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).

    You know, I vaguely recall also thinking there was a set of Joker Teeth under the statue, only to eventually find it elsewhere on that map. Look around the whole map more--I remember being surprised where I found it based on where I first heard it.

    I'll definitely give it another look. I still want to run through the game on hard, so that'd be the perfect opportunity.

  • Wow. That was horrible. Yeah, the final boss was a bit lacking after everything else. If they've improved the bosses in City (it sounds like they have), that will be great!

    The first one was aweosme. It's cool, the Joker is insane and brilliant, it got the atmosphere perfect, it was fun to play and I loved the stealth parts. Just swinging around on the gargoyles and picking them off one by one. Loved those parts. True, the bosses were a bit lacking. Ivy was the hardest IMO, and I didn't like Croc much. If he's not in City, I wouldn't mind. Sure, he's creepy, but the other villains are far superior.

    Excited for City. If they can improve on some parts from the first one (Bosses for example) this could end up being my favourite game this year. Only one thing though: Am I the only one who thinks all these previews and such are overhyping it? They've also revealed a lot, some of it would've been better as a secret. I just hope it doesn't end up as a disappointment as a result.

    The secret to life is never watch previews :)

  • Great game. Did anyone else pick it up for $.99 at OnLive?
