Pre-Trailer Thoughts: Batman is back with Rocksteady at the helm? Oh happy day! –Logan J. Fowler

Rate the Trailer (1-5): Five. If this were a movie trailer, I’d see this opening day. Thomas Wayne, father of Bruce, narrates from the afterlife, leaving all his belongings to his son, detailing him not to spend on fancy cars (as the Batmoblie comes into view) or outrageous clothes (as Bruce Wayne puts on his “suit’). The cut scene looks incredible, showing us Two Face, Penguin, and Harley Quinn, all up to no good. Batman races into his city to show them a thing or two, as only he can. What more can I say? Honestly, this looks fantastic. Then again, it is only a cutscene. Hopefully the in game stuff delivers just as much. — LJF

Rate the Trailer (1-5): Five. Logan pretty much said what I was going to see so I’ll point out the emphasis on the Batmobile. Will we finally be able to drive the Batmobile around Gotham? That would be amazing. Also, let’s not forget that Two-Face will play a big part in this game. I just hope that Rocksteady didn’t go back on the hints that they gave in Arkham City. I really want to see a version of Hush who is wearing Bruce Wayne’s face and is ruining his reputation at every turn. –Scott Clifford

Buy, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Undecided. The push to own a PS4 becomes even higher now, thanks to Rocksteady delivering the final chapter in the Batman trilogy on this next gen systems only. Reviews will show the truth, but as for right now, if I ever get a PS4, this will be on my “must own” list. The previous entries in the series have been severely awesome. I can only assume the finale would deliver in spades. We will see. –LJF

Buy, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Buy. I’m a huge geek and own a ps4 already but buy it anyway. Find a friend who has a system and play it at their house if you have to. –SC
