However, while players are giving Suicide Squad a thumbs up, there’s a unanimous sentiment that the hefty $70 price tag is a steep demand for an experience that is significantly watered down in comparison to Rocksteady’s last game—Arkham Knight.

Many players express satisfaction with certain aspects of the title such as its gameplay but aren’t shy about pointing out its shortcomings. The point of commonality among these reviews seems to be repetitive encounters. Despite the positive reception, players are quick to acknowledge that the gameplay loop could use some diversification to elevate the overall experience lest the game fails to last its 13 planned seasons.

Another notable point is the industry-wide shift toward live service models. Rocksteady seems to have trapped itself in the GaaS ecosystem due to WB‘s goals of going “always online.” As a result, players have expressed their dissatisfaction with the continued transition of renowned studios, hailed for crafting premium single-player experiences moving towards bland, generic looter-shooters.

Kill The Justice League takes place five years after Arkham Knight.

In contrast to these positive testimonials, Suicide Squad is sitting in the 60s range on Metacritic based on over 20 reviews. It’s worth mentioning that the majority of players predicted this score before the game’s launch. This discrepancy between player and critic opinions emphasizes the divide in perspectives, lending credence to the fact that an individual can always enjoy a game panned by critics, be it deserved or otherwise.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League launched on February 2, 2024, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC after several delays. It suffered from numerous leaks up to its release, shrouding the full plot under a veil of uncertainty that’ll only be lifted as new seasons are rolled out.
