In order for Batman to work alone, the Joker threatens to blow up Gotham city with a hidden bomb.
When trying to help Gordon, Batman is exposed to a Scarecrow-made poison which makes him hallucinate seeing Gordon dead and also the corpses of his parents talking to Batman. After defeating the Scarecrow, Batman must also defeat Harley Quinn before helping Gordon. That’s the outline of the story of the first Batman Arkham series.

Because when you paralyze an enemy, you can walk around and look around in the style of a stealth game, this game features a detective mode. In this feature it allows you to see the enemy through a vision that can penetrate walls. In addition, the advantage of this game is the graphics.
