Welcome To The Madhouse! Review with images

AdvantagesA new improved combat system, some challenging puzzles and riddles!

DisadvantagesMissing some of the best characters from other Batman games!

"== BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM == There have been a lot of Batman games but most of them seem to never really do well overall but along came this one. Batman Arkham Asylum is a fantastic game and it really shows how good a Batman game can actually turn out. Batman Arkham Asylum is an action adventure game that also features stealth elements and to be perfectly honest the stealth part of the game actually does work really well and its very impressive.

BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM

AdvantagesORIGNINALITY/GAMEPLAY/STORY

DisadvantagesNONE NOTICABLE

"BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM ======================== This game begins with a nice stroll through Arkham corridors as you escort the Joker to his cell. But as always Batman is suspicious and isn’t surprised when he breaks his restraints and begins the most epic jailbreak in game history. Within 10 minutes of starting the Joker and his girlfriend Harley Quinn begin to liberate some of Gothams most lethal and crazed baddies. But apart from wanting revenge ..." Read review

Great value for money Batman entertainment

AdvantagesGood gameplay mechanics, Good length storyline, Amazing graphics

DisadvantagesOccasionally the gameplay can get a little bit repetitive

"== Introduction == Batman Arkham Asylum is a action adventure video game that was released in August 2009. It was developed by Rocksteady Studios and released by Eidos Interactive. The last time that we saw a Batman game that was simulator to Arkham Asylum was in 2005 with the game called Batman Begins, that was released for the original Xbox and Playstation 2. That was released last generation and I think that Arkham Asylum is a major improvement. == ..." Read review

The BAT

AdvantagesGameplay and graphics

Disadvantagesnone that i can think off

"This game starts of with an excellent clip of batman escorting the one and only joker back to the Asylum but what seemed strange is that he basically give himself up. As this is the batman we are talking about he has his suspicions and decides to follow the joker as he is getting escorted to his room in the Asylum. On your way to his room you bump into another arch-enemy who is being escorted and this is just the beginning. You will encounter a lot ..." Read review

The Dark Knight does it again

AdvantagesStorytelling - Graphics - Voice Acting - Combat - Stealth - Everything a Batman game should be

DisadvantagesOccasionally the game is a little too easy

"After all the success the Christoper Nolan movies have had in the last few years it was only a matter of time before the Dark Knight made the leap to your games console. And what a leap it has been! Not only has Arkham Asylum exceeded expectations but it has raised the bar for movie video game adaptions and in fact video games in general. The game follows the story of The Joker as he escapes capture once again to take control of Arkham Asylum itself. ..." Read review

Batman is back and better than ever

AdvantagesGreat story, Amazing voice acting, You feel like the batman

Disadvantageslip syncing, some minor bugs

"Superhero games have the unfortunate reputation of being terrible games. People didn't think Arkham Asylum would be good but Rocksteady (the developers) assured them this would be different. In Batman Arkham Asylum, you play as Batman. You go to Arkham Island to escort the Joker to his prison cell; little do you know that the Joker is actually luring you into a trap. Once you take him to Arkham Asylum, the Joker gets free and releases all the inmates, ..." Read review

Join the criminally insane in Arkham Asylum...

Advantages. Detailed graphics, unique story, and a decent lengthened game. Oh and you play as Batman

DisadvantagesNo real multiplayer...

"Once again, Batman steps from the shadows to deliver a truly enjoyable game. Not being a Batman fanboy, I probably wouldn't usually pick up this kind of game. However, I could see that the graphics were fantastic, the story seemed intriguing and you get to play as Batman himself. Awesome or what? For all the fanboys out there, don't despair, as the producers in the game have included a great deal of detail on the Batman world from the comics. There ..." Read review

The only time you want to be locked in an asylum

AdvantagesTruly immersive experience, good combat system, great voice acting

DisadvantagesChallenge mode is kind of pointless, Boss battles could have been much challenging

"The real test to a game based on a comic book superhero is what do the fanboys make of it. All the fanboys i know have loved it i am so glad they did not make the Dark Knight tie-in as that would have ruined the chances of this game being made, and without this game, my life leading up to Modern Warfare 2 being launched would have been very very very boring. I am not the biggest Batman fan but i have loved the new movies and had really high hopes ..." Read review

Are you Ready to Be the Dark Knight?

AdvantagesDeep gameplay, amazing graphics, brilliant fight enigne, complex puzzles, massive game

DisadvantagesMaybe too easy for very experienced gamers, not sure about multiplayer elements

"Batman: Arkham Asylum is quite simply the closest you are ever going to get to experiencing what it must be like to be the Dark Knight - and here I have intentionally avoided saying Batman as I want to be clear that in this game you play the truly dark, menacing version of Batman from the Dark Knight comic series. There is no doubt in this game you are as hard as nails and you know it - there is no camp bravado or wimpy sidekicks with this Batman, ..." Read review

Finally a Batman game, trully worth playing.

AdvantagesThe graphics and storyline are superb. Relativly long and well structured.

DisadvantagesPoor downloadable content, nothing really to makeyou want to play the game again.

"I was sceptical about this game when I first bought it, I had high hopes after seeing the trailers. But as a rule, games like this involving superheroes have been quite bad. You should begin this game with an open mind, forget any past perceptions you had of this franchises quite awful predecessors. And begin the game as though, it is a new one. Upon playing the demo, I could tell immediately that this was to be a very good game. The freeflow combat ..." Read review

Batman Arkham Asylum, Immerse yourself in the world of Batman.

Advantagesincredible combat, amazing voice acting, good graphics, makes you feel like a part of the game.

Disadvantagesslightly too short

"This game is fantastic., its a true great, and theres only one game right now that I can think of that can top this, and thats Batman Arkham City, which goes to show just how great this game really is. The gameplay of this game is really fun and addictive, Rocksteady are constantly being praised for their flowing combat mechanism, which keeps the action consistently moving and allowing the player, to enjoy every punch they throw. To put it in a nutshell, ..." Read review

Batman Arkham Asylum (360)

AdvantagesGreat graphics, Long gameplay and fantastic voice overs.

DisadvantagesJoker missions is a PS3 exclusive

"Batman Arkham Asylum takes batman back to its dark roots. No longer are you simply running around punching and kicking baddies with a 'thud' and a 'pow'. In this game you will need to stay hidden in an effort to avoid become the focal point of the Jokers henchmen! With its 8 hours of game-play and plenty of extras, including finding all the riddles little puzzles this game will keep you busy for a very long time. The graphics are spot on and the voice ..."

Amazing game! Well worth it!

AdvantagesThe graphics and storyline are superb, the fight scenes flow really well and music is good

DisadvantagesCan get a little annoying when you're constantly running back to previous areas to solve riddles

"There's no doubt that almost everyone out there has heard of Batman! And who wouldn't want to play as the Dark Knight and beat Joker nine ways of Sunday! That's what this game gives you and more! The graphics are incredible, the music is creepy and dark, and each one of the many characters you encounter are done so well. It feels somewhat like a movie at times, and the storyline is so well written, you just want to keep playing to find out what's ..." Read review

Batman Arkham Asylum is fantastic

AdvantagesGameplay, graphics, story

DisadvantagesSize, lack of multiplayer

"Batman Arkham Asylum is one of my favorite games that I would recommend to any fan of the DC Universe. The story mode is outstanding and the voice acting is incredible. The only downside to this game is the lack of multiplayer and the size of the maps. But nonetheless I thought the story was very original and a great kick off to awesome series. The way the villains of the story are introduced is also very cool. The riddler challenges are also very ..." Read review

Advantageseasy to play, gadgets, batman experience,

Disadvantagesnone

"The long awaited Batman Arkham asylum is here, when I first heard the emmy award winning Paul Dini wrote the storyline for this game, I knew I wasn’t expecting just another mindless button bashing experience, the story starts with the joker being transported to Arkham Asylum and immediately you get the sense that this batman will be a lot darker and spookier than previous titles, Gadgets we got to mention batarangs explosive gels and a whole host ..."
