* This review contains SPOILERS for Justice League. *
Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder (and to some extent, Joss Whedon as well) is a totally empty, totally disappointing experience. Once again, you have a film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) that tries to tackle everything at once, rather than sensibly or properly developing things in a way that is smart, comprehensive, fulfilling or satisfying.

However, Rocksteady didn’t listen to the old mantra of; if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and forced in certain aspects which make the game frustrating, and at times a step in the wrong direction when traditional Arkham games are considered.
