If you are a fan of Batman you should really consider buying this. It's a really cool and fun game, infact you really feel like you are the bat! The stealth mechanics are excellent and I many times felt "awesome" while playing it.
The controls are ok with keyboard and mouse but I strongly recommend playing with a controller since it's mainly a fighting game.

All in all a great game that dosn't require to much on your pc, so it will run on a older PC.

If you're one of those people who always says, "I'M BATMAN," this game will make you feel validated. If you're not one of those people, you will be by the time you're done with this game -- and then you, too, will feel validated. I'm Batman. You're Batman. WE'RE ALL BATMAN. Or at least we are while we play Arkham Asylum.

The game takes place in the island of arkham asylum, you can roam freely in the island between the missions but not much to do.

- It has a straight to the point story, the main villain is Joker and along the way they introduce a lot of characters from the dc comics.

- It has a fun collectibles system, left there by the riddler, they are fun and not so hard to collect they reveal stories.

-Very neat graphics, the models are highly detailed and very well made, and the animations are very good.

- Batman has all his gadgets and you can use this tactically in each level since you have the option to stealth finish it or just storm in and be aggressive.

- The fighting system is so good, it is not about mashing buttons, at least if you wanna have a perfect combo. but you can still just press anything because it is so simple, u'll get hit a few but you'll manage.

-Sounds are good

-There is side challenges so when you like the fighting system you can keep the fighting going, and others for stealth mode play

why isn't Daredevil called Batman, and Batman called Daredevil? I mean, seriously?

Daredevil uses his hearing and echolocation, like a bat.

Batman dresses around doing suicidal stunts in his underwear, like a daredevil...

no further questions, your honor.
