    Synopsis


    The shadows are his home and keeping Gotham's citizens safe is his sustenance. Darkness envelops his every move and his legend lives in the whispers of each passerby. Known by many names — the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, Batman — this man lives to protect. But by pitting himself against the criminals of a city, he has only made his laundry list of powerful enemies grow. One after another, a new and nefarious threat has risen up and one after another Batman succeeded in bringing them down. But what happens when those menacing masterminds join forces? Who will rescue Gotham when a deadly roster of depraved lunatics gangs up on the shadowed warrior? Who will save us all?

    The finale to the legendary Arkham series explodes onto your screen in the most adrenaline-pumping storyline yet. The Scarecrow has returned to Gotham City and he has united a terrifying team of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn. For the first time in the franchise, you get to step behind the wheel of the iconic Batmobile as you harness the power of Batman and scramble to outwit the wicked gang after your blood. Tear through the streets and soar across the skyline in heart-pounding gameplay that will suck you in and force you to ask yourself if you have what it takes to save Gotham. Do you have it within you to be the hero the city needs? Or will the villains of Gotham overtake the Dark Knight once and for all?

      Arkham Knight: Best Superhero Game Ever Made

      Posted
      Ross

      (THIS REVIEW IS TO HELP FOR THOSE DECIDING TO BUY THIS GAME AND WONDERING IF IT'S WORTH THE PRICE TAG). The epic conclusion, Batman: Arkham Knight begins one year after the events of Arkham City, the game's main storyline follows Batman as he confronts the Scarecrow, who has launched an attack on Gotham City, causing a city-wide evacuation. Like the previous Arkham games, Arkham Knight is presented from the third-person perspective with a primary focus on Batman's combat and stealth abilities, detective skills, and gadgets that can be used in both combat and exploration. The game also introduces an amazing and long-awaited feature, this being the Batmobile as a playable vehicle, which can be used for transportation or for combat; giving the player an addition which adds to the experience of truly being The Batman in this open-world environment of Gotham City. The game expands Batman's arsenal of gadgets and combat attacks and offers a more open world structure, allowing the player to complete side missions away from the primary storyline, without being a repetitive task, but rather being a fun and exciting one that the player enjoys doing. It's gameplay is both, challenging and engaging as the enemies have different moves and fighting styles that put's the player's ability (the character of Batman) to the test of the Dark Knight's skills and abilities in combat. The other new tactic is instant team-up takedowns, available when Batman is joined by playable buddies like Robin and Catwoman. You can switch to them at any time during fights and they each have their own individual move sets that feel just different enough from the Bat to keep things interesting. Batman's final and most persistent partner-in-takedowns is the Batmobile, which can be summoned at almost any time with a button press. (You'll even drop directly into the cockpit if you summon it while in midair.) The most notable non-feature of Arkham Knight is in the way it refuses to give you all the answers. It gives you the tools to pretend to be Batman and then trusts that you'll be able to make your way. When you're trapped with a monologuing enemy, Arkham Knight doesn't remind you that you can remotely blast enemies with the Batmobile; it waits patiently for you to come to it on your own. The feeling of having to intellectually engage with your environment and abilities makes for the most satisfying simulation of Batman yet. Arkham Knight is epic and grand in terms of scale including it's character and action driven story, featuring addictive gameplay, putting you in the mind of the Dark Knight and taking you on a never-ending roller coaster of mystery, action, and excitement, being both impactful and smart as we fill the shoes of Batman and go along this journey for one last time. It's presented in a visually breath-taking experience with no flaws, presenting an improvement and fluidity in it's combat system with powerful performances from Kevin Conroy as Batman and the supporting cast (I'm purposely avoiding talking about the story, which is packed with so many stellar, memorable moments and reaches an unbelievably dark conclusion). Rocksteady's finale to the Arkham trilogy ends on a high-note, just as we've seen from Nolan's trilogy of the Dark Knight. For those big or curious on the story, like a movie it's best enjoyed by just letting the narrative take you on the journey rather than trying to guess the ending. That being said, Arkham Knight is a potent and masterfully crafted game that concludes the Dark Knight's journey in spectacular fashion that the player will keep coming back and revisiting the story or in fact, epic finale. This game is a must-buy for both Batman and non-Batman fans alike who own a PS4 system. Hope this helps! I'm awarding Arkham Knight a 5 out of 5.

      Not of the same caliber of previous entries...

      When Batman: Arkham Asylum first released in 2009, it was a breath of fresh air. The superhero genre in gaming had been saturated with mediocre and unpolished titles that didn't take full advantage of their source material (not including the Spider-Man 2 movie game, of course). Rocksteady sought to change that with AA's innovative combat system, gripping story, gritty visuals and epic soundtrack. It was arguably the best adaptation of the Batman creative license since The Dark Knight. When Arkham City released in 2011, it expanded upon AA's gameplay by adding more depth to Freeflow/stealth combat, along with unique, playable characters, a larger city to explore and exciting boss battles. From a gameplay standpoint, it was a masterpiece. Story-wise, I felt that the game was convoluted and a bit messy. Overall, however, I still thought that it was a quality game and the ending was interesting. Arkham Origins was released in 2013, and was handled by a developer other than Rocksteady, so I won't comment on it. With that bit of background out of the way, enter Arkham Knight in 2015. Following up on the three previous entries, Rocksteady must have felt that the Arkham formula was getting old. To combat this, AK features the Batmobile, a highly anticipated feature that fans had been hounding for since Arkham City was announced. Unfortunately for me, I found these sections of the game to be excruciatingly tedious and frustrating, with the Batmobile controlling like a wet bar of soap. It doesn't help that you'll spend a great deal of the game driving around in the Batmobile and engaging in uninspired tank combat. Believe me when I say that the game tries to find every excuse to shoehorn the Batmobile into its gameplay, no matter how unnecessary or forced it may feel. Remember when Batman could easily bring down weakened walls with his Batclaw in previous entries? Well, I guess he must be suffering from amnesia this time because apparently only the Batmobile can do the job. After all, who wants to "Be the Batman" when you can "Be the Batmobile," right? As for stealth gameplay, it becomes laughably sparse and dumbed-down with the new Fear Multi-Takedown feature. Whereas you would have to usually pick off enemies individually or think outside the box to take multiple enemies down in previous entries, you can now take down up to five enemies with a few button presses and analog stick pushes. Even with new enemy types like the medics, you can actually target them with the Fear Multi-Takedown, which makes stealth encounters a calm breeze rather than a tense challenge. In addition to all this, there are virtually no boss battles to be found this time around, which is also a letdown since Rocksteady has already proven that they know how to handle boss battles. So at this point, you would think that maybe they just focused all of their creative energy into crafting a remarkable story, riiiight? Wrong. Rocksteady repeatedly mentioned in interviews and trailers that the Arkham Knight would be an entirely new character made specifically for this series. They were partially correct, until you see AK without the mask. When this does occur, you don't even feel surprised because you could see who it was, coming from a mile away. The game hints at AK's identity multiple times from the very start, so much so that it just spoils the surprise when it comes to the reveal. In addition, many of the actions taken by certain characters seem very, well, out-of-character for them. I did enjoy the last hour or so of the game, where Rocksteady exhibits one of their infamous "breaking the fourth wall" antics. Also, the original ending is palatable compared to the other two that you unlock by completing side missions and such, despite not providing any closure. Overall, Arkham Knight is a massively disappointing conclusion to what could've been a fairly flawless trilogy by Rocksteady. While there are some cool moments, like a surprise guest throughout the story and the new Dual Play feature (seamlessly switching between Batman and another playable character), these don't even begin to make up for the rest of the faults that Rocksteady makes along this rather bumpy ride. 4/10.

      Pros: *The Batmobile: They overused the Batmobile in this game, maybe because it'll be the first AND LAST Arkham game to have it. So, either be happy that your gliding days are over, or cry because there will be parts of the game where you'd rather be able to use the Batmobile instead of going there by yourself to beat up a myriad of thugs while you escape the shield bashing, stun sticks and the eventual turret or drone aiming at you. *Improved graphics brought by next-gen consoles. *The new Batsuit: On the PS4 the new Batsuit looks GORGEOUS. Do note, however, that the Batsuit will not look perfect throughout the game. By the end of the game you're going to wish they let you change back to the older model, however, this new Batsuit allows you to do so many new things (that will be added below) that even if you were given this choice, you wouldn't go back to the older one. On your second playthrough (to get the platinum or remaining achievements you WILL need to play New Game +) you can get a version of the suit that does not show damage, ever. You can also use your DLC suits too, and change whenever you want. *Gadgets have been enhanced on this game, and with the new suit, the Batmobile can launch Batman as if he were a rocket into the air, with the improved grappler, and the "railgun-like Batman eject seat" from the Batmobile, you can glide as fast as ever, sometimes it's even faster than actually driving the rocket-powered Batmobile. *LOTS of bosses: As always, you can choose who you're going after by solving lots of cases. On your first playthrough, you might want to take them all. First because it'll be easier. Second because the XP system is basically gone, and you get way more upgrade points for your gadgets/batmobile doing these missions than beating up thugs on the streets (which generally won't give you any XP at all, just a health recharge.) *Original story. I gotta say I'm impressed with Rocksteady for making this game WITHOUT the Joker as the main villain. I just don't agree with who they chose to be the main villain: Scarecrow. I, for one, would rather have the Arkham Knight instead of Scarecrow as the main villain. You might agree with me if you already played the game. *LOTS LOTS LOTS of plot twists, and some interesting choices to make down the road. *A big city to explore. Although the game will force you to stay focused on only one part of it for a while. After the boring missions, you're free to roam. However, this is an Arkham game, so all the doors are likely to be closed when you find them for the 1st time. *Riddles everywhere! *FEAR Takedowns. If you love bullet-time effects, one-hit takedowns, scared thugs screaming before being knocked out, and an elaborate strategy to group at least 2 guys near one another and on a specific position (usually near the grate you're under, on the other side of a breakable wall or right beneath you when you're on the ceiling) so you can take them down fast, then this is for you. *Catwoman looks cute, so does Barbara, Harley... (I HAD to add that. Especially for Catwoman. Rawr!) Cons: *The game will get old after a while. The good part of the story/game are the Arkham Knight, Scarecrow, and an old friend who pays a visit to Batman every now and then. Other than that, it gets old because you're either on a tank battle with your Batmobile, or you're beating more thugs than the entire Expendables crew could ever fight against (except Chuck Norris, as we all know he can banish evil from the universe with a roundhouse kick) *There are basically no boss fights in this game. All you do is beat up a bunch of thugs, then beat SOME of the bosses a little, until the fight is over. *Some AR Challenges are a pain to complete, just because the game wants you to become a god on certain activities. For example, there's an AR challenge where you can't be hit, and the screen is full of ninjas. I get it, it's supposed to be hard, but some are just frustrating. *Knightmare (the New Game+) difficulty is REALLY difficult when you begin the game. You take double/triple damage, deals half or less damage, and the best feature: You don't get the "cue" of when the enemy will strike or shoot so you can counter/evade, so expect to die. A LOT. Especially on boss battles. *Unlike Arkham City, there will be a lot of characters around, like Robin, Catwoman and Nightwing. But unlike Arkham City, you cannot play with any of them. *The ending is lame. I won't spoil it, but you're probably going to hate it too. *Batwing was inserted on the game, but you can't fly it. *I wish some parts of the game (with the old friend I mentioned above to prevent spoilers) were different. If I could, I'd make it differently, but Rocksteady can't please everybody, so I have to accept what they did.

      Great conclusion to the Arkham series

      I fell in love with Rocksteady's Batman game after playing Batman: Arkham City. That game was so amazing that it just blew my mind. Therefore I had to give this one a try. After finishing the story and playing new game+, here is what I think. ***********************************************************************************PROS************************************************************************************* -Stealth and Combat Mechanics: This is what I liked the most about the Arkham City and also what I like the most about this game. You can take the enemies out sneakily or just beat them up using Batman's physical skills as well as unique gadgets. The game gives you plenty of options in terms of how you want to take the enemies out in most of the areas and one you master some basic controls this stealth and combat gameplay becomes quite fun and addicting. It was the best part of this game. -Gotham Openworld Gameplay: This game has a very nicely designed Gotham city with a lot of buildings and structures straight out of comic book which is great fan service. Also the city is larger compared to all of the previous Batman game. I loved going around the city both in batmobile as well as gliding. I also liked how it gives you option in terms of whether you want to go after a particular villain or stick to the main story. Very nicely done. -Batman Armor and gadgets: The new batsuit is simply mid blowing. I loved the armor like looks of it. This game also has a lot of the bat gadgets from previous game as well as some new ones. They make the combat and gameplay quite fun. -Batmobile/Tank gameplay: Another great addition to the game. Like the design of the Batmobile. Also liked how batmobile can be used side by side with physical combat. Many people complained about Batmobile turning into a lethal tank. But I didn't mind it. To go against an army you would need something like tank. -Story and Villains: Again very faithful to the comics. Really like how this game has a wide range of Batman villains. Also liked the story for the most part. It was probably the most climatic story where at time the whole Gotham city changes. Truly very nicely done. Not only the main story but some side stories were also very suspenseful. Bravo! -Humor/Jokes: This was probably the second best part of the game for me. For sake of avoiding spoilers, I won't say much but this game had the best jokes of all three games. There were times I laughed so hard that tears came out my eyes. Again great job. -Upgrades: You can upgrade your batmobile/tank, gadgets, batsuit and combat moves upon gaining experience. Adds RPG element to the game making it more enjoyable. -Replayability: This game has a great story and amazing gameplay. I would replay it again just for that. But in addition, it also has new game plus mode. So those who are looking for challenge, just go for it. -Bonus content: Tons and tons of bonus content. I really liked some of the costumes and Harley's quest ***********************************************************************************CONS************************************************************************************* -Batmobile/Tank Gameplay/Boss Fights: I liked the addition of Batmobile but this game relies too heavily on it. It can difficult for those who are not good with Car games. While I was able to complete all the missions at times I found the car gameplay to be too frustrating as I would be bumping it everywhere and doing more damage to Gotham than the enemy cars I am chasing. Also it would be too annoying to restart the whole mission just because you make one mistake and you lose track of enemy car or boss. Also some boss fights were very disappointing as you end up fighting them in your Batmobile. I was truly expecting physical combat with bosses like Arkham knight and a boss who takes his place as commander (don't want to spoil either's identity). I almost gave up on the game as I was having too difficult of a time defeating Arkham knight during the tank gameplay and Riddler during his final car race course. -Arkham Knight: I didn't mind the fact that Arkham knight was who I thought he would be but it was disappointing how the game doesn't do enough to throw the player off. Also as before hated how after the tank, car and stealth battle with Arkham knight there was not a physical battle to elevate the conflict to the next level. I would have rather remove the tank fight and add physical fight. ***********************************************************************************CONCLUSION********************************************************************************** Contrary to the cons described above, this is a great game which is a must buy for those who liked Arkham city and the Batman/Action/Adventure game fans in general.

      Batman: Arkham Knight is a must have for any fan of the prior games for several reasons. +Single player game is entirely playable offline. Internet broadband only needed for DLC content. +Large, open world city lets you progress as you wish shortly into the game, choosing missions or secondary goals at will. +Smooth controls, responsive and effective on foot and in vehicle. +Batmobile is a worthy new addition to the series and very effective against many enemies and obstacles Batman alone couldn't handle. It acts as a major assistant, showing up when you need its help. Control by remote control or directly as a driver. Tank mode or car mode. +City is 5+ times larger than Arkham City. 2 sections unlocked shortly after the Ace Factory is dealt with. Night time setting most times. +Ascend to the highest building to jump off and glide, or assess the city from above. +Environmental puzzles require cleverness to solve. If an entry is blocked, think of the tools available to help you. +Challenging fighting game combat with all new moves and abilities. +Depending on the situation, many playable characters to control. +Surprise character plays a big part in the story of Batman. +Robin lends a hand to help out at points in the game, along with other allies. +Clear out the city of ground tanks to explore on foot more safely, aside from gangs. +Bat seat from your vehicle launches Batman high into the air for maximum gliding exploration. +Easy, normal, hard difficulties. +Mission variety is great. Many different goals to progress through the game at your pace. +Grappling hook can catapult Batman high into the air when ascending. +Control layout very similar to prior games. Batmobile may take time to learn the new controls. +Graphics very detailed as in prior games, and 1080p this time. 49 GB minimum installation. Unreal Engine used for graphics. +Huge game with lots of unique, fun and challenging missions. +Nice variety of locations, interiors, underground areas, etc. City blocked off by bridges after story evacuation. +Fight against famous enemies. Scarecrow, Penguin, Two Face, Riddler, Poison Ivy, and more. +Lots of classic voice actors return, including Batman's Kevin Conroy. +PS4 version includes DLC: Scarecrow Nightmare Missions in a nightmare version of the city, and 3000 Batman & '60's Adam West costume. Only negatives I can think of at the time: -Early on, the rain doesn't let up, as it constantly pours hours into the game without any sign of slowing down till you advance further. -Outer city limits in the distance can't be reached, so you'll see basic city background buildings, but it's inaccessible. -Not all prior areas are present from past games in this expanded city, but that's a minor complaint. If you enjoyed Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, also from Rocksteady, this Batman is a must buy to complete the trilogy. Awesome game.

      If you enjoyed the first installments of this series then you will love this one!! The open world feel is amazing, no more gliding forever to get from place to place, you get to fully utilize the bat mobile and it is even requires for a ton of the content! The graphics are very smooth and well done, I play on a ps4 on a 55 inch high end 4k TV which upscales the graphics to even better than the 1080p and I never have any drops in frame rates. The storyline is fairly well done but the gameplay itself is where this one really warns its 5 star rating from me. I have been a huge fan of the franchise and my biggest complaint is that it is over sad face!! In the beginning of the game when you incinerate the joker was a surprise but don't worry he is not completely gone and you get to put up with his antics from just a little way into the game. The combat in the games is just as seem less as it ever has been and I just love hitting a 30 point combo which is both as easy yet more difficulty than before due to new enemy weapons and armor. There seems to be endless combat with the batmobile vs drones of all types including helicopters and some even have missile lock which allows you to blow their missiles out of the sky. There are two different types of control for the batmobile one of course is balls to the wall all out race car type driving with upgradable afterburners that allow you to catch up to enemy vehicles as well as give you the speed to drive upside down in circular motion while you are in tunnels to avoid walls that you cannot blast through. The Arkham knight himself admittedly is a weak character at best but he is just really the number 2 villain, scarecrow is calling all the shots (for the most part) and he of course is great at narrowly escaping you by holding hostages and such. Back to the batmobile, it is equipped with I winch type device that allows you to pull down walls, have the batmobile hang vertically along walls to accomplish certain tasks and one of the best features is that you have a remote control for it so you can control it from afar to get it to kill enemies and blast through walls that you cannot get to with the explosive gel. The weapons are more or less the same however they are used differently than the previous "chapters" of the game, meaning that before the bat law for instance was heavily used previously but now it is really mainly used for combat situations rather than pulling down walls and such. I could go on forever about this game but in the end a quick review would be something like this: this is by far the best game of the series, the graphics are amazing and the fast paced action will leave you breathless! A must buy for anyone who enjoyed the previous game or any open world game in the past!

      Least favorite of all the Arkham games

      This is a relative review. On it's own, it's a 3.5/4 star game. I gave it three stars based on comparing it to the previous Arkham games, all of which I thought were better. My main beef was with the Batmobile. I couldn't wait to play it, and at first it is fun as heck to drive around, running over and/or blowing stuff up. But the controls were horrible when you needed to be exact and precise, there were times when I actually hated and despised driving the Batmobile, and to compound the problem they made the Batmobile way too integral to finishing the missions of the game. 60% of this game felt like a run-of-the-mill racing game, and not a very good one at that. Even the Scarecrow and Keaton Batman add-ons are driving-centric. I loved all the past Arkham games because it really felt that playing as Batman in those games was as perfect a Batman experience as you could get; unfortunately, this game offered the least amount of actual Batman game play. That was a huge minus, and one that made this game feel like half the Batman game the prior Arkham games were. That's not all that was wrong with this game. The identity of the antagonist was entirely obvious to anyone who's read a Batman comic in the last 10 years. There was very little Batman vs. Supervillians matches in this game compared to the prior one's. And that ending... SPOILERS ... much like the ending to the Dark Knight trilogy, if the writers really think Batman is just going to quit for any reason, they obviously know very little about the Batman mythos. And I'm not even counting whatever that Bat-shadow-demon thing was supposed to be at the end. The only aspect that really saved this game from being a total let down was the amazing voice work of Mark Hamill as the Joker. Even his dialogue was fantastic, having me laughing out loud many times. Great work all around there. I would still recommend this game, but much more to racing game fans than Arkham/Batman fans. Still, though, I hope Rocksteady isn't done with DC properties. With all the Justice League hints and easter eggs in the game, it would be great to see them take a crack at a JL game, especially with the movies coming up soon.

      this game is beautiful. and it's so ambitious for the creators to have created the setting of the single night this game takes place during a thunderstorm with lightning strikes that cast ominous shadows everywhere. you can almost feel the wet leather mesh, beads of moisture falling off batman's cape... the gameplay is, for the most part, exactly the same as the previous incarnations of the batman saga. the myriad of button moves (attack, counter, fire bat claw, etc) are all too familiar. however, this chapter in the batman saga gives us something new. the batmobile. a balls to the wall version too. and for the first time ever in the batman series, the player can now control the batmobile and speed down the corridors of gotham as well as traverse the rooftops and strike back when in battle-mode...but... the control sucks. R2 accelerates the machine, but Square brakes and reverses. ok, in my mind, most games would have placed the acceleration as the X button. or if R2 accelerates, why doesn't R1 reverse and brake? and L2 puts you into battle mode...and while in battle mode, R1 fires the machine gun and R2 fires the missiles. ok. but when you're driving and all of a sudden encounter enemies and you find yourself amongst 5 tanks trying to gun you down, the first thing you do is panic trying to find battle mode...but don't accidentally hit L1 cuz that'll pop Batman out of the Batmobile and make you more likely to get shot. and while you're trying to strafe and move forward and back (using the L3 joystick) and trying to fire, you might let go of the L2 button and then you're back into regular batmobile mode....where you're trying to go by using the L3 joystick...oh wait!, that's not right,...R2...! (hit the wall), aw man!! (hit square, reversing too much)...shoot shoot shoot!!! get outta there!!! and to throw an even bigger monkey wrench into the mix, Triangle is turbo boost engine. if Square is reverse, and Triangle is turbo boost, WHY WOULD YOU NOT MAKE X ACCELERATE??? what kinda button configuration is that??? ugh. anyways, that's my only complaint about this game. other than that it's pretty solid.
