We’re sure by now many of you out there have played Arkham Asylum and realised how fantastic it is, but if you remain undecided, the Dark Knight of Gotham has been awarded a Guinness World Record for the ‘Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever’, with some bat-tastically good scores.

Metacritic have announced that to date Batman: Arkham Asylum has the highest ever average review score out of any superhero game to be released with an average of 91.67 from reviews around the world.

The game flew into shops in the UK today on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PS3 version of the game recieving exclusive DLC allowing you to play as the Joker. If you haven’t got the game already, we sug-jest you get out there and buy it.
