Batman: Arkham City
If you love or like Batman, BUY THIS NOW !
After playing Arkham Asylum and completely lossing my mind in the epic story and gameplay (not to mention the never ending fun of challenge mode), i came to discover that within a year or so Rocksteady was coming out with a sequel.... Batman: Arkham City.... Reading through endless blogs and rumours for the upcoming game, i could only hope for the best. Let me tell you first hand after picking it up yesterday..... I LOVE THIS GAME ! If you loved Arkham Asylum, you will not sleep for Arkham City. This should be game of the year, and i wouldnt be surprised if it was. It is a must for anyone with Batman fever and open world/superhero lust. Get this game if you havent already.... You will not be disapointed :D
An Instant Classic! like the first one!
I was skeptical of BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM at first. After all, Batman doesn't kill anyone. I thought, how can a game where you don't kill anyone be any fun? But trust me, Arkham Asylum was one of the greatest, most fun games I've ever played. The freeflow combat system was simple to learn yet difficult to master. The "predator" screens were the greatest stealth/stalker challenges I've ever played. After I beat the game, I immediately started replaying it on a tougher difficulty.
As a consequence, my expectations for ARKHAM CITY are high. I literally expect it to be one of the best video games I've ever played. If the previews are anything to go by, I won;t be disappointed.
BEST Batman Experince EVER
This game is GREAT I loved the first one and I love the second one JUST as much. Arkham city is DEF. The ultimate Batman experience. Not ONLY is it one of the best batmans ever it's EASILY one of the best games of 2012(Seeing as it was released late 2011)
The game totally made me feel like I was..in the comics/Tim Burton world. All the characters that where in the game(some had major roes,such as Mr Freeze,Joker Etc.,While others had minor supporting roles or little cameos,IE Mad Hatter and Black Mask) felt right and where..put in the style of Tim Burton. In short if you ever saw the first two batman movies you pretty much under stand the way the world feels.
Story wise the game is solid. It continues from where Batman Arkham Asylum pretty much ended by telling you that the Asylum was shut down and the new "Arkham City" was created as a pretty much free roam prison. Where the inmates are aloud to do what ever they want as long as they don't try to escape. Batman,Bruce Wayne, as usual thinks this is wrong and try's to get the city shut down and stop Hugo Strange from completing something called "Protocol 10",We don't know what it really is and don't find out till later in the game, While at the same time stop the Joker.
Game play wise this game is GREAT. It took all the things that where great in Arkham Asylum IE the fighting mechanics,Gliding etc. and expanded them, EX now when batman is gliding he can use his grappling hook to give him self a boost and be able to fly off a ledge or whatever and go further and glide for longer. They also amped up the fighting style,as if it wasn't big enough from the first one, so that NOW not only can you do things like stun guys with your cape but you can use an electric shock gun, Stun an enemies with your cape then beat him down etc. the results are endless and since the game has a very free flow style of fighting no one battle will ever really feel the same.
ALSO for the people that thought Arkham Asylum was big..this is BIGGER. Arkham City is like the SAN ANDREAS of Batmans but in a..Vice city idea. In other words. imagine all the things you could do in San Andreas but in a place like Vice City. Arkham City has so much you can do that it's INSANE. I loved all the side missions, From seeing not so well known batman villains(IE Mad Hatter) to helping well known ones(IE Bane), Because not only where they fun but they where made so that you didn't have to do them in one order AND you could take(For most of them) as long as you wanted to finish them. It was great being able to say work on some stuff in the main story then jump to a side quest and then back into the main story on the fly it made it almost impossible to really get bored with the game.
There's also TONS of unlockable little artwork and trophies in this game that it makes you also go back and do things to try and beat the game or do the side missions. And for people that only wanna play the main story there's also a thing called New Game Plus. For people that have played Halo on Legendary or Killzone3 on Elite they will be familiar to this. All the enemies are stronger,Do more Damage ETC. and it gives the game an extra challenge for the people that are interested. ALSO if you don't wanna do either of those things there's also TONS of different challenge maps and etc. also included in this game. So in Short there's no shortage of things to do in this game.
For Batman Fans this should be a given,the stellar story and acting of Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy are sure to make batman fans pleased along with other actors from the TV show, and for RPG gamers this game will surely make you pleased cause of all the things to do. In short this is a great game and should keep the people that buy it pleased for ALONG Time.
this game is going to be cool
i really think this game is going to be a hit i am looking forward to it
DOESN'T GET MORE BATMAN THAN THIS
At first I was wondering if there is anyway they could make a game better than Arkham Asylum, and they proved they could with flying colours. The fighting system is so smooth and fluent, and the graphics are amazing. It is a very dark game so you might have to turn up your brightness a bit more than usual but it's batman, its meant to be dark. The storyline is gripping right from the start, and all the way to the end. The boss battles are epic and gratifying upon completion. After you finish the game the first time around, there is a harder mode that just makes the game that much better. If you like to immerse yourself in the world and explore, there are over 400 hidden things to find. It doesn't matter if you are huge Batman fan, or just a casual gamer, this game is a must buy!
3 words A-MA-ZING. This game is one of the best games i have ever played. The graphics are outstating, the gameplay is pure genius, and the sound is awesome. I think this game desirves game of the year.
The best game of the year!!!
Ater playing Batman Arkham Asylum I was really excited to hear of this sequel. Arkham City is one of the greatest games I've ever played, I especially like the side stories with all my favorite villains. The story of course is awesome and the ending will leave you stunned. I enjoy the kind of survival mode that they have put in and not tommention the extensive amounts of riddler trophies. This game has everything anyone could want and I recommend buying it ASAP!!!
If you don't like Batman, I still recommend it.
This game, how can I describe it: adventurous, exciting and worth the money. I know that people today are into First Person Shooters games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but do you know what MW3 stands for, " Money Wasted 3". In Batman Arkham City, you can glide, fight and roam around the city, kicking bad guys butts and defeating classic villains like Joker or Penguin. All I can say is, forget MW3, and get this game instead. And also the only FPS game I recommend is Battlefield 3.
should have been game of the year
the day i got this game i couldn't turn it off. his is definitly a better game than skyrim and should have won game of the year.
Looks like a great game, with amazing graphics! Might have to check it out.
