Did you get all of the achievements? I'm not really an achievement whore, but if I really like the game I'll go for 1000 gamer points.

I got the majority. Something like 37 of them. Ignored the '47000 uber combos in a row' type of achievements because they are just never worth pursuing.

The 20 hit combo is easy if you hop on the back of a Titan and let him swat baddies.

I've wrung every ounce of joy out of this one too - - and now I'm completely bored with it. The whole game, top to bottom, 100% can be completed in 4 days (max) with very little actual time physically spent playing.

Replay value in this game is extremely small (for me). Combo Challenges did not interest me; but Im completely done with them all (Combat Challenges are great though). The Riddler stuff was fun, but that too is over with. Crazies should still be roaming the Asylum after the game and not just Batman walking around pointlessly.

Just a warning might want to rent it first as $60 is a damn steep price.

What about the challenge stages? Anything there for ya? Also, MUCH DLC has been promised, with free DLC promised 'soon'. I only traded it in because I'm short on cash and new games to play.

I beat the game proper, and found all the riddler items but ONE arkham chronicle, in the botanical garden... I know the general location from the Riddler Map, but cannot find it for the life of me... fucking hell... gonna start on the challenges tonight

I haven't played it myself but I bought it for my kids and watched them play it and I am impressed. The cutscenes are really good and gameplay looks genuinly fun and not for only 15 minutes like every other superhero game I've played. It seems to have a really good pace to it and doesn't leave you simply swinging around aimlessly out of boredom like Spiderman.

What a great, great game. I'm playing the downloadable content now, and I just can't get enough of ARKHAM ASYLUM.

Granted, I'm not much of a video-game buff -- I'll often go months and months, sometimes even up to a year -- without turning on my son's PS3, but then every once in a blue moon I'll become obsessed with a certain title, like this one.

Of course, I am a huge Batman nerd. I'm sure that's got a lot to do with it my thinking this one's the BEST. GAME. EVER. Smile

A tremendous game. I was bought the Game Of The Year edition last week and I can't recommend it highly enough. Outstanding graphics, great sound, and just dripping in atmosphere.

They've really captured what it is to be Batman with this game and the overall feel of the comic is peefectly realised. The voice acting is spot on, too; Mark Hammil is the definitive Joker (so much better than that half-arsed attempt by Heath Ledger - I must be the only person on the planet not to rate his performance).
