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)

If you doubt about getting this title, please forget that and get it as soon as possible. One of the best games of this consoles generation.
I just finished game on HARD, and can say it`s simply briliant. I am very satisfied, because Rocksteady`s hard difficulty is realy hard. Now the new game plus, changing batsuits, more and more.......GOTY.
This sequel far surpasses the excellent Arkham Asylum. You get an open world game with an incredibly detailed city. Loads of stuff to do after the main story like challenges, riddles and trophy collecting. Great voice cast and music.
Simply the best Batman videogame. Especially for fans of Batman. A Must Have.
What can I say - its Batman! Awesome game - especially with all the dlc included.
Batman: Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition is a great game by itself. However, with all the DLC it makes this purchase that much sweeter. In addition, it's the cheapest I have ever seen it. Awesome!
Batman: Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition is a really nice game. It includes all the DLC. It has fun game play, with lots of things to explore in Arkham City, and lots of side missions. I really liked the fighting system.
Batman: Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition is an excellent tie-in. It's a good game and has a beautiful story.
In short, a great game with a lot of lovely additions! The game goes further on the arkham asylum and expanded the gameplay and story border! A must have game in your collection!
Incredible Value for money - All the Downloadable Content on second disc and the game is superb! Such smooth gameplay and the scenes of Gotham City are amazing as you hit the rooftops and crane gantry's! Totally immersive gameplay - You can stick to the one mission or you can allow yourself to be distracted by various smaller challenges and investigations.Personally, allowing the sub-missions to vary my game and leaving the collection of Riddler Trophies until the end. If you liked Arkham Asylum then you'll love this game - The city appears massive! Buy it and enjoy!
