Description: Arkham City is an open world action video game that incorporates elements of stealth and predator tactics. All of the gadgets previously obtained in the first game are present at the start of Arkham City (with the exception of the Ultra Batclaw, which is replaced with the regular Batclaw and Sonic Batarangs). Most of them have improved or new capabilities; for example, the Cryptographic Sequencer can also track signals, the line launcher now has a feature that allows Batman to flip over and launch another zipline perpendicularly across, switching directions, the remote control Batarang now has a built in brake and boost, and the grappling gun can now be used while gliding to boost Batman further up into the air. Four additional gadgets have been revealed: smoke pellets to confuse armed enemies when spotted by them, the Remote Electrical Charge which is a sniper-like taser gun used to power generators and shock enemies, ice grenades used to freeze enemies and make pathways through water, and a balled rope for tying up enemies. The game incorporates more puzzle elements; the use of Batman's "Detective Mode", which highlights elements such as enemy skeletons and clues on-screen, is used to perform forensic activities such as tracing the origin of a sniper round.

bestbuy logo One of the Best Superhero Games
This is my first batman game and IT IS one of the best superhero games out for playstation. The story is awesome, graphics are intense and the longevity of the game is great! I highly recommend this game to anyone looking to get a good bang for their buck.

bestbuy logo Best Game...ever
So, full disclosure - I'm a long time Batman fan, mostly from the comic books; so, I'm Batman-biased. While, I often have trouble with the liberties movie makers have taken with the franchise, I love what they have done with the video games. With Arkham City, they have hit the ball out of the park again. They have stayed true to what I remember about the comics with regards to the characters and have developed an Intriguing storyline. I love the modern, gritty look that they give the characters. Voice work is fantastic. The graphics are amazing - I love just spending time jumping and gliding around the city to check out the views. The ability to pick and choose what challenges (or parts of the main storyline) you want to work on and when is awesome. Love the extra add-on content already. The game lends itself to endless replay. I can't wait to start over on New Game+ mode. Only one problem I have had with the game is occasionally when the camera view changes suddenly when performing a complicated move. The move fails and I have to try again (or get hammered in combat). With Arkham Asylum, I was able to complete the main story and leave all the Riddler trophies to find with my young son, free of having to battle villians. With Arkham City, prisoners are still abound even after the main story, so the violence and language prevents me from sharing that experience with him this time around.

bestbuy logo Great game, but I only played it for a day
Dont let me review fool you. It certainly is a great game, but i'm more into call of duty and when MW3 came out this hit the backburner.

bestbuy logo Not as good as the first
I think this is a very good game. But my expectations were so high based on the first game. In my opinion, this game falls short. The story is not nearly as engaging and I actually prefer the more confined environment of Arkham Assylum to the expansive Arkham City. If this were the first game - I would have given it 5 stars (as most reviewers have done) but I just felt a little disappointed.

bestbuy logo Arkham City Rules!!
I love this game and play all the time. It's a great challenge (I'm not a professional gamer, so...) and I like the puzzles and investigations in the game. Batman Kicks and Catwoman is awesome!
