Back in August of 2009 Batman Arkham Asylum took many people by surprise with it’s excellent graphics, addicting gameplay, and impressive story. Now in 2011 the sequel, Batman Arkham City is pushing those boundaries to new limits. In the first review from the Official Playstation Magazine (OPM) Batman Arkham City has received the highest achievable rating according to thegx.net’s website.
OPM wrote things like:
“Presentation: Endlessly creative, perfectly moody, and technically flawless. This is Epic’s Unreal engine pushed to its absolute limit“
“Replay Value: Immense. A massive main quest, dozens of side missions, Riddler challenges, secondary game modes, and DLC will keep most people occupied for months“
Personally I think Arkham City has the potential to take the crown, but with games like Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, and Skyrim it is going to be pretty tough for our Dark Knight. Only time will tell. To see the full review make sure to pick up the new OPM.
