Electronic Theatre In-depth Review: Batman: Arkham Asylum

The presentation of Batman: Arkham Asylum is fantastic. While the incredibly – and interestingly – detailed asylum itself steals the show, the character models are finely detailed and well animated. The cut-scenes are smoothly presented, and their slightly crisper character models are perhaps the only noticeable mark between the two console versions. While the PlayStation 3 release offers little to complain about, the Xbox 360 cut-scenes do appear of a slightly higher quality. The score and vocal qualities are of a similarly commendable quality, with a notable performance from Mark Hamill, though this may have more to do with the cunningly diplomatic game convention deliverance of his script than any individual passion for the role. (Batman, Batman: Arkham Asylum, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 92/100

I don't believe that the cut-scenes are higher quality in the 360 version for one second. They're just seeing things through tinted lenses. The games are identical, really.

The review say slightly, almost not noticeable and the troll that is submitting the review writes "higher quality" like if it were by a big margin. Beside, one of the rules for submitting news say to always use the original tittles!

cut scenes now that's what matters? What about it's Gameplay, controls, the color contrast, no wait there is one less hair on batmans chin in the ps3 version. So the 360 can handel more then the ps3 this proves that my money wasn't wasted!!!

please people grow up

The cutscenes are pre recorded, in the same way as Unchartered, to mask the loading.

I thought Uncharted cutscenes are rendered in-game.

They use engine assets but stream rather than display in real time, freeing time to load levels etc etc. Batman is no different though they do use higher detail modelling compared to the stuff you see ingame.

Awesome game. I bought the game on saturday, had it completed it Sunday simply because I couldn't put it down and went without sleep! Went in work tired and moody from lack of sleep but goddamn it was worth it.

Time to find all the riddles, trophies and play through on hard. And you know what? I'll relish every second of it!
