Critic Reviews for Batman: Arkham VR

Being Batman in Akrham VR is a great way to more intimately experience Rocksteady's universe and to search for clues in this brief mystery. However, the world and characters around you are largely rigid and unresponsive to your actions, which leaves a lot on the table for a game about a character known as much for his brawn as he is for his brains.

Rocksteady keeps its reputation intact with one of the finest games to launch with PSVR.

The best tech demo so far for PlayStation VR, but with some better storytelling it could also have been a good game in its own right.

A brilliant slice of Bat action that lets you make the most of being the World’s Greatest Detective. Don the cowl. It’s worth every penny...

Even without character movement, Rocksteady shows us that Batman in VR can be an empowering experience. More, please!

More of a VR experiment than a game, Batman: Arkham VR is light on gameplay but full of moments that will leave a lasting impression.

You can't come up with a more intriguing VR premise than "Batman simulator," and developer Rocksteady has done their best to make it work. But despite how cool it is to simply exist in Gotham, the limited interactions and dumbed-down puzzles make the experience feel much less confident than it should be.

If Rocksteady is prepping me for what's to come with Batman: Arkham VR, I'm sold already. A massive amount of time was spent on this project, and anyone who calls it a mere tech demo is doing it a disservice.
