Summary: This game is awesome compared to Arkham Asylum. I am currently playing on hard difficult and it is hard but not too punishing. It does take skill to time your combos and you get to face many different enemies that require different upgrades/strategies. It starts off a little slow since your Batman won't be as strong till you level him up. You also get to play with different other characters and unlock a bunch of additional content from Riddler trophies.
Summary: Two items to discuss - 1) As has been said time and time again, this game really does set the standard as to not only what a superhero game should be, but what a third-person-type brawler game should be. It's genre defining. The content is gritty and really quite mature...it's NOT a kid's game, but a fully fleshed story that does justice to the subject matter and never, ever patronizes or condescends to the audience.
Buyer Beware re: "Games for Windows Live" video games

Summary: Ok price for the basic disk-based PC version of this video. (After I received the purchase, I actually found a better price through a STEAM download.) The real problem was post-installation compatibility issues given the "Games for Windows LIVE" requirements. I tried to use the disk through my own GFWL account but couldn't get it to work because GFWL was been discontinued by MicroSoft within the past year. Who knew?
Summary: Was really as simple a the title suggests, all round good experience! Found the game on Amazon.com to be cheapest, it gave me code for steam instantly and started downloading right away, no hicups!
Summary: I really enjoyed Batman Arkham Asylum, so I was eager to continue the story with Arkham City and man was I blown away! With Arkham Asylum, you are restricted to the interiors of buildings other than when you are moving between say the mansion and the gardens. In Arkham City, you get to move Batman over an entire section of old Gotham City.
