Reviews for Batman Arkham City
Probably the best Batman video game you could find!Matimoo | June 8, 2013 | See all Matimoo's reviews »
Batman Arkham City is an excellent title with stunning graphics and exciting gameplay. The game features a large open world, with both core missions and optional puzzles, such as finding Riddler trophies. As well as Batman, new copies also come with a code to play as the mischevious Catwoman, complete with her own set of missions.
Not only is it an exceptional game, but because it's been out for a while you can grab it for a bargain! It's a win-win!
The definitive Batman experienceMattiebo | Sept. 15, 2012 | See all Mattiebo's reviews »
With Christopher Nolan's briliant Batman trilogy now at an end, it's no wonder that gamers are left wanting more, and Rocksteady have got that and then some with their brilliant Batman games series.
Arkham Asylum was an incredible game with great visuals and even better gameplay mechanics, but Arkham City sets out to improve on that formula further, and somehow it succeeds.
Unlike in Arkham Asylum, Arkham City features an open world environment. Bruce Wayne has been thrown into Arkham City; a large part of Gotham sectioned off to house some of the city's most dangerous criminals.
The story is as great as you would expect, featuring more iconic Batman characters than you could possibly name. As with Arkham Asylum, there is also a ton of fan service that comes in the form of subtle hints and secrets.
You start the game with some of the gadgets retrived in the first game, but you quickly build upon your arsenal with new tech. As you level up in the game you can spend skill points on new skills and uses for gadgets.
Riddler trophies and riddles make a return and are more challenging than ever. Also returning is a large number of the voice talent including Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.
I would recommend this game to anyone.
