If you adore the slightly melancholic, but richly imaginative, works of creators like Tim Burton, Neil Gaimon, or Jean-Prerre Jeunet, then Folklore id for you. The story begins in the decrepit village of Doolin, the gateway to the afterworld. Two strangers are beckoned to the island – one an orphan lured by a letter from her long dead mother and the other a jaded reporter for an occultist magazine who receives a mysterious phone call. They arrive in time to witness a murder. Solving it requires journeying into the Netherworld to interrogate the dead and facing truths that hit closer to home and have bigger impacts than they could ever suspect.
Developers of Batman games often forget that, above all, the Caped Crusader is a detective. To reflect this, Arkham will see you investigating the asylum and using forensics tools to track down the Joker. Think Condemned 2. You’ll be able to use batarangs in combat (controlled from the first person) and access a mini batcave filled with high-tech goodies.
