Xbox Evoled writes: "After years and years of misfires, disappointments, and outright misery, developer Rocksteady and publisher Eidos have struck gold with Batman: Arkham Asylum, the first great superhero game we've ever had. The superhero genre has not fared well in the video game industry. Superman 64 is considered by some to be the worst game of the 1990's. Other games, going from DC to Marvel to Dark Horse universes, have had a wide range of success, with much of it ranging near the putrid category. Exceptions like Marvel Ultimate Alliance come along every now and then, but none have come close to the mark that Arkham Asylum has achieved."
