The world has had a rather long wait when it comes to Batman: Arkham Knight and that wait is finally coming to an end this Tuesday. The best news of all is that the game appears to be really, really good. The game has been delayed a number of times because the developers and the studio wanted to make sure it lived up to the hype. As members of the media get their hands on copies of the game, it looks like those delays were worth the time and effort.

Ratings on are allowing Batman: Arkham Knight to post an average over 90. That rating, as of today means there are 17 overwhelmingly positive reviews with just one qualifying as “mixed.” The glowing reviews appear to go along with what people have been expecting when they were watching videos and learning more about the game. At the same time, there are some problems that have been following this game from the very beginning and they appear to continue to be following it. While the title hasn’t been delayed yet again, it is indeed coming out Tuesday, it appears that the Limited Edition version has been pushed back again.

That won’t really bring down the reviews of the game but it does show problems are still surrounding the game. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons Gamespot found something to complain about. On the flipside of that, Polygon gave the game a perfect score. The average puts Arkham Knight right in the middle of the trilogy in far as ratings, with Arkham City getting ratings in the high 90s and Arkham Origins falling well short. In just a few days, you’ll be able to posit your own thoughts on Batman: Arkham Knight because it launches on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 23.

    Can’t believe I’m saying this but…I’m.not buying this game. For those regulars here at this site you basically know I buy everything whether it’s ps4, xb1 or PC…but this game… I dunno. The original was amazing because it was linear, it was curated and special. Arkham city was open and didn’t feel quite as loved or special. Origins was awful and arkham knight looks like city with the bat mobile and a over use of said vehicle. No ty.

      Well people are saying the batmobile is the worst part of the game…..which is really sad who doesn’t want to drive the batmobile!

    • Josh Kierstead

      Considering the fighting system is the best in gaming and has been refined over Asylum and City, it is no wonder the driving feels a bit clunky in comparison. I wish they had another Arkham game to refine it.

      Looks like you will be missing out on a piece of history. I suggest you actually play the game first at least before you blast it. You can’t always go by videos or someone else’s negative opinion about the game.

    • d0x360

      I’ll play it and if I like it I’ll.but it for sure. I just won’t be buying it on day 1 and I’m certainly not falling for that season pass nonsense. In 6 months or less you will be able to get the game PLUS all that expensive dlc and maybe more for $30-50 in a goty edition so…I’ll wait. Witcher 3 will tide me over fine.

    • Josh Kierstead

      This article is misleading. Arkham Origins wasn’t made by Rocksteady and wasn’t part of the trilogy. Rocksteady made Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and now this. I wouldn’t use Origins as an indicator of where this series is going. The vehicle combat might be so-so, but the game is supposed to be great otherwise.

    • d0x360

      Who cares who made it? It has the same exact tired gameplay. All they added was the batmobile. The combat itself is EXACTLY THE SAME

    • Josh Kierstead

      From the gameplay demos and preview articles, there are plenty of small tweaks to the combat and opponents. If you wanted completely different gameplay, perhaps looking to the 3rd and final Arkham game to reinvent the entire wheel is asking too much. Virtually no sequels throw out everything about the original. Exactly the same, as you put it, is just trolling. Don’t buy the game, but don’t come on here an make stuff up.

    • d0x360

      Trolling? wanting a deeper system of investigation is trolling? Wanting coop is trolling? Yea..yea…I see it now. You are right I should be happy. Instead BATMOBILE!

    You must be referring to the PS4 version, because the PC version is tanking on metacritic.
