Batman: Arkham Knight might be the best game of 2015

Batman Arkham Kinght might just be a super contender for the best game of 2015, or at least one of the summer’s best releases.

Let me tell you why.

I just happened to watch a video of the new Batman Arkham Knight Gameplay on the PS4 and all I have to say is WOW. This game looks absolutely amazing.

I only played a bit of the other ones, never to completion, but I can seriously say that I am really looking forward to this game quite a bit. I heard that it is going to be slightly delayed, but if that gives the devs more time to make it even more amazing and polish up the graphics even more before release then I’m all for it.

This game is supposed to be the finale, concluding all the other Arkham games, so I might have to go back and play them all before Arkham Knight is released.

The gameplay for this game just looks like pure unadulterated fun, everything from grappling your way and gliding across the city, to fighting multiple enemies at once, to simply walking around as the caped crusader looks awesome.

The only thing to top it all off is the God damn Batmobile, which you can drive in an open world environment to your hearts content. Besides looking Badass, and being extremely fast, it has a turbo boost, cruise missiles, and various other doohickeys. I can literally see myself just driving around in the Batmobile for hours NOT completing any of the game objectives. The best feature of the Batmobile though, has to be the fact that you can literally hop in an out of it whenever you please and SUMMON the vehicle at will. Yes, you read that correctly, you can SUMMON the Batmobile at will from the looks of things.

The cut scenes are very Batmanesque (yes, I made up a word) in all aspects from talking to Jim Gordon to interrogating rampant thugs.

The video showcases a lot of big names such as Harley Quinn, poison ivy, Two-Face, The Riddler, but most notably scarecrow, who seems to be the game’s main villain. He looks truly villainous in Batman Arkham Knight.

While the main plot looks to be the typical, villain takes over the city, and batman has to save it, while kicking same major ass in the process, the elements and dialog around scarecrow seem to be very well done. A lot of detail has gone into the costumes of, both, Batman himself as well as the villains. The environmental details for the City of Gotham look stunning as well. One of the most noticeable buildings was the GCPD that stood out on many occasions even as Batman was whizzing past it.

The atmosphere of the game and city has a very old school 'dark' feel to it, it is hard to describe, but very similar to the olden day batman movies, while using all the aspects of the current Gen graphics. I am personally very excited to get this game. I don’t pre-order many games, but I just might have to for this one especially since there are already a number of cool bundles you can choose from for the pre-order. There will also be a Limited Edition Batman PlayStation 4 for Arkham Knight shown in the picture below. 

This is a 500 GB PlayStation specially designed with the Arkham Knight Theme that looks absolutely stunning bundled with the game itself of course. If I didn't already own a PS4, this is probably the bundle I would buy.

I think this is one of the most anticipated games of 2015 and might also become one of the best
games in 2015.

The game is set to be officially released on June 23rd, 2015 barring any more setbacks or delays.
