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 - Batman: Arkham City - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Additional notes

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.

Why so serious?

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.

Game features:

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.

New Story
Five-time Emmy-Award-winner Paul Dini returns to pen a brand-new story for Batman: Arkham City, taking gamers deep inside the diseased heart of Gotham.

Huge Cast of Characters
Players encounter numerous characters from the Batman universe, including Catwoman, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, Penguin, Hugo Strange, Victor Zsasz, Calendar Man, The Joker, The Riddler and other iconic characters yet to be revealed.

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.

Play as Catwoman
Catwoman is a fully playable character in Batman: Arkham City who has her own storyline in the main game which is seamlessly interwoven with Batman's story arc. Her navigation skills, combat moves and gadgetry have been specifically designed and animated to deliver a fully featured and unique experience.

New Gadgets
Batman has access to new gadgets such as the Cryptographic Sequencer V2 and Smoke Pellets, as well as new functionality for existing gadgets that expand the range of Batman's abilities without adding extra weight to his Utility Belt.

Featured Voice-Over Talent
Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy reprise their roles as The Joker and Batman respectively.

People on Batman Arkham City official forums say that changing graphics settings to low should help in passing the sword scene. Have you tried that? I can't comment myself, because I've finished the game only on a 360.this post has been modified by its author [2012-04-03 19:29:07]
