Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Dark Knight returns in the first game to do him justice in his more than 20 year history in video games. Not based on any specific comic book or movie it takes all the best ideas and visuals from all of Batman's many incarnations to create a unique spin on one of pop culture's greatest icons.

Arkham Asylum becomes the backdrop for Batman's most dangerous challenge
Killer Croc has never looked more imposing or been more dangerous
Batman must discover the deadly secrets behind The Joker's masterplan
Stalk the minor criminals like prey and strike from the dark when they least expect it

The entire game takes place within Arkham Asylum, where The Joker and his allies have overtaken the facility and set a trap for Batman. This is no simplistic beat 'em-up though, with Batman forced to prove his status as the world's greatest detective with a number of complex forensic-style puzzles.

When it does come to combat though you must still use your cunning as much as your fists, as you stalk unaware enemies and distract them with the bodies or screams of their cronies. With believable physics, superb graphics and a serious adult tone this is more than just another superhero tie-in.

Key Features
  • Rogue's gallery: Battle all of Batman's greatest foes, including The Joker, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc.
  • Final Knight: Gain experience from fights and puzzles to improve and add to Batman's abilities via a role-playing game style skill tree that lets you customise the Dark Knight as you see fit.
  • Dynamic duo: Target the most dangerous foes from the shadows with a special takedown move and then move in to stun or attack opponents with the game's intuitive combo system.
  • Detective comics: Batman must use his brain as well as his brawn, with CSI-style puzzles solved by an array of bat-gadgets including a multi-use interactive visor.
  • Animated avenger: An original story written by comic book and Batman: The Animated Series legend Paul Dini -- plus Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaming at its best, a real art form. 26 Dec 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played this game three times from beginning to end, which has never happened before with any game I've bought. I've never watched a Batman animated show or read a Batman comic book, my only source has been the movies so for me to enjoy this game and come away feeling like the ultimate Batman fan is something of a miracle. The games story grabs you in so completely you'll be wishing you knew everything possible about the caped crusader and the villains of the story.

The story centers around Batman bringing his arch-nemesis The Joker to Arkham Asylum, a penatentary for the criminally insane. Being the clever villain that he is he manages to set an elaborate trap, and takes over the facility, releasing the prisoners, and is about to give Batman a very bad headache. Whilst the story sounds like an excuse to throw in as many villains as possible it does so with quality craftsmanship. The voice acting is top notch, providing the gamer with a sense of maturity rarely seen in comic book characters and delivered, line by line, with professional execution. The gameplay has so much to offer too, from the fluid combat system to the excellent stealth missions where you take down armed villans using your head and gadgets instead of guns (and sometimes your fists) and adds to the sense of mysticism of the Batman character.

For me the greatest aspect of this game is Arkham Asylum itself, the rich enviroment gives you a sense of wonder whilst remaining intimidating, without ever getting boring. This is one of the few games I was actually afraid to complete, knowing that the experience would finally come to an end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bat's the way to do it!! 2 Mar 2011
By rohall
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Have you ever loved a game so much you've actually tried to push your head into the television screen to try to be a part of it? What - oh, uh...no, m-me neither! But if I was going to do that to a game I'd do it to Batman Arkham Asylum!
This is one of the only games out there that actually makes you 'feel' like Batman! I used to get the same feeling when playing the old commodore 64 official licensed game based on the Tim Burton movie, until I realised that Batman wasn't entirely made up of large grey blocks! You get to stalk around a creepy asylum in big boots, a cape and exposed purple pants (for some reason) beating up ridiculously 'beefed up' goons while you try to hunt down the Joker and, well...beat him up a bit! The whole game feels like it's straight out of the Batman comics (the newer, darker comics, not the 40's ones where he hung around with a teenage boy in skimpy yellow tights and smiled a lot).
The game starts out with big boots bringing the Joker into Arkham Asylum for incarceration purposes and you even get a nice pre-title sequence in which you control Batsy as he tags along while the Joker is being transported to his cell by the asylum guards.
Things go a bit wrong quite quickly, however, when it transpires that the Joker has set this whole 'being captured' thing up and escapes into the depths of Arkham! There then follows a brief fighting tutorial that lets you get to grips with the simple, but surprisingly entertaining combat system as you `duff up' a number of the Joker's goons! After you've finished off the massive thugs with slow-motion, painful looking attacks you guide Batman inside the main entrance of the asylum.
The game is extremely atmospheric overall and the core stealth game play is well executed (much like many of Batman's enemies).

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman: Arkham Asylum Review 27 July 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So you're Batman. Isn't that enough? Arriving at Arkham, Joker in hand, you soon find yourself in the middle of his latest campaign to lay waste to Gotham and finish with you. PThe writing is solid and engaging with a clear direction, the Joker's motives are essentially just, because he wants to, but it works overall. The atmosphere is dark and moody without trying too hard to be so and the story allows you to proceed through a number of environments and encounter a plethora of characters; good and horrific. In fact one of the high points is how it integrates information about dozens of classic characters, mainly villains, but chooses only a handful of these to combat, rather than blowing everything it has it uses pacing and scarcity to highlight these encounters making them feel suitably epic.

The game takes place entirely on Arkham Island but the world itself is open to exploration and constantly changing. The story does a good job of keeping you in the right direction whilst the Riddler's puzzles, numerous trophies and cryptic images scattered across the world, keep it from feeling too restrictive. The environment changes with time, becoming more hostile as guards are slowly replaced with the Joker's thugs and even more so toward the end as a large event affects the whole island (I won't spoil that here though). As you progress you gain new equipment which becomes key to reaching later areas and those last few Riddler trophies.

Gameplay can be basically described as two forms of combat alternated and interspersed with platforming sections. Whilst not as challenging as a true Platformer like Mario it adds a nice sense of variety and adds to the intrigue of finding the Riddler's puzzles.

Such an addictive game, I found it hard to come off this. I found they got Batman spot on, and so close to the comics it seems unreal.
