Batman: Return To Arkham
Batman: Return To Arkham
This product is a USED item which may not include any additional material like Digital Copies, Online Passes or promotional downloadable content (DLC).
Remastered by Virtuos, this package brings together the first two Batman: Arkham titles including all Game of the Year edition bonus and downloadable content, complete with improved graphic and upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects and shaders. In Arkham Asylum Batman's taken The Joker to the madhouse (again) but (shock!) the villain's got loose. He's also set a bunch of other assorted sociopaths from the Dark Knight's rogues gallery loose. It turns out, however, that the aim isn't just general chaos, oh no. The Joker, for all his crazy tendencies, has a plan. The Joker didn't get to be the arch-nemesis of one of the world's finest superheroes by just being a bit whacko... Gameplay starts with Rocksteady's 'FreeFlow' combat. Rather than stringing together overly complex moves, it's about getting the rhythm right - being sure to counter enemy blows then moving smoothly into an attack, stringing together as many moves as possible to maximise your XP. Stopping this from being a straightforward brawler, however, is a hefty stealth component. Batman's many things, but not one of those things is bulletproof. This makes sneaking around and taking out enemies one by one a necessity where guns are involved. Arkham City picks up the story. Since the events of the last game, Mayor Quincy Sharp has bought up a massive chunk of real estate, walled it off and shoved all the inmates of Arkham Asylum and Blackgate prison in there to do as they will. With Hugo Strange in charge of this little slice of dystopia, however, you can take it as a given that this new chapter in Arkham's history is not going to be a happy one for Gotham. The biggest addition to the game is in the scale. The playable area is five times the size of that in Arkham Asylum. While large sections of the game still take place inside Gotham's creepy gothic buildings, there's also more of an open-world feel as you navigate Arkham City. Another notable change is the inclusion of Catwoman as a playable character. Players can follow her parallel storyline as the game cuts between her and Batman. She comes complete with her own set of moves and her own missions and challenges. Things are getting worse and Gotham needs a hero. Time to take on the mantle of the bat!
