3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong hardware, recommend PC version, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batman Arkham Origins (PS3) (Video Game)
I'm sure this game was intended for more powerful hardware like the PS4 or Xbox One because it doesn't seem to fare very well on the PS3. Lots of lag, fighting sometimes goes very fast (like you're fast forwarding video) and there's a glitch with synchronising the sound with video.
Otherwise, it's pretty much the same as Arkham City but with a new storyline. I recommend playing this game on the PC, which I was considering getting anyway but since I got all previous games on PS3, might as well complete the set.

There are quite a few gimmicks, which they stuffed into this game, such as unscalable buildings that look scalable (tick me off #1), a cut scene in the batwing while fast travelling (sometimes crashes so: tick me off #2), they seem to have devolved in some graphical areas of the game where it just isn't as detailed as it was in AC and the fighting element isn't as fluid as previous games (tick me off #3).

Overall; a big fat flop, but the storyline, in my opinion, is pretty good. My 3-star rating is generous - they could have done a lot better because the game seems like it was rushed to production.
