Synopsis


When night falls on Gotham and the seedy undergrowth of the city emerges, Batman is there waiting. Ever vigilant, the Dark Knight monitors the city he protects from high above the gritty streets. No one knows his deepest secret — except Dr. Hugo Strange. With Gotham's criminally insane, vile villains and insidious characters confined within the walls of Arkham City, Batman must fight to ensure his true identity remains hidden from the citizens he vows to protect.

Soar inside the heavily fortified walls of Gotham's new maximum security home as the Dark Knight in Batman: Arkham City. This epic world is five times larger than the Asylum, and is home to the city's most devious and dangerous criminals. Glide, soar and grapple through the City as you engage in hand-to-hand combat against enemies or take advantage of Batman's trademark stealth maneuvers. Experience the intense, gritty atmosphere with a brand-new storyline that brings together a new all-star cast of classic characters and menacing murderers from the Batman universe. Now, get ready to expand the exciting, award-winning gameplay of Arkham City with this Game of the Year Edition that features Catwoman Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Arkham City Skins Pack, Challenge Map Pack and Batman: Year One movie download. Once you've solved every crime and mystery of Arkham City, return to the dark and seedy metropolis as Batman and Robin in Harley Quinn's Revenge that features more than two hours of content, including new storylines, enemies, environments and collectables. Seeking her revenge against the Dark Knight, Harley Quinn is leading a homicidal gang of her own and is ready for one last fight against the Caped Crusader.

    One of the best games I have ever played!

    I absolutely love this game and the new chapter "Harley's Revenge". This is a must-play game for any true Batman lover, especially with Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy voicing the Joker and Batman.

    Definitely GAME OF THE YEAR

    Arkham Asylum was a great game, one of the best when it came out. Arkham City takes the greatness of Arkham Asylum and amplifies it by 10. It has everything that a Batman fan could want in a game. You don't need me to review the game for you because I'm sure you can find out more thorough and professional reviews on any one of a dozen gaming sites. I will say though that the Game of the Year version of Arkham City is the one you should get. Yes, the box art is horrendous but look past that. Unlike Arkham Asylum when you had to download all the extras, Arkham City packs them onto the disc. So if you don't have a PSN account or your internet is really slow...no problem. You get tons of extras such as additional costumes for Batman, Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing. You also get additional challenge maps for all 4 characters + the Catwoman Campaign and Harley Quinn's Revenge which takes place AFTER Arkham City. And you get a code to download a Batman animated movie from PSN. My only gripe is that when I tried to download the movie, I kept getting an error from PSN. Not sure what the problem is, but I don't really care for the movie much. Its in HD so it's almost 5gb of space to fill on my PS3's hard drive anyway. Should you get this game? YES. ***But parents be warned: This is not your children's colorful cartoony Batman. This game is clearly intended for an older audience. Its darker, more violent, and full of adult topics and language that you probably don't want your 8 year old to hear. However, this should not be taken as a criticism of the game. I purchased it for myself. My son will not be playing this game.***

    A lot of fun with great voice acting and good story. Some of the gameplay mechanics can be a bit tricky/difficult, but that's more for completing all the side quests than part of the main game. Highly recommend!

    One of the best PS3 games gets a great update

    This excellent PS3 game gets a great update! All the downloadable content is included in the same package for a low price, including Harley Quinn's Revenge additional story line and the Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing bundle packs. This is definitively the version to get if you don't already have the Standard Edition. My only complaint is that this version of the game will not sync up with the Arkham City Standard Edition game saves, creating a whole different set of save files. This is annoying if you have already won the Standard Edition game and want to buy this version just for the Bonus Content. The good thing is that at least all the Bonus Content is unlocked to be accessed from the beginning. Recommended!

    Overall, I had great expecations going into this game. I thought Arkham Asylum was the greatest Batman video game ever and one of my favorite games for PS3. I expected this one to go above Arkham Asylum, but it didn't. Gameplay and graphics was very similar, and that tempered the wow-factor. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed playing it and it was worth the $20.00 price tag. I'm just glad I waited and didn't spend the 50 when it came out.

    My son wanted to play NBA2K all the time but after getting this game we can't put it down. The graphics are amazing and there is so much content I don't know that we'll ever actually finish the game. Tons of mini games and extras. LOVE IT!
