Review Round-Up - September

He is vengeance, he is the night, he is... BATMAN!

September came and went with a plethora of new and old reviews. Headlining this month of reviews is Batman: Arkham Asylum, one of the best superhero games I've ever played. It's right up there with Ultimate Spider-man and the original PS1 Spider-man games. Arkham Asylum received top honors with a 9.25 overall. We took a look at the first two games in the Ratchet & Clank franchise in anticipation for October's A Crack in Time. The original received an 8.75 while Going Commando got a terrific 9.5. Next month I'll be reviewing three more Ratchet games. Meanwhile, TMNT: Smash Up smashed and bashed its way to a 7.75, the newest chapter in the Professor Layton franchise received an 8.75, and the SPC Quickies made a triumphant return showcasing my DS collection. Stay tuned for next month as the SPC Quickies cover my Wii collection! As always, italicized reviews are classic meaning they were written before SP Central came to be.

Special thanks to my brother who wrote two new reviews this past month for Shadow Complex and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
