as soon as i picked this game up i couldnt put it down
if you have played the 1st batman game arkham asylum you already know that this game will be great
they have improved so much in this game the fighting is so much better new double counter, gadgets are used more in combat, they really have improved and my personal favorite the gliding before in arkham asylum you could only glide for a few seconds but now you can dive right down into the middle of the streets really cool my only consern is the game had to end if your a person who loves batman or just likes the first game then i recomend you go and pick this game up you wont regret it
Deep, fun and leaving you wanting more. Arkham City is a blast. Getting through the story mode is merely scratching the surface. I have found that most open world style games have side missions as a bit of filler. That is not the case here. The Side missions also tell a story and develop a lot of the characters. You really feel like your playing through a great Batman movie and get lost in the experience of it all. Its got tons to do and is worth a full purchase, forget rental. If you have 3-D capability, their is a particular battle towards the end of the story that will really show off the capability as well.
My only complaint is that so much of it leaves you wanting more. Many of the characters are not as developed as you'd like them to be. But, this isn't a bad thing, and who knows maybe we'll get some DLC that addresses that.
