pretty much blown away

this is so much like the batman dreams I had as a kid, it's scary. I could not imagine how a video game could give much more depth, definitely the best game I've ever played. I have played this (with a wireless Xbox 360 Controller) for a couple months and have enjoyed watching myself learn how to fight and eventually begin to win the predator and combat challenges and it's been a very rewarding experience. From getting kicked around in the beginning to scoring upwards of 20K+ per round in some of the challenges has been quite vindicating, but figuring out all the stealth challenges is really the coolest part of the game to me. The story is awesome, the graphics are amazing and the performance on my 2011 MBP is noticeably tighter than it feels on my friend's console… For me, lots of replay value too. Amazing job, Feral! The only possible way to go any further up from here would be… to do Batman Arkham City…right? Please? Awesome game, thanks ~ta~

Looks better than Arkham City does on Boot Camp

I concur with the reviews, that this is an outstanding 'port'.

I've had to go through the trouble of installing Boot Camp, just so that I could waste some of my precious time on Arkham City, the sequel to Arkham Asylum. To be able to display the full range of its visual gimmicks, that game requires DirectX 11, as well as the nVidia 'physx' accelerator. Both can be turned on, on an early 2011' 15" MBP, with the 6750M (1GB) GPU (I guess the CPU takes on the task of doing the 'physx' number-crunching in that case); however activating either of them leads to frequent crashes. It also slows down considerably, at the native resolution (1680x1050). Arkham City still looks gorgeous without all these; but it does lack some of the luster that it would have on 'maxed out' settings.

This port of Arkham Asylum is very impressive, in that it runs perfectly smoothly at the native resolution, *and* features some of that DirectX 11/'physx' polish.


First of all, I must say I ove this game. It's a fantastic game, and I was really glad to see it on the mac appstore. That being said, this game first released in August of 2009. If my xbox had not recently broken, I could have played this game on it for $10. A gamestop near me sells this game for 25% of what I payed for on the appstore. If this game had been any less amazing than it was I might have given it 4 stars. But because of the hours of enjoyment it gave me, I am not regretful. I am however looking forward to buying another xbox and with it a game of the year edition of Arkham City. Overall this game has great graphics, amazing gameplay, great audio, and pretty good voice acting. The twists in the plot made it near impossible to guess what was coming around the corner. Arkham Asylum also pushed Batman to one of my favorite heroes. An excellent game with a not so excellent price tag.
