Batman: Arkham Asylum Opinions Surface

batmanOne game that I keep forgetting about for the Fall is Batman: Arkham Asylum. The game comes out in just a few weeks, and looks like just the kind of game that a great character like Batman has always deserved, with a cool cross of sneaking action with cool looking cutscenes. And hey, it even has Mark Hamill doing the Joker’s voice, so you can’t go wrong there.

But is the game any good? Apparently, yes. A few game publications are already starting to weight in with their opinions on the new Batman romp, and so far, it sounds awesome. The Official Playstation Magazine has given Arkham Asylum a 9/10, and GamesRadar has followed suit with a glowing 3 page preview. They even go as far as saying that this could be the greatest superhero game of all time.

So, who else is interested in this game. It may be moving up on my list, especially since it comes out in just a few short weeks on August 25th. And hey, if nothing else, you can test out the demo, which hits this Friday.

  1. And Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman. If you grew up watching The Animated Series like I did, this game is a dream come true.

    Future Shop had a demo up for the challenge rooms a few weeks ago. I tried it for about ten minutes, and it was a pretty fun taster. The combat has a very unique flow to it, and it’s easy to get into a groove, and just be the effortless badass we all know Batman is.

    This is a sure-fire purchase for me.

  2. After playing the Wolverine game, I’m willing to give another superhero game a go. Might rent this one and buy it if I like it enough.

  3. Demo Friday, you say? Awesome. Just in time for a weekend plus of bachin’ it. This game is definitely high on my list but has somehow dropped off my radar many times.

  4. This game looks EPIC
    Good to know people have finally figured out for to make a movie game. 😀

  5. I downloaded the demo last night from STEAM and I’ve got to say… I can’t WAIT for this game now.

    Finally a convincing batman and joker that aren’t pussies. Great voice acting. This is exactly what Batman needed in terms of video games.
