Batman Arkham City: Harley Quinns Revenge

Batman Arkham City: Harley Quinns Revenge

Spoiler Alert!! If you have not played or finished Arkham City do not read on!

Batman is missing, captured by Harley Quinn in revenge for Joker’s death and it is up to Robin to save him. Yeah that’s right Robin, you know the character that everybody loves to hate. Batman’s most annoying side-kick? However, as with all of the characters from Batman, Rocksteady have re-imagined the boy wonder and made him cool!

Robin is now a cool cape-wearing badass with a stick that he can twirl (okay, that doesn’t sound particularly cool) but his fight sequences are pretty awesome and the moves he can perform with said stick are totally hardcore!

Harley Quinn’s Revenge is the first new mission for Arkham City and as well as introducing us to Robin it brings an entirely new mission to us. As I already mentioned, Harely has kidnapped Batman whilst he was on a rescue mission to free some cops. In the game you get to play as both Robin and Batman as they work to free the hostages and stop Harley.

The game takes place in familiar surroundings, Arkham City‘s Steel Mill and the adjoining streets is where the story is focused. Although navigation through these areas is different than before.

The DLC is short, just over an hour, possibly less. But at £6.49 it is a welcome return to Arkham City and a fun romp while it lasts. The addition of the new character adds variety to the gameplay but it feels over a little too quickly and it would have been nice to have had longer with Robin. That said Arkham City is a great game and any reason to revisit it is always welcome!
