Final Trailer for BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY

     October 14, 2011


I’m counting down the hours until Batman: Arkham City is released (as of this posting, it’s 84).  I’ve been anticipating the game since the moment I finished Batman: Arkham Asylum, and judging by the reviews (which I take with a grain of salt, although I’d like to believe them) it’s been worth the wait.  We’ve received trailers for almost every major villain in the game, but with the game only days away, a final trailer has gone online and it’s the best one yet.  The teaser trailer focused on Dr. Hugo Strange, the man ostensibly in charge of the entire prison district although various street gangs vie for control.  We’ve now come back to the bad doctor and his continued fascination with the Dark Knight.  Everything is on display here, from the action to the gadgets to the landscape and hopefully to the quality story (the one aspect that has caused me serious concern despite Paul Dini’s involvement).  I’ve had high expectations for Arkham City from day one and these trailers have only served to make them higher to the point where they may be unreachable.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Batman: Arkham City hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 18th.

    Here’s another review to add to your collection:

    “Batman: Arkham Asylum was the greatest superhero game of all time. The sequel, Batman: Arkham City, is five times bigger and about a billion times better. You do the math.”

    It LOOKS great, but the writing is awful.

    Holy. Shit.

    And call me crazy, but was that “The Batman” (2000s animated series) version of the Joker, all big and barefoot??

    Slapped down cash for this months ago at Gamestop… bring it.

    It’s interesting how the Batman franchise is being handled so well in movies, games and animated features.

    Could you imagine if other comic book properties fell in line?

    We know movie adaption games are horseshit. These spin-off, standalone games have the freedom and creative talent to really do something great.

    Best Batman Story to be told!

    Cannot wait. I’ve been marathon viewing all the Batman flicks in anticipation and I’ve come to recognize Batman Forever as… pretty good in retrospect. Worth revisiting if you’ve not seen it in a while. Schumacher has definitely done more good than ill, in fact he’s got a flick coming out today. Trepass, looks worthwhile. Check it.

    Why would you take the reviews with a grain of salt? Oh wait, you’re Matt Goldberg.
