Batman: Arkham City is Looking Tastily Dark

Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of the top games of last year, and perhaps the best use of the license yet. Now there's a sequel in the works and it's called Arkham City.

Found over on NeoGAF is a bunch of screenshots that tell us that the game is going to look absolutely fantastic if you're a big fan of the caped crusader.

    Not so bad! Somewhat camp, but dark camp!

    Boy Gotham sure does have a lot of buff bad guys. Every single guy looks like he walked out of a muscle contest.

    Probably the same engine and everything, just like having new stages. It was good but didn't have much in the replay value. Don't know if this one will be worth it.

    I really liked the first one, game mechanics are excelent, but imo it could have been better if it had a more open world feel. Would have been nice to be able to explore Gotham and what not... sort of like GTA.

    Two-face looks great
    Nice to see the outer world
    And nice to see the enemies will be having more models than the previous one

    Hopefully they don't make you use detective mode so much in this one.

    I hope they don't get overly ambitious. The thing that made the last game great was that they scoped it correctly. Yes, the game map was small by todays standard, but it also didn't suck. A lot of these "open world" games as of late have become rather monotonous. Half an hour of running past the same cookie cutter building really doesn't add anything for me except a longer commute time. And I get enough of that on my way to work thankyouverymuch.
