Batman: Arkham City review

Reviewed October 25, 2011

Tom Chick says: "Has a virtual place ever been such a canny combination of story backdrop, richly atmospheric graphics, and thrilling playground as this walled off section of Gotham City converted into a prison? Arkham City is densely packed with things to see, things to hear, and things to do. Gliding over the rooftops can be as rewarding as strolling along the streets. Rocksteady's city is a spectacle through and through, even more beautiful than Ubisoft's Assassin's Creeds for how it's so true to its fanciful Gothic tone."

Batman: Arkham City review

Reviewed October 29, 2011

Suskie says: "It reminded me of the first time I played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, not just because its awesome though it certainly is but for how thoroughly it explores the potential of its fictional, decades-old universe in the context of interactive entertainment. This is the definitive Batman game; if you were to take out the franchise-specific characters and settings and leave the design itself intact, it would still feel distinctly like a Batman game."
