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.

BatmanArkhamKnight.jpgA few post back talked about getting myself a copy of the limited edition for Batman: Arkham Knight.  Couldn’t find any that was insane in price.  So for my birthday picked up a copy of the standard version.  Which did come with some codes for some add on stuff.  Bought the PS4 version so it came with some time exclusives.  Which are, Scarecrow Nightmare Missions. Plus two skins for Batman, Justice League 3000 Batman and Classic TV series Batman.  All so a skin of the classic TV for the Batmobile.    It all so came with Harley Quinn story pack and a prototype Batmobile skin.

What I dislike about games now is there is all ways a big file to download before you can play.  The one for this game is about 4GB.  When that was downloading decided to put in the codes that came with it.  Turns out the PSN Store in down for maintenance.  Did find a nice site that show the status of the PlayStation Network > here.

[Update] Played about 6% for the story so far.  First off the game looks awesome.  The storyline so far is pretty interesting.  All the missions I have done so far involve the Batmobile is some way.  For the most part its easy to use.  Except for one mission. For some reason it  controlled terribly.  Other than that it fun so far.

BatmanArkhamKnight.jpgThe new game Batman: Arkham Knight is now out after many delays.  Have been looking forward to playing this game for a very long time.  Have not bought it yet.  Because am still The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  The plan is to get a copy for myself on my birthday.  Have been eyeballing getting the the limited edition.   Have never bought one of these for any game.  Thought it would it would make a nice give to myself.  Amazon.ca doesn’t have any (on June 24, 2015).  Might call round to see if any local place might have it before I pick up the standard version.

On another Batman note.  There is a Batman Arkham Knight Vol. 1 hardcover graphic novel will be out soon.  It will be out on July 14, 2015.  Will be putting that on my list to buy.
