NY Times: Batman: Arkham Asylum Review

NY Times writes: "Who doesn't like a pleasant surprise?

Playing the new Batman: Arkham Asylum game, I couldn't stop thinking about Walker Percy's foreword to "A Confederacy of Dunces," John Kennedy Toole's posthumously published masterwork. Recounting his profound reluctance to read a barely legible carbon copy by a dead, unknown writer, Mr. Percy writes: "In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good. I shall resist the temptation to say what first made me gape, grin, laugh out loud, shake my head in wonderment. Better let the reader make the discovery on his own.'"

The story is too old to be commented.
