Batman Arkham Asylum- Video Game Review

Tuesday, August 27, 2013



The Batman games have been some of my favorite games out there.  This time around we will talk about Arkham Asylum.  This is the first game in the Batman series by rocksteady and it is really well put together. The game play is fun and allows you to explore the area of Arkham Asylum.  The villains that we get to see are pretty amazing too Bane, Zsasz,  Joker, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow, and the Riddler.  We never see the Riddler in this game but hear him and get to solve puzzles he presents to us.  Joker is one of the best villains I have seen in a video game.


Personally I think this is the comic book game we have been waiting for.  It came out in 2009 and finally the newest one (the third one) Batman Arkham Origins is finally about to come out!  I am super excited about that. The fighting system in this game is easy to learn.  I love how I can go about in the world exploring and finding trophies and what not.  







 

Really I might as well also review Arkham City, the second game in the series.  Graphics are better of course and there are all new villains.  In Arkham City you are able to travel and explore more places in the world.  One neat thing about these games is that if you want to see more of Batman's world and learn more and don't really want to read the comics I think this is a neat way to interact in the Batman world.  


I really recommend these games to everyone.  They are fun and really do Batman justice.

  2. That image of Joker is just super creepy! This game really does sound like fun. Do you have to pay to play though? I can't remember, but I know my ex wanted to play a game like this but you had to pay to play even after buying the game. I may be totally off. Still, this one sounds fun and I love that so many of the villains are in it!!

    Just curious, do you mainly play console games, or do you play PC as well? I'm more of a PC gamer and really only stick to Sims or Nancy Drew games (the greatest!) but would love to hear if you have any recommendations!

    1. You do not have to pay to play these games. So once you buy the game then you can play it for free. I mainly play console games... it's true. But I have played some Sherlock games that are really fun. You do a lot of detective work on them. http://www.sherlockholmes-thegame.com/

    This is such a cool deluxe edition I wish I could buy it just to have the Joker statue. It would also give me an excuse to by a console to play it on.
