Batman Arkham Asylum News


We’ve got some news for all you Arkham Asylum fans.  I’ve played the game a lot and on my first pass have completed the single player mode and about 70% of the Riddler challenges.  I haven’t played a lot of the challenges yet, but I’ve played around with them a bit and had fun.

I did get the chance to play as the Joker on my friend’s PS3 and I have to say it was pretty fun.  Joker’s moves are quick and quirky.  Most of his takedowns and throws are hilarious too.  But now, onto the news.

Batman Arkham Asylum has been awarded a Guinness World Record for “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever.”  The press release states:

Batman: Arkham Asylum has been given top scores across the board from National newspapers and specialist game reviewers. The game has broken the Guinness World Record in this category by achieving the highest average score of 91.67 from reviews around the world.

Congrats to Arkham Asylum on that honor, however this is what I think is the bigger news.  Eidos is planning two free downloadable content packs for Arkham Asylum in the next couple weeks.  Yes, you read that right, its free.  next week’s free DLC will be entitled “Insane Night.” “Prey in the Darkness” will follow one week later, on September 24th.  So stay tuned, this is going to be good.
