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