Summary: Thought it was gonna be what everyone told me: GTA but with Batman. It's KIND of like that, but the combat gets VERY repetitive. It's definitely worth a buy if you're a Batman fan, but if you're just a casual Batman fan then you'll be wondering what the big deal is after playing this game.
Summary: When it comes to video games, I have kind of a strange history with them. I grew up spending many hours in front of my Nintendo systems, but as time goes on I have found myself only playing sports and multi-player games with buddies.
Summary: I wanted to try out this game everyone was recommending. Like most things, it's not all it is cracked up to be. Combat system is off, taking about 10 minutes to beat up a few enemies. The story is lame and depressing. One of the only pluses is the abundant content/replay value.
Summary: Arkham City is a Fantastic game to say the least. It is extremely fun and entertaining. Being a big Batman fan I decided to pre-order the collectors edition only to be let down by it. The first dissapointment is the lack of a seperate case.
Summary: Forgoing the review of the game, this is strictly for the collectors edition, as if you're sold on the game, the actual content of the collectors edition will be what lures you in; My biggest complaint is that the packaging design is terrible.
Summary: There are moments in this game which are incredibly fun. The fighting mechanics are ingeniously simple while still having a lot of depth to them. Gliding from the rooftops of Gotham on your cape, then firing your grapple hook to zip up across another chasm is really quite thrilling.
Conclusion: I just finished Arkham city and I was truly happy with it all around. Story was awesome and the game play was pretty smooth :) I found the bat claw to be very useful for pulling people off the cliff and taking out the sniper towers. power gliding was pretty sweet and not too difficult.
Summary: A much better one from the past: "The chronicles of Riddick", if only for the shining of the surfaces and the "real dark" of the environments. Riddick's Starbreeze engine is far superior than Unreal used here. If fact, Batman AC looks like sometimes like a 2007 game.
