Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City is a sequel to 2009’s Game of the Year winning Batman: Arkham Asylum. This recently released sequel, however, lives up to and even surpasses the original. The story takes place 18 months after the original game. Quincy Sharp, the onetime administrator of Arkham Asylum, has become mayor and convinced Gotham to create "Arkham City" by walling off the worst, most crime-ridden areas of the city and turning the area into a giant open-air prison. The game has DirectX 9 and 11 rendering paths, with support for tessellation, multi-view soft shadows, and ambient occlusion. We tested in DX11 mode with all in-game graphical options set to their maximum values, at various resolutions.

Batman: Arkham City proved to be somewhat of a strong point for the new Radeon HD 7700 series cards. In this test, the Radeon HD 7770 still trailed the GeForce GTX 560, but the delta wasn't very big. The Radeon HD 7750, however, was able to pull ahead of the GeForce GTX 550 for the first time and almost hit the mark set by the Radeon HD 6790.
