If all of these reviews are to be believed, anyone anticipating Batman: Arkham City can rest knowing that they'll be getting a brilliant experience. If you enjoyed Batman: Arkham Asylum, it's safe to say you're going to love this.
I can not wait.
Honestly had no plans of picking this up because so many other games coming out in the coming weeks but I guess I'm going to have to now after seeing all the reviews for it. It really does look amazing.
I think so far this game and Portal 2 are the main contenders for GOTY
You could always buy the game used from Gamestop to make sure you like it. And if you don't, just return it within 7 days :)
Am glad that the most badass superhero is getting a proper video game franchise. Scratch that! It is more than proper!!! Arkham city is now 95 on metacritic!!!!
best Article Title EVER!
Game of the year for me.
Agreed. Arkham Asylum was my GOTY 2009 and Arkham City will be it this year.
so you didnt play uncharted 2?
Now just imagine Uncharted 3...
I can already smell the perfect 10s and gotys... and haters tears!
Yes, we're all crying over review scores and "GOTYs"...two aspects of this industry that are ignored by the majority of gamers.
Although I am looking forward to UC3 more, I am still getting Batman:AC.... The game looks phenomenal and I also want to support Rocksteady... I am tired of FPSes, so no BF3 or COD this time... Fall is gonna be consumed by 3 games for me... UC3, Batman and Skyrim. Don't care which gets GOTY, all look awesome.
some people are going to hate on UC3 because it uses the same gameplay formula as UC2 you know that right ? that's what a number of reviewers did to gears 3 even though the gears gameplay formula was always very good and didn't need change.
its batman when isnt he badass lol
that old live action tv show he was not badass, just hilarious lol. ahhh memories
Hes only badass in these games and the dark knight. Other than that hes been a fairy in black panties.
obviously you have not read any batman comics at all if your saying that he's not badass in them
I'm not sure about GOTY, I mean it has some serious competition with Portal 2, Uncharted 3, and Battlefield 3, not to mention we all know how the media is about Modern Warfare and Activision. I'm glad that my favourite childhood hero is having great success both in the film and gaming industry.
I've been checking out gameplay footage on YouTube and it's making the wait even harder !
I'm confused about one thing. The PS3 version is almost 3 points higher. Because those 3 points could be pretty significant. Usually multiplat games differ in a range of about 1-2 but not more unless there's difference in the games..
That's because its not an even number of each version reviewed yet. This will be GOTY.
It has half the reviews the 360 has.
10 vs 29 reviews.... they will most likely be the same by the end. This looks like it will be hard to beat, btw.
There are a lot more sites that have rated the 360 version such as 360 publications and websites. At one time I checked and there were 10 reviews in for PS3 vs 24 for the 360, thus pulling the score down a bit.
PS3 version - 98/100 360 version - 95/100 NUFF SAID. Links http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
the score is actually 95 as both 360 and ps3 versions are the same. You should also take into account the 360 version reviews are 3x that of the ps3's but that does not matter.
10 PS3 reviews vs 29 360 reviews? Lmao, your links mean nothing (not that they would anyway).
Based on that trend, the PC version should be over 100. Wee hee hee hee.
Yeah, good one.
10 reviews vs 29 reviews. More needed to be said apparently
It's cute how you fight for second place like that.
WHO CARES? All gaming platforms can enjoy this masterpiece. This is a win for all of us. Why must you compare the console counterparts? I feel sorry for you
Please point me to the reviews that gave the 360 version a lower score than the PS3 version, narutogameking.
their is none as both games are the same, it does not matter which version it was reviewed on as the 360 scores reflects on the ps3 also.
does it matter? No! the game is awesome anyway. It doesn't matter if you play it on Ps3,Xbox 360 or PC. hell It's even going to be available on WiiU.
95 to 96... nuff said. They will probably be the same by the end.
Looks like I will invest in 3 open world games this year. 1. Dark souls 2. Skyrim 3. Arkham city XperiaRay
Your list makes me RAGE.
RAGE is mediocre compared to those titles. And after Carmacks screw up with the PS3 version I won't even buy it used. Borderlands 2 should be much better. XperiaRay
I'll match your 3 and raise a Saints Row 3.
Well it's Gameinformer's first 10/10 for 2011.. it's bound to be good. Can't wait for Tuesday.
I want to see Rocksteady take on Spiderman once they're done.
Except they most likely will never work on a Marvel based game. They are partly owned by Warner Bros. who owns DC. I however would like to see them work on a Superman game next actually. I think they could make a great one for him since they were able to with Batman as well.
A Superman game just wouldn't work.
I agree. Playing as Superman would be like having all the cheats on! haha
They should do a teenage superman...where he's learning his abilities and what not. Also make it a little darker than the normal superman backstory.
