The graphics themselves look excellent and the sound is crystal clear. The one area where this remaster really shines is in the graphical department; Batman's cape looks textured and strong, Joker's suit appears weathered and Catwoman's signature catsuit is shiny and sleek. When it comes to detail this version manages to improve upon the originals and adds even more tweaks to these already impressive models. The characters themselves look a bit off at times (especially Batman and Commissioner Gordon) but overall there's nothing too distracting. Some may be bothered by the brighter environments but it's not enough to ruin the atmosphere. Arkham Asylum still feels creepy and Arkham City is as seedy and dirty as ever. The games play as well as they did initially and I encountered very few problems. Those fun combos are just as easy to pull off as ever; on the surface everything looks and sounds amazing.
Unfortunately the frame rate is where this collection suffers and it will likely be the biggest point of contention for most gamers. Both games feel choppy and the frame stuttering is noticeable almost right away. There are parts in Asylum, especially in the sewers and throughout the various corridors, where the stuttering is constant and it becomes distracting the longer it goes on. My wife even mentioned that it was making her a bit nauseous and I've heard from several others who experienced motion sickness or headaches from the inconsistent frame rate. City seems to run a bit smoother, although it feels faster for some reason that I can't explain, but it's still there and gliding through the air feels less majestic because of this. It's not game-breaking and eventually you will adapt to it, but it's hard not to be disappointed that this wasn't locked at 60 fps. The Uncharted Collection did this flawlessly and I wish more remasters would follow that blueprint. At the time of writing this (11/2/16) there hasn't been an update to fix this problem. I'll edit my review if a patch happens to be released but for now it's something we'll have to live with.
Return to Arkham is a great collection with a fresh coat of paint, something that is only held back by the unlocked frame rate. At this point in time I would recommend waiting for a price drop if you're on the fence. It's certainly a playable game but considering how well the originals performed it's disheartening that this wasn't tested further. If you can look past the stuttering then it's great to revisit these games and be Batman once again.
