The finale of the four part Batman Arkham "trilogy" is finally here, and does it conclude the series well? Lets find out.
story of Batman's most recent adventure, opens up with the sinister
return of Scarecrow, a villain that hasn't been seen since Killer
Croc dragged him down into the sewers back during Arkham Asylum, so its
been a while since this particular villain has been seen and it seems
he's be using the time he's been away to become one of the best comic
book villain to ever be in a video game, so this game sees Scarecrow
team up with the unknown, mysterious, militaristic, Arkham Knight, who
has a hatred for Batman unlike any other villain.
part of Scarecrows plan starts with him scaring off the citizens
of Gotham and leaving the thugs and crooks of Gotham to rule, with a
scattering of other villains around to keep Batman busy, including but
not limited to, Two Face, Riddler, Penguin, Poison Ivy, and several more
lesser known one, including one who's first appearance haunts me even
know, you'll know him when you see him, but the game isn't
just villains, Batman has a few friends he can count on, including a few
who will team up with him, utilizing one of the greatest new features.
Tag Team Takedown.
Another new feature of this game is the
Batmobile, a great way for Batman to move around the abandoned streets
of Gotham, although doing that smoothly may be a bit of a challenge,
yeah the controls aren't the smoothest, but the Batmobile is near
perfect in battle mode, armed with a 60mm cannon, riot suppressors, an
EMP and a hacking device, this thing just wreaks everything the Arkham
Knight can throw at it.
So the game sounds great and well for me
anyway it is, I've seen some people complain about the Arkham
Knights identity and the overuse of the Batmobile, but neither of those
things are an issue to me or the way I played and enjoyed the game, but
if there was any problems that I had with the game were the DLC story
packs, The Red Hood and Harley Quinn story packs respectively, the issue
with them are the short length and that the animation, especially when
the characters speak, are not on the same level of the main game, but if
a games only issue is additional content, then that isn't that much
of a problem.
So Batman Arkham Knight ends the series on a high
note, unless you planed to play on the PC. So I'll give Batman
Arkham Knight a 4.9 out of 5 stars.
