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.

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.
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!
But to be honest I didn't Buy the third game Origins due to all the negative review it has received.
so when It was going for 6 pound I decided to give it a go anyway ( Its funny how the price drop can do that to you )
Anyway , All I can say really is that having finished it last night that I really enjoyed it and I wanted to let you all know that Its a fun Batman game no worse than the first two
I can only assume that the people who game it two stars , didn't play the game through.
On normal level If you are veteran of the first two games you will find that game somewhat easy
Graphics are great ,
I think that the controls have improved since the first two games ( either that I I have gotten better at playing )
I this environment there are some very tall buildings to dive down and glide around for ages .
the introduction of the Batwing waypoints are good so you can quickly traverse great distances .
although I really feel that this was a great opportunity missed
why not just give us a batwing and let me fly around the map whenever I want ??
that would have made this game simple great
I really like the puzzles and really this games was very enjoyable until the end
but with a few side missions still to do and Challenge maps to do I will go back for more
not to mention starting again in difficult mode.
So If like me you liked the first two games . and simple want more Batman . then pick it up for a bargain price and enjoy
and ignore the two stars critics
So you then go and remove the game from your system, deleting anything vaguely to the game and then try it again. It all then seems to work fine. Until you beat Killer Croc. Again. Then the same problem emerges. Again.
The thing is, this is apparently a problem that Rocksteady know about. And they just don't care. Now I know that the game is a couple of years old, and people have been complaining about this problem pretty much since it was released, but it appears that Rocksteady simply do not care. They have long since given up on trying to solve any problem, leaving people out of pocket with a shiny new drinks mat rather than a game.
Like I said, I'm sure it's a good game. But if you can't play it due to some technical fault, then it's as good as a chocolate teapot. And there it is, Batman: Arkham Origins is a chocolate teapot, it seems to melt if you try to use it.
