As much that i hate downvoting a great game, this titel deserve it.. I'm running a 970 with a i7 4790k and getting 30 FPS and alot of problems (stutter, soundbugs etc). I have waited and was really hyped to play this game and it saddest me too se the PC port be so bad this time around.

(Please read the updates i do in this review if you have some questions or disagreed with me)

Looks like a great history (only 3 hours in the game)
Fun combat system with amazing cool combos
Driving the BATMOBILE :o
Really huge world to play in. Alot of things to do.

Bad performance.
30fps LOCK
Stutter, soundbugs, etc.
Bad looking textures.
Really bad PC port.

Buy this game? If you dont mind the problems atm, i would pick it up BUT not for full price.

Thanks for reading the review. :)

Okay, you can remove the 30FPS lock, by going to your go to this in your steam library:
G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Batman Arkham Knight\Engine\Config

Then double click on "BaseSystemSettings"

Then press ctrl+f and type in "fps" and now you can change that to 60 but i dont recomend going over 60 as it will most likley crash.

I still stand by the review even tho you can remove the 30FPS cap. This is 2015 and a game that release on PC should not have been capped at all.

I know my english isnt good, but that should not stop me from doing this short review. :)

Update 23-06-2015:
I have now talked to a support @nvidia becaruse many have told me that the game have some problems with the GTX 9xx series. Nvidia says that they have a few problems with the cards and i should be fixed ASAP.

Update 23-06-2015:
After i removed the CAP and turn Blur off im getting a steady 60 fps while running around etc. Sadly the FPS drop quite alot when im driving the BATMOBILE or flyving around in Gotham. Textures are still looking bad & many soundbugs still is there. :P

Thanks for a great review; I think this game is on hold by WB (I don't get the option to purchase even if I want to do, which shows how bad some issues are; as such, it's hardly surprising from what you say. And your English is good, I assure you.

put it on a SSD if you have it, at least defrag the HD

@Thuglife_nt, where do you get that idea from? I clearly say in this Review that i like the gameplay in this game. But you may also think about its 2015, and many gamers likes amazing gameplay /W a decent Graphcis. It's not just the graphics that have problems, theres also many bugs, stutter etc, that simpel should not be there. :)

Problem is, people this days only see the game as this... Graphic > Gameplay, and i really dont care about 30 fps in a game...

I must be the odd one out or maybe there is something up with the 970. After removing the 30 fps cap, the game runs perfectly smooth with barely any stuttering / slowdowns and no crashes on my 980 with an i74790k at 4Ghz.

The issue is they locked fps at 30. WTF who does that. I unlocked it in the cfg and now get 90-100 fps on my gtx970 with 4790K

It it was a great game, you wouldn't have to downvote it. Batman Arkham Knight is apparently an example of a bad game.

As great as the previous games were in the series, it is hard to believe how bad this game really is. From a technical stand point. Story wise it's a great game.

Just be careful when changing the .ini file. Apparently if you ever have to verify your game it'll delete it and re-download the entire thing.
