5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic No Bat-Tastic
If Arkham Asylum was anything to go by, Arkham City and The Riddler are going to make your life very very tough. Luckily for you the guys over at Brady Games have cracked the city wide open and are standing here ready to hold your trembling hand and guide you through every nook and cranny of the vast and challenging world that Rocksteady and Warner bros have brought to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Arkham Asylum Guide
The Arkham Asylum guide was brilliant and this guide, while not bad doesn't live up to its predecessor. Perhaps it's because Arkham City is a much bigger game but I find it much harder to locate the correct map in this book and the walkthrough doesn't seem as thorough and detailed as the previous book.

If Arkham Asylum was anything to go by, Arkham City and The Riddler are going to make your life very very tough. Luckily for you the guys over at Brady Games have cracked the city wide open and are standing here ready to hold your trembling hand and guide you through every nook and cranny of the vast and challenging world that Rocksteady and Warner bros have brought to the gaming world.
The Arkham City strategy guide for PS3,Xbox and PC is the only Official licensed guide to the game and to be honest its the best, sure there are a bevvy of websites and videos appearing on the interweb promising much but delivering little in the way of detail. Anyway who wants to be messing around booting up a pc and searching for the right webpage when you can have this lush book right in front of your eyes.

From the first page this thing oozes the usual quality we have gotten used to receiving from Brady Games guides, absolutely crammed with hints,tips and character bio's as well as full game mapping and details of every trophy, achievement and side mission. Not only that but theres breakdowns of every gadget that Batman has at his disposal and tips on how best to use them to subdue Gothams worst scumbags. Overall there's some 350 collectibles, riddles and maps laid out in full colour.

Now there are some purist's among us gamers that will tell you that using guides is a NoNo, but simply put if you want to experience the full depth and vision of the game, finding all the trophies, getting all the combo's and discovering all the secrets that Arkham City has hidden throughout its sprawling streets and buildings, You need this guide in your life.

Firstly the quality of this book is amazing. Just like a high quality graphic novel. Well laid out and easy to follow. I've only started using the guide but so far it has provided great hints and tips for combat. Would recommend for anyone who is daunted by the scale and complexity of some games!

This review is from: Batman Arkham City Signature Series Guide (Bradygames Signature Guides) (Paperback)
This guide is has pretty much everything you need to complete the game. It's detailed and interesting and i would recommend to anyone who is struggling with the game. I would not recommend to anyone who likes a challenge because the guide makes it too easy.

I purchased the Arkham Asylum guide, and I had a flick through the Arkham City Guide. They're very similar. The AC guide is well presented and will be of massive help to anyone unfamiliar with the DC universe. However, just as with the AA guide, there are better resources available on the web. The limitations of the printed page make it hard for Bradygames to compete against websites such as GamesRadar's Riddler guide, which has the advantage of offering video as well.
Much of the Guide is a reprint of the source material found in the game. Whilst it makes a nice accompaniment to the game, if you are happy with having an internet connection nearby, I'd say save the money.

Once again Brady Games have produced a real cracker of a strategy guide. If you buy Arkham City, do yourself a favour and grab the guide too - you'll get everything out of the game you possibly can! (not including dlc content yet, though they may bring out an updated version later on)
