Welcome to Arkham Asylum, the first title in the Arkham series, released back in 2009, published and developed by Rocksteady Studios. Arkham Asylum has now been remastered on the PS4, so if you never played this before, you can now play it on the PS4. You, Bruce Wayne - aka Batman - have to take down the villains in Arkham Asylum while catching the Joker to return him back to where he belongs, behind bars, after escaping from the Penitentiary in the first place.
The trophy list for Arkham Asylum is mostly story driven; the only difficulty you will be struggling with are the combat and predator challenges. As ever with an open-world map, there are collectibles and there are a lot of them. In total, there are 240 riddles to collect, which involve riddle trophies, riddles, Joker teeth, Chronicles of Arkham and Interview Tapes. There are also two missable trophies in this game, but with the guide, you shouldn't have any problems.
Note: This is an autosave game only. It saves every time you enter/exit a new area, so keep this in mind when collecting the collectibles as these will not save once picked up. If you log out of your PS3/4 without entering a new area, then you will have to pick those collectibles up again.
Step 1: Play through the game on the hardest difficulty.
Personally, I would recommend you play on hard from the off. The only real differences are the enemies are a tad harder to defeat plus there are no counter attack icons. It will get easier as you get more gadgets, but I would recommend stealth wherever possible. If in combat, always use the attack evade maneuver ( double tap ). Also, don't forget about the two missable trophies, otherwise you'll have to start a NG+.
Step 2: Collectibles.
You can try to smash/scan/pick any up you see along the way to make life easier, but it's recommended that you do this after you've beaten the story as you have free-roam plus most if not all the weapon upgrades available to you (depending on what you upgrade throughout the story).
In total there are 240 riddles. These break down into the following:
- Riddler Trophies
- Joker Teeth
- Chronicles of Arkham
- Patient Interviews
Step 3 Free-roam clean-up.
Use this step to clean any remaining trophies you may have left.
Step 4 Combat and Predator challenges.
Before you start these challenge rooms, make sure you have all the riddles, upgrades and combat upgrades unlocked from free-play, as collecting the riddles is what unlocks the challenge rooms.
This is where you will be spending most of your time. The combat challenges shouldn't prove too difficult; just use the attack and evade maneuver while mixing in quickfire gadgets to keep your combo going. Shock and Awe Extreme will be the one that will cause you the most stress.
In total, there are 3 medals to collect per Combat and Predator room, for a grand total of 68 medals.
