5.0 out of 5 stars The Dark Knight rises! 31 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a massive fan of the first Arkham game, Arkham Asylum, this caused me to have almost crippling anticipation that this would be a bigger and better version. Disappointed? I think not!

The story is set a short while after Arkham Asylum (the plot gap can be bridged with the Batman: Arkham City comic book series) where the badly damaged Asylum has had to be shut down, and a new Prison facility has been formed by sectioning off a large area of Gotham City and putting all the inmates there instead, along with the inmates from Blackgate Prison. Bruce Wayne is arrested at the very start of the game, giving Batman access to the area.

Once inside he interacts with an excellent role call of Batman enemies including Joker (Mark Hamill outstanding as usual), Penguin, Catwoman, Two-Face, Mad Hatter, Mr Freeze, Bane, and more. Sometimes you co-operate, often you fight, but each character is given their time either in the main story or with side-missions. The story is excellent, engaging, and not entirely predictable. It wouldn't have seemed out of place as a comic story itself!

The game difficulty progresses well and eases you into new actions, gadgets and moves without it ever seeming overwhelming. There's plenty to do, the main story itself is large and constantly interesting. The side quests add extra dimensions and ask different things from you, although they can generally be a little 'go find'. Riddler trophies/challenges are also back and some can be tricky, while seeming rewarding when you finally get them!

Catwoman is also a playable character in the main story (internet connection required I believe), but her 4 missions are among the duller moments of the story. I'd rather have had Nightwing or Robin as the alternative story arc, but hey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Arkham..... 22 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard 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 Same great stuff! 22 Oct 2011
By muttley
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Arkham Asylum was Great but Arkham City is absolutley fantastic!

It's still the same great game, with the hand-to-hand combat staying pretty much the same. The basic gameplay and gliding etc is still the same as it was in Arkham Asylum, so that makes the game a little bit easier. There's also many more gadgets although they are not all available at the start of the game and more upgrades. In addition to the villain based side missions there are several training missions to give you the opportunity to gain upgrades as well as a much better detective mode.

One thing particularly that I have noticed is that you might well find yourself getting caught up in so much stuff in the game. Mainly, because there is so much going on. For example, once you've completed the opening part of the main plot (in which the Joker is dying), you can either carry on, chasing after Mr. Freeze or go and have a glide around Arkham or try and find some riddler trophies. You could also go and have a go at completing one of the side missions or perhaps just explore Arkham city and beat up a few thugs while your at it. You don't know what to do next.

If you would prefer to play as catwoman at certain parts of the game then I would suggest purchasing the game new.If you buy it preowned you don't get the catwoman bundle pack pass and instead have to pay 800microsoft points for it of the marketplace.If you do play as catwoman, her sequences are good and she has a similar style of fighting to batman but of course she can do things batman can't and vice versa. But swinging through the city with her whip and crawling up walls distinctly reminds me of spider-man!

One thing, you need to know about Arkham city though is that it is massive!
