Rebecca Mayes Live review Wed, 27 Jul 2011

With the videogame review train chugging away, the Batman song was a moment of pure enjoyment in the middle of all sweat and toil.

There were lots of songs between Madworld and Batman, and every last one of them almost killed me. I was often left at a loss as to what I should do. Ghostbusters, Bionic Commando, Wolverine, Worms, Overlord 2 and Velvet Assassin.

Dressup Gamer review Tue, 24 Aug 2010

Batman: Arkham Asylum PS3 is a brilliantly realised action adventure providing an experience as close to being a super hero as you can get without pulling on some tights. Although not previously a fan, Arkham delivers such a convincing a portrayal of Batman's super-vigilante role that I was soon won over.

When Eidos boss Ian Livingstone proclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum would be the game of the year last summer he got quite a few tongues wagging. Developer, Rocksteady were virtually unknown and the last good Batman game was arguably on the Commodore 64. On release, Ian's claims were validated by the media, but he still had to convince me as a lifelong hater of the caped crusader and his rich boy antics. Whatever my feelings, I embraced the chance to experience wearing the Kevlar armour of one the most iconic characters of the twentieth century.

Perpetual Gamer review Sun, 18 Oct 2009

The geek in me gets to finally revel in the wonder and awe that is Batman: Arkham Asylum on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, I found myself thrilled to finally be able to control my comic hero in quite simply the best game I've played in a long time.

I've waited years for this day. A day when I can finally get up and proclaim that I am a Batman fan and finally a game has come out that has done the character justice! For me this is the pinnacle of perpetual gaming, a character that I can immerse myself in.

Soulful Gamer review Sun, 27 Sep 2009

Happily taking hits from my dislike for superheroes and stealth, Batman: Arkham Asylum completely re-wrote my perceptions and gave me an astounding videogame experience that left me fascinated and enthralled. With its atmosphere and lively characterisation dripping off the walls I found myself being put through a range of emotions - from being thrilled and empowered by the combat, to being scared and nervous at the unpredictable characters in Arkham Asylum.

Superheroes have never really done it for me. Call it close-minded cynicism but I've never managed to get past any story that involves a character wearing a costume and talking in an overly gruff voice. I know that comic books serve a greater purpose than just telling a visually entertaining story or enabling the reader to escape into an alternative world. I know that they can serve as thoughtful allegories to the state of the world or social injustice but I've never been pulled towards them. Until now.
