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 »

Batman Arkham City Is The Best Game out There
9 February 2012 | by (Milwakie Oregon) – See all my reviews

Rocksteady has always given us a dark perspective of The Dark Knight. And as always their first Batman Arkham Asylum video game which i played was just amazing. Not only can you fight criminals or throw batarangs at them. But also in this game you get to interrogate them for information. But Rocksteady did a good job on this again in bringing it back.

If you are a fan of Batman Arkham Asylum which is the first game that i played and enjoyed forever, Then you are definitely going to love Batman Arkham City. This game in all it's glory is fun, Intreasting, And really dark like the first game was. And this game combines more intense action and a whole brand new story as you fight The Joker's henchmen and more in this game.

Criminals have escaped Blackgate Prison and now they are on the loose. The citizens of Gotham City are terrifed and there is only one man who can bring them all down which is The Dark Knight. Batman must work on his own to help the innocent citizens and must bring down this new threat once and for all.

There is a lot that Rocksteady Studios brought back to this new game. Like for example. The story was very good and at times was fast paced so that it moved along with the game. And as you progress the story moves along because recently it's all part of the game. In the first game, The story was the same and moved along pretty well. But in this game it continues to move along when you are doing a side mission or exploring no matter what you are doing.

Also you get side missions and you also have to collect The Riddler trophies in each level. Of course being that, The trophies have achievements and your goal is to collect them all in order to surprise The Riddler himself and stop him. But mostly if you collect all the trophies required in each level. Then you get to go to the bonus level with Riddler included in it. How fun is that! Also this game has great new free flowing combat that Batman can use and can attack his enemies more faster. Sometimes you can use weapons and gadgets to sometimes dodge an attack and you will have to stop the enemies that are after you. Plus Batman can kick, Punch, Or take down an enemy with one attack. This is what you should do in the game if there is more then one enemy after you and you must stun them. Plus Robin and Catwoman and Nightwing can do the same attacks as well if you do it correctly in order to block their attacks.

But this game does have playable characters. There is Catwomen, Nightwing, Robin, And of course the caped crusader Batman, You can easily play as one of them and as you navigate your character through certain levels. You are sure to have a fun time in beating the enemies or attacking them. But mostly what you can also do is you can beat your enemy and take them down with one attack and that's how it works well.

There are certain boss fights here. But you get a lot since this game does have so many. You have to fight Solomon Grundy and must take him down. And then when the Penguin comes after you. Then you must also avoid his attacks and take him down. But also the same with Ras Al Ghul and of course Clayface. Each boss fight will be difficult so it will be harder to beat them in time.

Also this game does have new enemies including Harley Quinn, The Joker, The Penguin, Mr Freeze, Clayface, And of course Solomon Grundy. This game introduces you to many new enemies that you have not seen before and really i gotta say. This is just amazing since we never saw them before for quite a while.

Also this game does have amazing voice talents and voicing. Mark Hamill voices The Joker very nicely and who can expect this. Mark Hamill is just amazing at his voicing as The Joker in the game and it just makes him more creepy. Also Nolan North as The Penguin is just awesome. He does a great job voicing The Penguin and his talent is awesome. And also more.

Also the graphics and also they look more realistic. And also the characters look good here too as well.

A great game by Rocksteady. You should get this, The best game of 2011 ever.
