Awesome!

Can't wait!

Though part of me still wish they'd do a "Batman: Gotham City" instead of this "Arkham City" idea.. seems like such a silly take to bring back elements from the earlier successful game AND the IP name (Arkham serving as a recognizable brand for the mainstream audience)

I'd imagine that you'll get your wish in the next one. I can't imagine they went with Arkham City by accident. A transition of Arkham Asylum -> Arkham City -> Gotham City just seems too obvious.

Now that I've actually been playing the game for a quite a while...yeah! I could really see it!

Let's hope so! :)

These Gamespot style video reviews disappoint because it's just a produced and edited monologue. I'd like to see the quicklook combined into a review so it would lead to a meaningful conversation.

I can't wait to play this video game!

Posted by Chetyre

Can't believe I still have to wait a month for the pc version...

Posted by Honk

Update, it is awesome!

I didn't enjoy Arkham Asylum, so I guess he's saying I won't like Arkham City either.

Edited by Branthog

Damn, the story sounds really idiotic. Are most comic book stories this dumb?

Also, I hope there's no more Poison Ivy boss fight, here. I really disliked that in the first one.

Hey the video is too big if you try to view it from clicking read the review page.

Posted by Mars_Cleric

I managed to get a copy yesterday, which is weird coz i'm pretty sure it actually comes out tomorrow

asdnmsandasdjklk want this can't wait until tomorrow

Posted by DjCmeP

I was going to buy this later but I kinda want it NOW!

Posted by Tally_Pants

So yeah. Pretty stoked for this game! I might have to put Dark Souls on hold.. or I might actually wait and finish dark souls then play through this...The choices!!

Posted by Thiromar

Neither of the games in this series have appealed to me...despite really enjoying everything else Batman!

I was wearing my GLHB shirt while watching this, made me laugh. Glad to see another Video Review. These videos are a rare treat. High praise for this is most welcome. Looking forward to more Batman.

Posted by FormulaDeuce

GLHB indeed! Love video reviews and hope to see more from the other up coming big releases this year.

Posted by Jonnyflash80

Awesome review Jeff. I want more Batman.

Glad to see this game looks awesome. Definite must buy!

Posted by pointdablame

This is one of my most anticipated games of the year, so I'm really happy to see this review. "if you want more batman..." Well yes... Yes I do.

Posted by GenesisZ

Dead Island ad made me sick of that game. Bring on batman!

Posted by PompousDawson

5-10 minute video reviews are great. Jeff doing video reviews even greater.

Posted by SomeJerk

Fact:
WB have the PC release of this scheduled for smack dab in the middle of the biggest November title launches
 
Prediction:
WB will blame PC piracy for pool sales
 
Derail:
Necessary to show how the industry, Ubisoft included, seem to purposely delay and screw with PC versions of games in order to justify screwing that market over

Posted by G0rd0nFr33m4n

I look forward to playing this game, I love batman and the rest of the character designs. The fact that it has a bit of new but is mostly the same is a good thing since I was enamored with the first one.

Posted by jollyroger187

happy to see a video review again ,the last one was 5 months ago.

Posted by Majkiboy

Good luck have Batman! Awesome ending, made me laugh :D

Posted by MadLaughter

Awesome video review, laughed out loud at the ending.

@Freedomequalsabuckofive: Yeah it was Eidos first. I want to say WB picked up Rocksteady a little after Arkham Asylum came out.

Actually, the first game was published by both Eidos and WB. This one is being published by WB and Square Enix, the company that bought Eidos.

@Metal_Mills:Damn must mean you don't live in the US.It's a months difference?That's pretty brutal usually it's a week apart.

It was delayed everywhere on PC.

Dissapointed in the lack of Russian Martian Batman skin DLC.

Glad to see a video review. You guys have been slacking with them lately! I really enjoy them!

Posted by Toxin066

Would have been cool, but ya know, I already read the text review.

Posted by thebigJ_A

Isn't the catwoman stuff only if you buy new? Crap. Guess I won't be finishing the riddler stuff when the game comes from gamefly. That stinks. I like the riddler stuff last time, and I heard you actually get to meet him if you compete all of it this time.

Still not enough to get me to buy this. Too many other games to buy/have been bought this year. (Dark Souls, hell yeah!)

Posted by StefanTheLegend

A video-review! Omg FINALLY...I must be dreaming! Hope they do more of these :)

Posted by trayntastic

i want more batman

Posted by coakroach

Good luck, have Batman.

Edited by BitterAlmond

Great to see video reviews return to Giant Bomb! I've missed these.

Also, Jeff's lost weight! Lookin' good, duder.
