Yes, you have read well. Welcome to an era when Android games have nothing to envy to PSP. Those nearly 2 Gbs assure that you will get the best graphics, the best sound, the best gameplay and hours and hours of fun.
Let's go step by step. Regarding hours of fun, have it for sure. This game can be played for hours just before wearing its storyline out. However, some missions are as thrilling as gliding over half Gotham to fetch an item and battle a gang of thugs by the way. Yes, it's exciting the first two or three times, but it can get boring sometimes. Know that every mission takes from ten to fifteen minutes, so they seem nice to be played in your daily bus trips.
Gameplay looks inspired by Arkham franchise. This makes fights really entertaining and variate, with combos, counterattacks and bat-gadgets. However, out of combat gameplay can be extremely tedious, especially the first hour because it's hard to get used to controls. It's not strictly Batman -or Gameloft's- fault, but it's something endemic to any 3D environment game on a touch device.
Graphics are great. However, when Batman is fully rendered and it seems you are playing on a console, the rest of characters are poorer. In fact, some characters are really poor in comparison, and it's a pity that Gameloft hasn't put the same effort on every one of them. Regarding sound, this game is fully voiced. You can't compare this game's voice acting to computer or console games, but it's one of the few Android games that dares to include so much voices and acting stuff. Therefore, don't forget to put your headphones on.
In conclusion: it's a great game, yes it is. However, it's weight is disproportionate. It's appreciated how it follows the film plot and you won't get disappointed by purchasing it, but we'd like it better if it was smoother.

I like it it is fun
I opened the game and it was a black screen with a pop up saying "a network error has occurred, would you like to try again?"
Well, Bruce is supposed to be rich and yet he starts off broke. I can understand having In-app-purchases for a free game, but I paid for this game, so it shouldn't have that. I like the gameplay and will see if I can beat the game without spending money.
