Batman: Arkham City treads heavily on the foundation that Batman: Arkham Asylum built for it, with severely unexpected consequences. With the story continuing months after the intense events of Asylum, Arkham City has become the designated high security dumping ground for all the thugs and the criminally insane individuals of Gotham City. This sequel combines a brand new, ultra-deluxe and layered storyline and setting, with new and improved classic characters and mastermind villains for ultimately gratifying gameplay.
This Game of the Year Edition is jam-packed with every update that has been introduced to the game since it was originally released, as well as all the available downloadable content packs. These packs include the Catwoman, Nightwing, and Robin add-ons, amongst Challenge packs and various others. This Game of the Year Edition also introduces the final piece of downloadable content for Batman: Arkham City, entitled Harley Quinn’s Revenge. This DLC story mission allows the player to play as Batman and Robin as they set out to uncover and foil Harley Quinn’s dastardly evil plan.
As you explore Arkham City, the revised and advanced combat features will truly help you fuse with your Batman character, as the game throws you a curveball with every vicious encounter. Analyse and assess each threatening situation as Batman would, as certain enemies require certain techniques to defeat them, keeping you on your toes throughout. Utilise your incredibly honed stealth abilities for a surprise attack from the shadows, or jump into a fight head first and brawl away with your various attacks, counters, and takedowns. Prepare to encounter many of the classic Batman villains, ranging from and including The Joker, The Riddler, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, and many more, all of whom are dead set on finding ways to eliminate you.
A new arsenal of counter attacks combines with the new hotkey system, allowing you to use nearly every new gadget in your possession against any enemy. You will find yourself hunting for trouble as each battle logs up your experience points, helping you unlock various upgrades. A free-flow of this advanced weaponry definitely gives you an advantage, with incredible new gadgets at hand such as smoke pellets, freeze grenades, the remote electrical charger and much, much more.
As well as this intricate campaign, there are a slew of advanced side missions to complete, as well as the 400 Riddler challenges which have you addicted to being in this world. Along with this, one of the most classic characters can become available via downloadable content: Catwoman herself. This content brings you Catwoman as a playable character, who has her own missions, Riddler trophies to achieve and storyline, interwoven in to the gigantic plot of Arkham City. (Cat Emerson)

Having played Arkham Asylum, which was excellent, the next step was to purchase this game for PC and for MAC. Excellent graphics, gameplay and well worth the 10/10 from Games Radar. Well worth the money .

I like Batman Arkham City because it's a open world game and I like that you can play as Catwoman., Robin, and Nightwing. The graphics are great and I like the music that is in the game.

Batman: Arkham City GotY is an excellent game and well worth the wait. The only bad thing, like the first, is the game is too short, however, this doesn't take away from the enjoyment.

Well the first thing I can say about this game, is that it's not a typical superhero game - it's absolutely different from any others. It has awesome graphics, movement, and the free-world options are pretty good, the fighting is a bit weird, you need to get used to it, and check how to do what, but there is some pretty great stuff in there. The 2 missions that they give to you in the demo are pretty short and standard, although the voice acting is pretty good. I only played the demo so I can't say for sure, but 4 stars is my rating while this game is being delivered.
