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.

A follow-up to Arkham Asylum was, I thought, a large task, considering the great success it experienced in the market. The response was overwhelming, and I was afraid that all the hype surrounding this game would ruin it for me.
I was so glad then that Arkham City did not disappoint at all, taking everything from Arkham Asylum and giving us so much more. Not only did you start with everything you already had in AA (as in all the items and weapons you had, making it truly feel like you were really just picking up from AA and continuing the story), but AC built a whole new world outside of the asylum, essentially zooming out our tiny world and jarring us with the sheer size of the city we were in.
Combat was mostly same--good and fluid--but the addition of new weapons really shook things up.
And speaking of shaking things up, Catwoman, right? wink wink
All joking aside, this was one hell of a sequel that made me excited for the next game even before it was announced.

In 2009, a game was released, a game called Batman: Arkham Asylum. I hadn't looked into it much, but I was a Batman fan and bought it (on my Xbox 360 I had at the time) I wasn't prepared for the amazing gaming experience I was about to have. Then in 2011, I heard that Arkham City was coming out and had to get it. I don't give perfect scores that often, but I must tell you that this game is fantastic. While there were miniscule problems in Arkham Asylum, I personally do not have anything bad to say about Arkham City. The story is captivating, the characters are all important, and the combat system can't be beat in Rocksteady's Arkham series. The best part of the game is the stealth (in my opinion.) When you play, you truly feel like the dark knight. The game is getting older, but do yourself a favor and just play it.

Simply one of the best games i have played. The graphics is good for those seeking visual pleasure. The game play mechanics is also one of the best I have experienced. Apart from the main missions, you have other sides quests which is good to earn more experience and such so that you will not fall behind the game itself.

Batman Arkham City is fantastic. Flying through the city is so fresh and intuitive, the combat is fun and not too easy. The story is a bit of a mishmash of Batman villains though, but fab game

Did you play Arkham Asylum? So you have to play Arkham City! More of everything: enemies, thugs, riddles (i hate some of Riddler's trophies xD ), side missions, little interesting things to do. This happens very, very rarely when i finish game completely or close to complete and Arkham City is one of these games: completed main story, almost all side missions (Riddler, i hate you) and played dlc story. Catwoman climbing is a bit tricky and needs some time to train it but is very satisfying when you master it. Harley's DLC is very short and fairly easy, but still worth to play because you can play as Robin who got some different moves and gadgets than Batman and Catwoman. This complete edition is a must buy, with just basic edition you will miss some nice things, difference in price, especially on sells is margin so choose wisely and buy GOTY.
