Expert Review

  • 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.

Batman: Arkham City review

GamesRadar
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 Review (PS3)

Softpedia
13 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Batman is back for a brand new gaming adventure, this time with Arkham City, the sequel to 2009's Asylum, which broke the mold for superhero and comic book-based games by delivering a properly stunning experience made by Rocksteady Studios. While the original impressed largely because nobody had high expectations, Arkham City now has a lot to live up to, especially since Asylum won lots of awards and earned a cult following.
  • Pros: + Great story worthy of the Batman name, + Open world filled with activities, + Top notch voice acting
  • Cons: - Graphics and combat glitches are present, - Some villains aren't that fleshed out

Batman: Arkham City

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so I've heard. Gotham is generally known to be a dirty, gritty place - a city destined for greatness that, somehow, began decaying before ever reaching that intended grandeur. Arkham City, for the uninitiated, is a new mega-prison facility created by walling in a large section of Gotham's crime-infested downtown slums. Pretty?

Batman: Arkham City -- Game of the Year Edition Review (PS3)

About.com
13 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Batman: Arkham City Image © WBIE So does "Batman: Arkham City" deserve the title of 2012 "Game of the Year"? That's still up for debate given the fact that "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception," " Dead Space 2 ," "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim," and "Portal 2" were at least as good and arguably better. However, it's certainly in the conversation. And perhaps more than any one of these highly-acclaimed titles, it's a game that's real easy to revisit.

  • Conclusion: For Rocksteady second foray into the Batman universe there not stumbling, as most sequels tend to do. There keeping the stride and pace that they began in the first game and now improving upon all the aspects that they can. While this game isn’t perfect because it included way too many villains and not enough story to go along with them being in the game; it is a great follow-up to Arkham Asylum.

Batman: Arkham City (PS3) Review

  • Summary: Despite a few mishaps, Batman is as close to perfect a game I have played in years. Even when other big hitters like Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 came out I have been unable to put the Dark Knight’s game down. If you are even remotely interested in the fiction, give this game a try and prepare to have your mind blown!
