One of the best super hero video games ever
Its fun, challenges, like a puzzle maze, and face through toughest villians and thugs espcially killer croc ! its most best super hero game i've ever played in my life don't turn this game down its just simply AMAZING !!!!!!
Awesome game. Great graphics. Buy this game and i guarantee you will love it. Just a great game for everyone
Its not a kid game.
Batman is back and much darker in batman arkham asylum. In this game you play as the dark knight himself, and try to take back control of arkham asylum from the evil yet awesome joker. As you do this you will fight a few villans like: poisin ivy, scarecrow, my favorite killer croc, and of course harley quinn and the joker in his plot to make a super steroid army. As you go on you will learn that this game was not made for children. 1 reason is the challenge. This game is incrediblly difficult and requires alot of attention and paitence. 2 The violence and lots of it . However there are some things i didnt like. 1 the riddlers riddles just end up throwing you of track of your main objective. 2 unfortunatlly this game can become a button masher in hand to hand combat. All things considerd though the game is stunning. The graphics are almost too realistic if thats possible, And the seperate bat missions like the stealth modes will keep you playing long after the story mode.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is nothing less than a masterpiece. The graphics are beautifully detailed, the combat is amazing, and so addicting. The story is written by Paul Dini, the voice of Joker is Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), and Batman is played by Kevin Conroy. The game is set in Arkham Asylum when Joker is caught by Batman, and Batman brings him to the Asylum. Joker escapes, and takes control of the Asylum.Freeing all the inmates, and it's up to you to stop Joker, you get to utilize Batman's gadgets, detective skills, and combat abilities. You face the best of Batman's villains including: Bane, Killer Croc, Scare Crow, Harley Quinn, and more. In short this game is amazing.

When I bought this game I knew it would be a decent game because the demo was great. After playing it almost non-stop for the past day and a half I can say that it was even better than I expected. It makes you think so that there is a challenge, but not too much of a challenge. The graphics are incredible, and the sound effects are awesome, the characters voices are very well done. The storyline is also quite interesting how the joker has his "plans", and how all of the characters from the batman cartoons play into the story. The fighting in this game is totaly incredible and easy to use. There are so many different moves that batman can do and they are all really cool. You can also silently kill enemies by coming behind them or you can use a bathook to get on a roof of a building and do a gliding kick to an enemy catching him by suprise. There are sooo many different things you can do in this game. This is one of the best games I have ever played and I recommend you go get it right now!
Can't put it down
Very few games keep my attention and this one I can play for hours. I only put it on pause to post this review -- gotta get back to it. ;)
First Great Game In Years
When I first saw that Batman Arkham Asylum was coming out, I though this was just going to be another arcade fighter with good graphics. My opinion quickly changed after I saw the first trailer. I knew this game was going to be great. When it came out, I rushed to buy it and put it in my system. I was amazed. The visuals are great, the story line is vast and dynamic, it keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Unlike other games of its genre, you cannot just break out and attack enemies, you need to pick enemies off one by one and be as stealthy as the "Dark Knight". There are many gadgets that you can unlock throughout the game, and as another bonus you can upgrade you gadgets. The immersive story line is VERY exciting and keeps you eyes glued to the screen. There are challenges, trophies, character files, and riddles to go along.To say the least, this not your average action game. If you even slightly like batman this is the game for you, it is worth the $** price tag it comes with.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is an amazing game. Nearly everything about it was great. The only thing that was bad about the graphics is that some of the lip-synching is off. But other than that this game is near perfect. The combat in Arkham Asylum is spot- on, stealth sequences are beyond fun, and the boss battles aren't very hard. The only draw back in the gameplay is that during the stealth sequences, when you're having so much fun stalking one of Joker's goons, you realize that you've been doing it for the past hour. So, yeah, it's too much fun. Also, the game's plot is pretty good. The setting in the game is dark and spooky. Especially, in the second half of the game. Also, this is one of those games that gets harder and harder as you progress through the story. Overall, this game is spectacular. I didn't even tell you about the extremely awesome scarecrow sequences or some of the cool upgrades that you can purchase. I would give this game a ten.
Batman is my new #1
The most unique combat system I've ever experienced. Free flow combat...great idea, and great job executing it. Graphics are great, the story is great, and the interactions are great. This is the first Batman game where Batman is truly Batman. And his enemies are truly themselves as well. I hated the old 60's Batman because he wasn't nearly a "Dark Knight". And we all hated the "GEE WILLIKERS!" Robin as well. They modernized Batman's world to the fullest and made him a role model of heroes. I cannot wait for Batman: Arkham City to come out. I know they added lots of things and the story will be just as good. I almost thought that Robin would be annoying and corny as he usually was, however they seemed to finally have made him to be worthy of Batman's sidekick. They also added lots of Batman villians (and villianesses ;) ) to the story. Until that comes out, and even when it does, Batman: Arkham Asylum is a must for everyone. Even ones who aren't the biggest fans of the Bat. I became one because of the recent movies and this game. :)
So when I bought this I figured it would be just another superhero game (Spiderman 3, Superman Returns, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, ect.) but in fact, it was much more. Arkham Asylum was a superhero game, a fighting game, a detective game, and a mystery all in one. Arkam Asylum also teaches you alot about the DC Universe, The plot of the game is that when Batman takes the Joker into custody without hardly even a fight he gets worried that he is up to something. Despite his suspicions he takes the Joker to Arkam Asylum, There the Batman accompanies him almost all the way to his cell but when he reaches a point where only Arkam employees are allowed he must stay behind. Once Batman is out of the picture the Joker breaks free of the guards and escapes deep into Arkam while Batman is in pursuit of him. During his pursuit Batman battles many old enemies and must save some friends. All in all this game is very fun to play and you will also get a good "education" in the DC world.
