Batman Arkham City
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

You play as the Dark Knight, in a third-person adventure – involving lots of action (fighting) as well as strategy, detective work and puzzle solving. For this game, part of Gotham City has been sectioned off behind fortified walls, serving as a huge prison to house all sorts of criminals and other undesirables – and it’s here, in what’s known as Arkham City, that you must work out what’s going on, figure out who’s behind it, and stop them from completing their evil plans.
This is a vastly expanded world to play in, and there are lots of enemies to fight ... from Bane to Poison Ivy, from Mr Freeze to the Penguin. The 'big' villains are the Joker (with Harley Quinn), Hugo Strange, and Ra's al Ghul. And, throughout the game, there's lots of puzzles to solve and death traps to survive as created by the Riddler. Arkham City is an open world environment, and you have total control over Batman – who is able to demonstrate amazing free-flow combat, as well as an arsenal of gadgets.
It's a game involving fantastic graphics, a great soundtrack, wonderful voice acting, and an interesting story (written by Paul Dini). It is rather more diffuse as a plot as compared to the earlier 'Asylum', but the world in this game is far more immense and allows for multiple stories to be developed. If you enjoyed ‘Arkham Asylum’ (or any of the other games in this series), you’ll like this one.
This is the standard edition of the game … to access to additional content (e.g. the Harley Quinn mission) you’ll need to purchase the various DLC’s. But I suggest you look around, and see if you can buy the 'Game of the Year' edition - which comes with many extras.
I thoroughly recommend this game.
Playing as Catwoman is a nice feature and it is good to play as her in the challenges. Speaking of which, the challenges on this game are definitely superior to Arkham Asylum, since there is more variety and the modifiers are very interesting and challenging.
On the negative side, having so many different things to do kind of takes away from the overall impact; I feel that sometimes, the game perhaps tries to do too much and is a bit unfocused on storyline, if that makes any sense. I think that the game is also unsure of who the main villain is - is it Strange? Joker? Penguin? - and I feel that it has less of a "direction" than Arkham Asylum.
That is just a portion of what I think, its just the main points, and overall I believe that this game has certain elements that make it better than Arkham Asylum, but it loses drama and direction in places. Still though, it is addictive and it is still very exciting to play.
(I apologise for my wording - its not a very good review at all!)
I honestly think the more "hardcore" batman fan like myself would enjoy it more as we would understand all the "references" and stuff.
but anyway this game is one of the best third person action games you can get you have loads of little gadgets and things and the whole game is free roam allowing you to grapple up to rooftops and slowly glide around the city. but im not going to say anything else Im gonna let you find out how amazing this game is.
The map itself is wide and detailed, you have (mostly) free Rome of a very large map in between missions and story lines, the characters are well done and the city is fantastic to play in and there is always some one to beat up, what more could you want?!
Initially like all recent games, I assumed the main story line would be short lived and the rest would be collecting Easter eggs, boy was I wrong! I got around 50+ hours of gaming out of this and that's before I did all of the secret missions and the side story's,!!!
I would highly recommend this as one of my new favourite games.
Great atmosphere and amazing graphics, the art design really shines. Clever and fun boss fights.
If you love Batman you are really going to love this game.
