The beginning of an amazing series

This is the beginning of one of my favorite video game series. Arkham Asylum may seem a bit rusty and small after playing the legends like Arkham City, but it holds it's own ground. The mechanics are still well oiled, and the fighting is relatively simple. The map is a decent size, and Batman revisits various areas of the island throughout the night, finding different things every time.

The plot of this game is relatively simple. Joker is being classic Joker, screwing everything up and making life very difficult for The Bat, but it makes a great story and game for the player. The plot is relatively simple and in a straight line, but it isn't just Joker that we run into. There are other great villains like Poison Ivy and Killer Croc that have great boss battles.

The game is simple, but in this case, simplicity is the beginning of something great. It's great to play through over again too, almost like watching an interactive movie. Definitely recommend it for any Batman fan, especially if you plan to play any of the other games from the series. It enhances the quality of all the future games.


A masterpiece for all audiences

Overall, it is a great game. Excellent graphics, good soundtrack and fluid system combat. Although the game focuses only on an island scenarios will evolve according to your progress, making the game very original. The story is very interesting and the variety of characters (allies and villains) enrich the game. Separate from the main goal of the game, there will be secondary missions and a lot of collectables that increase the duration of the game. This is a game for all audiences, regardless of you like or not batman, because the game is a masterpiece of gaming. Give it a chance, because you're missing a great game.

Before this game: Only reading Batman comics makes me "feel" like Batman After this game: I AM BATMAN "But wait, Steve-" SHUT UP I AM BATMAN

Long story short, this game is awesome. Rocksteady has done a truly fantastic job in capturing the essence of Batman in a kick-ass game. You have the gadgets, the martial arts and the detective skills of Batman.that other superhero games can't really compare to. It's revolutionary freeflow combat is crazy fun and one of the major things that make Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham Asylum. Even the plot is amazing, taking us to a time where Joker's schemes keep getting bigger and bigger, and Batman becomes better and better. All in all, this game is a MUST buy for superhero fans and a definite BUY for gamers alike. Trust me. You won't be disappointed. BATMAN OUT

Become one of the greatest legends in comic hero history and save Arkham from near certain doom! Batman Arkham Asylum has fantastic visuals, fun combat mechanics, and a great story to top it all off. While some of the detective work gameplay could use some attention, the rest of the game makes up for it. Stalk your prey, plan your attack, and strike. Become the Batman.
