batmanaaThe demo for Eidos’ ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ is out this week and it’s well worth giving a try. I’ve played through it twice and it’s a lot of fun. The demo shows Batman returning the Joker back to Arkham, only to find out it’s an elaborate trap set by the Clown Prince of Crime. Now the Dark Knight must battle his way through a gauntlet of thugs, psychopaths and his greatest foes to retake the most pourous prison in comics. It’s available for free on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or PC, so you’ve got no excuse not to give it a try.

As short as it is, they show off a lot of the game’s and Batman’s best features including the fighting system (free-flow combat), Batman’s smarts (Detective mode) and his wonderful toys (batarangs and his omnipresent grapple gun). The game has looked good since it was announced (and I’ve been sold since they showed Harley Quinn), but it’s nice to see it plays as great as it looks.

‘Arkham Asylum’ will be hitting stores on August 25th for console gamers and September 15 for PC players. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think Joker’s goons need another lesson in justice, Gotham-style.
