I am vengeance I am the night I AM BATMAN!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year (PS3) (Video Game)
Let's all hear a loud HURRAY for this succesful attempt at finally inventing the perfect superhero experience.
This is by far the greatest Superhero game I have ever played.
My experience with such adapatations of our modern mythological legends goes way back.
My first game of such a kind was Spiderman for the Playstation (PSX)
and even as a kid I knew that something was off, that the experience was never quite right with any of these games.
Spiderman 2 (the game based on Sam Raimi's movie) finally got the webslinging down.
But enough about Spidey and Marvel for that matter.
Arkham Asylum was a deep vibrant adaptation of the DC hero's legendary crimefighting life, but we reached a new level of epic gaming with this Sequel, where everything works the way you would want it to!
From the moment I picked it up to the moment I was done I couldn't put the game away, I had to get everything down.
First the story, then the side missions, the trophies triggered by certain events and finally the riddler trophies!
Before I knew it I had reached 100 % in story mode, everything that could be collected, completed and pulled off was done.
+ I completed every difficulty setting from Easy to normal to Hard and finally, New game + <-- which is the hardest difficulty setting
This is very rare for me since I tend to play games and give them a rest before I would even consider trying another difficulty setting.
I usually only crave story mode for my gaming kicks, but it simply wasn't enough for this game.
And I still wanted more, so on to the Playstation Network and download some beefy expansion to continue my epic adventure as the Dark Knight.
I ended up buying the whole lot of DLC and when I recently made a new friend whom so happend to be a fellow DC loving nerd, I couldn't resist gifting this very game that's got it all + an animated movie Year one (I believe it is)
PERFECT gift for a DC enthusiast, or even just a comic book fan.
If you loved the animated series as a kid like my self and many others! You HAVE to get this game, and it is essential that you get the G.O.T.Y Edition since you will crave MORE when you have ripped your way through the remaining content like a kid on christmas morning/eve
Or generally just like a drewling DC fanboy like my self.
Mark Hamill behind the Joker and Kevin Conroy THE voice of Batman, you just can't go wrong.
When I occasionally stray from my JRPG path, THIS is the kind of game that I want to claw my fingers into for weeks.
Immersive and deep, thoughtful action games like these are of the rarest kind, and you will be missing out like I did for a whole year after its official release, you will ask yourself much like I did
"Why the hell did I hesitate?"
As a fan of action games you will want this game,
but as a DC fan you NEED this game.
Hell, just writing this review made me want to play it again.
