This game is a milestone in its own right. But what built the hype for this game are the previous games in the series. Yes, those games are the pillars of the last game in the series. But let us backtrack a little bit and look at what happened before Arkham Knight.
The game that started it all. Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. It features a young and inexperienced Batman as he faces life changing events in his early career as a crime fighter on his way to becoming the Dark Knight. Batman faces off with the most powerful man in the city and the leader of all of Gotham’s criminal underworld; Black Mask. He sets a huge bounty on Batman, which lures 8 highly dangerous assassins: the strong and powerful Bane; expert marksman Deadshot; mercenary for hire Deathstroke; poisonous contortionist Copperhead, the pyromaniac Firefly; the sparkling Electrocutioner; deformed criminal Killer Croc; and combat expert Shiva.
This game was set 3 months after the events of Arkham Origins. A mysterious explosion at Blackgate Prison allows Joker, Penguin and Black Mask to each gather enough criminals in their crew to take over a portion of the prison. Batman also meets Catwomanin this game and others for the first time, and forges an unlikely alliance with a young Captain Gordon. This game was actually pretty good overall, but did not quite as successful as the other games in the series.
Batman: Arkham Asylum is pretty much the delivery of The Joker to Arkham Asylum. This is one of the best games in the series and pretty much one of the most action packed as Batman gets trapped in Arkham Asylum at the mercy of a horde of super villains. In the asylum, Batman is faced with a very deadly lineup of enemies; he must defend himself from: the very powerful Bane, capture mass serial killer Victor Zsasz, confront the monstrous Killer Croc and defeat the plant master Poison Ivy, and battle his way through hallucinogen-induced nightmares created by the Scarecrow. For Batman fans, this game is well deserved. Taking the Unreal engine for the first time, Rocksteady has gone and made an epic superhero game.
