Developers take their careers in their own hands when they set out to make a superhero game. If they want the legions of comic-book fanboys to give their game their seal of approval, it has to be almost perfect. All of the canonical i's have to be...

In 2010, Rocksteady made a pie that everyone loved to eat from the first slice. So, they figured that it would be great to bake a bigger pie, so folks would eat that much more of it. And we gobbled it up just as they planned, and so we should. Batman:...

Batman: Arkham City isn’t just one of the best games of the year; it’s one of the best action games I’ve played this entire generation of consoles. Rocksteady nailed the combat, exploration, structure, atmosphere, and story in this game and it pulls...

Does Batman: Arkham City live up to the hype and surpass the original? Yes. Yes, it does.

Why would anyone actually want to be Batman? A haunted past, a life devoted to justice and no hope for a happy ending. Compared to Superman or any other major DC Comics character, Batman really doesn't have a lot going for him; no flight, no super...

The Dark Knight returns.

Tight open world design, excellent use of Batman?s rogue's gallery, freeflow combat gets plenty of gadget upgrades, fantastic voice acting

Some narrative stumbles, the dynamic costume damage makes me feel like a crappy Batman

Batman: Arkham City Reaffirms Itself as The Best Superhero Game

 

Arkham City serves as one of those sequels that renders its predecessor wholly obsolete.

Batman: Arkham Asylum did what many thought impossible. Developer Rocksteady proved that someone could, in fact, make a great comic book hero game. For once, controlling Batman felt fluid, hearing Batman, and the rest of the amazing voice cast, was...

Gameplay-wise, the best part is hands-down the open world aspect. While Rocksteady could have gone so much further, the little bit they did provide is pretty damn awesome. This is the closest we have come to having a true Batman simulator and I'm...
