Recommended: Batman: Arkham Asylum - Xbox 360 and PS3

It's been a long time coming, but Batman: Arkham Asylum finally hits stores for Xbox 360 and PS3 this week. We've been ploughing through the game to bring you our review ahead of release, but we've already seen enough to know it's well worth buying. If you've been after a comic book game to do the genre proud this is it. With superb production values, diverse gameplay and tonnes of collectables this will keep bat fans entertained well into September. One of the games of the year? Check back in December to find out.
