What can I say that will do justice to this game? From beginning to end this game was excellent; the action was flawless and entertaining. The hidden surprises and little comments from the Joker and other characters through out the game were definitely worth the price of admission. The way Batman changes through the game was something to take notice of as well; from tattered bat suit to actually growing a beard; this is one of the most visually stunning and carefully thought out games in a while. The combos are the coolest ones I have seen from any game, just a little advice though.....upgrade your batsuit fully before any other upgrades. Worth a rating of 11 if I could give it one :)

Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of the most unique games I have ever played. Everything about it was good in almost every way... It was a great blend of Gears of War (Because of the Unreal engine) and Bioshock. From the beginning, to the "end" (not counting unlockables) I never found myself bored. However... you may find yourself lost in the labrinth known as Arkham Asylum two or three times, but thats what the "kinda useful" map is for.
Note: This is not a kids game FYI to the people that "dont like it because its not rated M" Its very dark and gloomy and Scarecrow is awesome... in my opinion he is cooler than Joker.
This game was amazing, the only thing that stopped me from rating this a perfect 10 was the repetitiveness of the game. Other then that its exactly how a bat man game should be. From being the ultimate detective to the most dangerous superhero without a super power, this game has it all. It is a must rent if not a must own game will definitely be a classic!
