    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.

      Great game

      First thing's first, if you haven't played Batman: Arkham Asylum then I recommend doing so. It hints back to what happened there often. If you haven't played it then you'll be sitting there looking pretty confused when you see Joker, Sharpe, and probably other things/people that I can't think of off the top of my head. Now look man, this game is a game of the year edition for a reason, all those 10 of 10's and 5 out've 5's you're seeing on the cover aren't make believe, this game is the real deal. Whether you're the world's largest batman fan or you've never even heard of him(which is unlikely) is irrelevant, this game is one of if not the best RPG games I've ever played. The gadget's you can use are awesome(there is quite a bit of them), the fighting is just flat out ridiculous, it put's in just the right amount of stealth to where you still get the thrill of stealth take downs but without over doing it to the point that it gets boring, tons of side-missions(optional), unfortunately no killer croc or scarecrow(atleast not that I know of), but there are still a good number of villains. The ending to the riddler's challenge in Arkham Asylum was just nonsense to me, they gave him a larger and better role in Arkham City. The thing that separates the regular B:A.C. from the game of the year edition to me was the fact that it brought in Robin and Nightwing. Unfortunately they aren't playable in the campaign mode, but you can use them in Riddler's Revenge(the challenge mode). I think Catwoman comes with the regular B:A.C. but you might want to double check that. Another thing as far as the challenge mode goes is you can use countless other costumes for Batman, Catwoman, Robin, and Nightwing( You can't use the other batman costumes in story mode until the main story is complete). The ending left me with a confused look on my face, but Harley Quinn's revenge made up for it. On challenging gameplay, I rated it a 4, but if I could I would give it a 4.5. Don't misunderstand me, it is a challenging game, it WILL make you think. The hand-2-hand could be a little bit more challenging in the campaign mode, but it get's pretty tough in Riddler's Challenge's. So if you just want to test yourself against a mosh pit of opponents then you can, just not so much in the story mode.

      I got this game after playing through "Batman, Arkham Asylum". This game has a great storyline - it's almost like watching a movie and you are inside controlling Batman. The game is full of all of the familiar DC Comics characters and challenging bosses. This is one of the few games that I only had to take a cursory glance at the controller function buttons, and go to town without having to go online to "cheat" my way through certain puzzles or scenes. It is intuitive and can offer hints #an option in the setup# if you are killed. The game is able to render 3D, but I can't comment on it as I don't have the special glasses needed. BTW, if you WANT to get the 3D glasses, don't expect the cheap ones used in movies to work. There are plenty of thugs to battle and tons of upgrades. Batman has a ton of gadgets to help him throughout the game. I'm 57 years old and addicted to this series - WB and Rocksteady have done a great job at bringing a decades old character to life in a game that will give you hours of amazing play. As a retired teacher, I would say that I would NOT recommend it for young children as there is some mature material throughout the game, but for teens on up, I think it's OK. I like the fact that when Batman has fights with the criminals, he never kills them - only knocks them out. Therefore, I rated it as "family friendly" with this caveat.

      Best Comic Hero game ever, the total package!

      I know the original game came out 6 months previous and got great reviews, but I recently decided it was time to pick it up and this version was coming out with all the DLC in one total package. This is an absolutely fantastic game, the best "licensed" game made to date, and generally a thrilling game that is like playing through a long timeline of gritty Batman comics. I am typically a Marvel guy, but to-date noone has put out a comic hero based game this well written and acted. The game features a huge map, spot on gameplay, and a huge variety of challenges. Do yourself a favor - Buy this Game!

      Best comic book game of all time

      This could possibly be the best game based on a comic book character. I though Arkham Asylum was great, but developer Rocksteady managed to top it. With a larger world, improved combat mechanics and rhythm, more gadgets, more villains, more of everything. You even play as Catwoman and Harley Quinn with the included DLC. The only downer was finding out Robin and Nightwing DLCs are only for the challenge maps, which (after playing through with Batman AND Catwoman) can be somewhat repetitive and redundant.

      Dont even want to start saying all the positive because we would be here for a while, Amazing start... Consistent action packed middle, Shocking end. Mix of villains was perfect and loved the new gameplay. Catwomen side story was perfect for the game to not get boring. i dont normally say a game is perfect but this game is so darn close. 4.9 of 5 because im stubborn.... go buy this game especially at this price.

      Fun, Great story, frustrating controls

      It's Batman with Assassin's Creed controls. One button does most of your work and when you get in a fight it's pretty much like mortal combat when you were a kid at the skating rink. You move the stick punch all the buttons. Other than that: the story line is great, there are tones of puzzles throughout them game to solve and the boss battles can be challenging. All in all I don't regret the purchase and spending time playing the game.

      I played this game when it originally came out, but when my boyfriend said he had never played it before, I couldn't help but go right out and buy it for him. I love that Best Buy sells used games, they are always in perfect working condition and I get a great game without the brand new price. The Batman Arkham series is by far one of the best game series out there right now. I would highly recommend this game to anyone!

      The original Arkham Asylum was an excellent game, and this one tops everything that game did. The story, gameplay and graphics are excellent. This is the Game of the Year version which includes all of the DLC (Catwoman Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Arkham City Skins Pack, and Challenge Map Pack. Also includes Harley Quinn's Revenge new bonus content which features more than two hours of additional content.
