Batman: Arkham Asylum

  I finally had a chance to play Batman: Arkham Asylum. Yes I know, I'm a little behind the times, but none the less, here are my thoughts on the game.

  Batman: Arkham Asylum takes place at Arkham Asylum. If you don't know much about the Batman universe, I suggest that you look it up. The actual story and game play were great. It kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. In Batman: Arkham Asylum you go through Arkham Asylum trying to capture The Joker before he executes his crazy plans in which you need to figure out, while you're also trying to contain everyone else he sets free to run amok in Arkham, or to do his bidding.

  I played on the PlayStation 3, and the controls on that were great. There was only one part where I got annoyed with how the controls worked. It involved my needing to get over a little fence type thing, that was on a platform, and I couldn't just run and jump over it, I actually had to stop and then hit the action button when I got to it, just to climb over it. But as I said, that was only an issue on one part of the game.

 The random Easter eggs, or secrets, are what they are called in the game, were a cool addition. I kept going back and forth trying to find as many secrets as possible while still wanting to continue the story in the game itself. Using Arkham Asylum as the location for the game allowed the developers to include a bunch of the Batman Villains without making it feel like they were trying to hard to include them.

  I tried my best to talk about the game without giving spoilers. At this point I probably should care due to how old the game is, but if someone had told me how Arkham Asylum went, I probably wouldn't have played the game, and enjoyed it as much as I did. Overall I have to give Batman: Arkham Asylum a 4.9 out of 5 on my gaming list. It's definitely a game worth playing.
