Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3 | Edition: Standard Edition

Manufacturer's Description

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.

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.

Batman: Arkham City is the follow-up to the award-winning hit video game Batman: Arkham Asylum and delivers an authentic and gritty Batman experience.

  • Become the Dark Knight: Batman: Arkham City delivers a genuinely authentic Batman experience with advanced, compelling gameplay on every level: high-impact street brawls, nail-biting stealth, multifaceted forensic investigation, epic super-villain encounters and unexpected glimpses into Batman's tortured psychology.
  • Advanced FreeFlow combat: Batman faces highly coordinated, simultaneous attacks from every direction as Arkham's gangs bring heavy weapons and all-new AI to the fight, but Batman steps it up with twice the number of combat animations and double the range of attacks, counters and takedowns.
  • New gadgets: Batman has access to new gadgets such as the Cryptographic Sequencer V2 and Smoke Pellets, as well as new functionality for existing gadgets that expand the range of Batman's abilities without adding extra weight to his Utility Belt.
  • New story: Five-time Emmy-Award-winner Paul Dini returns to pen a brand-new story for Batman: Arkham City, taking gamers deep inside the diseased heart of Gotham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive... 23 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After some time with this game now I have found myself wholly impressed. I was a huge fan of the first of Rocksteady's Batman games (Arkham Asylum) having played it from beginning to end on numerous occasions.
Batman Arkham City takes everything that was so great about Asylum and expands upon it immeasurably, then adds a load of new stuff for you enjoyment! Firstly, after a stunning opening sequence the game drops you straight into the action in the heart of a city overrun with criminal masterminds, mindless thugs and a good smattering of doctors, security and police personel who are trying to help bring pockets of order to what is essentially a city in a state of riot.
The beauty of being dropped straight into the action is that you immediately get the impact of the scale of this game - the environment is huge and explorable in a variety of ways. Straight off the bat (sorry) you can run, jump, glide, grappel, slide throughout the city. More and more of Batman's gadgets become available throughout the game allowing for access to the tiniest corners or furthest reaches of Arkham but you are free to explore a vast amount of the city and a good deal of gadgets from minute 1.

For me, the most notable improvements have to be the fact that the larger environment has allowed for side quests to be included. In the first you pretty much went from A to B occasionally stopping to collect riddler trophies. Yes it was fun, but also gave you a fairly linear story within Arkham Asylum. In Arkham city, you have the run of the city, you ARE Batman and whilst there is a strong narrative throughout - you can feel free to help this person, destroy that danger or discover those secrets without ever feeling like you're deviating from what the game wants you to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10/10 game of the year 9 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Buy this game, you will not regret it! Excellent story, the action is so griping you never get bored. The combat looks amazing and you look like your a jarjet zo or a karata pro but its so simple to control. Its got all the characters in and is a massive area to explore, 5 times bigger the asylem. The question is were will rocksteady go next with the series?

3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity... 10 April 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I played, loved and 100% completed Arkham Asylum on both 360 and PS3 (yes, it's that good - though not perfect) so you can imagine how much I was looking forward to Arkham City. Unfortunately, it hasn't lived up to my expectations. It seems like Rocksteady have sat down and gone over Arkham Asylum, picked out the bits that were praised and decided if they just do the same again - only in much greater quantities - then the sequel will be equally as good. That's simply not the case.

Instead of five or six types of enemies to fight, we now have nine or ten. Which is fine, but Rocksteady have made the new enemies only vulnerable to one of Batman's combat moves, so fights become an exercise in picking individuals out of a crowd and trying to remember what move works on what enemy. Instead of the Arkham Asylum's perfect number of Riddler trophies to find and map system that would reveal their approximate locations, we now have four hundred to find and a hint system that requires interrogation of certain enemies (which further complicates combat).

Add in infuriating boss fights, unnecessary Catwoman segments (if I want to play as Catwoman, I'll buy a Catwoman game), distinctly dodgy sexist dialogue, no fixing of the fuzzy targeting and pinwheeling camera in combat, far too many villains and an utterly ridiculous set of PS3 trophies and the whole game just seems to crumble under its own weight.

Don't get me wrong, there are times when Arkham City is absolutely excellent - gliding through the night sky as Batman is a high water mark - yet equally there are moments where it seems to actively hate you - is there really a need for the "gloat-cam" moments after you've died cheaply because you've failed to play the game exactly as Rocksteady intended?

If you haven't played it, I recommend getting Arkham Asylum instead. If you have and want more of the same, be prepared for Arkham City to be disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 8 Jan 2012
By Tiger
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought it for my boyfriend for Christmas and it was so good I ended up watching him play the game. It was very entertaining, there are lots of side missions and items to collect through out the game so you can always be doing something different. The graphics are quite good, although we did get stuck a few bits during the game for a while but at least its challenging. It was also similar to the first one but not too similar that you would get bored, different location, tasks ect.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE! 15 Dec 2011
By AB
Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard Edition
This game is a must have! It makes it worth having a playstation, not a single moment is boring and the open world allows a sense of freedom that other games lack. There is tons of content to undertake and explore even after you have completed the main storyline. If you have a bit of spare cash and want to treat yourself look no further, this game is your answer!!!!!!!
