Batman: Arkham Knight, The bat is back

What is there to say about Batman that fans don’t already know? Well, the caped crusader has been fighting crime for longer what most of us have been alive, and has built up an incredibly strong following. Analysing the alter-ego of Bruce Wayne, you will soon realise that he isn’t a typical super hero if he can even be described as a super hero.  What makes him rather unique in a field of characters and villains with all sorts of powers, is that he has none.

He fights crime with brute strength and of course the very generous helping of some of the coolest gadgets known to man. That is his super power the very best tools and toys that a billionaire can buy. But as far as super heroes go, Batman has routinely been the subject of many, many video games. It is arguable that he has starred in more video games than any other character save probably for Spiderman or Superman.

While the early attempts to immortalise him in a video game turned out somewhat OK, it has only been in the last couple of year that his characters has really been given the love and attention it deserves. Taking the grittiness from the Dark Knight films, Batman: Arkham Knight follows on from the previous titles, of which 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins was last which also makes this the fourth instalment in the Batman: Arkham series.

If you played the title prior to Origins 2011’s Batman: Arkham City you should feel right at home for his one, as it takes place one year after Origins’ conclusion. To jolt your memory, Batman is at his height of his abilities and needs to confront Scarecrow, who has returned to Gotham City.

There always seems to be a plot to kill Batman…While the story carries on from ‘City’ left off, this title will make use of a number of elements present throughout the entire franchise, and will see a return of some of the most-loved gadgets and tools.

Some of the tools that players can look forward to are the grapnel gun, line launcher, batarangs, the countering system and detective vision. In addition to that, gamers will now be able to glide through the city by making use of Batman’s cape, which allows for longer sustained flights, steeper dives and higher climbs.

But one of the biggest things that players surely can’t wait to get into, is the Batmobile and yes, it is a driveable element in ‘Knight’. Running through the streets of Gotham City, Batman can summon the Batmobile at will, or it will be delivered where he lands while in flight.  In any case, if you are a fan of Batman, you should definitely get your hands on a copy of Batman: Arkham Knight when it comes out it is well worth the money.
