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)

Batman: Arkham City was a very good fighting game, as you would expect of batman game. I enjoyed it very much. It didn't felt repetitive to me so i enjoyed it a lot, besides I'm a huge fan so i guess you can say I'm buyist. I suggest to buy this game to whomever likes a good fighting game.
Batman: Arkham City is a really cool game. I've finished it once and I'm getting ready to finish it again.
Batman Arkham City is the best Batman game. I've finished this game 3 times already, and every time I play it from start to finish, it leaves me stunned.
Batman: Arkham City is even better than Batman Arkham Asylum!
Batman: Arkham City is a top game with brilliant graphics and a great story line!
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.
