The only thing that bothers me about Arkham Knight is the lack of boss fights.

In all 3 of the previous Arkham games the boss fights were what I loved the most. Most of them were very fun and original. I think my favorite was the superb Mr Freeze battle in Arkham Origins (I think?)

But yeah, boss fights. I miss them.

Freeze was arkham city, but yes, it was a great fight.

Batman Arkham Knight is disappointing in a lot of ways, but it doesn't ale much for it to still be one of the best superhero games of all time.

I think Arkham Knight is a fitting send-off to the best superhero series ever made, i really enjoyed the ending.

I've mentioned this before, but Arkham Knight was dissapointing. While it was miles ahead of other licensed properties, the game lacked flavor, for a lack of a better word. Arkham City just felt -edgy-, and the uniqueness of each zone made traversal so incredibly exciting. Arkham Knight had a beautifully rendered city that was incredibly detailed, but I didn't feel as connected to it as I should have. The lack of boss battles, a primary story that was uninteresting until the very end, and middling side missions made for a game that felt like it was going through the motions, and not doing a victory lap. Regardless, the combat is rock solid, and the game's lore is so deep and respected, it's hard not be impressed by their efforts. I still hold Arkham City as the best licensed game I've ever played, and just like the batman films, it's a high bar to clear.

As much as I would like to disagree with you, I can't. Everything you said is true. I'm not so sure I would necessarily say they were going through the motions with this one, because you can still see all the heart that was put into it. I think I would say that they just made a couple of poor decisions. No boss fights being the biggest one.

However, I still enjoyed the side missions, Azrael's side missions were kind of fun, and so was the one where you track the serial killer, although again, i can't disagree with you because even the side missions were just the same thing repeated multiple times, even though they were all very different from each other.

But the level of detail and the effort put into the game still shows as well as the attention to the backstory and Batman mythos. (I am disappointed that in the entire series we never got to have Ventriloquist and Scarface have their own subplot lol) So yeah, i'll stick with that. A couple of poor decisions. :)
