Now, Batman: Arkham Asylum IS that Batman game that you have always wanted to play.
It satisfies every part of you Batman desires and really gives you the feeling that you ARE Batman.
From the strength and power to the gadgets to the stealth and surprise you can bring toward your enemy, it is quite a marvel that a game developer finally got it right.
Thank you Rocksteady!
I do not want to give away any spoilers from the game so the plot is really basic and simple.
The Joker has taken total control over Arkham island and Batman needs to hunt him down to stop him, but not without going through many of Batman's familiar villians in the process.
Batman's gadgets come in handy often, most of the time you will be using his 'detective mode' which is built into the cowl and gives you the ability to see important items in the room and clues to lead you in the right direction.
There will be some moments where you find yourself just playing with all of Batman' gadgets for 10-15 minutes because there are so many of them to play with. (It feeds your inner dork so it's okay!)
Gameplay mechanics are solid and I have yet to find a defect in them or any glitches.
Fighting is very enjoyable, because you can be surrounded by 6-10 enemies and everytime an enemy is about to attack you hit the counter-attack button and continue to fight off all of them at once. Very fun.
The graphics are amazing and highly detailed like you would expect from a PS3.
Voice-over work is superb and Mark Hamill, as The Joker, really steals the show.Read more ›
This is a spooky, creepy, gothic-style sand-box where you play the real Batman. Real in that he can't jump 20 ft high, but rely on his gadgets, skill and intellect to avoid, escape and hunt enemies, find important evidence and scout locations. The fighting mechanics are easy that even a 10 years old child can use it, but the difficulty of using it increases where you have to use some of Batman's gadgets to take down larger opponents. At one of several moments, I had to jump into a group of enemies to get to a location. At first I was hesitant, but then I remember how easy it can be if I remember how to deal with each kind of enemy. First, I see what kind of enemies their are and plan my onslaught. To test and hone-in you fighting skills, you have challenges outside the main game to practice on.
It's not just a button-smashing game, its also a puzzler. You can switch into 'detective mode' to find evidence, trophies and solve environmental riddles as well as figure out how to get to one place to another.
I beat the game in 10 hours, but worth going back to try on harder challenging levels as well as to complete the entire game. Puzzles were very cleaver. I had trouble with a certain type of puzzle that I decided to completely ignore them. Now, I have figured it's skillful ways and hitting myself for not thinking of it earlier.
Two things I hated were the fact that I couldn't get to certain locations and be able to get things without the upgrades I got later. The next problem of mine is that the game ended where Batman goes back to Gotham City.
One actual problem is the Scarecrow challenges.Read more ›
The graphics are very smooth and I didn't notice any frame rate issues. Absolutely everything looks breath taking, from the batarangs to the thugs upon that Batman wantonly stomps. The sound design is perfect: nothing is too loud or too soft and the sound effects don't sound out of place at all.
The only real problem i have with the game is it's length. I beat the game in two sittings in a total of about 8.5 hours. Sure there are things to do after the game is finished, but hunting for trophies and riddles gets old real fast and unless you're the OCD type who has to finish every little thing, bear that in mind.
Arkham Asylum is a good game with a great story but is kind of short.
If you're a fan of the Batman universe, you'll fall in love with the story. The story is penned by Paul Dini, a former producer and writer for Batman: The Animated series, and a man who clearly knows him his Batman. The story picks up just as the Dark Knight has captured The Joker, and is delivering him to the famed Gotham madhouse. Batman notices something suspicious, however, as The Joker didn't put up much of a fight, and, alas, he is quite right. When The Joker arrives at Arkham, all hell breaks loose, and he's the man behind it all. The events of the game will follow Batman's night in the asylum as he tries to put an end to The Joker's rampage. The plot throws in quite a number of characters from the Batman universe, and even the few who aren't included are referenced. During your adventures in the madhouse, you can find a ton of material about pretty much all of the significant characters in the Batman mythos from their background on down to their first comic book appearance. The game's main plot is fully featured as is, and all the extras will be sure to please any comic book fan.
Arkham Asylum offers quite a number of gameplay elements, and pulls them off well. To put the core experience in simple terms; it's a lot like a Metroid game. You'll venture through the asylum, eager to explore as much as you can until you find a certain key item. You then use said item to venture further into the environment.Read more ›

A good, dated game. I am a casual video-gamer who came late to the PS3 party mainly because of the 'blocky' animations of supposedly cinematic characters. Read morePublished 7 months ago by D. Knouse
