I actually choose Asylum.
It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

City for me.

I missed the Scarecrow, but besides that City was an improvement in every way possible.

Asylum is amazing too though.

They both bored me to tears.

But I can understand why some find them appealing, as the production value is extremely high.
But I did not find them to my liking (tastes).

I go back and forth on this all the time. Where I am right now is that, while City improved on some things and is better in some ways, the Asylum felt more realized than anyplace in AC. And that the open world did little to enhance the gameplay, as the best parts of the game were the smaller interiors anyway.
Go there now! Or don't. Whatever man.

I feel like Arkham City improved on almost everything. I prefer Asylum's story.

I had a better time playing Asylum for whatever reason. Atmosphere, pacing, quality of missions just seemed better.

Can't choose. Both are amazing.

You kinda suck at making polls lol.

Anyway , I choose Asylum. AC's world was too small and felt restrictive at times , and it makes no sense after the ending. I also think the game has too much boring content overall. Also , they've added all these new characters , but no Joker or Two Face option(CMIIW) ?

Asylum. Just.

Only because I felt like the 'kill room' scenarios were ruined in City, and those tense close quarters stealth fights were very atmospheric. I do like the open world aspect of city and its great, but in a straight choice I'd take asylum every time.

I gotta go with Arkham Asylum. Don't get me wrong, Arkham City was excellent, but I just felt like Asylum was paced a little better.
