Batman™: Arkham Knight (Bought for about €30am in The Keyhshop) What is purely clear from the front is that you need a very good PC to be able to play this Game sensibly! Yes, the Implementation on the PC is unfortunately the biggest shit and it does not look like the nice Colleagues can save this Game, too bad actually ... Personally, I can't complain, because with MSI's 980Ti and INTEL's 6700k, the Game runs with me as oiled on a constant 60FPS and also looks stunning! On Story and so on I don't want to go down great that everyone has to play for themselves but you can definitely say you will have enough to do! Arkham Night still somehow managed to become my Favorite Batman Game, because the Combat System, the Graphics, the Story and everything around it is very much successful! :) GUTER PC = BUY! :) NOT SO GOOD PC = LOIIIIVER NOT! :/

One Of my Favorite Games! I'm a big Batman Fan and in this Series he's been very well implemented. Also his Relationship with other DC Characters like Tim Drake as Robin, Jim Gordon and others. To the Game itself, all I can say is that it can be played great. The Combat System has a lot of depth with Batman's technique like the Batclaw, Sturgeons, smoke Bombs etc and, in my Opinion, is significantly more Fun than Fights in Games like Assassins Creed or The Witcher. The Openworld Aspect has also succeeded well. There's plenty to uncover and it's Fun to fly over Gotham's Rooftops as Batman. The optional Sidequests reward you with additional Boss battles, which I think is extremely cool! But not only the Characters and the Gameplay have succeeded well, the Action, Cutscenes and Story Elements are also the spirit Of the Election! Without spoiling: A Moment in the Story is so emotional and strong that it is one of my absolute Favorite moments in the Game which has a super idea with an incredibly good Implementation. And as a Batman Fan I have to say, the last 30 Minutes of the Game until the first End are just epic. I write first End because the Game still has a second End. And that's pretty much the only thing I really have to criticize about the Game: A Sidequest involves collecting over 200 Trophies hidden somewhere in Gotham. Only when you collect them do you get to see the Boss battle of this Sidequest. You have to complete all Sidecests to get a Cut-scene after the End with the absolute End. But Since I don't have a buck to do anything boring like collecting over 200 Trophies (which, however, are always behind a Puzzle) I had to watch the Cutscene on Youtube. That hasn't taken the Fun off me now, because it doesn't make a difference for me whether I see or ingame a 3 minute cutscene on Youtube. It is nevertheless frustrated that you do not allow you to complete a Game because you still have to collect 154 Trophies. Still, The Game has my absolute Recommendation. One Of the best Openworld Concepts. One Of the best Combat Systems in Openworld games. Absolutely exciting Story. And Batman is as much Batman as it gets!

I was incredibly hyped for this game, especially as all the others I have really enjoyed. The mechanics of the game that they didn't change are still great i.e. the combat, puzzles, stealth and grappling around Gotham. However, the inclusion (for some daft reason) of the Batmobile really brought down the fun. Too much of the game was focused on Batmobile combat and puzzle solving and it just didn't work very well. On top of the story is predictable and doesn't do much to build upon the exceptional work that went before it. Such a shame...
