Joker takes Arkham Asylum, Batman takes it back. That was the goal of Arkham City's predicessor. In every sense of the word, this game gives you all the excitement of the Batman comic books and movies, by giving you a sense that this could happen in the real world. What do I mean? In a normal game you give one or two hits, the opponent is down and there isn't any problem. They are laid out on the ground, they blink and disappear, not the case in the real world. Most guys don't have glass jaws and one or two hits is only gonna make your opponent angry. Especially if there are 4 or 5 guys. Here Batman hits a guy, dazes him and he gets back up. It will probably take about 7 to 15 punches to lay a guy out and or one well placed strike in a critical spot on the body. Against 20 guys (yup you heard me) it is really important you anticipate these hits (you sense hits before an opponent strikes).
|Bat Sonar (detective mode) is my favorite tool|
|Batman has Catwoman wrapped around his....umm...nevermind|
Supporting cast......getting the Bats back!! Alfred is on assit from the Batcave, Oracle is in his ear, Robin comes in and makes an appearance and Catwoman is a playable character who is just a butt-kickingly awesome as Batman.these guys are all there to assist him (not that he needs it). Catwoman's side story is a treat. Even tho i have beaten the game she still has unfinished business in Arkham City that I'm still working her through. Her main rouges are Two-Face and Poison Ivy. Nightwing will have a bundle available Nov. 1st and Robin will have a bundle available Nov. 22. each of these bundles will make them playable characters.
|No more lame bird jokes|
|Nightwing hurts people too|
The game play flows pretty well and it truly deserves the perfect ratings that go with it. Most of the people I have talked to about the game cannot put nit down. I can't say enough about this marvelous game that will describe the true DOPENESS that this game has. The musical score gets you hype, the tidbits of "bat lore" gives you goosebumps and the side missions and the Riddler Challenges keep you engaged.....not to mention the surprise ending......your mind will be blown.....by the end my son and I looked at each other and said almost in unison.."REALLY?" Trust me, this game and with all of the cool add-ons and the other goodies the replay value will be high. Well what do you think? Did Arkham City live up to the hype for you? Will you be making criminals bleed or have you been hurting them already? let me know what you think....PEACE!!
|Mister J don't look so good!!|
|Two-Face show Catwoman a good time..|
|I know you wanna get in them skins....all the new skins available on Arkham City...I got the animated series one|
