Batman: Arkham Asylum – Full download PC/MAC
Batman: Arkham Asylum is a story about the new adventures of the Dark Knight title, which combines elements of adventure, walk-ons and stealth.
Batman: Arkham Asylum does not refer directly to feature films or comic books, though it draws on the inspirations. It is worth mentioning that Paul Dini, one of the authors of the Batman series The Animated Series, is responsible for the script. The action of the game starts shortly after Batman once again manages to capture Joker and bring the villain to the madhouse for the title. Shortly after arriving, the Joker escapes, and in addition, it turns out that the whole was part of his elaborate plan. By manipulating the Batman character we have to lead to the re-imprisonment of all fugitive criminals. The interesting fact is that during the game, in addition to Joker, we also meet many other characters characteristic of the universe in question. These include Victor Zsasz, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy
Most of the time we spend on visiting other locations and neutralizing prisoners, which is done in two main ways. The classic rolling mechanism assumes the need for fast pulses, which are then combined into more spectacular combinations of punches.
In addition, in some places it is possible or even necessary to act out of concealment. In this case, the key to success is the skillful surprise of the opponents, as well as the used elements of the environment (eg gargoyles). In intervals between elimination of enemies we solve puzzles and roll out simple investigations (following the traces of DNA, searching for specific odors, etc.).
As you progress, you gain experience points that are awarded for defeating enemies, performing tasks and finding secret items. Along with every upgrade to the next level we gain access to new types of attacks, better armor and unique gadgets. The latter play an important role. Batman uses inventory items to effectively eliminate enemies (the famous Batarang) and to overcome numerous obstacles (such as a rope or wall-blowing gel).
In addition to the main single player campaign, the producer also provided an additional Challenge Mode. We have access to two types of play, consisting in mass elimination of enemies or acting in hiding. In order to successfully pass these stages, we have to show a lot of reflexes and learn the skill of Batman well.
During the game we visit a variety of different locations, including hospital, prison block, botanical garden, extensive mansion and even Batman’s cave. The game offers quite a lot of freedom of action, and to the already visited spots we can return to the will. The main character’s struggles are seen from a third person perspective, although at some point the camera changes position. There were also very impressive interstitial films featuring Batman, Joker and other people in the area of the title station.
