Completed 100%! And what a pain it was.
Seriously, I have almost nothing but gripes with Arkham Knight. So, I'll start with the good:
The hand-to-hand combat is as fun as ever, as is all the stealthy stuff. The new improvements; Fear Multi Takedown and the Team Fights, are great. They're done right, meaning that they're new things, but they're simple, easy to learn and pretty small as far as changes go, so it doesn't feel like they're there to steal the spotlight from the old stuff, but instead to fit in and make the game just a little bit more fun.
That's the good stuff. Now the bad:
The Batmobile. It just has to mentioned first and everyone who has played the game knows why (though it seems like everyone else knows too). Arkham Knight is like a compilation of two games: The Batman game and The Tank game. The first one is good old Batman action and the second one is some game nobody's heard of and nobody wants to play, but they have to, because otherwise they can't play the Batman game, even though the Tank game has nothing to do with the Batman game and isn't anything like it. So yeah, like everyone, I hate the Batmobile. It's boring and you have to use it way too much. Destroying sixty tanks with it on the hard difficulty is one of the most frustrating gaming experiences I've had.
My second gripe is the writing. The story is surprise-free and clichéd and frankly, just plain boring. The characters are the same as they've ever been: The Riddler is the Riddler, Two-Face is Two-Face, Catwoman is Catwoman, Batman is Batman and the Joker is the fucking the Joker, even though he's dead (they just can't make a Batman game without him). They do what they've always done and they don't develop as characters. The Scarecrow is an odd one though; he doesn't feel like the Scarecrow from Arkham Asylum at all, he's more like a copy of Hugo Strange from Arkham City. And then, of course, there's the Arkham Knight himself, who is just completely uninteresting, mainly because his only line is: "I'm gonna kill you, Batman!"
The third thing that bugs me is the treatment and place of women in the game (a thing that annoys me in the previous Arkham games as well). The Arkham Knight has three notable female characters. Two of them are wearing ridiculously sexualized outfits (seriously, couldn't Catwoman at least pull the zipper all the way up on her skintight leather suit) and one of them is reduced to a damsel-in-distress, just so Bats and old Jimbo can have some BIG DRAMA! The damsel-in-distress also gets killed (not really) so the male hero can beat himself up for failing to do a man's job.
Speaking of the hero, I hate him. I hate Batman. He's a hypocritical bully, who thinks it's okay to crack every bone in a criminal's body, and thus probably causing life-long health problems, as long as you don't kill the guy. This wouldn't be a bad thing, if he wasn't the hero. Sure, sometimes the idea of Batman being somewhat of a bad guy is toyed with, but in the end, he will always be good; a man who knows better than everyone else, because he is better than everyone else. I actually feel a bit sick every time I have to scare one of Riddler's henchmen to give me information and then strike them unconscious.
And also, there are no boss fights in the game. What's up with that?
