The Video Game Critic
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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ou la redondance de certains modes de jeu mais au final, cela n'a aucune 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, 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.

Rocksteady bewijst dat het succes van Arkham Asylum allesbehalve een toevalstreffer was. We zijn erg benieuwd wat er na een deugddoende vakantie op hun planning staat. Absolute topper!

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.

Batman: Arkham City is one of the deepest and richest gaming experiences of 2012. I am not sure I would go so far as it the greatest super hero game of all time, but it is sure damn close. Fantastic visuals, immersive storyline, and the highly engaging gameplay make for a game Xbox 360 owners should strongly consider purchasing – right now.

Calm Down Tom
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…
