this game blew my mind and its not because of the great graphics but by how they use every element of batman like great detactive work by folowing dna aroud to find the hostage. plus the great tools u use to stop baddies or break through walls even turn off security. the 2 best things are the amazing story and the best combat in game history just to flow from one guy to another by doing flips and jumps. now the story by now u should know the joker takes over and u have to stop him but the most fun of the story is the riddler doing all of his stuff will hours and they are fun but trust me they will make u mad.

A reviewer at gamespot said it was the Bioshock of 2009 and they were right. I loved the environment of that game and this is just as eerie and cool. The controls are easy and smooth, the joker and boss mobs are intense looking..can you say scarecrow!!!
I love the trivia fact about each character such as first appearance of the the characters and what comic/issue # they were in.
NO other comic book superhero game even comes CLOSE to the quality of this release...period!
Rent it or better yet BUY IT.
I smell game of the year here. The only game gonna even come close is CODMW2

Let me start off with wow! If third person action games get your heart pumping then don't miss out on this title. So many comic book based games have fallen by the wayside but this Batman is stellar. The gameplay is intuitive and engrossing. All of the batman comic book characters are here at arkham asylum and the story behind each one is unlockable as you play the game. The control scheme is good and the slow motion finishing moves are awesome. It's a little hard to get used to using the right trigger and Y button to finish a downed opponent but overall the button layout is good. There are a few minor camera flaws but this is just nitpicking. The gadgets that you use like the explosive gel are satisfying and there is nothing better than spraying a downed enemy with gel and watching his buddy come over to help and blowing them both up! The game has a lot of depth with challenge modes and an enormous amount of riddler's puzzles that you can solve. For a game with no multiplayer there is a lot of replay value. (I hear that downloadable content may be added for more replay. That would be awesome!) This game is a must add to your Q and definetely worth a buy.
