    Despite the rusting Batmobile at some points, the Rocksteady developers managed to say Batman’s goodbye to Batman flawlessly. All thanks to the powerful story moments that work better than in the previous attempts. [Issue#255]

    Aside from a few sputters during the animation when entering the Batmobile and the FPS cap at 30, I didn’t experience any of the problems many PC players were experiencing with the game. If any dark, rainy, dirty and downtrodden city could be beautiful, it’s Gotham in Arkham Knight.

    After four months of work, Batman: Arkham Knight comes as the masterpiece it should have been from day one.

    Every positive–the twisting storyline, the iconic villains, and the superb combat–are undermined by other factors. Mediocre acting, rough dialogue, and overuse of the Batmobile, leave Batman: Arkham Knight that much less cohesive than its predecessors.

    Playing as Batman? Awesome. Playing as Batman through repetitive, empty missions? Less awesome. Playing as the Batmobile? Awful.

    Porting issues aside, Batman: Arkham Knight is a decent enough game. It's not the spectacular swansong we hoped for from Rocksteady, but it's another solid - if predictable - slice of Arkham gameplay, with a couple of great sections along the way.

    Arkham Knight is the latest, most improved and seemingly last installment in the Arkham series. The whole, justified controversy over its failed launch on PC doesn't do this excellent game justice. We would urge any gamer to refrain from purchasing this game (retail), as there are massive performance issues, which are currently being worked on. For the time being, although the story and gameplay mechanics are splendid, we are forced to cap our rating up to 30. Just like the game's framerate.

(I do not understand people who judge the game, for the various problems we had at the launch of the game.) The grades are:
    gameplay : 95/100
    graphics : 100/100
    story 96/100
    location : 98/100
    batmobile : 92/100

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Yes, yes, you all hate how terrible the game is ported, it's been said zillion times. So, I won't say it again.

    What I am going to say is, probably the best modern Joker of all time is in this game and he torments you all game. His parts are brilliantly done. So, just because of this, I can easily give 9/10. I am not even going to talk about amazing gameplay features.

    So, yeah, the game is actually amazing. I am sorry that most of you are so obsessed with graphics, you can't experience it because of horse blinders.

    solo una parola Rockstedy. come Ubisoft
    Scaffale..come si può lanciare un gioco in queste condizioni? in più è un porting della versione console, con frame bloccato a 30 fps, e 4 opzioni di numero per le impostazioni grafiche..
    peccato d'avvero perchè il gioco è molto bello,in più ci tenevo a giocarlo, visto che ho giocato i primi 3 capitoli, ma di certo non lo giocherò in queste condizioni, non lo prenderei nemmeno a 9,99 euro

    Do not waste your time and money on this game.

    First off, the game crashed about 4 times before I could get it to launch. The initial launch froze my entire system.

    Secondly - the framerate is capped to 30 FPS.
    Thirdly - There is a severe lack of Advanced Graphics Options in the Menu, you can't disable options such as Motion blur, ambient occlusion, v-sync, etc
    Fourth - There are serious optimization issues plaguing the game, framerates are all over the place, even after you uncap the FPS, it still runs horribly
    Fifth - Textures will randomly go from high to low to high on people, enemies.
    Sixth - Disabling Motion blur through the system INI will BREAK detective mode, you will not be able to see people
    Seventh - The texture quality is better on the consoles than the PC version.

    What's really egregious about this is that Rocksteady didn't even develop the PC version. They outsourced it to some third party composed of 12 PEOPLE. God knows, they did a horrible and shoddy job at this port. Warner Bros even had the audacity to come out and say that 30 FPS is the best way to play this game.

    Really? REALLY? Are they that dense? This is 2015, not 1995. PCs are more than capable of handling this game, yet they did a shoddy job of optimizing it and try to mask it by telling us not to uncap the FPS.

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

Whoever came up with the idea of cutting down the graphic options, locking the FPS at 30 and letting this game out in its current state is a disgrace for game developers. The technical wreck that it is right now its just an insult to anyone who preordered it. At this stage- the game is a piece of garbage. Expand

I was excited to play this and so I decided to use 4 paid leave days from work so that I could put some decent hours into the game. I went to bed on the 23rd with "13 hours remaining" and my preload all downloaded and ready to play. Woke up and "5 hours remaining" on the clock.

    Suddenly, and without any explanation so far, WB/Rocksteady decided to change the Japan launch date to July 16th - 3 weeks away. It's too late to move my paid leave and so I have basically wasted them for nothing due to the absolute bulls**t business decision.
