About

Batman: Arkham Asylum as an action-adventure game developed by Rocksteady Studios. It is the first installment in the Batman: Arkham series which is based on Batman comic series.

Batman successfully captures Joker and transports him to the Arkham Asylum on the Arkham Island. Batman suspects Joker of surrendering intentionally hence why the hero decides to escort Joker personally. Joker breaks away from the security frees all the inmates and captures the asylum. Batman sets out to restore order in Arkham Asylum.

Played from a third-person perspective, the gameplay of Batman: Arkham Asylum can be divided into three types: world exploration, stealth and beat 'em up. Batman explores the asylum while solving puzzles and using his wide range of gadgets. If Batman is spotted, the game turns into a beat 'em up featuring fast hand-to-hand combat. Batman himself does not use any weapons due to his moral choices while the enemies grow stronger and begin using different weaponry as the game progresses.

In some cases, while confronting a group of enemies, it is suggested that Batman's actions should not be spotted and the game turns into a stealth action.

-Riddler trophies add a layer to the collection aspect of the game, but not the main story.
"Batman: Arkham Asylum gets out with a score of 8.7 - it really is a great game, and the things that prevent it from scoring more are related not to the quality of the game itself, which is top notch, but to the aspects that to me should make a part of a true Batman experience and adaptation and are missing from this title."

«Time-tested»
It's a shame I discovered this masterpiece just recently. BAA has everything you want from dark action game and more! Light stealth? Check. Interesting and iconic characters? Check. Dark and twisted atmosphere of mental asylum? Check. Super enjoyable combat? Check, for god sake! Can't wait to play all the sequels. 
«Can’t stop playing»
A really great game perfectly portraying the Dark Knight and the Batman comic-universe.
