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.

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.

A few years have passed since the events of Arkham Asylum. Arkham City has emerged to house the criminally insane. The dark knight is suited and booted, learning of an operation codenamed Protocol 10 being led by Hugo Strange. Joker is never far from trouble either, walled up with the other loonies of Arkham City. Batman seriously has his work out out for him in order to unveil Hugo Strange’s ultimate plan.

Arkham City doesn’t do a great job at handling all of the characters, where as Arkham Asylum kept a tight focus on the Joker. There’s a lack of continuity and flow to the story at times, in the end it makes sense, but its structure could do with some balancing.

Arkham City is the playground that Batman maniacs have been crying out for - being able to glide across shadowy rooftops, swoop down onto its rotting streets and wander into some of its abandoned establishments. The map does have plenty of variety when it comes to locations, the courthouse is decayed and criminally infested, the steelworks are grand in design and claustrophobic upon entry, then we have the large cathedral, emphasising gothic architecture and excellent vantage points. The lighting is spectacular throughout Arkham City; the moon bursts through the clouds to light up the environments.

Batman’s character model looks even more polished than the previous game. displaying the detailed damage that signifies his descent into hell. There are many other characters that showcase exemplary design. The soundtrack excels yet again, matching the mood of Batman‘s journey and his desperate struggle for survival. The voice acting is superb; Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy outdo themselves as the Joker and Batman, respectively.

With the huge success and popularity of Arkham Asylum, I'd got my hopes set to the highest standard for this game. Does it deliver? It most certainly does! Everything is bigger, better and done with much more precision.

Story
-------------------------------------------------------

Set after the events of the first game, Gotham's criminals have been moved into the new super prison called Arkham City. Inside this fortress, various criminal overlords aim to take control. Straight from the off we're introduced to Penguin and Hugo Strange and many fan faviourites such as the Joker, Two-Face, The Riddler and Mr.Freeze appear so you know that Rocksteady wanted to pull out all the stops.

This game begins with a terrific opening and a great way to introduce the world of Arkham City. You begin the game as Bruce Wayne but you know that the moment you don on the infamous Batsuit, the game REALLY begins. One of the main aims of this game is to explore Arkham City and discover what's happening and who's in charge which is a great way to come face-to-face with old villains and meet familiar faces along the way. Plus, Hugo Strange knows something about the Batman and it's a race against time to prevent him from revealing it. Overall, a solid, action-packed and terrific storyline.

If you've played the previous game, Arkham Asylum, you'll know that the look and feel of the game was dark, and the theme was almost gothic. Outside areas were dimly lit and had a eerie, creepy feel to them.
