    I have two other Batman games from this series, so it kind of was a no-brainer to buy this one seeing as how it's the final game to be made, in the series. I've only spent a few hours playing so I am not that far in. But I have to say it is so open world that it is rather cryptic and convoluted as to what I am supposed to do next. I have been running around blindly looking for things to do. They give you "Most Wanted" and other side missions to do, but after one clue, the trail seems to grow cold and you don't know what to do next. It's really frustrating. Other than that, the graphics are beautiful, the game combat system is solid, and best of all you can drive the Batmobile! Nothing else I get to blow stuff up! I would have given this game a five star rating but seeing as how there seems to be little or no structure and you run around blindly, I cannot. This could have been game of the year material but in my eyes this falls a little short. Those honors will go to Witcher 3.

    The definitive batman experience

    Become the Bat again in the spectacular conclusion to Rocksteady's arkham series. Gameplay is smooth as butter. No one has yet to make an action title with the fluidity of the free flow system that arkham has and this game even improves on the last one. The main story's play time is about 10-15 hours but the game has plenty of side quests called arkham's most wanted that will have you solving crimes and facing off with a few of the dark knights famous villains. There is the batmobile this time and it seems like it's either a hate it or love it type of situation. I love having the batmobile and it really is a joy to drive, but so many scenarios in the game made the batmobile seem forced and instead of enhancing the batman experience, it cheapened it. Game is beautiful with top knotch audio and video presentation. However, I didn't enjoy this one as much as Arkham City. Still an amazing game and fans of the Bat and even fans of the action genre, would do well to pick it up.

    This was perhaps the best of the recent Batman series games. I particularly enjoyed how the game made me emotional at times for the characters. Being able to travel the large city with the Batmobile is also quite appealing. The only part of the game that I didn't find quite as simple as some of the other games was the riddler trophys and what not, they seemed a tad more difficult so that getting 100% completion to me didn't feel quite as easy. Of course, the game is meant to be challenging so I think that speaks more of my laziness. Still, overall the game quality was fantastic, the fighting and addition of the fear multi takedown was amazing, the increased use of items like the disrupter was certainly welcome, being able to utilize a variety of characters in combat was great, plus solving the mystery of who the arkham knight is was quite exciting. Overall the game is great, and definitely leaves room for some follow up which left me intrigued and excited.

    A Great Finally to the Trilogy

    As a fan of the Batman Arkham series since Arkham Asylum, I must say I was very satisfied with how Batman Arkham Knight concluded the trilogy with both gameplay and story. The game offers the same great combat from Arkham City with some new combat moves and enemies to make it feel fresh. The stealth also offers a new variety of moves and gadgets as well as enemies to switch up the usual flow of a stealth encounter from previous Arkham games. The introduction of the Batmobile also helps in adding new gameplay elements to the game. With the Batmobile, one can navigate the city, complete puzzles, engage in tank combat and in pursuits. I did feel like the Batmobile was slightly over-used thought, but most of the gameplay surrounding it I found enjoyable, with the exception of the Batmobile stealth sequences (Yes, there is stealth for the Batmobile too). Overall, I highly enjoyed Batman Arkham Knight and I feel its an excellent game on many levels.

    A great conclusion to the Arkham games.

    Before the Arkham games the Batman franchise has had a rocky reputation with video games. It's not until Rocksteady's surprise hit Batman: Arkham Asylum that really shook the video game community by surprise. That still hold true with their latest and final installment Batman: Arkham Knight. The game let's you control Batman, and it really does an excellent job of making you feel like you're Batman. The combat, story, and gadgets all feel genuine to the world and it's characters. The only negative thing I have to say about the game is the overuse of the Batmobile, I'd say you use it almost 40% of the game, and that's a lot. It almost feels forced, and after awhile it gets dull and repetitive.It also has a "tank" mode, which pulls me out of the experience, as it's something Batman won't ever do. Overall it's a far from perfect game but still a fun experience and offer a great conclusion to the Arkham games.

    When playing this game, it feels like Rocksteady's previous game, Arkham City, with the same smooth fighting mechanics, and gadgetry. However, this new entry mixes things up by adding the Batmobile, which can be driven like a regular car, or controlled like a tank. While I still enjoy having Batman walk around and beating up random thugs, the Batmobile seems to take on a prominent role in the gameplay. A lot of areas seem to require the use of the Batmobile, either by driving it or by remote controlling it. It seems at times that the game is forcing the Batmobile on you in order to add more variety, which is fine, but I kinda think the game would have been alright even without the Batmobile present. What Rocksteady had with Arkham City was already a masterpiece, but you know what they say: Variety is the spice of life. Apparently Rocksteady was following this idea literally as they were designing the game.

    A disappointment

    What can I say? The title best describes my feelings regarding this game. Noted as the final Batman Arkham game by Rocksteady, I highly anticipated it. What I got was a complete waste of a game with perhaps one of the most overhyped and ultimately disappointing gameplay mechanics, the Batmobile. Yes the much advertised Batmobile is a nightmare to play with and the fact that the game forces you to use it at times during the game to proceed further just aggravates the heck out of me. And not to mention, the story just absolutely sucked. The Scarecrow is simply not the Joker but he can still be portrayed as a capable villain. Unfortunately Dr. Crane will have to wait again as this game does him no justice. On the plus side, this game looks absolutely gorgeous and controls well. If you're a fan of the Arkham games, give it a rent to see it through. Otherwise save your money and skip.

    The Batman Arkham games have been a pretty good series and Arkham Knight is no exception. It's a fun game with beautiful graphics and a fairly interesting, if not original Batman storyline. While I haven't fully completed the game, yet, I am enjoying it immensely and can't wait to finish to see how it will all end. This game seems more suspenseful and much darker than previous games. I really think and hope that the Arkham series is ending on a high note. If you have played both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, then you are in for a treat. As for Origins, it was good, but not as good as the first two and Knight might very well be on par, it not surpassing, the first two Arkham games as quality goes. Playing the batmobile is a little awkward and has a little bit of a learning curve, but you feel almost unstoppable when driving around in it. So in conclusion, this is definitely a title to pick up this year.

    "This is how Batman dies..."

    Arkham Knight is the final game in the Batman Arkham series. Its a mix of stealth, action, and tank combat. Personally, I believe that the tank portions of the game overshadow the stealth aspects of the game, which was what made the Arkham series popular to begin with.The team at Rocksteady absolutely nails Batman, his enemies, and his allies in terms of characterization. The story was very exciting and kept me guessing the mysterious Arkham Knight's identity until the very end. I suppose to the game's benefit and detriment, that there are more characters to play beyond Batman. While they are diverse and play differently, the game gives you little to no time to play with them, and even less time exploring Gotham with them. That being said, there is enough side content that deviates from the main story to keep you engaged long after Batman's night is over. Overall, I would it an 8/10.

    Having played the other games in the Arkham series, I was seriously looking forward to this game and came away pretty satisfied. The game was visually stunning and the combat and world traversal was better than ever. I really liked the new Team Play mechanic that lets you fight alongside characters such as Robin and Catwoman. Riding around in the new Batmobile was an awesome experience, but proved to be a mixed blessing. I felt that the developers tried to shoehorn the Batmobile combat into too much of the game. Many of the main missions and side missions revolve around shooting tanks with your Batmobile weapons. While the first few are good, it starts getting old towards the end of the game. The overuse of the Batmobile was probably my biggest issue with this game. Although not my favorite game in the series (that honor goes to Arkham City) it's definitely still worth playing.

    The positives first: 1) The game looks really good 2) The story is pretty solid for the most part 3) The on-foot action is pretty good The negatives: 1) Way too much batmobile stuff, and it is pretty much all just tacked-on and unnecessary 2) Way too many side things to do for a story-driven game that are just not fun 3) You need to do all of the side stuff to experience all of the story I think the amount you will enjoy this game comes down to how much you enjoy playing with the Batmobile and I didn't care for it. I also did not want to have to do 243 Riddler challenges (some of them using the horrid Batmobile) to see all of the story and it got to the point where it killed my desire to even play the game. Some people really enjoy the game, but it was just not for me. I'd recommend renting it if you can first to find out what your tolerance will be for the Batmobile stuff.

    Too much batmobile

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This game is nowhere near the greatness that was Arkham Asylum and City. The villains in this one are boring compared to the Joker, Ra's al Ghul and Hugo Strange from the previous games. The Arkham Knight's reveal was also lame and you'll see it coming a mile away if you are even remotely familiar with The Batman animated universe or comics. The most disappointing part of the game though was the batmobile. The game will force you to fight and endless barrage of unmanned tanks throughout the game that get more numerous as you progress. These tank battles are boring and take up too much time. Most of the boss battles also consists of you fighting in the batmobile. When your playing as Batman the game really shines, it's just unfortunate they felt the need to shoehorn the batmobile into the combat and the puzzles. If you must buy it at least wait for a price drop.

    i bought this game despite the fact that ive never owned any past batman games (although i have played several of them) - the controls of the bat,an games are universally the same in terms of feel and pace of game. i wasnt a fan of the driving parts since keep in mind this isnt forza and those game physics are missing from here but great great action, the game gives you the option to play it stealth where you silently take down your foes or encounter them face to face. no pace is too slow or too fast. its just right. this one lets yoyu play as harley quinn with dlc or bonus. i would recommend it even if youve never played the pasts ones although from a story point i would suggest playing the last one or at leat looking at a youtube video of the end of the previous one else yuoull be wondering why joker is being creamated at the start of the game.

    This game over uses the Batmobile. There are moments when the action should take center stage, but instead your are thrust into another needless and boring batmobile chase. Also the main story downplays the predator and batman combat that was so much fun in previous entries. The upside is that the side missions is all the stuff I loved about Batman. Great predator gameplay and fun combat scenarios. You pick a side mission and go, some even involving the batmobile that are more interesting and fun than anything in the main story. The reason this is a disappointment for me is because the game is not fun in the story mode which sucks because the story is the best Batman story out there. the Arkham Knight is a compelling villain and the story beats are great, but then you get thrust again in the batmobile for another boring chase mission.

    The final chapter of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has all the best systems from their previous games, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City....plus one big new one, The Batmobile. Some things have been slightly improved from earlier titles, like the mission wheel, while the Batmobile (and its neat "tank mode") is a completely new and exciting way to take on baddies. The story is really quite good, with a twist you may or may not see coming, but should enjoy either way. Past characters with famous names return, but their are new ones, too. It really is the culmination of everything Rocksteady has built since beginning development of their first Batman game, Arkham Asylum. Arkham Knight is an excellent game with enough to do and experience to warrant its 60 dollar asking price. If you are a fan of Batman and video games, this is a no brainer.

    The Dark Knight returns for the final installment of the Arkham series. This edition adds the Batmobile & the ability to team up with the various members of the "Bat Family". Tearing through the streets of the Gotham in the Batmobile is wicked fun. Teaming up with Nightwing, Robin & Catwoman in combat is so much fun, I would like a full game that just features that. Arkham Knight is definitely a fun game & must have if you played the previous Arkham editions but.... I feel ths story is not nearly as compelling as the "Arkham City" game. Which brought in every awesome member of the Bat's rogue gallery & did it in a very believable way. Even still the combat, wonderful toys, & the largest most beautifully rendered model of Gotham City make this game too good to pass up. Excuse me I have to get back bending corners in the Batmobile.

    None of the Arkham games have been flawless but they have all been close(not counting Origins). The free-flow combat is just as much fun as it's ever been. The addition of team up moves makes the mob combat more interesting as it allows you to switch back and fourth at will. There aren't many predator rooms which was kind of disappointing. The batmobile feels like a mixed bag as it's kind shoe horned in at times. The combat sections are good in the beginning but latter in the game the difficulty ramps way up and there are only a few upgrades you can get for it. The racing sections are also kind of clunky and take a lot of trial and error to get through. The story is well paced with plenty of twists that go into Batman's relationships with the rest of the characters, both ally and villain.

    This is a gorgeous game. From the get go I had to stop and take multiple screenshots of Gotham City. But once the luster wanes, Batman: Arkham Knight is a fun game with many flaws, especially the Batmobile combat. The last 1/3 of the game focuses too heavily on the Batmobile, the puzzles are not well constructed, and the side quests have little to no bearing on the actual state of Gotham. This is a side effect of losing the forest for the trees. There are too many individual elements in this game that simply don't mix well together. When you're Batman, fighting on the streets or grappling through Gotham Arkham Knight reaches enormous highs. But the botched main villain and "hidden" ending are only two more examples of the lows that can't quite make up for an otherwise great 20 hours as the Caped Crusader.

    Batman: Game of they Year?

    This game may be a contender for game of the year solely based on the fact that it is , when you get down to it, a great gaming experience. I have yet to finish the game to completion, but from what I've played so far it seems to be one of the best in the series. Give this game a chance, Even though some gamers have heard that the Batmobile is used too much, it takes some getting use to the controls, and the more you play, the more sense that it makes as to why Rocksteady put the Batmobile in the game. The game itself is massive, so that is why the Batmobile is in the game. Best Buy did a great job of advertising this game in their store that I go to also because a lot of people there, that didn't even know a new Batman game was coming out, soon knew because of their amazing advertising posters, standees etc.

    Being such a fan of the other Batman games, I was super excited about this one coming out. I have to say that I was pretty disappointed when I started playing. While the PS4 clearly offers stunning views and great game immersion, the whole experience is significantly limited by the clunky controls and gameplay. The intuitive combos of the previous games were replaced by what can only be called "awkward" new controls. In an effort to us the new touch pad, the developers added complication for no apparent purpose. For similar reasons the gameplay for the batmobile is also complicated unnecessarily. At the end, you get a game you were really looking forward to but you may or may not even play all the way through because of how frustrating it is to play. I expected more from Rocksteady and HAVOK.
