This is the fitting conclusion to the epic trilogy with promises of "this is how it happened - this is how Batman died".

As was Evident in 2009's Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady Studios has developed a reputation for interesting and engaging story-telling, and this reputation is upheld in this new release.

The best part about this game is the Batmobile has been introduced for the first time. It's got two modes - pursuit and engage, which, at the flick of a button, transforms the Batmobile into a tank of sorts.

The horror of failure tests Batman at major points throughout the gripping storyline.

With breath-taking open world scenery, Arkham Knight makes us feel as though we have stepped directly into this superhero's polished rubber boots.

Batman: Arkham Knight is available now for the PlayStation4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
