Batman: Arkham Asylum best game of the year?
The first reviews of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum have become available last week. From what can be seen up to now the critiques were positively surprised.
Although the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum won't be released until September 18, 2009, the game has already hit the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Reviewers in the Internet are already abuzz as the game scores higher and higher. At Metacritics, a website that summarizes review scores of games, Batman: Arkham Asylum has reached 92 percent. The calculation also contains some 100 percent reviews of well known websites like Gamespy. IGN gave 93 percent and Gamespot gave 90. The graphics comparison between Xbox 360 and PS3 is quite interesting, too.
Why are those console scores relevant for PC Games Hardware? Well, the PC version might reach even higher results due to better graphics and physics. So if you haven't tried the Batman: Arkham Asylum Demo yet, you might want to check it out right now.
