Two classic games made to look notably worse than they did over five years ago, which is one villainous masterplan even Batman can’t foil.

Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are amazing games, but this collection doesn't stand up to the same quality. The visuals have been improved, but at a loss of the dark ambiance of the originals. The 30 fps frame rate isn't locked, with the occasional stutter marring the experience. Worse, there's no new content available here. If you own either game on PC, there's no reason to get Return to Arkham.

Batman: Return to Arkham is a good game but and awful remaster. It should have improved the frame rate, visuals and gameplay, but does none of that leaving the game almost as it was.

Two great games from the last generation, very improved in graphics but sadly still with the same frame rate.

It’s been great revisiting two wonderful games, but the framerate drops and lighting changes take away much of the charm of playing them.

Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are two superb action games that are essential for Batman fans. The ports in Return to Arkham have good intentions but fall short of the greatness required.

Batman: Return to Arkham is a package of two stellar games and impossible not to recommend to anyone who hasn’t played them yet.

Two of the finest games of the past decade don't quite get the treatment they deserve in Return to Arkham, with Arkham Asylum in particular, suffering more than benefitting from the visual overhaul. The game’s are still magnificent love letters to Gotham’s protector though, even if these remasters don’t give the same level of respect to the pointy-eared one.
