Top customer reviews
For a certain kind of player this game would be great, but I think the game suffers from two very big problems, possible three, but I'll get to that.
Problem #1: the car/tank/thing. So the Batmobile is iconic, no doubt and at first the driving mechanic is pretty sweet, but then...well it turns into a gimmick, and not a very good one at that. Three of the boss battles that should have been epic hand to hand brawls like then the previous Arkham games are reduced to little more than aggravating races and/or a game of Battle Tanks. Now don't get me wrong a game of Battle Tanks is great, but not in my Batman game. Sorry big fail.
Problem #2: the setting is far, far too big. Now for many this isn't a problem, and with the games that are out these days with massive open world maps the map of Batman does seem a bit quaint in comparison. But I don't play these games for sprawling maps, I play for the story, for the iconic characters. Now is Gotham's three islands a great set piece, absolutely, but there are to many things here that fall under problem #1. All the car stuff gets repetitive and either boring or infuriating, and I don't want to play a game that makes me mad! I want to have fun in this big Batman world.
Problem #3: The main story. I'm sorry but anyone who knows anything about Batman's lore knows who the Arkham Knight is from his first line of dialog. The cut scenes get to be overwhelming or in some cases very underwhelming. Now don't get me wrong, it's a big world so there's a lot of stuff to do and many, many bad guys to go after. The story is predictable, some of the character elements were done well, and Mark Hamill's Joker has never been better acted. The voices and the look of the game are very solid, but in the end I actually preferred all the character based side missions as apposed to the main story. The side stories, including the DLC are great, but the main story isn't really something I enjoy. One exception to the side missions...the Riddler, my god, the Riddler missions... The first game was great, the second and third games were great, but this one...dear lord there are so many things to do with this green-wearing goofball and that mission, above and beyond all others is why once I finished the game, even though there is a new game + feature, I put it on the shelf and said never again. It's just not worth replaying.
In my humble if long-winded opinion, a game should be fun to pick up and play and you should be able to complete missions with relative ease, nothing that will make you grind you teeth like some of these missions will. And again much of it boils back to problem #1. I heard a rumor they were going to make a new game, if that is true I hope they do not include the Batmobile and get back to something that looks a little more like the first three games as far as story. And maybe just for one game either remove the Riddler or have him be the main bad guy, since his stuff is always the thing you have to finish last anyway.
My only other real complaint about the game is the lack of unique defined boss battles. It's something that the previous games hold over this installment and they are missed. There are only two situations in this game that I would define as boss battles. One of those require some grinding to get, which can turn a lot of people off to it. The other, of course, requires using the Batmobile, so it's not really a traditional fight just requires some decent driving skills. There are arguments to be made for other segments that could possibly pass for bosses but I believe that's stretching it, especially when compared to previous games in the series. Hopefully the DLC villains can rectify this problem.
Now onto the positives. The game does have a good story and a fairly satisfying ending. The Arkham Knight's identity isn't a big reveal for anyone that has a passing knowledge of Batman lore. But, he was still a good villain in my eyes. Scarecrow is a great villain and I wish there were more interactions with him other than basically hearing him over a loudspeaker. Still the way his tactics are used were pretty cool. I can't really go into much detail without spoiling anything but i'll just say I liked what Scarecrow did during the game. One segment in particular towards the end of the game that has become one of my absolute favorite sequences in a video game ever. Graphics are great. Not the best i've seen on the system but still a very nice game to look at. I like the implementation of having your sidekicks help you in certain situations making some of the combat sequences very fun and left me wanting more. Keeping with the combat, it's just as fun as ever. The Arkham series from the beginning has set a standard on a basically perfect combat system that has gotten better with each installment. It's a system that's fairly easy to pick up and play with but mastering it is truly rewarding. The addition of being able to attack someone while grounded is a welcome addition as well as being able to take a thug's melee weapons and use it against them is also great. There are new gadgets that are fun to use and the Batmobile takedowns are also pretty cool.
It would be difficult to go into other things that I enjoyed without spoiling some pretty big parts of the story and some surprises so i'll just wrap this up. Overall, the game was enjoyable. My favorite in the series is still Arkham City but this is a worthy addition. It has it's low points for sure, but it also has plenty of positives. If you're a fan of the previous games, I can recommend this one as well. If not, then this game is highly unlikely to change your mind. If you're looking to jump into this series for the first time, then this isn't the best starting point for obvious reasons.
