Exclamation Batman: Arkham Asylum



I just got this game a few weeks ago, and I have to say that I love it! I love how it doesn't copy the Batman from the Christopher Nolan films nor does it have the Tumbler in it. It really gives that good feeling of the Batman: The Animated Series and some of the Tim Burton Batman in it as well. Now, this is not to say that I dislike the universe created by Nolan, it's just nice to get to see the other, more traditional side of Batman. And heck, they even have the original voices for Batman from the Animated Series back in the early 90s! With Mark Hamill back as The Joker and Kevin Conroy as Batman!

I'm playing it right now.
I'm not thrilled but it's interesting.
I think it lacks excitement and the toys I'm used to Batman be equipped with.

See, this part is fun. All the dark rooms and walkways of Arkham that we've only seen in parts in the comics and series and movies. Speaking of movies, at the very end of Batman Forever, I'm sure you remember Rene Aberjonois as Dr. Burton, Head Doctor of Arkham Asylum who was looking after the Riddler. What I love about this game so much, is that you can revisit places you already explored and find new things in them.

yeah...I guess. It's not a bad game.
I just don't get the wow factor my cousins promised me.

I was a little disappointed myself. However, Red Dead Redemption, like The Dark Knight, really lived up to the hype.

I don't blame them their real batman man fans.
It's kewl...I'm not really into the shoot kill kill games so Arkham is good game to play to pass the time.

I've liked the Mass Effect series mostly.
I played battlefield bad company and Modern War Fare 2. But I don't play slayer modes on line... Team play or co opt is my style.

I'm on X-box live as Saquist.
Well...I'm every where as Saquist.

Saquist, I'll send you a friend request on Xbox Live.

Granted, I never show up on Xbox Live (at least, under preferences....I always set it to "appear offline")

But if I see you on, perhaps we'll chat a bit.

As for Arkham Asylum, I loved the game and will revisit it soon, seeing as Batman: Arkham City (or whatever the sequel is called) is due out sometime soon.
