The guide begins with the Heroes and Villains of Arkham Asylum. Each character is given their story, attributes and vital facts. Then the basics of play are explained including controls, combat, gadgets and upgrades. The walkthrough itself contains a floor-plan of each area and the location of every Riddler's Challenge. The reader is warned about every armed encounter and the best way to defeat goons and bosses is explained.

The Riddler's Challenge section reveals the locations of all 240 challenges and gives instructions on solving them. Spirit of Arkham reveals all 24 deciphered messages. Challenge Mode explains all the combat and predator challenges.

Reading this guide shows just how much content there is in the game. The only problem is some of the artwork. Compared to Piggyback's guide to Resi 5 some of it is quite poor. But for any gamer wanting to get the most from Batman: Arkham Asylum this guide is highly recommended.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 23 February 2016
This is probably one of the most useful strategy guides I have ever bought. This guide is very detailed and comprehensive and can help you finish quests faster, and complete the game the most efficient way possible.

I love the game, but having played through with this guide, I'd have to say that the walkthrough doesn't do it justice. There is nothing in the guide that is a "must-buy" or significantly enhances the story. The background character profiles are the ones from the game, so they may help people unfamiliar with the DC universe to solve some of the Riddles.

The maps in particular are a let down; it's difficult to figure out which icon relates to which solution and the Riddler Secrets Maps in the game perform almost the exact same job. I think the only time I used the book maps was to find a couple of Joker Teeth right at the end.

The tips for the Challenges are useful, if not fantastic.

In all, the various online guides and the plethora of videos they contain make a much better medium for the walkthrough than a printed one, although it is nice to have a printed reference rather than a laptop next to you.

I've not played this game personally as it was a present for my boyfriend, but from what I've seen the graphics are awesome (ps3) and I've considered taking it back and playing it myself! The only comments he would add are it would be best to buy the strategy guide too as this game is very involved and there are many hidden small missions or awards missed if played with out the guide. Overall 10/10 especially if you like games that are challenging and take more than 5 mins to complete.

This is a most enjoyable game and something a bit different from the usual run of the mill shooters. There is a nice mixture of exploration, problem solving and combat and the extra skills and gadgets acquired through earning XP are really useful ( hint- take the armour upgrades early, you'll need them for some of the boss fights!) The game controls work well, the graphics are superb and the story keeps your interest. For me the only really difficult part was defeating the Titan Poison Ivy - the final confrontation with the Joker seemed a lot easier.
After that you are free to wander the grounds and buildings at will to solve any of Riddler's challenges you missed earlier.

Great guide, very useful for all aspects of the game, added to the experience, couldn't have enjoyed the game (as much as I did) without it.
