by slimer024 absolutly incredible, theres no other game like it
at first i wasnt into superhero comics ,action figures, or even games. When batman arkham asylum came out my heart stopped. I was so happy and intrested that i had to buy the game. The game has so many levels and all of them are as fun as can be. The villians you battle against are: the joker, poison ivy, harley quien, killer croc and bane. i consider this game to anyone . Only on ps3 you can play as joker and its a cool feature. So what you waiting for go get the game!

This is my favorite game. It has movie style graphics, and flawless gameplay. So, here's how it goes. The Joker has been taken to Arkham to be locked up. Joker escaped custody, and Harley let Joker in to the asylum. Batman breaks in, and the action begins. This game uses the best combat in a videogame, and it's really addicting. Once you start a combo, then you go in to what is known as freeflow combat. In freeflow, all you do is hit X, triangle, or circle, and it basically fights for you. Anyways, Joker had all of his crew shipped in from Blackgate prison, and they began to take over Arkham with the aid of a great amount of super criminals. If you haven't played the game, I won't say who the other villains are, but they are all awesome. Some of them can even be frightening. I have beaten this game 5 times, and I am excited for the sequel. Let's see if you can take back the asylum.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ps3XbxMane Highly recommended
Well were to start, I headed over the my local Gamestop/Ebgames and was just looking for something diffrent from my normal sports game. I wanted something with a story line so i took it as a recommendation from the sales clerk from the store. He said it was one of the best games he's played this year other than uncharted 2 so i went ahead and listened to him. I was complety satisfyed this has also got to be one of the best game ive played the graphics are all around really great compared to other spiderman type games in the super hero line up. The controls are easy to pick up on the only down fall on the game to me really is that the fighting of the villians is pretty simple for the most part, the gameplay and storyline cover that all up though. It does have a challege to it and its very addicting and once you start playing you wont want to put down the controler this is a must have game so go out and get it and experience it yourself. overall game 9 out of 10 but 10 out of 10 for buying it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by strwy2hvn94 Quite simply the best Batman game ever.
I followed this game since it was announced, and I was so happy to pop it in and have it go above my expectations. Just the idea that the game takes place in a such a historic place (in the comics) opens the door for so many things. First off, the atmosphere is great and changes for the appropriate situation. For example, during a boss fight the music swells up and picks up pace. Or, for the scarecrow segments, eerie sound effects and imagery take center stage. The graphics are simply stunning and show incredible detail, from water to the buildings to batman himself. One of the biggest and best features is the freeflow combat which allows seamless transitions to each enemies and huge combos. And what about completing the game? in most other 1 player adventure games, the action stops. But with Arkham Asylum's challenge maps, reply is increased sevenfold. Besides, the joker maps are crazy fun. So, the only thing you should be asking yourself is why you haven't bought this already.
Rated 0 out of 10 Highly anticipated game!!!
When I first heard about this game, I thought it would be mediocre and not even worth looking at. However, as the release date keeps getting closer, the better the images, videos, and news about this game become. I played the demo at game stop for ps3 and I was playing for several hours! It was so addicting! However, as great as this game looks, I'm double-minded on whether I should buy it or rent it. Luckily, ps3 owners, including me, will get to play as joker, which is something great to look forward to. The graphics look awesome. The game-play looks flawless. The story will be very interesting too. As for the villains, I hope some more will be in the game such as Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, Clayface, and more. Unfortunately, based on the latest trailer and the game's release only a month away, it doesn't seem like there will be anymore villains that we are unaware of. Overall, this game looks impressive, and hopefully one of the best games of 2009, so I'm looking forward to it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ShadowVyper GAME OF THE YEAR
This is by far the BEST Batman game ever made. From the day I picked it up I was in awe. Finally a Game worthy of the DARKNITE. The combo system is easy to get used to but dynamic. The gadgets make sense and are useful at all stages of the game. The graphics are dark and sinister befitting a true Darknight video game. I can't wait for another Batman game by this team they did a fantastic job. Every Character in this game looks and feels like a true villian. I love the Detective mode it gives you a whole new insight into Batmans world that you have been able to experience from a comic book, cartoon or movie. I would like to see the batarang return to you though if you throw it out in the open, But thats just me. I like that all the bosses don't feel the same. And while the concept for each boss is easy actually executing the kill is still a challenge. I hope the next game is set in a more open world like Gotham city. Please give me the keys to that sweet batmobile. Great job guys making this one.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Zpeed226 Great in the first run, but...
I loved Batman Arkham Asylum, the graphics were stunning, the gameplay was fun and amusing when you scare someone to the point of where they go slightly insane, to going around beating guys unconscious, to just going around and finding collectables. But the now we come to a problem, that's pretty much all that can be done in story mode. The only other thing to try to do is get high scores in the challenge rooms that you unlock through finding things in the campaign. After you beat the story, we come to another wall. Barley anybody to fight (once and while you might find a thug or two), and collecting things you didn't before. If you're not into collecting things or scores, this game won't last you long, but it's difficulty and possibilities give it depth. With all the combonations you can come up with brings content. The game is fun, but gets repetitive later on. I recomend it to anyone who loves Batman, stealth, or up close combat. I sure liked it...... While it lasted.
Rated 10 out of 10 by clos0991 Batman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I recently brought Batman: Arkham Asylum and this gmae just blew me away from the start. The graphics of the game is so realistic, the game is just like a movie the storyline is great if you dont have this game then you are crazy the best game of the summer.This game was so good I really do hope that they make a secong part to the game but this time instead of Batman being in Arkham Asylum he is in Gotham City stopping other villians like The Ridler,Catwoman,Two Face and so on i really loved this game.I loved the game so much that i just beat it and I am about to start the story line all over again because i still have this to unlock. The games story line is a good time length as well the only thing i wish about this game is that they had more of the famous villians of batman in this game but i think they saved them to keep us waiting for them in the upcoming batman game I hope and if they do come out with a new one I hope it is as good as this one graphics just as good story just as good just better.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Black suit Spidey the best superhero gaming experience up to date
This game was highly anticipated before it came out and even more impresing now. Their is absolutely no flaws at all. The challenge is inteligent and fully strategic. The controls blend perfectly with the gameplay mechanics with a nice camera perspective. The graphics are highly detailed with every litlle spec from water driping to batman's cape floming in the air to the lutious looking enviroments in the asylum. The interface in the pause menu is a direct picture of what is currently displaed on the game screen with different options to select from. The startup menu is yet another lutious enviroment screensaver with bats flying by every time you select something from the menu.The storyline is perfect for a batman game because it allows you to use batman to his best with cool gadets and strategic gameplay. Also even as a bonus on the ps3 version the unique play as the Joker mode but it requires you to have internet connection.Overall it is a must buy for all superhero fans and even newcomers to the genre.
