Batman: Arkham VR launched originally in late 2016 as a PSVR exclusive. When it launched on PC in April of this year, the game’s already impressive visuals were able to shine even brighter on more powerful PC hardware.
Though the game bears the Arkham name, it isn’t a stealthy beat-em-up like the other games of the series, instead focusing more on Batman’s detective work, light puzzle solving, and exploring the lore of the Arkham universe. Rocksteady did a good job of creating interesting ways to interact with the world of Batman:
In our review of the game on PSVR, we gave Batman: Arkham VR an 8 out of 10:
Batman: Arkham VR plays like a long demo with highly detailed and immersive environments and fun (if one-dimensional) gameplay. For Rocksteady’s first attempt at a VR game, Arkham VR is a solid foundation for what we hope will be future episodic installments. What the game lacks in mobility and action it makes up for in storytelling and satisfying object interaction. Overall Arkham VR is a taste of the potential virtual reality can offer the series, but leaves us wanting more varied gameplay.
As you can see, one of our critiques at the time was the game’s length, but with the sale, the price:value ratio appears much more favorable.
