BATMAN ARKHAM CITY LOCKDOWN is a gritty action game that pits you against various supervillains and their unending armies of thugs. You fight bad guys using a series of swipes and taps, somewhat similar to Infinity Blade, but with a little less variety. As you complete levels, you get WayneTech points, which can be spent to upgrade Batman or purchase equipment which helps him in his fights. There are also additional "skins" that can be purchased to play as Batman from various other series.

The game is pretty impressive visually and the controls are fluid; however, it starts to feel quite repetitive. Both Batman and the thugs have a limited repertoire of moves, and the bosses fall into patterns that can be easily learned. It's fun to play through the different bosses, but may not be worth the high price of entry.
