Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard Edition

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same... 13 Nov 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first two games in this series were probably the most exciting, fun and beautifully crafted games i've had the pleasure to play.
With Rocksteady handing over the reins I had my worries about the direction the game would take. Fortunately WBIE know a good thing when they see at and didn't meddle. But that decision comes with a downside, there is little innovation in this game compared to the previous episodes.

Yes there is a revamped detective mode (which you are mostly a spectator through and takes little skill no matter how much it's dressed up) and some new gadgets, although the super power mittens tip the balance way in your favour and removes the challenge.

I find Gotham is beautifully rendered but a bit unsatisfying as it's unpopulated, like an empty shell. Coming from a couple of months of the living world of GTA V, this was a bit of a downer.

The game is still brilliantly fun to play and you still get that "i'm the dark knight" feeling and thrill. It just doesn't move things along as the previous games did. The voice acting is still second to none and the story remains as strong as ever. It just feels like an add on to Arkham City-2.5 if you will.

Worth playing,was always going to find it hard to live up to parts 1+2. Just get that niggling feeling Rocksteady may have been more adventurous and the product may have been more polished as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a night for a knight! 2 Mar 2014
By A2Y
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
You play as Batman, younger and much less refined in the world of crime fighting. It's Christmas Eve, Black Mask has put quite the bounty upon your head, attracting a number of super villains to take you down. The GCPD struggle to contain the situation and put Gotham under lockdown. The villainous assassins are running riot and it's up to the dark knight to restore order.

The story is very well written, establishing a solid beginning for Batman. The relationship between Alfred and Bruce Wayne becomes the heartbeat of the story and how the two grow closer together in their fight to protect Gotham. The assassins are strongly integrated into a variety of sub-plots; leaving the Joker to rise as an unforgettable oppressive force upon Batman.

G R A P H I C S & S O U N D
Gotham City is split into a number of districts, each portraying an individual style and its own colourful outlook. A great deal of verticality has been thrown into Gotham, giving players greater height to work with when scurrying about the city. The gothic inspired design is very reminiscent of the Tim Burton movies.

Batman's character model is as sharp as ever, displaying plenty of damage detailing as the night draws on. Animations are far superior to those of the previous games, especially during free-fall and caped gliding moments. As the story progresses, Gotham also begins to change and many of its structures take damage from game related events. Buildings tumble, bridge supports collapse and generally all hell breaks loose. The voice acting talents of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are sorely missed, but its Troy Baker's take on the Joker that truly outclasses anyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why change a winning formula? 28 Nov 2013
By James
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, so the story is a little predictable but so what? It's still a whole new story with new things to do and new (some of them) people to remove from the streets of Gotham.

The combat system hasn't changed, the gadgets haven't changed (much - the exception being shock gloves) and the overall atmosphere of the game hasn't changed. That, dear readers, is a good thing. Many websites which reviewed this game said that not changing aforementioned features was a bad thing, but I assure you it is not. This coming from gaming sites that consistently rate CoD and BF high, despite them being very similar each time.

The 'Most Wanted' missions are really good and give the game an extra boost, in both time and fun. These can last as long as you want them to because they just stay as markers on the map until you complete them.

There are plenty of reasons to buy this game but to list them all now would take away from the fun of finding them out for yourself! Buy this game!

Sorry for my english first. Could write pages about that but I will keep it short, clean and simple.
Personally and like most of us I loved the first Game Arkham Asylum, enjoyed the second one a lot and thought "well more of the same is still good enough for me, cuz I am the Bat!".
Unfortunately that doesn't pay out at all. Mechanics feel dated and need improvements. The story sounded promising at first but feels uninspired and boring very quickly compared to what chances they had within the setting. Some of the backtracking drives you crazy at points and I don't know how you feel about the riddler trophies/datapacks/stuff that is stupidly scattered around the world to let you collect things without asking why - for the sake of completion. One of the major problems is that BAO simply tries its best to 'add' things but mostly fails to deliver anything really interesting and new.
All of that would have been more or less 'acceptable', not great or cool whatever but acceptable for most of the time if there haven't been that much bugs and crashes.
If you ask me be patient, always be excited about what Rocksteady is going to release in the future and on next gen and in the meantime stay with the other two games. AC for the open world and increased presentation. AA for the original experience.
