The "Game of the Year" Edition was released last Friday (26 March 2010).

PS. Arkham Asylum 3D: Does it work? (ComputerAndVideoGames.com)

...However we also have to say it doesn't quite have that wow factor that makes us think this is the future of gaming. On console anaglyph 3D simply doesn't make a compelling enough case to have us gushing and call it a 'must have' feature for all titles from here on in. The 3D in Arkham Asylum, gently rather than radically enhances an already great gaming experience . It's nice enough option to have certainly, but for the moment we won't be betting the farm on anaglyph console 3D just yet.

GOTY is 3D and not good 3D by all accounts.

About half way through this game and its been amazing from start to finish. If you like story driven games with great combat and the need to use your brain now and then dont miss it.

Definitely one of the better games last year, especially if you are a Batman fan.

"Batman: Arkham Asylum" was my own choice of (single player/offline) game of 2009.
"Killzone 2" was my favoured online multiplayer title.

The "Game of the Year" Edition adds support for "TriOviz 3D" (a patented process designed to add depth to a game as long as players are wearing the 3D glasses included).

The previously released (either by pre-order incentives, at-cost or free to download digital delivery, or issued within Exclusive Collectors Edition or Standard Edition releases, in Europe &/or the US) six "Challenge Map" game packs are also included. Two of these Exclusive downloadable Maps were available on the PlayStation Store last Thursday at a cost of £1.99 each.

Uncharted 2 is clearly better than this though and definitely more deserving of the prize.

This game is good but not slightly overrated imo.

Great performance from Mark Hamill as the Joker as well!

"Clearly better" is a very subjective view. I agree it deserved to be recognised for the technological achievements, but for me it wasn't a clear choice.

I have had "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune", "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves", & "Batman: Arkham Asylum" all from the day of release.

Even with the benefit of online gaming, I lost interest in "Uncharted 2:..." very quickly (just like I did with the first in the series). I cannot put a reason on this as I like graphic adventure titles, action games, & shooters, and I like the (earlier) "Tomb Raider" titles, LucasArts' "Indiana Jones" games, and first (not third) person shooter titles are my favourite genre.

Nathan Drake just doesn't keep my interest. I was part of the Beta Test team for the multiplayer aspects of "Uncharted 2:..." & I missed the experience when the testing period came to an end, but after playing "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" I told myself that I wasn't going to buy any more in the franchise. I forced myself this time around & found the “story mode” had very little to engage me whilst playing (as I found previously with the first title).

I played online for a few weeks & then decided I wasn’t getting anything out of it any longer & have only returned twice since when my kids have wanted to play against me.


"Batman: Arkham Asylum" I also have not finished, but unlike other titles I own that are in an unfinished state I look forward to going back to it. (If it wasn't for "Battlefield: Bad Company 2" being released "Batman:..." would be on my playlist at present).

I don't want to play "Uncharted 2:..." again.

I do admit, however, that I am a fan of the Batman character, & this has to skew the appeal of the title to me. I will probably buy the Game of the Year Edition of "...Arkham Asylum".

How are you finding "Heavy Rain"? I returned my Collector's Edition to HMV in a sealed state after the Demo version did not change my opinion of the title up until that point.

I mention this as I am guessing this title will feature quite highly in the review lists for next year's awards ceremonies.

I am not a Batman fan, but the atmosphere, story, graphics and gameplay in this game are absolutely astounding. It is a work of art IMO. This is the only game I have ever finished, then carried on playing to complete all the side tasks (Riddler Challenges in this game).
I would say this is probably the best game I have ever played- and I have been playing games for 30 years!
I cannot wait for the sequel to this. It is also produced by a British company!

I loved Heavy Rain, not too sound like too much of a quim but at this point I would say that it is possibly the best game I have ever played, very closely followed by the first Bioshock.

I spent around 2 months on Uncharted 2, continuously playing it for an hour or so and then going back a week or two later, I think the MP is great but I haven't really spent all that much time with it.

I'd say out of the games which were nominated for this BAFTA it deserved to win though. The games industry is still a bit juvenile compared with the film industry and to win a major award the game needs to be a platinum seller, otherwise titles like Facade and Edmund would be contenders for the BAFTA instead of B:AA and Modern Warfare 2. B:AA is a good game as far as I'm concerned but I just don't see anything all that astounding about it. It's really just a platform/hack and slash title with a famous superhero in it at the end of the day as far as I can see.
