Rocksteady's "Batman: Arkham City" is probably my favorite games. Arkham City has an amazing story voice acting and gameplay mechanics along with good graphics. After I beat the previous installment "Batman: Arkham Asylum", I immediately went on to Arkham City. For once I was really amused with the game. Mark Hammil (Luke Skywalker) as the two game's main antagonist "The Joker" and Kevin Conroy as "Batman" was amazing. The game made me felt that I was in another Batman movie. The gameplay for the game was fun. With all the gliding and demoted spiderman combat was really fun making this somewhat of a free-realm game. Well, mostly after the ending WHICH IM NOT GOING TO SPOIL was pretty fun. The graphics have really upgraded from Arkham Asylum figuring that Asylum was made in 2009 and City was made in 2011, but you get the point good graphics. So with my approval, I award this "My favorite game".
I rented the game from Gamefly, but apparently that's not enough. If you aren't the "first purchaser" of the game, you don't get to play as Catwoman, who apparently is a big enough part of the game to be worth $10, which we can only assume translates into being 1/6 of the game if you bought it at $60.
That being said, I have to give this game a bad review. It's shoddy business and doesn't deserve my respect. Not to mention, the game never wants you to forget how to play it. It constantly throws "Press B!" indicators all over the place, so it's like the game is trying to hold your hand the whole time, which is terribly annoying.
The gameplay and story itself was fine, but unfortunately it seems this gem was a bit cloudy.
