    If not for some graphical and framerate issues, Batman: Return to Arkham would be one of the best remasters out there.

    Batman: Return to Arkham includes the first two episodes of the franchise, of course with all the DLC and content released so far. The graphical improvements are impressive, with new models and animations.

    Return to Arkham contains two fantastic games, with a visual upgrade. Both games are still fantastic, but Asylum has lost some of it's charm. Also both games suffer from occasional framedrops, but nothing drastic. So this is definitely worth your money!

    This was the 4th time I’ve played Arkham Asylum and it still holds up. I’m not crazy about the $50 price point for two last gen games with no new features, but that’s a slight nitpick.

    Two excellent games, but sadly not so well remastered. The character models and their suits look very well, unfortunately the rest of the game looks fewer dark than the original release and we don't have any improvements on the framerate. If you never played the Arkham series before maybe you should look at this collection, the rest of us not.

    Two classic games made to look notably worse than they did over five years ago, which is one villainous masterplan even Batman can’t foil.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are amazing games, but this collection doesn't stand up to the same quality. The visuals have been improved, but at a loss of the dark ambiance of the originals. The 30 fps frame rate isn't locked, with the occasional stutter marring the experience. Worse, there's no new content available here. If you own either game on PC, there's no reason to get Return to Arkham.

    Better stories than the films, great combat and plenty of side quests. I am a massive batman fan and these games kept me occupied over lockdown.

However, this port brings this down, the constant frame drops become extremely annoying, even more so when they happen in battle. Because i'm such a massive fan of these games (Arkham City is actually my favorite game ever), I still had one of my greatest experiences playing a game since Halo 3 was released. Expand

The textures do look sharper, but the improved lighting brings out some of the flaws in the graphics that the darker 7th gen versions masked. Also the frame rate is only 30fps but sometimes stutters below even that. This still a good buy for those who don't already own these two incredible games. Expand

    I just now beat Arkham Asylum, which has been my first time playing any of the Batman Arkham games, and I enjoyed most of it very much, andI just now beat Arkham Asylum, which has been my first time playing any of the Batman Arkham games, and I enjoyed most of it very much, and can see why it was all the rage back in 2009, even though piece of it haven't aged as well. Many of the boss fights are kind of lame and tedious, especially the Poison Ivy fight and the two final fights, but lame sequences like that are balanced out by the incredible Scarecrow sequences, which I only wish there were more of, and that they had gotten even more twisted and creepy. Can't wait to check out Arkham City now. Expand

    These are the worst game i've ever played now the bar is low considering I use reviews to judge most of my purchases but these games areThese are the worst game i've ever played now the bar is low considering I use reviews to judge most of my purchases but these games are BEYOND overhyped. I purchased this game after I was done finishing the excellent Spider-Man PS4 and desperately chasing anything similar and in my research I have found that it runs in comparisons the most with this game, WHICH IS AN INSULT. Arkhams combat is boring as long as you mash triangle you can beat this game no problem. This game should be called Batman Triangle there are no punishments for mashing triangle. You will never miss your counters and it will always do damage. Now what is the story in all of these games. Put simply lazy, Batman only seems to not even acknowledge in all of these games what is happening around him with zero emotion. I was desperatly waiting to play as ANY OTHER CHARACTER cause then I would actually have the slightest amount of emotion. If there is any good thing about these games it is the art stlye but thats it. I fell asleep 4 times while attempting to play arkham asylum and i really bullied myself to finish it after spending $30 dollars on a collection that I tried to lie to playstation too to get some kind of money back. I feel like I should have been paid to finish any of these. This game really makes you feel like an idiot for paying money for this game Expand
