The Pixel Review writes: What Arkham City represents is a new level of art, unprecedented across all mediums. To take sound design, visual art and a narrative of this quality and combine it into a living breathing world that the player feels responsible for is nothing short of astounding. As you explore, you get the very real feeling that a well-written, heart wrenching tragedy is around every corner and you genuinely want to help the fictional characters of this game. The entirety of that statement could also be used to apply to the sidequests alone. Every facet of the game seems to be a result of a careful attention to detail by a team that refused to put anything subpar in their game.
