Batman: Arkham Asylum

Recommended Posts

As the old topic is somewhere in Off-Topic and kind of dead, I thought I'd make a new one.

Downloaded the demo and this is by far the best game I've played this year. Everything is brilliant - the combat, the atmosphere, the characters. It lifts the best bits from the comics and films and is smart enough and varied enough that it becomes far more than just a beat 'em up.

What did you guys think?

So I got it Tuesday, but haven't had much time to play it :( It's been good so far, looking forward to the weekend. I just wish all superhero games, whether I play them or not, can take a lesson from this game and come out with innovative gameplay instead of cashing in on summer blockbusters.

Got the game now, and I love it. It incorporates so many elements of so many good games and adds Batman.

And Scarecrow is amazing. Actually terrifying. Seriously.

The demo actually turned me off the game. I thought the combat system relied to much on the X button. My cousin absolutly loves it, allthough he is a diehard, fanatical Batman fan.

The combat is one of the best parts of this game, it's excellent.

The (X) button can be chained with (B+Y) to create new combos that combine counters, reversals, heavy attacks & gadgets. You unlock more and upgrade your skills as the game goes on, it only gets better.

The demo drops you at the start of the game, at this time the combat is still fairly basic, yet still fun and cool looking. I wouldn't judge such an awesome game based on a demo of the first 10 minutes.

Played the Demo and thought: Amazing

I think Batman: Arkham Asylum could be a very interesting title this year, and i'm going to buy it tomorrow.

The only thing that's a little bit bad, is that only the PS3 users can play as

the Joker.
