Batman Arkham Asylum... I'm playing it now!

Just finished the Scarecrow nightmare level this morning. It was FABULOUS!!!! but don' take my word for it, watch this footage-
(CAUTION: It may be a bit too morbid for readers of certain ages)

The sudden change from the "over the shoulder" 3rd person view to the "platformer" view was refreshing.. i don't care what others say, it was the most fun i've had in this game since the first time i made Batman leap off a ledge and perform a dive kick :) :yes:

Unfortunately, now i'm temporarily stuck in the fight with Bane.. granted i've only attempted it twice so far.. just had to take a break and blog it.. will get back to it in a bit.
UPDATE: didnt take long to beat him.. you just have to whack him with batarangs and dodge him when he comes at you.. whenever he hits his head and gets dizzy, you have to jump in and start hitting him. It triggers a animated sequence of Batman ripping out one of the venom tubes on his back.. you have to do this thrice.. and he goes down.

To get an idea of how formidable the guy is , take a look at the opening cinematic to this fight-


The rest of the game thus far has been stellar! i give it a solid 9/10 :up:

I can't help still wondering if theres going to be any overt connection to the graphic novel of the same name(Written by Grant Morrison; Art and cover by Dave McKean)..


i read it a couple of years back and its been one of my favourites.
