Go for Arkham City. You will have a lot more fun with that game.

don't listen to this 2. they don't know anything. Definitely buy this game. How can u not. It's the original and the best. Don't bother with halo 4 the game sucks on all accounts especially the online multiplayer matchmaking.

once u get it, to get the best experience for this game. play the game in classic mode 1st. Sure the new updated mode is lot better but it still won't have the same impact as playing the game in classic mode does. But then again the choice is yours and yours alone.

Well I suggest getting Arkham Asylum first if you havent played that. It is really cheap now so make sure you get it (I liked it the same if not better than Arkham City)....

But as to your question, it depends on what type of game you like. Most people want to get Halo 4 right away because they want to start playing multiplayer. If you dont play MP, then I suggest getting Arkham City first and then getting Halo 4 when the price drops. Arkham City will keep you entertained for at least 40 hours of gameplay. Lots to do.

Arkham City is one of the best games I have ever played. That and Red Dead Redemption

If you're an old school Halo fan it's worth it. If you're not a huge Halo fan or have other things that take more priority then don't worry about picking this up too quickly.

That said, it's a great game, and it would be a good way to get started with the Halo series if you've never played it.

Halo

For 13 including delivery from amazon?

You've probably made your decision already; but a great game reborn.
You can't really argue! However batman is a great game

I've only been playing halo for a few hours so far but it brings back so many
old memories from the first xbox released as its the first game I had
