If you like the Arkham series this game is for you. It's the third installment after Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I discovered it on PS now after I've played Batman: Arkham Asylum. I recommend you play at least one of the two previous games before that one. The combat is very similar to the previous entry in the series and you never get tired of it. It's an open world action-adventure. You're in the vast city of Gotham on Christmas eve and there's trouble. You play as a younger less-refined Batman which is prone to violent behavior. I loved the story but it's short. The online part of the game I couldn't play as it was not available anymore in 2020. The side missions were really fun and searching for Enigma's data packs was something worth doing because of all the different things you had to do to get to them. I recommend this game it's super entertaining!
But while it's not the best game in the series its still enjoyable and worth playing if liked to fight supervillains and criminals as Batman. The one thing I think that this game did do better than the other Arkham games was the boss fights, they were actually enjoyable and a bit challenging too.
