With an average online review score of 91%, Batman: Arkham Asylum is the most critically acclaimed superhero game ever released. The previous record holder was Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (2000) on Dreamcast, with an average review score of 90%. Batman: Arkham Asylum’s achievement is all the more impressive because superhero spin-off titles are typically reviled by games reviewers and often suffer from a lack of development time because their launch dates are timed to support the release schedule of a movie.
