Batman: Arkham City is a spectacle fighting/partial stealth game featuring (you guessed it) the Batman.
Batman is captured by Hugo Strange and sent into Arkham City, the super prison built in part of Gotham. Batman soon learns of "Protocol 10", which Strange says will make him famous. Batman begins his quest to stop Hugo Strange and his Protocol 10 to save Gotham city. Notable villains include:
All of the characters are very well done with phenomenal voice acting. Most notably are Batman voiced by Kevin Conroy and Joker voiced by Mark Hamill (HEEEEEEHEHEEhehehee AHAAAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAhooo HA HEHEEE heee heee)
You will spend the majority of the game as the Dark Knight himself, and there's a reason he is "The most dangerous man in the world", as Superman once said. The gameplay can be split into four basic categories:
Batman is a master of all forms of martial arts, and it shows. The combat is focused on a free-flow brawl which utilizes combos after 8 uninterrupted moves and is very responsive and satisfying. The right click to counter system works very well and is very enjoyable to play.
He is the Dark Knight for a reason after all. Not all thugs are simply using their fists to try and beat you to death, some have found that bullets are far more effective. Now begins the stealth portions of the game, which are just as fun as the brawling. Stealth focuses around Takedowns. Takedowns can be silent, loud, terrifying, and much more. The thugs in the room have a very realistic reaction to things. I love (perhaps a bit too much) terrorizing thugs as I zip around, breaking more than a few of their bones.
Arkham City is a big place, and the sidewalk just ain't gonna cut it. Batman uses the Batclaw (his grapple gun) to zip around Arkham City in a very enjoyable manner. He can also use his cape to glide around like the bat he is. Parkour in the game is also very well done: not very complicated, but very effective.
And of course, what would Batman be without his toolbelt? At your disposal are all sorts of gadgets available to the Bat at any time. These gadgets range from the Batclaw, smoke pellets, explosive gel, and the classic Batarang. His gadgets are all unique in their own way, each with their own puprose and all very useful.
The game has great graphics and the in game cutscenes transition very well to actual gameplay. I don't have much else to say, I'm not a graphics guy.
Overall, I highly recommend this game. When I got it I didn't expect to play it that much. I don't like fighting games all too much. After 5 hours (straight) of "I'M BATMAN" I changed my mind.
