Top 10 Games of 2011: #4 Batman Arkham City
Batman Arkham City doesn’t just let you play as Batman it lets you BE Batman.
From using his many gadgets, to taking on a dozen of thugs single handed, and going toe-to-toe with anyone you could think of from Batman’s rogue gallery, no other game before has let you step into the shoes of the Dark Knight quite like Arkham City.
The game also sports a story that can rival some of the best Batman stories printed on paper, the story is only strengthened by the performances of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill who return to reprise their roles from Batman: The Animated Series as Batman and Joker respectively.
Batman Arkham City isn’t just a good example of how to make a good superhero game, but it’s also a great example of how to make a great game in general and it more than deserves its spot on this list.
