Storyline

Two weeks following the events of Batman: Arkham City, several GCPD officers suddenly go missing. The culprit seems to be Harley Quinn, having escaped custody and undergone extreme mental stress following her recent loss. She has now taken over the industrial district of the old Arkham City site, which Batman infiltrates and ultimately gets himself captured so Robin will come to his rescue, and together, they can stop Harley and save the cops before the night is over. Written by Joe Kurr

Trivia

During one of the unlockable interview sessions between Hugo Strange and the Joker, Strange is attempting to deduce Joker's origins and his relationship to Batman. Joker proceeds to tell Strange about how he was a failed stand-up comedian who got mixed up with the mob and was, under the "Red Hood" disguise, forced to break into the Ace Chemicals plant, where he was also employed, which, in turn, led to his run-in with Batman and being dropped into the vat of chemicals that transformed him. Afterwards, Strange states that Joker is lying about the entire story, to which Joker replies "If you have to have an origin story, you're better off making it multiple choice". The story, and the quote, were both taken, almost directly, from Alan Moore's immensely popular graphic novel, "The Killing Joke". See more »

wow
5 November 2011 | by Thisguy622See all my reviews

The first time i played Batman Arkham Asylum i could not wait for the sequel. And after playing Batman Arkham City, i can safely say that it is the best superhero game ever. The plot is perfect, the scenery is perfect, the game play is perfect. You could tell that the creators improved on the detective aspect of the game massively. (Meaning that you don't have to spend as much time in detective mode.) The characters are well introduced and every character has a vital part to play in the plot. The voices for the characters were well suited (Mark Hamill giving another astounding performance as the joker.) But i have to say, the thing i loved most about the game was the additional things, the side missions were great and the Riddler trophies, though challenging, were fun to do. I recommend this game to anyone who either enjoys Batman or a quality game.
