We are hearing reported issues arising on the new Batman Arkham City game.

With PC Batman releasing a month after Console Batman PC gamers were expecting a few nice tweaks to the look and feel of the game...

Well it seems that the Batman Arkham City DX 11 features are poorly coded and a potential resource drain. Turning off individual DX11 features does not cut it though. You need to disable the entire suite of Batmans Direct X 11 features to get your Frames Per Second to jump back up to playable levels again.

In the meantime, a workaround for this issue is to run the game with DX 9 instead of DX 11. Instructions on how to turn off DX 11 are listed below. 

Here is a cut from the official forum addressing the issue.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience with your gameplay experience and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.

Instructions for changing DX 11 to DX 9
The Launcher can be accessed on Games for Windows LIVE and Steam to change DX 11 to DX 9 in the Settings menu. 
Change both DirectX 11 Features and DirectX 11 Tessellation to OFF.

Games for Windows LIVE
Start > All Programs > Games > Right click on Batman: Arkham City and select Launcher > Settings
1. Open the Start Menu
2. Select All Programs and then the Games folder
3. Right click on Batman: Arkham City and select Launcher
4. Choose Settings then click on the arrow next to DX options to change
Steam:
Launch Steam Client > Library > Right click on Batman: Arkham City > Configure PC Options
1. Open Steam
2. Select Library
3. Right click on Batman: Arkham City and select Configure PC Options
4. Choose Settings then click on the arrow next to DX options to change

The first post after this is from a person rightly saying, How did an issue on every DX11 version of the game slip past testing.

Anyway, despite this there are little surprises that the game is shaping up into a good play, but will it grab your attention away from all the other awesome releases lately or best to wait until it reduces in price?
