The first time i played Batman Arkham Asylum i could not wait for the sequel. And after playing Batman Arkham City, i can safely say that it is the best superhero game ever. The plot is perfect, the scenery is perfect, the game play is perfect. You could tell that the creators improved on the detective aspect of the game massively. (Meaning that you don't have to spend as much time in detective mode.) The characters are well introduced and every character has a vital part to play in the plot. The voices for the characters were well suited (Mark Hamill giving another astounding performance as the joker.) But i have to say, the thing i loved most about the game was the additional things, the side missions were great and the Riddler trophies, though challenging, were fun to do. I recommend this game to anyone who either enjoys Batman or a quality game.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


During one of Hugo Strange's game-over screens, he will say "So, you failed to live up to his expectations. How predictable." It isn't explained who the "his" is, but it seems likely that he is talking about Quincy Sharp, who believed Batman to be some sort of worthy successor for his work. He's actually talking about Ra's Al Ghul.


Oracle: Bruce? Where the hell have you been? I thought you were dead.
Batman: Sorry to disappoint you.


The Deadshot side mission ignores all the laws of physics to justify the assassin's ridiculous kill shots. When Batman is hunting Deadshot, his second victim is sniped through a full water tower. Even assuming there was a gun that could still be lethal after shooting through 6 feet of water (and MythBusters confirmed there is not), the bullet's trajectory is completely unaffected. All of Deadshot's bullet trajectories follow straight lines instead of parabolic arcs like they do in real life. Deadshot's bullet trajectories are determined using only a single point of impact, which is impossible. Indeed, the trajectory of Joker's bullet can only be traced using the bullet hole on the floor and the hole in the window. One of Deadshot's victims is killed by a bullet ricochet, something the MythBusters also proved to be impossible.
