Unlike their movie counterparts, comic-based games rarely hit their mark. There are exceptions like Spider-Man 2, the X-men arcade game, and The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, but most games have never truly hit their stride. This summer, arguably the best movie ever to be based on a comic book saw the light with the release of The Dark Knight, an epic movie that made an obscenely high amount of money.
No Batman game ever met with the same success. In fact, Hooked Gamers doesn't know of a single Batman game that was worth playing. However, Rocksteady Studios, known for their work on Urban Chaos, and Eidos Interactive plan to change that trend with the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
