Default Batman:Arkham Asylum

Has anyone had a go with this game?

I'm a strong pc gamer supporter and am looking for another thrill ride. Seen it on Amazon.ca for $49.99. Strangely enough...googling brought up many torrent versions of the game and then people wonder why PC games struggle. Buy the game

I got a free d/l copy with my bfg video card. Haven't got it yet, though I'm hoping to play this weekend. I'll let you know what it's like if no one else responds by then!

The PC version is not until the 15th. The console versions are getting great reviews and the demo was awesome. A definite play.

Waiting for sept 15th. Gonna be a good game, i know it. Just too bad lip syncing isn't good enough to make us enjoy optimally the good voice acting.

I've got it for PS3 and love it! The combat isn't particularly difficult, but IS entertaining, and the puzzle solving, while not viciously difficult, is very Batman. I'm impressed, overall.

Well, I have the PS3...hate the thing but the other family members like it. I only play PC games. I wonder why there was a delay between the console and PC release?

That's too bad that Physx is not supported on my 4870x2.
