Trivia

The game's autumn setting necessitated a change in character designs, in contrast to the winter setting of Batman: Arkham City (2011):
  • the Scarecrow's costume looks more decayed and damaged.
  • the Penguin lost his long coat, was made to look dirtier (his clothing shows signs of sweat and food stains) and his head was shaved.
  • the Riddler retains his green shirts bearing question marks, but constantly modifies his own costume in response to the events of the plot.
  • Two-Face's costume does not change too much, instead emphasizing his burnt flesh and duality.

In the Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC, which is set between the events of Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum, the mantle of Robin is held by Tim Drake in his suit from Arkham Knight. At this point in time, the mantle of Robin should be held by Dick Grayson or Jason Todd. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
G.C.P.D. Commissioner James Gordon: Nine months ago, Joker was cremated. I pressed the button and burnt the evil bastard myself. And then, we waited. Gotham braced itself for the inevitable power struggle. But it didn't come. Crime actually fell. Deep down, I knew war was coming. I was just waiting for someone to pull the trigger.

Dark Times in Gotham Captured Beautifully
18 May 2019 | by hydroshock-84478See all my reviews

I am vengeance, I am the night... I AM BATMAN!

Batman: Arkham Knight was my first single-player driven open world game, and it had me addicted. The presentation was strong, and it seemed that there was no better experience of being the Bat than this game. I later did go back and play the other Arkham titles, and while Arkham City is also a 10/10 for me, Arkham Knight perfects many things, and it overall felt the best to play.

To start with, the game looks amazing. Even now, a 2015 game such as this looks better than today's releases. The city of Gotham (the "City of Fear") is detailed to the max, and the rain effect looks so real as it soaks everyone and everything. The character models, to me at least, look better than ever before, even the Bat himself. As for the story, I can see its flaws and why not everyone liked it, but if definitely nailed the vibe of crime, drama, and darkness covering the city of Gotham in perhaps the most dire situation the Dark Knight has ever faced. The emotion and intensity of the matter at hand is captured beautifully, and while there were a few shortcomings in the story such as a few cliche moments and minor plot holes, I found it epic overall. It even has moments where characters do the unthinkable, and I will not spoil what kinds of things I mean.

Thr gameplay is terrific. What already worked in previous entries of this series is done the best here. Combat feels fluid, and even though the lock-on can be annoying, seeing Batman move faster and hit harder is so satisfying. However, Batman will need that as he is no longer just fighting armed thugs, but also a well-trained army of militia troops working for the elusive Arkham Knight and Scarecrow. The overall enemy variety is the same as previous games, such as the brutes, gunmen, and shock baton enemies, but there are even more types here, such as the medics and combat experts. I felt that this game needed more strategy as there aren't just human enemies, but drones as well. Of course, you have your own fair share with an arsenal of both old and new gadgets, and the Batmobile.

Even with this game being 10/10 for me, it isn't perfect. Where its main weakness shows is the execution of the Batmovile gameplay, which affected the outcome of the boss fights, sadly. Obviously it's still fun to drive the Batmobile here and there, but too many sequences required the player to use it, so it just got stale. And because of that, the boss battles became sub-par for the most part. It has nothing on the boss fights from Arkham City. So while this game has a better open world and combat system in my opinion, as well as the addition of the Batmobile, Arkham City has the superior bosses, and still has a bit of a stronger story.

Despite these setbacks, this game is a great experience to give a shot. Not any other game have I felt more like the Batman. There is lots to do other than the main story, and many iconic villains appear. Sure, it's a bit of wasted potential with that and the upgraded combat system that the boss fights didn't meet expectations, but what this game gets right, it nails it in my book.
