Arkham City is a tour de force of programming, clearly developed by the best in the industry. My only issue is the publisher's heavy-handed use of DLC. Each copy of the game contains a code for downloading Catwoman which can only be redeemed online. This apparent swipe at the used game market is being done at the expense of honest customers who paid full price. Other than that, Arkham City is the Batman game you've always dreamed of.

Disquisizioni tecniche a parte, la morale della storia è che se avete adorato il predecessore e non vedete l'ora di mettere le mani su questa nuova trasposizione videoludica delle avventure dell'uomo-pipistrello, la versione PC di Batman Arkham City è sicuramente quella gran lunga migliore di uno dei giochi più belli di questa fine 2011.

À jeu exceptionnel, note exceptionnelle. Si la politique de DLC de Warner est plus que discutable, on ne peut que s'incliner devant l'immense richesse de ce nouvel opus. Amoureux du Chevalier Noir, les développeurs de Rocksteady transforment l'essai et livrent un titre long, généreux, au gameplay agréable et visuellement superbe. Rien à redire, c'est un chef-d'œuvre.

Batman: Arkham City is an unparalleled artistic achievement, with great melee combat, an interesting (though wandering) story and lots of gameplay options. But it really is possible to have too much of a good thing, which is why Arkham Asylum will always be the better game. Sometimes just a slice is better than the whole thing.

Rocksteady have managed the impossible: they have taken the definitive Batman experience of Arkham Asylum and improved on it in every possible way. By taking Batman off of Arkham Island and throwing him in to the dingy streets of Arkham City Rocksteady have made not only the finest Superhero game, but one of the best games of this generation.

Few games are as this polished and deep and when you revel in all your memories and experiences with the game as the end credits roll, you know you’ve played a superior piece of entertainment. This isn’t a game that you’ll play now and forget about a week later, nor isn’t something that should be excluded from every conceivable game of the year list.

Batman: Arkham City is one of those games that rightly garnered much attention with the end of 2011 Game of the Year lists. Maybe it didn't get as much attention from PC gamers, but it should. If you want to have the definitive Arkham City experience, I'd say PC is the way to go.

The open world adds so much to the Batman experience. While I was worried that it might leave the franchise feeling rudderless and without focus. It achieves the opposite, enabling an all-encompassing Batman experience with wonderful side missions, near-perfect central missions, all wrapped up in a pretty package. Remember when people would say “How come nobody can make a great Batman game?” Well, Rocksteady have now made two, and Arkham City is the Batman game of your dreams. Outstanding, and deserving of a top ten placement on any Greatest Games list you might ever compile.

Batman: Arkham City is an outstanding sequel in every department, with stunning gameplay, an immersive world to explore and fantastically well-realised characterisation. The music and voice-acting is exemplary and the visuals are gorgeous. Batman: Arkham City is an incredibly well-crafted, labour of love and no mistake. In short, it's genius.

(1) If Catwoman hadn't been involved, I would have rated Arkham City a 9.9 -- at worst. As it is, with so much content, it feels like it's bursting at the seams. Batman: Arkham City is a game that will be in the running for Game of the Year at many websites. It is most deserving of it. Rocksteady took Arkham Asylum and absolutely blew it away with this fantastic followup. (2) Superhero games often struggle to become remarkable or even average. The reason can be puzzling, but be rest assured, if you've never picked up a Batman game in today's world of gaming, you're missing out on a lot. Even if you're not particularly a comic-book fan, this game is a definite must.

En reprenant l'excellente recette d'Arkham Asylum et en la transposant à un monde ouvert, les développeurs de Rocksteady nous offrent un titre d'une richesse et d'une diversité incroyables, dont on ne parvient pas à se lasser malgré un contenu gargantuesque qui lui confère une durée de vie impressionnante. Il faut dire que Batman Arkham City ne souffre quasiment aucun défaut, que ce soit dans son gameplay ou dans sa réalisation, et c'est donc avec entrain que l'on passe de longues heures en compagnie du Dark Knight. Une seule question se pose désormais : que pourront-ils bien inventer pour un éventuel troisième opus ?

Batman: Arkham City is a tremendous sequel and an incredible game. Arguably offering an even more superior Batman experience than the recent Christopher Nolan films, fans of the Dark Knight and his extensive comic book universe couldn’t have asked for more. Sadly, Mark Hamill has confirmed that this will be his last ever performance as the Joker – a true shame, although it makes possible an ending that is memorable, hard-hitting and strangely poignant. Rocksteady Studios have not only created one of 2011’s best games, but the greatest superhero video game of all time. Essential.

Per chi apprezza la creazione originale di Bob Kane, questo Arkham City è la massima espressione videoludica di un mito, nonchè la celebrazione di un universo fumettistico e cinematografico ricchissimo in personaggi, luoghi e intrecci riconoscibili a prima vista. Il gioco è tecnicamente superbo, ha una longevità elevatissima (dicevo, circa 100 ore di gameplay!), una giocabilità divertente e esaltante ed un rooster di cattivoni memorabili! Non si può proprio chiedere di più! Dovete assolutamente fare vostro questo Batman Arkham City dei Rocksteady Studios!

Difficile de trouver un véritable défaut à ce Batman Arkham City qui a balayé d'un revers de main les problèmes de son aîné. On pourra pester contre les phases de recherches d'indices aussi inutiles que par le passé, la redondance de certains modes de jeu ou la lourdeur innommable de l'installation sur PC mais au final, cela aura peu d'incidence sur le plaisir qu'on éprouve à parcourir le jeu de Rocksteady. Une fois de plus, les développeurs anglais ont mis tout leur talent et leur amour du Dark Knight au service d'un grand jeu. Somptueux dans la forme, malgré le non support temporaire de DirectX 11, irréprochable dans le fond, Arkham City se positionne de lui-même comme le modèle à suivre, l'exemple qu'on se devra de citer quand on évoquera le super-héros vidéoludique. Plus que jamais d'actualité, la création de Bob Kane conserve ici son immortalité. Amen.

Batman: Arkham City isn't perfect, but listing the little things I didn't like gets in the way of all the stuff I adored. The voice acting, the challenges, the amazing opening, the unbelievable ending and the feeling of being the Dark Knight -- these are the things that standout looking back. I've beaten this thing twice and still want to call in sick and chase Riddler Trophies. Batman: Arkham City isn't just better than Batman: Arkham Asylum, it's better than most games on the market.

Batman: Arkham City è un capolavoro. Su computer per fortuna è rimasto tale, e vanta un port praticamente perfetto e una veste grafica ancor più spettacolare. Sembra ci sia qualche problema per chi vuole sfruttare le DirectX 11, ma non è nulla che non possa venir corretto con una rapida patch da Rocksteady. Tutto il resto è impeccabile, crash praticamente nulli, pochissimi bug puramente marginali, e il pacchetto completo in tutto il suo splendore. Se volete godervelo al massimo delle sue potenzialità aspettate un pochino, non ci vorrà molto a risolvere le complicazioni grafiche di cui abbiamo discusso qui sopra, a tutti gli altri invece lo consigliamo da subito. Non è un gioco da farsi scappare.

Alles in allem ist „Batman: Arkham City“ nicht nur der beste Superhelden-Release in diesem Jahr, sondern auch genreübergreifend einer der besten Titel, die das Jahr 2011 hervorgebracht hat. Eine dichte, packende Story, Inhalte für bis zu 35 Stunden Spielzeit und eine handwerkliche Topleistung des Entwicklers Rocksteady machen den zweiten Batman-Titel zu einem Must-Have in diesem Winter.

Though the ending is surprising, in a way, the story isn’t the main focus of Batman: Arkham City. Exploring and adventuring come first, you have so much to do that the hours just slip by you. Yes, the boss fights are probably too easy, the narrative too short, the framerate goes down on occasion and not all the players will appreciate searching through every nook and cranny to find trophies. But it’s all up to you and Arkham City offers a variety that not a lot of new games have nowadays.

Ich hatte es für unmöglich gehalten, dass Arkham City an seinen grandiosen Vorgänger heranreicht. Doch siehe da, Batmans zweiter Auftritt ist sogar ein gutes Stück besser geworden. Die Geschichte und Figuren, die Gadgets, die launigen Kämpfe und die große, schaurig-schöne Spielwelt, all das vermengt Rocksteady zu einem hochgradig packenden Action-Abenteuer, in dem sämtliche Spielelemente perfekt ineinander greifen und das dank der zahlreichen Quests und Rätsel auch über die tolle Haupthandlung hinaus für Wochen motiviert. Ein Meisterwerk, das auf die Festplatte jedes Actionspielers gehört.

Batman : Arkham City valait bel et bien la peine d'attendre deux longues années pour pouvoir y goûter, les développeurs de chez Rocksteady ne s'étant vraiment pas moqués des joueurs. Tout le jeu impose le respect, que cela soit sur l'aspect technique soigné et sans bavures, avec une carte immense et détaillée où chaque quartier se différencie sans peine de l'un à l'autre ; sur les animations toutes plus stylées les unes que les autres, en particulier lors des combats (regarder se mouvoir Catwoman est un plaisir qu'il est difficile de rechigner) ; sur la diversité et le nombre d'actions à effectuer dans Arkham City et qui nous demanderont beaucoup de temps, et j'en passe... Non, vraiment, que l'on soit fan ou non du Chevalier Noir, passer à côté d'un tel chef d'œuvre serait vraiment l'une des plus grosses erreurs qu'un gamer digne de ce nom pourrait faire… même si évidemment tous les goûts et les couleurs sont dans la nature. En tout cas, chez XboxFrance, on adore.

When I question why I was looking forward to Arkham City so much I realised its because Batman makes me feel like a big kid. The darks streets of Gotham are where I imagine being, the nameless thugs are who I dream of fighting, the femme fatales like Catwoman and Harley Quinn are who I fantasize about…fantasizing about, but most importantly, Batman is who I dream of being. Arkham Asylum let me be a big kid again and pretend to be Batman, and that’s why I was childishly excited about Arkham City. I was right to be excited. Arkham City isn’t just a game. Its a way that you can be Batman for a few days. Maybe in the next game we will get to be Batman in Gotham itself and maybe that will be worth a perfect score. In the meantime, let me finish this review so i can get back to cleaning up those streets. The Bat signal is calling…

Rocksteady has managed to not only create one of the greatest pieces of Batman culture, but has also elevated Catwoman to the upper echelon’s of gaming’s most able-bodied females. Between the wealth of campaign content and Riddler’s Revenge modes, Batman: Arkham City will likely be spinning in my disc drive until The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters next year, and probably long after that given suitable DLC. It’s not a perfect game, but it’s also hard to imagine where Rocksteady can go from here.

Rocksteadys Gotham ist eine Wucht! Obwohl Arkham City nur einen kleinen Teil der Metropole abbildet, steckt in dem Gefängnisviertel ein spielerisches Schwergewicht, das eine frei begehbare Welt hervorragend mit einer geradlinigen Geschichte vereint. Wer zum zweiten Mal in das Kostüm dieses Batman schlüpft, erlebt herausragende Schauspieler in markanten Rollen, genießt stimmungsvolle Aussichten, bekämpft zahlreiche Schurken in abwechslungsreichen Nebenmissionen, bringt den Kopf in hunderten vertrackten Rätseln zum Rauchen und folgt einer Geschichte, die genau so auf knisternden A4-Seiten erzählt werden könnte. Umso bedauerlicher, dass wichtige Entwicklungen und Einsichten so kurz angerissen werden, dass sie ihre emotionale Wirkung kaum entfalten. Spielerisch wird die Handlung zu selten einbezogen - meist kämpft man sich einfach zur nächsten Filmszene durch.

Nevertheless, Batman: Arkham City is a kick-ass title that does a lot of things right and will give you more than your money’s worth. If you don’t want to take a chance on the superior-but-problematic PC version, you might be tempted to rent it on a console. I would recommend against that, however, as you’ll definitely want to play the Catwoman parts, short as they may be (it's the free DLC that comes with new copies).

The result is that Arkham City is a brave game, trying new ideas while also staying fundamentally similar. There are weaknesses in the recipes that Rocksteady has created - we can't say we're personally won over by the open world approach - but a weakness isn't a failure and it can't be overlooked that Arkham City is still a very strong game.

Avec une réalisation toujours aussi spectaculaire, cette suite dévoile des décors aussi vastes que splendides, dans lesquels on ne se lasse pas de se perdre. S'il repose toujours sur cette formule violemment efficace alternant beat'em all percutant et infiltration délicieusement sadique, le gameplay prend une tout autre mesure dans ces décors ouverts. L'aventure centrale aurait certes pu profiter d'un scénario plus travaillé et moins conventionnel, mais le résultat reste vraiment plaisant notamment grâce à un casting démentiel - au sens propre comme au figuré. Missions secondaires, secrets à découvrir, Rocksteady n'a en plus pas lésiné sur le contenu du jeu, aussi étourdissant qu'un coup de Batarang. S'il reste quelques raisons de chipoter çà et là, Arkham City est incontestablement la suite dont on rêvait, riche et surprenante à bien des égards. Une véritable prouesse qui en fait un des titres incontournables de 2011.

Those of you without DX11 cards are sure to enjoy Arkham City, as you're still getting an attractive HD version of the console game, albeit one that doesn't look anything like the spiffy NVIDIA video above. For the rest of us packing serious DX11 hardware, it's going to take some patching or driver updates before Arkham City lives up to the amazing potential that we know it has, so we recommend holding off on your purchase until everything has been fixed.

Batman: Arkham City is what you get when a studio isn't trying and is content to rest on its laurels. Other than the half-hearted attempt at an open world setting, nothing stands out as being an improvement on the previous game and many things that Arkham Asylum did well were completely fumbled here. If you want a tight, immersive Batman experience (albeit with a goofy ending), just play the first game (again). However, if you don't really care about story, characterization, immersion, or even decent pacing, and you just want to beat up random thugs, have arbitrary boss battles and collect meaningless hidden green statues, this is the game for you.
