Batman Arkham City: "One of the best games ever made" 10/10 score
 
It's being hailed as one of the best and most perfect games ever.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com...first-verdict/

This game is getting incredible reviews all across the board. As I predicted a few months ago Arkham City is going to be the dominant GOTY winner in 2011. Forget Uncharted. I'm buying it opening day.




Presentation: Endlessly creative, perfectly moody, and technically flawless. This is Epic's Unreal engine pushed to its absolute limit.

Sound: Alternatively foreboding and frantic, the game's orchestral soundtrack matches the on-sccreen action perfectly. Voice acting is brilliant.

Controls: Complex and initially overwhelming but also logical and responsive. It'll take a while to get used to them, but once you do it feels perfectly natural flinging Batman around.

Replay Value: Immense. A massive main quest, dozens of side missions, Riddler challenges, secondary game modes, and DLC will keep most people occupied for months.

VERDICT: We can't imagine how a superhero game could be better than this. Absolutely sublime.

i played the first game, it was amazing. planning on playing this one. the only thing that throws me off is the no online multiplayer. also, i saw that the joker looks sick in this game.

I just finished Arkham Asylum and it was one of the best games I've ever played. I rarely say that.

I'm not going to pick up City just yet though. Have Dark Souls to play through plus a couple other pre-orders coming in November. I'll wait until there is a price drop for this.

I'm getting it on PC to really max out the experience... but the PC version got delayed a month. I have plenty to play though. Haven't even touched Dark Souls yet, and I'm in the middle of Witcher 2. Which, by the way, is one of THE best games I've ever played. And I've played a lot games.

I'm sad Witcher 2 is lagging on console release! I heard it's right up my alley of gaming from friends. My laptop probably can't handle it...

Seeing some of the rather frustrating reviews on 2K12, I'm thinking about picking this up instead and delay getting 2K12 till next month.

They will patch up the lame trade AI hopefully. Honestly My Player is insanely good this year. I never feel bored and like I'm grinding like I did in 2K10 and 2K11. The ONLY flaw (it's a massive one) is the stupid trades. It makes it less fun and more unrealistic when you have new teammates every 5 games. Plus going from Kyle Lowry being your PG to Jordan Farmer for example isn't fun at all!

I will probably check this out on gamefly. Hopefully its a little more sandboxy than the last one.

Dude it's done in a GTA map sized city. Of course it's more sandbox. BTW.... Game Informer just gave this game a 10! This is going to be one of the GOAT games for sure.

Have it all sorted out now. Blockbuster is getting 10 copies and I'm gonna be there before they open by a few mins and grab one of them. I'll eventually buy it... but may as well utilize my unlimited Blockbuster pass. I can keep it for as long as I want... will probably keep for a month.

It's apparently huge. Game Informer's review is claiming they're about 60 hours in and 40% complete.

60hrs in and only 40% complete? :wtf: Unless its similar to GTA because the main story missions only accounted for 60-63% of the 100%. The rest were side missions and tedious explorations/findings.

How do they let you keep a game for an entire month? What are you paying?

Not going to be able to get the game until November sometime. Ah well, i'm sure it'll be worth the wait.
