I'm currently playing through this game (bit late to it, I know) and am wondering if the game will allow me to go back to previous regions and find all the collectables (Riddler Trophies, etc) after I've completed the story - or if I need to do these as I go through the game?


Yes, you can freeplay after the end of the game in order to collect all the Riddler trophies and complete any challenges you may have missed.

This answer is applicable to the PS3 version and may be applicable to the other versions as well.

    I confirm that this is applicable to the XBox 360 version too. – Wilerson Feb 23 '11 at 16:12

    It's the same for PC. – Tamschi Feb 23 '11 at 17:11

The game does not continue, it ends immediately after the last boss fight; however you can roam around as you please just before it begins.

Spoiler about how you know you're about to reach the no-turning-back point:

When there are about 20 goons clapping and cheering for you just before the visitor's center. Once you open the door to the visitor's center, you cannot go back.

If I recall correctly there's also an auto-save just before the no-turning-back point so after finishing the game you can load it (also via "continue") and play from there - but it takes place before the final fight, so it's not a continuation.

    Perhaps one of us has a patched or updated copy of the game? I was able to reload my game and play after the end of the final boss fight. – Steve V. Feb 23 '11 at 13:38

    @Steve maybe, but it's also possible we agree but just have different definitions :) if you reload the game and play, can you fight the final boss again? – Oak Feb 23 '11 at 14:41

    No, the door to the final boss is closed but the fireworks are still going off. You can't fight the final boss again. ... I know what it might be! Are you talking about the 360 version or the PS3 version? I'm talking about PS3. – Steve V. Feb 23 '11 at 15:07
  • @Steve I see what you mean... odd. In any case I'm talking about the PC version. – Oak Feb 23 '11 at 15:23
  • I've updated my answer accordingly – Steve V. Feb 23 '11 at 15:29
