Description

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.

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.

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)

Catwoman announced as playable character:

As Catwoman, players will have a chance to indulge in their darker side and explore Arkham City as the infamous feline femme fatale. Complete with her own storyline in the main game, Catwoman’s adventure complements Batman’s central role and is seamlessly interwoven with his main story arc. She will also be playable in the challenge maps with her own unique combat moves, gadgetry and signature 'takedowns'.

Features:

  • Become the Dark Knight – Batman: Arkham City delivers a genuinely authentic Batman experience with advanced, compelling gameplay on every level: high-impact street brawls, nail-biting stealth, multifaceted forensic investigation, epic super-villain encounters and unexpected glimpses into Batman’s tortured psychology.
  • Advanced FreeFlow Combat – Batman faces highly coordinated, simultaneous attacks from every direction as Arkham’s gangs bring heavy weapons and all-new AI to the fight, but Batman steps it up with twice the number of combat animations and double the range of attacks, counters and takedowns.
  • New Gadgets – Batman has access to new gadgets such as the Cryptographic Sequencer V2 and Smoke Pellets, as well as new functionality for existing gadgets that expand the range of Batman’s abilities without adding extra weight to his Utility Belt.
  • New Story – Five-time Emmy-Award-winner Paul Dini returns to pen a brand-new story for Batman: Arkham City, taking gamers deep inside the diseased heart of Gotham. 
  • Arkham Has Moved – Following the closure of Arkham Asylum and Blackgate prison, Gotham’s new mayor, Quincy Sharp ordered the relocation of all inmates to Arkham City - a sprawling new super-prison five times bigger than Arkham Island, enclosing a wide variety of industrial districts, iconic locations and Gotham landmarks.  
  • Huge Cast of Characters – Players encounter numerous characters from the Batman universe, including Catwoman, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, Hugo Strange, Victor Zsasz, Calendar Man, The Joker, The Riddler and other iconic characters yet to be revealed.
  • Featured VO Talent – Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy reprise their roles as The Joker and Batman respectively.

Nice game

Batman: Arkham City is a very nice game with an okay storyline, including many characters from the Batman Universe. The abilities of the protagonists are versatile and pretty cool. Playing Catwoman brings a second point of view to the story and is quite entertaining because of her special abilities. The open world of Arkham City is big and nicely designed, and sometimes you will simply find yourself flying around just because you can. I did not give five stars for this game because I feel that Batman receives too many abilities and too big an inventory, which sometimes makes the game play a little confusing. I also find the story less satisfying than the one from the prequel Batman: Arkham Asylum. However, that is my personal opinion. This game is a lot of fun for both Batman enthusiasts and people just looking for a nice action game with trivia aspects.

Arkham City is my first ever Batman game, and I must say it has me hooked. The characters stay true to the nature of those in DC comics. Considering I have never played any of the previous games, Arkham City has done remarkably well in intriguing me. I haven't beat it yet so I'm excited about seeing some new characters unfold.

The gameplay of Batman: Arkham City doesn't feel that different from Arkham Asylum, but the city does. Secondary missions, recurring villains and some truly epic fights, it's definitely worth playing and having. The inclusion of Catwoman is also really nice.

Doesn't GRAB me

I've owned Batman: Arkham City for a couple of weeks now. It isn't too bad a game to play in fairness but it just doesn't grab my attention. I can't sit there all day on it and I'm not kept motivated enough to want more. This will probably rarely get played, I didn't think this would be the case upon purchase but if you feel you need to try it then do so. A lot of people love it and to be honest I'm a simple gamer who's hard to please. For the price this is probably worth a try.

Barkam: Arkham City is, without a doubt, one of the best games I have ever played. Not just on the Xbox 360, but on all of the videogame platforms. It has much more complexity than Arkham Asylum and you can spend lots of hours playing without getting tired of it. I would totally recommend it.

If there is a perfect game - that would be it

Let me start by saying that I had never been watching any Batman cartoons, Batman movies etc. before playing the first game (Arkham Asylum). But even so I still think that Arkham Asylum is among the best games ever made (hits like Max Payne, Half Life 2 etc. are in this list). Arkham City is even better. First of all, you can freely explore the city, go into many buildings etc. Secondly, the game is very interesting - you get really interesting story missions (and side missions) which are completely different - no monotonous gameplay. Thirdly, the graphics are awesome. The visuals are truly beautiful. I go on for hours - that's how great the game is. Sure I can find a few minor drawbacks, the biggest one being the collectibles. Who decided that 400 Riddler trophies (and that's not all!) hidden in the city and the buildings is a good idea? I remember saying pretty much the same about GTA IV collectibles, but there's "only" 100 in that, as far as I can remember. If that was the only game I had and I was into achievements - I might have found all of them. But seems pointless if you ask me. But even so can't lower the score - it's solid 5 stars. Oh, I played the game for around 7 hours yesterday. The last time I played that much was like 3-4 years ago. I guess this means I really like the game.

Great game, Definitely Game of 2011

Arkham City has one of the best mixes of action, free-flowing fighting, grapple/glide; flying system and puzzle solving; detective mode and the 440 riddler challenges. There is a great voice cast with actors being brought in from the animated series, Mark Hamill as the joker being one of the best performances. Overall it's a brilliant game and well worth a go.

This game is excellent. I didn't think they could do so much to expand on the previous hit, but they've managed to, creating an instantly playable adventure chock full of mission and side stories. I literally haven't stopped playing it since I got it last week. The only bad thing about this game is that I'm coming to the end of it. Highly recommend this title and it's precursor.

Having played the previous title Arkham Asylum I didn't think it could be bettered. This title exceeds my expectations with more gadgets, baddies , bosses and moves which doesn't take that long to get proficient with. Nice story which makes you want to just finish this bit and hours pass. Highly recommended if you liked the first one or any batman as this is a well produced title,

Batman: Arkham City

When I originally started playing Batman Arkham City, I thought it was one of the most entertaining and fun games I'd ever played, but the people at Rocksteady really outdid themselves with Arkham City. The storylines are very entertaining and keep you into the game, but the gameplay in Arkham City is so much more exciting and expansive... it blew my mind! Granted I am a Batman fan, but I think this is a great game for anyone. The extras and DLCs for this game are also above and beyond any game I've played. Being able to play as Nightwing, Robin, and Catwoman as well as Batman kept me playing even after I beat the game. A great game for anyone!

This game is much better than the first by going from linear to open world making the game much longer and giving it more variety. Also with the inclusion of a lot more enemies, including Catwoman and a cameo appearance by Robin. This is definitely for the Batman fans and even if you're not it's still one of the best AAA titles around. GET IT!
