I've been looking for a new game to play and have revisited Batman: Arkham Knight and I've been blown away by the quality of this game. At launch I remember it had a ton of performance issues, but coming back to the fixed version with all the DLC included is a fantastic experience.

Fun deep combat, fun traversal, the Batmobile is a blast to use, great puzzles, great voice acting and story, great characters, gorgeous environments, so much to do in the city, it's just the whole package. It's hard to believe this game came out in 2015, feels like it could have been a 2019 release.

Fanatical is running a deal on it if you don't have it already.

They also have a deal on the whole trilogy.

If you need something to play, check it out! If you like these types of games, you won't be disappointed. I'm not a huge Batman fan, but I still love it. Now we just need Spider-Man to be ported to Steam, fingers crossed.

I think the next Batman game is going to be revealed at the end of August, at the DC FanDome event.

Good game, but too much focus on Batmobile was a mistake, imo. Also it got worst boss fights in entire series.

I agree, the batmobile was cool, but it wasn't better than flying across Arkham City with the grappling hook. Boss fights, especially the batmobile stealth sections, were terrible. I think Arkham Knight's main issue was thinking bigger is better. City is still the best in the series, because it was more focused with better story and side content.

it's a common mistake, especially in movie sequels, but also in games, that creators think bigger is better, and instead lose focus. A great example is Batman & Robin, with 2 villains and 3 heroes, but no characterization for any of them. see also Suicide Squad, where the studios decided to cut the character development in favor of more explosions

I may be in the minority but I love the batmobile gameplay. It always keeps the pace changing and fresh. And most of the time, you have a choice if you want to drive around or fly.

i recently started replaying the whole series but took a break before starting arkham origins. i'm a huge fan of them all though..i pre-ordered arkham knight so i had to deal with the shitty optimizations, though nvidia's day one drivers did at least make it playable. the games are a nice twist on the classic metroidvania genre, given an extra dimension to play in.

its a way to say. i play all of them. for my, the 3 better ones are Arkham Asylum, Arkham city and akrham knight, as a main trilogy, and origin and blackgate are like an spin off

Gameplay is quite good, probably the best in the series.
But everything about the the story, how storythreads from previous games were resolved and how some characters acted and were depicted was very disappointing for me. And I hate that despite this being announced as the grand finale to the Arkham Trilogy, the game ends very open-ended.

I think all the Batman games are great. Though, I've not played Arkham Origins Blackgate, yet. x.x I think it's standalone.

Even had Arkham Knight running 2560x1080 (21:9)on Low settings @ 75FPS (with some 1% drops into the 50s, though this was likely due to my aging 7200RPM HDD in my desktop) with just a regular ol' GTX1060. And now we've got options like the RX580 performing close to, if not better than the 1660 for only $170. \o/

In my opinion Arkham Knight is good but it feels like there's two games in there fighting for the spotlight, I think the Batmobile has some nice ideas that deserved its own standalone game where they could be explored in full without having to compete with the machanics and narrative inherited from the other Arkham tittles, specially because the other three made it better.
Asylum still is the bast in my mind, the metroidvania-esque progression and map really suit the style of gameplay. City is really good but there's way too much stuff, to the point that the story just blurs together in my memory. Origins has the strongest narrative of the whole series and it really makes you feel like you're the Batman but the jank is omnipresent, so many collision bugs, weird animations, and braindead AI.
I'll probably replay Knight at some point since I don't own the DLC on Steam but I heard they added it to the free version that Epic gave away, I'd just need to transfer my savefile somehow.
