Batman: Arkham City

2 September 2013
  • Summary: Batman: Arkham Asylum was something of a revelation when it released in 2009. Until that time, games based on comic books had a history of being mediocre at best, but Rocksteady took a beloved superhero and let that love influence the development from beginning to end. Arkham Asylum was a critical triumph and a commercial success, standing as proof that a licensed game can strive for excellence and achieve it, provided somebody cares enough.

  • Excerpt: The Wii U has a surprisingly strong launch lineup. Yes, most of the games consist of ports with the exception of the lone Mario game or ZombieU, but at least most of them are newly released games, including Assassin's Creed III and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. They're games that will reach a broader audience than Nintendo is accustomed to lately.

30 Reviews in 30 Days, Day 11 – Batman: Arkham City

Everyday Gamers
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Batman: Arkham City is by no means perfect. Parts of the game tend to bog down a bit, some of the missions feel a little canned and the Catwoman segments felt just tacked on to give them something to unlock via an online code. It is hands down the best super hero game ever made, however,  and the end will leave you absolutely speechless.

Batman: Arkham City review

25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Arkham Asylum had only one major flaw – the game was so painstakingly, overwhelmingly, wonderfully thorough in its depiction of the Batman universe, we couldn’t imagine what was left to cover or accomplish in a sequel. The developers at Rocksteady got every element of the character right, from his combat to his gadgets to his previously neglected detective skills.
  • Pros: One of the best Batman stories ever told, Gotham setting that’s stunning in both size and detail, Enough content to keep you busy for 25, even 50 hours
  • Cons: Catwoman could be handled better, Two-Face is a little one-note, Worrying that this can never be topped

Batman: Arkham City - Harley Quinn's Revenge

1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Batman: Arkham City - Harley Quinn's Revenge In Harley Quinn’s Revenge, the first story-based DLC for Batman: Arkham City, the Caped Crusader is finally called to reckon with the game’s shocking conclusion. If you don’t already know what we’re talking about, we’re not going to tell you, but suffice to say that the siren in motley has a pretty substantial bone to pick with “Bats.

Batman: Arkham City Review

19 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Batman: Arkham Asylum's success hinged on the fact it would have been an outstanding game even without the undeniable force of its iconic source material. Instead of wheeling out the Dark Knight to distract from ropey construction and weary mechanics, as is so often the case, developer Rocksteady used the character to enhance and intensify the core experience.
