Batman: Arkham City


$55.00 Released October, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Unbelievable ending to the story. Easily better than the previous game Batman: Arkham Asylum. You can play the game twice since there are side missions to complete.

The Cons:Not an "open city" like Liberty city- A little misleading to some. Can spend up to 40 or 50 hours of your life immersed in the game (not sure if that's a good or bad thing).

Batman: Arkham City is an action-adventure video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics, developed in conjunction with Rocksteady Studios. Functioning as a sequel to the highly-successful Arkham Asylum title, this game utilizes a stealth-based navigation system comparable to the Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell series'.
