We've had a look at a few games for iPad that use the Unreal Engine, but did any of them have Batman? No, no they did not. But this one does. The inmates of Arkham have escaped, and, as Gotham's premier masked vigilante, it's your job to put them back. Naturally, this involves punching. Lots of punching. It has the Unreal-style tapping-and-swiping combat mechanic, and some pretty sweet combo and finishing moves. It's not as polished as Infinity Blade II, but it works, and there are some sweet extras, such as unlockable bat suits, and wallpapers for your iDevice. Still. I can't help wishing that there had been some sort of detective component.
