Batman™: Arkham City Goty Edition

  -  
For a guy who has battled the Joker, overpowered Bane, outsmarted the Riddler and fumigated Poison Ivy, I had no idea Batman's greachạy thử challenge would be fighting for attention on his own game box. The Arksi mê City - Game of the Year Edition proudly announces that it's a "10 out of 10" in a fonts so large that somebody wouldn't feel stupid for accidentally thinking that's the title. After all, the game's actual hình ảnh is dwarfed by four different magazine quotes, three company logos, an ESRB rating, a các mục of bullet points & the large "trò chơi of the Year" strip at the top. It's hard khổng lồ what is busier - the seedy underbelly of Gotđam mê City or this cover art.If any game can get away with this kind of gaudy box thiết kế, it would be Batman: Arksi City. This is a game that masterfully builds onkhổng lồ the greachạy thử superanh hùng game of all time, offering an open world full of bad guys khổng lồ traông chồng down và destructive plans to lớn thwart. I loved this game when I first played it, và my admiration for this sequel hasn't changed much in the last eight months.In case you missed the game the first time around, Arkham mê City is the name of a sectioned off part of Gotsay mê. It's behind these fortified walls that Batman's biggest foes (và their followers) are living, hatching up a nefarious plan that could end with the death of a superanh hùng. The word on the street is that the Joker is dying after his last bout with Batman. The Titan formula he pumped into lớn his blood is slowly killing hlặng & he's been searching for a cure. The good news is that he is poisoned and there's a good chance he might die tonight. Unfortunately, the bad news is that he injected our nhân vật with the same poison. It's up to you khổng lồ trachồng down the cure và save yourself & the city.

Much like Arkmê mẩn Asylum, this atmospheric sequel finds ways khổng lồ have sầu Batman interact with a number of Gotham's greakiểm tra criminals, including the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, Ra's al Ghul, the Riddler & many more. Some of the familiar faces show up for only a few fleeting moments (such as Bane & Two Face), while others play a surprisingly large part in the story (like the Catwoman, who even has her own missions). Even with a dizzying cast, Rocksteady somehow found a way lớn let every character have their moment.Batman: Arksay đắm City doesn't deviate far from the Arkđắm say Asylum formula. While there are certainly more villains khổng lồ battle this time around (including some I have sầu completely forgotten lớn mention), the story still unfolds in a linear fashion. You are still swooping through the night beating up thugs, sneaking up on armed guards & using all of those wonderful toys. The only real difference is the location, which is significantly larger and more open.Not only does this Game of the Year Edition comes with the exactly same game I fell in love sầu with almost a year ago, it manages khổng lồ add in all of the downloadable nội dung và more. This time around Arksay mê City is a two-disc phối, with one disc dedicated to lớn the Catwoman Bundle Pachồng (which came không tính phí with the purchase of a new copy of Arkmê mẩn City), the Robin Bundle Pachồng, the Nightwing Bundle Pack, a Challenge Map Pachồng và the just-released story-based DLC, Harley Quinn's Revenge. Similar lớn the Borderlands Games of the Year Edition, all of the packs can be installed on as many hard drives as you want and are not locked to lớn any one Xbox Live trương mục.

The most substantial piece of nội dung is Harley Quinn's Revenge, a post-credits coda featuring another hour or so of story-driven gameplay. Harley isn't especially happy with how things turned out in Arkđắm đuối City (& for good reason), so she devises a scheme to lớn kidnap Batman. That means that the boy wonder himself, Robin, will have khổng lồ swoop in to save the day. For the most part Robin controls exactly like Batman, with the exception that he's speedy và has a shield.Sadly, Harley's gr& scheme feels tossed together at the last minute & is over just as it's getting started. What made Arksay đắm City so much fun is that the bad guys skết thúc you for a loop, always changing the rules & forcing Batman khổng lồ adapt. You didn't just take a straight path to lớn a trùm fight; you met with other bad guys và had to complete boss-specific challenges. It's too bad all of that is thrown out the window in Harley Quinn's Revenge.This expansion recycles a lot of old ideas without adding much new. The countless arena battles are sewn together with cinemas, but it's not an especially compelling story. Worse yet, the game ends in the most anticlimactic way possible. Harley Quinn isn't a strong enough character to stvà on her own, and that's blatantly obvious in this lackluster mission paông xã.

Most of the other packs are for the Riddler's challenge mode, the least exciting part of Arksay đắm City. Here you're tested on your combat và stealth skills, all while abiding by the game's rules và suggestions. The on-disc downloadable nội dung adds new Robin và Nightwing challenges, as well as a number of new levels khổng lồ play on. These new characters are different enough to lớn warrant some attention, though gamers not inlớn this mode the first time around won't be any more impressed with the addition of Robin.Believe sầu it or not, I had the most fun with all of the different skins và costumes. Every anh hùng has a surprisingly deep collection of looks, including designs that reference the Adam West TV show, Batman Beyond và the flagship animated cartoon from the 1990s. I love all of Catwoman's outfit changes, reminding me of just how many svào women have zipped up that leather cát suit.While I appreciate the challenge room nội dung, it's a shame Rocksteady didn't spkết thúc more time developing a big post-game storyline. Harley's linear quest wouldn't have sầu felt nearly as shallow had it come after a Killer Croc storyline, another Riddler adventure và a real conclusion to the Two Face storyline. Add a few small storylines together and you have an impressive sầu phối of expansion packs. Sadly all we're left with is one, và even that one was disappointing.

These days every trò chơi of the Year Edition re-release comes with some sort of downloadable movie or soundtrachồng, và Arksi City is no exception. This time around it's Batman: Year One, an hour-long animated movie starring Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) và Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica). I'm sure it's delightful.Regardless of whether you buy this massive sầu trò chơi of the Year Edition or just the plain old single-disc release from last year, Arkham mê City is a must-own action game. The writing is sharp, the characters are fully realized & the action is always exciting. This is a new high water mark for comic book-based video clip games. Some of the additional nội dung may be disappointing, but Batman: Arkđê mê City - trò chơi of the Year Edition is definitely the most comprehensive sầu version of this incredible game.
How good is Batman: Arkmê mẩn City - trò chơi of the Year Edition? So good that the stellar single-player storyline makes me completely forget about the lackluster additional nội dung on disc 2. This may be the most comprehensive version of last year"s must-own comic book game, but that doesn"t mean that this two-disc package is better!
