Arkham Asylum began a new era in superhero games and led to a very influential series, but some Batman: Arkham games are better than others.
The Batman: Arkham series contains some of the best superhero video games ever made. The Dark Knight was already one of the most famous comic book characters and had seen many critically acclaimed Batman film adaptions, but the Arkham games put players in control of his many expertises - beating up criminal henchmen, investigating mysteries, and gliding through the night. The Batman: Arkham series is one of consistent greatness, but some of its games still stand out as better than the rest.
Each Batman: Arkham game gets "bigger" in nearly all aspects as the series progresses. The first game, Arkham Asylum, was groundbreaking on release, and the Arkham series remains widely influential in the action-adventure genre. Asylum's combat system, especially, which was refined and built upon by the subsequent Arkham titles, has been emulated by many games since, including Insomniac's Spider-Man games.
