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.

Don't work on steam

Batman: Arkham City has a few improvements compared to Asylum. I think, it's the best incarnation of Batman. The game uses "Games for windows live". It doesn't affect the game.

Batman: Arkham City

Really good game. Only improvements compared to Arkham Asylum. It uses Games for Windows Live which is a huge minus, but doesn't affect the game itself (if you manage to get it working due to horrible DRM and other possible GFWL issues).

Batman - Arkham City

Quite frankly Arkham City is amazing, I never played Arkham Asylum but after playing a demo of this I went out and bought it, the combat is fantastic and flows so well. The graphics are stunning and the storyline is great. Quite simply you cannot miss out on this game, in my opinion it is one of the games of 2011!

"To the Batcave" *clutching copy of game*

What can I say? If you missed the first outing, then you missed the gaming equivalent of 'The Dark Knight' movie: that is to say, the best incarnation of batman in a game ever. This game just raises the bar even higher. The story is rich, engaging and filled to overflowing with Gotham lore. The fighting mechanics are easy to grasp, organic and brutally effective. The gadgets are spot on and fun to use. The graphics beautifully dark (and jaw dropping on full whack) and the sound adds the extra depth that graphic alone can't. Sure it's not perfect and can be frustrating at times, especially when trying to complete some of the Riddlers challenges and the AR training missions but that makes it all the more rewarding when you do finally complete them. I could spout superlatives for ages over how much I love this game but I'll leave you this piece of advice instead: Stop wasting your time reading this, buy it and find out for yourself: It doesn't matter what format you play it on just play it!!

An excellent sequel

Batman: Arkham City includes everything which made Arkham Asylum a great game and adds an open world with interesting side missions. If you enjoy action-adventure games you can't go wrong with this one.

Best Game Ever!

Having played Arkham Asylum , I expected nothing more than perfect from this game and was not disappointed ! Better graphics More side missions More Gadgets More enemies Most of all 5 times bigger than the original !! 10/10

Excellent sequel

If you played Batman: Arkham Asylum, then you know how the game's mechanics work pretty much. The game expands on all the ideas and then offers some more. Free-roaming the Arkham city is how you travel and exploring the city is great fun. The game is rich with content that varies from Action, Stealth and Puzzles. Excellent game from start to finish.

Excellent

An amazing game and absolutely the best superhero game. Must buy.

Arkham City

Batman fans and followers of the action-adventure genre will have a blast if they buy this game. It is brilliant and builds upon its predecessor. One of the better games of 2009, Arkham Asylum was brilliant and a total surprise. But everyone saw Arkham City coming due to the hype generated by the first game. After 6 hours of gameplay I couldn't spot many differences, compared to the first game, but I don't think this is a drawback. There are some additions to Batman's arsenal, a better story, a wider game area and of course the unique gameplay of Catwoman. You won't regret it.
