GOTY Edition

I work at a GameStop and opened up one of the editions and it's 2 Discs. I thought the second was a movie but there was a separate code for that. This has to be one of the worst GOTY editions I've seen mainly because of box art but now it's 2 discs.

so the 2nd disc includes the DLC? you have to install then like Mafia 2 Platinum Hits edition for example?

yeah, the box art is shit, but that doesn't detract from the game at all. saying it's one of the worst GOTY because it's on 2 discs? c'mon man! that's just plain dumb.

also, dead island GOTY says hi.

Don't people prefer the dlc on a second disc? I do. Also you do realise that as the retail version is 7.8 gigs it's not possible to fit the dlc on the same disc.

I guess I did not word it properly but the Cover Art is the worst cover art out of all GOTY editions. Dont get me wrong I love the game and everything about it

As far as the second disc with all the DLC they could have just made one card with all the codes on it instead of just putting it on a disc. The DLC is not even that much spacenn

ah, then i'm in agreement with you then, the artwork is shit!

i'm sure i've read somewhere that the size of the game and accompanying dlc is over the size of what you can shovel onto a single dvd.

Not everyone has Live so it makes more sense to have it on a second disc for a single player game.

OT: Looks alright, I don't mind the cover art (Though it is a bit too much.).

I prefer the DLC on a seperate Disc. It Retains the value of the GOTY and you can also use it multiple times. I hated when Borderlands GOTY was codes, One time use, they eventually changed it to a disc. I don't mind Arkham City GOTY box art, it will just be on my book shelf anyways! :-)

So this doesn't have a separate set of achievements like Arkham Asylum GOTY?

I honestly hate DLC being on a code. I would much rather it be on disc. The obvious reason being it's a single player game and if I buy the GOTY version I should have access to all it's contents no matter what console I happen to be playing it on. Also I think it's a great value for those that have 2 or more consoles (me included) or live with roommates (like myself at one point). I remember splitting ME 2 with my roommate each of us paying $30 for it to come home and only one of us having access to the DLC.

The box art is pretty lame, but who really cares? It doesn't take from the game at all.

just so you know: the goty dlc will not work with the original game. you need the goty disc 1 in order to use them. this was confirmed from a friend of mine.

let's hope this isn't the way of the future with GOTY games. I like being able to install the DLC disc and returning it, then using my original game (Fallout/Borderlands/Mass Effect/Mafia 2)

Also confirming it doesn't work, Installed, verified working with the GOTY disc, put in the original it asked for Catwoman code, Put the GOTY back in it worked a charm.

The cover image is good, the problem people have with it is all the ego stroking, big, bright red review scores plastered all over it.

I just came back to my xbox for the first time since Feb and bought this. I was reading here for information about the game. Anyways I like getting and actual DLC dics or the DLC on the game. Makes it easier and faster to install. And adds more of a sense of value than a one time use code.

So, I understand that you can't install and use the DLC from Disc 2 with the original non-GOTY version of the game.

My question is, does the GOTY version recognize save files from the original version? I just got the GOTY version, but I don't want to open it if my saves aren't usable with it.

Alot of games these days do that and that is boiled down to purely size issues. Either the second disc, or they give you a one-time use download code, which is a horrible idea

well... the DLC adds new achievments, (Harley Quinn's DLC), although the base game does not have new ones added to it.
