Batman: Arkham Asylum
For being the first in the trilogy it's amazing. And in general this game: AMAZING. The makers of this game let you experience being Batman in a way that was never done before. This game is perfect FOR ANY BATMAN FAN. And threw out the 3 games in the Trilogy the graphics are second to none. They are amazing as well.
Not bad but not great
Hardcore Batman fans will appreciate this game but at times this game can be flat at some points in the game.
What a great game!
Its like your playing through a movie. To be honest I have never played a story as entertaining and strategic as this one. These Batman games are very fun and get you to think, fight, and explore as the Legendary Dark Knight. This game was was a good way to start the Batman Arkham series. I do have to say though that once you beat the story there is really nothing left to do but either start a new game or play the challenge maps. I expected some extra fun modes. I strongly recommend this game if you are considering playing the Batman Arkham series!

Defining Superhero Games
No one was holding their breath for this game. The games that had preceded it, for not only Batman, but all superheroes had been less than average games. But when Batman: Arkham Asylum was released, it was a very much needed surprise for superhero fans - especially us Batman fans. The story is - admittedly - predictable, but not in a way that made it disappointing. Quite the contrary; because what else could we want out of our Caped Crusader when we get to run around as him, beating up the bad guys, freaking out of the henchmen in stealth mode, AND getting to win against the Joker in the end? All while having fun doing it? The game is great for casual gamers that like to go through the story and be done with it. But even the hardcore gamers can have their fun while completing the story and the side missions that the Riddler has set out for you. The game is a great replay as well. Going back through the story you see things you didn't see before and can challenge yourself to complete new tasks - like finding Riddler's trophies and riddles you didn't pick up the first time! The game is a great relief for fans, and long awaited for Batman fans. It will not disappoint.
A great Batman game
This in my own opinion was the first real fun and good Batman created on any console. The storyline was great and the gameplay is even better.
One of the best games ever featuring a licensed character. This game makes you feel like you are really Batman. The voice acting is great and that really helps with the characters. Mark Hamill is the best Joker ever. I can't think of many things to say about this game, but both it and its sequel are awesome. Even if you're not a Batman fan, you'll still probably enjoy this game. If you are, you definitely will.
BEST GAME! #1
I love this game! After watching the Dark Knight trilogy I wanted to buy this game. Honestly, I wanted to buy it since the first trailer premiered on youtube but my parents said that I was not old enough to play it. Here I am 5 years later. I see it on Gamestop.com for $13 and I ask my parents and they say it's fine. I go in yesterday at my local Gamestop and get the LAST COPY! Boy, I am so happy I bought this game! Up until Batman Begins the game, None of the other ones gave the Dark Knight justice. This game rocks! When I get an extra $20, I am buying Arkham City and after selling one of my guitars, pre-ordering Arkham Orgins. How about you buy this game now, you wont regret it. It's only $13, what a steal.
Because I'm in it!
This game is BEAST (mostly because I AM IN IT!!)! The creators made me look sexy >:). Anyway, the graphics are beautiful, the cutscenes are so crisp, and the fighting style..... MAGNIFICENT! Any and ALL Batman fans will enjoy this one! Don't get me started on the awesome soundtrack!
