It features a main plot and side-missions that develop their own sub-plots. The main storyline revolves around Batman's imprisonment in Arkham City, a sprawling new super-prison five times bigger than the original asylum and enclosing a wide variety of industrial districts, iconic locations and Gotham City landmarks. He must now stop mishaps occurring around this chaotic enclosure caused by Gotham's most notorious super criminals. The game has received universal critical acclaim, making it one of the highest rated video games released in 2011.Worldwide, the game sold 2 million units in its first week of approximately 4.6 million shipped units, compared to Arkham Asylum which sold 4.3 million units in its entire release. This made Arkham City one of the fastest selling games ever.

If you like video games and/or you like comics or action figures or a great story, or have a pulse; do yourself a favor, at the very least rent this game. It can finally be said after years of complaints from gamers and comic book readers alike that a game has been made worthy of the character being used. Now granted I was content with X-Men Legends and Ultimate Alliance from Marvel, but face it, it was like playing with tiny army men. This game hits the mark on cinematics, story, voice actors and graphics. Weeks later, releases of "skins" of Batman costumes have been released, amazing soundtracks both vocal and score, ringtones of the "game over wavs" are zooming flooding the internet. Alternative playable characters and a huge selection of villain in Bat's gallery are there.
