The recent Batman games released on Xbox and Playstation have been very popular indeed. The latest version of the Arkham Origins series has landed on home consoles and Vita recently. The Vita gets its very own effort that is a departure from the home console releases. Set before the events of Arkham Asylum, we follow Batman as he attempts to subdue and bring under control a rebellion - led by some of the series' more memorable baddies - from inside Blackgate prison.

The Vita version is a Metroidvania affair, a 2.5D game where you explore the map and unlock gadgets which make once unattainable areas open to you - think games such as Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. You make use of Batman's sizeable arsenal of tools to traverse each section of the map: Batarangs, zipwires, Batclaw, explosive gels, etc. If you've played the other games beforehand you'll be familiar with all the weapons on show. As you progress through the game you will unlock weapon upgrades and find hidden crates and clues that allow you to wear different costumes and boost our hero's physical and defensive stats.

Graphically the game is a bit of a mixed bag. Batman and the environment look spot on, at least on a par with some earlier PS3 games. Baddies, however, look horrendous up close - and every time a fight is brought to a close you get a zoomed in finishing move that exposes a terrible lack of detail in them. The curves of their bodies look somehow unnatural and the textures on them are pretty low res. Although the bosses (Joker, Penguin, etc) look some way better, there was, in my opinion, still room for brushing them up and improving their looks. The cut-scenes were a bit of a let down with static comic-style images of the main characters floating about with no animation whatsoever.

Good entertainment helped kill hours on the plane and more, a little restricted with movements yet really enjoyed it

Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.

Batman games are like pizza: even when they’re not very good, they’re still pretty good. Next to Arkham City, Arkham Origins is a bit of a disappointment in its lack of new ideas and use of win buttons, making it the least interesting of the trilogy. But as excuses to dive back into the excellent free-flowing combat and predator takedowns go, this story isn’t bad.

this game has similarities to other batman games they have kept the fighting system even though you can only move 2d rather than 3d and graphically it is quite impressive considering its on the vita . there are some little puzzles and you will find yourself going back and fourth between levels to clear up collectibles. I have really enjoyed it so far and don't regret buying it at all ,it is quite small so don't expect a big open world game like batman on Ps3 but if like me you are just in need of vita games and you would like to get one i would say give it a go

A 2d platformer in 3d clothes, this is a fun game which, if played through properly and with attention can be very rewarding. I will agree with some other reviewers that it can be a little difficult sometimes to know where to go next, but that is half the fun as you upgrade Bats's accessories and weapons allowing you more access to the levels which would not have been previously accessible (the Gel explosive for example to blast through walls and find Wayne Tech upgrades).
The general gameplay consists of running around Blackgate in 4 separate areas in order to save people, restart power supplies, pick up useful objects, and generally stop the Joker, Penguin and Black Mask. The combat system is a la Arkham series with flo-mo action enabling you to combine combinations together with some of the harder thugs requiring a little more tactical thought. The grapple gun is in place but as this is not really a free roam game, your use of it is restricted to where you NEED to go rather than using it as a tactical advantage to get away from things or survey the landscape. It's basically an elaborate jump button.
The detective mode of the game is fun but I did find myself using it all the time so as not to miss the clues left around the maps to unlock extras such as artwork.
There is a good upgrade progression as long as you take your time to find the Wayne Tech boxes containing weapons and suit upgrades and the enemies are thrown at you in good proportion (although I feel there could have been a few more).
Boss battles are fun, but you will need to play them a couple of times until you figure out how to beat them.
All-in-all a decent solid actioner which will last several solid hours of gameplay.

I was reluctant to purchase this one based on reviews but went for it in a recent sale on the high street. Took under 10hr to complete the game at 90% complete and I enjoyed the game and will play it again in future (not one for trading like most I buy these days). It reminded me of the old Metroid and Castlevania games and if you are into those types of free roaming 2D style games you will enjoy it. Graphics are great; puzzles good and I did not have any issues with the map system that was probably confusing to some due to the 2.5D nature of the game. I admit I needed two hints from the web to deal with killing bosses but did not struggle with the exploring for items that is required. Buy it if you enjoy old school Metroid games - I wish there were more of them about as I miss them and find myself returning to the SNES and old GBA (showing my age)...
