5 stars "Batman every Batfans dream come true"

Purchased the Batman Collectors edition and never thought twice about it. A week or less and I pretty much put across sometime the past few days to playing this game because it was that addictive!! I couldnt believe the atmosphere, gameplay, storyline and all around adaptation of this new installment of the Dark Knight embodies everything Batman trully is to all batfans.

Just finished the game this evening (couldnt believe id finished it since it felt everything happened so quickly) while the credits were rolling I just had a smile and sat in awe everything you could wish for as a fan came true. The developers really put themselves in our shoes and created a world through the eyes of Batman should really be and for every fans childhood hero to really shine.

Now before i ramble too much about all the praises and acknowledgement this game deserves, if you wanted good gameplay and great graphics with no aimless button mashing then do not overlook this game even if your not a batfan! The combat system just blew me away the dynamics of it make it look so complex on screen YET SIMPLISTIC. Unbelievable how you can have so much fun utilising combat moves at the touch of a button yet timing is everything and spectators will be dazzled by your acrobatic ala matrix manneoveres, every person will love it =). This is what I call intuitive gameplay at its finest, you'll even feel like Batman (LOL peeps will know exactly what I mean after any fighting situations) :P

Now where would Batman be without his trademark utility belt? As you progress through the game you pick up your usual unlockable upgrades as well as new arsenal of gadgets you have at your disposal well executed at introducing new ones as you progress through the game to have fun with and your put in the shoes of the Dark Knight so utilising each is crucial and there are key moments in the game where your wits and quick thinking will have to be on par! It all contributes to making you really feel like your Batman knocking out scum like rubbish, gliding down clifftops, dangling like a bat on gargoyles and using your utility belt which is your life saver

I loved how the Batmobile and Batplane as well as a few villains made cameos along this game ( I wont spoil it for you but it just adds to the countless benefits the developers created just for us!)

The storyline is well thought out and although you do go back and forth (which some view as a negative having to backtrack to areas of the game youve already been to) theyve made this more of an attraction due to the fact that there are secret items left by the riddler that give you more unlockables that you could not reach before i.e Using the batclaw to rip down a wall or blowing out a hollow wall to collect more riddlers items (dont worry even though there are over 200 they are all highlighted on your map, so this game never leaves you completely lost while not spoon feeding you to a total advantage).

Although one could say every batfan is bias towards stating that this game is amazing you probably would get the contrast with them being the most clinical reviewers and the reviews speak volumes about this game!! I do not see any negatives about this game at all except its far too short :P :).

We are blessed with the voice acting cast from the memorable animated batman series group who alot are in this game (and Im really glad as a kid I enjoyed Kevin Conroy playing Batman since he does a fantastic job at it, as well as Mark Hamill aka Joker and the rest of the villains etc). Great contribution to a strong movie like storyline

This game is engineered to perfection:-

You want espionage aka Metal gear solid youve got it here

You want action packed beat-em up aka Dynasty warriors youve got it here

You want captivating graphics and storyline filled with intrigue and puzzle solving aka Resident Evil youve got it here

The collaboration of these respected games aspects do exist in Batman Arkham Asylum- through strategic planning and mastered storyline = One of the best games to ever bless the PS3 so far, and ive played various Playstation games in my time to put this up in my top 10 of all time no worries.

Classic for your PS3 shelf? most definetely!!!!

5 stars "The Best Game"

Batman Arkham Asylum is probably one of the best games I have played in a while. Graphics are awesome, storey is really good and the character's are flawless. The joker is really psycotic, right up there with Heath Ledger's Joker and now my favourite villian of all time. Batman is defanitly the coolest Batman in a video game that I have ever seen.
There is so much to do in this game, heaps of stuff to collect and all the challenges in challenge mode will keep you going for a while.
I also like how the game vary's in style, like there is heaps of fighting, but also the stealth side of it and detective side with puzzle solving included is a real nice touch.
I would highly recommend this game to anyone.

5 stars "SO MUCH FUN!"

Had such a blast playing through this one! The detective work and challenges held my interest captive so I had no choice but to play, play, and play!

The other modes offer more gaming time even if you've finished the main story so the fun really doesn't stop!

Bone-breaking Batman beats down baddies to a pulp with the awesome battle buttoning system that makes you feel like a pro!

5 stars "Batman who is Intelligent and Ruthless"

Damn this game is superb! Its the first game I got and well…at first I wasn't too sure of the game and put it of for a week. I'm mostly into Sports games and some action like the Devil May Cry Series so naturally I wasn't looking forward to it.

Luckily my Cousin puts the Batman game into the PS3 because he got bored playing Madden 2010 and even though it started of slowly this game got me hooked. It did fool me by not having the typical superhero beat-em-up gamestyle which was one of the reasons I didn't look forward to it but instead you have to think twice before approaching the enemy.

So this is not your average superhero game it combines intelligent, ruthless efficiency and silent gameplay. The great thing I like about this game is his x-ray like vision he has which enables you to scan the area and plan your next attack, also many of his all time enemies are back which do not ruin.

“A Must Buy!!!”

5 stars "Fantastic Experience"

It's so hard to sum up a good game, so I'll just have to break it down why I so readily recommend Batman: Arkham Asylum: the gameplay, plot and visuals, and how they work together.

The standard gameplay is terrific. Common fights against groups of enemies employ a simple yet challenging approach: only a few buttons and moves are needed, yet in order to gain the most of these opportunities for experience (used to purchase additional moves and powerups) the player must skillfully manage the timing and choices of the actions they choose. On top of this ‘standard’ gameplay are other elements which add to an immersive experience. A major one is the ability to turn on or off ‘detective’ mode (allowing the player to see clues, enemies and opportunities). Following a chemical trail may guide you to the next area, and checking on enemies' heartrates will give you a clue as to how they will react to your presence as individuals and as a group (nervous enemies will check the environment more readily as they try to find you, calm ones will be easier to sneak up on). The ability to use a grapplehook to move around or escape adds another element of depth. You may use stealth, circle around for a better means of approach or simply enjoy taking to the rooftops and exploring places inaccessible by foot. As the story progresses, new abilities and gadgets are unlocked that not only do the expected job of allowing you to move to new areas but have their own effect in combat. Upgrades and new abilities/gadgets work in with the story; some aren't essential (for example: bonuses to damage) but those that are come into play hand in hand with the plot. They don't feel jarring or invasive.

The story behind the game is great and the plot is well paced. It doesn't simply give you a purpose to get to one area to the next but sits behinds your actions to make you desire to continue and further the story. The plot, gameplay and visuals blend together to make the experience immersive, giving the story more impact.

Incredibly dramatic lighting gives life to the environment. If you fear being unable to see correctly through the atmospheric shadows, fear not: it's easy enough to tweak the brightness settings to find the best balance for you and for your TV. In fact, the settings it starts off on are fine, but this gives you freedom to increase the atmosphere or the clarity to your personal preference. Weather effects, a variety of environments and other special effects are rendered well and look appealing while adding to the backdrop.

So yes, this game is a ‘fantastic experience’. Gameplay, plot and visuals combine to really immerse you in the experience. Whether you love or hate Batman, if you're a fan of great gaming you will enjoy this.
