OXM 9/10: "A different Arkham, but excellent all the same".

Destructoid 8.5/10: "When it's all said and done, you'll be begging for more, but not because there wasn't enough. It is just too damn fun to be The Bat".

Metro 9/10: "Not just the best superhero game, but one of the greatest action adventures ever made - set in an expansive and engrossing virtual world unlike any other".

IGN 9.5: "Batman: Arkham City isn't just better than Batman: Arkham Asylum, it's better than most games on the market".

Giant Bomb 5/5: "Gaming's greatest melee combat system gets even better with a few key improvements, while the rest of Arkham City gives the existing Batman formula some extra size and scope to keep things interesting".

Telegraph 5/5: "Huge, dark and fearsomely satisfying, Batman Arkham City is a magnificently constructed second outing for Rocksteady's unique vision of the Dark Knight".

Joystiq 4.5/5: "Rocksteady has made the greatest Batman game ever crafted, and they've done that before. But breathing life into a staggeringly beautiful world; one which hums not only with opportunity, but ambition? That's a new trick altogether".

G4TV 5/5: "Batman: Arkham City is one of the greatest games ever made. Period".

Eurogamer 9/10: "First they gave us a hero; now they've given us his ideal playground. And along the way, they crossed off one of the trickiest entries on my own personal to-do list: an entry that's right there in between Meet Ty Pennington and Finish that Robert Musil book. Become Batman. Done".

Videogamer 10/10: "Dizzyingly extensive and lovingly detailed, Rocksteady has created an intricate, spirited and unequalled playground worthy of one of the most iconic characters in modern fiction".

GamesRadar 10/10: "Batman: Arkham Asylum was the greatest superhero game of all time. The sequel, Batman: Arkham City, is five times bigger and about a billion times better. You do the math".
