I continued playing Rocksteady Studio’s Arkham Asylum, via the Return to Arkham Collection on the PlayStation 4. Arkham Asylum was originally released on the PlayStation 3 back in 2009. Here are some of my thoughts while playing the game (spoilers).
- Scarecrow: The confrontation with the Scarecrow in the morgue was pretty awesome. I liked how you slowly become under the influence of his fear gas and start seeing bugs on the walls, and then the morgue telling you to get out, and then finding your parents’ bodies in body bags. It all leads up to taking on a giant, creepy looking Scarecrow. Awesome.
- Bane: Bane’s appearance was pretty epic, especially getting to see him juice up on his venom. It took a bit of time to figure out how to take him down, but was fun once I got the hang of it. The henchmen getting thrown into the fight was pretty annoying though. Also, I’m pretty sure Batman killed Bane with his car, or at the very least caused him drown in Gotham Bay.
Early Impression: 9.0/10.0
