Hands-on write-ups for Batman: Arkham Asylum are starting to trickle onto the net.

Two worth having a gander at, so far, are from GamesRader and Gamespot.

Here’s a quote from the GR look-see:

“Think of a great superhero game. No, not a good one — there are plenty of those around — but one as essential as, say, Grand Theft Auto IV or BioShock. You’re struggling, right? That’s because there aren’t any. Or rather there weren’t any until Batman: Arkham Asylum came along. After an extensive hands-on, exploring the majority of the enormous Arkham Island – we’ve come to the conclusion that not only is this Batman’s best game to date, but quite possibly the best superhero game ever made. A bold claim, but one we think you’ll agree with the moment you take your first tentative steps into the foreboding darkness of Gotham’s legendary loony bin.”

Now before you run off to read them, keep in mind there are a few spoilers in there, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Starting to get excited over this a bit, here.
