I currently can't play the game with the Catwoman DLC but will access to it later in the year. But basically, will I be missing out on an important part the experience by playing it later?

You definitely do not need it. It actually was disrupting to the experience in my opinion as she was less dynamic. Her story does not need added perspective in any way. She is just a plot device that will occur whether you have hers or not. Let me restate ... it is better without.

there are portions in the game where you play as her and see whats going in the city, but dont want to spoil anything. I found it to be quite entertianing and gives the story something extra and works really well. also there are Riddler trophies in pink around the city for you to chase as well.

It's not important at all, really. Just a side story that goes parrallel to Batman's. I actually enjoyed it, but I can see how some people were annoyed by it. Everytime something incredibly awesome happens in Batman's story, or whenever there's some kind of huge cliffhanger where Batman's in extreme danger, they cut to Catwoman.

Really underwhelming in both story and gameplay. :/ I would've preferred to play it without those sections.
