After first appearing in comic book form in 1939, the Caped Crusader has gone from strength to strength, appearing in several TV shows - animated and live action - as well as many films, the latest of which, Batman Begins and the stupidly-successful The Dark Knight, have catapulted Batman back to his money-drawing best. However, despite success in most other forms of media, the Bat never really took off on the videogame medium. He's seen some solid adventures - Batman on the NES, for instance - but he's never exactly set the world on fire. That is, until now, because Batman: Arkham Asylum is simply brilliant".
