I recently borrowed this game from a friend, expecting an mediocre action experience despite the overwhelmingly positive critical response. Clearly, I was pleasantly surprised.

The single most impressive aspect of this game is the experience. The plot is not profound, and the climax bordered on generic, but running around the asylum crushing skulls will make you feel like the Dark Knight himself. 

There's really not that much else to say. One of my favorite moments was silently taking down a thug, luring the other three armed henchmen in with a batarang, and dispatching them one by one before finally taking down the last one, who at this point is practically soiling himself.
