Great Combat, Mediorce Story

Kaune | Oct. 3, 2013 | Review of Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year

Right off the bat (haha), the game is fun and makes you "ooh-and-ahh" from the combat system. The combat is simple, but carries throughout the game well without becoming too stale. I feel that it is good to not evolve the combat as superheroes are already pretty super. The graphics were great! I loved the detail that was put into this game, especially when I noticed rips and tears in Batman's outfit. The story was pretty linear despite being an "open world" island. I mainly just went point to point and didn't ever feel the incentive to explore a part of the island on my own. Collectibles are abundant, but not compelling to collect. The final boss was pretty climatic and left me unsatisfied. Overall the game was enjoyable for its combat and graphical fidelity. The best superhero game I have played though, hands down.
