Batman: Arkham Knight Review

BatmanArkhamKnight.jpgFinished up the main storyline and about 90% of the side missions (so far) in Batman: Arkham Knight.  They story was really good in spots and others fell a bit flat.  Think this is because its an open world game.  I love open world games.  That is pretty much all the games I own now.  They all run into the same problem at at some point.  That is when something big goes down in the story line.  Then its back to doing the side missions like nothing happened.  I know there is not much that can be done with at.

The map is even bigger because you get to use the Batmobile a lot.  At first found the controls a bit hard to get use to.  That is because there are two modes.  One is the regular driving mode.  Which is fine but when you get in a pursuit the camera pulls back a bit.  Then when taking corners or taking the bad guys out it goes funny.  Takes some time getting used to.  The second mode is battle mode.  Turns the Batmobile into a tank.  This can be fun and a pain at the some time.   It helps a lot to upgrading it.  Not only can you upgrade Batman and his tech/weapons/fighting.  You upgrade the Batmobile weapons and defenses.

There are a lot of varied side missions.  Which are all fun for the most part.  So of then are all finished at %100 with in about four of five segments.  While others take the whole storyline play though to unlock.  Like the past games there are lots of Riddler trophies to find.  Some are easy to find other have many step puzzles to get them.  Even the Batmobile comes into play with some.

Over all the game is a blast to play.  Its much like there other but new and different at the some time.  All so like the other games the combat can be a blast when you get the flow just right. Then a pain in the ass when they throw too many at you.  Each which takes a different technique to take down.  Which makes for some very frustrating moments.  Had some frustrating moments in the main storyline missions.  But not as many as the last games.  Not sure if there will be any more Arkham games.  If they do make another I would gladly buy another one.  Arkham Knight is a great game.  Well worth the time and money.
