Well that certainly was an experience. As to be expected, I am reviewing this episode to episode and since the third episode tends to be the start of the rising action to the climax, this one will more than likely be the most well reviewed. I have to say that, unlike the other two, this episode was action packed from start to finish. Including potentially hooking up with Catwoman, seeing your fame and fortune town to sunder, dealing with the aftermath of the debate crisis, and revealing the true identity of the leader of the Children of Arkham… My god this one was an absolute roller coaster. While it still has its flaws, this episode was definitely enjoyable!
When the biggest complaint that I have about this episode is the fact that Bruce Wayne being dragged through the dirt for his father’s deeds is somewhat a silly and bullshit plot point, that definitely says a lot about the game that has been improving since its first episode.
The story is truly into high gear, you get to witness a truly heart breaking transformation of Harvey Dent to Harvey Two Face, and the reveal of the true leader of the Children of Arkham is jaw dropping. At this point, I’m looking forward to see where the game goes from here.
Score from Episode 1: 2.5/5
Score from Episode 2: 3/5
Score from Episode 3: 4/5
I think many people can remember my long rant about Batman: Arkham Knight and the fact that the game did not live up to my expectations. Well, here is the thing. I still love playing the game. I have been playing it the past couple of days. I don’t dislike the game, I just think it could have been substantially better then what it was. But, I do still enjoy it and I also enjoy the side quests that the game has to offer. Considering the game gives mountains of opportunities, I have decided to list them from worst to best. Now, I should add that just because a mission is at the bottom or the top of this list doesn’t mean that the game sucks for it or has changed the game forever. It is just the worst or best of the series that connects to a good game. I should also like to add that I am including the Season of Infamy Expansion on it as well. That being said, let’s start with our weak links. Continue reading “Batman: Arkham Knight Side Missions Ranked from Worst to Best”
YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE! You were supposed to be the saving grace to Triple A Gaming! The one game that we could all point to as a way to prove that the industry wasn’t a pile of shit! This was your chance in the sun Batman: Arkham Knight AND YOU FUCKED IT UP! My god, I don’t think I have ever been this disappointed in a game in all of my life… And this includes Resident Evil 6! Oh my god, this was so sad to play.
I guess before we move on, I should preface this review with the fact that Batman: Arkham Knight is a good game. It is… Do not get me wrong. I am not saying that Batman: Arkham Knight is a shit game. What I am saying is that it is a disappointing game. This is a game that should have been competing with games like Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Last of Us, Deus Ex, DOOM, Silent Hill 2, and even Batman: Arkham City for Greatest Game of All Time! This game should have easily scored a perfect 5/5 for me, a 4.5/5 if something wasn’t working on launch date. But no, instead we get a ‘pretty good game’ that doesn’t hold a candle to its predecessors. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Batman: Arkham Knight”
