    I'm happy to play as Robin, but that Robin doesn't look anything like Tim. It looks more like an older Damian who stole Timmy's staff.

    Now here is hoping for a playable Nightwing character. ^_^

    Glad this is a Best Buy deal and not Gamestop. I'm sure it will be fun playing Robin, staff and all, but I'd love the B:AC team if they let me play as Cassandra Cain or Red Hood

    I think it's a great design! Fits well with the look of the game.

    Looks good! But am I the only one who gets a bit of a Chris O'Donnell vibe from the art. It sort of makes me wonder if the creators took some inspiration from Batman Forever. Whatever--it still looks great!

    Ugh, why'd they give him the "Chris O'Donnell" hair cut? That's the last look they should be trying to replicate.

    Including Robin is cool, but that design... It just doesn't do it for me.

    I hope this becomes available as a DLC later, because I don't plan on getting this game through Best Buy.

    I too am wary of the design but I'll wait until we get to see what it looks like in-game for my final verdict.

    Everyone seems really "up in arms" about his re-design.

    First off, It looks nothing like the costume from Batman Forever or Batman & Robin.

    Just because he has a buzz-cut, does not mean they coppied the "Chris O'Donnell" Robin. Maybe Batman told him to keep it buzzed so the bad guys can't pull it out duing a fight? Seems like the best idea for the job, right?

    These games are an interpretation of the Batman universe, just like the Nolan movies. They closely represent what has been established, but they're not photo copies of the material. Maybe one day we'll have that.
    For the loot, honey, for the loot.

    I don't care what they say, that's Damian.
