Kevin Jones writes: "Batman: Arkham City is without a doubt a splendid video game. It of course is not without its faults, but it does add that special something to the franchise. The storyline isn’t exactly top of the line, but seeing the Dark Knight patrol a city makes up for it. It is a fantastic start to what could lead to a real open-world game in Gotham city. Arkham City receives a B+ from Half-Ass Gaming, and much respect goes out to Rocksteady for what they’ve done with Batman."
