  • Has it been optimised for PC? I remember hearing the first game wasn’t released in a great state

    • it's been a while, but the first game was great from what I recall. They delayed the release on PC to implement physx which meant it was the best platform to play on.

      There was a lot of complaints about the original game because they built in bugs on purpose if you pirated the game. Certain things would just break in the game which were probably seen as "bugs" but were intentional.

      The third game was a nightmare on release, but from what I heard they fixed it up. Personally I put it down and never picked it up again, despite finishing the first two.

    • I've been playing through them recently on steam, but i'm yet to hit Arkham Knight.
      Arkham asylum runs great, not issues running on newer hardware as expected. Arkham city is a painful experience, in particular when flying around the city. Interior locations are fine, and the game looks great inside, but it's a stuttery mess outdoors.
      Doing some research, some are saying to downgrade to an older version of DirectX, but others are saying not to tinker with it because it can ruin the install? It's definitely not hardware based (3900x/2070super), and seems to be because of DirectX

      Arkham Asylum is pretty much the only game in the series that didn't have any widely-reported performance issues and despite being from 2009 still runs flawlessly on modern hardware.

      Arkham City suffered from framerate drops and stuttering when DirectX 11 and PhysX were enabled, but running the game in DirectX 9 mode resolves that for most users.

      It's Arkham Knight (the fourth game in the Arkham series) that was a complete sh*tshow at launch and ran like a dog even on very high-end hardware, forcing Warner Bros. to suspend sales of the game until the issues were resolved. It did take years IIRC, along with the threat of lawsuits for Warner Bros to finally patch the game to the point that it was playable for most users.
