Batman Arkham Asylum for Xbox 360 video game consoles

I've always been a big fan of Batman. I've always enjoyed the movies, loved the video games, played with the toys, and just all sorts of stuff! He has always been my favorite hero, at least when it comes to fake characters. I love the fact that, although he has no superpowers, he is still really a tough man and is able to use his smarts and his gadgets to defeat the super powerful baddies. I've always pulled for him, recently getting into the comic books, and that's been really enjoyable! Then the Christopher Nolan directed Batman Begins and The Dark Knight came out, and those awesome movies really fired up my love for Batman once again.

But as a big video game fan, at some point or another, I wonder if there will be a game about it. I can obviously enjoy movies and toys and such and not need a game based on them, but there is always that part of me that wants to play a game about the movie, book, or whatever it is. I can remember hearing that they were working on a The Dark Knight movie game, but that never happened. Which honestely ends up being fine, because what I found far beats any movie tie-in game that could ever exist. Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman AA for short, is the best super hero video game ever produced. Period. There is no need to even compare it to other games, for it's far above any other easily. The game is, as I like to refer to it, a perfect game for Batman and what he can do. An example of what I mean by that is there may be a cool Spider Man game out there. He can jump, run fast, do web powers and the such, and the list just goes on. But in none of those games, sans SpiderMan Shattered Dimensions, do you actually feel like how Spiderman should play. None of them have you feeling like you're watching a movie about Spiderman, because of how realistic his moves and gamplay are. That's the complete opposite in Batman AA.

In that game you really feel like Batman. The background and everything around it is dark in color, and frankly kind of creepy. That's how Batman is supposed to feel. He's supposed to be a Dark Hero, hence being called the Dark Knight. His games should feel rugged and tough, with a lot of things that can scare the crap out of you. I can't tell you how many times a guy would jump out of the corner, while I was playing the game at night, and it would scare me and make me yell. Maybe I just get scared easily, but very rarely do I do that to something in a video game. But this stands out as more like a movie than a game. You really feel like Batman when you use the different devices to make your way through the game, and seeing all the different villians and dealing with them really feels like a movie experience as well. The dialog really fits the game very well, and it adds so much depth that most games just don't have nowdays.

The Joker is really freaky looking, and his twisted and crazy personality are shown throughout the game as he deals with the Arkham security men and takes them out with no regret. This game is truly how a Batman, or any hero game for that matter, should feel. You should feel like you are the hero, and the environment and characters should make you feel right while playing the game. Some games with heroes are really fun, but they don't really add a major depth like this game. The best news, in my opinion, is that this isn't going to be a one hit wonder, but it's going to have a sequel in Batman Arkham City. You can even get Robin as DLC if you pre-order from Best Buy! That's exciting, if you like Robin that is. Hopefully the game, which is said to be five times as large as the original, continues the awesomeness and playability of Batman Arkham Asylum.
