Batman: Arkham City takes the concept and core mechanics of the first game and improves on the formula. Following the start of the open world craze, this game took a more modern approach to story and level design. Out went the area based world and in came the side missions. As far as the story goes, City tries to take a more serious route, but still keeps a healthy amount of zaniness - which is kind of inevitable whenever the Joker is involved. It involves a lot of the same villains as the first one but also introduces some new ones, whose stories are mostly explored through side quests. The gameplay feels a lot tighter than the previous game but still keep some of the gamey aspects that made it so fun to play All in all, this feels like a more competent and accessible game than Asylum - although both have their charm - and feels like the logical evolution of the series into the modern era of gaming.
Do not call Batman: Arkham City as an ordinary game! This game is perfectly worthy of all the awards it has found. It's not possible to imagine this title without the "Best of the Year" on the game cover. Whatever I say about how fascinating this game is , there would be still much more to mention and i simply can't say all of them ! Batman: Arkham City's experience is essential, although it is unlikely that maybe there are many people who has experienced this masterpiece, but the re-experience of this is undoubtedly necessary. "Batman: Arkham City" in true meaning of the word is a recurrent epic. The masterpiece of the seventh generation. That means good greed! Now that many years have passed since the release of this title, no other title has not yet been released like that. So if you were going to step into the world of Batman: Arkham City , Be sure to prepare yourself for an epic battle before. The battle that joins the Woods in the cold cold winter and is full of challenges with plenty of challenges. Let me repeat it again. "Batman: Arkham City" has an epic storyline that combines it with enhanced gameplay as well as its great graphics, without a doubt, it will take weeks to enjoy. The decision is yours!
Without exaggeration, Batman: Arkham City is one of the finest games of the seventh generation and the era of the game industry and all players must experience it. The game is based on its straight but sophisticated story, which occurs at every moment in a new way, and its narrative is divided into different parts, which, with its little gameplay and its memorial, with the help of excellent graphics and acceptable music, reviews and Getting very positive feedback that really deserved them. As a result, if you have not been able to experience the title yet, do not wait a bit, and you will definitely experience it. And if you've played the game before, it's recommended to replay it because the title is full of positive and clear points.
And he's better than ever. This game is phenominal, in...almost everything. The combat is great (Get kicked, criminal scum), the story is amazing, the voice actors (While they could use a small bit of work every now and then) are great at their job, and- Just get the game, and see for yourself. Trust me, it's worth it. By the way, this is all coming from a guy who doesn't even look at that much Batman stuff.
As the sequel to the amazing Arkham Asylum, City had a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it's not only on par with the original, but in many ways surpasses it. With NG+, more collectibles, more sidequests, and plenty more iconic enemies to beat down, this game really has it all. Most importantly, the combat is still response as ever, and they barely changed anything, only adding new gadgets to Batman's arsenal. After all, "If it ain't broke don't fix it," and Asylum's combat was anything but. Plus, the story is incredible, and even though it goes entirely off the rails for a while, it never stops being a fun ride. The entire climax feels like multiple mind-blowing twists in a row, and they do not disappoint. I think the only criticism I have of this game are the Riddler sidequests, which involve the most blatantly obvious riddles ever riddled. Example, "I am a window you can't see through, but you can see you! This answer may require some REFLECTION." It will challenge your mental prowess only by bludgeoning it with simplicity. It will play games with your head, making you think its too easy, they must be setting up for a trick question, the answer to this one CAN'T be my own shadow, it's too obvious! You're wrong. Shouldn't second-guess yourself, Batman.
