I prefer the ''Metroid'' of AA than AC's Open world sandbox feel. The Hugo Strange story felt useless since its 80% about Joker again. AC bored me quickly while AA, I had no problem replaying it 5 times.
Arkham City is better in every way. Usually I'd gladly respect opinions on games, but saying otherwise just seems like a blatant lie.
Arkham City had a better, more engaging story. Improved gameplay and combat. Larger environments and cast of characters. Cool side missions and events that actually make you feel like a detective. Great boss fights that are sooooo much better than Asylum's. It just felt like more of a real Batman game. The only thing I liked about Asylum was the Scarecrow sequences. The rest of that game was a bit disappointing. The bosses sucked especially. --- Playing - Far Cry 3, Black Ops 2, PSABR, Halo 4, Lego LOTR, Darksiders 2, Forza Horizon, Transformers FOC, DOA5, Game of Thrones, Skyrim, Resident Evil 6, MAA
I say arkham city I love the open world feel and the story especially with the assassin part. --- Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!
AC had better combat, AA had better atmosphere. --- Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG. Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.
