Most disappointing game I have played in years.
It’s been over a year or maybe longer since we’ve been covering news and building self hype for Gotham Knights. At the time, it appeared to be a 4 player Batman Arkham Asylum type game. First major disappointment was revealed earlier this year that the game is only 2 players co-op. This was kinda mumbled under the developer’s breath. I think that the appearance of it being a 4 player game was done on purpose. First of all, the game features 4 characters. In this day and age, why would we not think it could be 4 players. Eventually the devs stated that they couldn’t do a 4 player co-op because it would be too complicated. Fine. I’ll try it out with just 1 friend. I figured I could at least have the experience of an Arkham Asylum with 1 buddy right. Well that turned out to be one of the worst experiences I’ve had in gaming in years.
This game controls like you’re trying to roll a big giant square around a room and none of the buttons or your actions seem to match up with what you would think should be happening on screen. I’m talking about getting so frustrated that I would just close the app because I was so frustrated that I couldn’t even get over a few street thugs. I’d run up to a police car, expecting to vault over and Red Hood would just dead stop with 0 animation. The cops begin to engage me, I can’t move. I have to walk the character backwards and turn him to get around the car. I don’t get it, I run up to the car and no button presses do anything. I’m raging at this moment. I’m already at the end of my attempts at playing this game and I feel like the controls are just not working for me. The dead stop kills me. I can’t push around the vehicle, the vaulting is automatic, the jump button doesn’t work, I can’t roll backwards. Jesus, my frustration grows just writing about it now.
