This guide to Batman: Arkham City contains a very thorough walkthrough of the main story mode of the game. Most importantly, you can find precise instructions regarding completing missions, reaching important locations and safely moving through them and what gadgets you will need to complete the puzzles prepared by the creators. A considerable portion of the guide has been dedicated to the issue of effective elimination of enemies. Descriptions of the main fights include hints on efficient methods of taking care of your opponents, including the elite types. In case of the more stealthy missions, a big part of the description refers to the rooms and how to safely get through them. The guide of course also contains very detailed descriptions of boss battles which can get pretty complicated in the later part of the game. The whole is aided by a big number of screens, helpful in navigating through Arkham City.
The guide contains the following colour symbols:
Red refers mainly to characters appearing throughout the game, regardless of whether they're friendly or hostile towards you. Additionally this colour informs of enemy flying machines and proximity mines that you might come across occasionally.
Blue refers to locations visited by Batman, both main buildings in Arkham City (like the museum) and single rooms (e.g. the torture chamber).
Green refers to items found or received during the game, mainly new gadgets and items connected with the story.
Orange refers to special moves and skill of Batman (e.g. the Inverted Takedown), as well as his gadgets (e.g. the Cryptographic Sequencer). In the latter case, a proper symbol appears each time you have choose a given gadget from your inventory.

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security "home" for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.
Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
Become the Dark Knight
Batman: Arkham City delivers a genuinely authentic Batman experience with advanced, compelling gameplay on every level: high-impact street brawls, nail-biting stealth, multifaceted forensic investigation, epic super-villain encounters and unexpected glimpses into Batman's tortured psychology.
Advanced FreeFlow Combat
Batman faces highly coordinated, simultaneous attacks from every direction as Arkham's gangs bring heavy weapons and all-new AI to the fight, but Batman steps it up with twice the number of combat animations and double the range of attacks, counters and takedowns.

Arkham Has Moved
Following the closure of Arkham Asylum and Blackgate prison, Gotham's new mayor, Quincy Sharp ordered the relocation of all inmates to Arkham City - a sprawling new super-prison five times bigger than Arkham Island, enclosing a wide variety of industrial districts, iconic locations and Gotham landmarks.
