Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of my favorite games from recent memory (as you can see from this glowing review.) it had everything a video game should have. Balanced and timely progression through the character and level. A Story that you can get into and has a griping arc to it. Voice acting that draws you in and doesn’t distract you from the game, great graphics, controls, sound….and of course, the god damn Batman! Needless to say I was MORE than excited when the sequel was announced!
