Batman Arkham City - Preview
Batman Arkham City is the sequel to the number 1 rated game of the year: Batman Arkham Asylum.
The story of Arkham City takes place 1 year after Arkham Asylum. Quincy Sharp has taken credit for stopping Joker and has made himself mayor of Gotham. Since the prison and the asylum are not in functioning condition he has bought out a part of Gotham city to house the thugs. Hugo Strange a psychiatrist is given the opportunity to oversee the city but seems to have his own agenda. Batman as usual is worried about the city’s situation getting out of hand.
The release of Batman Arkham City is dark, quite similar to the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. The game carries all of the darkness and action associated with the original Batman franchise.
Arkham City will feature the same style of action adventure game play as its predecessor. The gamer will be able to play both Catwoman and Batman. Catwoman will have a more acrobatic style of game play while Batman’s fighting techniques will remain as in Batman Arkham Asylum.
I have been looking forward to this game for a very long time. Both Batman Arkham City and Batman Arkham Asylum provide die-hard fans with a fresh outlook on the Batman series.
