If you still care, The Dark Knight Rises game has finally hit Windows Phone
So, The Dark Knight Rises video game from Gameloft was released for iOS and Android the same day that the movie itself was released, which was July 20th, 2012. Now, exactly eight months later, Gameloft has finally released The Dark Knight Rises for Windows Phone users.

The game is basically a straight port of the same game that has been on other platforms. It's a 3D action game, where you are Batman, and you go through the general storyline of The Dark Knight Rises. The game was quite good on iOS and Android, but the early reviews on Windows Phone say that the game isn't properly optimized and the frame rate can get pretty bad on the Nokia Lumia 920. 

Given the performance issues, it may not be worth the $6.99 to get a game that is 8 months old. We'd suggest that you at least wait for a performance update. If you want to try out the game anyway, just head over to the Windows Phone Store.

Title says if you still care. What a bunch of fanboyism. It's hard to get to the real news on this site because you have to weed through all the unprofessional derogatory comments by the authors.

It's nothing against the platform. My issue is with Gameloft who took 8 months to release a game that still wasn't optimized properly, doesn't rum well on the platform's flagship device, and costs $7. That's unacceptable, and any fan of WP should be pissed at Gameloft.

It looks like they dont want to push or make games for Wp8 platform.

They should be more pissed with Wp8 not Gameloft.
That shows there are no demand for this!

i wonder:
1.how do you think they could release a game for a platform that wasn`t released that time,what are you talking about.windows phone 8 was released in 29 october if you know what i mean
2. why do people comment here without knowing what are they saying.first do some research and maybe then you could troll someone.
3.why cant you people be sincere and even if you are in another platform put a good comment if you like an article or if you don`t just skip it,instead of being As$H0les

"if you still care"... not every gamer gives a squat about late arrival of a game while playing, Mr. Author.

Michael, I used to like your articles, but lately, they are full of fanboyism, or rather, hatred towards a certain OS/Manufacturer.

WP8 is a new OS, I am using it, and compared to android, it still has many shortcomings, but please, give some credits when it's due. I am a fan of android, but I have to say that I am impressed very much by WP8. It has some things iOS doesn't have (BT file transfer, anyone? or the ability to tweak camera settings) and android doesn't have (the integration seen in People and Me hub, Kid's Corner), while at the same time it has its shortcomings, too (No system wide file explorer, relatively limited apps).

So please, be a little more professional like you were used to be by not saying "If you still care..."

What truth? The author asked if windows phone users still care, & seems like they do- that's the truth. Nothing so hurtful here, unless some random trolls get butthurt of this truth.
