5.0 out of 5 stars Bout Time, 10 Aug 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3) (Video Game)
There have been many Batman games but not many good ones, Batman: Arkham Asylum is the first game where you feel like Batman and you get to do all the things Batman can do, you really become the detective and caped crusader that is Batman. This game really has a sence of darkness and the story line is perfect for this type of game. If you are not sure about it then download the demo because if you dont try that you really are missing out on a great game.
Plot: The game begins with Batman capturing the Joker after his latest plot and escorting him to Arkham Asylum for imprisonment. Due to the Joker's recent attack on Gotham's Blackgate Prison, a large number of sane convicts have been transferred. However, the Joker, with the help of Harley Quinn, frees all the inmates and closes Arkham Asylum with Batman and Commissioner Gordon inside. Joker then threatens to detonate bombs all around Gotham if someone tries to enter the building. Batman must uncover the full extent of the Joker's plan while contending with the horrors of Arkham.

Wow; talk about making sweeping assumptions based on about ten minutes of play.

I never understand why people review games based on demos; it's *almost* as useless as those reviews by people who haven't even played the game.

And I never understand why people have nothing better to do than have a go at people for reviewing demos (which is a part of the actual game). If places like IGN and Gamespot can give impressions from a short demo playthrough we can too. Get over it.

I agree with what you say but they don't give an overall score until they have their hands on the full game. If people are that desperate to comment on a demo, take it to a blog or forum and discuss with other gamers. Simple.

Amazon really needs to disable reviews/ratings for products such as video games before they are released.

I agree with ABZ...but would also like to point out that often IGN and Gamespot get early codes of games to go through, so they can see the potential of a game and can comment (before giving a score when they've played the full version). Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the demo of Arkham Asylum, but the reviews are meant to be of the full game and as none of the people who have reviewed so far have played the full game, these reviews seem a little superflous. What if, despite how good the demo seemed, the game became stale and repetetive? What if it had a completely lame ending? Or, what if it had amazing features and game modes that you don't get in the demo? Keep it to the forums, these reviews aren't of the actual product and as such become worthless.

ign and gamespot are emplyed to do such, they wont assume the game is Amazing because the demo is. you have however, and as such amazon should remove your review.

get a life. he is reviewing the demo not the full game as he states. if people like you have not got a life and need to have a go just to have a go then i suggest you do not read the reviews on amazon.

Thank you for your insightful and thoughtful response to the criticisms of thie review, C. Edwards. However, I feel duty bound to let you know that you're an idiot. Sorry to be the person to break it to you, but you are. No one here is here just to 'have a go' at the reviewer, however the reviewer has written a review of what is essentially a different product and given a rating that others may feel is unrepresentative of the actual product. I reserve the right to have an opinion on this. Now, if you feel it's fine to write reviews like this, then that's fair enough, but don't tell others to 'get a life' when they express that they don't think the review is useful or relevant.

Yeah i agree i wish amazon and other online stores would disable reviews till the release date as i hate reading reviews of the demo. I counted nearlly 20 reviews for one game before it wa sout just on the demo. It's like me reviewing a film based just on the trailer !
