Batman Arkham City (Base Game)
No escape from Arkham City…the sprawling mega-prison in the heart of Gotham City, home to its most violent thugs and infamous super villains. With the lives of the innocent at stake, only one man can save them and bring justice to the streets of Gotham City… Batman.
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.
Great game! A little repetitive though.adboyum | Sept. 10, 2014 | See all adboyum's reviews »
I've played the first two of the Arkham games, and this one is leaps and bounds better than the first!
I really liked the gameplay and feel of Arkham Asylum, and Arkham City has that same feel and gameplay, but a hundred times better! The significantly larger map size makes the game much more enjoyable because you're able to feel more freedom as Batman to kick some serious butt! You aren't confined to a small space in this game. The world is your oyster.
It has the same dark and menacing feel of the first game, but some awesome new gadgets that you can use!
My only one draw back is, like the first game, after endless hours of doing very similar moves, kicking some very similar butt, it does become a little bit repetitive. That only happens after hours of fun though! Definitely recommend this game!
Worthy successor to Arkham Asylum!Coalfax | Sept. 9, 2014 | See all Coalfax's reviews »
While it may have taken me awhile to actually get around to getting this followup to Arkham Asylum, it was well worth the purchase. The GOTY edition and all of its additional content was extremely entertaining, and I was almost unable to put it down for the entirety of the time it took for me to get through the story. I still have many challenges to get through as well. Voice acting was spot on, and Mark Hamill in particular will sorely be missed.

This game will be greatly enjoyed by both batman fans and those who are not. From beautiful graphics to a strong and interesting storyline, the player would be glued from the start to the finish of this game. The game play went very smoothly with no faults. Perfect details, fantastic characters and definitely one of the greatest games ever. A must for all batman fans
A game everyone should play!N2tZ | Sept. 3, 2014 | See all N2tZ's reviews »
Batman Arkham City: GOTY is an amazing game with countless hours of thug-bashing fun.
The atmosphere of Arkham City is immersive and full of surprises. Riddler trophies behind every corner and loads of riddles to look out for. The combat is great and feels natural, who doesn't love ripping a riot shield to pieces with their bare hands. The story of Arkham City is compelling and full of twists, keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The player meets many new characters and even ones from Arkham Asylum. The new playable characters are very enjoyable as well, each with a new story to experience. With the addition of the different skins for Batman, players can customize their experience by using their favorite look for the Dark Knight. The soundtrack is excellent and greatly adds to the immersion of the game.
Overall, I suggest getting Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition. You'll get hours of fun, countless of thugs to beat up, hundreds of trophies to collect and loads of side quests to solve.

Bought this game when it went on sale, and have been having an amazing time with the game.
Story is incredible, sound-work/music is very nicely done, combat isn't focused on mashing "hit" and rotating the joystick around. Overall the game has been very well developed, not to mention playing as catwoman is a nice change of pace.
