I was able to activate the game on steam without any issue. I bought Arkham Asylum first and this later. Both of the two games excel in their respective quarters. Arkham Asylum is better than Arkham City in terms of storyline and character development, while Arkham City is more engaging with the even improved flow of motion, controls, and a much expanded repertoire of actions you are able to perform as Batman; well, plus Catwoman.

Worth every penny I paid.

Just finished the main game today. Put in around 19 hours and still have about 50 riddles to solve. I would definitely replay the story mode also. Still haven't touched any of the challenge modes or extra content.

This game is loaded with pros. There's a great story with great voice acting that is true to all the characters. Parts of the story revolving around Scarecrow are very creepy.

Combat is excellent. I love the various ways Batman attacks, counters, and evades all into combo chains. There are 20 upgrades available to your attack, armor, and tools, though I only found about half worthwhile. On the final blow in many combo chains, there are cinematic animations that zoom in on the knockout blows. You can attack from above, below, around corners.

Boss battles are varied. Scarecrow levels are unique as they are a completely different gameplay mechanic that is a bit more 2D. Objectives are clear with map markers to point you in the right direction. The battle with Killer Croc wasn't what I was expecting, and I mean that in a good way. Strangely, the final battle is probably the easiest in the game.

One of the best aspects of the game is exploration. You can crawl through ventilation systems, find structural weaknesses to tear down or blast your way through, and countless places to fire your grappling hook into. And there are 240 challenges to solve from the Riddler scattered throughout Arkham Island.

Graphics are great, though the faces on the characters could use a bit of work. I have Radeon HD 6350 graphics built in to the motherboard, 8 GB of RAM, and an AMD Quad Core 3620, which was one of the cheaper desktops I could find in summer 2012. Nothing fancy, and I was able to max out all graphics settings without a glitch.

I bought this during the Black Friday sale, when it was only $5. You pay for the product code and activate it via Steam. It is a great game, with fun gameplay and a compelling story. I would recommend this game to any fan of Batman and/or action video games, and most certainly get it if it's on sale.
* Gameplay - 5/5
* Story - 5/5

If you played through the old 8-bit and 16-bit days and even into the DVD based systems, you know just how bad Batman games were. They were right on par with Spider-man games which were mostly frustrating, weird, and didn't feel like you were playing as the hero you saw on TV or in the comics. We've come a long way.

The Joker has allowed himself to be captured and taken to Arkham. No sooner is he in than he springs his trap and away we go. The game world is nicely detailed and things look realistic without having to have a $200 graphics card. I'm running a GT 240 I got around 3 years ago and everything runs smooth as silk.

You have access to gadgets like explosive jell, your baterrangs, and grappling hook. You also have a very cool "Detective Mode" which lets you see through walls via infrared and helps point out walls you can blow up. It also shows you the state of enemies (calm/tense/terrified) and picks out thugs with firearms. Combat is fun. Controls streamlined. Everything is polished. It manages to take care of almost every major complaint one has about a game being unfun.

The only thing I'd say against it, all the streamlining makes some of the moves feel like autopilot. At times it felt more like I was just pressing buttons to watch a movie than playing a game. It can also be a little hint happy and feel like it's just telling you where to go next. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, one of my major annoyances is if I get lost in a game and waste time not doing anything fun, but it'd have been a little better if it waited to see you were lost and then started getting progressively more "helpful" in the hints. All told though, spectacular game.

Saw this on sale for $9.99 along with Arkham City. Can't get a better deal than that! These are considered two of the finest and quite possibly the greatest superhero games ever developed with tons of positive reviews from reputable gaming sites.

What more can be said about 2009's "Game of the Year"? The graphics are awesome; the story is engaging; The Joker is creepy and his voice is spine-tingling; the challenges are thought-provoking; and the action is thrilling. There's not a thing not to love about the game. After 'Myst,' hidden object games, being enthralled by 'Tradewinds' and 'Polar Bowler' (Please don't laugh!) maybe I don't have enough experience to compare, but the breakthroughs of 'Batman Arkham Asylum' are impressive, and I have only experienced 1% of the game. It is chilling enough in atmosphere, stellar in suspense, and dark enough in mood.

My objections are not going to be encountered by all (or perhaps even many) gamers, but enacting "Steam" as my stream, was frustrating. (Thanks, by the way, to all the reviewers who chimed in that "Steam" was essential to this 'Batman...' game experience. I believed you then, and I believe you now.) Then, getting into 'Windows Gaming' took incredibly long. I was going in circles until I finally was able to enable the game and play. Literally, it took me hours. For most of you, these points are trivia pursuit, and most of you would have taken the pains I did to get this game going...but I think there should be more instructions and less reliance on so many more purveyors than Amazon from the onset. Yes, there were some directions, but more detailed, step-by-step instructions would have made the set up experience far more hassle-free.

Set up was a pain, but now I'm in the world I never dreamed could be available to play on the computer. Cheers.
