Batman: Arkham Knight was released almost nine years ago, but it can still give a light to modern releases, as demonstrated by blogger NikTek with the example of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which will be released in the coming days.
Although Batman: Arkham Knight and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League were made by the same team (Rocksteady Studios), it is impossible to objectively compare their gameplay – Batman and members of the Suicide Squad are controlled too differently.
At the same time, Gotham from Batman: Arkham Knight and Metropolis from Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, despite the difference in size, provide a much fairer platform for direct comparison.
As NikTek noted in a five-minute video, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is frankly inferior to Batman: Arkham Knight in many visual (lighting, character models, animation) and even sound aspects.
In an 8-year-old game, the city is filled with atmospheric details and sounds, which cannot be said about the new product from Rocksteady. The water also looks better in Batman: Arkham Knight – in this regard, Arkham Knight surpassed Gotham Knights in its time.
Viewers agreed that Batman: Arkham Knight looks better than Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, despite the almost 9-year age difference. “Suicide Squad: The End of Rocksteady”— paraphrased title of the new game Chichi Michi.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be released on February 2 on PC (Steam, EGS), PS5, Xbox Series X and S, but those who pre-ordered the expanded edition received access to the game ahead of time (even though the launch did not go according to plan).
