    Truly worthy of batman

    At first I was a bit skeptical because I don't play superhero games. I'm more of a RPG/FPS kinda guy, and tend to look at superhero games with a skeptical frown. The reviews and the steam sale won me over so I got it bec... Read Full Review

    This is What It Must Be Like to Be Batman

    Licensed games, as a general rule, aren't normally anything to write home about, but they've been especially cruel to Batman in the past. Then, in 2009, Batman: Arkham Asylum came along and, against all odds, revolutio... Read Full Review

    An Outstanding Sequel, And One Of The Best Games Of All Time.

    The Dark Knight returns for a second helping of super hero greatness

    In 2009, Rocksteady shocked everyone with Batman Arkham Asylum. I don’t think anybody expected that game to be as fun and intuitive as it was but Rocksteady really hit the ball out of the park and set the bar for ... Read Full Review

    Arkhamverse? More like AWESOMEverse!

    A very enjoyable, but overly familiar and simply inferior sequel.

    Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to the surprisingly great Batman: Arkham Asylum, the debut game from London-based Rocksteady Studios. Arkham Asylum proved that it is possible to make a genuinely great superhero game wi... Read Full Review
