Using a great variety of gadgets you must make your way around the island, and the asylums halls to find and stop the joker. The game uses a 3-button combat system, but with a great number of gadget abilites which Batman can unlock. This makes for a very cinematic combat experience when fighting the Joker's goons.

Batman très og le joker fait trop sa goofball

This game makes you truly feel like Batman

One of the few exploration games I really clicked with. Seems better than it's source material. It's interesting that so many games copied it's combat but not it's structure.

Arkham Asylum started it all, it is quite revolutionary.. especially for being a sleeper hit at the time. This game has been talked about a trillion times now, so I'll leave it with my major issue. My goodness, the damn BACKTRACKING, I must've walked through the same area at least a thousand times on revisit. Ok one last thought, the scarecrow sequences were so ahead of their time, truly ridiculous in a great way.

It was probably revolutionary when it came out, but nowadays you can truly feel it was actually a step backward from what an actual beat-em up should look like. Ironically, allowing Batman to make the choice where he takes the fight next is less freeing than making the choice on your own as a player. Spamming square is so much better than choosing where to take the fight and what weapons to use! I would much rather play this game than Devil May Cry 3! (No one has ever said this in the history of the world) It's understandable that this game is as lukewarm as it is, because it attracts the type of people that say pizza is their favourite food.

Why is it that random hoodlums in a stealth mission are more unforgiving than my actual canon enemies? Why were both Bane and the Jonkler straight out of a Crash Bandicoot game? Were the creators of this game stupid?

Minor Nitpick:
This game is (current year minus 2009) years old. Why the fuck does Steam default to a Xbox controller layout for any one controller? Who the fuck looks at an X and thinks "oh yeah this is on the right side of my controller, I will now proceed with clicking that button". X is always down. You guys are PISSING me off.

Sexy, sexy Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
