"If you're a Batman fan, this is the best treatment the World's Greatest Detective has ever received in videogame form... Ryan Scott, GameSpy.com
"[Batman: Arkham Asylum] is very nearly the perfect game. This game is as close to 100% as I've ever seen. Phil Soletsky, GameOverOnline.com
You won't be disappointed. This game has a great story too it, so you can't complain there. The game is mostly a non stop fighting game where you pretty much fight hand to hand but common its batman you still get his cool gadgets. The graphics to this game are great so don't make the mistake of getting lost by getting Arkham City first.
