Amazing game all around...lots of fun and a good story. Controls are fairly easy to get down and there are plenty of side missions to make this one last and a game to own. Also, there are a lot of arsenal upgrades to this follow up to Arkham Asylum that keep the Dark Knight a bad man to mess with...go get a copy of this!

There are plenty of licensed games that come out, some are good, some are great, some are bad...Arkham City is completely in a league of its own. It legitimately evokes emotion that is only seen in movies while creating a sense of chaos and urgency. I wont give any spoilers away but if you thought 'The Dark Knight' was the best batman had to offer its fans, Arkham City won't disappoint.
Pros: Fluid combat
Tons of sidequests and Riddler Challenges
Incredible voice acting and syncing, You can't do better than Mark Hamil in his final Joker role, and Kevin Conroy as Batman.
Replay Value: There aren't many action games that have a lot of replay value in today's gaming world but it will be near impossible to not want to play it again at least two more times
DLC: there was day one dlc in the form of Catwoman, there is going to be DLC for Nightwing, and I'm sure there is more, and it doesn't feel like an add-on because it adds to the story in the sense of a different narrative.
Music: The music, whether it be the orchestral arrangement or the various bands that contributed to the commercial soundtrack is AMAZING and further adds to the environment.
Cons: honestly? I really can't think of one negative thing to say about this game
Arkham Asylum set the bar when it comes to superhero games, Arkham City kicks the bar in its stomach and steals its lunch money.
