The Dark Knight Rises. The Caped Crusader has come a long way since his early ventures into the world of video gaming, with the likes of Ocean's Batman still holding up as classics but which show how the character has developed. This is the third game in the recent franchise which showed just how good superhero games can be, and although this isn't much of a progression from Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, it's still a fine experience. The story is perhaps the best thing here, a complex, multi-layered tale that, as the name suggests, delves into Batman's early ventures in crime fighting, and which finds him on the trail of a murderer, while also being targeted by several rather terrifying assassins. A veritable rogues' gallery of famous names pops up along the way, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you hooked. The gameplay is largely unchanged from the earlier games, but with even more of an open-world feel, as you zoom around Arkham, duffing up bad guys, using lots of cool gadgets and completing side challenges. It's this element of familiarity which is the game's biggest fault, as there really isn't anything new here over the previous games. However, if you can ignore this fact, there's still a huge amount of fun to be had. The free-flow combat is still as meaty and satisfying as ever, while the city certainly looks stunning thanks to some impressive design work. The story is a strong one, with excellent writing for the most part, and although it stumbles a little, it is undeniably the game's high point. Overall, this is an entertaining, if unoriginal, offering, but one which fans will lap up.
