A Batman game that doesn't suck? That what its starting to look like
The general premise is that Bats has hauled Joker off to the Asylum, playing right into his game, delivering him to the Asylum where he breaks loose and assumes control of the island, trapping you in it with the crazies. Your main objectives seem to be to take him down and escape, no easy task considering your totally outnumbered by insane, gun toting, pipe wielding convicts, many of which you helped put away.
The game seems a seamless blend of stealth and combat, something that a lot of very mediocre games have toted in the past, but to see all this in action (in the video walkthrough and the few trailers) totally dismissed any fears I had of this being a Streets of LA style mash up of gameplay styles.
The fighting looks absolutely brutal and theres a surprising amount of depth and tactics in the more subtle approaches. The physics engine looks killer too. Tossing a dude at a wall, or using the grappling hook to yank him off a railing... <3
