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


We start to see some FPS shaved off as we move to 1920 x 1200. We can see that the GTX 560 Ti manages to break that 60 FPS barrier we aim for. Moving to a standard GTX 560 would bring with it the need to drop detail at this resolution. A GTX 560 Ti onwards, though, won't have an issue under these situations.


- AMD Cards


Nothing changes on the CrossFire side of things again with serious performance issues at the moment. We can see that the HD 6850 also drops below that 60 FPS average which comes as no surprise since we found ourselves at 59 FPS under 1680 x 1060. The HD 6870 manages to scrape in with the HD 6950; you can see the HD 6970 continues to offer us strong FPS, though.
