    Batman is worth every penny

    Created: 10/09/09
    Graphics: Excellent 9.5/10
    Sound: Excellent 9.5/10
    Controls: Great 8.5/10
    Gameplay: Excellent 9.5/10
    Replay: Very Good 8.0/10
    Overall: Excellent 9.0/10


    Note to the reader: This game has been played through and completed in its entirety.


    Graphics: Excellent 9.5/10

    The graphics are excellent, the cut-scenes and in-game graphics are seamless, and this is a great addition to the Fall 2009 line-up. It looks, feels, and has undertones of being "Bioshock-esque". This title pushes this generations graphics and leaves the purchaser wanting more. The shadows, lighting effects, colors, but more importantly the motions and combat animations are great, and really immerse you into the game. The bad guys, though repetitive, are detailed along with the backgrounds, and environments. This is a rich, and engrossing, environment.

    Sound: Excellent – 9.5/10

    The thing that sets this game apart is the voice acting. Games have had problems with cheesy actors, but this title gets Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil to do the voices of Batman and the Joker (from the Animated series). This game has the sound, from the sounds of the punches, groans, the heightening tension of the music when an attack is coming, and the sounds of The Asylum. The ambiance is set in the different areas by the increasing tones of heightening sense of importance through the use of music in this game.

    Controls: Great - 8.5/10
    Very well done and responsive control set. During combat, the controls can be pinpoint accurate, and makes it fun when playing the challenges. The downside is the use of Batman's arsenal, which the controls are lack accuracy.

    Gameplay: Excellent – 9.5/10

    Let me start by saying that when playing this game, there is nothing better than having an excellent Batman Game. With or without Batman, this game would be fun regardless, but just having this license makes it that much better. However, that being said, this game is a single player experience, and that is not a bad thing. Having a multi-player may have actually hurt this title. The computer A.I. will shoot you in the back, hunt you down, and will be aware of where you have been.

    Replay Value: Very Good - 8.0/10

    Once the game is over, you will most likely be wanting more. Luckily, there are many unlockables, multiple difficulty levels, and a challenge mode, with more maps to come, to keep you going. You will want to find all the upgrades for every weapon, and compare your times to your friends. After all that is said and done, you will have got your money's worth.

    Overall – Excellent 9.0/10

    This is an excellent game, and is almost a 10/10, but it is not perfect. This game is a nice addition to the end of the Summer 2009 release schedule and is worth every penny. This game is a great mix of pure action and stealth.

    This game is a mix of Gears of War, Bioshock, and Assassin's Creed. Where this game does many things right, it is flawed and glitch in just as many areas. If this were another title name, I would still have enjoyed it still as much.

    Verdict: BUY IT

    Ok. like alot of you tried the demo and wasnt to excited. But I bought the special edition and could care less at first. Then I got addicted out of nowhere. Theres this sweet upgrading your everything part. I loved upgrading my batarang so I could control it like a remote controlled plane. Also you can detect stuff like smoke from a nicotine pipe to lead to more thrilling things. I mean thats a cool way to tell you where to go on the map. I love me some gears of war 2 except for the glitches and this had graphics just like that game. Very refreshing fun and addictive. Irs like old school tenchu meets matrix meets button masher meets problem solving. Hope I could help take care. O yeah dont buy the speacial edition cause the batarang is plastic and is stuck to the stand.

    One of the coolest games out there today!

    Created: 02/03/10
    The graphics are fantastic, the character details are amazing, and the voice acting is top notch. This is Batman for the modern age. The combat is a bit simple, but tricky when being attacked by groups. The graphics of the combat make up for it though. The area is vast, and is tricky sometimes. A great game for any Batman lover.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum (Collector's Edition) (Xbox 360)

    Created: 04/12/09
    Best Batman game EVER. The things that I don't like about it is that if you don't buy a certain Arkham Asylum, you could be missing out on some good extras. They should make extras like, Crime Alley, Dem Bones, Armored Batman, and The Joker DLC so that games aren't forced into buying this codes from individuals or the same game of a different system and make more of a profit for themselves. But, I guess that how companies have to compete with one another. Maybe they with make them DLCs soon enough.
