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'.

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!
The game arrived safe & sound.
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.
Batman Arkham City is a great game with amazing graphics, an interesting plot and nice gameplay. This provides hours of fun!
Batman: Arkham City is a fantastic game.
I like Batman: Arkham City. It is very interesting.
Very happy with the speedy delivery of this product. As for the product itself... top notch! Couldn't be happier. The lad will be happy he has this for Christmas. Thanks once again Zavvi!
Batman: Arkham City is a good game at a good good price. I don't think I could ask for more!
Batman: Arkham City is a great game! It's one of the best games I've played.
I am very pleased with my purchase of Batman Arkham city. The game is great, I can't stop playing!
My first non shooter or driving game was arkham asylum. Genuinely think it is the best series of the current gen of consoles. After metroid prime on the gamecube this is my favourite game. Lots to do and a great story.
I love this game!
Amazing game and superb value! Will keep you busy for dozens of hours.
i love it, the dark knight agrees that this game is fantastic and a good sequel to arkham asylum. The service for the website was excellent and quick.
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.
Everything was fine! Good Price, good service, no problems!!
Perfect transation. Very fast delivery. Recommended!!
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.
I've been a Batman fan since I was 3 years old, and with this Batman: Arkham City game I get to realise my dream of being Batman.
The graphics are excellent! The free cat woman code inside the pack was a bonus. I think my sons will get many happy hours of game play out of this. Excellent buy and brilliant price.
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.
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.
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.
Fantastic game, very funny and long. Spanish language is included.
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 is a very good game. If I could, I would play it all day.
Batman: Arkham City is probably one of the best Xbox 360 games around. You can buy it without any doubt!
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!
In Batman: Arkham City, the challenges are harder than in Arkham Asylum. There are more villains to interact with, the story's great, there are more moves to fight with, and the environment is more open. Great game.
Batman: Arkham City is a very interesting game. Since I got the first game of this series, Arkham City became a must-have, and trust me, it's worth every penny!
Batman: Arkham City gives you the real Batman experience. Dark and cruel city with an insane story and the characters are very close to the comic book ones. Remarkable game - many thanks Rocksteady!
Batman: Arkham City is an excellent game. It takes what was great about Arkham Asylum and improves it further. Great story, excellent side missions, and an excellent atmosphere. Rocksteady has done it again.
Batman: Arkham City is a really great game. Probably the greatest game made by Marvel.
Arkham City builds on everything from Arkham Asylum, giving you access to nearly the entire roster of moves, gadgets and perks from the start but laying out new unlockables which become available as you progress. Arkham City feels like the seedy, territorial, urban sprawl you'd hope for, making gliding and grappling your way across the expansive map satisfying and endlessly cool. Top quality voice acting and gripping main and side quests. This game is tremendous be you a fan of Batman, sandbox microcosms like GTA or just straight up solid action adventure games.
A fun game as good as the last one and a great price
