Arkham Asylum is a triumph in every aspect. Combat, story (characters, voice acting, etc), atmosphere, sound design and even graphical fidelity. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=331161841
This game captures what it is to be batman and my god its DAMN FUN. The developers going into making Arkham Asylum said "What can we do to make you feel like batman right away, as soon as we give the player control we want them to feel like a bad ♥♥♥. You feel like batman, the way your character is animated and moves, the freeflow combat system has you jumping around bruising bad people until the cows come home with some of the most satisfying combat I have played to date.
Here is a huge thing for me, and for all Batman fans. I watched the cartoon as a kid. Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamil all brought the cartoon and that world to vivid life. Well guess what guys, they got just about everyone from the cartoon to revoice their characters in Arkham Asylum, Harley, Gordon, Batman, Joker, Scarcrow etc.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=332956143
It is an incredible cast and it immerses you so fully in the world you almost never want to leave. The world that Rocksteady has recreated is fantastic, with dark colors and almost a noirish feel to the game that sucks you deeper and deeper into the world. You truly ARE batman in this game. It reminds me of a mixture of the cartoon and Tim Burtons dark seedy take on Batman. It is truly a game to be experianced.
So would I recommend this game? Abso♥♥♥♥inglutely. If you enjoy 3rd person fighting games with smooth combat systems that just make you want to sing while you are playing them. THIS GAME IS FOR YOU. If you are a fan of the Batman universe, cartoon, or comics YOU OWE it to yourself to pick up and play this game. It is absolutely fantastic.
I would recommend this game to just about anyone who enjoys a solid, FUN game in every aspect. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=331088258
