    The Dark Knight Returns!

    Rocksteady takes the helm again in their final installment in the Batman franchise. Batman: Arkham Knight is an excellent action/adventure game that looks gorgeous on PS4. Anyone who played the previous Batman games will feel instantly familiar with this version. The biggest new feature, as well as a stumbling block for the game, is the integration of the Batmobile. The developers tried to rely a bit too much on the stylized car, and what should have been a fun gameplay device turns into a bit of a chore. The Batmobile also has the ability to turn into a tank, which feels rather out of place in the lexicon of Batman vehicles. Overall, Batman: Arkham Knight is a worthy addition to the Batman legacy.

    I HATED THE BATMOBILE SO MUCH.

    Complicated review, even completely discounting the DLC rip-off and the PC fiasco, because I hated the Batmobile so much. Only considering the PS4 game, it was a good but frustrating game. The graphics, voice acting, Batman combat, variety of things to do and open world were all great! BUT THE BATMOBILE WAS HORRIBLE. I REALLY WISH IT WAS IN THE GAME AND *REALLY* WISH IT WASN'T FORCED IN BOTH THE RIDDLER AND MAIN QUESTS. It was needed in like 30-40% of the game, which sucked. I really hated nearly everything about it and the it took a 9.5 to a 6, sadly.

    I've always been a fan of the "Arkham" game series. I played (and completed story mode) for Arkham Asylum. I did purchase Arkham City and played maybe 50% of the story mode before getting bored and moving on to something else. It was a good game, but seemed like a lot of the same stuff. Arkam Knight does a good job of letting you take control of Batman again while making it seem new and fresh--not the same stuff we were doing in the previous games. The addition of the Batmobile really breathes new life into the game, and the graphics on PS4 are amazing. I've read that there were some issues with this game on the PC, but I can confirm that none of these issues are present on the PS4. Great game!

    Competent end to the Arkham series

    Arkham Knight hits all the notes of the Batman game series we've come to love with enough twists, turns, and surprises to keep you playing. The combat is still as satisfying as ever and gliding around the much larger sandbox of Gotham City is incredible. The addition of the Batmobile at first is a fun gimmick but seems to overstay its welcome. While the tank mode handles like a dream, the actual 'chase mode' feels a bit loose and sloppy, making forced race and chase sequences frustrating to complete which can slow the game down. Thankfully these are spaced out such that you never truly get bogged down. Ultimately, if you've enjoyed the previous Arkham games then this one is sure to amuse you.

    The ability to drive the Batmobile really took this game over the top. The graphics are amazing, story line is deep and engaging, and there is enough to do ALL THE TIME. In fact, there is almost too much to do. If you love completing riddles, there are over 200 in hidden locations around the HUGE open world map. A map which you are able to freely roam from the start of the game (although not with your batmobile by your side) without having to "unlock" it. Fighting style remains the same with a few new tweaks to the moves to make it look cooler. I thought it would be difficult to operate the batmobile after watching the trailers, but it is actually really easy to operate. They did a great job.

    The Batman Arkham Series is one of the best Action games you can get your hands on, and this title is nothing less of that. The inclusion of the Batmobile while a pain to some, is a great addition to me, i mean what did you expect for the Batmobile? There is alot of content after you beat the story so just beating the story will not mean the end of this game. Without any spoilers i recommend this to anybody lookin for a great action game with lots of content for later. I know i won't be putting this game down anytime soon.

    The much anticipated batman game of this year was a great game. Not my favorite for this year and it did have some flaws. The inclusion of the batmobile was a good edition I think it was used a little too much in the game. It's fun when cruising around the city in it looking for baddies to punish, but once you get deeper into the story it's over used. The car has an alternate mode and it's feels like you are in it for more then half the game. As I said before, the game is not bad it's just not the game of the year batman you know. There is other areas I would add that disappoint, but i dont want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't played. You will have to see for yourself.

    Spoiler Warning if you haven't played any of the arkham games first go do that they are great games other than origins second this takes place right after city and the game will make no sense if you didn't played the other games. now with that out of the way this game is the game of thrones of games characters you love or start to root for do die. the game makes you feel like all the characters you get to play as with different fighting skills weapons you will enjoy going back and forth during mult character fights. driving the Batmobile is so much fun you will do it any chance you get. over all this game makes you feel like vengeance,the night, and batman. so go and be the Batman

    Builds upon Arkham City

    Despite the game having slight upgrades and nothing so extensive that really called for a 4 year wait from its 2011 predecessor, the game is not bad. It's fun. It's exactly like the previous installments with the exception of the more open world, transverse the field quicker, and pretty fun batmobile moments. It's like the RPG games where you can call your horse for a ride except this is a batmobile. It's not a perfect game, but it is great for what it does. I deducted a star because it doesn't really add more than what it did before to justify a long wait, troubled PC port, and doesn't really up the ante on the previous Arkham City. Feels like a giant DLC if you really ask me.

    If you haven't visited the arkham series, I feel this is the most complete experience of the three. It's definitely worth playing for newcomers. If you're a veteran, I feel like it's slightly debatable. Though it is a good game, it's very much just more of the same from the last few titles. If you're bored with the combat, I'd pass. Unless you're particularly interested in seeing the series conclusion. I liked the story but I'm very well versed with batman lore, so I guessed who the arkham knight was just minutes into his first appearance and ended up being right. The story is still fun and honestly, the jokers role in this one for me made the whole game worth it alone.

    I like Batman, and I have very much enjoyed the Arkham games. This game is spectacular, but often feels that the size of the city is only to accommodate the need to drive the Bat mobile so much. As I play, I often feel that Arkham City was much more immersive than this game. Too bad the developers didn't build an alternate mode to allow reduced use of the batmobile centric parts. Additionally they removed the option to receive experience beating up thugs, unless it is part of a quest. This takes so much out of the game. Overall the story is great and definitely throws some curve balls, but I am sure glad I only paid $30 and not the $60 originally being asked.

    In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.

    Pacing is off, feels different from Batmans prior

    This one feels like you're picking up right from Arkham City. That could be a good or bad thing, depending. What's great is that everything in Arkham City is expanded - bigger playgrounds for predator missions, 20+ minion combat scenarios within the first few hours, etc. What's bad is that it tries to do so much that each little piece feels just a little bit less well put-together. Like it's too cobbled. The action feels a bit too much on the "fast action" side and less on the refined, smooth, "flowy" side the series is known for. Net net - good story, good way to end the series. Little polish issues and production value issues, as well as slightly off combat feel.

    This game is overshadowed the other arkham games

    Don't get my wrong, I think there are many solid aspects to this game, but I think it feels less like Batman than the earlier arkham titles. The use of the Batmobile (and it is used a lot) throws off the immersive effect of being Batman. If it was used less, or in a less militaristic way (the Battank mode) it would feel more like Batman. It just feels like something other than Batman. The graphics, sound, and atmosphere of Batman is still awesome, and the hand to hand combat is still stellar, its just that the batmobile is stealing too much of the show. I would slightly recommend this game, but only after the other arkham titles.

    First the positives: Graphics, voice acting (well done Mark Hamil!). The banter between the Joker and Bats is well done. Definitely the highlight of the game. The other notable item are the attention to detail in the graphics, like the rain water on Batmansome cape when flying around Gotham is really nice as well. The bad: Story and the controls I won't go into detail about the plot, but could of been better. The controls are good or bad depending on your play style you prefer. I preferred the controls in the LOTR game to this, even though very similar (same engine I think). So if a fan of previous games by WB, you should dig this one.

    Fitting ending to the Arkham Trilogy

    I will always stand by my opinion that Arkham City was the perfect open-world game, but Arkham Knight is a fitting end to this story arch. I will spare the details of the negatives, mainly the Batmobile, which unfortunately did suffer from some execution flaws, but I will say I still found the overall game very well done. Graphics are beautiful and the jump to PS4 definitely is welcome. Even without Mark Hamill, the Joker is done very well too. Also, I will say that even though I am not a big fan of DLC or Season Passes, I bought this one and it was well worth it. Loads of content and I am thoroughly enjoying my second playthrough.

    I've played all the other Arkham games and was super excited to see this one. It doesn't disappoint. It has everything you loved about the previous games: combat, flight, cut scenes, riddles, mysteries, and great visuals. It also adds in a new component, the batmobile. I'm not a fan of racing games so it took a while to win me over on this part of the game. I'd rather have not had it at all in the game, but once you get used to it, the vehicle just adds another level of challenge. It is a bit mature for younger audiences, so kiddos need to be supervised or left to something less intense. Otherwise, go get it now and thank me later! :)

    Lemme start by saying I'm only about 20% into the game but by far it's the best of the Arkham trilogy! The graphics really shows the power of the PS4 hands down the best looking game on PS4 to date. The combat is pretty much the same as in previous Arkham games with some added moves which are really cool. I'm loving this game!!! If I had only one gripe it'd be that you're kinda forced to use the Batmobile more than you'd like, maybe if the sequences were a little more varied or even fun it'd be different. But the way it kinda takes you out of the moment when you have to use it in puzzle solving is a bit lame. Still an amazing game tho!

    My Overall Experience with this Game has been Very Positive. The Graphics are pretty decent. The Game Play is really fun with an Engaging Story Line, while the Side Quests Add more Replay Value. I've read some complaints about the excessive use of the Batmobile, but I did not find using it to be bothersome, and once you get to Perfect your Driving Skills, it can actually be Pretty Fun. There are a lot of ways to take down the Thugs around the City. You can Either out Smart them, go in silently, or straight up, go on the full offensive. One of the Best Super Hero Games.Now, lets hope that we can get a Man of Steel game like this!

    There are a lot of great things about this game and a few bad things, but I'll keep it short: Pros: Gadgets and abilities are cooler and more numerous than ever before Villains are out in force, so many different mission chains Side missions are very optional, no need to divert if you don't want to Gotham is very alive and fluid, feels like you're right in the mix Cons Missions can become repetitive, but still not bad Fighting mechanics have become waaay to plentiful, simplified would be better Random fights can interfere with your gameplay That's really about it for the main points. Great game and definitely recommend.
