Batman: Arkham City is the “highest reviewed videogame” of the year, according to a rather excitable press release. The game has shipped more than 4.6 million units worldwide, too.
The PR says that the week one sales figure is more than double that of Arkham Asylum, and shouts about the Metacritic scores of 96% (on PS3) and 95% (on 360), presumably rather happy about a couple of Uncharted 3 reviews dragging that one down.
“Batman: Arkham City is one of the best action adventure games, proven by the tremendous reviews, and it further establishes the Batman brand as a marquee franchise for our growing business,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
“Rocksteady Studios went above and beyond in delivering an incredible game and the support of the entire team at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment drove the excellent campaign a game like this deserves.”
