Batman Arkham City is the first game I have played and written a review for in quite some time and I gotta say it kind of made me miss doing these reviews, so lets dive right in.
Being a fan of Arkham Asylum, I jumped into this game and immediately felt comfortable with the controls, look and feel of the game, so anyone who played the first game should be able to jump right in and start playing. As for anyone new to the series would probably need a bit of time to get used to all the controls and and all the cool things you can actually do as far as combat goes.
As for the mechanics, they are still a bit rough and stiff just like the first game however this doesn't take anything away as it makes you feel more like how you would expect Batman to move with all his armor. There is of course a ton of villains and if you are unfamiliar with the game and just wanna get through it as fast as possible you'll probably end up getting bored and exhausted, but if you are someone that is more experienced with the types of combat and maneuvering that Batman has to offer you should find it fun and interesting (or if you're someone like me who just likes to hang people from gargoyles whenever the opportunity presents itself you're still guaranteed to have a good time).
Batman: Arkham City does basically everything right, I cant really find any aspect of the game that I hated or even disliked in the slightest. From the amazing voice acting, to the great story line and amazing combat and maneuvering it all just fits together so well and really makes you feel like The Batman.
This game is a must for fans and newcomers alike, I highly suggest you guys pick this one up.
