Welcome To Arkham City: Population: 200 Inmates 50 Political Prisoners and 1 Bat

Arkham City. This game redefined the combat system, open world adventure and more. It's great. The game relays the message that perserverence is key. The game also says that fighting evil and tyranny is good. Batman is a good role model in this game. He perservers throughout the game. The game can be very violent. You punch, kick, batarang and interrogate foes throughout the game. You (Batman) also are on the verge of death the entire game. Several side quests also depict classic Batman character (Riddler, Zsasz, Deadshot, ect.) finding and killing targets in you fail the side mission. The game can also be scary. Several side missions are timed and, excuse my language, but you feel like crap if you fail. However, you can skip these missions. Just tell you kids never to pick up a ringing payphone (Zsasz) or talk to the person on the roof at the top of one of the Bowery buildings (Deadshot). The suggestive themes in this game are little but they are there. Harley Quinn, Posion Ivy and Catwoman show cleaveage. Also, an easter egg in the game shows a pregancy test showing positive by Harley Quinns outfit. The Penguin and Two-Face use the most colorful language such as "D*mn, H*ll, B*st*rd and *ss". Catwoman is refered to as a B*tch" throughout the game.This game has several Batman characters such as Two-Face, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Posion Ivy, Catwoman, Zsasz, Killer Croc, Clayface and of course, the infamous Joker. This gives a high comsumerism value. I even got out my old Batman toys and started playing with them. I'm fourteen! Last but not least, Penguin smokes a cigar and there are references to beer in the game. overall the game has slightly questionable thing in each catogory, but its a great game. I give this game a 9.5 out of 10. It's just that great. pause for fourteen though!

Good for kids

This is a great game. Good for kids because batman never kills people. Still it is pretty violent. (no gore at all).

The best superhero game out there

(Note: Armored Edition has no additional mature content not found in other versions of the game) Mature content in Batman Arkham City is similar to that found in a typical PG-13 superhero flick. Batman has fist fights with baddies but follows a strict no-kill rule. He will use blunt objects and his fists to knock them out cold. These fisticuffs never result in blood or death. Baddies will shoot batman and will occasionally kill secondary characters with guns but gunshots will not result in blood or visible wounds. There are no shocking or gruesome deaths in the game (unlike the ones found in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight movies). A serial killer threatens to cut up some cops, though batman stops him in time. Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn wear revealing clothes and the goons will occasionally chatter about them looking hot (using the word b---h occasionally), but these female characters never seem to flaunt their sexuality. There is also quite a bit of mild language (b-----d, a--, d--n, h--l). That's about it though. It's dark, but never over the top. It's definitely ok for anyone 13 and up, iffy for anyone 10 and up.

Excellent.

Batman Arkham City is a great game. I enjoyed it so much, I replayed it and beat it 3 times. There is swearing and violence in this game, so I would say you should know your kid before letting them play this game. (If they're 12 or under) The gameplay is very fun, and the combat system is excellent. It's definitely worth a try, and I'm really excited for the next game in the series, Batman Arkham Origins.
