Arkham Asylum sets Guinness World Record

These two hated nemesis now share a world record

Game reviewers have been heralding Batman: Arkham Asylum as the best comic book game of all time. And now they all have a world record to back up their claims.

Guinness announced today that Arkham Asylum has become "Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever" due to its average Metacritic score of 91.67. The game surpassed Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the Sega Dreamcast, which had an average score of 90.

"We are so pleased to be awarding Batman: Arkham Asylum a Guinness World Record," said Gaz Deaves, manager at Guinness. "It is a fantastic new game and due to the reaction of gaming experts we believe it has a well deserved place in the Guinness World Records book."

At press time there have been no statements regarding the award from either Eidos or Rocksteady.
