Batman: Arkham City (PC)

EL33TONLINE
12 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Batman has to be the best type of hero. He doesn’t have special powers (unless wealth counts as a super power). It means just about any one of us can dream to be a superhero with having to be bitten by a spider or be from another planet.

  • Pros: You are Batman, Plenty to do, Looks great
  • Cons: Games for Windows Live, Not hugely innovative

  • Summary: No guano to be found here, you'd be batty to miss this one
  • Pros: If you've ever wanted to be Batman, this is as close as you'll ever get; the best combat engine in an action game ever; fantastic stealth; loads of gadgets to play and fool around with; navigating the environments is incredibly satisfying; lots of great references for fans of the comics, movies, ...
  • Cons: The environment of Arkham City is not as huge as you'd expect; some single-player locked behind code that must be purchased new; once you've been Batman, real life seems that much more bland.
