Batman Arkham Asylum Batman Arkham Asylum 

 

This review is one of the most anticipated reviews. There have been many emails chiming in on the preview I did. Thank you one and all for your input. Batman Arkham Asylum is technologically, and presentation wise one of the most amazing pieces of works I have ever played. However Family Friendly Gaming does not stop our reviews on those things. We apply what God says, and discern the good from the evil. It would be irresponsible of me as a Christian reviewer to ignore the many issues in Batman Arkham Asylum. I also refuse to go along with what the world tells me to say and think.

The visuals in Batman Arkham Asylum are dark on so many levels. The tone, areas, and even characters are disturbing. Batman Arkham Asylum is the kind of a game that can produce nightmares. Who is mentally unhinged enough to encourage that? Female characters are dressed in slutty attire in many cases. Death and violence are oozing out of this game like puss from a putrid wound. This game is in essence the darkest versions of the comics, having the player become a vigilante.

The opening scene of Batman Arkham Asylum is the most interesting to me. The Joker provides all kinds of comic relief. I searched my heart and have to be honest - much of it is not appropriate. I am ashamed to say I did laugh at some of it, and have since repented for that sin. Batman Arkham Asylum contains bad language which drags this game down. The various comic book characters act at their most extreme. After some time I got tired of the lack of moderation.

It is mind boggling how many different quests, hidden items, upgrades, and challenges there are in Batman Arkham Asylum. This home console game did not costs me much money. So in terms of extras (and extras only) there is a fair amount for the price. My concern is with some of the extra content. It fits into the theme of the rest of the game -which I believe draw people away from God not towards.

There are some neat things in terms of the controls of Batman Arkham Asylum. Players do not always need to use violence to progress. I found some spots where I could avoid bad guys. There are others where violence is required to progress. Batman Arkham Asylum slows down some bone crunching hits to glorify them. I felt horrible for all the damage my ‘Batman’ did to these legions of criminals.

Batman is in essence a good guy, but he uses many bad means to achieve that. I am deeply bothered by Batman Arkham Asylum in my spirit. What bothers me more is so many call this a good game. Is bashing people’s faces in a good thing to do? How does mentally absorbing all this evil and violence draw you closer to God?
