The best comic book video game


This is one of those instances where nostalgia wins for me. While City improved on a lot of things, Asylum remains my favorite from the series. This game introduced me to Batman and his extensive rogues' gallery. With Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin reprising their roles from the excellent Batman: The Animated Series as well as Paul Dini - who created B:TAS and Harley Quinn - writing the script, this game is the perfect depiction of Batman. The gameplay might feel dated to some but, while it does feel somewhat gamey, it's also quite innovative and even goes into really interesting meta territory. The story is quintessential Batman. Loosely based on the Arkham Asylum graphic novel, it sees Batman confront most of his rogues' gallery and tries to explore their psyche as well as Batman's own psychology. This game is a must play in my book.

Batman done right!


Finally, someone made a game, that not only looks good, has the titanic cast from the cartoons, and has a fun gameplay, but also captures every essence of the Batman! This character seems like really is hard to do properly! Arkham Asylum has a pretty good batman story, involving a ton of his rogues, and even more easter eggs. The fighting system is crazy good, that has been copied since countless times, but also, there is a rather good stealth component as well, and a rather essential detective part, where you look for clues. Also, if you're into a real treat, you can solve the many riddles in the game, some of which are truly hard! In my opinion, this is the second best batman game ever made, and the only one better is the sequel, and i admit, many people say it's the other way around. What is undeniable, is both of them are good games, well worth your time and money.

Best Possible Entry for Batman Saga!
