Batman : Arkham Asylum
« on: 29 June, 2009, 11:09:20 pm »


Well as I dont think anyone else has, I thought I'd start a thread on this.

This has to be my most anticipated game EVER. I even shelled out £700 on a gaming spec pc so I'd be ready for it! Granted my machine was well old and needed upgrading anyway, but still...

Looks absolutely stunning and the stealth gameplay seems kickass. I recently played the Batman Begins Gamecube game on my wii which I thought was a lot better than the general concensus, but this looks almost TOO good. Released August 28th, actually considering booking a few days off.

I will buy this, but I think the new Splinter Cell makes it seem like a fairly run of the mill stealth em' up in comparison.

Nah, thats on my list as well now, but the comic nerd in me needs the Bat game way more.

based on i have read and watched at this point. its  a must buy.

great art, superb graphics, game play looks outstanding. good story line if the reviews are to be believed.
on my list for my august purchase, the summer has an outstanding line up of games this year doesnt it. which is not the normal run of things.

So far what I've seen of the gameplay hasn't blown me away, looks like it might be fairly button mashy. The look and style has me very impressed though, the Joker looks so damn cool I know I'm gonna buy this regardless.

Just seen that on a trailer. No Joker option on the XBox version! Bastards... what's the point of only allowing that on one platform? Still buying it the morning it comes out, mind... I doubt I could give an impartial review of it. I have an emulator of the Spectrum 128 version and it's still addictive.
