This game is no joke. The first game was a polished product, but it was a little repetitive.
This sequel addresses that by expanding the scope. You can explore the whole city of Gotham, and it's pretty spectacular! Also, the storyline incorporates a ton of traditional Batman villains.
I really like this one. Definitely better than the original - and that's saying something.
This game is a well polished 3D type beat em' up. But as much as I liked the game, after beating it once there really is no point in playing it again, I couldn't get into it again after beating it. I purchased it for my high end PC, but it runs slow, I'm wondering if I should just buy a new version for PS3. I heard it will be a launch title for the new Wii U console, but I shouldn't get my hopes up. The Wii as much as I have defended it from being dead, is losing steam. It runs at a resolution of the original Xbox out of rumor, so the graphic's can't be handled by the Wii, making Arkham City a game that just can't be ported over. Regardless, Nintendo should release a grand finale for the Wii, one last great game on the console. A last nintendo great. But for now, we can only hope.
there is plenty of reason to keep playing this after you beat the game, one of the nice features is that what ever side missions you may not have finished during your regular playthrough can be finished after the game is over, and others such has searching for riddler trophies and things like that.
