It’s interesting to think about how different the expectations for a Batman game have changed astronomically. When Rocksteady released Arkham Asylum in 2009, the game was almost cast away due to the absurd thought that there might be a good Batman game. But then, everyone played it. And man, was it brilliant. Here we are two years later and fans of the Dark Knight are waiting in anticipation which has been highly regarded already as a game of the year contender. Just like how Arkham City is a larger version of Arkham Asylum, this is also an accurate view from a gaming perspective as well, with the game featuring a more interesting and varied story, the same awesome melee combat, and offering some great looking environments that seem to change up extremely often. It not only sets the bar for superhero games, but also the action adventure genre as well.
