SPOILER WARNING. From here in out I’m going to be giving away story and plot points. If you intend on playing the game and want to remain spoiler-free, stop flipping reading, you idiots. For everyone else, welcome.
A little re-cap before we begin – Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to Rocksteady’s 2009 hit Batman: Arkham Asylum, in which you are tasked with stopping the nefarious Joker as he breaks free and takes over the institute for the criminally insane. Locked inside the asylum with The Joker and many other members of Batman’s colourful cast, you are the only thing that stands in their way of the total destruction of Gotham City.
Arkham Asylum is a brilliant game. Crafted with such care and attention to detail, it finally gave Batman, and superheroes, a videogame they could be proud of. It would of been my Game Of The Year, if not for a stellar Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves. To say I was excited about Asylum’s follow-up, Arkham City, would be an understatement. Let’s get to it, shall we?
