Batman: Arkham City Game Of The Year Edition Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition. Developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles and PC, Batman: Arkham City GOTY features all previously released downloadable content, including the Harley Quinn’s Revenge pack.

From the review:

Batman: Arkham City, like Batman: Arkham Asylum before it, employs stealth as an important tactic—Batman can melt into the shadows and surprise his foes, launching into a full out attack with a barrage of kicks, punches, flips and counter-moves. And, of course, he has some wonderful toys, ranging from the batarang, grappling gun, and new weapons like freeze blast grenades and the Disruptor, which can remotely disable enemy weapons.

Arkham City is a wide-open area to explore; this is Batman meets Grand Theft Auto, to a certain degree, though there is certainly a plot line you’re expected to follow, achieving objectives in your ultimate aim to find out what, exactly, is going on in Arkham City.

Atmospherically and technically, Arkham City is a marvel. The game looks and sounds phenomenal—a cinematic experience that dovetails nicely with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight film trilogy. Don’t expect to hear Christian Bale, however; instead, the game’s developers sought the vocal talents of veteran Batman animated series actors Kevin Conroy and Mark “Luke Skywalker” Hamill (who excellently reprises his role as the Joker). The game’s got a great pedigree—the story was penned by veteran Batman writer Paul Dini, and it fits nicely into the comic book mythology.
