    Good batman game

    Lots of different elements and lots of things to do as Batman. The driving sequences and rambler fights do get a little annoying at times and the reliance on the bat mobile can be a little heavy. But the fights, exploration is what you are used to from previous installations.

    I really like the graphics. I like all the fighting scenes but however I don't like the fact that all the fighting sciences seem to be the same combos.

    Enjoyed game tremendously. Driving the batmobile took awhile to get under control but the fights were a bit easy at times.

    Sad to see this be Batmans last fight from Rocksteady games, but they ended it well. The same Batman you loved in the other two games, but with plenty of new tricks and a huge city to explore.

    If you like the other Arkham games at all, I recommend it wholeheartedly. The batmobile was not so fun at first, but once you get the hang of controls, it's actually very fun to drive. I recommend changing the controls once you get to GCPD so you don't have to hold the 'battle mode' button the entire time you are fighting baddies or doing tight maneuvers.

    Arkham Knight is the narrative successor to Arkham City, picking up where the story left off with Joker's demise. Arkham Knight is not a revolution, but a solid evolution of its predecessors as it adds more features to an already strong franchise. You fight numerous supervillains from the Batman franchise while contending with the mysterious new villain the Arkham Knight (who is not Batman).

    I've always liked the Batman games. It's fun trying to get the Riddler trophies and in this game they are more challenging than in previous releases. I gave it 4 stars because the batmobile drone fights became repetitous

    Like the title says, I got the game but because it came with the gunmetal silver batman edition ps4, it's a good game but its just too long of a game for me and also its just not my type. I'm sure others enjoy these kind of games, I personally like fighting type games like the injustice Gods among us ultimate edition game, which still has batman in it ;) and other fighting games like street fighter, tekken and racing games ect. Over all if you like these kind of games go for it, you will have fun with it.

    This is a great game. The batmobIle is a great addition, and it's nice to start with the gadgets from the last game. I am disappointed that, though the game has multiple playable characters with unique fighting styles, there is still no two player option.

    I can often get bored with fighting games like this but not this time. The graphics are awesome and the story line is intriguing. Plus I got to play as cat woman, how cool is that?

    This has the best of everything, puzzle solving, full out fighting, upgrading your batman and vehicle. The game is non stop action and a blast to play. Trying to get 100% of the game will be very challenging compared to the previous titles but well worth it. This is a game you dont want to miss having in your collection!

    Its another solid entry in the series, but the series feels too long in the tooth. Its essentially the same as the others but it looks prettier. Fighting the same guys, in the same style, in the same setting is getting old. Or maybe Im just tired of batman always fighting the same villians in the same city

    They have done it once again and have made a truly amazing Batman game. This game makes you feel like you are the Caped Crusader himself, fighting to save Gotham. The fighting controls are intuitive and everything feels natural. Any DC comic gamer fan must have!

    This was an overall good game in my opinion. I love the combat style that all the Batman games bring. The only negative to this game was the constant tank fights. Those got really repetitive. It's worth a buy now due to the low price.

    Let's get some negatives out of the way: The Batmobile can be clumsy and you may tire of frequent tank battles. Read any Batman comic and you already know the story. The gritty and grusome has be dialed up and its treatment of women suck. But I couldn't stop playing the game. Every street fight, every Riddler trophy, every bank robbery called out to keep playing and I did. This feels like a must have, even more if you like Arkham City.

    I love it! Joker scenes and dialogue are very funny. Wide variety of combat, weapon and vehicle upgrades. Nice consistent performance is very welcoming. One nitpick it that sometimes the fights in the Batmobile can be too long and it can get boring. But I like driving around in the city with it.

    Arkham Knight took what was great about the previous Arkham Games and ramped up the action with an expansive environment and some great new toys. I've read reviews of people complaining about the Batmobile so here's the gist if you don't like mech combat games like Armored Core you're probably not going to like how much the game includes Batmobile action. However if you like stealth games, action combo fighting, puzzle solving and Mech combat, not to mention BATMAN you're going to love this game. As a fan of the previous titles in the Arkham series particularly developed by Rocksteady I had a blast playing through this game. Chosing between attacking in stealth, head on or even with the batmobile the choices gave the action a great deal of versatility. Occasional being able to switch between characters like Robin, Knightwing and Catwoman provided even more dynamic features. Car chases were intense and really cinematic, and one of my favorite parts of this game. There's so much action and ways in which to attack the problems that the experience is really up to the gamer to develop.

    I didn't play any of the previous 2 games, but I did have to catch up story wise via Youtube. Onto the game. The fighting itself is quite repetitive and not all that challenging, even on hard. However, the cinematics, cool factor, and the graphics are top notch. The game itself isn't too long and has some variety (if not inane). The main gameplay is the same combat and upgrades are somewhat pointless. I did a 95% completion of the game, I refused to do the 200 riddler trophy just to get full completion. Whoever programmed that must be a masochist himself. Either way, the game is quite nice and gates itself well and really shows off the power of the PS4. I think I annoyed my significant other repeatedly saying "I am batman". Highly recommended as a can't miss game.

    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.

    This is how it ends... Though I didn't like it.

    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'll 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'dn'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.
