Arkham City is an open world action video game that incorporates elements of stealth and predator tactics. All of the gadgets previously obtained in the first game are present at the start of Arkham City (with the exception of the Line Launcher and the Ultra Batclaw, which is replaced with the regular Batclaw and Sonic Batarangs). The game incorporates more puzzle elements; the use of Batman's "Detective Mode", which highlights elements such as enemy skeletons and clues on-screen, is used to perform forensic activities such as tracing the origin of a sniper round.




- NVIDIA Cards


Across the board you can see strong performance out of the NVIDIA line-up with no cards having an issue dealing with Arkham City under 1680 x 1050. You should find at these settings a GTX 560 onwards will be perfectly fine.


- AMD Cards


Straight away you can see that CrossFire support in the game is broken with a drop in performance compared to the single GPU options. The HD 6850 offers us an average of 59 FPS, so we're right on the edge of that playable number we talk about often. The HD 6870 to HD 6970 you can see doesn't have an issue with the game at all.
