The follow up to Arkham Asylum, and like any great comic book sequel, Arkham City doesn't fail to disappoint. Proving that more of a good thing can make that thing great. The amazing fight system which was implemented in the first game is back, with enough Subtle improvements to make the worlds greatest detective grin.
The story line again reads like something ripped from a comic book and brought to life for me and my fellow gamers to enjoy. Doctor Hugo Strange who mysteriously vanished years before after finding out Batman's real identity is back, and he's running Arkham City, a high tech prison designed to replace Black Gate prison as the home to Gotham's most dangerous and insane inmates. Strange has plans to enact something known as protocol 10, and as a start to his plan he captures Bruce Wayne and warns him against trying to stop his plan.
Obviously Batman will not, and can not allow this dastardly to succeed, after a thrilling escape from Custody and a run in with Penguin you're off and running on a wonderful comic adventure to stop protocol 10, stop Hugo Strange from revealing your true identity and hopefully figure out the mystery of what ties all these events together.
I'd recommend this game to people who love super hero games that don't suck, people who love beat em up's and people who love being the greatest Dectective of all time in one of the greatest super hero video games ever made. Did I mention you get to play as Catwoman...
