Too often developed simply to capitalise on a recent film or TV adaptation, it is rare to find a game that pays proper tribute to the heroes on which it is based. Rocksteady's 2009 release Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of those rare success stories.

With expanded abilities at Batman's disposal - and a new playable character in Catwoman - can lightning strike twice for Dark Knight?"
