Arkham Asylum is in riot. After the Joker masterfully takes control of the facility for the criminally insane and threatens to blow up Gotham City with hidden bombs, it is now up to Batman to enter Arkham and stop Joker from executing his insane plans. However, Batman's mission will not be easy. An entire rogue's gallery full of Batman's enemies now freely roam in the revolting Arkham Asylum, from Bane to Killer Croc to Scarecrow.

In this revolutionary action-stealth title, players control the Dark Knight, and infiltrate Arkham Asylum to put down fiendish villains as they attempt to break out and take over Gotham City. Featuring brawl-style combat action and stealth takedowns, players can terrorize the bad guys with a flair that epitomizes the Dark Knight of Gotham.

This was one of the first Batman Games I played. It was fun, and a challenge at the same time no matter if you played on easy mode or hard mode. Plus the continutation into the Batman story was just epic. The mechanics could be a bit iffy at times but not the worst thing out there. What really sells the game for me is that they brought back the Batman the Animated Series cast to repraise their roles (for the most part) so you can't go wrong with Mark Hamill's Joker.

I was hell-bent on getting this game when it was announced. The first time I played, I was not disappointed. It probably helped that I'm a huge fan of the character. The battle system was top-notch, and the ability to lock on to enemies during battle was a nice touch. I had a little bit of trouble with the gliding, but that's nothing that can't be solved without a bit of practice. If you are a fan of the original cartoon from the 90s, fans can rejoice in the fact that Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voice their respective characters once again. I felt like I was reliving my childhood when I played this game.

This game is amazing. The graphics are top notch, especially when showing the environment. It's dark and mysterious captivating the turmoil Gotham City usually finds itself in. The controls are perfect in which Batman is able to easily lock onto his targets in battles. The boss battles are exciting and, for the most part, the map was easy to navigate. If you love Batman and button mashing, this is a great game to play!

Finally a game that did Batman justice! I am a huge Batman fan and all his amazing feats. When I saw the trailer of this game, I literally was giddy like a school girl on her first date. When I finally played, it surpassed my already stellar expectations. The game puts you in batman's shoes as the caped crusader bashing criminals to a pulp, the worlds greatest detective piecing together crime scenes and my personal favorite, interrogation. This game captures the environment, the graphics and all the kick ass action that made for an awesome experience. This is a must play for all.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is simply put, a triumph of gaming. Boasting spectacular game design, excellent puzzles, fantastic graphics, respect for the source material, and most importantly fun. It is fun. Let us all try to remember a time when games were supposed to be fun and not just bland bullet plus dude equals game.

Batman Arkham Asylum is a perfect example of Rocksteady’s quality regarding to game making. This tittle took all the elements of sandbox games and mix them with a classic and iconic superhero as Batman. Bringing an adventure that the gamer enjoys in many ways, for example visually, game mechanics and also picking characters of the Dark Knight Universe such as Catwoman or Robin. Even allows you to face the most important villains like The Joker, Bane, The Penguin, The Riddler, etc. The music is wonderful and I can forget about detective mode that allows you to find useful hints that help you to progress in all the levels. A “must-play” for gamers and Batman fans as well.

I remember being so excited to play this game once I saw the trailer. I was perhaps even more excited when I actually played it. It felt like I was actually Batman. Atmosphere was dark, as expected. Every character was excellent with their dialogue. Batman fans must play this game.

Arkham Asylum brings the darkest side of Batman. And this is the side that we are all interested in. The story has a nice twist early which makes players hooked. New comers may have some time to adjust to the weird close camera, but will get the hang of it. This game has one of the best and most simple fighting systems ever that simulate real life martial art fighting and combos and the story is both great for Batman Veteran and newbies to the comic series. Enjoy! I did :)

Far and above the best Batman game at the time of it’s release. A button Masher that is enjoyable for novice gamers or hardcore fans willing to realize the full potential of the fighting mechanics. Never has a game done captured the brooding tones of the Dark Knight so well.

"I'm Batman!", you all know this iconic line and probably replay it in your head with the gritty voice to match. If you really want to feel like the Batman, get this game. It'll be the closest you'll get to knocking around bad guys at night.

Batman Arkham Asylum has changed the way gamers have viewed superhero games! This set the bar for the different superhero franchises and superseded our expectations. Overall, this game has a very dark and captivating theme which includes Batman's detective and sneaking skills. Not to mentioned the different gadgets he has to conquer each villian. This is really a must play for any gamer, Batman fan or not. This game is in line with any other modern game.

Batman Arkham Asylum is a wonderful game, the combat system is really amazing, the story couldn't be better, this a very classic game with good graphics, a perfect mix of action, stealth, and puzzle. Batman brings a lot of innovating aspects for his time in game-play and many other aspects. Who doesn't like to play as a superhero?. This game is probably one of the best game I've ever played.
