Product: Batman: Arkham Origins
Developer: NetherRealm Studios
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
It could be argued that, like Batman Arkham City Lockdown before it, Batman: Arkham Origins kind of misses the point of its lead character by placing him in a beat-'em-up.
Batman isn't a brawler. He's a highly skilled combatant, of course, but he's a detective and stealthy infiltrator first.
Batman: Arkham Origins might not be the quintessential Batman game, then, but it is an entertaining slugger nonetheless.
Once again, developer NetherRealm Studios has utilised the Unreal Engine to make Batman - and the assorted petty crooks and arch-villains he must beat the snot out of - look and move like a dream.
If your favourite take on Batman is the 'biff-bang-pow' kind rather than the 'world's greatest detective' kind, then you'll find plenty to like in this straight-forward button-mashing brawler
