"Could anything be better than being Batman and having a whole city to explore as well as solving a mystery in an insane asylum overrun by its inmates?"

With Arkham City's being a free roamer really caugth my attention being that usually Free Roam superhero games like the Spiderman series really gives alot of potential on games for me.
Arkham City didn't fail and in fact succeeded in suprising me more than i thougth it would. Combat is amazing, free roam never got boring being that you tend to get that Batman feel everytime you leap from one building to another and glide your way to slam over an enemy never gets old.

The story is great, intense and the campaign is almost always thrilling. Boss fights are challenging and rememberable.
Map size is rather big, but nothing special. Stealth feels rather real compared to most games. A.I feels amazingly intelligent and you get that hide for your life type of feel whenever you're taking the predator approach in a room filled with armed thugs.

You can spend alot of time playing this game garrunteed, side missions are fun on thier own, and Catwoman being an editon to the gameplay as a playable character really only makes the experience that much better.
Good story. Good combat. Good map and free roam. Spectacular campaign and only some slight character bugs.

A bat out of hell

Where Batman: Arkham Asylum was a tightly knit and focused experience built around the gorgeously Gothic and moody environments of Gotham’s main penitentiary, Batman: Arkham City is like observing a bat take its first flight out into the wide, open world. Sometimes it's a little wonky and uneven but no less sure of itself and what its intentions are now that it has learn't about the power of flight. Batman: Arkham City feels like that proverbial bat in training that is finally learning to spread its wings and fly. hits a wall or two on the way but ultimately ends up being victorious.
Where Batman: Arkham City suffers the most is that in expanding its horizons by giving Batman a bigger playground to roam - Gotham City - the cost is that while the city is often drop dead gorgeous to look at it is all rather dull to explore. Exploring Gotham City in Batman: Arkham City is a very static experience and bar a few scripted events here and there feels very much like a ghost town and not the crime riddled metropolis depicted in both the comic book and film series. While the transition from the linear experience of the first game into the more open-ended playground of the sequel might not always be the smoothest of rides there is certainly no lack of ambition on Rocksteady’s part to not try and make this the best-darned-brilliant Batman game of the moment.
If you can look past all the silly diversions and a city devoid of any actual life and focus purely on the main story-line quest then Batman: Arkham City is just as illustrious and dare I say exhilarating as its award winning predecessor. In many ways when Batman: Arkham City narrows its focus it becomes all the better for it often surpassing the brilliance of the original. However, with that being said not all side quests on offer throughout the game are frivolous time wasters and some do actually offer a peek into a city on the brink of collapse thanks to corruption and crime. It's just a pity that some of these quests don't really work at fostering the momentum that Batman has finally arrived in Gotham City to do what he does best.
Once again a litany of super-villains throw themselves at Batman with much aplomb but this time round they feel more fleshed out as each are given more space to breath. They feel better characterized this time around as each villain is given his/her own piece of the center stage (a stage that was dominated by the Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum) as the adventure unfolds. Combat remains largely unchanged although new special combo moves and gadgets are introduced this time to help keep things fresh. Also combat has been nicely overhauled in the sense that when fighting hordes of enemies it becomes easier than in the first game to actually use some of those awesome gadgets at your disposal to help turn the tide of the battle. Both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil return to reprise their roles as Batman and Joker and once again Mark Hamil steals the show. There is a certain kind of manic energy on display yet again that makes Hamils performance an utter delight to watch.

At the end of the day I can't say I am personally won over by the open world approach that Batman: Arkham City adopts but I certainly don't see it as a failure. There is a lot to enjoy here and when the game hits its stride it really shines in ways I never thought imaginable, given the pedigree of the first game. I like to see it as Rocksteady taking that first flight out into an uncharted airspace that they hopefully refine into a diamond with Batman Arkham Knight (once all the PC performance issues have been dealt with). Ultimately Batman: Arkham City emerges as a game that is definitely worthy of your attention and worth at least one complete playthrough.

Aw Batman Arkham City that game that I've loved since 2011 back then and still today. I remember getting Arkham Asylum on Xbox 360 on Christmas Day and finshed it that evening with much anticipation for a sequal. Since then I was hooked to this game franchise. I grew up on both Marvel and DC Comics as a child and still keep up with both companies as a 24 year old today. Batman was that one franchise in gaming I hated ever since the sega genesis days. Then Rocksteady suprised everyone with Batman Arkham Asylum which was far from perfect but was a darn good game as one that brought Batman back. Now we have Arkham City, oh boy. A great game that is near perfected in every way from the city art design to the crazy characters you both love or hate in one big open city. Granted its not Skyrim in size, but its very impressive in what Rocksteady has done with this game. After my lengthy time spent in this game, I still come back for more and can't seem to put this game down. Each character is crafted in this game with care and passion as evident with Rocksteady and this pays off. Many people like myself rooted for Arkham City back in 2011 for Game of the Year and to this day I still think it should have won, but Skyrim is a great game as well. Overvall if looking to be the capped crusader in all his Bat glory, then this game will help you with that and then some.

Playing this, would be a great kick off to Batman Arkham Knight as this and Batman Arkham Aslyum are essential in my opinion to play priror to Batman Arkham Knight. Kinda like playing Mass Effect 1 and 2 before Mass Effect 3 to get the full story and impact of its world.

Batman Arkham City gets a 10 out of 10 and one game I love greatly as a gamer, In all my 15+ years of gaming, Batman Arkham series is truly one of a kind for me and one I recommend to everyone to play or try out once.

Maybe you don't like Batman, maybe you don't like an excellent action-open world videogame, but definitively you are going to love Catwoman's butt.

After completing the first game and making a review on it and saying how brilliant it was, Arkham City completely SOLD IT after I beat its story.
  • Graphics: Even though the graphics have not changed that much since its predecessor, they have definitely changed for the better. The cutscenes have also improved by a great margin as well. The character's faces, even Harley Quinn's, exceptionally worked very well and they had me engaged throughout the whole experience. What I really liked was as your character goes through the story your suits that you wear show tears and scrapes on the surface and capes of your character. The characters are a strong point in this game and it really helped the story at every vantage point.

  • Story: The story was solid; I absolutely loved the story mode they set up in this universe. It was full of exciting moments where the game made you feel on edge at certain points where you felt like you had to rush things but you really did not. Without giving anything away let's ust say that the story has a couple of twists and the several collectibles that you find throughout the large map in the game make the story rather intriguing and mesmerizing. And without giving anything away to the story, let's just say that the ending of the game hit me really hard, emotionally in fact. It was more of an impact than the previous game, let alone any Batman game that I played. Overall, the story is what sold this game and I highly recommend it for everyone.

  • Gameplay: Good f***king GOD there is a lot to talk about in this game: You get to play as two characters as opposed to just one character; Batman and Catwoman. Catwoman may take some time getting used to, but it is fun to crawl around on ceilings and using that whip, and for whatever reason they decided to add a "timing" element for Catwoman when jumping on walls, and for some reason that confused me. There are now twice as many Riddler trophies to get around the environment once Catwoman becomes a characters to play as. The combat has improved dramatically; there are lot more features and abilities than the first game. There are also several types of enemies, even ones with swords that you must dodge precisely to disarm them. Most boss battles are fun and very imaginative and exciting and memorable; soem can be frustrating but most of the time you'll find yourself amazed by how many moves bosses have during each battle. I found myself reacting and screaming to all sorts of attacks, and with humorous intentions. Completing the game to 100% will set you for a good 20+ hours depending on your playstyle.

  • Overall: One of the best Batman games to ever release by Rocksteady and I highly recommend it to those who love being a detective, who love the DC universe, who love open-world games and fiding clues and solving puzzles.

Seriously, buy it right now.
