Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham Series has revolutionised the superhero genre of games in recent years, and its latest instalment, Arkham Knight, is nothing short of breathtaking. It has the most extensive and most detailed open world in the series so far and has the Batmobile as a fan-demanded commute, giving Strolling the Nights of Gotham a new perspective. This grand finale brings together Batman’s closest family and supervillains for an excellent endgame.

10 games like Batman Arkham Knight

Mad Max

Mad Max

Mad Max, made by the renowned Avalanche Studios based on the Mad Max Movie franchise, shares many similarities with Arkham Knight’s free-flowing combat, vehicular demolition, and rich open world. Even though the combat was quite similar, it lacked the sheer variety, which is where vehicular combat took over and won the fans. Although it vastly underperformed after launch, the game was still enjoyed by several Mad Max and Action-adventure lovers.

Middle Earth Shadow of War

Middle Earth Shadow of War

Middle Earth Shadow of War is everything Shadow of Mordor was but better. The sequel continues the story of Talion with an improved nemesis system and a much broader scale of combat, with fortress captures being a standout. Like its predecessor, Shadow of War’s combat is inspired by the Arkham series, with button-mashing combos and counter mechanics like the Batman titles, making a wide variety of skills available to players with the drawback of making subduing enemies too easy at times.

Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs, made by Square Enix, is one of the most underrated games of recent years. It has one of the best-looking Hong Kongs in games and is a gripping story from start to end. It has the same combat mechanics as the Batman games and great hand-to-hand and environmental combat, with many learnable attacks and skills as the game progresses.

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima

After the incredible gameplay reveal, people had no idea what to expect from this title. But everything changed after the release as Sucker Punch Productions presented gamers with a samurai game the gaming world had never seen before. The Artistic and serene open world of feudal Japan was one of the best-looking graphical presentations among AAA titles. The combat shared features with the Arkham Games but had a variety of its own in timely attacks, parries, and additional samurai-inspired stealth.

Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn

Not as much for the combat as for the performances and open world, Horizon Zero Dawn is considered the better game, even though the sequel was an upgrade in every possible way. The AI was the most vital point of the title, with every enemy encounter being different, but the character designs and side characters to forget held it back at times.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Syndicate is the ninth instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise and was acclaimed for its fast-paced combat and beautifully detailed London of the 19th Century. Syndicate allowed players to chain together attacks and blocks like the Arkham games, with the parry mechanics also prevalent from the last franchise.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales

Considered a spinoff to the Marvel’s Spider-Man series, Miles Morales takes the story of Miles forward as a build-up to the newly released Marvel’s Spiderman 2. The Arkham series inspires the combat as it has mechanics identical to those of Marvel’s Spiderman.

Marvel’s Spiderman

Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales

Insomniac answered the critics by making it not one of the best Spiderman games but probably one of the greatest superhero games ever. With a varied open world and combat mechanics of attack, dodge, parry, and even stealth sequences, it is visible where Insomniac got its inspiration.

Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption

One of the Greatest Games ever made, Rockstar might not have had inspiration regarding their living, breathing open world from Arkham Knight. Still, they have taken a piece of their combat mechanics as the inclusion of dodge, parry, and grapple speaks for the same and also the vastly reimagined combat based on the same.

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3

The Greatest and Most awarded game of this generation, the Witcher 3, just like Red Dead Redemption 2, has improved its combat inspired by the Arkham games since it has been completely revamped and remade Witcher 2 with the inclusion of a skill-based level-up system and a wide variety of Witcher items to aid the free-flowing hack and slash mechanics.
