Average User Score: 8.1Aug 29, 2015I wish more games like this were made these days, a game that feels like a movie, I just finished it earlier today and I thought the storyI wish more games like this were made these days, a game that feels like a movie, I just finished it earlier today and I thought the story cohesion was perfect for this type of game, atmosphere and genre, this is supposed to be a cheesy 90's style horror film so the characters need to do cliche things and make poor decisions or it wouldn't fit the genre.
For me the game got even better in the second half, it went away from those earlier cheap jump scares once the real threat was revealed and took on a different tone, the last few chapters felt like an episode of Supernatural, early Supernatural's monster of the week stories, I loved that.
Going back to the second half of the game, the first and 2nd half of the game do feel like different games but I feel that's something that should be in the plus column and not a negative, the first half was a great misdirect, something that's lacking in games and movies of this genre these days.
I know it's all subjective and everybody has their own opinion but I just thought I'd share mine, This game is getting mostly positive reviews but I still feel even in those reviews it's being undersold, for me it's a 9.5 but for this scale based on my enjoyment i'll give it a 10 on this scale since you can't (.5) anything.… Expand

I'm cutting right to the chase, this game is a 10, so far in this generation of gaming I've been let down more then i've been thrilled, amazed, liked or even just felt content with a game i've been looking forward too, that all stops with Batman: Arkham Knight, this game lives up to all the hype, the hype that began with the surprisingly great Arkham asylum followed by the even better Arkham city, I was actually a little worried leading into Arkham knight because it wouldn't be the first time that a game studio knocked it outta the park with the first 2 games of a franchise only to come back with a disappointing 3rd entry, that is as far from the truth as I can get with Arkham Knight, this game delivers on every single aspect...

If you name it, this game has it in spades and in a surprising twist, this game actually has a lot of funny moments (That I refuse to spoil) and a few really dark moments that make excellent call backs to Batman's comic history, I was even surprised that there were actually a few jump scare moments that I wouldn't have associated with a Batman title, this truly feels like a Next gen title and the Graphics are second to none, he way the rain slides down Batman's mask and cape look extremely real that it's hard to imagine that it was all generated in a computer, to give this game a 10 feels like I'm under selling it but that's highest the scale goes, so a 10 it is.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Apr 8, 2015I find it funny how jaded and well flat out stupid some reviewers can be these days when dealing with franchises that have been around aI find it funny how jaded and well flat out stupid some reviewers can be these days when dealing with franchises that have been around a while, especially sports games, it's as if it doesn't bring some new mechanic that completely changes the experience then people cry about how it's just a re-pasted version of the previous game.... the reason I bring this up is because my first experience with this franchise was MLB 09: The show and it hooked me right off the Bat (No pun intended) I've played every game in the series since then and every years the game only improves each and every year but you wouldn't know it from reviews, previous versions of this game like the 09 version and 2010 version got 9's across the board yet this years version struggles to get 8's, this makes no sense to me especially considering it's more or less the same game as the 09 or 2010 version that were getting massive praise but with added features and even more unbelievable realism, that's why I feel with these repeat sports games people are just jaded or stupid, The MLB games are the most realistic sports games i've ever played, sometimes you need to do a double take to make sure it's a video game and not an actual live game on TV.... as I said this franchise only gets better and it baffles me how a franchise that used to get near perfect scores in the past struggles now and gets a lot of 7's and 8's now when it gets vastly better year single year, it's not exactly a 10, i'd give it a 9.5 but since this scale doesn't don't .5's i'll give it a 10 because it deserves better love from reviewers then it's been getting.… Expand

Average User Score: 7.5Oct 27, 2013Lets be honest Arkham origins isn't as good as Arkham asylum or Arkham city but did anyone expect it to be, Rocksteady made the first everLets be honest Arkham origins isn't as good as Arkham asylum or Arkham city but did anyone expect it to be, Rocksteady made the first ever good Batman game with AA and then made a masterpiece with AC so WB montreal had HUGE shoes to fill and for the most part they they did a very good job, i feel the only real negative is the open world, when out on the streets it feels lifeless there's nothing to do basically but fight thugs and destroy riddlers stuff (no question marks in this game cause he isn't known as riddler yet) but once your back on the critical path following the story it's right on par with AA & AC plus the story itself is extremely good at times surpassing AC in the setup, if i were to just rate this based on the story aspect i would give it a 10 but to review a game u need the whole package so based AO as a whole i give it a 9... it's not rocksteady but even when we get only half a Batman game it's still awesome.… Expand

NO... the only downside for me personally is this game has a lot of backtracking but that's nothing new for people that played DS1 (quick tip if u beat the game sit through the credits cause there's something not to be missed at the end) Dead space 3 starts 2013 in an awesome way.… Expand
