The Ultimate Experience of the Dark Knight

Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security "home" for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. The game features an unique combination of melee combat, stealth, investigative and speed-based challenge gameplay. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

Product Description

Arkham City is an open world action video game that incorporates elements of stealth and predator tactics. All of the gadgets previously obtained in the first game are present at the start of Arkham City (with the exception of the Ultra Batclaw, which is replaced with the regular Batclaw and Sonic Batarangs). Most of them have improved or new capabilities; for example, the Cryptographic Sequencer can also track signals, the line launcher now has a feature that allows Batman to flip over and launch another zipline perpendicularly across, switching directions, the remote control Batarang now has a built in brake and boost, and the grappling gun can now be used while gliding to boost Batman further up into the air. Four additional gadgets have been revealed: smoke pellets to confuse armed enemies when spotted by them, the Remote Electrical Charge which is a sniper-like taser gun used to power generators and shock enemies, ice grenades used to freeze enemies and make pathways through water, and a balled rope for tying up enemies. The game incorporates more puzzle elements; the use of Batman's "Detective Mode", which highlights elements such as enemy skeletons and clues on-screen, is used to perform forensic activities such as tracing the origin of a sniper round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conquests of the Caped Crusader October 18, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Anybody who has played Batman: Arkham Asylum and loved it knows precisely why it was such an amazing game. Take one part Matrix: Path of Neo for epic, super-human martial arts beat-em up; ad in another part Splinter Cell style sneaking around in dark environments for tense moments that test skill and patience; throw in some cool gadgetry to help you along the way like in Ape Escape; mix it in with amazing graphics, superb voice actors, and arguably the greatest super-hero ever and you had Batman: Arkahm Asylum.

So, how much more can such an already amazing game offer us if given a sequel? Apparently, a whole lot more.

If you can believe it, the intro to Arkham City is even better and more pulse-pounding than the intro to the first. You start off, not as Batman, but as Bruce Wayne, who is lobbying against Arkham City. I won't give anything away about what soon happens to our seemingly mild-mannered aristocrat, but I will say this...laying the beat down on some thugs as the boy-billionaire is one of coolest experiences I've had in gaming.

Soon afterwards, you suit up. Now you are Batman, but this isn't a self-contained island you're dealing with anymore. This is a no man's land. Pouncing on an unsuspecting group of baddies isn't as simple as it used to be; there are always more goons lurking around the corners, ready to jump into the fray like a vicious pack of wolves. More than once you'll find yourself overwhelmed and having to flee a fight while the stinging insults of said goons follow in your wake. Take my advice and just let it go. Survival is the name of the game.

If you've been watching Youtube then you've no doubt seen Batman's new flight mechanics.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the perspective of the gift-giver/girlfriend... October 31, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Full disclosure: I bought this knowing with 100% certainty that I will never ever play it. And, since we got it, I haven't. But I'm going to approach this review from another perspective entirely: that of the girlfriend.

My boyfriend's birthday was the day after this game was released. I picked up Batman Arkham Asylum: Game of the Year Greatest Hits for him last year and he loved it, so I was well prepared this year and placed my pre-order months in advance. When he finally was able to open it on his birthday, my boyfriend was thrilled and couldn't wait to play the game that had been hyped as the best game to be released in 2011.

Now, I don't avoid playing these kind of games because I'm a girl. I'm well aware there are heaps of girl-gamers out there who will eat this game up, but I'm not going to lie and pretend I'm one of them. I cripple under the pressure of playing dark and gloomy high-stakes video games. I'm one of those people who panics when the characters are shooting at me so I'm usually dead before I've even completed one percent of the gameplay. Little Big Planet 1 & 2 and the Lego games are more my speed (lame, I know...) That said, I'm the kind of person who enjoys being the co-pilot, so to speak. My boyfriend will play this game for hours on our HDTV and, if nothing better is going on, I'll sit beside him and watch. I often catch little things he misses, like the side missions, Ridler trophies, level up's, etc. I'm sure this could probably get annoying, but I try to keep my mouth shut as much as possible and act only as an occasional assistant.

But from the perspective of the girlfriend who loses her boyfriend for hours (and sometimes days!

5.0 out of 5 stars This game lives up to the hype in every way December 28, 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed Batman: Arkham Asylum so I expected big things here. Thankfully, Arkham City keeps all the good elements of the first game, makes some improvements, and adds enough new elements that the experience still feels fresh.

The one major downside to Arkham Asylum to me was the need to almost constantly use the X-ray vision mode to see where thugs were lurking around corners in order to plan stealth attacks in relatively small spaces. This time around, the city environment allows for much greater movement, and the lighting makes it easy to see enemies without going to X-ray mode, while still keeping a dark atmosphere. Strategy is still needed since some of the bad guys carry guns, but I no longer feel like I'm playing the role of a ninja, taking out one guy and scurrying back into the shadows. It's very cool to look to the sky and see the bat-signal indicating the direction of your current primary objective.

The number of melee attacks you can unlock is so extensive it felt overwhelming at first. Fortunately you have the option to have a prompt come up at the bottom of the screen when your combo meter is high enough to use advanced attacks. The more sophisticated and varied your fighting style, the more XP points you get to unlock more abilities and upgrade your armor.

Then there are the hundreds of Riddler trophies to obtain. Some are merely hidden from sight, while others are in plain view but require solving a puzzle to free them for collection. There is even a device that involves chaining letters together to form words to solve some of the riddles. There are also various challenges like gliding a certain distance, performing certain attacks successfully, and destroying Joker teeth, each of which awards a Riddler trophy.

It's not terribly original, but you still get to be Batman. So, if you liked the other two, you should get some enjoyment out of this one, especially if it's on sale.
