Super – Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)
Rocksteady has managed to create a very simple and specific mindset in those who play the frankly incredible Arkham titles. It can be described in three words – I. Am. Batman. Yes. You. Are. With combat so satisfying it’s like taking down the goons yourself without the sore knuckles, and stealth take-downs so super sneaky that you are mainlining the Worlds Greatest Detective. Arkham Asylum is the superhero game to rule them all. Rollicking performances, a slew of the Caped Crusader’s villainous adversaries and enough Bat-tech to fill that Gadget Show competition twice over meant that we pinned a shiny PlayStation Gold Award to it’s lapel and and gave them a very manly slap on the back.
