My only (small) complaint is the need for a Windows Live account to play Asylum. Not terrible, but annoying if you didn't have one. I hate registering for anything extra when I'm playing what is essentially an offline game. Still, it was a small bump in the road, and not worth knocking off any stars, especially considering the 2-for-1 pricetag. Big thumbs up.
The second major criticism I have is of the game's mechanics. The combat system seems to not give enough control to the player. It's a basic strike and block system with combos and methods of evading attacks. In comparison to most fighting games, eg. Assassins creed, that's normal, but it pales in comparison with the combat in my personal favorite way to play Batman: DC Universe Online, which utilizes a rock-paper-scissors combat system involving combos and containing dodges.
The only potential deal-killer in both of these games is the integrated and required extension, Games for Windows Live. Despite creating and connecting with an online account, I could not save my progress across multiple PCs. Apparently, this feature cannot be avoided if you play on the PC, and the more I researched GFWL, the more rants and rages by users I uncovered. Thankfully, this is the only game I find worth buying that carries the GFWL parasite.
One final negative thought. The boss battles in Arkham Asylum with Scarecrow felt like a 2.5 dimensional platformer, and could have been improved upon.

Two words: Love. It.
The Arkham series is one of the best games I have played in years; much better than Mass Effect 3, if you've played that. Read more
