Set before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, comes an adventure featuring Batgirl before her incident that left her paralyzed and forced to become Oracle. Batgirl: A Matter of Family takes place on a confined island that has Gotham City looming in the distance, not all that unlike Arkham Asylum. Though, what gadgets you start with in A Matter of Family, is what you end with. Lasting only an hour and some change, the short time spent playing as Batgirl goes by too quickly for it to be a meaningful add-on, and is a shame for being Batgirl’s debut in Rocksteady’s series.
“I am vengeance. I am the night. I am tired of the Batmobile.” – These are words not spoken by the Dark Knight, but by me. The Batmobile isn’t the most egregious thing to ever grace a videogame, but Batman: Arkham Knight leans heavily on the usage of it. Though not everything to do with the Batmobile is bad, just the sequences that require the tank mode. Beyond that, gliding or driving through the entirety of Gotham City is an exhilarating and exciting take on this making you really feel like Batman.
