While Rocksteady hasn’t given players the keys to the Batmobile yet, gliding and leaping and diving and climbing and rappelling across this expansive playground with the use of Batman’s cape and tools offers just as much exhilarating freedom as tearing across Liberty City on a motorcycle. An example Achievement / Trophy: “Jump off the tallest building and glide for one minute without touching the ground.” Yesssss.

Batman games are like pizza: even when they’re not very good, they’re still pretty good. Next to Arkham City, Arkham Origins is a bit of a disappointment in its lack of new ideas and use of win buttons, making it the least interesting of the trilogy. But as excuses to dive back into the excellent free-flowing combat and predator takedowns go, this story isn’t bad.

Arkham City offers a greater level of expression through your various abilities than its predecessor, and is overwhelmingly generous with the distractions it lays before you from the get-go. Even if its fundamental fighting system strains at the seams, even if Batman himself is a bit of a plank, this is as expansive a realisation of the superhero as there has ever been.

From the speedy exhilaration of soaring high above the streets to the atmospheric thrill of discovering long-forgotten secrets in the tunnels below Gotham, this is an unforgettable adventure that will keep you coming back to the cape and cowl long after you've seen the credits roll.

Batman: Arkham City is stuffed to the edge of the disc with content and replay value (in addition to the gigantic campaign there’s an expanded Challenge Mode and New Game Plus), is incredible amounts of fun, is polished to perfection, has had real love poured into every aspect, and most importantly, it makes you feel like Batman. In this age of same-again sequels this outshines and improves on Arkham Asylum in every way, and it’s quite possible even if you didn’t like that one you might still like this.

The sound effects are mostly taken from the original game, but now, with added scale of Arkham City to romp through, they have much more space to play in.

Al lado de la definición del género de Acción y Aventuras debería figurar la carátula de Arkham City. Elevando de forma notable el listón del sobresaliente Arkham Asylum, el nuevo título de Rocksteady no sólo es más grande y mejor, sino que además transmite la sensación de contar con un grado de inspiración admirable por parte de sus responsables. Un videojuego sencillamente imprescindible para cualquier aficionado; sin importar sus inclinaciones jugables o sus simpatías, o no, por los cómics.

Teniendo en cuenta todo lo dicho, Arkham City sigue siendo un juego absolutamente fantástico. Aquellos que hayan esperado y se hayan mantenido a salvo de destripes y demás peligros, se encontrarán con una aventura fantástica con un genial sistema de combate. No sólo es divertido y un juego visualmente brillante, también es un título que cumple como ninguno su función de ponerte en la piel del personaje.

Difficile de trouver un véritable défaut à ce Batman Arkham City qui a balayé d'un revers de main les problèmes de son aîné. On pourra pester contre les phases de recherches d'indices aussi inutiles que par le passé, la redondance de certains modes de jeu ou la lourdeur innommable de l'installation sur PC mais au final, cela aura peu d'incidence sur le plaisir qu'on éprouve à parcourir le jeu de Rocksteady.

Disquisizioni tecniche a parte, la morale della storia è che se avete adorato il predecessore e non vedete l'ora di mettere le mani su questa nuova trasposizione videoludica delle avventure dell'uomo-pipistrello, la versione PC di Batman Arkham City è sicuramente quella gran lunga migliore di uno dei giochi più belli di questa fine 2011.
