Batman: Arkham Asylum has been given some sweet reviews. It is well liked by everyone who plays it and caters to many age groups.

This game plays in the third person where you are controlling batman. The game begins right in the heart of the drama, as Batman chases toward the asylum and the Joker follows behind. The Joker breaks into the crazy asylum and makes plans with some of the bad guys to form an evil group. After he arranges his top secret plans, a fire emerges and the Joker escapes from harm. Batman has to overcome many hurtles as he attempts to keep the Joker from releasing all of the crazy patients. He must dart over buildings and open gas vents to do this.
The game contains some gory parts which make it true to the movie The Dark Knight. There are a few violent images but nothing too disturbing. At times there are girls in skimpy outfits and the odd use of bad words, but nothing too over the top. The main functions in the game are to explore the world and fight bad guys as they try to stop you. There are four types of fighting moves you can choose from; strike, reverse, jump and stun. And with these moves you can do drop kicks, elbow slams and punch.

It was challenging but not frustrating which made it loved by all. Batman moves quickly in this game, faster than his enemies which make is easy to get through the levels and complete missions. The graphics are well done and the game features many new and old Batman characters. The only negative comment heard was that they were disappointed that the bat mobile was not useable by Batman. But with an overall 92% game ranking, that was certainly not too big of an issue.
Batman himself makes a big impression on the game. Not only is he super fast, but he also have lots of power and expensive gadgets which make fighting bad guys even that more intense. The Joker narration was also a great feature that many people loved.
