You heard me talk about Batman: Arkham City in this post. There’s a lot of buzz going around this game, theres lots of anticipation all over, considering how good the first part Arkham Asylum was.
The game developers have been slowly releasing bits of information on the game and its gonna look and play like, so this supplement will cover up some of that stuff. Here are some of the basics of Arkham City.
What is Batman: Arkham City?
Batman: Arkham City is the sequal to Batman: Arkham Asylum, based on the original comic book concepts and story line. The game is a third person blending hand-to-hand combat, puzzle solving and exploration. The game is backed by great graphics and great city to explore.
Unlike Arkham Asylum, where Batman was trapped in an asylum with criminals, away from the city he connects to so well with, Gotham City. In Arkham City, its not Batman trapped in an asylum, its the criminals that are trapped with Batman, in the city.
In Arkham Asylum, the game ended with the Asylum being destroyed, and its warden, Qunicy Sharp, who is now the mayor of Gotham City, has converted the city’s slum into a prison to house Arkham’s inmates. In the game, Arkham City is an open world, broken into districts, and each district is controlled by an enemy, or what you may call, a boss. and Batman is supposed to take control of the districts by killings their bosses.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.

- Talia al Ghul
- Hugo Strange

What is the gameplay like?
The core fundamentals of the gameplay remain pretty much the same, with the addition of new cooler gadgets and moves. Expect to use the Detective mode more often, since in this installment its an integral part of the game. Batman’s Cryptographic Sequencer has been upgraded, which pops up a small holographic panel in Batman’s arm. Pretty cool. Batman can then hack into signals around the city to see what the criminals are up to.
The story is said to be a lot darker. As if Arkham Asylum wasnt dark enough!
