Batman: Arkham Asylum Impressions/Review

I. Love. This. Game.

So, I'm only about halfway through the game right now, but I could have told you at the 20% mark why I love this game.

Also, I realize I'm a bit late to this party, but three things justify my thoughts on this game:

1. It's Halloween, and who's scarier than Batman?
2. Arkham City just came out on the consoles, and it comes out on PC in a couple weeks, so I thought it'd be good to reflect a bit on this game.
3. I freaking love this game!


So, why is this such a great game?

Wow. Where do I begin?
