A slightly sequel to previous Batman's game "Batman: Arkham Asylum". Only in this game you get to play in a lot bigger area and with wider story, more to explore and more characters to discover. As previous game, it's done by Rocksteady, applying the same formula. Basically it's improved Batman: Arkham Asylum. Everything you got from Arkham Asylum is find here, only more. More villains, more missions, bigger story, more playable characters (as Catwoman, Robin) and more glitches (or bugs). But in this game those bugs will make you laugh more that be angry. I was able to see during a combat a henchman flying to the skys. Also challenges are more, but that is a minus. If you are aiming for 100% achievements, you have to do maps over and over and over and over again. And controls aren't places very well. I tried to play with a keyboard and with a controller, but I offen found Batman doing something I didn't told him to do ( like instead of running away, he took cover right next to enemy and got filled with bullets) And during a combat, Batman will attack to his desired enemy. But few bugs there and there doesn't make this game worse, it's forgivable since the story is very wide and there is a lot to discover.
After the awesome first game, Rocsteady perfected the formula, and developed a Game that takes everything that was good in the first, and takes it up to eleven! The story is ridiculous, which means, it fits perfectly in the batman lore. The villains are back, and you get some new ones too. The game area is HUGE, and this time, you can move freely in it from the beginning. There are tons of side missions, trophies, challenges and hidden quest, which can greatly elongate this game, but even the main story takes a good 12 hours to finish if you are in a rush! The boss fights are better this time, and while there are still some dudes who's only weakness is repeated punches to the face, there are many others that requires thinking, and using tactics to win. The best one is Mr.Freeze, who will adapt to your tricks, and you cant damage him the same way twice. There's a ton of DLC for this one, and while Catwoman is the longest, the others are worth the money as well. Apart from actually dressing up as a bat and fighting crime in real life, this game is the most real batman experience anyone will get.
Next to the definition of the genre of Action and Adventures should feature the cover of Arkham City. Prominently raising the bar of the outstanding Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady's new title is not only bigger and better, but also conveys the feeling of admirable inspiration from its makers. A video game simply essential for any fan; Regardless of their playable inclinations or their sympathies, or not, by the comics.
My peraonal ratings: Gameplay: 8.5/10 Story: 9.5/10 Graphics: 9/10 Overall: 9/10
Batman Arkham Asylum was great. When Arkham City was announced I thought: "can't be better". I was wrong. This game is the perfect cocktail of stealth, beat'em up, platforms, puzzles and adventure. When the story mode is finished you can play many challenges based in fighting or stealth, search Riddler's thropies and Harley Quinn's revenge. Best Superhero game. Best Beat'em up game.
