Batman: Arkham City Review
Posted: 8 months ago, last updated 6 months ago.
The game starts with Bruce Wayne preparing to start a press conference to talk about the new Arkham City prisons, he is quickly detained and imprisoned in the city as a political prisoner. He contacts Alfred to gather his resources and becomes, Batman.
Batman: Arkham City expands on the open-world and combat from the first game. The full district of Gotham is five times bigger than Arkham Asylum. There is more to explore, more thugs to fight, more villainous plans to quash, and more space for the Riddler to openly challenge you.
Core gameplay is similar, except that you can now you can play as Catwoman. She is required to complete some areas with her unique skill set. This provides more dynamic gameplay in comparison to the first game.
