Something new that didn't disappoint

As a gamer who grew up with FPSs and RPGs I was quite hesitant to pick up this game, especially since I wasn't a fan of Batman (Go Superman!), however I am glad to say that I was not disappointed. In fact it was the opposite, I was enthralled.

The story line to Asylum is nicely done and well paced moving the events of the story along naturally, the graphics were superb and the voice acting was brilliant. The fighting mechanics. My god they are amazing. Every technique or move you use is satisfying to use especially hearing the crunching of bones and shrills of 'dangerous inmates' when they find out batman is in the room.

I highly Suggest you pick up this game, not just because it's a batman game but because of its mechanics and the way the game just plays out.

Only complaint I have, which isn't a big deal, is that if you're a 100% completest you're going to have to replay the game more than once which can be quite annoying as although there is replay ability it's more of a "oh look I haven't played this game in a few months..." replay ability as oppose to a "It's still fun to play although I beat it yesterday..." vibe.

A great experience!

Definitely worth your time and money, one of the best games I've played, the story is incredible and has some of the best graphics for its time!

The only thing that's lacking in this game is that it's not open world but it's still completely traversable and you can explore the whole of the asylum whenever you want!

You gain upgrades throughout the game including power gell, spray that on the walls and stand back for explosive effect!

Seriously if you haven't played this game before you are missing out on such an experience.

My only problem is the ending for the game is not great considering the rest of the game.
