It introduces Batman to James Gordon for the first time, with the latter being uncertain as to whether or not Batman is a criminal himself. Character playing options are limited for this game, since the gamer can only play as Batman. As an added challenge, the player’s movements are also limited, even more so than in Arkham Asylum, as there are only so many ways for them to make their way around Gotham City. The ultimate task is to track down and defeat The Joker before he destroys all of Gotham, using bombs that he has planted throughout the city.

Go ahead, try and name somebody crazier than The Joker, I’ll wait.

Batman doesn’t take holidays, at least, not until after he’s through cleaning up the streets.

However, once they’ve earned it, they will have the option of playing as The Joker in the side-challenges. Boss-fights in this game include face-offs with Bane and Scarecrow, just to name two, as well as the ultimate fight between Batman, and a Titan-enhanced Joker.

Clearly, The Joker’s been working out.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Get it done, Batman!

Lethal, beautiful, and in control, a very deadly combination.

1) Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City: Gameplay Walkthrough

Relax, Gotham City, Batman’s got this one covered.

Batman: Arkham City is an action and adventure game that serves as a direct sequel to Arkham Asylum. This time, The Joker infects Batman with his own poisoned blood. Worst yet, The Joker reveals that he has distributed his bad blood throughout Gotham City. Now Batman must find a cure for himself and the people of Gotham, before it’s too late. In addition, Batman must solve the mystery of Protocol: 10, a secret plan that the villainous Dr. Hugo Strange has put into motion. The player gets a little more breathing room with Batman’s basic movements. There are more ways to get around, as the game provides a much broader terrain to explore and investigate than the more confined Arkham Asylum. The character play is more widespread this time, allowing the gamer to play as characters other than The Batman. The player even gets the added privilege of playing as Catwoman in her own side-missions.

The Joker just wanted to share a part of himself with his old foe. What’s wrong with that?

If this guy were my psychiatrist, I would immediately switch doctors.
