It's a fitting, if falling somewhat short, conclusion to the Arkham Saga. John H. (59) 4.43 Stars4.43 Stars4.43 Stars4.43 Stars4.43 Stars

Gamegravy (Jun 29, 2015)
It took me a little over twelve hours to complete the main story and even more to complete the side missions. There are two endings: One at 75% complete and one at 100% complete, not to mention the New Game Plus and all of the challenge maps. Currently the game doesn’t have the option of playing the challenge maps as other characters but hopefully that will change. There’s a lot of value here, including a very ambitious DLC season pass that will add more to the game over the next six months, including Batgirl’s debut to the series. If this is Rocksteady’s swan song, let’s hope it’s more like the lyrics of the song “We’ll Meet Again” made famous by Dame Vera Lynn: “We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when, but I know we’ll meet again, some sunny day”. Have fun saving Gotham.

Batman: Arkham Knight take the series and sends it on its way in style. Easy enough to pick up and play, but it does take some time to master being the Batman. The story is deep enough to keep players engaged and even includes a few nods to the hardcore Batman fans who’ve followed the comics, cartoons and just about every other media that the Caped Crusader has appeared in. In short – it’s bloody awesome.

Si le troisième épisode de la trilogie du Dark Knight de Rocksteady aurait dû crever l'écran, il se cantonne « simplement » au rang d'excellent jeu. La faute à une construction bancale bâtie autour de LA nouveauté de cet opus, à savoir la Batmobile. De fait, les développeurs semblent s'être un peu trop concentrés sur cet élément au détriment du reste qui demeure malgré tout d'un niveau hors du commun. Ainsi, en associant visuel bluffant, gameplay souple et dynamique et solide durée de vie, Batman Arkham Knight parvient sans peine à s'imposer comme l'un des meilleurs jeux de super-héros à ce jour sans pour autant être la fin parfaite qu'on était en droit d'attendre.

Rocksteady's gorgeous-looking third Arkham game refines its open-world format a bit and lets you drive a whole hell of a lot of Batmobile.

Arkham Knight is a solid, if uneven send-off for Rocksteady's trilogy. Combat and predation are still satisfying. The narrative mixes unsurprising, but well done segments with unsurprising and uninteresting elements. It's full of nods, winks, nudges for batfans, even if certain super villain side missions feel needlessly tossed in. It makes me worried about what will happen with Batman in a new developer's less comfortable hands, and excited for what Rocksteady might do, itself free of the Batman myth.

Mit dem Abschied von der Arkham-Serie wollte Rocksteady hoch hinaus – zu hoch, denn die Entwickler haben den Blick fürs Detail verloren. Weil es dort weniger zu tun gibt, läuft Batman etwa kaum noch über die Straßen. So wird die hübsche Stadt zur leeren Fassade. Sowohl die Geschichte als auch das Spiel halten sich zudem mit dem Zitieren der Höhepunkte aus Vorgängern auf, anstatt wirklich neue Abenteuer zu erzählen und ihrem Helden mehr Profil zu geben. Eine echte Zumutung ist jedoch das Batmobil: Weil das pfeilschnelle Kanonenboot mehr Schaden anrichtet als es heilen kann, passt es einfach nicht zu Gothams Beschützer. Und wenn es sich nicht gerade in langweiligen Ballerbuden festfährt, schleicht es auf alberne Weise mächtigen Panzern hinterher. (...) Auch im vierten Arkham-Abenteuer steckt ein serientypisch gutes, stellenweise sehr gutes Spiel – das von erzählerischen Mängeln allerdings geschwächt und einer höchst fragwürdigen Designentscheidung beinahe zerstört wird.

Batman Arkham Knight: Catwoman’s Revenge has a wonderfully twisted setting, but an- all-too-brief campaign doesn’t utilize it enough. Like Arkham Knight’s Batgirl DLC before it, this is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it affair.
 
Diehard GameFan (Jul 10, 2015)
Let’s be clear. There are some bumps in the road. The plot is a little messy at times, and the Batmobile can easily wear out its welcome. You might hit the odd bug or two as you’re moving forward. However, none of that stops Arkham Knight from being one of the best games of the year, and a fitting ending to the trilogy. Is it better than Arkham City? That’s debatable, but it’s certainly in the same league.
