Batman: Arkham Knight

The Sum Of All Fears
by Andrew Reiner
Concept:

The final installment in Rocksteady's "Arkham" series. The story steals the spotlight, diving deep inside of The Dark Knight's mind for a cerebral and terrifying journey


Graphics:

A stunning version of Gotham loaded with tiny details and impressive environmental destruction. The character models are eerily realistic, and are captured beautifully through well-scripted cinematic moments


Sound:

Some of the dialogue is hokey, but the all-star lineup of voice actors mostly delivers. Scarecrow, Arkham Knight, and a few other secret characters shine


Playability:

Every gameplay mechanic is better refined and balanced, leading to the best playing Batman game yet. The Batmobile, unfortunately, is a part of far too many blasé tank encounters


Entertainment:

Outside of a couple of irritations, this is one of the most enjoyable Batman stories I've experienced


Replay:

Moderately High

Batman: Arkham Knight is a narrative juggernaut crammed to capacity with excellent heroes, villains, battles, drama, humor, fan service, and the mother of all plot twists (you won't see this one coming, folks). Arkham Knight is easily the most engaging story in the series - a tale that caters just as much to people seeking a high-octane, rock em sock em superhero war as it does those cerebral storyphiles looking for a jaw-dropping narrative. Outside of one of Batman's wonderful toys having a flat tire for a significant chunk of this experience, Arkham Knight is a welcome assault of comic-book bliss and stunning new-gen visuals.

Most of the videos and information shared prior to Arkham Knight's launch are from its introductory moments and side content. Rocksteady Studios, WB Games, and everyone involved in the project kept the majority of the story under lock and key. Once the secret plot developments take root, just looking at the TV or hearing the game for a few seconds can ruin one of the coolest twists I've seen in a Batman story. It happens within the first hour or two of this adventure, and remains a constant for most of the experience. Through that wild development and others, we see Rocksteady at the height of its game for visual and aural storytelling, going to great lengths to find the best perspective for a shot, whether it's from first-person, third, panned, or through the eyes of a different character.

Without giving away any spoilers (of which there is an exhaustive supply), this chapter picks up nine months after the events of Arkham City, showing how Gotham has healed itself after the death of one of Arkham Asylum's perennial guests. Peace has returned to the city's streets, allowing people to leave the safety of their homes to enjoy the nightlife and arts in boroughs that were once only for people with a death wish or sinister intentions.

That's when Halloween night brings a grim reminder of the past. Scarecrow resurfaces, and he wants to destroy Gotham with a fear toxin. The citizens have until the next morning to leave. Of the 6.3 million people that call Gotham home, not many remain when Batman begins his hunt for Scarecrow. A mysterious character named Arkham Knight complicates matters and unleashes an army against the Caped Crusader. It's a cheesy video game setup that is used to quickly establish an axis and - to a lesser extent - explain why the city's streets are free of ordinary people.

Gotham is a beautifully realized playground for Batman, ranging from a borough filled with century-old architecture to another glowing with a bombardment of Times Square-like advertisements and light. He can glide overhead with ease thanks to an increase in speed and refinement in the controls. He can also take to the streets in his iconic Batmobile, a vehicle that controls remarkably well and is almost as fully featured as any lead character in a game. For roughly three quarters of the game, it's the equivalent of Robin - a sidekick that does some cool stuff, but is mostly annoying. I love how it's used for puzzle solving and specific environment navigation, but its combat applications disappoint for the majority of the game, and they are called upon often.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was a fan of all the arkham games but each game had its drawbacks just like this one does. Don't get me wrong, this is a great game overall but there are parts that will make you wanna stop playing. For example, there are these riddler races you have to beat in a the riddler sidequest. If you are not a completionist this should be no problem. Another part is when you are fighting the villain arkham knight and you have to use the batmobile to destroy some large tanks it is difficult. But the most annoying part is towards the end when you are fighting the arkham knight and you have to use the batombile to race around to defeat him and you can't progress through the story until you do. I almost rage quit and i have never wanted to rage quit in any other arkham games other than origins when you are fighting the final boss. Other than that, its a good game with lots of game contents and i reccomend it if you are a fan of the arkham series

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bateman is back again I was a Bateman fan til Arkham Origins. I thought I will try this one. This the first time in a Bateman game you can drive and use the Batmobile. Not a easy game. But it is still fun. To fly Arkham and beat up all those dirty thugs. Haha. So this game is pretty fun. Check it out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING GAME! I absolutely enjoyed this game. I spent a whole night playing this game and I love it! I was so addicted to it, until I completed it. I really wish the story could be longer because it was so much fun! Now that I finished it there is nothing left to do. But still an amazing game! Can't wait to play Batman Return to Arkham.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Night Is Darkest, Just Before The Dawn The game looks and runs incredible on PS4, I cannot say the same for PC, however I am reviewing the game on PS4. From the opening scene you know your in for a treat. The games colors are dark and dreary, but it looks like Gotham City. The game play is fluid and is the best in any Batman game thus far. The voice acting is also masterful, Kevin Conroy kills it as Batman once again. It may seem like this game has nothing wrong with it, but it does, The bat mobile tank sections are fun, just overused. The bat mobile overstays it's welcome, as it feels like 40% of the game is spent in it. I wish they were few and far between, so the player felt rewarded when it came to the bat mobile. The Riddler challenges are also awful once again, collect every trophy to take on the Riddler, seems like it'd be fun, but there are over 120 of them, hidden along the game. Fun game overall, but has problems, check this game out. 8/10

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing graphics,gameplay,and DLC.But... The story kind of gave away the Arkham Knights identity.But,the graphics were absolutely amazing!The gameplay had so much improvement since the last games,you can take down enemies really fast with fear takedowns.This is a game I would recommend to hardcore gamers because there are many hard parts,especially when fighting the Arkham Knight.So,even tho this isn't the best game ever,I still think you guys should get this game.There are also 3 other games in the series.Batman:Arkham Asylum, Batman:Arkham City,and Batman:Arkham Origins.They are all amazing games and asylum and city are getting remastered this summer for PS4 and XBOX ONE.
