Batman: Arkham Knight, Arkham Episodes Batgirl: A Matter Of Family PS4 Review

When the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass was announced, it was immediately met with criticism from the community due to the high price tag and the significant lack of content disclosure. However Rocksteady and WB Games quickly recovered and decided to share an overview of what season pass holders would be able to expect, included in that was the reveal of Batgirl: A Matter of Family.

In the Arkham franchise, aside from Origins, We’ve never had an opportunity to see Barbara as she was before the events that unfolded in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke, when she was paralyzed from the waist down by the Joker. Somewhere in between the Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum continuity there existed a time when Barbara Gordon was Batgirl. This is why I was excited, the idea that we’d finally get an opportunity to see Barbara’s strength and determination portrayed in a different light within the Arkhamverse.

However this is the 3rd piece of DLC we’ve seen for Batman: Arkham Knight that has been developed by the WB Games Montreal team, this is also the last piece of DLC that they’ll be developing for this game. Have they saved the best for last or will Batgirl: A Matter of Family fall in line with the rest of the DLC they’ve produced thus far?

If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to check it out, here it is in action.

Batman: Arkham Knight, Arkham Episodes Harley Quinn Story Pack PS4 Review

The Harley Quinn Story Pack was another pre-order bonus for Batman: Arkham Knight, however unlike the Red Hood Story Pack this was made available to everyone regardless of where purchased or the format pre-ordered. For me there wasn’t ever a question as to whether or not I was going to be pre-ordering Batman: Arkham Knight, however the prospect of getting this story DLC certainly didn’t hurt. Even though I was looking forward to playing this content, I didn’t really know what to expect until we received the official gameplay trailer and I was thrilled. However the question remains, did the Harley Quinn Story Pack live up to my expectations? Just in case you haven’t had a chance to see the Harley Quinn Story Pack in action, you can check it out here.
