Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Contents
GOTY includes the base game, as well as four extra Challenge Maps for you to try:
- Crime Alley,
- Scarecrow Nightmare,
- Totally Insane,
- Nocturnal Hunter.
The game starts with Batman transporting Joker to the Arkham Asylum – a psychiatric hospital that also serves as a prison for the most dangerous and mentally ill villains. The place is full of unpredictable criminals, some of which were sent there by Batman himself.
Judging by how easy Joker gave up, Batman suspects that he might be up to something and insists to accompany his armed escort deeper into the complex. After reaching a certain point, Batman is not allowed to proceed further, and Joker with help of Harley Quinn seizes the opportunity to escape the prison while trapping Batman inside. The Dark Knight must escape the facility and thwart Joker’s plans.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is played from a third-person perspective and allows you to control the legendary Batman himself. You will spend most of your time exploring the facility and the Arkham Island inhabited by the criminally insane. Batman can run, jump, climb, crouch, glide using his cape and use a grappling hook.
Encounters in the game can be usually resolved by either direct combat or sneaky tactics and utilizing available gadgets, such as the batarang, the line launcher, and the Batclaw. Fighting multiple enemies at once is easy and flashy, as it comes down to using just three buttons to attack, stun, and counter enemy strikes – Batman can quickly move from one enemy to another and chain his strikes to perform effective combinations of attacks.
Defeating enemies rewards you with experience points needed to level Batman up. Each level gives you an additional upgrade point you can spend on a variety of upgrades, such as improved armor, increased number of batarangs thrown at once, or completely new moves to use in combat.
Arkham Asylum game met with a very positive response from both critics and players alike. Reviewers often marked it as the best Batman experience available at that time, and even as the years have passed it is still a strongly recommended title, especially for the fans of The Dark Knight. Reviewers mostly praised the smooth and fast-paced combat combined with stealth elements, but they also noted amazing graphics, an interesting story, and a great atmosphere.
