    I think that should integrate more melee attacks with red hood as he’s not just a gunslinger and actually more hand to hand combative

    Not a big fan of Nightwing having a tech glider. I’d definitely prefer him to have his traditional underarm wings to glide like Batman. I hope that’s an option.

    I think the movement should be more realistic and not what I'm witnessing right now. I love the fact that Arkham Knight fully immersed you into stealth and you could play with batmans gadgets. This needs to be like that

    Red Hood needs to have more melee combat included into his gameplay so they could incorporate the crowbar that he uses in the comics and it helps speak on his character as well as makes a perfect reference to the way in which he was killed plus it still works with how he's a tank of the team.

    • mysterio902101
      mysterio902101 6 days ago +1

      @VVS LINK YT in terms height he's mean to be the biggest robin 6 feet plus in the game they have him as the tank of the team so they must've gone with a more muscular body type to represent his role and play style being the heavy hitter.

      @TheKira708 exactly if they keep Red Hood's gameplay that limited people that would want to play as him will be put off and just play as the other characters because his gameplay will start to feel too repetitive.

    I know this is an early build and I know it is a separate property, but I can't stop comparing it to the Arkham series, and it has it outclassed in basically every way. I'm definitely going to wait until reviews start coming in.

      @phil HAHAHA! Wow! You really wanna go there? Fine I can go there too. Everyone thought Arkham Knight was boring, and I think even you thought it was boring, but you're pretending to like it because you either just like Batman or you like Rocksteady. Don't come here and start acting like you know me. Sure the combat and stealth was great, which honestly made me dislike the game even more because they made so many improvements of an already great game mechanics, only to have them feel like a side activity while you spend 70% of the game inside a tank.
      I have no real opinion on this game yet, but unlike many other people here, I'm gonna wait until I've tried it myself before I judge it. Arkham Knight has been out for years now, more than enough time for me to form an opinion on it. And in my opinion is: It's the worst game of the Rocksteady Arkham games.

    • phil
      phil 7 days ago +1

      @Venom Rules All dude listen to that dialogue in the clocktower, its not just the combat that feels stunted here. Also the bat tank looks more enjoyable to use than a motorcycle that everyone just shares lol. Arkham knight wasnt boring for anyone, i dont even think you thought it was boring honestly. Just seems like youre trying to defend this game for whatever reason.

    • TheSenSx
      TheSenSx 13 hours ago

      Yes exactly. The movements in combats seem off, they way the character has to walk to get close enough to the ennemy and be able to land the attacks. The transition between the walk stance and the close combat movements feels not very fluid. Also the dodges animations do not feel as contextual as in the other Arkham games, they felt like the same typical roll or flip. I understand they need to change the combat system from the previous games, so I hope once we have the controller in hand it will be better. And hopefully Batman will be unlockable at the end (and not a paid dlc haha) and will bring back the counters (which would be a lot of work for one character...but it's Batman !).

    Idk I'm probably still gonna get the game but at this point, I'll be waiting for reviews or a sale. The story looks neat and I like the idea of having the Bat Family as the character roster, but I'm a bit iffy on the gameplay. Not terrible, but janky.

    Tony, The Stark 13 days ago +83

    The fighting seems really slow and not as fluid as what were used to have. That kinda kills the mood for me. The way you could chain movements and attacks in the Arkham games made the fighting so satysfying an rewarding. This just feels like im gonna avoid the fighting as much as I can, if I ever get the game.

    • RDR2 Old Boy

      another thing that should be illegal is pre order bonuses. it should be a illegal practice. if your game is good people should be allowed to by the game day 1 and not have a tiny piece of the game taken out cause thats what it is. you shouldnt be able to take a piece of the game out and say hey you cant have this unless you pre order and gamble on weather the game will be good or not

    I’d like it if each character had a unique mobility feature, as that would provide an actual reason to other characters over others (character diversity). Like if Red Hood were to be the only one with a vehicle like a militarised motorcycle, like how Batman had his batmobile. Night wing would have insane parkour attributes jumping high leaping and parkouring on top of buildings, robin would have gliding as hes the only one with cape etc. All of them would have grappling hooks though, there just needs to be some more uniqueness that would make you second guess which character to play for the specific mission as it requires that specific type of role or things that would be useful for that mission. It’d also opt for decisions to combo 2 different characters to tackle that specific type of mission.

      @Booper Dooper I’m a game developer, whatever I say isn’t going to have a guarantee of happening that’s why I said “etc.” referring to Batgirl, I was simply giving an example. I’m not going to bother trying to figure out a whole concept of BatGirl

      That’s what I’m saying! But I think they’re trying to morph the characters into “RPG Stereotypes”

      Not a fan if you ask me

      When a game has been in development for this long, and it looks like this, tells me all I need to know.

    the “mystical leap” function looks super goofy i’ll be honest. if they wanted to somehow incorporate magical/mystical elements to red hood’s character, they could’ve just given him the all-blades as a melee combat option instead. the jumping feature seems a bit useless too, considering he can grapple just fine. the visual effects are also too conspicuous i think idk

  • Kuraiomo
    Kuraiomo 6 days ago +12

    I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand I'm glad they are changing things, on the other hand, this game feels like it, unfortunately, goes into the same direction many games go towards nowadays. Another action oriented game for teens. And I understand that. Games have to sell, and games in this style seems to sell well, but I will sure miss that heavy athmosphere and art direction from arkham series. Also. I know it's just first look, but does not enemies seem kinda passive? Again, another trope of games in this style.

  • Jérôme Branchet
    Jérôme Branchet 14 days ago +12

    Art direction seems fine, but I'm worried about the gameplay. Nightwing's moves seem a bit too stiff. And while I'm not as upset as some about Red Hood's soul jumps, his ranged attacks seem totally bland and ineffective and quite frankly not a great deal of fun.

  • Jose Tomas Campos Robledano

    So is this a Spiritual successor to the Arkham games or an “In-universe” sequel?

    Redhood is one of my favorite characters but in this game hes just way too much gun he doesn't have enough hand-to-hand combat. Arkham Knight did this perfectly they managed to combine the guns and the hand-to-hand combat beautifully now guns is all he does and that is not fun

    One tiny detail I wish was payed attention to is when the characters are in their normal 'civilian' clothes they still move all stiff. I know it would be too much extra work to add a while separate walk/run cycle while in what essentially is just a other model skin would be too much. Just a little thought that it would be cool lol to give the characters more ... character.

  • Dark Legend

    Definitely not as hyped as I was when they first announced this game. And even when Gotham Knights gets released after the final developments, I'm sure it won't even be close to the level of the Arkham games. So, I'll wait to see the reviews once it's released. But, I'm not gonna waste money on pre-ordering something that isn't worth it.

      Lol it’s probably a game journalist lol am joking but man it goes to show that the developers do not know the mechanics which means this game is soo bad that they can’t even play there own game I don’t know if you seen this a long time ago I was watching the release of the Batman Arkham knight demo trailer and man ,the person who was playing in the gameplay has some really smooth gliding experience and combat experience.

    When a game has been in development for this long, and it looks like this, tells me all I need to know. Ignoring the meh graphics and the framerate, I know it’s too late in the development cycle to change the gameplay, tone and general aesthetics. By all means, I’d like to be proven wrong, but I know I won’t be.

      Combat is not going to change, is it what it is. When fromsoftware released beta tests of elden ring. The combat was finished, it was given over to the player base to test it. Same with team ninja when they gave betas of Nioh 2. They created the combat and wanted feed back to refine it

    I thought they were gonna take the gameplay style from your typical Batman game, but they're making an entirely new one.
    It does look a little unpolished in certain areas, like that framerate dip during the fight with that big dude. Kinda indicates that this needs more time in the oven.
    That RPG system looks dogshit though, PLEASE remove that dump.

  • Grimm Ashley
    Grimm Ashley 4 days ago +5

    Already very happy to see they toned down the UI after people's first reactions, that means they're paying attention, but the combat could use some work. I LOVE the design of some of the suits, but I'm hoping they'll actually try and pack more references to the characters with different suits like Spider-Man rather than just cool redesigns with better stats.
    As cool as Jason Todd is though, I don't feel like his mystic jump makes any sense whatsoever. Dick's trapeze glider feels very in-character and clever, Tim's Watchtower teleportation feels like a bit of a stretch, but I can work with it, but Jason just magically jumping on air feels so out of place.
    Overall, I think if they can keep listening to what people are saying, the game's development is on a good trajectory, but they really need to work on bringing the whole world of Gotham into this, not just a bunch of sidequests. I want to see more of the Batman lore, both serious and zany, as a part of this.

  • Danial Ashfiq
    Danial Ashfiq 14 days ago +537

    They should probably decrease the range of the counter/attack. Seeing nightwing backflip half the building to hit an enemy once and then backflip again to the other enemy is pretty jarring. It makes sense with ranged characters like red hood but not cqc characters

    Was hyped for this one until this demo. Looking more and more like marvels Avengers. Fingers crossed the combat gets smoothed out and has that more ‘free flow’ look found in older Arkham games. I love the source material too much not to give it a go though. Going to wait on reviews here.

    The Batfamily comics tend to be more on the realistic side of comics. I suggest the fighting styles of Nightwing and Red Hood should be Martial Arts from Real Life.

    I take the graphics with a grain of salt since it’s still in development but red hood ‘soul stepping’ is a bit of a reach for me.
    As is the combat. I like the concepts they’ve gone with but it seems really clunky. With all these characters already available to play as in Arkham knight you’d expect some inspiration of play style. (Yes, I know they’re not from the same continuity)
