kick-a**, we really hope Gameloft serves this title right and makes a game that people want to spend their cash on. Check the trailer out below and let us know what you think.

    Somebody give a quick breakdown of the Gameloft hate

  • LordStickMax

    I wonder if rocksteady is getting a check

  • Jeff Metzger

    This looks terrible. After playing the Arkham series, why would you bother with this.

  • elemeno

    I haven’t really loved any Gameloft games I’ve tried but I’ll probably get this one. I hope they don’t screw it up.

    This can’t fail! Everyone knows games based on movies are always awesome!

  • SolipsisticPsychologist

    Haha! Gameloft doing a licensed title and not just ripping off a licensed title! Now that is pure irony! Ahahahahaha! I think I’ll stick to Arkham City on my 360, but thanks, haha! Plus, Gameloft has notorious bad customer service and they just are a poor company overall, but nice plug.

    awesome

  • AlexKCMO

    If the game is similar to the “Arkham” style games, this could be great. A bluetooth controller or keyboard/mouse combo is a must.

    Might as well have a PC at that point, but this could be great on a docked Transformer.

      I doubt Rocksteady would allow them to make this similar to the Arkham games. I also doubt this game will run on my DX.

    Any Michael Keaton cameos?

    / “I’m Batman”

  • ddevito

    it would be bad ass for devs to place in the devices they write the games for in the game itself.

    Batman pulling out his GNex or Transformer Prime tablet would be sweet.

    I’m skeptical, movie games usually suck…

      Arkham City was pretty righteous on the console :)

      • EvanTheGamer

        Exactly!

        Also, from the trailer, definitely does look similar to Arkham City in terms of gameplay and animation, the way The Bat moves and what not. Hope it’s awesome!

        Arkham City wasn’t a “movie game”, it was a licensed comic book game.

        And gameloft didn’t contribute to it in the least, then again, what do they ever contribute? But hey, if they rip this one as much as they have everything, maybe it’ll be on par with a great, original studio who likes to break the mold.

        I’m sorry, the comparison I’m seeing here is ridiculous. Rocksteady makes Batman games, thus all future Batman games are stupendous. We all know Gameloft is a trash, plagiarist company who makes playable, albeit less than mediocre games.

          I totally disagree. There are only two companies that I spend money on for my mobile games; Madfinger and Gameloft. My phone is full of Gameloft games and I love them all. Once they allowed their files to be downloaded via the carrier network it was not even a decision for me. I’ve been on four, 15 hour flights in the last two years and GL and Madfinger were pretty much lifesavers on all of them.

            Allow me to retract my statement slightly, I don’t mean to say their games are horrid or unplayable, or for that matter not fun, but I do mean to say that all (that I have ever seen) have been blatant rip-offs of console games where the idea, story, and gameplay mechanics are too similar to be mere coincidence. How they haven’t been sued yet is beyond me. So, in summation, even if they made the greatest games ever (which they don’t) I wouldn’t support them in the slightest due to their lack of respect for creativity and those who do put hard work into crafting a genuinely good game (which is arguable when referring to CoD, but I digress).

          • New_Guy

            Ok, I will agree with you there. I don’t think anyone could argue (rationally) that NOVA is not a complete ripoff of HALO and that Asphalt is not just an iteration of Need for Speed (to name a couple). But, on the other hand, I can’t blame them for taking advantage of a market that console developers have all but dismissed. Hell, Satoru Iwata (Nintendo CEO) practically called smartphone games worthless and detrimental to the company’s bottom-line. But, you’re right. It is a wonder they have not been served as of yet.

            Ripoffs?…Yes.

            Do I really care?…Nope

            You will when someone compromises an artistic integrity that directly affects you. I don’t believe in supporting theft of any sort. I’ve had people steal art that I’ve done and tweak it just a bit to where it looks slightly different from the original, enough so that they can get away with it. In the end, they get away with it and profit from it, and that’s not cool man, not at all. But if you would like to support someone that pulls that sort of shit, be my guest.

        • SolipsisticPsychologist

          Hell yeah, you pretty much summed up what I said, but even better! Gameloft doesn’t have a creative bone in their collective body! A common saying is “Imitation is the sincerest form flattery”. Let me correct that to what it truly should say, and in the case of Gameloft is always the truth, “Imitation is the sincerest form of laziness”.

      The past few Bat Man games have been great.

      • New_Guy

        Arkham Asylum was game of the year

        • Filip

          Right but it wasn’t based off of a movie. This looks to be a promotional tie in with the movies release

          • New_Guy

            Not really, it’s just Gameloft taking advantage of an opportunity (what else is new though).
