    Batman: Arkham City Getting High Reviews Across the Board

    Batman: Arkham City is looking to be one of the best Games of the Year, and is already guaranteed to get a lot of awards. It doesn't surprise me though, as the previous title, Arkham Asylum is one of my personal favourite games of all time. There's honestly nothing I can think of that I didn't like about it.. The Story, the atmosphere, characters, voice acting, gadgets and graphics. The game had it all.

    Now Arkham City is just under a week away for the United States, and 8 days for Europe/UK. The game appears to be packed with content, as said by a Game Informer reviewer, who stated that he put 60 hours into the game, and wasn't even close to 100% completion. There has already been reviews that have praised the game highly, giving it perfect 10's, and in the 90's. More will surely follow.

    Official Playstation Magazine gave the game a perfect 10.

    “Batman: Arkham City is not only the best superhero game ever made, it’s one of the best games ever made full-stop”.
    Games Master gave it a 10.

    "Revel in one of the greatest games ever conceived." He describes the combat as "near perfection" and "elevated to an entirely new level" while Arkham City as a location is "brooding and bloody massive."
    Game Informer is the same, another 10.

    They call Arkham City "the best use of a license in the industry's history."
    There is also a rumour that IGN gave it a 10 as well.

    “Arkham City not only lives up to Arkham Asylum but surpasses it in every way.”
    German mag Play 3 ended with a score of 92 percent.

    They praise Arkham City by calling the sequel "The best superhero game ever made."
    OPM Australia ended its Batman: Arkham City review with the full 10 too.

    They agreed with Games Master calling it "one of the best games ever made"
    Game2gether.de - 94%.

    + Batman
    + freeflow fighting
    + incredible atmosphere
    + gadgets
    + great controls
    + story summary when loading a savegame
    PlayGeneration - 95.

    +Top notch story and atmosphere.
    +Excellent orchestral soundtrack.
    So what do you think? What are your thoughts on Arkham City, are you just as hyped as I am?

    So stoked, I can tell I will be having a lot of fun with this one. I'll probably just play through the campaign on some easier difficulty just to enjoy the story and characters and everything else of the sort. Then I might try going for the rest of the Trophies and the Platinum

    I think the reason the Arkham Batman games work so well, is because the people making the game really understand Batman, and have done their homework and put in the effort to make the player feel as if they are in his world, fighting his fight (with his moves) and fleshing out the characters in relation to Batman.

    Rocksteady Studios is one of the premiere developers, and really deserves all the accolades they get, for not just making some kickass Batman games, but for breaking down all the preconceived notions and damage done by a dozens of horrible comic book iterations before it, in showing that comic book games can kick ass.

    I can't wait for next week to put back on the cape and say...

    Sounds awesome, although considering how good the first game was they'd have to do a lot wrong to mess it up. Shame I'm saving pennies for Uncharted and Skyrim .

    People have been calling me telling about this, batman is getting perfect scores everywhere and has been declared as the game game ever made...I know uncharted 2 has gotten over 30 perfect scores so let's see how batman pans out against that
    ...game looks more fun from the first knowing you can play with cat woman and other characters as well
