Positive Comment(s)

Batman: Arkham Asylum was the greatest superhero game of all time. The sequel, Batman: Arkham City, is five times bigger and about a billion times better. You do the math.100GamesRadar+
Stands head and shoulders over its previous efforts. Despite facing stiffer competition than its predecessor, Batman: Arkham City is easily the best Batman video game of all time.100Guardian
Brave, brutal, brilliant – the gold standard by which all future videogames should be judged. [Dec 2011, p.67]97Games Master UK
Batman: Arkham City is a rare treat, much like its predecessor. Not only is it a great licensed game, it is quite possibly the best superhero game ever made.100ZTGD
Predictably and brilliantly mind-blowing. In every way that matters, this really is “The Dark Knight” to Arkham Asylum’s “Batman Begins.” [Christmas 2011, p.92]96Xbox World 360 Magazine UK
Arkham City easily beat its predecessor Arkham Asylum in every possible way. It’s a must-have and a serious contender for the “Game of the Year” title.100Eurogamer Italy
As someone who doesn’t really enjoy Superhero games, Arkham City and I hit it off from the word go, as I was pulled into the story and role of a crime fighting genius.96Console Monster
Believe the hype. Arkham City is one of the most important games made for this generation and it’s also a masterclass in design, execution and treatment.100PALGN
Arkham City, on the other hand, is a game about saving a city, Gotham City, and the experience is all the better for it.100GameShark
Batman: Arkham City isn’t just better than Batman: Arkham Asylum, it’s better than most games on the market.95IGN
