”IN AN ERA OF HAND-HOLDING, ARKHAM KNIGHT IS REVOLUTIONARY” - [Polygon]
”Batman: Arkham Knight is an impressive game on almost every level, with non-stop variety and great action. RT” - [IGN]
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City. Be The Batman.
The Bat is back! Batman: Arkham Knight arrives as one of the top PC games of the summer! The journey that started with Batman: Arkham Asylum and continued through Batman: Arkham City approaches an epic finale as the Caped Crusader faces off against The Scarecrow, Penguin, Harley Quinn, and the eponymous, mysterious Arkham Knight himself. But this time, Batman won't be fighting alone.
We're excited to team up with the likes of Azrael, Oracle, and Nightwing but perhaps most thrillingly of all, now we get to take the Batmobile for a spin! We can't wait to get behind the wheel and start chasing down thugs on Gotham's streets, before transforming into a bat-tastic tank and unleashing some serious explosive justice. Arkham Knight is shaping up to be the most ambitious game Rocksteady have attempted, and it has all of the tools to live up to the hype.
Solid game plagued with performance problemsdacimvrl | Dec. 4, 2015 | See all dacimvrl's reviews »
This is indeed a solid game with solid story and great gameplay, but unfortunately, the PC version of the game screams console port. To be fair, Rock Steady did not do this port themselves, instead the PC porting process was outsourced to a 3rd party developer, which turned out to be nothing short of a disaster and got taken off the shelves. Fast forward a couple of months, now, the game is back in stock with several performance patches and whatnot, but to be honest, the game is still filled to the brim with bugs and glitches that just detracts from the immersion. You can't help but wonder what the WB Games actually spent on QAing the game.

Ok, so I pre-purchased this game and played about 20 hours before the patch until I couldn't take it anymore. The glitches and lip sync issues were enough to make me quit cold-turkey. Then, the patch came out. I finally decided to try it again and my love for this series was rejuvenated. Unfortunately, the release issues were enough to deter many people and give them (and others) a jaded opinion of the game - even after the patch. I, however, loved it and I plan to continue playing through NG+ and all of the DLC. The surprising amount of villains in this game is wonderful, by the way and the story is absolutely amazing!! I am a huge Kevin Conroy (as Batman) and Mark Hamill (as Joker) fan since Batman the Animated Series was my favorite show growing up. If you are too, ignore all the "negative nellies" that plague the reviews and find out for yourself how FREAKIN' GREAT this game really is. Trust this anonymous internet reviewer.
Great Game! Incredible Graphics, even better than before.jmestrella89 | Nov. 24, 2015 | See all jmestrella89's reviews »
Graphics are top notch. Even on Medium, which I needed for it to work without lagging, they looked amazing. Game plays a lot like the old ones. Controls are switched up a little to make room for new gadgets. The Batmobile is awesome and a sweet new addition. The amount of missions with it can be distracting though. I did like the new system of optional gameplay. Upgrades have been revamped, but aren't totally unfamiliar. Storyline was little predictable if you're a big Batman fan in general. Terrific ending. Honestly, worth every penny.

I can safely say, this is the best Batman game I have ever played. Of course, others may disagree. It works amazingly and surprisingly well on my PC, but here and there, there's a few lag, but it's never often and long. I definitely recommend this to everyone who is a Batman fan, and even those who aren't into Batman but enjoy storyline. My favorite parts of this game are the storyline, the Riddler's riddles and challenges, and many other missions. Graphics are also amazing. Some things that could be worked on is fighting; sometimes is absolutely pointless, sometimes it's a bit hard if you don't have skill or have forgotten what his gadgets can do. All in all, this is a very fun game, definitely recommend, long gameplay, and a secret ending if you complete all the missions.

Never before has a game made you feel like Dark Knight the way Arkham Knight does. Rocksteady has crafted a universe which perfectly blends both the comic universe and the Nolan film universe. The story is a constant thrill ride and becomes one of the Best Batman stories ever told. While the Batmobile can force you to use it a little to often, it never felt broken and was still fun to use. Rocksteady again brings back the fantastic freeflow combat the series is known for to truly make you feel like you're taking down the villains who infest Gotham. The biggest shortcomings are the boss battles which in previous games had you control Batman and offered a nice variety of ways to take down enemies, this game resorts to having you take them down using the batmobile which really ruined at least two boss encounters in the game which would have been fantastic if you could have done them using Batman himself instead of his super tank. Overall Arkham Knight is a fantastic game and deserves to be put up there with the best of Batmans lore.
