Gotham Knights takes cues from many games that came before and is similar to many other titles. If you’ve earned the credits on this co-op adventure, there are plenty of others to try that will have you facing off against enemies or delving into the world of Gotham.


10/10 Batman: Arkham Knight

The clearest inspiration Gotham Knights takes is from Rocksteady’s Arkham series. The final game in their trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight, is still holding up surprisingly well, despite being an early title on PS4 and Xbox One. Rocksteady refined its free-flowing combat to a brilliant shine and gives you more tools than you’ve ever had before as the Dark Knight.

Gotham City is also designed for you to drive the Batmobile, which is a transcendent experience. To top things off, it still looks visually incredible, and is in many ways more impressive than Gotham Knights. If you want an experience that makes you “feel like Batman”, this is it.

9/10 Marvel’s Spider-Man

You’ve been living under a rock if you haven’t heard the praises of Marvel’s Spider-Man from Insomniac. This previously exclusive PlayStation exclusive puts you in the shoes of Peter Parker as he glides through Manhattan, stopping crimes every day and dealing with a variety of super-powered villains.

The level of sophistication and craftsmanship in this game is simply impressive. Coupled with a swinging system that feels crisp and easy to get into, there’s a lot to love. If you’re in the mood for a good story, don’t worry. You have this game covered there as well. Be sure to play the remastered version to take advantage of ray tracing and unlimited frame rates.

8/10 Marvel’s Avengers

While Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix’s Avengers game wasn’t the stuff of legend, there are still plenty of gamers who enjoy it for what it is. Just like Gotham Knights, you have multiple characters to control and upgrade independently, with separate items and equipment you can craft for them.

Marvel’s Avengers is focused on more linear missions, so the focus is almost always on the fight. Furthermore, if you’re hooked on Marvel’s Avengers, there’s plenty of content to keep you busy, with the additions of Hawkeye, Black Panther, Jane Foster and more to bolster your playtime.

7/10 Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War got a lot of deserved bad press when it came out. The game was balanced around microtransactions, which directly contrasted the game and the world. But Monolith and Warner Bros ironed out these kinks and reworked the game to create a surprisingly competent power fantasy set in Tolkien’s Middle-Earth.

If you’re a die-hard The Lord of the Rings fan, you might not like the creative liberties taken with the lore, but if you’re just looking for a fun time with razor-sharp combat, then look no further.

6/10 Assassin’s Creed Origins

If crafting new gear, taking on villains that get stronger as the game progresses, and slowly exploring a vast world is what got you hooked on Gotham Knights, then Assassin’s Creed Origins could be your next game. While there have been complaints about the modern games in the series with Odyssey and Valhalla, Origins remains a diamond in the rough.

The game wastes no time putting you in Bayek’s shoes and letting you play. Ancient Egypt is a well realized open world packed with characters to meet and people to take down. On top of that, it’s a great starting point for newcomers as it goes through how Assassins came to be.

5/10 Watchdogs 2

The appeal of Gotham Knights lies in controlling powerful vigilantes to bring justice to the criminals who are ravaging the city. In Watch Dogs 2 you will too, but with a twist: hacking will be your primary method of attack.

Watch Dogs 2 is a game of rebellion by nature, allowing you to wreak havoc at will. The amount of options is impressive, with you can hack vehicles, computers, weapons and more. The first game was considered a disappointment by many, but Ubisoft ironed out many of these issues for the sequel.

4/10 Cyberpunk 2077

Gotham City has been adapted in a few different ways, but some elements remain the same: it’s full of crime, it has a dystopian feel, and there are people with crazy powers roaming the streets. For these reasons, you may also be interested in Cyberpunk 2077.

While its launch was full of bugs, problems and unfulfilled promises, CD Projekt Red has turned it into a functional game where many will praise it as one of the most immersive RPGs of its time. Although it’s a much more in-depth game than Gotham Knights, it’s clear that there’s something enticing about it that has appealed to so many players.

3/10 Injustice 2

Injustice 2 is a fighting game, so you won’t be chasing bad guys or roaming the streets of Gotham. However, it’s baked entirely in the DC Comics world, so you’ll meet a lot of familiar faces. Red Hood, Robin, Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze and more are all represented in this list.

The game’s content has been completed for many years now, including the likes of Sub-Zero, Hellboy and Ninja Turtles. This means it’s cheap and easy to dive in. Even if you’re not interested in battling other players, the campaign is meaty enough to make it worth the low price of entry.

2/10 LEGO Batman

There have been a total of three LEGO Batman games and one LEGO DC Super-Villains game. However, for Gotham Knights fans, we have to recommend the first game. LEGO Batman keeps the focus on the Caped Crusader, his allies and his adversaries without introducing other members of DC Comics.

It’s an homage to everything people loved about the character up to that point. Once again, you’ll also get to play as Nightwing, Robin and Batgirl on the streets of Gotham. It’s also a villain story where you get to play as some of the biggest antagonists in comics.

1/10 Division 2

There are several games that allow players to team up and tackle missions together like in Gotham Knights. For your money, however, The Division 2 might be the next title you want to look into. This game takes place in Washington DC after a deadly virus was released. DC is an open world that you and your friends can explore and find missions to tackle. Sounds familiar?

But instead of beating bad guys with your fists, you’ll be using rifles, shotguns and more. Despite this style of play being oversaturated, The Division 2 has received extremely good reviews and has plenty of content to keep you and your friends busy for months.
