Akrham 2 will be a great game if they keep everything from the first game intact and make more improvements like more gadgets. Wouldnt it be cool to have an open world environment like GTA 4 and drive the batmobile around and the batjet to locations. That would be great. If I recall from the game there was a bank holdup that came over the radio of Two-Face robbing Gotham First National Bank.

Yes, some of them you need upgrades for. As for the clue, try to figure out what it is they want you to look at. Is is something to read? Is it a statue? etc.

Arkam II WOWZA!!!!!!!

I am still working on the "too small" I figured to step back, but still can't get the right position. I will just keep at it. Seems like maybe some of the riddler trophies can only be picked up with certain upgrades? I was unable to figure out how to get the one in the cave that was in plain sight. This is the level where you line up the clue. And where you need to climb everywhere.

Glad to see you all enjoying the game. Just in time too; at the VGAs, they announced Arkham II. It has video of the misfits running around in Gotham City. That should be fun.

Man Lobo, I can't believe you beat my score...

As for the riddles, for the too small ones, you need to back up a little. Sometimes you need to zoom in. Others, like the question mark ones, need to be alligned right. This sometimes requires hanging or getting at a different angle.

I am really getting into it.
Didn't realize some of the ways to analyze things. Like the spider Arkham stone thing. Didn't know I had to "detective mode it" so I missed a few.
Also didn't know to do that with the riddles. I picked up a riddler trophy and thought that was it. I kept wondering why the riddle came back up. Now I know you Dmode that also.
I can't figure out some though. It says "subject to small" when I try to answer/identify the riddle.

I must say that the game is just fantastic. I am amazed at how into it you feel when moving around and taking people out. I feel like Batman!
The writing is my biggest gripe, and some of the voice acting is not that great on the cut scenes.

Yeah, I've never been a big fan of those time limits. If it is a racing game, it is one thing, but otherwise it drives me crazy.

Yeah I know what you mean. I like being able to pull the floor out of from thugs, blowing up the walls near them and other things. Knocking them out with batarang. I like that one medal of knocking out 3 of them with the remote one. Grappling them over the ledge is great. Shock and Awe is a level I have had trouble beating due to the time limits.

I'm pretty sure it has to be the same round. I don't know how someone can do it without an upgrades though, considering some of it requires (at least for me) that foam exploding spray, etc.

BTW, on those predator challenges, one of my favorite things to do is use the grappling hook and yank thugs over the rail.

This one guy got the 3 medals in the challenge without any upgrades. I am like what the heck. I can barely get 1. Also does anyone know if you don't get the one medal in predator game mode that if you get it in the next round but not get the other 2. Or do you have to get all 3 in a single go around.

lol; there is actually a video on the xbox dashboard for doing that. It is one of the IGN videos; I don't think it is the one with Jessica Chobot, but the other ones. It might be called IGN Strategize or something. You'll probably have to pull up the previous videos.

Personally speaking though, they make it look easy, but it is impossible. lol; you never know though, you might get it with practice and patience. lol

I do not think that I will be able to get the Perfect Knight acheivement due to the fact I can't keep my combos going in the challenge maps to make those medals. Does anyone have any hints or pointers in trying to get all the medals.

Thanks for the heads up. I think I will head home and try to beat your score on the the first challenge. 7,000 right. I think I will beat it. I think I got better by getting my first medal on it. LOL.

lol; it is really great. And yes, if you beat it on hard, you unlock the normal. I didn't go very far on hard because you don't get the yellow indicators to tell you when the thugs are going to attack. If the load time between dying and playing was less, I'd probably stick it out. I can only take the Joker laughing at me so many times.

As for the challenges, they are fun. Don't forget to download the FREE challenge packs.

I found all the secrets in the game and I am currenly working on the Big Mystery. The Spirit of Arkham. I think from the clues that I already have that I know where to find him. Then I will work on the other parts of the game which include getting medals in the challenge modes.

Finally beat the game and I have to admit that this game took me to the extremes just like Uncharted 2. Currently seeking out the hidden secrets of the game and I may possibly try to beat it on Hard. I guess the question is if you beat it on hard do you unlock the acheivements for Normal too. LOl. Kill two birds with one stone.

Yes it does remind me alot of bioshock. I love that the used some of the music from the dark night soundtrack like the jokers insanity music and it give you that Asylum effect to it. I love all the gadget that batman uses. Man that zip is fun. I liked that part where the bad guys were across that way making fun of batman only to have batman whip out the zip line and zip over there to beat them up. I guess if you have a bat jet which i though I would get to use instead it makes a dramtic entrance and drops off your zip cord. What about his batmobile. I guess he will have to get a new one after this. LOl.

lol, I've heard you've been busy running in marathans lately. I guess that is a good excuse...lol You'll have to post a NYC Marathon review for us.

For you batman owners, don't forget to grab the FREE downloadable maps.

As for the killing, I think they say he knocks them out, but I don't understand how they are knocked out when he hangs them, lol.

Yeah, great game though. Great story telling, etc. The hidden items are actually fun to find, plus they add to your abilities, etc.

Had a chance to play this game now that I officially own it and I have to say. Wow. I mean Wow. I can see why this game with Uncharted 2 are up for game of the year. This game gives justice to the DC Comics Francise. The only thing that I don't get is why there is so much death in this game. Guards are getting killed left and right. Doctors getting blown up and so forth. Still a great mix of combat and crime solving not to mention the tons of extra content to seek out and find.

For those of you that have the game, you may have noticed a message on the main screen that says "Free DLC" and a count down. Well, in 2 more days it will be here. The free DLC is 2 new challenge maps. One beat-them-up and one grab-em-in-the-shadows.

lol, yeah I was crazy. Just couldn't put it down. I think the actual game is about 12-15 hours, plus a couple extra for seeking out all the hidden stuff.

For the library, you may want to use your detective mode Batman. Besides this, the map may also tell you some clues. Not only marking the location, but also telling you verbal clues in the top left corner.

I will throw a review on the Madden 2010 thread that is already up.

The best thing about Arkham (so far) is the feel. I can't really remember the last time I felt really immersed in a game. Odd as it is, you really feel like you are Batman. everything is fluid and natural.

I saw you playing Madden over the weekend. My co-worker is what I call a Madden zombie. He is one of those that go into Game Stop every year, glazed eyed, and buys the latest Madden. He says it is probably the best one yet. Would you want to maybe start another thread with your own thoughts?

As for Batman, yeah it is kind of crazy. The actual game has a little different start than the demo and once you get started, it is very hard to stop. The story just keeps driving you.

As for the hidden items, there are some maps left around. Once you find those, you get a general idea where to look for the items. It took me a while after beating the game to find them all.

For those of you with it or getting it in the future, maybe you can post your challenge scores here...since some have it on PS3 and some on 360.

Wow, seriously. I bought the game and haven't even played yet! I did play the demo, and it was pretty sweet to say the least.

I picked up madden10 also and I have been playing that.

Crazy me, I finished the game and even went around and collected all 240+1 hidden items. I just was obsessed about it.

I'm still 85% complete though, because there are certain objectives in the challenge mode to complete. These are fun because it shows other ways to do things that you might not think of. For instance, pulling a thug over the railing using your bathook.

I think that you have to get that way in the game. I know that part of the story that the oracle aka batgirl is wheelchair bound becuase she was shot in the back by I believe the joker. I guess that why Batman works alone.

rofl, I didn't mean to tempt you to get it..lol I'm just trying to show there is some life in the demo. Even in the demo I think there are things that people haven't seen.

If you do pick it up, hope you like it as much as me. FYI, the game does get a bit dark and twisted. Nothing worse than what was in Batman Begins or Dark Knight.

lol, yeah that is why I'm trying to give you all something to do in the demo. Look around and find those two riddler trophies.

Here are two more things to try in the demo. In the first area, where you are jumped by a bunch of thugs, try hitting the "A" button twice. It will cause Batman to jump over oncoming enemies and you can then hit them from behind. See if you can clear them all w/o getting hit once. In the challenge modes, this gives you a "dark knight" bonus.

Second for the demo, in the big room where the guys have guns, what are some of the creative ways you can take them out? Have you tried hiding inside the floorboards, letting them walk over you, and then popping up and taking them out quietly from behind?

Speaking of that big room, I'm not sure if it is in the demo, but in the game there is an interview tape that can be found on a desk there. These are quite interesting. I wasn't a big Batman fan going into this, but the tapes are really helping build the stories surrounding our hero.

For those of you with the free demo: did you find at least two Riddler trophies? These are the green question marks that you can pick up throughout the game and at least two can be found in the demo.

In the demo, you might also see other things that look just out of reach, but that comes later when you get upgraded equipment. Kind of Metroid style...get upgrades, come back, and access new areas.

Did anyone else get this yet? Anyone planning on it?

I stand by my mini-review below; the game is great and is continuing to get fantastic reviews. I worked last night, but still had about 30 minutes to play. Had enough time to take out some snipers, machine gunners, and groups of thugs. After the area was clear, had some time to collect some hidden goodies.

Yeah I was trying to for the Genocide acheivement of killing 53,000 zombies. I was off to a good start killing like 3,000 with a car that I found. As the days go on there is more zombies to whip out at once.

lol, I still need to play Dead Rising. Capcom is re-releasing it with Lost Planet and DMC4...all three games for $40. Should be mid-September. Dead Rising 2 is almost here too!

As for Batman, if my review below isn't enough, people are Twitter are saying stuff like: "awesome game", "don't want to go to bed", and "can't put this thing down".

BTW, I saw a video of the Joker in a challenge mode...now I HAVE to have it. Here's hoping the DLC comes soon for us 360 owners. Joker uses his gun, a trap, some spray, etc. Totally cool.

I had a feeling that you were going to get that game. I saw you playing last night and all I had to play was dead rising. I am trying to power up my guy to unlock some rescue acheivements.

OMG! To start, y'all know how I was on the fence about this one. I definitely don't consider myself a Batman fan. My main concern after playing the demo was the fundamentals of the game. The demo didn't present anything new or awesome, so I thought all the rave reviews were from Batman fanboys.

Well, after reading the 17th or so review where the reviewer was drooling all over themselves, I thought I had to try this. The same thing happened to me with Bioshock...I had no real clue about the game until the week it came out and all the reviewers were jumping for joy. I wasn't disappointed then, and I'm not disappointed now.

This game is probably the best game to come out so far this year. I thought the reviewers were blowing smoke when they said it could be "game of the year". Well, they might be right. I know it is only August, but it will probably be a nomination at least.

If you played the demo in the store, that doesn't represent the game at all. The demo in the store is one of several challenge modes. The challenge modes are kind of like zombie mode in WaW or horde mode in GoW2. You unlock more challenge modes as you go and you are given a score on each of them. These scores are posted to a leaderboard and you can see how you rank among friends and the world. These modes will keep the game fresh, long after you are done with the single player mode.

As for the single player mode...if you played the demo on Live or PSN, you are only getting a taste. For instance, the opening scene where Joker is wheeled in, is actually a lot longer. You can move batman along the corridor as Joker is wheeled around. It kind of reminds me of CoD4's opening credits in play style.

Remember the room in the demo where you take out 5 thugs? Well, this actually plays out differently in the game too. I happened to have upgraded my equipment by this point, to where I could hang from a gargoyle and then grab a thug as they walked by. Then I would leave them hanging from the gargoyle. What impressed me the most was how the NPC's would respond to this. They would come over and say, "who did this?" or "we'll have to cut him down later", etc.

As for the play style, please don't let the demo trick you. You get a decent amount of upgrades to your equipment where the style stays fresh. They use several different things to keep it going. They borrow stuff from Bioshock, Assasins Creed, Eternal Darkness, Splinter Cell, and Laura Croft and they actually make it work.

For those of you that like collecting stuff, there is lots of things to find, including 240 joker riddles. In the demo, you can find 2 joker trophies. You will also see a couple of things you think you can get to in the demo, but you won't be able to until you upgrade your equipment. There are also recordings to find (like Bioshock) which help you understand what went down at the Arkham Aslyum.

The bottom line is: the story is solid, the controls are fun, and the overall experience is engaging.

You are right. That deal sounds really good. To bad I dont have a gift card to that store right now. LOl. Else I would be there. That sucks that you can only be the Joker in challenge mode. What a way to try to sell one console over the other. I dont think that would be enough to beat out 360.

Great find SoHo! Thanks for sharing. I found out the information is true about the Joker for PS3; he isn't playable in the story mode, but is for all the challenge levels (which should be HUGE fun).

I'm with you Lobo, still on the fence. I've played the demo about 5 times and the in store PS3 demo once (the store demo is a challenge mode, demo on Live is part of the story mode).

The graphics and voice acting are all great, but I'm just not in the mood right now to be sneaky (aka Splinter Cell). The game is getting fantastic reviews still.

Whoever gets it, let us know what you think. That Toys R Us deal sounds like a steal. Hopefully they'll have more of those deals in the future.

BTW, did anyone hear about the deal at Toys R Us where you could get a $20 or $30 gift card if you bought Batman? I just found out about it. You have the buy the game today between 10:00am - 2:00 pm. If you're a member of the Rewards-R-Us club, you get the $30 gift card. If not, you get the $20 card.

I still like the demo and the combat mechanics. Plays like assassins creed with the close range attach mode. The ability to play detective as well is a great feature not to mention that you have to use your smarts to outwit your opponnents. I dont know about you but most of the time I would like to run in there head on and not think if that were really me would I run up to a guy with a machine gun. I dont think I would get far that way. Lol. Good thing we don't do that stuff like the movie gamer.

Yeah Tema, me too...especially since the major systems have been out for a while...there is quite the library of GREAT games. And now, at least for the 360, you can download these games directly to your console. $20-30 for games like Mass Effect and Bioshock...that is great!

The thing about this game (Batman) is the fantastic reviews and several people saying "this year's Bioshock". That has me almost sold because Bioshock was very much worth the initial investment.

Anyone else's thoughts? Will this be a great game with new elements and fantasic game play? Or, are we just hyped because you can be Batman? Or, maybe a little of both?

You know what I'm learning Ryan is that none of these games are worth the initial value...eventually they go down and I'm learning to wait...and buy use..espcially in today's market...Are you going to get it....eventually I will...but not to soon I'll give it some months...maybe 5 or 6 before I get it...and that's how I've been treating most games..except the wii exercise games...I get those right away...

I'm not sure if it's batman that makes this game good...I wish the demo was a little longer...I've not played any type of batman games in the past so I have nothing to compare them to...

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

I'm still wondering how good this game is. If it was a generic character, would it be as good? Or is it Batman that makes this game get the good reviews? Sure, there are some nice mechanics in it, but is it offering anything new? Do you all think it will be worth the price of admision?

That is true. But I am not sure if it will be available later down the road like when Soul Caliber had Yoda on one system and Darth Vader on another.

Here's another good review from Joystiq:

BTW, the PS3 version lets you play as the Joker. I think that's an extra that's not in the 360 version.

Wow, thanks for sharing that information. I just went over to metacritic and found all positive reviews so far. I guess I'm going to have to reconsider putting this on my list of games to check out. And I was hoping to avoid it. :(

Here are a couple of review snippits:
Game Master UK: Arkham Asylum is a game with the power to utterly captivate you and can stand proudly alongside modern classics such as "Resident Evil 4", "Gears of War," and "BioShock"...Simply put, Batman: Arkham Asylum is a masterpiece. [Sept 2009, p.66]

Game Informer:Batman: Arkham Asylum is this year's "BioShock," not just from the connection established with the world, but from its ability to innovate where new ideas are needed, and moreover, deliver an adventure unlike any other. [Sept 2009, p.82]

I got a new Game Informer a couple of days ago and both reviewers gave it a 9.5 and game of the month! Also, don't know if anyone heard this but if you preorder at Gamestop there is a extra Scarecrow mission included. Not trying to put a plug in for Gamestop just extra free content is always cool.

I've played the demo a lot. Probably my favorite demo besides Little Big Planet. I can't wait for the game to come out.

I played the demo this past week for a bit. I was like dang. I could not belive that the game could actually be that good. It plays like Assasings Creed that makes it pretty good and the ability to use your tools to find ways into areas and know what approach to make when dealing with villans with guns. This is going to be great with all the epic fights with batman villains. I couldnt put the game. I cant wait to see the achievement list.

FREE - Batman demo hit last Friday for both Xbox Live and PSN. At first, I was like "meh", but then it started to grow on me.

The graphics are pretty slick and the voice acting is where is started to hook me. They have the same voices from the animated series (including Luke Skywalker as the Joker).

The game play kind of reminded me of Ninja Gaiden with a little bit of puzzle solving and a dash of Splinter Cell.

I think the game will be good to play, but honestly don't see it being worth multiple play throughs. Here is where a subscription to GameFly or something might come in handy. We'll see though.

Anyone else play the demo? Thoughts?

In Batman: Arkham Asylum, the Dark Knight takes on his greatest challenge yet when he becomes trapped with all of his most dangerous villains inside the insane asylum of GOTHAM CITY - ARKHAM ASYLUM!
Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure that takes them to the depths of Arkham Asylum –Gotham’s psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Gamers will move in the shadows, instigate fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious villains who have taken over the asylum. Using a wide range of Batman’s gadgets and abilities, players will become the invisible predator and attempt to foil The Joker’s demented scheme. Batman: Arkham Asylum features an original story penned exclusively for the game by famous Batman author and five-time Emmy award winner, Paul Dini, whose credits include Lost season one and Batman: The Animated Series.

With amazing graphics and a moody, immersive setting, Batman: Arkham Asylum offers diverse gameplay options that push the envelope for all action, adventure and superhero games.
