Finally, a comic book game based on Batman that's truly a fun and fantastic adventure has arrived on the scene. Rocksteady Studios was just known for Urban Chaos prior to Batman: Arkham Asylum but after this game they're going to be a pretty big name....

Batman Arkham Asylum

 

Batman: Arkham Asylum veers tantalizingly close to the consummate video game experience, falls just short enough to make you pine for a sequel.

Not based on any Batman movie, Batman: Arkham Asylum is instead an entirely original tale set in a prison compound for the criminally insane. A large island fortress peppered by multiple structural facilities of the decidedly high-tech Gothic...

Best Batman game ever.

Obviously Rocksteady felt pretty confident that they had something special with both the combat and stealth sections, as both of those make up the entirety of the unlockable challenges. The stealth, or predator challenges are timed events, usually with...

Atari Batman: Arkham Asylum

 

When all hell breaks loose at Arkham Asylum, Batman must join the inmates and fight for his own sanity.

Excellent story, Impressive graphics, Innovative gameplay, Voiced by Animated series actors, lots of fun to play

Tend to use detectve mode too much, travelling all over the island can get tedious

Batman: Arkham Asylum

 

About midway through my completion of Batman: Arkham Asylum I had to pop the controller down for an hour or so and go out to complete some menial everyday task. I'd just gotten around to thinking ‘that's a touch inconvenient, I was just at a really...

Batman: Arkham Asylum

 

While other superheroes merely catch the crooks and then parade around with smug smirks, Batman goes out of his way to get inside the criminal mind and twist it into submission; that alone makes him one of my favourite comic book characters. Similarly,...

Art direction, variety of stealth tactics, spectacular moments, addictive challenge maps, accessible controls, collectible riddles

Rote melee combat, dull stock opponents, recycled bosses, some throwaway upgrades, precious few super-villains

Finally, a Batman game worthy of the taking on the mantle. It's been a long time coming but they really hit one out of the park here. Stylish and wonderfully executed, Arkham Asylum is a visual marvel.
