User Rating: 9.5 | Batman: Arkham City X360
Batman Arkham Asylum was that one game that was either gonna suck and end up being a terrible game or a decent action game to take away a few hours of your time. But to many peoples surprise it ended up being one of the best games of 2009 and becoming an excellent, memorable adventure game. 2 years later we get Arkham City. Taking place about 6 months after the end of the first game, arkham city delivers on the story, graphics, gameplay, and design. With some little flaws here and there. The story is extremely engaging and the pacing is practically perfect leading you on as batman discovers whats really going on in this strange setup for a prison. The writing and story is done by Batman comic veterans in this so they know what they're doing. The gameplay and designed has expanded from Akrham Asylum rather than evolved. Which isn't a bad thing. The fighting combat system is more advanced and definitely requires you to think it through. The enemies are no push over and are constantly covered in armor, shields, armed with guns, knives and other weapons. The predator mode is more advanced and puts you in multiple situations to force you to use specific gadgets to overcome the problem. Arkham Asylum was open and free to explore, however there wasn't much to do besides finding riddler trophies and solving riddles, occasionally finding a thug or two to beat up. But AC is WAY bigger and gives you much to do. From just exploring, beating baddies in either combat or predator, solving riddles, and being a badass. The graphics are run on the Unreal 3 engine which one of the best game engines to use. The details and animations are all very smooth and vibrant. This game is a must have for any batman fan and those who enjoy action games. Batman AC gets a 9.5
