Batman: Arkham Knight, The Long Awaited PS4 Review

First off I’d like to apologize that it has taken me so long to get this review together, however as you know I’m not always afforded as much time as I’d like to dig in and play games because everyday life tends to get in the way. And let’s face, it if I was going to review this game it was only going to be after 100% completion of the story and all side quests…

Rocksteady has built such an amazing franchise in the Batman:Arkham series, Arkham Asylum reignited my passion for gaming, Arkham City proved that you could improve upon perfection, and of course while Rocksteady was developing Arkham Knight WB games developed Arkham Origins which wasn’t perfect but they managed to prove they could tell a truly classic Batman story while taking full advantage of the groundwork that Rocksteady developed. Why make mention of any of this, how is this relevant to my review of Batman: Arkham Knight?

It’s simple. Batman: Arkham Knight is the game that I’ve most anticipated for the last few years, it’s the only reason that I stepped out and bought a PS4 when I did. My expectations for this game couldn’t possibly be any higher. The question remains, is it actually possible for Rocksteady to live up to my unrealistic expectations as they deliver their final entry into the Batman: Arkham franchise?

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.
