The Batman: Arkham Asylum Trailer Tries to Not Be Awesome, But Is Awesome Anyways

The Batman: Arkham Asylum trailer certainly isn’t making it easy on itself. There’s not a single shot of Batman in it. Nor are any of his villains pictured. There are no action scenes, nor really is there any gameplay featured. In fact, it’s pretty much just a tour of Arkham, with its dingy cells, dingy padded rooms and dingy electroshock treatment areas. And I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look awesome as hell–I can’t wait to spend $60 on this game.

Now compare this to Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe, which tried its damnedest to look just slightly cool, and ended up looking “goofy as shit.” You don’t have to be the World’s Greatest Detective to know that a lot of MK Vs DC copies are going to end up in the Used Games Bin just before Arkham Asylum comes out.
