Batman:Arkham City – Gameplay footage

Arkham City

I’ve made no secret of the fact that Batman:Arkham Asylym was my game of 2009, so I’m expecting great things from Arkham City. So far everything I’ve seen has looked superb, more wonderful production design, a twisty turny plot, and the delicious Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman.

Now, finally we’ve got a video of ten minutes of gameplay to get our teeth into. In a way it seems to fall into the Joe Bob Briggs’ rule about sequels – if you’re gonna make a sequel make the exact same thing. I’m not being disparaging here though. Looks like the gameplay itself is very similar to the original game, including the excellent fast-flowing combat system. It’s nice to see that the cape gets a lot more action this time around and there’s greater scope with levels, now that Bats is working within the cityscape.

Also, no surprises, Catwoman’s costume, well, her cleavage is enough to keep the fanboys happy, while the rest of us wonder how she can be so acrobatic without her boobs falling out. It’s a minor niggle though, as long as they ensure she truly kicks arse through the storyline.

Final part of this year is going to be damn expensive, with a slew of hotly anticipated games being released. Right now though, this one is top of my list.

Batman: Arkham City will be released on PC, PS3 and XBox360 in the UK on October 21st
