Ultimately, Tucker argues, the game is a “pretty solid package, but gotham knights it just feels a little cheap. Movement feels a bit clunky, stealth feels poorly implemented, especially coming from a studio that worked on a Arkham game, and it really feels like it worked with a few more coats of paint.”
