I too am tempted to label this game as "definitive"; it's easily, quite clearly, almost overwhelmingly, THE best Batman game to date and better than some of the movies. You get to play Batman from a third or more second person perspective, which works great for the game. The gameplay is very well designed with full freedom to move and look around; you never feel inhibited in your exploration of the island. Even when you're gliding from place to place, you have control of the character, not game-imposed limitations of perspective or design. In addition to henchmen, escaped lunatics, and the more celebrated inmates to take down, there are many riddles to solve, and island secrets to discover, that will keep you busy for many, many hours of fun - even more if you don't use Riddler's maps.
Since it's only set at Arkham Asylum, engrossing as that may be, I can't exactly call the game definitive. But, the flexible RPG freedom should serve as the model for future Batman games, for sure. The graphics are terrific as well, especially character graphics. I did get the sense that disc compression may have been optimized for the limitations of the XBox version, rather than the PS3's BD disc capacity, which is 5x more roomy than DVD, as blocking and posterization are noticably problematic from time to time. But, the graphics still looked great overall, even at the unforgiving front projection screen size I played on. I also appreciated the decision to include a brightness adjustment for aligning your display's calibration with the unique disc encode without having to blindly adjust your TV settings themselves - I wish all games (and movies for that matter) would include the same.
My only real criticism of the game is with the bosses. Most were just far too easy, especially The Scarecrow, which also suffered a very limited remote perspective play style that was completely out of place with the rest of the game. Even if Batman was supposed to be under the influence of fear toxin, it still felt a little lazy. I personally feel that having clearly defined boss stages, where you're trapped in a room against some tough opponent is more cheaply unimaginitive than homage to games of yesteryear. To me, such limited flexibility in gameplay isn't nearly as fun as the RPG type style that the majority of this game conforms to. That is unless it's done really well like in Uncharted 2, where you don't even associate the challenge as being a boss type stage.
So, the game isn't pefect. For parents who might be reading, it's also not very appropriate for young audiences. But for Batman fans old enough to handle death and a foul word or two and who are able to forgive the gameplays few inconsistencies, this game is simply one you have to play through at least once - it's that good. While it's definitely more challenging at the hard difficulty, the story and dialogue isn't quite as interesting on my second pass though, unlike Uncharted 2, which after 3 plays through the storymode, was still just as fun for the story and script alone. Maybe if I set it aside for a few months, it'll seem fresh again - though by then part two should be knocking at the door. Can't wait!
When Joker says that line over the loudspeaker outside Arkham Asylum, I almost died laughing. "Hello kiddies! It's your Uncle J!" You just have to love The Joker, and he's reason enough for you to buy this game.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is a watershed moment for the Dark Knight himself. It's truly a fantastic game with a superb storyline. The graphics and cinematics are splendidly done. The FreeFlow combat system is pretty ingenious, albeit a bit too easy to use. Batman also has a vast plethora of gadgets available at your disposal to kick some serious thug *ss.
What prevented me from giving Arkham Asylum a stellar 5-star review was the fact that not enough villains were included in the game. I would've loved to see the Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, and the Riddler in the flesh (or the pixels, in this case). I also felt that there should have been more boss fights. The Titan henchmen were sort of lame, and you just fight Bane, Poison Ivy, and Joker as the three main villains. I don't count Zsasz and Harley Quinn, since their demise was pathetic.
I also found the Challenge Maps to be quite repetitive and optional at best. For those of you who are all into getting every single trophy in the game, you may want to take a look at the Challenge Maps, but they're not necessary. Finding every Riddler Trophy and riddle in the game is also purely an option, but they add a little spice to the fiesta.
Is the game a must-buy for your PS3? YES, but I'd suggest only buying it if you're into Batman to begin with.
I decided to take the chance and got a ps3 with this game. I had played it before for PC, and i was hooked since then. Amazon sent me an e-mail, today only, Batman Arkham asylum..26.99..and i knew it was the moment. I won't go into details, if you like Batman you will love this game. Great story, great graphics. Probably the best Batman or superhero game there is. It takes sometime getting used to the control, but once you do you are unstoppable. The only thing that bothers me (the game and the ps3 being new), is something at the beginning of the first cutscene. You see the bat sign in the sky, and then the camera slowly comes down, you see an angel statue ( or somethin like that) the scene doesnt freeze completely and there is no audio loss, but when the statue comes to view, it like pauses for 2 seconds or so, i have restarted the game several times and it always does the same. It does it like 3 times. I have seen walkthrough videos on youtube, and that scene flows beautifully. Is it the game or my ps3?. I'd hate to think it's a defect, since everything is brand new. I'm playing it in a standard tv with standard AV cables (red, white, yellow)...Im planning to get a 32 inch lcd with hdmi cable..see what happens. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Depite this FLAW, the game is awesome. I'm anxiously waiting for the new CASTLEVANIA
Initially, there was only one reason I got this game: Mark Hamill and most of the cast from the 1990s Batman Animated Series had been signed on to do the voices. I'm sure this was the case for most people, because all of the voice actors for that show were absolutely amazing. Did that sense of immersion that came from having the voices be incredibly well-done make the game that much better? I'd say so.
But in addition to that, we were also presented with a very solid game coded on a slick graphics engine. The mechanics and were almost never vague or obfuscating, at times they were even too simple (such that it felt like handholding). That is my only real gripe with the game, that while it was a very enjoyable experience there was a lack of challenge and tension to it. Everything was so well scripted and planned out that it didn't give the player much time to flounder about and try to feel like they were really solving those puzzles in true Dark Knight Detective fashion.
Im a huge fan of batman ever since i was a teen. What makes him a superhero is his intellect and skill. In this game that all plays out. It's a great story and great cinema with it. This game is very addicting I even missed this past weekends NFL playoffs playing this game. A no no for me. The game can be a bit easy at some points and very challenging at others. But this game really does give you a great feel in being batman. I just wish he had a few better weapons. He needed a smoke bomb or something in those rooms with the armed thugs. It's a great game and really shows off the graphics of the ps3. Definately a must buy for a ps3 owner...
Really makes the fans of the Batman animated series really happy. They took this game and made it into a game, this is in my opinion worthy of being one of the games of the year. It has a great storyline and development and of course a great set of characters. Bringing back the original voices of Joker and Batman from the 90s animated series was a great move. My only dissappointment was I wish the game was a little longer, but it was in depth and had you thinking at all times. I am looking forward to the sequel and hope it delivers the same action and suspense as this game did.
I played the down loadable demo some time ago. Really liked it. Saw it super cheap on one of Amazon's black Friday deals and I pounced. So very happy with the price I paid. Graphically this a nice looking game, best looking PS3 game I have seen since MGS4. The gameplay is a little too easy for my tastes. Mash the attack button and Batman pretty much does all the combos automatically. A little to mindless and easy for my taste. Would have preferred a more grown-up M rated version of this game. Oh yeah and I actually own this game and I am not getting paid to write bogus reviews.
I came into this game expecting it to be good. Plus the fact you can play as Batman was very cool. And I was not disappointed. The GRPAHICS-Beautiful, except you play most of the game using Bat-vision which makes about every level the exact same looking. But once you take the Bat-vision off, wow, all the areas and graphics are great. And Batman couldn't look better. The bosses look great also, nice and big. The GAMEPLAY-Very fun. It's basically Metal Gear dressed up as Batman. And the fighting is very easy and once you get a hang of it, is really fun. You use a lot of Batmans gadgets which are cool, except for a couple that really don't do much of anything. But the gameplay is fun, you can hang upside down and take a guy out. OVERALL-A very cool Batman game that no Batman fan can pass up. It's fun and worth every penny.
Great game for those that are looking for a good Batman story with great visuals and adjustable difficulty. The extras and collectibles in game keep you hunting in Detective Mode well after the story completes. At times it feels as though you're being led through the action by the hand, and button mashing can get your through the handtohand combat, but a deep combo system is in place for those who wish to engage it, and the game is satisfying thanks to great controls, visuals and voice acting.
