2.0 out of 5 stars Only Batman Geeks Will Like This., 18 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Batman: Arkham Asylum - Classics (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Sorry like but I just don't understand all the hype around this game. The reviews of 4 & 5 stars seem to be created by Batman super geeks who would have loved it even if Batman was made of turd. On that point he certainly looks like turd!

Why did they make Batman look so damn poor!? What's happened to the cool developments Batman has experienced since the revamp of the modern day films? Instead of going with the modern day really cool black leather and body armour, they thought 'Na... I know why not go with the original really dated look of grey tights and silk cape'? Whilst were on let's also stick some ridiculously large hooks on his arms and make him walk like he has permanently soiled himself? Cool!!?' 'Yeah that will look like totally awesome'! NOT! And before you say 'oh but the original is the best', no it isn't! In fact if it weren't for Tim Burton who undertook the modernisation of Batman, Batman would have been forgotten long ago, a little like Superman. Why make Batman in Arkham Asylum look like the original? Beyond me.

The game is full of annoyances, why no mini map? To get around you have to continually pause the game to access the map, resulting in interruption of gameplay.

Why do the combo controls not work? When I say they don't work I literally mean they don't work and you end up button bashing the same boring punches over and over again. Then again it doesn't matter that the combo's don't work as the cannon fodder villains you encounter would be more dangerous if they had no arms. They are completely useless. You can literally take on a group of them with their stupid masks and steroid sized bodies and knock them all unconscious without them evening landing a punch! Boring.

During the game you encounter the boss battles such as Bane, Poison Ivy and the likes who again don't really give any real contest. Throughout you can search for Riddler clues and collectables that also serve no real purpose.

I really am finding it difficult to come up with anything positive about this game that makes it worthy of a higher star rating. There is nothing here that makes it stand out from the crowd and it certainly doesn't compete with other modern day games in the same category. To be honest it's a total let down and a disappointment....

Oh I've just thought of something positive to say! Harley Quinn's bum looks nice....
