    Batman on Xbox One is extremely FUN!

    Posted .

    Batman Arkham Knight is a terrific game and a delight to my collection. Rated M,, for the brutal violence, strong / coarse language and any other carnal behavior they could fit into this game without going too far. The game controls are easy to learn. The missions are adequately challenging. Overall this is exactly what one might expect from the Dark Arkham Knight on a next generation gaming platform. The graphics, at least the finishers, are to die for (yeah I went there). If you like Batman, Action- Adventure games with a open environments, challenging missions that are easily playable with a bit of naughty language and some brutal villain dispatching. You will really enjoy this game. I've had continuous play for hours and I'm not yet done. it more than most as I was the lucky man who bought it while it was advertised for Best Buy's Deal of the Day. Game on, Gamer!

    Best Batman Game Ever!

    Where Do I Start? "Open" World, Story...Its A Freaking Rocksteady Batman Game. His Tank, Weapons, Team Ups... Its All Great. I Haven't Finished It Yet But Read There Were Multiple Endings...Yes Please. Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman...Come On! $60 (Well I Had A Few Coups) And I Am A Rewards Card Member So It Was A Bit Cheaper. But You Can Easily Drop Some Major Gaming Time Into This, So It Is Definitely Worth $60.

    This game is simply beautiful. The gameplay is amazing. Batmobile takes a while to get used to but I suggest changing the Mode to 'Toggle' when you get the option to do so. The characters are the best I've seen in a batman game. Even the side missions are fun and the voice acting is all around fantastic.

    Batman: Arkham Knight ends the story with a bang!

    Posted .

    Batman: Arkham Knight is the last in the Batman series of games (that have totally revised superhero gaming). It is well-written, with mostly awesome voice acting (a few choices seem odd, like Commissioner Gordon), amazing graphics, and a ton of action. In the game, the Scarecrow has returned and Gotham City must evacuate because Scarecrow is going to release a horrifying new version of his fear gas. But Scarecrow has a partner in "The Arkham Knight," who looks like a mechanized version of Batman. And the Knight wants Batman dead, while Scarecrow just wants to drive Batman mad with fear and torture him with the destruction of Gotham City. Almost all of Gotham City's roster of villains make major or minor appearances. The same goes for Batman's allies. The biggest addition to this final game in the series is the ability to drive the Batmobile through the streets of Gotham City. Not only is the Batmobile good for racing through the streets to chase down evildoers in cars, it also has a tank mode with some pretty serious weaponry. Overall, Batman Arkham Knight has everything most players could want in a new-gen video game. And if you spring for the season pass, you'll also get downloadable adventures for other characters. I've gotten a DLC adventure for Batgirl already. And the Harley Quinn DLC adventure shipped with the first wave of Arkham Knight that went to Best Buy.

    Best in the Batman series

    I had high expectations for this game with all the hype that it was given, but I have to admit that I skeptical. The previous Batman games in the Arkham collection were mediocre to say the least. Of course all of the previous games were on the xbox 360, which I liked but does not compare to the xbox one in almost every category. I was afraid that this Batman game would be much like the previous ones, in that you spend the majority of the game in fight scenes, blindly tapping the buttons as fast as you can hoping to defeat the enemy. I find this style of game boring and redundant. However Batman: Arkham Knight is a different story. The fight scenes are drastically improved with a specific fight moves that makes the fighting more controllable and actually enjoyable. But that is not even in my top five improvements with this installment of the Batman series. The most obvious difference is the Mature rating. This is a much darker and violent version of Batman ever seen on video game consoles (which I personally love). It really gives you the feeling of the newer movies The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Another obvious difference is that this game has new makers from the previous games. The maker of this game also gave us Grand Theft Auto, and you can tell. It has the feeling of Grand Theft Auto in that it is an open world with numerous missions that are fun and challenging while being different from each other. The Batmobile, gadgets, hacking devices, and detective mode are all features that put the game above average. I was genuinely surprised by this game. It is like Grand Theft Auto, Assassin's Creed, and Watch Dogs all rolled into one with a Batman theme. It is totally worth checking out if you love Batman, or even if you just love good video games.

    Another good Batman Arkham installment

    What can I say that has not been said by the pro reviewers? My take aways. This is a good game in the franchise. I think Arkham City is the best but this is still worthy. The Batmobile mechanics are well done and integrate well tho I feel it is leaned on too heavily. It feels like Batman can't tie his shoe without the Batmobile.The tank battles I felt were fun but I concur it feels like a gimmick and not something I would see in a Batman setting. The story I felt was good. Confusing but didn't get too bothered if I didn't follow it all. A note on DLC's. The Batgirl Matter of Family and Season of Infamy were great. The other short character specific adventures like Catwoman's revenge and the like while good were too short for what they are. Batmobile skins and character skins didn't do much for me. The race tracks were okay. The challenge maps just don't do it for me. The cost of the Batgirl and SOI DLC's are such that if you can, buy the season pass. Best value and it has come down to half of its initial launch price and you can sometimes find it cheaper than that. I got the base game and season pass both on sale. Sure, this game is old news now but is a must have for your library. And none of the PC bugs or performance issues on console.

    Batman's Great Fear? .. Chuck Norris

    The batmobile is an excellent additional to the game as a visual, mechanic and character in its own right. It feels like a batmobile should providing both overwhelming firepower and chocked full of so many gadgets James bond himself would be jealous. The non-find riddler challenges are great and I like the addition of the new combo challenges and races. That being said I the series has continued to decrease the amount of actual riddles to solve since Arkham Asylum using the find the question mark instead. This feels kinds cheap and the mechanic was tired back in GTAIII. I have found all the packages I ever want to find, no more thank you. Mark Hamil does an excellent voice acting job, really nailing the tone of his character. Sadly Kevin Conroy (Batman) seems to be calling it in at several points. This woodedness is accentuated by the times he does the voice well. The quest selection process is very nice and from an open world perspective it is done very well. The player is able to choose what they wish to do and not be pestered by an annoying NPC ever 5 minutes (thank you my GTA IV "friends"). Oddly enough the overall game feels smaller though both in terms of raw geography as well as the scope of the missions. The end verdict, play it now and play it often.

    Best of the Batman series

    Batman: Arkham Knight is hands down the best of the Batman series. I will say it has a bit of a learning curve as it pulls all the best aspects from the previous titles and pushes them even further. The hand to hand combat seems very complex at first but gets easier as you progress - and the game does a good job of easing you into new moves. A lot of other people don't really like the Batmobile/Tank side of things, but I really did. It's nice to switch things up from gliding around the city and solving riddles on foot to blasting other vehicles in the Batmobile. There are tons of riddles to solve, characters to unlock, small side quests and surprises. I'm at about 80% finished and have loved the game, don't really want it to end. Go buy it.

    The finale to the Arkham series doesn't disappoint

    Be the Batman! The story's structure does give you a sense of being Batman. You're the Dark Knight Detective. It's a game with puzzles in addition to the melee combat. Without giving away spoiler details, the plot involves Scarecrow endangering a ton of people. Batman answers the call to defend his city. They also add a good deal of Batman villans but I haven't seen them all yet. The visuals are stunning. You can see the rain rolling off Batman's suit and his cape as he glides through the sky. The combat mechanics are fun. You have a combo meter that you build up to do more cooler, complex moves. The game mixes fast, fluid combat with slow motion to capture some painful moments for the bad guys. The Batmobile is a beast. It can be hard to drive at times but it's interesting how the developers have made it a part of the game. There are some racing / timed missions along with vehicle combat. As you progress through the game's variety of missions, you unlock upgrades that impact your gadgets, Batsuit, combat moves, and the Batmobile. Voice acting is top notch. Kevin Conroy from the animated series returns to voice Batman along with Mark Hamill as the Joker. I'm only about 23% into the game according to my saves, but so far I'm having a blast!

    Great ending. Bad final game to the Arkham series

    Posted .

    Batman: Arkham Knight is truly a great story and end to the cape crusader. But it also truly lacks in content and variety to the last two arkham games of the saga. Reason for saying this is that once you beat the story and get the real ending there is really nothing else in the game that brings you back to want more. Sure there are AR challenges but it's not the same as a challenge map where you can fight and beat records without limits. Unfortunately this game has no challenge maps and are replaced by a dumbed down version of it known as AR challenges. Really what AR challenges are is a simulation of certain combat situations. Sounds similar to a regular a challenge map only the difference is it's not as fun and is very short. The only way to obtain regular challenge maps is buying the season pass which is way over priced for 40 dollars. Another thing that is very dissapointing and at the same time awesome is the Batmobile. Why the Batmobile because the game actually forces you to use the Batmobile alot in the main storyline missions and lots of Riddler/side quests as well. Its very awesome to use but when the game abruptly wants you to use the Batmobile every 2-3 missions and use again on most Riddler/side quests it gets very annoying quickly. Finally the last but not least dissapointing key element to the game is the boss battles. SPOILER ALERT! After I beat the end of Arkham Knight but before I obtained the true ending I had a side quest that if I obtained 90% of its requirements I would go and face DeathStroke. By the time I bested him in what I thought was the first part of the battle I hoped for Batman and him to go at it fist to fist. Well no they don't and in the end of that battle I felt extremely dissatisfied and all you do when DeathStroke is out cold is you put him in the Batmobile and take him to GCPD. Almost every boss battle is like this. In the end the game was overall satisfying and fun. Would I recommend this game at full retail price....no but for 40 dollars and under yes.

    Another Fantastic Game

    Batman: Arkham Knight has been an amazing game to play. The gameplay was improved from Arkham City and makes it even more fun to play. Additionally, the story is fantastic, including many of the major characters without seeming gimmicky. Side quests also offer "intel" which shows you where they occur if you can't find the event locations by exploring. The batmobile plays a major part in this game. While the mechanics of the batmobile are amazing and it's very natural to control it, I felt that it was over-emphasized just a bit much. The emphasis wasn't anything distracting/detracting from the story, I would have personally preferred a lighter showing from it. There are a few bugs in the game, most notably one where enemies can get stuck inside of walls or other objects during fights. This has been mostly comical for me though, and has resulted in only minor setbacks since the game saves very frequently. My game also froze/crashed twice during play, which again, resulted in only a minor inconvenience due to the frequency of checkpoint saves. Overall, a fantastic game. I've been greatly pleased.

    Great all around open world game!

    Batman arkham knight is an awesome game that's open world where you can even drive the batmobile around (which is one of the best parts) and you can upgrade the batmobile throught the game and batman himself with his combat moves and gadget skill! Now if you have played the last couple of batman games then once you finish the game the credits happen and they show pictures of all of the old games/story missions. So if you love batman and want to drive his vehicle then I highly recommend this game! The worst part of this game is the Riddler trophies because to be able to get a 100% and complete the full knightfall protocol you have to find all of the Riddler trophies, I believe their is 240 something trophies. So if you want the full game experience then collect the Riddler trophies exactly when you see them/locate them on the map! I hope this review helped and enjoy being the Batman!

    Great ending to a phenomenal series.

    To me, this one is the best of the series. The M rating might scare away the younger teenage audience (well, maybe more so their parents), but it's still alittle bit more like a T rated game. It has a few more mature moments, but it's nothing that kids who play call of duty or halo couldn't handle. Also, it's not much worse than the Dark Knight movie trilogy. But back to the game: the cinematics are incredible. The gameplay is loads of fun and will take more than just a day or two to complete because there's a lot to do. Being able to use the Batmobile is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. And the story is pretty incredible, especially for fans of the comics and those that know of some of the better Batman stories, such as Death in the Family and The Killing Joke. As an added bonus, you can achieve multiple endings to the game depending on how much of it you complete. I could go on, but I would end up spoiling the game. It's definitely worth the buy and is an awesome ending to Rocksteady's incredible version of the world of Batman.

    This game is a lot of fun. Has great graphics. It is dark, and I would not let my young kids watch or play the game. There is a story line to the game that is interesting. And plenty of challenges that you need to accomplish in order to move forward in the game. My latest challenge is to complete a driving obstacle game within a time limit. It's a somewhat circular tracks that progressive gets more difficult. The good thing is that failure doesn't force you to restart the whole challenge from the beginning. I noticed the game has in-game purchases available to change the skin of batman's outfit and the batmobile. Some are free and others are for a charge. There are other options available for purchase, but I'm not one willing to spend more money on an already expensive game. I'll finish the game first and then see if it is worth purchasing add-ons. Overall, I'm enjoying the game a lot and glad it doesn't have the problems that the PC version reported has.

    The ultimate batman experience

    Arkham Knight is the culmination of Rocksteady's series of Batman simulators over the years. The move to next gen only has done wonders for the game-- the graphics are phenomenal, and you can move through the huge world (5x the size of city/origins at least) without any loading times or stutters. The narrative is incredible and provides perfect closure to the series. The batmobile is a great new addition, however my only slight criticism of the game would be that some sequences become overly reliant on using the batmobile as a mechanic-- I would have preferred it to be a more nuanced and balanced part of Batman's arsenal, like his other gadgets. The brawler system remains the same and as addictive as ever, with new combos and moves that make it more satisfying than it's ever been. I can't recommend this game highly enough to both Batman fans and people new to the series-- this game will be remembered as a landmark title and the perfect conclusion to Rocksteady's trilogy.
