With distal scores ranging from 95 to 40, there’s something going on here that carries the anatomy even deeper.

He wrote that Gotham Knights features “an excellent story with top-notch directing and a fun combat system, with lots of unnecessary and confusing mechanics installed on top. If you can get past them, there’s a really great game here.”
detective gameMatt Miller similarly felt, scoring the game 7.25, and noted, “The Gotham Knights didn’t amaze me with their all-too-familiar goals, fights, and activities, but they didn’t leave me sour. It’s fun to control some of the new game heroes as they contemplate Gotham from the overhanging building and uncover hidden plots against its people”.
on the lower end, giving it a 5/10, IGN“The Gotham Knights are a consistently disappointing return to the turbulent city of Batman and a distinct step back from the past decade plus Batman games,” wrote Travis Northup, “from inconsistent frame rates, to poor story, to one – note the combat that It’s seldom good, there was always something going wrong to make sure I didn’t suffer the triumphant comeback with my friends by my side that I had envisioned.”
VGCJordan Midler praised the game, giving it a 4/5, writing: “The Gotham Knights provide the blueprint for a world of great Batman-verse games outside of Arkham. While it may not quite reach the heights of the Rocksteady series in some aspects, the ways it excels in narrative and development character, or in some cases superseding the Arkham series, proving that she deserves, fittingly, that she deserves to wear the bonnet.”
finally, GamesRadar +Josh West also scored the score 5/10, noting that “there’s a compelling gameplay in the Gotham Knights, but it’s hidden behind a chaotic UX, unnecessary customization and crafting systems, and combat mechanics that have been thinly stretched to accommodate four heroes.”

At the end of the day, only you can tell if that’s going to be a deal breaker in terms of your enjoyment or not. But for what it’s worth, we think there are enough good things here to warrant throwing the dice.
