A totally fair explanation, save for one point I cannot believe.
I can understand the combat being uninteresting to some, but unsatisfying? Personally, the pure weight and power behind the punches compensated for any sort of restraint in the mechanics. When Batman hits the final thug in a room, he hits hard and you feel it too.
Or so I feel.
I like the game a lot, enough to play through it twice. Maybe I'll do full impressions later.
