Summary: I really tried to give this game a chance, but I just couldn't get into it. The storyline has good premise, but the acting leaves a disappointing aftertaste. As for gameplay, its easy to get through the game by "button mashing." Strategy is not really necessary. Graphics are appealing, if not a little cartoony. Overall, many people liked it so it must have redeeming qualities. Just wasn't my cup of tea.
Great game, cool extras, one big gripe for double dippers

Summary: I love this game. It's one of the best you can get on the ps3. I bought it right away when it was released and played the heck out of it. I didn't end up springing for any of the DLC because I don't have a reliable high speed internet connection where I'm currently living. So I was very excited when they released this game of the year edition with all of the previous DLC content on disc.
Summary: Batman: Arkham City is one of the best superhero games I ever played, everything from the opening to the credits is amazing. The voice cast is great with some of the the actors from the animated series returning such Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker. The gameplay is also amazing and addicting I would just free roam the city as Batman and beat up thugs, another great thing is the story which is better than most other comic book based video game stories,...

Summary: This is a review of Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition for the PS3 After completing Batman Arkham Asylum: Game of the Year Greatest Hits (At least all of the Campaign Story including the Riddler Challenges) I was all ready for Arkham City. However, the edition I wanted was the newly released GOTY (Released May of this Year) since this not only had literally almost ALL the DLC that came out before, during and after the initial release of the original edition...
Summary: I didn't know what to expect when I bought this game, but I soon found out. If you have never played this game you really must. It is brilliant. The graphics, gameplay, storyline, controls, and everything else worked perfectly. I loved this game because it made you feel like Batman. Some of you might say that the storyline was confusing because of all the characters, but i personally thought it was a very well put together storyline.
Summary: Did not play the original title, "Arkham Asylum", but was seduced by the hype for this sequel. It has surpassed all expectations for fun, and is challenging enough to keep interest. If you are looking for something to lose yourself in for a weekend, buy this game.
