Goofs

After infecting Batman with his poisonous blood, Joker says he had also shipped some all over Gotham, possibly infecting even more people. By the game's end, Batman manages to cure himself, but it is never mentioned if the other people in Gotham managed to be cured as well. It is implied, however that the cure likely will be sent out to the other infected by way of mass producing the cure which is now within Batman's bloodstream. See more »

Quotes

Batman: It was all a lie. There's nothing wrong with you.
The Joker: Nice of you to say, but you of all people should know...

Batman Arkham City
19 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first thing that struck me about Arkham City was the vast detail put into the city. I couldn't help but spin the camera angle around Batman a few times before finally starting out my first mission.This was only a fraction of what took my breath away in this game. You really do feel like you're playing as Batman. Everybody says that, but it's true. Whether its taking on 20 thugs at once in an all-out brawl or picking off armed thugs one at a time, you get that great adrenaline rush that Batman would almost sure have too. The side missions add extra depth and variety. My favorite would probably have to be the Riddler mission, as you pretty have to pretty much play through the whole game to finally take him down. The actual riddles themselves that you have to solve around the city open up these great background stories that explain every last criminal and their stories to you. Aside from the great game-play, the story kept me on the edge too. Will Batman stop Hugo Strange and his plans for Arkham City? I wont tell, but I will say that the ending of the story left me speechless. I highly recommend playing Arkham City. There's a twist around every corner, some great side missions, and the replay value is high. I've replayed it about three times now and have still yet to master it.
