Who knew Batman could be transformed into a third-person stealth Bioshock.
When I first heard about Batman: Arkham Asylum, I thought it was too good to be true. I figured it would end up being nothing more than a typical disappointing licensed game. Then the pieces started coming together: Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill of Batman: The Animated Series fame were set to voice Batman and the Joker respectively, the combat seemed to capture the Dark Knight's signature style, and the story was being penned by prolific comic writer Paul Dini. At the end of it all, Arkham Asylum turned out to be one of the best licensed games I've ever played, and one of the finest games of its kind.
