8. Character Designs Are Sort Of Lame
For as beautiful as all the games in the series are in terms of graphics and world-design, the character designs of heroes, villains and even civilians have a always been a little one-note - and occasionally, a bit cringey. All of the men are massive meatheads with shoulders broader than the Batwing, while the majority of the female villains are overly-sexualised models.
You could argue that it's in-tune with the OTT designs in the comics, but there's just not enough variety, and it comes across a bit like someone let Rob Liefeld in to do all the character art. Hell, even Commissioner Gordon is presented as an Arnie-esque body-builder type (especially in Asylum). His moustache alone has more muscles than most gym-goers.
It's not a huge deal, but considering just how imaginative the world design is in these games, it was always a shame to see character models limited to essentially two basic types.
