Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham Asylum is a PC game for avid fans of the well-known superhero. The background story in this game has been written by the renowned Batman author, Paul Dini. This game is developed by Rocksteady Studios and it is slated to be released in the summer of 2009. Much anticipation prior to its release, fans can look forward to realistic graphics and a different setting in this game. Nathan Whitman, an associate producer at Warner Bros.' videogame division, is proud of the way Batman's cape is coming along in the game Batman: Arkham Asylum. “We've got a guy working full-time on cape physics,” Whitman says. “We expect Batman Arkham Asylum to not only be the biggest game of the summer but one of the stand-out games of the year,” Eidos’ head of UK marketing Jon Brooke told MCV. “It’s as close to perfect as we’ve ever come; it looks amazing, plays beautifully and has a rich twisting storyline with enormous replayability. I’m confident enough to say that it will set a new benchmark for licensed games and it’s going to establish itself as one of our best games ever.”

Features

In this game, everything would be different from the previous Batman games. Like per say, the superhero’s mantle will not be that stable as it always is. In fact, it will animate and blend with everything that will be going on in this game. Various gameplay options are present so that, in this matter, there will be a higher level gaming with this game. Sources say that following this game, many games in the future will employ the same gameplay tactics. Characters present in this game so far have been notified as the Joker, Commissioner Gordon, Riddler, Harley Quinn (who’s said to look sexier than the usual) and a couple of not-so-famous characters such as Killer Croc and Blue Beetle are also featured. As for the action sequences, the Batman: Arkham Asylum includes two trademark fighting modes which are the FreeFlow™ and the Invisible Predator™. What the FreeFlow mode does is it allows Batman to punch its enemies to consciousness but not death. As for the Invisible Predator mode, it allows you as Batman to combat your enemies silently. Another unconfirmed mode is the investigation mode which is something like scrutinizing the current situation and knowing what and who you are about to deal with. The Croc mode helps to attack your enemies in silence and a little detective work is included as well. In this mode, you will be able to save people as well and by doing so; you will earn points and achievements.
