Batman Arkham Asylum - My review First when I saw E3,2009 trailer of Batman Arkham Asylum, I thought it would be just another super hero game like xman, Superman,spiderman,etc. Few days ago I downloaded a demo of arkham asylum to see how my x4500hd can run it. First time when i started to play the game I forgot every thing that our bloody world has.And nothing stopped me from getting the final one. Story: When we have batman and Joker, there won't be a shortage for stories. Batman Arkham Asylum starts when Batman is taking Joker back to Arkham. Unfortunately after entering into the arkham joker escapes from the security, and you find yourself in a playground of joker.And rest of the story is how you will take down the joker and other mighty criminals that can be found in the dark world of batman. The story is good. Reaches the standards of batman. Gameplay: What makes Batman AA a clear winner is that how it lets you to approach enemies.Basically there are two types of gameplay mechanics in arkham one is a typical hand to hand combat system and another is the Predator mode. In hand to hand combat you will be given a free flow combat system like the in Prince of Persia and God Hand.It is easy to get into. But difficult to master. you can easily pull the 4 hit combo but to achieve 9 hit combo you have to struggle and practice. There are typical reversals which are cool and some stun attacks which are awkward. What i liked most is the predator mode.. You will be given a chance to be the real batman. You can take out thugs in the dark. Silently sneaking behind them. And if any one of the remaining thugs found the body... man.. you gotta see their reaction. They will just wet their pants. In predator mode.. you can pull glide kicks and by upgrading you can do Inverted Take downs. The game play also includes roaming and adventure elements. You will be hunting for vents, and Riddle challenges, Riddle Trophies, Interview tapes,etc. Over all the game play is mind blowing. Presentation: Something I didn't expected to be this good was the presentation part. The cut scenes are amazing. The Musical score is an orchestral score which is mind blowing. These won't stand a chance before amazing voice acting from Joker to hundreds of thugs you will fight. You will stop and listen to the conversion of Joker in the radio. The voice acting of Chronicles of arkham is mind blowing. The interview tapes take their valuable share too. When it comes to visuals.. the art direction is amazing. You can see the colorful comic book taking it's life. Technically.. this game is a U3 game.. The graphics looks stunning and optimizable to a great extent. WTF moments: we will say WTF where we will encounter some thing that we didn't even expected. Well.. if you are playing this game, get ready to chant WTF. For the people who didn't get me--just leave it, it is not for you. Pros: Predator mode, Voice Acting, 3 Encounters with the Scarecrow, unique boss battles, 240 Riddle challenges, provides lot of info about the dark world of Batman, and the list goes on and on.... Cons:Giving free roaming capabilities while on a mission can be misleading,You don't want to stop playing the game even after the ending, Some Riddle challenges and trophies are way too challenging. Verdict: If you are a person who don't care about the Batman then you are the person who deserves to play this game..coz I did. It is the best super hero game ever created. Somebody claims that it is Infamous, let us face it.. I didn't played infamous(yet). So, for me BAA is the best super hero game ever designed.
