Best PS4 Games #7 – Batman: Arkham Knight

Developer: Rocksteady Studios

Synopsis: Bruce Wayne must save Gotham City once more as a specialized toxin is released into the city. Anyone who comes in contact with it instantly becomes insane, driven to attack anyone else in sight until they are mauled to death. Scarecrow is responsible, calling upon the Arkham Knight to help do his bidding while serving upon the Knight’s vow for revenge.

There are tons of missions to do in Arkham Knight outside of the main story, including taking down enemies like Two-Face, The Penguin, training a possible replacement for Batman should Wayne step back from the spotlight, plus collecting tons of hidden riddles across Gotham. 100% completion is necessary to uncover the hidden, real ending of the game.

Why it’s one of the 50 best PS4 games: Arkham Knight was one of the first real strong examples of the 8th-generation console hardware firing on all cylinders. Here you have an open-world action game that looks and performs strongly, all while telling an adapted story with the developer’s spirit shining through. The voice acting remains a point of praise, especially concerning Hollywood talent that includes the likes of Jonathan Banks as Commissioner Gordon, John Noble as Scarecrow and others I dare not mention now.

Furthermore, Arkham Knight had the balls to end on a cliffhanger that truly carries multiple interpretations. To be able to finish off a series, one that brought countless hours of comboing henchmen by the dozens at a time, in a way that is genuinely thought-provoking is worthy of recognition.
