Arkham Asylum is among my favorite games of the last decade. It has a thrilling story, excellent gameplay, and amazing characters. All if that worked so well because you were trapped in a fairly small environment with fascinating and depraved villains. I feel like Arkham City tried to do too much and lost what made it so enjoyable. It's still a fun game, and the opening few missions are a blast. After that though, the story becomes dull and uninspired. The characters aren't done quite as well as before, and it doesn't feel urgent at all. It's much too leisurely of a game when it's otherwise designed around infiltration and quick actions. The characters don't get a chance to shine because there are too many with too little screentime. Overall, it's still enjoyable, but it lost a lot of what made the first game so great, and feels liek a more hollow experience for it.
