3. Batman: Return to Arkham (PS4)

A remaster compilation featuring seminal PS3 superhero titles Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, this isn’t the best re-release ever produced. Handled by outsourcing studio Virtuos, the visual improvements are minimal – and, honestly, at times mess with the sombre visual style of the originals. However, the quality of the included games is undeniable – two of the greatest superhero titles of all-time – and thus Batman: Return to Arkham still comes highly recommended, even if it could have ultimately been better.

2. Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3)

A transformative title that put British developer Rocksteady among the very best, Batman: Arkham Asylum’s psychological storyline captivated players from start-to-finish. It also introduced a violently compelling combat system, designed around counters and combos, which would go on to be replicated by dozens of other superhero titles, including Sony’s own Marvel’s Spider-Man. But this wasn’t just about fisticuffs and fancy cinematics: the titular Arkham Asylum proved a labyrinthine playground for the Caped Crusader’s gadgets and gizmos, requiring Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego to use his brain just as much as his brawn.

1. Batman: Arkham City (PS3)

The bigger and apparently better sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City expanded upon the stealth-action-puzzle foundations of its predecessor, serving up one of the PS3's finest titles. The Caped Crusader is once again tasked with putting a stop to the machinations of Gotham's many baddies, which results in some incredible boss fights and memorable story moments. Widely regarded as one of the best superhero games ever made.
