Batman: Arkham Asylum

This game is so damn good. It's better than some of the movies in the franchise. I'm playing through it for the third time right now and I can't get over how high the production values are. The Joker is fantastic obviously (thanks Luke Skywalker) but everything about the game just kicks ass. The soundtrack rocks. The combat rocks. The mood is creepy. The plot keeps pushing you forward. The voice acting... OMG thank you Batman: The Animated Series (which is a whole other thread in itself).

  • I walked by all those guys just to see if they would stay there and laugh at me. They did. I thought that was awesome. Then I turned to fight them but it was too late, I accidentally went on through the hallway. And I couldn't go back.

    This. Same experience.

    My rule of thumb is to take the projected hours and subtract them by ten, so 15 sounds about right, at least for people like me that mosey through games like this so as to take in everything.

    What about a small indie game reported to have ~9 hours?

    What I don't like is a glitch involving the last set of Joker teeth that keeps me from ever 100%ing the game. Worst of all, I can't find anybody else with this problem.

    I had issues finding the last of the Joker teeth, but in the end I did find them all. The last Joker teeth I missed was hiding up in a corner in Patient Observation, and the gamefaqs guide's location for it was misleading.
  • I loved the game. One of the best ever for my tastes. Cannot wait for the sequel.
  • Only thing keeping this game from being perfect were the boss fights same with Uncharted 2. Hope they'd fix that in the sequel.

    No corporate BS there, so I tend to take indie games at their word.

    Mine's stuck underneath the statue in the Botanical Gardens. I even started the game over, and it's still there. I had hoped that detonating some gel over every square inch of the room would hit it through the floor, but no dice.

    You can't target it with a batarang or throw a remote controlled one at it?


    wait... through the floor? you mean it's inside the floor? how did you find it then?
  • The boss fights were fine. This was the first fun and actually difficult gaming experience for me in a long time. I don't want no watered down easy-peasy garbage like everything else. If they water down the sequel I'll be disappointed.
  • I didn't mind the boss battles so much, but I'd agree they were the weakest point. Still have to finish the stealth challenge maps, and it took forever just to do the combat ones! I'm so excited fot the sequel; really hope there is more Scarecrow and more clever Riddler puzzles.
