Batman: Arkham City is the most recent entry into the Batman game franchise, and it's one of the most enjoyable games of the last year. The PC game has sold millions of units since its release and many gamers are discovering exactly what the Dark Knight has to offer.
When you start playing Batman: Arkham City, one of the first thing that you'll notice is just how amazing the environment looks. If you played the predecessor to this game, Batman: Arkham Asylum, you know that the game was set inside the local insane asylum. This time, part of Gotham has been cordoned off to act as the new prison/asylum for the city's most vicious criminals. This means that you get to move throughout a big portion of the city, and see everything that has to offer. The world looks very realistic, and Batman can move around most of it with ease.
One of the coolest features of this game is how Batman can use his grappling device to soar across the top of the city. He can dive off buildings and glide while shooting his grappling hook to grab onto the next building. This makes it possible to see the city in style and to soak in the amazing graphics.
The main story of the game makes it possible for you to see almost all of Gotham's most notorious villains. You'll run into The Joker, Penguin, Two Face, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Clayface, Hugo Strange, and Ra'as Al Ghul among others. The story is pretty entertaining, but you also have the option of going off on several side missions along the way. You can save civilians and political prisoners. You can investigate murders, and use your high-tech equipment to do some serious detective work.
Although this game has a lot of good features, one of the drawbacks is that some of the boss fights are pretty easy. You might die a few times on some of the bosses, but the majority of them can be defeated on the first try. This is evident in the final boss battle more than anywhere else.
If you are looking for an exciting action game to check out, Batman: Arkham City is definitely one that you'll want to play. It has great graphics, entertaining combat sequences, puzzles to keep you interested, and a lot of other nice features that almost everyone will enjoy.
