Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
Advantages: Good graphics, soundtrack, playability and control system is relatively easy to master
Disadvantages: Programming is a bit shaky at times
Hi All ....ive been away for a while, but im back ready to start writing reviews again. ive been steadily working my through games on my 'to do' list - the latestwas batman arkham asylum. I heard from friends that this was a particularly good game and I have to say that they were right.
Firstly the one bad point....as this is an older game I think its 2008 the programming is a little shakey, by this I mean sometimes you can get stuck between a door or a rock and batman cant move, or sometimes you`ll take someone out and you`ll be in a corner and suddenly they will dissapear rather than falling to the ground. But this is one very small bad point in a list of good points.
The good points are that the graphics are very good, even for 2008, the soundtrack is very gothic batman esque and at times of hardship gets the blood pumping...you have got lots of batman characters that we know and love, such as the joker, harli-quin , bane etc and the voice overs, although corny, are fairly acceptable, even for a 30 year old man like myself (all too often these days voice actors have a terribly corny anti hero script and I find it hard to listen too)..also you have all the bat gadgets, the car....briefly, the belt with around 6 contraptions to master and the bat wing...also briefly.
The storyline is fairly well scripted, it does starts to get a bit repitive, beat these guys up, beat that boss , move to the next area etc....but just as it starts to get annoying the game is finished so its OK...also its not the biggest game in the world, but it should provide a fairly decent play time, even for single players like me, all to often games are modelled on their multiplayer capability and not their single player - I hate playing online and so I often get games that are quite short.
best of all is the batman - beat em up control system...this was all revolutionary at the time...but now other games, such as 'mad dogs' have nicked them. This system slows time down so that you can concentrate on beating up the right bad guys and not get flustered....plus its looks cool in slow mo.
Summary: All in all-a very good game - I shall be buying the sequel
