Like it or not, licensed games typically sell based on the name more than anything else. As a result, developers simply "go through the motions" when churning out a game with a license, and the creative juices are reserved for original IP. Not so here. Batman: Arkham Asylum may have a license attached. It may have voice actors reprising their roles. But it's also a finely polished adventure that, aside from a few minor blemishes, is one hell of a ride.
