I'm Batman?

I didn't think I was ready for another adventure. I didn't think it was from a character and a universe I cared little for.

Everyone heard it. You have to play Batman: Arkham Asylum. It's actually good and sticks close to the old ways of The Bat. But I was skeptical. Fanboys will be fanboys. Of course you are going to like it, it has Batman in it. They could put him in a polkda dot dress and you would call it "Immersive and engaging".

I had enough people recommend it to me that a little under a week ago I gave it a try. Now I'M BATMAN. That is truly what it feels like. Stalking to shadows, being capable of installing fear into the hearts of goons. Putting your detective skills to work. Having a grizzly voice. As preciously mentioned, I'm not a bat fan. I never read the comics, sure I enjoyed the latest film (who didn't). But the game either gives you a great education into the history of the comic series, or it may well back up what you love so much about the caped crusader.

I didn't expect so much to do as well. Collectibles, challenges, riddles. An OCD gamer would have a ball. I'm happy to just trip through the game and gaze on what it's offering.

I am so pleased to have played so many single player games this year, because I have really found such reward in completing some of the best experiences around, of late. Batman is one of them. 

Is this the video game police?! There's a fire going on in my lounge room!
