If you liked Arkham Asylum, you will love Arkham City

Summary: I can't say a lot has changed since Arkham Asylum, the core game play will feel very familiar to vets of the last game but that's not a bad thing @ all. There have been some new additions to combat like double silent take downs, but overall it doesn't really have a new feel, just more of what made the first great.
Summary: I bought this game because I heard alot of good things about it. I could not find any "legitimate" bad reviews. All I can say is this is a great game from start to finish. Anyone I have let play it has become completly hooked. It doesnt hurt that it was just voted as game of the year. Well deserved and highly recommended!
Summary: I really enjoyed Batman: Arkham Asylum so I expected big things here. Thankfully, Arkham City keeps all the good elements of the first game, makes some improvements, and adds enough new elements that the experience still feels fresh. The one major downside to Arkham Asylum to me was the need to almost constantly use the X-ray vision mode to see where thugs were lurking around corners in order to plan stealth attacks in relatively small spaces.
Summary: I found this game to be good for killing a few hours in the evening. The fight mechanics are quite satisfying, and the game's ambiance is great. The plot, unfortunately, played like a bad Joel Schumacher directed Batman film; there were too many villains fighting for screen time, and the plot was difficult to follow and quite nonsensical. How many times must Batman stand at a moment of triumph only to have the villain blow up the floor underneath him..
Batman fan or not, this game is worth experiencing

Summary: If you've read my review for Batman: Arkham Asylum, then you know that I loved it, yet I only rented it due to my "code" which demands that I only buy games based off Marvel comics since I'm a much bigger fan of that series as opposed to DC. However, I couldn't stand not being able to play the game again, so I eventually gave in and bought it... and I loved it even more. Naturally, I had to get Batman: Arkham City as well. Was it worth it?
Summary: After thoroughly enjoying Arkham Asylum, I found myself wondering how the "sandbox-style" take of its sequel Arkham City would play out. Arkham Asylum had a fairly straightfoward storyline, and the environment changed to control how you stepped through the story: breaking down that linearity might not go so well. I'm happy to say that this game succeeds in every way.
Summary: Thank you Rocksteady for making two great games in a row! The Batman games are totally fantastic! I hope they come out with another one! In this game they have Two-Face, Killer Croc, Calender Man, Penguin, Mister Freeze, Harley Quin, Joker, Mad Hatter, Bane, Hugo Strange, Ras Al Guhl,Riddler, Zaz and Catwoman. This game features even better moves and gadgets then Asylum. Graphics are like real, this game is a little dark, but not as dark as Asylum.
