Bat­man: Arkham Knight

Arkham tril­ogy that started with Arkham Asy­lum and Arkham-City cul­mi­nates in this bit of Xbox One bril­liance. De­spite a plot that is less sur­pris­ing than a wind-up ex­plod­ing pen­guin, and some al­most aw­ful con­vo­luted se­quences in­volv­ing com­bat in the Bat­mo­bile, its mix of stealth, in­tu­itive counter-at­tack­based com­bat, in­ves­ti­ga­tion, a huge open-world Gotham City and wealth of great Bat­man char­ac­ters with top-notch voice act­ing make this the su­per-est of our superhero Xbox games. The Arkham se­ries is in fact, so good, that ev­ery time DC make a new film, we gamers groan at the ap­par­ent in­ep­ti­tude of Hol­ly­wood when it comes to cast­ing and writ­ing Bat­man movies. And, de­spite the Joker be­ing ‘dead’, Mark Hamill puts in his best turn yet as the Clown Prince plagu­ing Bruce Wayne’s mind.
