Eidos marketing boss Jon Brooke had told MCV that Batman Arkham Asylum is “close to perfect”.
“We expect Batman Arkham Asylum to not only be the biggest game of the summer but one of the stand-out games of the year,” he said.
“It’s as close to perfect as we’ve ever come. It looks amazing, plays beautifully and has a rich, twisting storyline with enormous replayability. I’m confident enough to say that it will set a new benchmark for licensed games and it’s going to establish itself as one of our best games ever.”
It’s out later this year for PC, PS3 and 360.
