Rated 10 out of 10 by Ymmot VIDEO GAME HISTORY!
First of all, the loading screen graphics, and start menu backround graphics are a LITTLE dodgy, which at first led me to beleive I was glad to keep my receipt, but little did I know, that I was about to experience of the only perfect games ever created by man. The gameplay was phenomenal and the in-game graphics were outstanding to say the least. The audio quality was great, but not perfect *Which is OBVIOUSLY far too much to ask from a game* and the lasting appeal will leave you coming back to beat your last score on Riddler's Revenge, to continue the creed of batman in the Harley Quinn DLC pack, spicing up the experience with the skins pack, or to save Gotham again with New Game Plus, and not to mention the all new playable characters, Robin, and Nightwing. The game itself is gold in an xbox case. Everyone involved in this game should be ARRESTED because its a crime to steal the gamers of the world's hearts. I rarely write reviews, but this game deserves thousands of reviews. Thank you for reading this long review, and BUY THIS GAME!!!
Rated 5 out of 10 by coolfox Okay game but over rated and jumps from genre
Batman should have stayed Action fighting style game with a little more of an open free map. Instead certain parts have become similiar to RPG or puzzle, which I am not interested in when picking up a Batman or super hero game. I want a linear game where I beat up the enemies and possible level up some special weapons. Batman took it beyond that it and made it into a game that sometimes confuses the user into where they need to go or what quest they should be on. The map that you can bring up looks very poor and provides limited assistance in quests and mission information. I would definitely rank the game higher if it was simplified. I have skyrim, fall out and other games to keep the RPG aspect going I don't need to be solving puzzles for Riddler and running around a huge map figuring out where I am supposed to go because they didn't take the time to clearly map it out or jumping building to building to answer phones on the ground in a limited amount of time. I don't enjoy wasting time and not making progress so sorry Batman but you have disappointed some of us.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ZReviewer Just as amazing as the first!
Batman:Arkham City. If you are looking for a super hero game look no further. This game is flat out amazing! The story gets a 10/10, the music is great, the voice acting by Mark Hamill, and Kevin Konroy are the best roles they both have ever done. The game play is top notch it seems as if it where choreographed as if it where a movie, there are so many upgrades, and gadgets you have at your disposal.
The story takes place in Arkham City where Bruce Wayne( Batman) is captured and taken into Arkham batman voluntarily stays in Arkham City to investigate something called protocol 10. I won't spoil anything else but not only is this game of the year its one of the greatest games of all time. You have the whole city to explore, and 400 Riddler challenges! And many many side missions to keep you occupied even after the game ends.
If you buy this version of the game you get many dlc packs, including Harley quins revenge but I wont get into all of that. I hope you found this review helpful, and you can see my other reviews by simply putting the cursor over my nickname.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SOCS18 Best Game I've Ever Played
I remember reading the reviews to this game and thinking that they were just over reacting, so when I went to GameStop to choose if I wanted MW3 or Arkham City, so chose this game, at first I thought I did a mistake. But I still kept it, so I played the game, and as I was playing it I got so sucked into the game, and thought "Dear God, they were right, awesome story, amazing gameplay, the combat felt right and better than Arkham Asylum (Arkham Asylum is still a good game), awesome graphics and sound. The game almost felt perfect, as if there was nothing wrong with it, so I played for as long as I could to try to find a mistake in the game, but it was tough. But the only mistake I found was that the dialogue was a little off, but it only happend when I finished the game so it won't bother you playing the story. So as far as I can say: 10/10 Video game. So buy it, you will be satisfied with this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by billybobmybutt THE ABSOLUTE BEST GAME IVE EVER PLAYED EVER!!!!!!
I truly mean it. this game is the greatest game I have ever played in my LIFE (so far. ive only gotten through 12 years) this game has pretty much everything you'd ever want in a game : Blood, Bloodshed. Violence, Awesome Combat, Cool Gadgets, Death, Freedom, Open World, Screwing Around, Weapons, Stealth, Dark Storyline, Humor, and not to mention Hot Chicks. this game has is all! if you like anyone of those things then you're going to freaking love this game! you don't even have to be a batman fan to love this game! my one recommendation is that you HAVE to play Arkham Asylum FIRST! because it makes this game all the much better! you just have to have to HAVE TO play the arkham series! except don't play origins! avoid Origins at all costs! just take my word for it, BEST GAME EVER 10/10 GAME OF THE YEAR!! THIS GAME DIDNT GET THE GAME OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR NOTHING!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by annoyed3784 Great Game. MUST BUY
ill start off by saying that this game is amazing and everyone should get a chance to play it. Its an open world game although the prison(the world you are playing in, but its not like arkham asylum and is in a prison the size of a city) is not the biggest there are still plenty of things to find and do. I picked up the GOTY edition and exchanged it for the normal edetion because it was the same price during a sale. If you just focus on the single story you wont even meet some characters that are in the game. This game can offer up to 12 hours on a playthrough with just the batman character. The GOTY edition offers 3 other players (Catwomen, Robin and Nightwing) and all characters have 1 or more differnt skins to choose from. Overall, this game is worth every cent and if your looking for a great game, get this.
Rated 10 out of 10 by jroberts Must Play, Must Read
Best game I have ever played. Hadn't played this game for 6 months then got Harley Quinns revenge and started playing it again. The music is the best I have ever heard out of a video game. The environment and map is huge and epic. The graphics are grade A besides a few minor bugs that a rarely ever see and maybe 1 out 0f 200 "killcams" or " finishing moves" go glitchy because we all know that Batman doesn't kill people. Also the amount of Batman lore will make any comics fan drool. The riddler side mission takes time but is truly rewarding and the end will make you love this game forever!!! Then there is new-game plus that adds replayabillity. PProbably not as much replayabillity as Asylum but besides that advances on all cylinders from Asylum. From me to you, PLEASE GET THIS GAME!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Casey3040 An Amazing Sequel to Asylum!
When I played Arkham Asylum, and news came out that they were making a sequel, I said to myself, "You can' t make a better game than Arkham Asylum GOTY! Well they just did! I played the GOTY version of Arkham City and it was so much fun! It really brings you into the game, so you are not playing as Batman, you ARE Batman. Catwoman was a great addition as well! The Story line was stunning, while the graphics were out of this world! The soundtrack is spooky, just like Batman! You will meet new foes and use new gadgets! A MUST for any gamer, and a heaven on earth for any Batman fan! However I must note, that I played the GOTY edition. I doubt that the original edition will be any close to what the GOTY edition is, so if you are to get this game, get the game of the year edition!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ShadowXSniper Excellent Batman Game
Just like its predecessor Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City won Game of the Year and rightfully so. The series is personally my favorite and this game is a reason. The in-depth storyline is amazing with so many different challenges as well as incredible voice acting that goes right with the characters perfectly. The music is perfect for each situation and really proves that it's the little things that make a big difference. The controls are flawless and easy to learn but at the same time give amazing control over the Dark Knight. You really get to know Batman and it makes the game that much better. The DLC's are amazing and add even more depth and entertainment to a game that is already a 10 out of 10. I have beaten it several times and still enjoy it.
