"The best licensed games utilizes the source material to enhance the experience. More often than not, licensed game developers simply use the license as life preserver to keep a mediocre title afloat. Batman: Arkham Asylum was most definitely the former. Rocksteady's game could stand on its own as a solid stealth action adventure - it's true. And with all the Batman lore and atmosphere infused into the game, it was elevated to a truly entertaining experience."
