Review 1 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
What Can I Say, I'm Speechless (sort of) !
Location: Detroit, MI
This fall the dark knight returns, and I sure cant wait! All ready pre ordered the collectors edition and have to say it's a good deal for what you get for 100 dollars. And people out there complaining about the disc being in a pouch stop complaining. Most of the time the disc will be siting in your xbox because you wont be able to stop playing it. Arkham asylum was fantastic all around and every aspect of the game literally made you feel like you were in batman's shoes having to do detective work, beat up badies, or even have to get those pesky riddler trophies to make him shush up. I just couldn't take my eyes off it and I ended up beating it four times! Now that Arkham city improves apon everything graphics, new improved melee system, improved challenge mode, and improved boss battles it will for surely replace my old love of Arkham asylum. One last thing too is that I agree with Tejay666 that best buy does offer a better pre order deal then gamestop. Best buy gives you robin whos playable in all challenges or a carnival map, idk Id say id pick robin! However I still support gamestop and they are my #1 store I shop for games.
Review 3 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
Too great for words
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
I was thinking of a great title for this review, but then I just couldn't think of one, so I think this fits the bill. The collector's edition stuff and DLC that you get are AWESOME, and then you get to the game itself. This game is worth WAY more than $60. The story is unbelievable, mesmerizing, epic, and then all the extra content is just plain fun. To quote the great Ra's Al Ghul (Liam Neeson) "scrambling over the rooftops of Gotham" is the most fun thing you can possibly do in a video game created this year. It may not sound all that exciting, but trust me, it is! Gliding over Arkham City undetected, and then swooping in for the KO is super fun and satisfying. This game is the best game ever, and you need a copy of it RIGHT NOW! You'll spend hours and hours having fun being Batman. You feel like Batman way more than Arkham Asylum, and that is a great feeling.

Arkham City pre-order gift
This game is probably going to be the best superhero game ever made! I am an obsessive Batman fan and i've pre-ordered the game months ago. But... i'm afraid i'm going to have to cancel my pre-order from Game Stop. They are only offering one map with pre-order. Best Buy on the other hand is offering Robin (Tim Drake) with Red Robin alternate skin as a playable character in the challenge modes AND 2 maps. Im not boycotting Game Stop at all. They are still (and always will be) my #1 store for game shopping. Best Buy's pre-order gift is more appealing...

Review 7 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
GAME OF THE YEAR 2011
I know I change my mind all the time, but I will NOT change my mind right now. Batman arkham city will be one of the best superhero games ever, and it should get game of the year 2011. I don't care what anyone else says or thinks.I don't care about any other games that come out this year, this is the only game I am getting for the rest of this year. I have the collector's edition pre-ordered, the best version. It is worth the 109 dollars by 1 million times. Get this version if possible. I owe 39 dollars for this, and 28 dollars for the limited edition strategy guide. Hurry, because these are extremely limited. I loved batman arkham asylum, and I can't wait for this.
Review 10 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
YES YES YES YES!!!!
It was getting so close to the release date that I thought this wouldn't be announced! I am typing this the day this was put on the site so I don't know what it will include but I am so psyched now! I have to cancel my reservation of Batman: Arkham City and put it on this! The Collector's Edition!!! This will be the absolute best Superhero game to date, and probably one of the best Action games to date also! And then next year I will get the inevitable GOTY edition! Arkham City will be my #1 game of 2011 beating out COD: MW3, BF3, AC:R, Spiderman Edge of Time, and Halo CE Anniversary!

Review 12 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
What about the DLC?
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Am I the only one who has realized that in the GameStop Bonus for the collector's edition, they do not include the "•Joker's Carnival Challenge Map" that is included with the original edition? My question is, for 100 dollars, do I also get acces to this content?

I noticed that too, what gives? Pay 40 bucks more and no Gamestop bonus? I figured I'd just call my local store and ask them myself

Although it isn't listed on the website, the GameStop exclusive DLC is available with the pre-order of any Batman: Arkham City edition. Just go in to any GameStop store and ask.

COOL BATMAN GAME EVER !
this game looks amazing.Buy the first one then the second to really understand the story.
Review 16 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
This is probably the coolest thing that I would buy currently. Who cares about MW3, BF3, Skyrim, Revelations, or any other game! Batman: Arkham City baby! Collector's Edition stuff is hard to pass up. Btw never mind about not caring about the other games. But Arkham City is still #1!
Review 19 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
I played Arkham Asylum and thought it was awesome ! I can't wait to get Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition, but will this include Joker's Carnival Challenge Map ? I don't see it here, cmon its the collectors edition...
Review 20 for Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition
BEST VIDEO GAME EVER !!!!!!!
This is the best video game so far !!! I absolutely love this game. It is so addicting, awesome, and fun ! The graphics are some of the best I have ever seen, they are so detailed and cool. They are one of the things that immerse you into the game. The combat is fluid and fun, and very fast. The stealth parts are awesome and really make you feel like a stealthy predator. Catwoman is an amazing character, she is completely different from batman. They both have their own moves and attacks, gadgets, way of moving around arkham city, etc etc. The game is harder than arkham asylum, but that is part of what it makes it fun. It gives you a challenge, and the challenge is actually fun. There are tons of riddler stuff, 12 side missions, respawning bad guys, freeroaming, upgrades and gadgets to buy, A.R. training to complete, challenge maps to play, new game plus mode, etc etc. So this game has an immense amount of replay value. You will never get bored with this game. Now, on to the collector's edition. The artbook is pretty cool, but I would recommend buying a case/holder or whatever for the game. The dark knight returns skin and penguin's iceberg lounge challenge map are awesome. The statue is highly detailed and really really cool. The gotham knight movie and digital album are also great extras. Anyway, GET THIS GAME BEFORE ANYTHING, EVEN SKYRIM OR SOMETHING. You will never forgive yourself for a really really long time if you don't get this game. Try to get the collector's edition if you can, it is even better.
