2Batman: Arkham Knight
- Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Rocksteady’s Arkham series has perhaps provided us with the best Batman games ever, and it culminated in the greatness that is Batman: Arkham Knight. Developed for PS4 and Xbox One, this is the most technically advanced game in the trilogy, with visuals that still look sumptuous to this day. And thanks to backwards compatibility you can play it on Sony and Microsoft’s latest consoles, too.
Batman: Arkham Knight truly allows you to be The Batman, as you try to take back control of Gotham City after Scarecrow has united its super-criminals. You can take on criminals with stealth or brutal combat, employ a wide range of gadgets, and there’s even some detective work to be done. New to Batman: Arkham Knight is the inclusion of the Batmobile, too. With it, you can pursue enemies at high speed or engage battle mode for maximum firepower.
It’s best if you play Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City before tackling Batman: Arkham Knight if you want the full story, and thankfully they’re both playable on current consoles thanks to the Batman: Return to Arkham collection. But even if you jump in with the third and last instalment, you’ll still very much enjoy yourself.
