Hi lovely people

I got Batman: Arkham City for Christmas 2011 and only got around to playing it in November 12 It was brand new (still in shrink wrap). It's wonderful!

So I get to a point where I want to play as Catwoman and enter the code that came with the game and it states that the code has already been used! Same for the Robin code. Frustrating!

Just wondered if any of you guys had the same happen to you and how did you rectify it?

Likely the code has expired due to the length of elapsed time.

You could try giving the publisher a ring- their contact details should be in the manual somewhere.

Chances are that it's been so long that you won't get much out of them, but it's worth a go.

Really? How strange..... I didn't know codes could expire.

I think I will email WB and see if there's anything they can do.

Thanks for replying

I wouldn't worry about it.

The Catwoman sections are crap anyway (IMO). They break the flow of the game and also screw up the immersion.

I deleted the DLC afterwards, so that when I do play it again I won't have to suffer it.

I know, cheers. I had read that Catwoman wasn't really worth playing. It's just that I've got like 389 Riddler trophies and I am struggling to bump that volume up with the Physical challenges so I thought the Catwoman trophies would add enough to enable me to complete The Riddler Mission of the game.

Looking online it seems indeed that is the case. Probably best looking at the page/insert the code is on. If there's any small print saying its only valid for a certain period then that's your answer. If not I think your contacting WB is a good decision

Well, I got a reply from them which basically said "tough titty!"

Oh well, I completed the game anyway. Time for another play through!

I picked up a Vita a week or two ago and the NFS code that was bundled said it expired November 2013. Surprised me that it would expire so soon.

I agree. The Catwoman parts seem pointless and just interfere with the main story.

the catwoman bits last about 20-30 minutes as the most, it's hardly intrusive, they add extra depth to the story

They don't need to be long to affect the flow of the game (by being badly paced interruptions to the main game) or the immersion (by yanking you out of being Batman). I'd hardly say they add depth to the story, either - utterly forgettable sections that don't benefit the story any way IMO.

I thought they where perfect placed, there are 4 sections
1, before you even play as batman
2,
Spoiler

3,
Spoiler

4, after the main story has ended with batman

To a certain extent they do interrupt the batman sections but that is entirely the bloody point, it builds tension

I think it would have been better to just have cutscenes, rather than pull you out of the main story to play as someone other than Batman, someone whose own story is utterly unnecessary for the main game.

I don't care what Catwoman was doing there and don't care about her side-story at all - I want to be Batman.

Still, to each their own - I don't think we'll agree on this one!

Definitely agree with this, they were awful.
