Backstage at the British Academy Game Awards 2016, Best British Game winners Rocksteady Games - who won for Batman: Arkham Knight – spoke to IBTimes UK about what they thought of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros' divisive Hollywood blockbuster.
"I enjoyed it, I really enjoyed it as a film," said Arkham Knight's creative director Sefton Hill. "I think it's easy to look at films sometimes and pick holes but it was great to see Batman and Superman square off. It was a really great fight."
A follow-up question asked about the fighting style given to Ben Affleck's big screen version of the Dark Knight, and how some have said it was influenced by Batman's fighting style in the Rocksteady series.
"It's definitely a huge compliment to hear, and kind of interesting because when we were looking at Batman we looked at 300 - one of Zack Snyder's first films - and the use of slow-mo in the combat inspired some of the use of slow-mo in [our game].
"So if they were inspired by us, we were at some time inspired by them and that's great."
Batman: Arkham Knight was Rocksteady's farewell to the Arkham series, ending the story it began in 2009's Arkham Asylum. Here's our review of the game. Dawn of Justice has received damning reviews from critics and is doing decent business at the box office, but looks set to disappoint at the eyes of Warner Bros.
