Mac Gamer HQ Reviews Batman Arkham City, Trine 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer HQ has posted written and video reviews of Feral Interactive's Batman Arkham City, as well as a written review of Frozenbyte's Trine 2. Arkham City returns player once again to the mean streets of Gotham where they will take control of the famous caped crusader as he uses gadgets and brawn to keep the city safe. Trine 2 centers around the adventures of knight, thief, and wizard heroes working to solve physics based puzzles and unravel an epic mystery.

From Arkham City Review:

The game takes place six months after the events Arkham Asylum. Since the events at Arkham Asylum, Major Sharp has built a super prison. This super prison is meant to home Gothamís biggest and baddest super criminals in one place, but behind the walls of Arkham City it is far from a prison. All the major criminals have taken territories all over the city in a bid to become the most powerful crime boss. The three most prominent bosses on the streets are Two Face, Penguin and Joker.

Behind every leader is a man pulling the strings, and in this case itís Hugo Strange. Not a lot is known about this Hugo character, but he knows a lot about Batman and Bruce Wayne specifically. In fact, he knows the greatest riddle of them all, that Bruce Wayne is Batman. This forces Batman to act quickly and find out exactly what his grand plan (Protocol 10) for Gotham is and what it involves but not before being thrown in Arkham City by Strange and his elite Tyger guards.

From Trine 2 Review:
Trine fans will recognise the characters. They are the same as in the original game. For those of you who havenít played Trine, you can play as a Knight (Pontius), Thief (Zoya) or Wizard (Amadeus), with each character offering an unique gaming style. The Knight is a DPS (damage per second) hungry fighter who hacks and slashes his way through levels. The Thief is a nippy character who uses a bow and a Grappling hook which can be fired into wooden structures and use them as a swing to get to higher areas. The Wizard has a levitate skill which can be used on objects and can conjure boxes by holding the mouse button and drawing them on screen. These can be used to stand on them and make stacks. I found the Wizard was the most resourceful character but still lacks combat skill.
