Arkham City has been sat in my library since it pretty much came out. Although 99% of people who will read this review will probably already have City, it will just be a case of trying to persuade you to finally dust it off and complete it.

I have poured thirty two hours roaming around Arkham, it's a stunning looking game, even for current standards. The Arkham style combat system is at its best again, similar to Asylum, you can pretty much master the system when you can work out how to time your attacks perfectly, but you can add in plenty of combos to keep things interesting.

The main story is only one of the features here, I thoroughly enjoyed the main plot, with lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing right till the very end. Like most open world games, there is plenty to do apart from the main story though, tons of side missions, collectables and challenges that will keep this wonderful game going.

If you have the Game of the Year edition, you'll also have all of the DLC too, while some of it is useless in my opinion (the challenges) the story side of it is well worth playing through as well.

Basically, if you don't have Arkham City...well, where have you been for the past few years since it almost always goes on sale for at least 75% off, and if you are part of the majority who have it, I highly recommend you put aside a few days of your busy life and play this amazing master piece.

Alfred: "Guess who I saw in the city today, master Bruce."
Batman: "Who?"
Alfred: "Not your parents"
Batman: "Alfred, why you do this?"
Alfred: "Because they told me to."
Batman: "Who?"
Alfred: "Not your parents"

Anyway, this is the best Batman game yet released. Maybe the upcoming Arkham Knight will be better

Pros +
+Joker,Ra's Al Ghul, Poison Ivy, Penguin, and more villains from Batman world
+Nice combos and gadgets
+2 Playable characters - Batman and Catwoman + DLC Robin
+Emotional story full of plot-twists
+Collectibles, side cases and more things that expands gameplay time
+Nice case-investigating system

Cons -
-Short main campaing
-Some hard-obtainable collectibles

8/10

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.

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.

The follow up to Arkham Asylum, and like any great comic book sequel, Arkham City doesn't fail to disappoint. Proving that more of a good thing can make that thing great. The amazing fight system which was implemented in the first game is back, with enough Subtle improvements to make the worlds greatest detective grin.

The story line again reads like something ripped from a comic book and brought to life for me and my fellow gamers to enjoy. Doctor Hugo Strange who mysteriously vanished years before after finding out Batman's real identity is back, and he's running Arkham City, a high tech prison designed to replace Black Gate prison as the home to Gotham's most dangerous and insane inmates. Strange has plans to enact something known as protocol 10, and as a start to his plan he captures Bruce Wayne and warns him against trying to stop his plan.

Obviously Batman will not, and can not allow this dastardly to succeed, after a thrilling escape from Custody and a run in with Penguin you're off and running on a wonderful comic adventure to stop protocol 10, stop Hugo Strange from revealing your true identity and hopefully figure out the mystery of what ties all these events together.

I'd recommend this game to people who love super hero games that don't suck, people who love beat em up's and people who love being the greatest Dectective of all time in one of the greatest super hero video games ever made. Did I mention you get to play as Catwoman...
