Batman: Arkham Asylum

I love how stupid the bad guys can be. Had a moment last night, after jumping up from a lift shaft, where there were about 6 blokes quite surprised to see me. Knocked down all but one in bad-ass fashion, and the last guy ran away and started ripping a pipe off the wall. So I walked slowly towards him. And waited. And waited...

It's just brilliant. Flawed, certainly - but oh so BATMAN.

I just hung there, listening to them gab, lept up and did the rapid batarang on four of them and went to town. It really does nail the feeling of being Batman so well.

So whats the best preparation for getting this on Friday. Watch the new films ? Read Year One, DKR, Killing Joke and Broken City ? Put my pants on outside my trousers and fight some crime ? Make my mum and dad take me to see Zorro in a dodgy part of town ? Take a young boy as my ward and make him wear his pants outside his trousers ?

:)

All of the above ?

I have to echo the reviews on this game, its superb.

i got it yesterday morning, and played it until late last night, and throughout today. Best game of the year.

The visuals are excellent, and the feeling of being batman is brill. Moving around and deciding how best to take down henchmen is great, and working out how to stategise your attacks, is just brilliant imho. Cracking stuff

Wont post anymore for spoilers for the rest of you, but excellent story as well.

Well done Rocksteady

Definitely the surprise of the year so far for me... Having rewatched the latest films this week downloaded the demo out of pure curiosity (hadn't even read thus thread) and wow it nails the Batman feel absolutely perfectly!

It's the first demo I've played through multiple times in god knows how long! Roll on Friday!

Read Arkham Asylum and Arkham Asylum: Living Hell would be a good idea.

That order would be preferable, if not entirely required.

Also, if you're buying them, make sure you get an Arkham Asylum with the script included. Pretty much the default I think, but it is a very interesting read. Lots of stuff in there not immediately obvious from the comic itself due to the art style.

Finally got a chance to sit down and play this, and although I'm not 100% sober at the moment I can safely say this game is fucking brilliant. The start is also very different from the demo by the way. Love it. Looking forward to playing it some more tomorrow. Definitely a GotY contender.

Was reading some of the reviews at work and one of them (the CVG/Strategy Informer one) said that once you've completed the main game, you can go through the empty asylum to get all the collectibles. Sweet. Also I just noticed on the demo that Joker has a couple of interviews under his bio information. The main game you'll be able to get some for all the featured villains and some of the cameos too.

They've really nailed the 30 secs of fun thing hunting goons - just love it. Has anyone found a way to switch off the hint hud? - it's the only thing that's wrong with the game - does get annoying that it won't leave the screen until you do what it says - I want to explore and enjoy working things out for myself - now fuck off!

Tried hard mode this morning - it's actually hard.
