Batman: Arkham Asylum gameplay can be divided into three types: world exploration, beating, and stealth. In the first case, the hero moves through the territory of the hospital, solving the puzzles encountered and heading to the desired place with the help of his gadgets. In the event of an open confrontation with patients, the game switches to beat 'em up mode, when the hero must neutralize them by means of hand-to-hand combat with one or a group of opponents. There are several types of opponents who participate in hand-to-hand combat with them. At the beginning of the game, the hero meets an unarmed enemy, later the thugs begin to use pipe cuttings, a certain type of enemy uses knives and blocks Batman's normal attacks, another type is armed with shock and the hero takes damage when trying to direct a blow, the last type of enemy is a bandit who was hit "Titan", it has the most powerful attacks that cannot be counterattacked. In addition, thugs can use environmental elements in battle: throw boxes at the hero, collect weapons left behind by other criminals, and collect machine guns from weapon cabinets. Most of these attacks cannot be blocked, and if the hero's attack is successful, Batman only disarms his opponents, giving the enemy the opportunity to reuse the weapon. The hero himself does not use a weapon that scares away thugs, but only throws it aside. As you progress through the story, the beat 'em up component of the game becomes more and more complex as different types of opponents require different approaches (needing to use a camouflage blow on opponents with knives, attack from behind with shokers, etc.)

Batman brings the captured Joker to Arkham Mental Hospital. Batman doesn't like the Joker giving up too easily, so he decides to accompany the psychopath to the hospital. Soon the Joker manages to escape from the hands of the guards and, having freed all the captives, captures the entire Arkham Island with their help. The Joker forbids the police and superheroes from interfering in his affairs as he blew up all of Gotham, so only a handful of guards, led by James Gordon, Aaron Cash, and the Oracle (Barbara Gordon), help. Batman.

While investigating the Joker's plans, Batman learns that a certain Dr. Young has created a new mutagen based on Bane's Venom - Titan, which makes an ordinary person incredibly strong, like Bane. This project was secretly funded by the Joker himself, who wants to create an invincible army of monsters. Batman enters Poison Ivy's lair and asks her to find a cure. She says that Croc has it. Batman enters Croc's lair and finds a cure, while the Joker turns his minions into monsters.

Batman manages to find and destroy the formula; Defeat the Scarecrow, who wanted to poison the sewers of Gotham with a new hallucinogen; Defeat Poison Ivy, who was under the influence of the Titan, Harley Quinn, Bane and Croc; solve a large number of Riddler's puzzles and riddles; create an antidote against Titan; find the chronicles of the ghost of Amadeus Arkham and stop the captives of the rebels. In the finale, the Joker is transformed by the Titan into a giant monster, but Batman manages to defeat him. Shortly thereafter, the arriving police take control of the situation in Arkham, and Batman, hearing on the radio that Two-Face is robbing the Second National Bank of Gotham, flies towards the city.

In the post-credits scene, the only remaining Titan container is taken by one of three opponents: Killer Croc, Bane, or the Scarecrow.
