Is Batman Arkham Asylum Worth It?

23 Replies 609 Views Created 08-03-2011

I normally stay away from cross platform games, but with the new batman taking the character save on to the next game, I'm thinking it might be worth getting the first one to extend my fun of the game.

 

Is it worth getting?

 

I'm not a Batman fan or anything so that comic book side of things doesn't add any appeal.

It's good. I wouldn't pay retail price for it, think got it for a fiver on Steam sale (PC) worth a tenner, I'd say.

I don't read comic books either, but Batman AA is very good game and if you plan to play Arkham City this year I think you should buy it. I started this game three times but save game got corrupted. I will try for the 4th time now.

I have Waterfields1 to thank for this inquiry and the more I'm looking at it, the closer I get to buying it. It's only a tenner after all, but I'm buying Killzone 3 today...

Out of all the Comic Book character games that have come to consoles/PC, this is probably the best one out of the lot. The game as a whole is top notch.

 

Never liked any of the other games out there for Superman/Iron Man/Spiderman as they were just the same games, with different disguises.

 

Batman AA is actually a game they worked on to actually give you a quality title, with excellent visuals, decent level design and voice overs to match.

 

Well worth it.

It really is a fantastic game, especially if your a fan of Batman anyway. Its got everything that makes Batman; excellent melee combat, stealth em up gameplay, gadgets for investigating crime scenes, dark and sinister atmosphere etc. Not only that but its only adapted from the best source material, the comics.

 

And since you could buy the game for as cheap as a tenner, theres no excuse.

Aye, of course it's worth it! Get it, NAOW! :D But seriously, it's a very good game. Being a fan of the Comics and stuff, you'd be supprised how much they put into this game. I totally fell in love with it. It's definently worth it. I recommend you get it. And if your a fan of Mark Hamill's Joker, you'll certanly love it. Top notch voice acting, i can tell you tha. xDD

From your OP about multiplat games Batman AA was built on PS3 and/or simultaneous the same time on other platforms it looks and plays great the challenge rooms are well challenging but the main game is quality.
