"Batman confronts the ultimate threat against the city he has been sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to congeal an imposing array of super villains, including The Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to summarily destroy The Dark Knight. The game introduces Rocksteady's uniquely-designed imagining of the Batmobile, drivable for the first time in the franchise. Batman: Arkham Knight offers gamers a complete Batman experience as they rip through the streets and soar across the skyline of the iconic Gotham City"--From www.metacritic.com.

Batman: Arkham Knight, the last installment to the Arkham game series, presents the story of Batman after the death of the Joker, which occured in Batman: Arkham City. In the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight, Scarecrow plays the main antagonist and he is attempting to unleash a fear toxin to all of Gotham City. Throughout the story, Batman tries to locate Scarecrow and stop him from unleashing this onto Gotham, but there is another villain who wants to take down Batman: an unknown figure named the Arkham Knight. In the midst of the chaos, Batman still suffers from the feeling of guilt from letting the Joker die and constantly sees the Joker but they are only imaginations that are in Batman's head. Batman: Arkham Knight's storyline is much more in depth because there was so much implementation of the DC series as a whole. Personally, I loved the representation of Scarecrow in this game because the "fear" element of him was so well developed and showed that he was truly a terrifying character. Also, the graphics in this game were a lot better than the previous three games, mostly because the game was released onto the next generation consoles and the appearance of the characters looked so much better. All in all, if you are a Batman or Arkham game series fan, this game is definitely recommended for you because it has all the features that are needed for a great Batman: Arkham game. Rating 5/5. @booksandgames9 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

As the final Batman game Rocksteady will ever make, it’s hard to say Arkham Knight is anything but a fitting end to the trilogy. Speaking just in terms of the story, Batman: Arkham Knight puts the Dark Knight’s back against the wall, and lets players experience a story that’s mature but filled with plenty of cool comic book touches.While I did grow more and more comfortable with the Batmobile as I played the game, I never really liked it. Yes, you can solve some cool puzzles with Batman’s car I even liked the Riddler’s races , and yes it can be fun to drive really fast and then eject into the sky. But that’s about it. If driving from here to there and solving some neat puzzles was all you ever did with the Batmobile, fine. But such is not the case. Nevertheless, there’s little doubt that Batman and character action fans, dare we say gaming fans in general, will find Batman: Arkham Knight a wholly satisfying experience. It plays great, it looks great, and its story is better than many Hollywood blockbusters out there. The vehicle combat in Arkham Knight is a misfire. Essentially, it’s Batman vs robot tanks. The Batmobile assumes a battle mode position where it can move precisely in a 360 degree space, using the main cannon to take out these unmanned drones. Rocksteady treats this as a third pillar to the existing predator and freeflow combat sections of the series, affording it a dispiriting amount of time in the main story, but it seriously lacks that feeling of progression beyond a couple of special moves and weapon improvements.
On that level, Arkham Knight offers an unparalleled interactive superhero experience that’s as rich as any fan could hope for - this is one of the best open worlds I have ever had the pleasure of exploring, and one of the nicest-looking games on PS4. Without overcomplicating the Batmobile’s purpose in Arkham Knight and a slightly less disappointing campaign, this would’ve been close to a perfect sign-off for Rocksteady’s Caped Crusader.
