Batman Arkham Asylum was released, and I covered it in another video on my channel. My overall thoughts were that It had a great atmosphere, combat, stealth, and a pretty decent story. Arkham City was released a few years later. It did a fantastic job building upon the foundation set in Arkham Asylum. I had planned to make a video on Arkham City a few months ago. However, my 40 hours of footage got corrupted, and I basically rage quit the video. Arkham Origins came out, and many of you did not like it and felt it didn't do much to improve on the Arkham formula. Arkham Origins was developed by Warner Brothers Montreal. It was meant to be a sort of filler game while rocksteady, the developers who created both Arkham asylum and City, were working on the grand finale to the Arkham series, Arkham Knight.
Now there are a lot of criticisms people have with the game. I want to clarify that while this is a defence, and while a lot of people have strong opinions on the flaws of the game, they didn't say that the game was terrible, well, most of them didn't. The general consensus was the game wasn't the Arkham Swansong that they were expecting, and due to multiple reasons, which I will get into, they felt disappointed. I personally feel like this is the perfect Batman game, and on top of that, I think it is the only Batman game that truly lives up to the series tagline of "Be the batman."
I want to address every criticism that people have made against this game, and while some of them are valid, others I am confident I can reasonably counter. Of course, there is an element of subjectivity to all of this, so I don't think you're wrong if you didn't enjoy Arkham Knight and you are entitled to that opinion just as much as everyone else so please be civil in the comments. I also want to clearly state that I am playing this on a PS4 Pro.
I must clarify that, like always, there will be spoilers ahead. The game came out five years ago now, and if you haven't played it, I implore you to give it a shot as it's quite cheap now. A lot of this video is going to be going on the assumption that you have played at least one Arkham game. Hence, if you haven't played any of them, stop the video and give it a shot.
