*(I, personally, loved the game - although nothing new, it is definitely a welcomed edition to the "Arkham" series!)*
When the parcel arrived, I was slightly taken a back by its size! The box is huge! Definitely well packaged and presented.
Inside the box you get -
Statue: Roughly 11 inches tall, depicting Batman holding up the Joker. This statue has some *great* detail. Although made from plastic, it does not look cheap. It will sit proudly on any shelf!
Art Book/Dossier Pack: Again, well presented and some nice add-on's. The book is a hardback, and is a great and interesting look at the making of the game. I especially liked the character designs/drawings.
DLC Codes: Standard downloadable/bonus content :)
Metal (Game) Pack: A really nice, embossed, metal pack to hold the game's disc. Definitely beats your plain old plastic case!
Over-all, I was very happy with this edition. Personally, as a fan of "Batman" and the "Arkham" series, it was worth the extra money.
The statue alone is amazing, and the additional content compliments a truly great series.
Now onto the game itself, as this latest Batman game wasn't made by rocksteady I was prepared for a little disappointment. I can say that this game maintains batman's feel and game play but misses some of rocksteady's polish. The game has locked up a couple of times in my first 2 hours and the cut scenes jar a little when transitioning from the live action.
Also the game isn't as intuitive with some of the clues as the other two.
It feels like this hasn't been polished enough as I feel WB Montreal are a league 2 team unfortunately and in some areas it shows.
I must emphasis though that this is still a very enjoyable game and I am getting engrossed in my game plays.
Just a pity it wasn't the premier rocksteady at the helm.
I think its even better than the Arkham City set.The box it comes in is huge and it has the game in a metal pack with the characters embossed onto the cover.... awesome. The statue with Batman grabbing the Joker is fantastic and much bigger than the statue that came with Arkham City. It also comes with an artbook and a folder with an Assasins contracts as well as some GCPD files and a wanted poster. Also the set comes with the Knightfall, Deathstroke and 1st appearance DLC.
I've written a more detalied review of the game itself on the game page, so I'll keep this part breif. The game stays true to its core elements. I enjoyed the story and again there are lots of side missions to get through. Plus I absoultly love the CSI stuff :) One of the biggest flaws though is the issues I've had with the game freezing too often. It feels like the game was rushed out and I really hope this gets fixed in a patch as it is badly needed.
The set itself is definatly a 5-star all the way though, the Batman/Joker statue looks amazing and I think it was well worth the money.
‘Arkham Origins’ is a prequel to the videogame ‘Arkham Origins’, and the story takes place about 5 years prior to the events of that latter game. It forms part of the wider ‘Arkham’ universe – although is made by a different studio. In many respects, ‘Origins’ is similar in layout, design and objective to the other games in this series – although it adds a couple of new things, and offers an original storyline. Overall, if you have enjoyed the other entries in this series, you’ll probably like ‘Origins’.
The game allows you to play as Batman, from a third-person perspective (‘over-the-shoulder’) and you exist in a large open-world environment within Gotham City. The story takes place quite early on in Batman’s career as a heroic crime-fighter – and, while many hoodlums are aware of “The Bat”, many don’t yet fear him. And yet Batman is making in-roads into the criminal underworld, and so the gangsters want him out of the way. With this in mind, the Black Mask places a $50 million bounty on Batman … leading many gangs, crooks and hitmen to try and kill Batman. So we see the likes of Killer Croc, Bane, Copperhead and Deathstroke enter the fray – all intent on Batman’s downfall. And, taking advantage of the mayhem, a new super-villain makes his presence known: as the Joker.Read more ›
