By far this is the one true ultimate Batman experience of all Batman games ever produced.
Once again game developer, Rocksteady, does it all and does not fail to impress. There is something about this final instalment of the Batman series that makes it the most remarkable sequel in the instalment. Whether it is that the sequel gets more personal from Batman’s point of view or that Scarecrow – once again – releases his fear gas to induce hallucinations; Arkham Knight stays true to its one sole purpose – giving players the much deserved adrenaline rush.
As soon as you start the game you are hit with a major plot twist. An unexpected yet quite effective action packed gameplay backed with a strong story line – a representation of everything well planned and executed in the game. Perhaps this could just be the one true, genuine as well as mysterious in-play mission that we’ve seen in any action packed adventurous series.
Looks like Rocksteady developers did their homework because the predator stealth, free-flowing combat and open world swift traversal that is the heart and soul of Batman, has never been better than in the Arkham Knight. You will instantly notice the stealth, swiftness, strength and wits as you take on the character of the Knight to fight your constantly changing enemies. Guess what? You can now glide much faster and much higher and the critics are cheering about it.
One great addition is the Batmobile. Seriously how did we not notice this in the previous installments? The good thing is that it does not fall short of expectations. The Batmobile is well integrated into gameplay and as usual it is used by Mr. Dark Knight himself to investigate, solve puzzles and engage in combat. As if that’s not enough, the creators were kind enough to give us the full package in the car. We strongly feel that they borrowed notes from Need for Speed creators especially when it comes to Pursuit mode and drifting mode of this fine work of art or B-art-mobile; get it?
Without any doubt Arkham Knight’s world is so much greater than Arkham City. The roads are much wider and the corners are much rounder – a great upgrade I might add since the Batmobile can now be accommodated easily. One shortcoming is that we are deprived of opportunities for spontaneous heroics while roaming the streets of Gotham but that is more than made up for by the intense exciting and dramatic gameplay that beats down almost any game currently in the market.
