I have Arkham asylum standard and GOTY editions for xbox and pc, the same with Arkham city, i bought the same games twice, that's how good they are :)
I got both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for 12€ on steam. What a bargain! Its kinda incredible. I love that the games are more Burton than Nolan.
Arkham Asylum 9/10 - Arkham City 10+++/10
Simply the best superhero game there is. Well done Rosksteady!
yeah i got to play it at my friends house for about 20 minutes and when i get back home(im on a trip across the USA) im gonna buy it and pre order gta5!!
I usually play for like 1 hour, or 2 as max...
but when I play this, I take like 4 or 5 man I don't wanna stop lol but i start getting physically tired... :P
the game is already awesome but the fact that you're playing as "Batman" makes it even more awesome!!!
playing as catwoman is pretty cool too, gives the game another feel :) she is pretty fast and climbs walls and ceilings and stuff...
yeah, astonishing game!
9.0 is a respectable score but i think a 9.5 would be more fitting. I personally cant seem to find anything negative to say about this game. Not just the best comic hero adaptation, but one of the best games in recent memory. Seems like only games that get those scores these days are those that have multiplayer component also (ex. Starcraft 2, Uncharted 2). I guess due to the "more bang for your buck" factor. In any case.....BRING ON THE NEXT ONE!!
I got preordered it after beating Arkham Asylum and I am SO happy i did. P.S The game is really long. @fpsrussia
This is probably the best review for this game that I've seen. It explains everything and doesn't have spoilers.
Great review as usual, Carolyn. I was a big fan of Arkham Asylum (that's an understatement) and was afraid A.C. would be just a retread. Your review gave me the information I needed to decide whether or not to purchase (I will be purchasing). This one really looks amazing.
will i able to play this game with 8600 GT 512 MB VGA ,4 GB DDR3 Ram and 3.0 GHZ dual core processor..?
I thought it would have gotten a higher score than this.
Not that it's a bad score or anything, it's just that I would have given Batman: Arkham Asylum a 9.5 and this game is clearly far superior yet gets the same score...
FINALLY!! a GameSpot review where they don't show you every cutscene of the game to the point where u already know what will happen
One of the best games I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Thank you rocksteady for such an enjoyable experience
@suko1983 Haven't played either.
@Awesome2001 #forever alone xD
hi there to you too
@naryanrobinson ...You serious? 0.5
@Smokey2003 mother f .
@Mistwaver1985 ... yet you're fine paying $600+ for a gaming PC :/
@dawnofhero Consoles are cheap for a reason because they're outdated.
@dawnofhero Consoles perform only one task really well, where as PCs can be used for an extremely wide range of things. Enjoy your console closet nerd.
@dawnofhero PC gaming isn't for everyone. Why invest time and money into a hog when you're happy riding a moped.
@Darothic Right, but who wants to pay an additional $600+ for slightly better graphics when you can get just as good a version on a console? I was able to buy a new PS3+Arkham City for $200 at GameStop. To me, that's a better deal than building/buying a gaming PC. So, more power to you PC nerds, but I'm fine with my PS3 thank you very much.
