The Ultimate Experience of the Dark Knight

Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security home for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. The game features an unique combination of melee combat, stealth, investigative and speed-based challenge gameplay. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game! 22 Oct 2011
By Kieran
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Catwoman - Steel Book Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have only played about 6/7 hours of this game and i have barley touched the surface of arkham city! There is tons to do in this game, much more than in arkham asylum. Catwomen is an amazing character to play as she moves and gets around the city very differently compared to batman. at the moment, i am happely enjoyng exporing arkham city and doing side quests, let alone playing the gripping main story! The game did come a day late but im not going to dwell on that. This is an amazing game, much better than arkham asylum. Now, go do yourself a favour and buy this game! You wont regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved Arkham Asylum... 19 Nov 2011

Then you'll definitely fall head over heels for this!

In recent years, games have been all about the online experience and most developers have forgotten how to make a good story mode. Rocksteady clearly haven't. They've taken all the best parts from Arkham Asylum, added to them and then put them in this game. With all the FPS's that are being released and other games which focus on online play, it seemed as if this game might be lost in all the madness but no. It stands there, as a symbol to what other games should be like.

When the game first started, I was quite shocked at the size of the map and how many different things there is to do. This is definitely more open than B:AA and you can glide and fight your way around trying to find the hundreds of different Riddler trophies and challenges. Seriously, there are so many more than there were in B:AA so be prepared to spend a few days trying to find them!

The characters in this game are great and although you don't get to know them too well before you've beaten them to a pulp, you unlock character cards etc. which give you an insight into them if you're not a massive Batman fan. This game just has everything to keep you entertained. I've been playing it just at the weekends, since it was released and I've still not completed the story mode. I suppose the Catwoman content keeps you busy too!

If you buy this game, you will not be disappointed. I assure you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Arkham.... 22 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Catwoman - Steel Book Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
***Mild Spoilers***

I was a HUGE fan of Batman: Arkham Asylum, with its rich level of detail and inclusion of so many of the classic characters. To me, and many other fans of the Bat, there was just no way to top it. How wrong we were. If there was one fault with the near-perfect Arkham Asylum, it was that there was NO GOTHAM! One of the central parts of Batman is his film-noire, industrial, neon-lit city and the Asylum, for all its lovingly-crafted design, just wasn't Gotham City. Arkham City, however, is. To be exact, the New Arkham is a walled-off section of North Gotham that can hold any super-criminal or other miscreant. Naturally, having a massive hub of the criminal element on your doorstep is not what Batman wants, and so he uses his considerable public presence as billioanre Bruce Wayne to try and have the place shut down. Big Mistake. Before long, Bruce is nabbed by some guards and thrown into the Asylum - which is being run by the nefarious Hugo Strange. A quick Batwing drop-off later, and Batman is ready for action.

Arkham City is like a distilled Gotham City. Flashing neon signs? Check. Industrial factories belching smoke? Check. A giant Bat-Signal on the horizon? You bet! Everything that a Bat-fan could want from a virtual Gotham is in Arkham City, down to Crime Alley (where young Bruce watched his parents gunned down) and the Ace Chemicals Factory (where the Joker was born out of an experimental chemical vat). In fact, anything that a Bat-fan could want in a game, IS HERE! Name a Batman villain, and the odds are - they're in Arkham. I consider myself a Batman devotee and there were some baddies in here that I hadn't even heard of.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy 5 out of 5 22 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Catwoman - Steel Book Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was originally waiting to buy this on PC which is going to be released at a later date but alas, I just couldn't help myself picking this up for my 360. Like most people, I had so much fun with Batman AA that my anticipation for AC was at an all time high. Thankfully AC doesn't disappoint and - depending on your viewpoint - significantly improves in almost every aspect over AA.

Anyone who did play AA will find AC almost totally familiar right from the get go - which is a good thing because you're thrown right into the action almost straight away. Camera, movement, fighting etc are basically identical to their predecessors in AA. However it should be noted that moving around is now much better in AC with a couple of new abilities thrown into the mix for travelling across the city. Tied in with your new found mobility are several additional attack options - all of which improve your fluidity and kick ass power as the Dark Night.

The city environment is a star in itself... complex street layouts, meticulous detail poured into each and every structure. The gothic art and feel of Gotham city is all here present and correct. As I said before I will be picking this up again for my PC at a later date but regardless of what you play AC on it is a beautiful game to look at. Even more so when one considers how big the map is, not counting interiors. You can tell a lot of effort has been poured into this by some serious talent. It's one of those games.

The aspect of AC that may catch AA vets off guard is the pacing. Don't get me wrong I like side missions, I enjoy having other things to do etc.

But there is SO MUCH to do in AC that at times it can often feel a little over whelming.
