Batman: Arkham City Review

 

To say that Batman: Arkham City is the best licensed game of all time is like saying Oreos are the best chocolate-and-cream sandwich cookies; sure, it's praise, but it's meaningless praise given the competition. A more impressive feat is that outside...

Engaging story with fantastic voice acting; big world with tons of quests and puzzles; smooth-flowing combat and traversal; a Batcave's worth of fun gadgets

Serious DX11 performance issues; can't change settings in-game; three layers of DRM is overkill; no PhysX on AMD GPUs

And yes, even without PhysX, Batman: Arkham City is simply a phenomenal-looking game. The power of the PC is in full effect here; crisp hi-res textures and expansive draw distance ensure immersion even when viewing the entire city while gliding on...

Batman: Arkham City - Best superhero game ever!

 

I admit, I'm not a huge Batman fan but I do appreciate a good licensed game when I see one because it's such a rarity in the gaming industry. 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum showed us that games based on comic book superheroes can be uber awesome as long...

If you’re still reading this review and haven’t made a beeline for your store to pick up a copy yet, it's a given that this is a must buy action game. Apart from a few minor issues, Arkham City delivers the perfect Batman experience in spades. It looks...

Batman: Arkham City, developed by Rocksteady Studios, is the tense sequel to the 2009 release Batman: Arkham Asylum. Set inside a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, which functions as a new maximum security prison for all of Gotham's...

When the original Batman: Arkham Asylum was released a scant two years ago, it was not only the best Batman game I had ever played, it was likewise not just the best game I had ever [...]

Batman teaming up with villains to do things he could do solo is kind of silly ; Making specific Riddler trophies only for Catwoman ruins the flow of the game

This is another solid Batman game, and while some things might not make perfect sense, it’s a home run in every other area that matters from graphics to sound to straight up game play mechanics – if you’re a Batman fan, you need to play this game.

Review: Batman Arkham City

 

Make no mistake about it, we are in the midst of the holiday rush. Review copies of games continue to pile up in the office screaming out to be played. Yet I find myself playing one title over and over again. I know, I should be playing other titles...

Stellar graphics ; Smooth controls ; High replay value ; Top-notch voice acting

Where’s the online co-op ; Wish you could explore more of the city

Batman Arkham City is easily one of the most polished titles I’ve seen so far this year. The graphics are beautiful, the voice acting top-notch and the gameplay is slick. The overall experience is stellar. If you liked the Batman Arkham Asylum, you’ll...

Is the Batman Arkham City hype justified? All gaming elements aside, it's simply one of the best Batman interpretations we've seen to date. That's including film, TV, even comics. Quite simply a masterpiece

Best Batman interpretation ; Stunning plot and characters ; Sublime openworld gameplay

Some boss battles

Rocksteady elevated the status of the superhero game with Asylum to a place that commands respect from notoriously hard to please comic book fans. With Arkham City, the studio clearly overcame any added pressure quickly and waded into the sequel with...

Batman: Arkham City

 

I once thought I'd never live to see the release of a truly great modern Batman game. A bit pessimistic perhaps, but I just didn't think anybody could...

Good gameplay ; Great level design ; Catwoman brings more variety

Navigation is too hard ; and the bosses are too easy

It’s like Arkham Asylum on steroids. Fans of the previous game will lap this up, and fans of Batman in general won't be disappointed.

Recommended!

Does the Wii U version Batman: Arkham City make it worth revisiting?

Superb mix of stealth and action gameplay ; Brilliant design and gritty Batman graphics ; Close encounters with Batman's greatest villains

Lacks some of the original's rich atmosphere

Whether it improves or not on its illustrious predecessor, there’s no questioning the quality of Arkham City. It’s intelligent, gritty and beautifully designed, and it gets who the Batman is and what makes him work. Whether you’re a fan of the comic...

Arkham City is not just the best Batman game to date. It's one of the best games to date and shows glimpses of more to come

Batman’s back and as ever there’s a whole lot of trouble going down in Gotham City. The premise of Arkham City is simple: the authorities have decided that the best way to deal with Gotham’s oversupp

Batman has some pretty big rubber boots to fill after the acclaimed Arkham Asylum – does Akrham City deliver?

Combat system has been upgraded with revamped weapon combat; vast open world; Catwoman is an added playable character with her own perspective on the story

Story isn’t as tight as the last game
