The World of Arkham Knight
Arkham Knight is an action adventure where players take the role of Batman who travels around the Gotham City rescuing hostages, inspecting the crime scenes, and battling Scarecrow and the Arkham Knights army. The game is the fourth recent Batman game and the third one on the Rocksteady collections. The game has received a rating of 8-9 out of 10 in most online platforms.
Gotham city changes and mutates over the course of the game bringing out both cartoonish and creepy shades that are very distinct from other games. The developer used Unreal Engine 3 to design the Arkham Knights game. The technology was the same one used in Arkham Asylum and City. However, the visuals in Knights are sharper than in the previous versions of the Arkham productions.
Rocksteady Studios have also given players the liberty to travel and explore the larger part of the Gotham city which is almost five times bigger than what was seen in Arkham trilogy.
The Batmobile is another feature that has made an entry to the Batman trilogy series. The Batmobile served as a key differentiator of the game and the former Arkham City. The Batmobile helps the players to move around the city while at the same time firing missiles, 60mm cannon balls, and bullets to take down the enemy drones.
Batman has included non-lethal weapons such as riot suppressor that help him retain his golden rule against killing. Batman does not visit Wayne Manor in his quest to retake Gotham. He, however, takes trips to Gotham Clock where he has a mini-Batcave and the Oracles operations base. The Arkham Knight reviews show that the presence of the Batmobile feature has increased the demand for the game.
Atmosphere and Location
According to the Arkham Knight reviews online, the music effects on the game seems to have awed the players just like in the previous versions of the Arkham Asylum and the Arkham City. The narrative, the detective skills, gadgets, the Batman melee combat, as well as the stealth capabilities are features that greatly attract most players to the game.
The game boasts of excellent music from Nick Arundel together with David Buckley (composer) who replaced Ron Fish, the official composer of the other Arkham games.
Batman, who is the main Batman Arkham Knight character, has as many gadgets- just like he used to have in the previous episodes of the Arkham trilogy. The grapnel gun, line launcher, and the batarangs are present in this version, although he has other additional gadgets. His cap gliding capabilities enable him to fly for longer distance while the Batarang sensor allows collection of information on his surrounding as he explores Gotham City.
Among the secondary Batman Arkham Knight characters there is Barbara Gordon, also known as Oracle, and the police led by James Gordon help him to retake Gotham City. Oracle provides the tech support to the Batman while he and the police work together to save the citizens.
Batman: Arkham Knight
The other major Batman Arkham Knigh characters are the villains. The Batman villains featured in this isntallment of the Batman franchise are among the most infamous. The cast of villains consists of Penguin, Harley Quinn, and Two-Face who unite under the leadership of Scarecrow to kill Batman. The super villains use drones and army mercenaries to control Gotham City. Arkham Knight is another villain who wears a suit that resembles the Batman with the only difference being the logo on his chest. Arkham has a grudge against Batman and he joins the Scarecrow team to make Gotham inhabitable.
The Batman Arkham Knight cast is absolutely stellar. Troy Baker voices some of the more important characters, including Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Jason Todd/Red Hood and the Arkhman Knight himself. Batman is voiced by Kevin Conroy, while Lenny Citrano provides the voice of Penguin.
The fact that the game provides a variety of side missions has made the Arkham Knights reviews to soar high than in any other game in the Batman’s trilogy. The primary task of the game is locating the dangerous criminals in Gotham City and capturing them. The numerous side missions that the player has to complete add up to the common goal of retaking Gotham City. The side missions on the game expand the Batman’s universe, but they are not essential to completing the main story.
Scarecrow has used threats-releasing gas with his Cloudburst device to instill fear on the city residents who have in turn cleared the streets or fled Gotham. The super villains have now taken the opportunity to terrorize residents in all manners with Penguin running guns, Two-face robbing banks, and Riddler carrying out kidnaps. The Batman has to complete these tasks and help restore the city to its original condition with the support of Oracle and the police.
The game provides generous activity list which consists of checkpoints to crash, watch towers to smash, and plenty of people who need rescuing.
The developer mixes up a variety of features across the game including combat and investigation skills to keep the game interesting and fun. The players get to spend a minimum of 12 hours playing the game, which involves Batman, three Robins, Barbara Gordon (Oracle), and the police.
The players are free to explore the wider part of the Gotham City, which has its big share of bright neon lights and prominent landmarks such as the Ace Chemicals and Wayne Tower.
DLC and Expansion Packs
Batman has numerous DLC and expansion packs which the players can purchase as part of the Season Pass for as little as $40. There are numerous Batman Arkham Knight skins to dowloand, for the main character as well as the secondary characters. The players can change the skin on the Batmobile. Other DLC that the players can get includes exclusive Batman Arkham Knight skin packs for Playstation and the Scarecrow Nightmare Missions.
The players enjoy a free selection of the Batman Arkham Knight characters in AR Combat Challenges and the option playing the hard level in AR Combat and the Batmobile Combat Challenges.
This explosive Batman finale has attracted higher sales than the two previous Arkham versions since its release in 2015. The game begins with the Barman perched on the rooftop looking at the city that needs redemption.
The Batman Arkham Knight character performance is stellar and allows you to take the Batmans role as if it were real and maneuver through the streets rescuing people without any barrier.
