Who else is playing it? It's already out for XBOX360 and PS3 (I have the 360 version), and drops on PC & Steam 9/18 This is without a doubt the best superhero game, ever. I'd go so far as to say it's the best game released in 2009, any platform (so far). Premise: You are Batman (duh), returning the Joker to Arkham Asylum, which has been fully imagined for the first time in any medium as a sprawling compound on an island off the coast of Gotham. The Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill, who steals the show), soon takes over, and you have to return the place to order Story mode is good, full of a lot of variation in setting and gameplay, but for me the standout is the challenge maps There are two fighting modes: combat and predator In combat, you're basically in a room with a shitload of guys, and you have to beat copious amounts of ass. Luckily, you're Batman, and that's second nature. It gets more challenging when some of the inmates start picking up knives and stun batons (which can't be countered by regular moves), so not only do you have to fight all these guys, you have to strategize your actions while doing it. Comes with global leaderboards to ensure addictive replayability In predator, the enemies are all armed with guns, which can kill you pretty fast, so you have to stealth it, and take them down one by one, using your vast array of Bat-cessories The setting is awesome, the game is true to canon (almost all the classic characters are represented in one way or another; little details like bios telling you the date of a characters first appearance in Batman comics), superb voice acting and writing Oh, and there are 240 (!) challenges set up by the Riddler, easter eggs hidden all over the game that give you experience points So if you have it on XBOX, post your gamertag, and add me: "UMA PLATA". I'd love to compare some challenge scores! tl,dr: If you play this game, you play it AS BATMAN.
