    Well, from what I've played so far from the story mode I've found it incredibly amazing. The whole feeling of anxiousness you get while playing the game just to find out who is The Arkham Knight was indeed killing me from time to time. I don't want to give spoilers of the gameplay, but theirs scenes in the game that are quite touching, the deaths of some hit the Bat-Man, leaving him both physically and mentally broken. Overall, I really enjoyed the game and was content with having preordered it. I haven't really gotten into Harley Quin's story mode that comes algo with the preorder, but I'm sure it's just as good as the game itself.

    A technically good game that lacks variety

    Arkham Knight, for PS4, handles well, is technically sound, but there is a severe lack of variety in the actual gameplay itself. As others have mentioned, the Batmobile is the game's biggest flaw, because too much of the game is spent inside of it doing the same missions over and over. There's also a truck load of content that is hidden behind a paywall that you can only earn by purchasing instead of earning through gameplay. The way some characters are used in the game as well is questionable because it betrays what they are known to be.

    Terrific finale to the trilogy

    While the ending could have been a little better and the Batmobile controls could have been a bit tighter, I was VERY impressed with this game. Rocksteady raised the bar once again with more gadgets and moves for Batman than before - and you'll need them to take on the greatest threat to Gotham City to date. The best part about this game for me was driving throughout the city chasing down thugs and picking up side missions. One of my criticisms of Arkham Origins was the city felt lifeless, but Rocksteady breathed life into it. This is a fantastic game and a must-play if you've ever dreamed of being a superhero.

    I was skeptical of this title at first. I felt Arkham City was one of the greatest games of all time, with an intensely deep and rich storyline, and innovative and simplistic gameplay. A game thats hard to top. Those of you who have played the game know what I mean. Arkham Knight excels City in every way. new gadgets, new moves, oh yeah and the batmobile (seriously, you can't understand how awesome it is until you try it.) The story is just as deep, dark, and engaging as Arkham City, Bottom line is that everyone should have this game in their collection. This is the definitive Batman experience, be The Batman.

    When started the game, I did not really liked and I give up for a few days but tried again and once you get into it, it is a fantastic game with a lot of difference things to do and accomplish (never boring). Even the Riddler challenges provide an change of pace that provides always a fresh thing to do. With a lot of things to do, you have a huge game to play. Not sure if I'm going to play again to try to see the other options on the story but I believe that is needed to get the platinum trophy so not sure. The only reason of not having 5 stars was just because the initial impression but it should be like 4.5 stars.

    Great Batman, Bad Knight

    The Batman Arkham combat you've come to expect was here. It had a good story for the most part too with a few unexpected twists. The Batmobile is the biggest addition and its great for roaming around Gotham, you truly feel like Batman. The villains were solid and had a few good surprises, but the Arkham Knight himself was not good. I won't spoil anything, but the forced tank battles, Cobra Tanks, and the ______ Tank boss fight near the end was especially terrible. Getting that out of the way, the combat, freeroaming, sidequests, and infiltration are top notch as always. A near perfect Batman experience.

    I don't mind Batman, but it's not my favorite. This game is fun even if you're not a fan. I can imagine that this is a must buy for a Batman lover. For the rest of us, this is a solid brawler with a large open world. In typical open world fashion, you're going to be spending a fair amount of time just exploring. Sometimes this feels like a waste of time when you have been searching for another unmarked clue or quest item. It's mostly possible to ignore these side distractions, or do them when you stumble upon them. If your looking for a great looking, smooth playing, open world game, this game is a great choice.

    I have played every Arkham game they have released and I love each game. They are really fun and a great combination of both action and puzzle solving. If you have not yet played an Arkham game this may be a bit heavy on everything you will need to catch up on. I would recommend at least getting Asylum or City to start with. They are both really cheap. Those will get you used to the combat and utility systems for this game. This game introduces the Batmobile to your arsenal and ramps up the action with a ton more enemies to fight. It is a super fun game and I look forward to the second half of the game!

    Batmobile gets BORING!

    This game is beautiful and feels like an upgrade to Arkham City, but there are some drawbacks here. The largest for me was the forced treatment of the Batmobile. Don't get me wrong, it is amazing, but the problem is that it becomes a large part of too many missions. Often you are using the stupid wench to pull some lever or dangle from some wall anchor. The main story is also short. If you focus on it you will beat the game quickly, and wind up with an ending that is less than impressive (and a bunch of mediocre side missions to sift through). I enjoyed myself, but built it up too much form past experience.

    This should be a 5 star game. The story is fantastic, although a bit predictable. The controls are top notch, as are all rocksteady Batman games. The voice acting and graphics are second to none. Why give this game 4 Stars (3.5 if they would let me)? In one word...Batmobile. It's shoe horned in and extremely intrusive. If it where only in small doses then it would be a wonderful addition. Unfortunately Rocksteady decided to shove it down your throat and force you to play with it. Stealth tank battles...in a BATMAN GAME...Really?? The Batmobile sucks the life out of this game time and again. A buy at sub $30

    Fantastic end to Rocksteady's Batman Trilogy

    This was the perfect end to Rocksteady's Batman trilogy. It had so many twist and turns in the story that even a seasoned Batman aficionado will be at the edge of your seat. The graphics are gorgeous, combat is relatively the same but if it ain't broke don't fix it. The one negative that I can say unequivocally is the use of the Batmobile. if it was only used during certain missions then that would have been more than fine, but it's used for a good portion of the main story that at some point it becomes more tiresome than fun. But, even that negative cannot bring down the amount of fun I had playing it.

    A great end to the Arkham series

    So without getting into any spoilers I'll just say this... The game is exactly what you expect out of an Arkham game. The combat is tight, the story is fun, and the side missions and collectibles are numerous. It really delivers on almost every level. My main complaint is the overuse of the batmobile. I was hoping it would just be an option to traverse faster through Gotham but expect to be spending a lot of time solving puzzles and in combat in the batmobile. It's still a great game but this along with a bad launch on pc might make some want to wait to play through the final installment of this series.

    If you love the Arkham series, you'll love this game. It's a fantastic looking game with a huge world and wonderful voice acting - but the Batmobile really doesn't feel like it fits with the world. You're not the dark knight skulking in the shadows, solving crimes, and picking off bad guys one at a time - you're driving around in a tank blowing up other tanks. It suddenly feels way more like the Nolan movies batman than the comics / animated series batman the Arkham series has presented up with so far. That being said, every other aspect of it is so good that I can still highly recommend this game.

    I knew this game was going to be good, that I pre-ordered the game. I never pre-order games, I think the practice is terrible. I have to admit, this game blew my expectations. Graphics are amazing, gameplay is incredible, and the batmobile is so much fun to use. My biggest love of the game is how dark the story is and the dark sense of humor. That's been my criticism of recent superhero movies of late, how their stories are for kids and bland. I'm happy to report that arkham knight story is just as dark or even darker than the dark knight movie. This is a must have game. Game of the year in my book!

    I was expecting alot when I purchased this and I thought it would be the best. Turns out I was wrong. WB bungled parts of the game. My only chief complaint would have to be the gameplay, the batmobile should have been made purely optional - instead it's practically involved in 80% of the game. There are MANY frustrating moments where you are cornered by tanks and keep getting destroyed over and over and over. It's an enormous game and well worth the money, but you will be dissapointed if you believe this is as decent as the prior installments of the Arkham series.

    I've been a loyal Arkham Asylum fan since day 1 (I even wrote my thesis on the game!), I LOVED Arkham City, and despite some frustrations, enjoyed Arkham Origins for the most part. Although I was skeptical in the first few minutes of the game, Arkham Knight has proven to be fantastic so far - there is a good balance of story and action, and the introduction of the Batmobile brings a new dimension to the gameplay without dominating it too much as a shiny new toy. There is a significant amount of DLC available, but I wouldn't bother with the season pass unless you can pick it up on sale.

    My experience so far has been great; no bugs, no hassles. The game looks amazing, and the new features are almost overwhelmingly fun. I'm so glad they've made the batmobile a larger piece of the game. My only (mild) complaint is the batmobile controls. It has a 'battle mode', which you enter by pressing the L2. Typically, L2 is 'brake', for most driving games, when using R2 for acceleration. Instead, brake is assigned to square. Just an odd choice, which many gamers seem to fumble with (see youtube). Obviously, you can adapt with time, and hardly takes away from this game. Best in the series

    Even though the game does have a familiarity with GTO, this is a fantastic new twist on the classic video game franchise of Batman: Arkham Asylum. The batmobile interface is fresh. The tag team fighting is great, and the FEAR factor is a nice option for new takedown moves. The story is very dark and gritty, and yet still mesmerizing at the same time. The batmobile does need some getting used to, especially with chases, and the controls for the gadgets is a little hard to adjust to, since Sony for some reason changed it, but it is a well thought out game. A great end to a classic franchise.

    Unless you have VR this is as close to being the Bat as you can be. The story line is very enjoyable. Even though most batman fans will figure out the end plot quickly. I am spending the time to get all the missions completed to see the full ending. This is taking several months because I cant dedicate more than a few hours per week. When I do get in Its relaxing to be soaring over the city or roaring in the Batmobile in the streets. My only complaint is it is a short story line. You can finish the main game in about 8 hours if you focus strictly on that.

    Going into Arkham Knight, my expectations were high. I thought they would be way too high to be met. Rocksteady pulled through though. This is the best Arkham game to date in my opinion. They built and refined off of everything that made Arkham Asylum and City so amazing. Combat is still as smooth as silk, graphics are outstanding and story is solid. A few minor negatives I have are the length of the main story (too short) and the Batmobile sections get tedious and repetitive. Minor inconveniences that don't take away at all from the 5 star experience you get with Arkham Knight!
