08 Bat­man: Arkham Knight

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGAT­ES -

The fi­nal en­try in the Bat­man Arkham se­ries is the finest of them all when it comes to ac­tion. Build­ing on every­thing that came be­fore it, this presents the ul­ti­mate ver­sion of the se­ries’ su­per slick re­ac­tive com­bat. The fight­ing style of deal­ing out blows with but­ton-prompts to re­act to in­com­ing hits has since in­flu­enced other games – you can see a very sim­i­lar ver­sion in Mid­dle-earth: Shadow Of War. You also can’t beat the mo­tion of Bat­man glid­ing around the city, his cape glis­ten­ing in the night sky as he dips and grap­ples his way from build­ing to build­ing. The sense of move­ment is fan­tas­tic; it set a bar for the feel­ing of flight that other games will need to work hard to beat. DEV Gear­box Soft­ware RE­LEASE June 2015 For­mat Xbox One
