Not only a spectacular follow up to its predecessor but Rocksteady raises the bar again for what we all should expect from a super hero game.
From using real deductive reasoning to solve riddles to perfectly timed critical hits that clobber you enemies, this game will keep you on your toes for hours on end and allow you to feel like the Dark Knight has indeed returned.
If you like Batman, you must play this, if you like a good TPS(third person shooter), play this, if you own a current gen consul you need to play Arkham City!… Expand

Broken party system, spotty mics, connection issues to games... and more. Getting stuck on 2" high obstacles or blow-up concrete that is sitting less than a foot off the ground is over kill as far as navigating a map, any real soldier wouldn't even have to see these obstacle they would just move right on be/over/around them, but we get to suffer the wraith of the 2" concrete slab that is in the open but cant seem to be walked over. Aircraft is a joke, moving through the air from an infantry perspective, jets look like they hover and fly in the wind like a lief in a breeze, controlling them is another thing altogether taking way to long to even get to the point of enjoyment.
This game could have been so good... could have been.
Sound is top notch all the weapons sound unique.… Expand

AtRight off the bat let me just say that I am stoked to be able to plug any of my real guitars that have a 1/4" adapter right into my PS3. At this point I have only spent 3 hours with Rocksmith but they have all been enjoyed. For someone like myself, an intermediate guitar player that has been in multiple bands that never really took off and in turn had to put down the guitar in order to make the bills and chase the mighty buck, Rocksmith is awesome!! There is an immediate since of accomplishment when playing a song that you have never heard or played before and you qualify first time through, of course the flip side to that coin is playing a song that you know and love but fall flat on your face the first time. I found myself being pushed to my limits as a player very quickly due to the dynamic difficulty. At times the dynamic difficulty would frustrate me, having destroyed a basic riff over and over the game increases is difficulty on the fly and all of the sudden I am forced to play new sections of the song at the same difficulty level completely caught of guard and being forced to learn "Rocksmiths's" way of telling to play a chord, hammer-on, slide, or any of the other techniques I am versed in, yet totally unaware of what these techniques look like as they are being displayed rolling down the fret board at break neck speeds do to my proficiency of power chords.
Novice players will have an easier learning curve IMO since difficulty will not ramp up so fast and throw new techniques at you before you have the chance to play some of Rocksmith recommendations, which will help you understand what these techniques look like before you have to interpret them at full speed.
All in all I am happy with my first 3 hours of play and Rocksmith will certainly be fun and entertaining enough for me to get back into a regular practice routine.… Expand
