The game is finally released in Australia this Friday and the reviews are in...
Eurogamer: "it's the best superhero game, bar none."
1UP: "many of the mechanics turn Batman: Arkham Asylum into a bona fide "Batman Simulator,""
IGN: "The greatest comic book videogame of all time. "
Strategy Informer: "Truly this is the Batman game that everybody’s been waiting for."
Games Master UK: "Simply put, Batman: Arkham Asylum is a masterpiece."
So I guess that seals it. Unless you're as batshit crazy as the Joker, you'll no doubt be joining me in picking up the game this Friday.
"Well done, Jim. We're officially awesome."
