One of my favorite games, maybe 2nd or 3rd, played it for a couple years on my Wii U until getting it on Steam, ran great on both.
Here's a review:

- Appearance
Absolutely stunning graphics (for the time anyways, I'd say it's about average for 2016) which put the even more amazing and clever designs to work, the soundtrack goes unnoticed but links up with the game pretty well too.

- Gameplay
I'd say there are about two separates ways to combat enemies in the game, both work very well. The first being straight-up punching them, with a large variety of attacks to do and very satisfying movements and noises that just make it feel right to knock hit people. The second being "predator" mode, cautiously navigating throughout the area to sneak up behind and take out your enemies one by one, the enemies tend to be nearby eachother or at least in eachothers view, so you might wait for half a minute or so to get the right moment, or use a smoke pellet and risk it, there is nothing more enjoyable than clearing a room in Arkham City without even being detected. Speaking of smoke pellets, there's about a dozen different gadgets you can use throughout this game as well, half you start out with and half you gain throughout the main story and side missions. The gadgets come extremely in handy, as does the gliding ability with Batman's cape as well as the grappling hook, lets you fly across the city without ever even touching the ground, the controls for absolutely everything are smooth and easy to grasp.

- Story
Too long and complex for me to describe well at all, but I'd call it just as dark as the Nolan films, with much more fighting, a much larger atmosphere to explore, and many more characters to interact with. Arkham City is, well, a city, large enough to be a GTA game, its riddled with easter eggs and references to the comics (which I absolutely love as a hardcore Batman fan). There's also a large cast of characters as I mentioned, larger than you can imagine, with profiles included on the Bat computer with all their basic information and origins, even irrelevant as hell villians like the Mad Hatter or Calendar Man can be found here. The main story alone is great, but half of the game comes in the side missions you can play against other villians, these are entirely optional and much shorter by the way. This game also includes a second story, taking place a couple weeks after the events of Batman: Arkham City, finally putting a close to the entire story, and therefore the city itself.

Beautiful game, solid 9/10 imo.

This is my first not-half-♥♥♥♥♥ review of any game, and so it doesn't do it justice whatsoever, to really get the jist of how great this game is, especially for a superhero videogame, you need to see it in action.

Fantastic follow up to Arkham Asylum! I bought this originally as a pre order for Xbox when it came out and I beat it the day I got it, buying it on PC years later and I did the exact same thing. Great game.

Back in 2011, I first played Arkham City on PS3, and I thought it was a near-perfect video game. A meticulously-detailed world, where every building, wall, and street thug tells a story, incredible characters oosing with wit and personality, and an expansion over the gameplay mechanics that made the original Arkham Asylum a classic is just the tip of the iceberg of what makes this game special. I, at the time, was convinced that Rocksteady could not have made a better game, and rewarded it a perfect score. There were no stupid bugs, glitches, or any breaks in the pacing. It was a long, meaty game that kept being at the top of its class from beginning to end.

Fast forward to 2016, and here I'm revisiting it again via the GOTY Edition on PC. I thought I was overhyping the game my first go-around, since it was brand new at the time, and decided to see if it still held up as highly as I once thought of it. Thankfully, good gameplay doesn't get old, and while the graphics have since been surpassed by the excellent Arkham Knight, the artistry still stands tall here. The GOTY Edition includes a variety of goodies, like costumes, new missions, and most important of them all: Catwoman.

Catwoman wasn't in my original playthrough of the game, but her inclusion in this package extends the length of the overall adventure by at least a few hours. Her adventures happen during the events of the game, and the story switches perspectives between Batman and Catwoman at certain points. The Catwoman stuff isn't essential to the main story, but it is a welcome change of pace, since she controls differently and features her own set of moves. That would be the biggest reason to get the GOTY edition over the standard one, on top of a post-story mission that is also included.

tl;dr Arkham City is the best Batman game I will probably ever play, and one of the best games of the seventh generation. Even half a decade later, the writing's on the wall. This is Rocksteady's magnum opus.

The Review
This is one of the rare cases where a sequel improves on every aspect of the original. It got all the pros of Batman: Arkham Asylum but also is more open world and less linear. The gameplay has been improved, The story is more complex, and their is more fun gadgets to play with. I can't really think of any cons for this game as it's that good.

I just want to say...

I bought this at sale, and somehow I feel ashamed of not buying it at full price. (Even though I know I cant afford it at full price)

This game is superb specially for B-man fans there.

One of the greatest combinations of gameplay, narrative, and immersion ever featured in a game.

Compared to Asylum:
Arkham City not only lives up to the expectations of its predecessor, but easily surpasses them, featuring a wider array of gadgets, a wider cast of brilliantly voiced characters, and more to do in general. Combat is improved, and doesn't feel quite so restricted, and each gadget has a wider array of applications, making all of them useful. Detective vision in city limits what else you can see, unlike asylum's simple blue filter, so while each is equally useful to see what the bat sees, you are encouraged to flip detective vision on and off, as needed. This change allows you to see much more of the extremely well detailed world of the arkham games, and goes a long way for immersion.

Graphics are a fair step up from other games of its time, and even now (2016 when this review was written), they have aged very well. The gameplay is timeless, and I can guarantee you'll spend more than a little time avoiding the mission just to grapple and glide your way around the city. The combat of the arkham series is simple, and is probably familiar to a lot of you, punch/counter/evade. However, Arkham easily does it best, encorporating gadgets and combos to make you really feel like you're the Bat. Also helping in immersion is the absolutely phenomenal voice acting, featuring Mark Hamill's immortal joker, Nolan North's beautifully twisted Penguin, and the multi-talented Troy Baker as Two-Face, in addition to a few other Gotham inhabitants. Under the Bat's cowl is Kevin Conroy, a veteran in voicing the bat, who provides a great counter to the off-the-wall performances of the rest of the cast. Most games with excellent voice acting feature their talents as a side note to the rest of the game, but City, in particular, puts its characters front and center, and every line feels as real as it could be.

Overall:
This game will hold its place as a debated top-ten game of all time, and is firmly in the top three for me. The story plays out as well as any comic line, up there with Death in/of the Family and the Killing joke in memorability , and every fight, particularly the predator encounters, is its own experience. If you're new to the Arkham games, this is a great place to start, even though it's a sequel, (story doesn't hold too many spoilers from asylum, and you don't need anything more to understand this game's line.) and get sucked into the rest of the games. This is a game everyone should experience.
