Games & Gear of 2015: Batman Arkham Knight (06/02/2015)


Well people this is it. The final title in the excellent Arkham series of Batman games. This one series gave hope to gamers, who are also hardcore comic book enthusiasts, that a good comic book game can be possible (although Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2 was pretty good in my opinion). After Arkham City and subsequently the death of Joker, Gotham has become pretty peaceful since the clown prince of crime took a dirt nap. However it wouldn’t last because the rest of Batman’s rouges gallery decided to go after Batman directly by taking over a huge chunk of the city and flooding it with scum and villainy. To make matters worse a heavily armed and armor vigilante called Arkham Knight has shown up wants nothing more than to kill Batman (big surprise). So in addition to saving the city (again), and taking out the likes of Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, players will have to watch their back for the Arkham Knight – an anti-Batman if you will. You know the old saying people, if you need to go out, go out with a bang, a Batman Arkham Knight sounds like a thick and meaty bang to me.
