Product Description

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, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise.

Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, players will meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships.

I've been a fan of the Batman games since the start, and felt Arkham City was an improvement on Arkham Asylum. You may therefore assume this would be a further improvement from Arkham City. Alas, you'd be wrong.

Having glanced over other reviews, much more detail would only be repetition, however I fully support those who have mentioned, aside from the annoyance of bugs, that it just doesn't seem to stack up against Arkham City.

Yes, there is new gear, and a large progressive upgrade system. Storyline is fairly absorbing, with plenty of characters thrown into the mix, and the enhanced detective mode plays a large part as the story unfolds. One of my favourite additions is using the Batwing to get around the massive map, which saves a huge amount of time getting from one mission to the other, and there are plenty of side missions to help build up your XP.

It just doesn't seem as smooth, nor quite as challenging, and somehow feels lifeless compared to its predecessors. I can't really put my finger on why, it's just the feeling you get whilst playing. I enjoyed Arkham City much more.

If you enjoyed the series so far, then you will enjoy this, however I would probably wait until the price inevitably drops to make it more worth while. By then it's more likely all the bugs would be ironed out with the latest patch.

Arkham Origins is pretty much Arkham City with some minor modifications. If you liked Arkham City and are hungry for more of the same, the chances are you'll like Arkham Origins, but if you're looking for something new you are likely to be disappointed. There are some enhancements to Batman's "detective mode" but I'd struggle to pick out much else that's different to the Batman in Arkham City.

The game consists of the usual combinations of main mission, various side missions, puzzles to solve, occasional fights against "big" enemies and lots of swinging around the city. There's plenty to do although I tend to agree with some other reviewers that it does lack a bit of "life" - a certain 'je ne sais quoi' that's hard to put your finger on.

I am nevertheless enjoying the game and it's nice to see a long single-player version of a game after the disappointingly short offerings of things like Call of Duty Ghosts. I can't comment on the multi-player version as I never play that.

I started playing this on Christmas Eve and maybe by then a lot of the bugs others have mentioned had been fixed as I've only found one bug so far (a "stuck" enemy that I couldn't hit, which meant restarting from the last save and trying again). There is of course the usual Steam nonsense to negotiate but that's par for the course these days.

I think it's a bit expensive at full price as I struggle to see this as more than an expansion pack to Arkham City but, as I said, I am still enjoying the game and it'll probably be closer to "good value" in a few months when the price drops.

I've completed the two previous Batman games so have looked forward to getting to grips with this one. The game has started well but I've got stuck battling Deathstroke and this fight is pretty early in the game. I've been to various forums and note that many people have had the same problem and have been surprised by the degree of difficulty so early in the game. Those that have got past him have said none of the remaining big boss fights are as bad. Every now and then I keep going back to the game to try and defeat him but get frustrated at my lack of ability. I really want to progress through the game in my spare time but am not enjoying this fight and feel as though I've wasted my money.

I'm 55 so am probably past it but if you're young and have bags of time to spend on the game then no doubt you'll get past him in time and enjoy the rest of the game, so this is really a word of warning for oldies like me!

Batman arkham series of game have been a fun and enjoyable series of game for me ,Batman arkham origins is a game i enjoyed playing but is has a bug in the enigma tower ,you get trapped in the tower and are unable to escape throught the vent.but the good thing about batman arkham origins is the auto save in the game ,so if you do become trapped you can restart the game from the checkpoint,so you do not lose your game progress.

Batman origins has very good graphics the city and snow are rendered very well ,batman moves fights and glides very smoothy and it adds a some new villiains to the series..blackmask ,the enigma,anarky,deathstroke..

Batman is fun game to play ,but i would wait for the price to come down before buying this game,play the game for your self and take note the has a few bugs which i have stated but you always can restart to the checkpoint and play on.
Batman is a fun game,not as good as the rocksteady batman games but playable .
Batman arkham origins loses a 2 star for the bugs ,a decent batman game overall.

It's the coldest Christmas Eve in the history of Gotham City, with residents taking cover from a furious snowfall. Criminal gangs take advantage of the empty streets to settle old scores and pull off robberies and heists, none more virulently than the gang led by Black Mask. Batman, only a couple of years into his crime-fighting double-life, takes up the fight against Black Mask but learns that there are eight deadly assassins on his trail and a chaotic new villain has also emerged, known only as 'The Joker'.

Arkham Origins is the third game in the Arkham series of Batman games and acts as a prequel to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Like Arkham City, it depicts a large section of Gotham City and allows the player to free-roam through it, either pursuing the main storyline or undertaking optional side-missions. The game is heavily focused on combat, with Batman having to defeat (but not kill, due to his ethos) hundreds of henchman and criminals as well as several major enemies to progress. The game also emphasises Batman's use of gadgets to overcome obstacles, such as using a crypto-graphic sequencer to hack locks and computers or a glue grenade to block up gas vents. Finally, the game allows Batman to use his detective skills by investigating crime scenes and piecing together sequences of events from clues.

If you played and enjoyed the previous two Arkham games, Batman Origins offers a lot more of the same. Combat is mostly the same, aside from boss fights which are now more dynamic and feature more epic moments and mid-fight dialogue exchanges to make them more interesting.
