Batman: Arkham City is a really good third-person perspective video game. It is quite heavy on violence, as you engage in hand-to-hand combat with thugs. You can combine attacks and gadgets and do special combo moves (many of which are quite brutal, including breaking arms and legs). In some of the moves, you can briefly use thugs' weapons against them. You can also get stabbed, punched, and hit with pipes and baseball bats. However, there is no blood during these scenes, though you can see some blood from gunshots during cutscenes. During predator encounters, you take out enemies with guns, and they can shoot you (though no blood is seen).The language is also a concern, as there are repetitive uses of sh*t, a*s, b*tch, d*mn, h*ll, though no f*ck, and Batman only swears once (d*mn). The female characters (Catwoman, Talia al Ghul, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy) all dress very suggestively in very tight and revealing outfits showing lots of cleavage (and in Harley's case the top of a bra). There is some sexual innuendo (some of the female characters flirt with Batman and there is reference made to "feeling like yourself") and, some of the thugs and villains comment that Catwoman is very attractive, and there is one mention of pornography (though this is not in a cutscene and can easily be avoided). There are also a few references to tobacco and cigarettes. In one scene, Batman is drugged with a halocinogen. Overall, it is an amazing game for mature tweens and teens.
