Gotham City. This crime-infested metropolis has been famously imagined and reimagined in comic books, cartoons, and films. Now, we have a new vision of Gotham, and it stands not just as one of the most unforgettable incarnations ever of the city that...

Batman: Arkham Asylum is justifiably the most revered comic hero game ever made. It may have seemed far fetched to think that Rocksteady studios could outdo their first outing with the Bat, but they managed to do it in every single way. Batman: Arkham...

Added to the mix is Catwoman, which players will control for about 10% of the game in four separate missions interwoven within the narrative. It can't be stressed enough how engrossing the story is, written once again by the award winning Paul Dini....

of Batman adversaries contained in Arkham City's walls. It would be a common complaint for people to make that Rocksteady tried to shoe-horn too many of them into one game. However, because of the over-all narrative of the storyline, this actually...

With The Animated Series’ fan-favorites Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill once again taking the reins as the voices of Batman/Bruce Wayne and the Joker respectively, you have the beginnings of a formula for instant success. Add to those two the list of...

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

Unfortunately, these diversions usually wind up being far more satisfying and exciting than the main story’s thrust, which quickly devolves into a two-pronged routine: Chase person X to location Y, or face a sudden detour to location Z when location X...

Batman: Arkham City Review Xbox 360. Let me say that even though I had serious problems with Batman: Arkham Asylum, it was still one of my favorite games of the year. So naturally, Rocksteady's sequel seemed to push all my buttons. A bigger san...

Arkham City is damn fantastic. My complaints are big issues that, if you're sensitive to the subject of misogyny and sexism, could really break it for you. But let it be clear that if they weren't at the forefront of the experience, Arkham City would...

I'm Batman. As I stalk Arkham City's rooftops tapping into radio frequencies, tuned into the pulse of the criminal network, I can run, leap and glide off the edge of a building, zip-line from ledge to ledge, never losing momentum. I can beat seven...

Batman: Arkham City is an outstanding sequel in every department, with stunning gameplay, an immersive world to explore and fantastically well-realised characterisation. The music and voice-acting is exemplary and the visuals are gorgeous. Batman:...

It's difficult to believe that Rocksteady could improve on one of the best superhero games ever made, Batman: Arkham Asylum. Well, they definitely

Batman: Arkham City is the best superhero game available, it is a perfect example of how a license should be used in a game. It’s not quite as open world as I would have liked, but it is polished to near perfection.

Review: Batman: Arkham City (360/PS3)

 

A stellar superhero game that raises the bar for its peers, Rocksteady's Arkham City is indeed the game that Gotham City deserves, and a must-own for Bat-fans.

Fantastic story; gorgeous graphics; huge open world, and an insane amount of content (New Game+ will keep you plenty busy)

Boss battles are a bit button-mash heavy; Catwoman "Online Pass" is bound to be a hassle for used game buyers
