Awesome topic, @AmberButane2814! I love the Arkham games! It’s hard to beat the original, Arkham Asylum, but for me the best game in the series is Arkham Knight.
Everything we loved about the previous games has been and tightened and perfected - starting the player with a solid Bat-arsenal and skillset. The story has a smooth pace with a steady flow of transitional cutscenes, showcasing excellent characters, fun detective work, and a fuller map to explore. “Be The Batman” is a genius slogan and I really feel the responsibility to save the city throughout.
The intro scene with the Scarecrow sets the tone for a darker, scarier Gotham. I remember how surprising it was to be thrown right into the action!
I loved playing as various Batfamily members but the best part was every confrontation with The Joker, always throwing me off guard and making me question everything I thought I knew.
I’ll admit that the Batmobile missions could be cumbersome, but this is my absolute favorite Batman Arkham game and I think they nailed it!
Bonus points for utilizing the new PS4 controller model to unite the sounds with the television audio! Every gadget and goon came through the device and made the experience that much more immersive!
