Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman was never something that I really got into. I didn’t see the Jack Nicholson Joker, nor did I see the Ben Affleck Batman (those might even be from the same film, or I might have made up the Ben Affleck thing) and I sure as hell never read the comic books. I suspect a lot of people were in the same boat until Heath Ledger’s Joker burst onto our screens in The Dark Knight – scoring an posthumous Oscar for his stunning performance. Alongside that release, however, a Batman game was released.
Batman: Arkham Asylum was released to incredible critical reviews. The game was small scale; based in Arkham Asylum the game focused on Batman’s retrieval of his gear, unlocking new, more challenging areas of the mad house. Your progressed as you would do through a Metroid style game; fighting bosses and backtracking to previously beaten areas to hunt for secrets with your new powers.
