The story is full of suspense with countless twists which make it equal in quality with city's. I was concerned that as everyone keeps saying the bat mobile is overused. Completely false. It's an absolute joy to take control of! I found myself feeling sad near the end of the game where there were few Arkham knight drones to destroy. Graphics are indeed remarkable but I'm not rating the game because of this. I'm urging you as a fan of the Arkham series that this game is sensational. The story, gameplay (including the batmobile), the voice acting and the features if this game are unparalleled. Rocksteady, you deserve all the credit you can get. You've done wonders with this batman Arkham series. Listening to negative reviews is important, but not in this instance. There's nothing to complain about. Can't wait for the next game rocksteady starts working on!… Expand

Oct 21, 2015After three games I wasn't sure Rocksteady was going to be able to keep the magic of the series going for their closing chapter. Luckily I wasAfter three games I wasn't sure Rocksteady was going to be able to keep the magic of the series going for their closing chapter. Luckily I was wrong. They deliver once again thanks to a narrative that pulls no punches, expansions on nearly every aspect of the previous games, and one of the most refined gaming experiences ever created. Some might be turned off by some of the changes to the formula, but it is hard to deny the level of quality this game has. It's one of the best open-world experiences on the market and certainly one of the best superhero games of all time.
Gotham a huge place to explore and villains have taken over every nook and cranny. Plenty of side diversions are available that will hours to your playtime. Completing them all will allow you to see the full ending. An extra incentive for doing it all. It's not like we really needed one though. Hunting down all of those Riddler trophies might be a pain at times, but going out of your way to tackle some of those other objectives is often just as fun as the main quest. They usually lead to exciting encounters with classic Batman villains with confrontations that conclude in ways that are untraditional for the series. Arkham Knight sure isn't afraid to surprise you with something new and unexpected form time to time.
As fun as the side-quests are it can be hard to pull yourself away from the main-quest for too long. That's because the story is so fantastic. It's dark, has some great surprises and twists, and shows that Caped Crusader at his most vulnerable. This is one of the most exciting Batman stories ever told, and it's one that will have you dying to see that next cutscene.
The expected elements of the series are present. The gadgets, the fantastic flow of combat, and others are all back once again. Only they never been smoother. Everything feels incredibly. Rocksteady has polished and refined every aspect of the controls and overall fluidity of the experience. Playing it is as smooth as butter. It might even make the previous games feel clunky in comparison.
One of the new additions comes in the form of some new playable characters who team up with Batman in certain encounters. They don't play any differently, but it's fun to play as a different character for a bit and use those flashy team takedowns. The other new addition is the Batmobile. It's a centerpiece of the gameplay experience. The amount of control you have over it is astounding. A good thing as you will be using it frequently. Vehicular combat is a big part of the game. Plenty of puzzles are tide to the machines many capabilities as well.
Some have complained about how much it is utilized in the game, but I personally can't see why. It's a blast to use and adds some variety to the experience that keeps it from being Arkham City 2.0. I honestly don't think this game would have succeeded as well without it, and to be honest most racing games can't handle cars this well.
Rocksteady concludes their story on a very high note. The gameplay is better than ever and Gotham is filled with things to do. The story dives deep into Batman's psyche and leaves us with plenty of unforgettable moments. Some minor annoyances and a few unfortunate technical issues (it freezes from time to time) are present. However the overall polish the game has makes them almost unnoticeable.
This is one of the most fun gaming experiences I have had in years. It nails just about every aspect one could hope for a game to deliver in. It stands out as one of Batman's shining moments. To top things off it is easily the best looking game I have ever played. It delivers in ever category and I can't recommend it highly enough provided you've played the other games (the story really needs to be seen from the beginning). It's been a while since I have been this amazed by a game.
I give it a near-perfect score of 9.9/10.… Expand

The graphic is stunning, story is very dark but predictable. To be honest side missions are also fantastic. Batmobile is amazing idea, but it is simply to much of this. Too many missions depends on our vehicle and without quick, we're in trouble. Upgrading Batman is actually our secondary objective. Lack of new and fresh ideas and no boss fight reduce rating. i expected much ore from this game but it is still way above the average.… Expand

The graphics are sharper but not better than the previous gens versions and the gameplay is the same. That's not a bad thing because the other games were excellent but surely we should expect more than a pathetic attempt at Bat tank/mobile sections, that are tacked on and are terrible.
I bought this game on Day One and after doing the same with The Witcher 3 and Project Cars, I can honestly say that I will be waiting at least 2 weeks from now on.
My advice? Wait for this game to go down in price before buying. It's an okay game but not as good as Asylum or City.… Expand
