The first game in batman trilogy is Batman: Arkham Asylum Which brought with it the revolution and a wave of excitement in the gaming industry. The elements used in the game were so evolved and efficient that various game makers inspired them to make their own game. Finally, the Batman Arkham series is one of the most prominent games of history, and RockSteady in its first attempt to prove that it is possible to make an exciting game even with the use of celebrity characters such as Batman, and enticing everyone. Batman Arkham's triple experience is one of the experiences that every gamer has to achieve.
Batman Arkham Asylum is the first installment of the Batman Arkhan series and it's about a adventure of batman trying to overcome a riot caused by the kjoker at Arkham Asylum. The game is your typical Batman Arkham game: you'll kick, punch and use a lot of bat-tools for overcome your obstacles and enemies. All of them with amazing plot and storyline. And mindblowing graphics. Don't wait, play this game. You won't regret.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is the first game of highly acclaimed series, it introduces the gameplay we all know and love now. While the map wasn't very big the game had some amazing boss fights, the only letdown was the final fight of the game that didn't fit to the Batman story. Overall you can call this game a legend that even after all these years after the release looks good.
The so-called 'arkham style combat' is not challenging. it's obnoxious. I don't feel in control; I'm just spamming left click, and watching batman do all the work. I played it on the hardest difficulty, and had no trouble spamming my way through the campaign. The stealth is okay... functional. It's fine. You're gonna be fighting most of the time anyway, so it doesn't really matter. The story is fairly bog-standard. Joker escaped.... taking over the asylum.... and you are the only one.... whatever. I didn't have an amazing time with this game, but you might. It's usually on sale, so maybe pick it up if you really love batman.
If you think back, video games never really did justice for the caped crusader. We had a lot of generic beat 'em up action games and an equal amount of 3d fighting games that looked horrible, had worse gameplay. Anyway you were controlling a black clothed dude with pointy ears that punched other dudes. Maybe he used batarangs, but that's it. And then, there's this game. Who would've thought that the best Genre for Batman is metroidvania. Rocksteady... This game does everything right. The story is perfect, the voices are awesome (had to be, with these actors) the graphics are great and you can use a ton of bat themed gadgets effectively. The game is rich in DC Lore, their is fan service through the roof, and so a batman fan will feel right at home. The game has stealth, melee fighting sessions, and both work fine. You actually feel like batman. The only part which under performs are the boss fights. they are not bad, but apart from Scarecrow nothing special. Big bulky dudes, that take a ton of punishment before they fall, and run straight into a wall if you dodge in time. Of course, the main reason you should play this game is the Riddler. His challenges are the real test for the worlds greatest detective and the reason, that this game for the first time ever actually feels like a BATMAN game, and not a generic superhero brawler.
