Characters and plot was terrific. One thing was a bit strange that although you had lot of gadgets then actually you didn't need much of them.

Fantastic gameplay..Feels like living and breathing batman as portrayed in comics. Generates nostalgia for good old batman cartoons.

Positive points
Gameplay mechanics feels smooth. Fighting elements are as amazing as they were in comics and animated series. Variety of approach due to tools at disposal of batman makes it more amazing.
Negative points
The whole game is quite long while it was taking place in one night. Makes it more of a extension and may generate boredom and creepiness due to dark and horrific nature at times.

Storyline

The Joker, Batman's arch enemy, has instigated an elaborate plot from within Arkham Asylum, where many of Batman's other foes have been incarcerated. Batman investigates and comes to learn that the Joker is trying to create an army of Bane-like creatures to threaten Gotham City, and is forced to put a stop to the Joker's plans. Throughout the night, Batman is forced to deal with the temporarily admitted sane prisoners from Blackgate prison, Scarecrow, Zsasz, Poison Ivy, Bane, Killer Croc and Harley Quinn. By the night's end, all the villains, save Bane, Croc and Crane, are recaptured and placed back in their cells and what remains of the staff try putting the Asylum back in order. Though it is thanks to Batman that the criminally insane are brought back under control, administrator of Arkham, mayoral candidate Quincy Sharp, soon takes advantage and claims the credit himself for bringing the Arkham institution back under control.
