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.

This game had a terrible launch on PC as a shoddy port, but thankfully it is now 100% playable. The graphics are absolutely stunning, truly worthy of the description "next-gen" especially if your PC can handle the NVIDIA PhysX stuff. Story-wise I prefer this game to Arkham City due to its much more psychological take on the Batman, but some might disagree. The gameplay has been improved to a great standard by Rocksteady. There are far more options available during predator and combat encounters yet none feel tacked on or half-baked, making said encounters an absolute blast. A more contentious aspect of the game is the Batmobile. Whether you feel it's annoying could be personal preference but I liked it. Roaming the streets in the air and on the road were both fun; it helps that the streets were clearly designed to accommodate the Batmobile. Also, while the Batmobile's battle sections could get a bit samey, I never felt particularly annoyed. For me, Rocksteady accomplished their goal of "completing the Batman fantasy" with the Batmobile. [It's worth noting that there were reports the car is difficult to handle with precision. This is partly true, but I circumvented this by using Battle-Mode which provides fine control over the car.] While this game certainly isn't perfect (there's a surprising lack of boss battles), it is in my opinion the best Batman game around and a fantastic send-off to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy. Never before have the words "Be The Batman" been more representative of a game.
This is the best game out of the Rocksteady trilogy. Yes, it had a rocky start on PC. However, after all of the fixes it's an amazing game. If you happen to be a big time Batman fan, like myself, the story is incredibly predictable. However, it's still a blast and definitely worth picking up. The free flow system has never been better. The visuals have never been more stunning. The Batmobile is a blast, even if the tank battles can become a bit tedious. The open world is dense in terms of horizontal landscape as well as vertical scale. For any Batman fan or a lover of open world action games, I'd absolutely recommend this game.
This game is awesome, there always drama, action even if you just driving around on the batmobile. The game is a bit short, however, the gameplay has a lot of action as you expect from batman, I love driving on the batmobile, and jumping around rooftops, or flying. I did play this game 3 months after the lunch, so I didn't notice much of the issues people were having.
By now everyone knows about the challenges of the PC version, but in the current state (and my PC personally never experiencing issues with the game) I thought it was overall pretty good. Engine wise this is the apex of the series, however story wise I liked Arkham City's twists better. When you just want to get lost and become Batman, there's no better game than than Arkham Knight.
- Huge island which looks simply stunning. Its bustling, detailed and just brilliant. - Value for money, a good long main story with lots of good side missions keeping you busy and spoilt for choice. - Storyline, I love the Arkham games and this one ties it up nicely. Couldn't wait to find out who was the Arkham Knight! - Once again, awesome use of the fighting mechanics (Not dated imo), lots of gadgets and environmental kills. - More difficult, I thought this one was harder and required a thoughtful use of the environment and the gadgets you have to hand. - Batmobile, lots of people found this part of gameplay flat. Whilst it heavy in quantity, I thought it broke gameplay up nicely. Driving feels insane, love destroying things in my path. If you upgrade wisely then you can be a real menace. CONS: - Its no secret this game has struggled with issues. Everyone's had them, whilst I didn't have them as bad, the game was still choppy in places and crashed on a couple of occasions. At the price you can buy this game now, I wouldn't see this as an issue. - Some side missions are longer then they need to be. Why carry out the same process multiple times? Just feels like a ploy to lengthen the game.
