FIRST 10 MINUTES | X360, PS3, PC Friday, August 28, 2009 | 10:30 AM

The first 10 minutes:
Batman Arkham Asylum

The first 10 minutes: <br>Batman Arkham Asylum

First announced for a June release, Batman: Arkham Asylum managed to tease us until the end of August, which is hopefully for the best for such a great game. The game will only be released in a few hours here in Europe so here are the usual first 10 minutes of the game. There will be three videos, the first one only showing the complete introduction with the Joker's "delivery" at Arkham. It will soon be followed by two gameplay videos of the beginning of the game, focusing on the sequences that did not appear in the demo. You will get a chance to see some platforming sequences as well as witness Batman's talent for crime scene investigation.
Update 2: Third and final part is up.

The second part is up but please don't use server DE 1 if you want to download the file. It will not work before at least an hour and there is nothing I can do to speed things up.

I have to say, I have had a blast playing every minute of the game so far. The voices, the story, the fighting animations, the atmosphere, the universe of batman, all of it... everything is done so much care and polish.

Hands down the best "hero" game I have ever played. Puts other games like infamous, protype, spiderman, etc... all to shame.

This is what a superhero game is all about. GOTY so far IMO.

I bought the game but haven't had a chance to play it yet due to college. However, Mark Hamill is truly a kickass Joker.

I finished the game a couple days ago and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Game of the year so far. And the challenge rooms are a lot of fun too, not to mention solving every Riddler´s puzzle which took me a few hours after beating the main story and it was just as fun.

Extremely good game!
Sure worth the extra wait.

Easy there tiger, no game beats the pure sense of adrenaline from Prototype. That game was my literal dream come true of running like a ninja through urban cities. It's not as good overall as Arkham Asylum, of course.

Maybe you should have used the money from the 9 extra ninja gaiden black copies to get yourself checked :)

Thanks for the vid but I am not going to spoil it as I just picked this up for the weekend...I expect the greatness that Batman has deserved for years when you think about it he really is the perfect videogame masked hero.

Man, I have been waiting for this game since the first screenshots. From there on, my expectations kept going up. I have pre-ordered the PC-version (my GTX295 needs some work because there are very few PC-titles coming out this year), ofcourse the limited edition. Now I have to wait until september 18. But I just want this game so badly that I'm thinking of buying the console version also so I can play it now!!!!!!! I just hope my expectations aren't too high, but how can they not?? It's Batman in it's purest form!!! If I had to choose between Batman or any other game this year, I would choose Batman with my eyes closed in a second.

Lol, I'm pretty sure even the Devil (capital D?) would like this game...so much praise it's been getting.

After having played the demo (on PS3) and seeing the 2 x first 10 minutes gameplay I have decided not to buy this game. It looks nice, it looks Batman.. but I miss something (although I cannot define what).

To be clear, the Devil would like the game because it's good, NOT because it's receiving praise.

It's not the game's fault you have no taste.
