You've heard of Batman no doubt, but if you don't read comics, it's conceivable that you might be unfamiliar with Arkham Asylum. The iconic psychiatric hospital is essentially Gotham City's Alcatraz, and it has housed just about every villain Batman...

Ladies and gentlemen, if I may now draw your attention to the center ring, it is now time for something that everyone has been waiting for. Well, okay, maybe not everyone, but definitely Dark Knight fans: A Batman game that is actually good. No,...

I’ll be frank: Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of the most enjoyable and most compelling games that I’ve played in a long time. It’s like a good book; once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down until you've read it all the way through.

A post-mortem look at Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Asylum.

The game is split into a number of divisions. Firstly, you have the navigation and Detective Mode in which Batman will go in search of clues to find his next objective. You have the ability to sprint and glide between locations, which can also be...

Weak Points: Story mode is linear with no decision points.

It will definitely put a smile on that face

This is the first game that truly grants players an opportunity to be Batman, whether he's using his intellect or his fists. Anyone with even a modicum of interest in playing an awesome Batman game should pick up Arkham Asylum, without any hesitation.

The Good: Just about everything The Bad: Combat for the most part is a little too easy The Ugly: Absolutely nuthin' I should begin by saying that I'm a huge fan of action/fighting games. Perhaps huge doesn't even describe it. Mammoth. Colossal. Not so...

This is very nearly the perfect game. I'm leaving myself some ceiling in the game review rating, but that's just a formality. This game is as close to 100% as I've ever seen. If you've ever wanted to play Batman, were more than a little disappointed by...

Finally, a comic book game based on Batman that's truly a fun and fantastic adventure has arrived on the scene. Rocksteady Studios was just known for Urban Chaos prior to Batman: Arkham Asylum but after this game they're going to be a pretty big name....

For Batman fans, this game is a long time coming. Taking the Unreal engine, Rocksteady has gone and made a truly fun superhero game and it looks incredible on the PC. If you have the NVIDIA hardware to play with, it looks even better and includes...

The Dark Knight's finest hour.

The best Batman (or, really, any comic-inspired) videogame ever made

In stark contrast to the rest of the game, the boss fights aren't very imaginative

The Dark Knight gets PhysXal.

As Batman: Arkham Asylum has already been carving huge Joker smiles on every console gamers’ face, you’ll be well aware that Rocksteady's sublime foray into the realm of the iconic comic book hero is an unmitigated success. But as a PC gamer, you might...

Touching down on PC, Bats makes the granddaddy of superhero entrances

Authentic Batman feel ; Loads to see and do ; Great acting and atmosphere

Combat sometimes frustrates ; Repetition of some areas ; Weak boss battles

Despite these niggles, it is safe to say this is almost certainly the best superhero game ever released.
