Review: Batman: Arkham city




Presentation: This is the prequel to one of the most anticipated game of the year.But was it a good idea for DC to make such move?


Story: The story picks up one year after Arkham Asylum, where the new Mayor Quincy Sharp (former Arkham Warden) has closed down Arkham and instead instituted the titular Arkham City. An Escape From New York-esque prison system, inmates are free to roam about the "maximum security home" set within the heavy walls of a sectioned off piece of Gotham City real estate. Running the establishment is Dr. Hugo Strange, a character we've learned from the latest game trailer knows the identity of Batman.


Drawing: The drawing on this one is simply astonishing The way the characters are drawn is very accurate.




Verdict: This totally gives the story more depth. I give it a [8/10]. If you are planing to play the game and have a 15$ you can spare then go pick this up. BTW there is a LOT of commercials in the comic , but if you can get over them, please go and pick it up.




Stay tuned .Tomorrow I will make a big announcement that you will surely like.And sorry if the review is a bit rushed i wanted to time the announcement with the weekend .

If you say this will improve the gaming experience later, i will oblige and get the comic before playing Arkham City.

So would you know of a good way to price older comicbooks? My mother has a HUGE collection and we want to look into selling them.

I felt it was a litle bit weird; the drawings were really good, since the artist has a background in concept art, but somehow it didn't feel... comic-bookish, I don't know if I'm explaining myself. The narration, the way action has to flow through the page, it's not as good.

But that's something you learn after drawing comics for a while.

Well, I guess I'll have to read it now...

Is it worth checking out if we aren't looking at the game? I guess I'm just asking if it stands well on it's own. Nice blog, followed.

@A if you didn't play the first one and aren't planing to play the second one, there is no point in reading it.
