Batman: Arkham Asylum

Oh what a Knight

Arkham Asylum is not your typical licensed game. For one, it's bloody brilliant.

Shame it's a trifle short, but it does indeed sound awesome. Consider me sold!

What's with all the Gears references? Are there Locust in Arkham? Batman sure is the size of a Gear mind...

With this and Splinter Cell on the way, I'm going to be a happy chappy as far as stealth games go!

The demo was brilliant, and it sounds like the rest of the game is just as good.

I can't wait to get my hands on it.

7 hours? Where did I get 20 from :? ?

A little dissapointed it is so short but as others have said the Demo was brilliant and it will be a Day 1 pick up for me too.

Yeah, I remember reading in a few previews that the game is around 20 hours long. Oh well, as long as there is replayability it's all good.

On another note, I can't wait to get this, it's been a while since I've played a stealth game, or anything like Metroid or Zelda. Bring it on! :D

It took the IGN review 9 hours to beat the main game and around 12 to get everything in it. The time its takes to beat the game just depends on the person.

And wtf at no multiplayer complaint. I'm glad they didnt bother.

So what's wrong with the 360 version?
