Batman : Arkham City gets perfect review score

1 min read


Later this month the sequel to Guinness World Records "Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever," Arkham City, gets released. We had some time with it at Gamescom – and if you got to rAge this weekend, you probably got to play it a bit as well. We think it’s fantastic – but we have odd taste.

The game’s first review has entered the wild, so what does Australia’s Official PlayStation Magazine think?

"Batman: Arkham City is not only the best superhero game ever made, it’s one of the best games ever made full-stop," gushes the magazine, as spotted by "It takes the already superlative original and gloriously expands on it. It’s a deeper game, more complex, more inventive, more mature. It brings the caped crusader’s world to life better than any comic, movie or television show before it."

In closing, the magazine opines “We can’t imagine how a superhero game could be better than this. Absolutely sublime.”

It looks like Rocksteady Studios might be set to break its own Guinness World Record. Arkham City will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 21. Unfortunately, the PC version’s release date has slipped to next month.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
