Today is the day we nerds have been waiting for. We finally get our hands on a good Batman video game. Now the Lego Batman wasn’t that bad but it doesn’t truly show what Batman is all about, and that is going to change with the release of Arkham Asylum today. Batman:AA is available for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, which will have the exclusive Joker levels.
Not since Batman: The Animated series for the SNES has a Batman game received such critical success. IGN gave the game a 9.3/10 (review here, Gameinformer in their latest issue gave it a 9.5/10 and currently the game is holding a steady 91/100 at metacritic. I really can’t wait to get my hands on this game and play the shit out of it….yes the literal shit.
