Join the Dark Night as he soars into Arkham City, the new home for all of Gotham City's thugs. The sequel to Arkham Asylum brings together an all-star cast of heroes and villains. Building on the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City sends players soaring in to the maximum security home of Gotham City’s thugs and criminal masterminds. The strategy guide provides walkthrough chapters helping you subdue villains, deploy gadgets for maximum effect and lets you view area maps littered with item locations...

If you've bought Batman: Arkham City for PS3, PC or Xbox 360 (and if you haven't... why not?) then you'll know that part of the game involves you having to explore your surroundings if you want to complete all the side quests. So, what you'll need, to get the most out of the game, is a handy guide book. That's where Brady Games steps in with the latest release in its Signature Series Guide book.

This 274 page book will not only walk you through the main campaign more (in case you get stuck) but will make sure that you don't miss out on any side missions or hidden collectibles along the way.

There's also a detailed look at all of the weapons in the game; area maps for every part of Arkham City; character and villain bios; and a rundown of all the game's new moves.

Lovingly laid out, as all Signature Series Guides are, this book is an essential purchase for all owners in the game who want to get the most out of their gaming experience.
