Do you wanna play like a super hero and re-visit the old foes of the Batman DC Comic line-up? Then I highly suggest you rent or purchase your own copy of “Batman Arkham Asylum” asap. This role-player adventure game is available on a variety of different gaming platforms. The fluid game play and HD graphics on this game for the Xbox360 made my jaw drop. Batman fans and super hero fans alike will be sure to enjoy this video game and everything that this game packs. No guns are necessary for Batman, just hand-to-hand combat along with his utility belt goodies: Grappling hooks, batarangs (batman style boomerangs), explosives…etc. The introduction of the game begins with Batman delivering the Joker to the Prison (Arkham Asylum). Joker is strapped to an upright rolling gurney, reminiscent of the ‘Hannibal Lechter’ style gurney. As he is being rolled through the gates, the gamer is prompted to control Batman who walks closely to the group of guards. Joker all the while is yapping his familiar yap, chastizing the guards and Batman. The scenery and the environment gives the gamer an eerie feeling that something bad is going to happen at any moment. The characteristics of a Learning game are all here. Total control of playing the game as Batman and selection of the Batman weaponry incorporates the gamer to build strategy. The curiosity of what the next level will bring after successfully completing one level after the next keeps the gamer coming back for more. The sheer fantasy of playing as a super hero and the vibration feedback from the controller as you are hit by a villain or standing near an explosion keeps you in the moment and makes you feel that you are actually living in the video game. The constant challenge of completing the game at each difficulty level with 100% success (the curiosity of trying to find all of the hidden secrets on each map) invites the gamer to play the game again and again. There are tons of secrets available (for free) and revealed online, which gives gamers confidence that they will be able to solve all there is to solve in the game completely. That always makes me feel like I got my money’s worth from a game if little things like these are available. This game gets a 10 out of 10 and a double ‘thumbs up’ from me.
