Gaming Masters's Reviews
An interesting and unique entry to the Batman universe
The main point that The Assembly let’s itself down is that it is really short. A game costing as much as it does should have extended the playtime by a few more hours. It took me just over 3 hours to finish and that was with me taking my time to explore every nook and cranny of the game. When it was over I didn’t expect it would be over that quickly. I didn’t want it to be over.
In Summary, if you are looking for a fighting game on PS4 this year, pick it up as it's good fun even though complicated in places. The graphics are a generation behind, however, this doesn't really effect the gameplay at all. If you are looking for a story mode, I would avoid King of Fighters XIV as it's too shallow to be worth £50 unless you have played the previous games.
In conclusion multiplayer at its core is good but some serious overhauls are needed to be made, especially in regards to the Faction war, matchmaking and game modes. The story aspect of the game is fantastic, it is both engaging and fun to play, with lots of colourful characters to meet along the way.
