Default Re: Rank the Arkham video games?

In terms of the art/writing:

1. Origins
2. City
3. Asylum

In terms of gameplay

1. City
2. Asylum
3. Origins

Notes:

In terms of the map, I love Origins because of the abundance of activities and criminal presence. I do not want civilians in a Batman game, but was pleased with the alternating amounts of police officers and criminals. City, while it had the best gameplay, had an empty map. A few pockets of crooks...and that was it. Sure, the level of the decorations and textures on the buildings is unrivaled, it just felt empty. I'd go minutes without encountering thugs, whereas with Origins, I can hardly go two buildings without being shot at.
