Excerpt: Arkham Asylum is one of those places that could only exist in a fantasy world. I mean, if you have a slew of deranged geniuses with the cunning and resourcefulness to break out of any jail at any time, why would you try to collect them all in one place?
Summary: Ultimately, Batman: Arkham Asylum succeeds because it's a great game, with or without the license. It seamlessly transitions between beat-‘em-up brawler, intense stealth action, and exploration-friendly adventure without missing a beat.
Pros: A great story that makes videogame clichés feel fresh and natural., Seamless transition between different gameplay types, Gorgeous visuals and art design
Cons: Camera annoyances are a life-and-death issue., Challenge Mode is an afterthought.
Excerpt: While other superheroes merely catch the crooks and then parade around with smug smirks, Batman goes out of his way to get inside the criminal mind and twist it into submission; that alone makes him one of my favorite comic book characters.
Conclusion: F1 2015 is the best racing title in the series if you’re primarily focused on gameplay mechanics, which should be the majority of people reading this review. I feel as if the developers have pretty much nailed the gameplay.
Excerpt: We've been eagerly waiting for this Batman release for some time now, and fortunately we weren't disappointed. Developer Rocksteady Studios has created an exemplary game that, whilst not without flaws, will keep fans happy for months to come.
Pros: The gameplay/controls are simple but perfect for what they are trying to do. Fun story to follow. The Joker is awesome. You really feel like Batman. Lots to do and explore. Tons of wonderful toys to play with. Good mix of stealth and combat. Some fun boss fights. Challenge rooms that allow you to...
Cons: Riddles and hidden items can ruin the pacing. Some riddles may make you feel like you are missing something when in fact they cannot be solved/found until you reach a certain plot point. Lots of boring backtracking to find items. Gargoyle statues can simplify stealth gameplay a bit too much.
Conclusion: Still, this does little to hide the fact that this is one of the best games of not only 2009, but one of the best superhero video games ever made. Regardless of whether you love the film, the comics, or both, you really should check this game out!
Excerpt: Metroidvania/3rd Person Action A good Batman game? Sounds like insanity. It’s hard to find a good Batman videogame, so hard in fact that if you were inclined to play one you’d have to go all the way back to the late 80′s to find a really good one, probably by Ocean or maybe Sunsoft if you’re in...
Conclusion: No vale la pena comprar esta versión si jugaste la versión estándar, mejor espera la secuela; pero si no lo has probado, no esperes más, termínalo y enlista tu bati arsenal para la secuela, que promete mejorar los pocos puntos débiles que tuvo este gran título.
Pros: La historia de cómo el Guasón (The Joker) toma como rehén a la isla de Arkham y Batman debe evitar que la locura se expanda hasta Ciudad Gótica, está brillantemente escrita y ejecutada en esta pieza de entretenimiento digital. Batman se ve y se juega como nunca antes lo hizo en ningún videojuego....
Cons: Que esta versión aunque incluye la posibilidad de verse en 3D y ofrece 4 nuevos mapas, no justifica el gasto si ya lo jugaste previamente; la opción 3D deslava los colores del juego y le quita mucho chiste a los gráficos.
