Fantastic game but...,
This review is from: Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Never have I been so infuriated with a video game as I am now with Rocksteady's masterpiece. Arkham City is a great package- expanding upon Arkham Asylum in some genuinely surprising and entertaining ways. Combat is flawless, pacing exemplary and story utilizes so much of the rich Batman mythology that Arkham City (for the time being) is the most definitive Dark Knight gaming experience.
What leaves me puzzled and angry is how this great looking, great sounding, accomplished product can be spoiled by a single bug that renders it worthless. After some 10 hours into the game, with over 70 % of story mode beaten, my Xbox360 version decided that the save file is corrupted.
I might decide to start the game again, from scratch but for now I am through with Arkham City. Have no doubts this is a must-play for fans of Batman and one of the best games of this generation but also, sadly, a reminder that the titanic effort put into a product can be easily dismissed by a single glitch.

Arkham City would have been my game of the year and possiby my favourite game of all time but this bug completely ruined it for me. I had completed all the riddler challenges and trophies and I was finishing up some side missions on new game plus before I started doing the challenge maps when this happened. I would need to redo the riddler challenges to unlock all the challenge maps again so I cant see myself playing the game again.

THis also happened to me but thankfully on 20% completed, so i started it again. However when it first happened in the first Batman game, i was on the final boos (Joker) scene, and i literately threw the game in the bin. Save file error/corrupt has never happened to me in any other game. Must be specific bug, and developers should really address this
