Arkham city is quite an acheivement for any Batman fans of both modern comic stories and animated films to Batman of old and current movies there are so many little touches and secrets to discover that just delight.
Gameplay it is all very similar to Arkham Asylum a nice blend of combat, stealth and travelling in Batman style with subtle improvements from before. The story starts with a bang a can be a bit overwhelming at 1st but things quickly and expertly take shape.
Aside from the main story plot there are several side missions involving characters from the Batman universe, unlike most games these dont feel like bolted on additional bits for the sake of making the game last longer but add genuine depth and value to the story and game. They are also enjoyable and not a bit tedious.
Returning from Arkham Asylum are the riddler challenges and trophies along with the inclusion of some hostage situations, these prove considerably more challenging this time around making full use of all your skills and gadgets to complete.
There is so much to discover that once you complete the game aside from side missions and riddler challenges so I implore you to take the opportunity to look online to see any easter eggs and in game secrets you missed, stay to the end of the credits for a hint of what may happen in the future.
Anybody buying the collectors edition will not be disappointed the statue is well made and the bonus content is great.
