Batman: Arkham Knight released today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Early reviews have doused it in critical acclaim, and from my own review-in-progress it’s a beautifully put together experience. There’s just one problem – the PC version runs like a bag of dead penises floating in a river of bubbling pus.
Capped at 30 frames-per-second (unless you edit the game files), suffering sound drops and visual stuttering, Arkham Knight is seeing reported problems on all manner of systems, no matter the specifications. Rocksteady itself has tried to answer concerns, but the reaction from PC users has been understandably angry. What else is there to do but METABOMB one’s way to justice?
Metacritic user reviews for the PC version stand at an average score of 1.6/10, with an overwhelming 419 negative reviews versus 65 positive. As always, I’ve selected the choicest reviews from furious amateur critics, from the righteous to the ridiculous. Enjoy!
