    Based on the comics rather than the movies, Eidos has the license to explore what is probably the darker avenue of the two main Batman franchises.

    • Contained environment. Asylum to be reminiscent of "Bioshock"
    • Combat & investigative work, he's a fighter AND a detective
    • The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and more
    • Boss battles where gadgets could work better than brawling.
    • Confirmed for PS3, 360 and PC. Release date "sometime in 2009"
    I like the sound of this one too! Sounds darker than the other game in production, and with a lot of enemies in it could contain some really dark and twisted mini-worlds and scenarios. Wonder if it's online too.

    Looks good, hope the gameplay matches it.

    I'm a big Batman fan, the comics and the Nolan films anyway so my geek-o-meter is kicking in.

    There's positives from those few screens i've seen already for me.

    The main one is that Joker is ''The Killing Joke'' Joker, which became the template for the comics from then on, in the wake of ''The Dark Knight Returns'' it's the start of when the Bat comics got back on form, and to an extent began the whole ''gritty realism'' in the genre.

    Arkham Asylum itself as well as being part of the mythos is also one of the better Batman graphic novels of that era, written by Grant Morrisson it really fleshes out some of the villians with insights into their psyche, again leading to much stronger stories in future comics.

    I'm hoping gameplay wise it maybe works Splinter Cell-ish, and manages to delve into the whole detective side of Batman as well as some kung-fu ass kicker in a cape. Just read the bold type more instead of looking at the pretty pictures heh, sweet it is going that route.

    Fingers crossed anyway, looks like they've opted for the best source material to base the game on so that's a big plus.

    Fuck yes, I love the look of it!! The Joker looks really good and I'm looking forward to seeing Harley as well, my 2 favorite characters! :D It would be good if there was a online co-op mode, or some kind of one player as Batman one player as an enemy type of game.

    Superb, can't remember the last time I enjoyed a demo so much! Graphics, music and atmosphere are excellent, the controls are great and I love the different styles of combat and the different methods it gives you.

    Detective mode is awesome :D

    PS3 get the Joker as a playable character too. Hopefully he has his own side missions and it's not just a skin.

    Re: Batman : Arkham Asylum [Rocksteady Studios, Eidos]

    There is fighting but the second part to the end of the demo leaves you thinking it will be more like splinter cell/ MGS where sneaking around taking the bad guys out is the best option. But they have a good fighting mechanism down where you can counter and attack kinda like Jackie Chan where you block a punch from behind, kick someone in front of you and then jump kick a third guy.

    Hugely impressed by this, anyone know how many hours it'll take to complete? Tempted to pre-order now as long as it's not a short game.

    I don't know the length of the story Placebo but there are some challenge rooms for longevity and i recall a video showing how you get different rewards for doing more "Batman" style stuff like using gas bombs and stuff to take people out without them seeing you.

    Hmm not a big fan of tenuous ways to expand the length of a game, like timed mode and shit like that :(

    Besides FIFA 10 this is the game for me to buy this year. The demo oozes quality and sheer enjoyment. Best superhero game ever.
