Batman: Arkham City
Batman, you finally have a good game.
If you are sick and tired of horrible licensed games, (looking at you, Spiderman) than you have found your salvation! Deny anyone who doubts this game or Batman. Any hero who can kick that much butt without the need of superpowers is obviously awesome. Gameplay is so good that it is the only thing needed to give this a 10. The only flaw is that the integration of all your gadgets means that the combat controls can be rather complicated unless you have a photographic memory. However, once you find the combination of quickfire gadgets that fit your fighting style, this minor flaw is easy to ignore. Side jobs are varied and require exploring the amazing looking super prison. From hunting down a vicious serial killer to destroying canisters of super-steroids, from hunting a mysterious watcher to battling hypnotized henchman while falling down the Rabbit Hole, there is never a lack of things to do. Story is amazing and the constant twists and turns never have you predicting the outcome and keeps you guessing. Graphics are absolutely beautiful and I am suprised the developers did not use all the development time polishing the city. From the filthy streets of Arkham City to the burns on the bad end of Two-Face, graphics are beautiful. Sound is another highpoint of the game. Almost every gang of henchman has some sort of conversation about things like the weather, their bosses, or Batman, Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing. (Depending on which DLC you have.) An amazing musical score compliments all this action. If you have been hesitant about this game because of all the hate mail, get it and ignore those haters!
One of the best games of all time!!!
This game has everything that I love in a video game. There's great combat and stealth involved along with a large open-world to explore with hidden items spread all across Arkham City. Also, the side missions add a lot to the game, because it allows the inclusion of many unique villains. Though all of these features are great the storyline is what really makes it. It's totally unpredictable and keeps you guessing. Plus everyone loves the personality of the Joker which really shines through in this game. After Arkham Asylum they really stepped it up and added onto what was already great about that game. Also, the DLC that is available in the Game Of the Year version is a nice touch. Its cool to play as Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing. Overall this is a near perfect game and I look forward to getting Arkham Origins.
Best Game Ever
It is The best Game i ever played ,so many Easter eggs and side missions , i just played it all summer and finished it four time with all the side missions
Let me first say I am not a comic book fan and knew nothing about Batman coming into this series. The game is arguably the greatest video game ever made. This is the definition of perfection. This game cannot be topped!
The word above describes this game: just incredible. Maybe the best game I've ever played before. The storyline is great, the main story is long. You also have about 5 or 6 side missions as well as riddles you can solve like in the previous game. Also riddler challenge maps are great as well. There is so much to do in this game (especially if you get the Game of the Year edition, which you most certainly should because it has a lot more stuff for a dollar more!) and its so much fun, behold Batman, the greatest hero of all. He's self-made, he uses his money for good and he never kills. GET THIS!
JUST AMAZING / Wonderful
this game is amazing it is hard at some points in the game and its more for hardcore gamers amazing. I cant wait for Batman Origins its not as good as Batman Arkham Asylam but its still amazing. Igive it a Nine
Dude alright im so speechless after beating this I mean it was awesome one of the best games ever and im looking so forward to arkham origins which I will pre-order and buy at midnight but more about this title.
The campaign is great lasting about 20-21 hours for a casual gamer but for a completionist there is about 80-100 hours of gameplay but the campaign rules with ultimate twists and the graphics are nothing short of perfect. I wish I could spoil the game for you but theres no fun in that so definently try it out for yourself.
This is the best game EVER!!!!!!!!!!
THIS is the best game ever,it has a really good story and gamplay and i loved arkham asylum i luv it
This is a great batman game its really cool there's tons of gadgets and high tech stuff lots of hand to hand combat just like you might expect. I watched all the batman movies like Batman begins and dark knight and dark knight rises and I thought those movies were so cool and I wanted a game that was about batman and I saw this and I thought wow that looks awesome well I got it I played it and I was like wow this is awesome its very fun im a little hung up though trying to figure out what im supposed to do in the game.All in all its a great game if not the best batman game ever.
God I love this game!
This game is freaking amazing, even better than Batman: Arkham Asylum. it is so much fun you will play it again and again.
