Reviews for Batman: Arkham Asylum
A great start to a franchise!TETfromLondon | Nov. 13, 2013 | See all TETfromLondon's reviews »
Speaking as someone who doesn't really care about comic books, it is quite hard to get me interested in anything super hero related. However, Batman: Arkham Asylum is an excellent game with a great story and atmosphere and one of the best third person fighting mechanics I've ever used. There really isn't much else to say about it, except that there's plenty of replay value. Well worth buying, especially at a low price.

Not only does this game have the best combat in a superhero game ever! But it offers a great story in a fairly decent sized open world. Although the world may not be gigantic, it makes up for this in the detail which the developer has hand crafted into every area of the game map. In addition to this, you don't have to be a Batman fan at all to enjoy the game, the story is kept understandable enough for people who are new to the universe and complex enough to satisfy long time fans...

Fluid gameplay, solid graphics and a solid storyline that's easily accessible to even newcomers to the DC Universe franchise (but seriously though, really?).
The only thing I felt held Arkham Asylum back is the fact that the gameplay area was just generally quite smaller than most other games. Arkham City which came after it had the right size, but perhaps it was a shortcoming to set it in such a small area of the Batman universe. Perhaps they could have made the Asylum bigger by adding extra floors to it and such.
Otherwise, the game is a solid one with no major floors or bugs or glitches.

This is a very nice start to the batman games. You can play this even if you have no knowledge of batman universe and it will still be enjoyable. The graphics are nice and story is great. The gameplay is awesome as you play as Batman, you really feel the role as you have access to his gadgets and fighting skills. The combat is fluid.
