We've been treated to our first proper look at gameplay for the upcoming Gotham Knights today courtesy of IGN, with 16 full minutes of raw gameplay unveiled for the open-world action RPG, which is set to arrive on Xbox on October 25th.
You can check out the footage in the video above, which admittedly was getting a lot of negative feedback from the live chat during the premiere, although impressions since then seem to have eased up at least a little bit.
Some mixed impressions so far, then, but keep in mind that this is still early in-progress footage.
What are your thoughts on this Gotham Knights gameplay? Tell us down in the comments below.
The gameplay looks fun enough, derived from the Arkham games. The voice acting though.....why is most voice acting in games STILL so bad?
I love the batman games so i will definitely play this. I don't buy games at full price so weather it makes a surprise appearance on Game Pass sooner rather than later or I have to pick it up on black friday for $30 bucks I'll just do those. Team cheapskate right here.
@armondo36 Completely agree. The voice acting is not only bad but it feels stitched together from lots of little bits rather than flowing like a conversation. There are so many unnatural pauses between them all in those opening scenes. A real shame as it ruins immersion.
Regardless the rest of it looks fun enough, but nothing that blows me away and says Day 1 buy. I'll wait for reviews and probably play it a little further down the line.
Holy stuttering Batman!!
It's true voice acting is still generally horrendous even in games that are well received. I thought the voice acting and writing was pretty atrocious in Control, yet somehow everyone loved it.
The voice acting in GTA 5 is solid, and one of the reasons I love the Yakuza series is the Japanese voice acting is truly top tier for a game.
Looks good, I hope the story is interesting. Would love for WB to release the Arkham Trilogy remastered for current gen consoles or at least some resolution and FPS patches
I kinda wish WB would move on from the Arkham franchise. Don't get me wrong, I will eat up Suicide Squad when it drops, but after killing Batman off, I don't really feel like playing as the other members of his crew. Honestly I'd like to see Rocksteady take on a non-DC IP, could you imagine if they made a Blade Runner game?
My coworker and I watched and his comment on the first 8 minutes or so, "Is this a walking simulator?" When the fighting started we both liked the grapple hook, but the fighting sequences quickly began to show the same take down moves being used on the same cookie cutter bad guys (so far as we've seen). It's OK. Not breaking any new ground.
This is my most anticipated game of 2022. Can't wait to play it, but i agree that it would be a shame if this game, or any game at all in the future goes to the Avengers/Anthem where you go to a Hub, load a level, beat level and then be forced back into the hub... Or when you are in the level and playing with other people online and they beat the level quick and you dont get to explore at all... That is the more bothersome part of games to me.
@Raffles I think it is 30% that is really top-notch in VA. Among recent games, I played RDR2 was definitely on par with any Hollywood masterpiece. ME Trilogy also has plenty of solid VA.
@PanFriedSoup Technically not a game in the Arkham franchise. It has no relation to Rocksteady's Arkham-verse. It's just a
@BrilliantBill As a matter of fact I played those 2 games recently, and yes they do stand out as having very solid voice acting by VG standards.
I'm really impressed by Mass Effect 1 actually, the overall package is definitely better than I expected. One of the games that lives up to its reputation, and expectations.
Looking pretty good to me
During that detective scene all I could think was...say Langstrom one more time, Barbra!!!!
But it was a tutorial...why would they thing it's a good idea to show the tutorial?!
