Available On: Android, iOS
GameLoft has released The Dark Knight Rises on Google Play for $6.99 today in conjunction with the release of the film here in the United States. If your ready to fight crime and race the streets of Gotham City in Batman’s Batcycle and his Aircraft, “The Bat.” If you haven’t heard of Gameloft before, they actually make some decent substantial games for Android and iOS devices. Some of their titles include, “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “Assassins Creed”.
The Dark Knight Rises ties in with the film’s story and also adds some fun gameplay into the mix. For $6.99 it’s really not a bad game and you’ll get your monies worth. Obviously the writing won’t be as good as the film, so if you were expecting that, you may be disappointed. You have to keep in mind that this also just released today, so it may be buggy on some phones and also may not be fully compatible with Jelly Bean yet.
I should also mention that because of the games crazy graphics and thrilling gameplay, it’s going to take 2GB’s to download. I would highly suggest making sure you don’t download this over your data connection and just do the download over a Wi-Fi connection. Downloading that big of a file means it will also be on your SD Card or internal phone storage, so make sure you have enough space to store it before downloading otherwise you’ll have to re-download it after clearing up space and/or getting a new SD card.
Some users have also reported on some devices that the graphics are glitchy and sometimes pink colors fly across the screen. Hopefully a patch to fix this issue will be out very soon.
For it’s genre, The Dark Knight Rises is a fantastic game, I still think my favorite is the Great Big War Game, which I reviewed yesterday if you want to give it a look.
I feel like since I’ve mainly talked about this game on Android devices that it’s also important to note that the game is available on iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod and etc. The only downside to this is that the game lags like crazy and constantly crashes, some users have reported over on the iTunes store.
Anyone played this game yet? Do you like it? Have you seen the movie yet?
