By all means, AC should be great as long as they realize what was awesome and not so awesome about AA and work from there.

For example: Loads of riddles/puzzles to solve and amazing exploration = awesome. Boss fights where you don't actually fight the boss, but fight a bunch of tiny baddies instead = not so awesome.

Tons of Batman lore/references and a kickass combat system = awesome. Uninteresting and predictable story = not so awesome.

Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, and Arleen Sorkin = awesome. Forcing us to hold "X" or "A" to run... you get the idea.

EDIT: and am I the only one who's "meh" about Harley's costumes? Sex appeal aside, I like her older look.
