    The Bat could not have hoped for a better send off. Graphically astounding, narratively compelling, and featuring two utility belts full of new gadgets. This is bat-time very, very well spent. [September 2015, p72]

    Rocksteady says farewell to the franchise with an utter masterpiece; its best game so far. Each element feels like a love letter to fans and to Batman himself. Batman: Arkham Knight is the perfect conclusion to an excellent saga, and it departs in the same way it once came: leaving us amazed and with great satisfaction.

    Batman Arkham Knight is the best entry in the series. Rocksteady knows perfectly how to explode the formula established years ago, making amazing additions in terms of gameplay. You must play this game.

    This is the best superhero fantasy we’ve ever enacted, and we’re so sad it’s over.

    The technical aspects are not only eye-popping but they’re also quite stable. The graphics are slick, the sound is stellar, the control is rock solid, and the gameplay variety is downright tremendous. I love the blending of puzzle, stealth, action, and adventure, and you have to give mad crazy props to the overall game design. I still say the story could be less predictable (perhaps give the player a little more credit in terms of literary comprehension) and the Batmobile, as awesome as it can be, is just overdone.

    Arkham Knight is certainly a bigger, and in many ways a better game than its predecessors, but those attempts to make it ‘more badass’ do more harm than good. Even so, any frustrations I have with Arkham Knight don’t take away from the fact that I was unable to stop playing for four days straight, frequently in awe. It’s a stunning achievement in many ways, a game of ridiculous polish and obvious effort, and its best moments are good enough to make the worst moments worth bearing.

    Arkham Knight is distressingly inorganic. Continuing the predictable trend the franchise, the game learns the wrong lessons from its predecessors.

    The best batman game EVER!!!! I picked it up at midnight and haven't stopped playing it since. The game is massive, so much content I feelThe best batman game EVER!!!! I picked it up at midnight and haven't stopped playing it since. The game is massive, so much content I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface.

    Gameplay: Nothing too different from the previous Arkham games but this does it better. The old mechanics have been polished moving it into the new generation of gaming. The batmobile is fun to play and so far I'm enjoying the tank battles, but hopefully we see some variation later in the game.

    Story: Although a little predictable for the more knowledgable batman fan, the majority of people will fall into the hook. Like a movie it's best enjoyed by just letting the narrative take you on the journey rather than trying to guess the ending. Im loving it so far though.

    Visuals: cant fault a thing. It doesn't look as good as the order but it is like 10 times bigger than the order in terms of content. The characters look great, the special fx are probably the best i've seen in a videogame, i really enjoyed the big scale moments (infamous second son is a close second).

    Overall I am loving the game so far and can't wait to 100% it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is fun, massive and completely awesome in every way! If not the repetitive, overpowered batmobile action that is built into this game it would be a 10 BUT forget that! The campaign is interesting, (spoilers) the way that the Joker killing joke stuff and death in the family stuff link into the campaign is amazing, it all makes sense and the suspense is enough too keep you on the edge of your seat with excitement! The dual play mechanic is BY FAR one of the most fun things in this game! and the regular combat could be one one of the best combat mechanics in gaming! AND beyond all of this, they still don't forget batmans code of conduct, he doesn't kill! this game is worth your money if you want a open world, superhero game! hope you enjoyed this review c: .

    It's the first time I play a BATMAN game, i would say that i liked it, but it isn't perfect neither. Let's see this with some goods and bads.It's the first time I play a BATMAN game, i would say that i liked it, but it isn't perfect neither. Let's see this with some goods and bads.

    + :
    • graphics are beautiful, especially when you're inside a building
    • fighting system is perfect, the animations are so good, TW3's sword fights are miles away from Batman gameplay, but i cannot compare those games, right?
    • i played it in french, and dialogues were PERFECT, i guess it's even better in english
    • the way you choose which mission to do is great
    • there are funny moments, those are my fav parts of the game !
    - :
    • too much batmobile?
    • because of it and maybe for some other reasons, the game can be repetitive sometimes, not always fortunately
    • the main story is not bad, but not great. I would say that it could be a way better, but it's acceptable

    As a final word, i can say i enjoyed this game pretty well. Not a must-have, but if you have any hesitation, buy it, if you like batman's universe, buy it immediately, and if you don't know it, try out with checking some vids before, without being spoiled lol.

    PS: it's a solid 15/20 for me, 7/10 sounds wrong, but 8 too
