This game is absolutely fantastic! I've played it for hours and hours and still haven't got bored of it. It's fantastic and added with the dlc makes it well worth your money. I highly recommend this game!

Good visuals that don't strive to be Photo-realistic. Great satisfying combat that will leave you punching more baddies. Plenty of Combat with the main quest and all the side quest together are likely to take you around 15 hours. There are also a ton of collectibles as well as a Challenge mode which allows you to hone your skills across a bunch of maps against different enemy archetypes. Worth every penny you pay. Id recommended you get the Catwoman DLC as part of the Story is told through here and she plays differently from batman with different moves and a different way of traversing the enviorment

let's be honest when it comes to xbox, there isn't a very wide selection of action/adventure games. Especially good and well made ones. Arkham City is probably the best one out right now. Plus you get to be Batman. It's pretty much a win win situation

Rocksteady takes the superhero video game and gives it top notch graphics, a big city to explore, and a lot of things to do, whether you get into the main story, or just do the side quests. The game has great voice acting, and some of the most entertaining cutscenes in current games. Most of the scenes consist on one on ones with Batman and one of his many foes. A bundle of Batman's villains are incorporated into Arkham City, whether big roles or small ones.

Arkham City is pretty addicting. The combat system alone is like a thing of beauty. Theres nothing better than the kind game that can make you feel like a badass by doing the smallest things. Arkham City delivers that feeling big time. Even flying across the city crawling through spaces looking for those riddler trophies is fun enough to spend ages on. Even though the game is overall solid, it still has a few flaws. The game isn't all that challenging with the exception of a few parts. Flying into a group of unarmed thugs is almost too easy to beat them all. The boss fights are too easy, but still pretty fun. The story and dialogue is decent enough, thanks to Mark Hamill's great Joker.

Arkham City is one of the better action adventure games out now and should definitely be tried by those who like the genre, even if you arent into comics.
