That's because there aren't any. Or rather there weren't any until Batman: Arkham Asylum came along. After an extensive hands-on, exploring the majority of the enormous Arkham Island – we've come to the conclusion that not only is this Batman's best game to date, but quite possibly the best superhero game ever made. A bold claim, but one we think you'll agree with the moment you take your first tentative steps into the foreboding darkness of Gotham's legendary loony bin."
