3D Metroidvania done right. It's as if they wanted to make a Castlevania but didn't have the rights, but already had the castle and bat idea so Batman in Arkham Asylum! Oh, so clever. But undeniably the best example there is of said sub-genre, it mixes up group-based brawling, stealth take-down, puzzle solving, and plain old adventuring to result in not only the most comprehensive Batman experience comparable to anything before it, but also showcased the next proper evolution of its game genre.

9.4/10 A catch of a batarang, gliding from rooftops, countering a punch. You become the Batman! Combining innovative combat, grim environments, & steady progression, your stay in Arkham Asylum is welcome. The atmosphere is darker than Burton, but more fantastical than Nolan. Add the cast and writers of Fox's Batman, AA feels familiar yet all its own. Nearing game's end reveals the limit of AA's mechanics followed by a weak climax. Still, B:AA is a must own akin to TombRaider13 or MetroidPrime.

Batman Arkham Asylum was and still is a great Batman game. The game was the one that started it all. I think people dont appreciate Arkham Asylum. But I do, the game's story is great and its one of the best storylines, the combat is very polished and wel done, the voice acting is great, and well this game is great. Overall if a batman game makes you feel like Batman then its really good.

The stealth gameplay and visual designs are what I really liked about this game. The combat looks cool although you don't actually do that much. The enemies are too generic and the combat consequently gets monotonous. Worst of all is the cartoonish version of the villains. The game tries to have the raw realism of the latest Nolan films, but the villains are like those from the old cartoonish films, they don't fit in at all with the game. What you get is a bad combination of the two.

I love this game! The gameplay is great and fluid, story is entertaining, the level designs is awesome, and it has a lot of extra things to do. A must play for anyone that likes Batman, or likes to play a fun action game.

This game set the tone for what I feel an action brawler should be these days. Granted I had a few problems with the ending of the game, they are such minor nit-picks to what I consider a nearly perfect gaming experience. It's not complex at all, in fact, it's very simple to play, but hard to master. This game gives me such a great sense of being a complete and total bad ass unlike any other game I've played before. Strongly recommended for fans of Batman and/or brawlers.

All the action is on rails, the combat is some quick time event-like mess, and you spend too much time walking around and climbing things. This is the kind of game we get a lot these days: a movie with some gameplay stuffed in it. If you are into action adventure cinematic, high production value games I think this might be for you. But from a pure gameplay prespective i find this to be a mess. It's not that it doesn't work as intended. the controlls are responsive. But I hate how it all works.

"A game which gives the nostalgic feeling of the animated show of the 90's but with up-to date versions of the characters. Arkham asylum is quite possibly the best Super-hero game ever in my opinion."

Aside from Harley being all... revealed, and the chugging of combat once in a while I enjoyed it.

This game changed my perspective of super hero video games! Yeah... Superman 64 was the issue. But this game itself exceeded no only my gaming expectations, but my batman fan expectations. I recommend this game!

Great game. It combines Beat em Up, Metroidvania, and Stealth into one game. It's extremely easy to get into and great voice actors with Kevin Conoroy, Mark Hillman and Steve Blum to name some. BUT the thing holding it back is the bosses which were mostly disappointing except Poision Ivy and Scarecrow which are amazing. Ending was ok but its never the less an amazing game to get.

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker

 Guitar Hero - PlayStation 2
"The game that started the music video game and plastic musical instrument controller craze. There is quite a good selection of music, with Crossroads being my favorite, and the gameplay is smooth and satisfying. There are different difficulties so anyone can pick it up and play and when you nail a solo on expert difficulty it is quite a good feeling. I've been playing guitar for over 10 years and while I can already play the songs in the game in real life, it is still a damn fun time." - Parker

 Polar Rescue - Vectrex
"The game is pretty fun to play simply because it is on the Vectrex but once that wears off the game really isn't that great. The overlay looks pretty nice though." - Parker

 The Tomb Raider Trilogy - PlayStation 3
"A great trilogy release for the PS3. And I always make Lara leap to her death. It's a wonder I ever completed them when I kept doing that." - scarecrowchan

 Rock Revolution - Nintendo DS
"Considering the fact that I hardly enjoyed Activision's effort at bringing the Guitar Hero franchise to the DS a few years back, there's no way I would be able to tolerate Rock Revolution. It looks like a half-assed attempt at best. At least with Guitar Hero DS you would have the button attachment and even though it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be, it still functioned well enough. Who in their right mind would want to tap and swipe music notes, it looks boring and repetitive." - mikamifan92
