The Caped Crusader’s video game history has been a rough one. Many felt that the classic DC hero had never gotten the proper treatment until Rocksteady Studios’ excellent Arkham Asylum. Is Traveller’s Tales’ latest sequel worthy of such praise, or is it doomed to fall into a pile of other forgettable Batman games?
When it was released back in 2009, the original Batman: Arkham Asylum was a mega surprise hit, and changed the game when it came to licensed game quality. And while some of my other editors might not have it enjoyed as much, I personally thought that it was one of the best games in a year filled with Uncharted 2’s and Borderlands’. Well, now the sequel has been released, and I’m happy to say that developer Rocksteady has changed the game once again. Despite some technical problems, I have found my leading pick for Game of the Year, in a year full of Uncharted 3’s and Skyrim’s.
