Batman: Arkham Asylum is so overrated. It was the most boring, unoriginal game I played in 2009.

This game had to be the best superhero game that I have ever played. The graphics and atmosphere really enhanced the story. Can't wait for the second. Most overated game of the year was Modern Warfare 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You probally liked it.

I loved this game, best batman game ever, and how the orginal voice actors form the classic 90's cartoon reprised there characters, if your not a fan of batman this game definelty isnt for you thats for sure.

GLoRyKnoT2920d ago

Yet im not a fan of the batman & loved the game. (note the word loved = over) will indeed be getting the next 1 tho 4-sho:)

DarthMoose2920d ago

Not reallu a huge fan myslef, but I loved the watchin the 90's cartoon and many of the films except batman and robin, I never read to many of the comics, there just wayyyy to much history, i'll stick with marvel. Im a huge x-men fan myself, still waitng on an epic x-men game.

It was a decent game, but I agree that it is overated. I liked it enough to be interested in the sequel, though.

no it is not overrated .

It's the best batman game compared to a list of at least 25 games ranging from good to mediocre .

Even without considering the license , its history and its appeal , on its own , as a game , it was something the closest thing we had in years (till recently) to a great (traditional) metroid/castlevania kind of experience on home consoles .

The length of the game was just right , because of an impeccable sense of pacing and flow .

It's also the best use yet of unreal engine 3 on consoles . There are a few games that are prettier , like Mass effect 2 , or mostly released afterward , but almost all of them got technical issues ranging from minor to big , that didnt really affect Batman in comparison , even on ps3 .

The battle system is intuitive ,very easy to get into, but gotta be mastered . Something most recent beat them up cant even claim .

At last the voice acting is top notch .

I dont think the game is perfect , far from it , but it deserved its accolade .

It's the word "overrated" that seems quite overrated and abused around here .
Most people the game rallied arent even huge fan of Batman and had between none to very little experience with the comics , how would an overrated game do that ?

its one of the best super hero games made

TheBatman_Fanatic2920d ago

It is THE BEST super hero game made!

VictoriousOne2920d ago

It is THE BEST comic-based video-game ever made. And that's the main reason why it's critically acclaimed.
