Story: 3 out of 5
You really don't play this game because of the story. The story wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. It was pretty fun to see a lot of Gotham's villains. The story was forgettable, but with the awesome gameplay you don't care.
Difficulty: 4.5 out of 5
I played only on hard difficulty, but it was challenging at parts. The achievements/ trophies were VERY HARD. You can split the achievements into story and challenge. The story ones are mostly collectable achievements. The collectable achievements can be collected after the final boss is defeated, so none are missable.
The challenge ones are divided into stealth and combat. The combat achievements are some of the hardest I have ever earned (I have almost 70,000 gamerscore)
Gameplay: 5 out of 5
The gameplay was very exciting. You really felt like Batman. You get to use 8 different gadgets and 9 different combat moves to pummel the Joker's henchmen. There is something very satisfying about using a grapple.
Replayability: Not really
Graphics/ Music: 4.5 out of 5
Overall: 9 out of 10
This game won Game of the Year for a reason! The gameplay is addicting and there is plenty of collectables and challenges to keep you busy for a while. If you are at all interested in Arkham Asylum, RENT IT NOW!!!! You will not be disappointed.
