not a flame bait. just saying... the first boss fight in Batman AO was a lot more fun than DS fights. you had adds, dodging, blocking, batarangs etc. IMO responsive fluent combat will always be better than slow clunky combat. same goes for controls. Blizzard games have the most responsive engines, other games could potentially be better, but they just feel heavy and slow. Not to mention my DS avatar can't jump properly, things like this completely break immersion for me. DS2 combat feels awkward, slow, heavy. It's not even hard. Oh, target switching is terrible compared to Batman games. Overall I'd say DS is so massively overhyped. I'm with Veteran on this one, the games are ok, but they feel like 1990's games. Stale.
