The Dark Knight must bring order to the corridors of Gothams psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane in this adventure title that blends combat and stealth.
Rather than follow the events of the modern day Batman films, Batman Arkham Asylum is more closely linked to the style of the comics themselves, offering a heavier and more menacing look for the Dark Knight. When the inmates of Arkham Asylum are set loose by the Joker, its up to the Batman to roam its dark halls and regain control.
Batman is no stranger to the world of video games, but few have managed to replicate the characters use of stealth, striking fear into the villains he faces. Arkham Asylum offers brutal combo moves for up-close combat, but Batmans real strength lies in his ability to observe each environment and pick off enemies one by one. As well as the usual bevy of thugs for Batman to mow through, some of the comics most infamous villains are on hand, including Poison Ivy.
Arkham Asylum is one of the first Batman titles to capture the style and atmosphere of the more adult comic series, giving Batman a series of stealth abilities more suited to his superhero roots.
