”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.
First, let me say, this is an awesome game. The graphics are top notch and the gameplay usually pretty fun. I say usually because this game suffers from what many games do, or at least in my opinion. An annoying amount of collectibles to find. And while that may not sound too bad, unlike other games that don't punish you for not getting them all, this game does. To get the true ending of this game, you must collect every single Riddler Trophy which took me longer than the rest of the game itself. No collectible stuff should do this, it should not be a part of the main game factoring in on what kind of ending you get. That said, this is stiff a fun game and worth buying, just be prepared to sink some time in and get some headaches getting all the trophies unless you are just that good.
Probably the best game in the series, top graphics, the story is pretty good, batmobile and an open city where you can do almost everything. The issues and bugs that were present when this game was released are all gone. Its a pretty decent game without all those issues. Although keyboard controls can be made more comfortable.
I've recently just completed Arkham Knight on PC and can say that most of the issues that were there on launch aren't there anymore. I had no problems running the game at all. Something I liked about this game is that they added the Batmobile as a drivable vehicle. The things they make you do with it are interesting and its a nice change from having to glide everywhere. The story of Arkham Knight is well done and leaves you wanting more. I recommend buying the premium edition because it gives you all the DLC but do know that the story DLCs aren't very long.
Many of the worst issues in the original release of this game have been resolved, but if it came out as-is today I would still say the port is pretty disappointing. Many people who couldn't play the game at all before can get a playable framerate now, but even on a very high end system the frame pacing is very poor and results in a stuttery experience. The texture loading issues that plagued the game on release are gone, but you still see shockingly low resolution textures during almost any cut scene. Image quality is all over the board, but is improved quite a bit by turning off AA, CA, and film grain effects. Speaking of effects, there seems to be a bug that scales the intensity of post-processing effects with the screen resolution the game renders at. The most obviously visible occurance of this bug is when lens flares are rendered. In 1080p, lens flares look more or less as they should. At 1440p you'd think Batman just had LASIK surgery because looking at a street light produces a double or triple lens flare corona that makes it very difficult to see what is going on. Considering the whole game takes place at night and there are more lens flares than a JJ Abrams movie this bug can get pretty irritating. If you're a huge batman fan and you've been waiting to play this game, I'd say it is definitely playable now.
At last, the game is fully playable and enjoyable. I recommend to the fans of the Arkham series to play it. Arkham Knight is not that great honestly, but it's decent. Story part, Batmobile - kinda mediocre. Visually - good. Gameplay itself is somewhat from 6 to 8 out of 10, Assassin's Creed style elements really not needed tbh.
