An epic end to a legendary batman series by rocksteady

This game is a very good game tedious at times but overall great. I feel its rating is a bit harsh sure there is blood and one or two violent interrogations but nothing new for this series. I would say this is okay for kids aged 13 and over. It has mild language but lets face it your kid knows worst language and has seen worse.

Cmon, it’s not that bad

Don’t let the 18 rating put you off, it’s a load of rubbish and you know it. Each of the previous rocksteady Arkham games have their one violent scene and the rest is relatively PG-13. Well this game doesn’t have its one violent scene. I was reluctant to let my 12 year old play it as I was indeed put off by the 18 rating, but I played it and it was fine. It deals with more adult themes than the past games, like suicide, torture and it even focuses on mental health more than the others. It does seem intended for a more mature audience, but that doesn’t make it less child friendly if you know what I mean. It’s y far the worst game in the Arkham series with the boring, repetitive batmobile fights, but it’s still good. Get it and enjoy it.
