The best selection of Batman games on PlayStation
What are the best Batman games? Well, there a no shortage of contenders to choose from, because when you think about it Batman is the perfect video game protagonist. Bruce Wayne’s crime-fighting alter-ego excels at acrobatic hand-to-hand combat, of course, but he also has access to a wealth of...

Holy rocket-powered car soccer, Batman
Our mathematics might be slightly off here, but as far as we can tell, there have been about a trillion billion Batman movies. That's what it feels like, at least.

Fast forward to now and we're still none the wiser, really, save for a fresh report that...
News Unannounced Batman Game Teased on Social Media Again by WB Montreal
Capture the Knight
This upcoming Batman game has to be the worst kept secret in the video game industry following months of teasing from publisher WB Games Montreal.

A little earlier in the year, WB Games Montréal got everyone all excited about a possible new Batman title. This game, which is all but confirmed following pretty blatant teasers, is said to be named Batman: Arkham Legacy, and will allegedly focus on a Court of Owls storyline. It sounds rather exciting, but there aren't...
Rumour Is the Unannounced Batman Game Called Arkham Legacy?
A reveal at The Game Awards?
Last month, everybody thought we were gearing up for the announcement of a new Batman title during Sony's previous State of Play livestream. But then it came and went with no such reveal.

News New Batman Arkham Game Rumours Sound Like Absolute Nonsense
The Joker's having a laugh
Rumours of a new Batman: Arkham title being in development have been doing the rounds for years at this point, and we guess that it's time for another one. This latest "leak" comes from a supposed game tester over at Warner Bros., and that's more than enough to make you doubt it from the start. Of course, numerous websites...
Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Five: Same Stitch (PS4)
Joke's on you
Telltale’s take on the Batman universe has been one of the few shining lights in its portfolio of late, and The Enemy Within has successfully eschewed the sophomore slump with another sterling five episode series that turns everything you know about the Dark Knight on its pointy-eared head. This finale is far from perfect, but...
Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Four: What Ails You (PS4)
Ail be back
It’s testament to Telltale’s work within the Batman universe that we didn’t even realise Episode 4: What Ails You does away with the cape and cowl almost entirely. That’s right, for the majority of Season Two’s penultimate instalment, you’ll be blitzing it as billionaire playboy, Bruce Wayne. Clocking in at around an hour,...
News Telltale's Batman Will Actually Make Your Choices Matter
Two totally different finales
Love them or loathe them, your decisions rarely mean much in Telltale games.

Whichever fence you sit on, we’re quite impressed to learn that there’ll be two disparate...

Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Three: Fractured Mask (PS4)
Ready, steady, crook
The best thing about Batman: The Enemy Within so far is how many different relationships you’re forced to manage. Playing as both billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne and the Caped Crusader himself, Episode 3: Fractured Mask picks up where previous instalment The Pact left off, with the square-jawed suit right at the heart of...
Weirdness Telltale Has Really Gone and Cocked Up This Time
Mistakenly uses image of assassinated Russian ambassador
The new episode of Telltale’s Batman is genuinely one of the best chapters it’s put out in months, but Houston we have a problem. Eagle-eyed gamers have noticed an out-of-place asset in the title: the body of an assassinated Russian ambassador. We’re not going to host the images here...
Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode Two: The Pact (PS4)
Friends close, enemies closer
Oh, this is good. Telltale’s take on Batman has always traded on the duality of the Dark Night, but in this excellent instalment, all of its efforts come to fruition. Tasked with befriending Gotham’s most gruesome, Bruce Wayne’s morals are pushed to their limits, as he’s forced to ingratiate himself to the likes...

Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode One: The Enigma (PS4)
Riddle me this
Telltale’s take on Batman lore ended with a bang a little less than a year ago, and The Enemy Within picks up the baton from its predecessor without pumping the brakes.

News Telltale Hints That The Wolf Among Us Rumours Are Fairytales
But there's probably a new Batman on the way
Good ol’ games media, you’ve only gone and done it again.

Here's the launch...
Video Watch Us Become the Batman with PlayStation VR
Batman: Arkham VR very much falls under the "experience" category rather than a full-fledged game, but how much would you pay to be the Dark Knight for an hour? Well, developer Rocksteady's charging $19.99/£15.99 for this, which certainly looks steep on the surface, but it's by far one of the best examples of virtual reality so far...

Round Up Batman PS4 Reviews Reveal the Telltale Title We Deserve
Much ado about Bruce
There was a time when a new Telltale title was an event, but given how prolific the publisher's been with its episodic output of late, its Batman series has been met by murmurs rather than fervour.

News Holy Trophies, Batman! Telltale's New Series Has a Platinum

E3 2016 Suit Up With The Reveal Trailer for Batman: Arkham VR
Rocksteady as she goes
One of the announcements in the mercifully brief PlayStation VR section of Sony's E3 press conference today was for Batman: Arkham VR.

Game of the Year #7 - Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4)
It's an indication that 2015 has been an impressive year for games, when a Rocksteady Studios Batman: Arkham title doesn't break into the Game of the Year Top Five list, and settles for a respectable seventh place from Push Square instead. Even its E3 2015 trailer was overshadowed beneath the cowl of amazing announcements that preceded...
