Using a great variety of gadgets you must make your way around the island, and the asylums halls to find and stop the joker. The game uses a 3-button combat system, but with a great number of gadget abilites which Batman can unlock. This makes for a very cinematic combat experience when fighting the Joker's goons.

Sidenote: I wish the series continued with the Metroidvania elements because a 2D Metroidvania in the style of Metroid Dread with Batman would go hard as hell.

Arkham Asylum is such a great game. The atmosphere, boss fights, and even that crazy 4th wall break are some of the best in the trilogy. Honestly, I wish we got a better remaster because it takes away the darkest from the game. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a remake in a couple of years.

What a banger. This game nails the atmosphere & aesthetic of Batman. About every other year I find myself playing through it again. THAT is how you know you've achieved something special.

Final verdict: Buy it
