Should I buy this game?
Hello! I have heard about many people having problems downloading both Arkham City as well as Arkham Asylum, and about some players having problems with Windows Live. My question for you is then, are they worth buying?

Are you a big Batman fan? Like the comics and the old school stuff? Then yes buy it. I rented Arkham Asylum and got Arkham City for free with my video card. I throughly enjoyed my playthrough of both. I even 100%'ed them.... but I've never played them again.

Arkham City's one major flaw was the lack of world music after a certain point. The lack of the epic music ment hours of bare sound effects that get boring really fast. Batman NEEDS the epic music to be epic. Other than that there are no Scarecrow sequences, (by far my favorite part of Asylum) since he doesn't make an apearance. And there is one area (about 10m square) that you will see MASSIVE lag, while the rest of the game will be fine.

So... Worth a play through? Heck yes! Spend money? If you're a fan or its on sale.

Note: Both games feature a "challenge mode". I personally Hate it. But it could offer many more hours of gameplay or replay to those that like it. Could bump up the value if you thought the gamplay for gameplay's sake was amazing.

Thanks for your answer! I think the biggest issue I have wheter to buy or not is the third party DRMs (SecuRom and Games for Windows Live?). At least I don't get Games for Windows Luve to work, I download it and when I open the screen and it is just about to it, the screen disappears. Everytime.

Mannerheim93, I would say definitely not. I got the game for free with my video card and have not played it, cause GFWL is like AIDS for your PC.
Also, I played the first briefly, and the controls are awful with mouse/keyboard, so you'll want to have a controller if you are willing to subject your computer to all the DRMs.

Thanks for your answer! Yeah, I decided not to buy it, too many DRMs... :/

It looks really pretty on PC. I would play it here if you have a decent machine.
