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.

The Arkham Story Begins: Batman: Arkham Origins features an all-new single-player campaign written by Dooma Wendschuh and Corey May, with Geoff Johns consulting. Players become an early-career Batman as he encounters for the first time many of the super villains that shape his future.

Enhanced Detective Mode: Batman’s detective skills are tested as never before with an all-new Crime Scene system that allows players to scrub through the evidence in order to find key pieces of information. Players use Batman’s cowl and Bat Computer to digitally recreate crime scenes, allowing them track clues that normal eyes would miss.

Gotham City as Never Seen Before: Explore areas of Gotham City before its transformation into Arkham City, and experience all new areas and other iconic locations. The dynamic and rich environments are filled with a variety of enemies, “crimes-in-progress” and other content that will encourage exploration and player engagement.

Most Wanted Side Missions: Hunt down villains who are connected to, but not part of the core story. It’s the player’s choice if and when they want to complete these threads.

New Enemies: Encounter new enemies such as the Armoured Enforcer and Martial Artist who challenge fans to approach FreeFlow Combat in different ways.

New Gadgets: Utilise an arsenal of familiar gadgets from previous Batman: Arkham games, as well as new items such as the Remote Claw. Batman can take down enemies by using the Remote Claw to attach enemies to one another or to objects within the environment for quick takedowns.

New and Familiar Characters: Encounter a full cast of iconic DC Comics characters including Black Mask, Penguin, Deathstroke, Bane, Anarky, Captain Gordon, The Joker and others.

Out of the three Arkham games for the PS3 - Arkham Origins has to rank my absolute favorite. The put downs this game received when released, monstrously undeserved. I honestly haven't enjoyed a playstation game quite this much since Metal Gear Solid for the PS1 - in fact, it actually reminds me very strongly of MGS1. The snowbound setting, the range of outlandish bosses, plot twists. It's a Batman game undoubtedly but coming fresh off finishing it - I can honestly say it reminded me of the fun I had playing MGS.

Everything about it's lovely. The boss battles are varied - the fight with Fire Fly on the bridge, enormously good fun. Copperhead, Bane - they all play really, really well. The younger Joker - refreshing after Mark Hamills stately portrayal. Batmans great. The story's great, nice twists - it's all good stuff.

The revamped Crime Scene investigation gizmo that allows you to scrub through a reconstructed crime scene - it's no where near the passive experience games critics made out, if anything it's considerably more involving. You genuinely have to scrub through in order to find the hidden clues where as in the original two games all you did was press X. I don't know why people had such a downer on this, I really don't.

The only sticking point - Death Stroke. That is a grim and relatively early on experience which ends up with Batman dead UNTIL you figure - you actually don't need to hit Death Stroke so much as counter correctly. Let Death Stroke wear himself out attacking you, through in the occasional cloheline attack with the bat-claw - and you win. The battle's designed so as you can make it as dynamic or as easy as you want, just depending on how you play it - kind of like the boss fights in Metal Gear Solid 4.

I must say that when the arkham series traded makers from rockstar to WD montreal, I was a bit worried because Rockstar had set the bar too high for a batman game and the task for any other company to take on the task of Rockstar would be unachievable. However with early screen shots, gameplay footage and the origins video promo that showcased deathstroke going toe to toe with the dark knight, my worries about arkham origins started to fade away (though not completely).
I must say that I have just completed the game and I must say...wow! Origins does deliver like it's predecessors. well...sort of. The story has it that joker (disguised as the black mask)has placed a heavy bounty on the dark knight so many of gotham's criminals (eight to be exact-excluding the regular street thugs) have emerged to take on the bounty quest.

Now story-line wise, it is here that origins really shines. The story is really captivating and PERSONALLY I did find the story of origins to be a lot better than Arkham city and asylum combined! the way the 8 assassins out for the bounty are introduced, you can't just help but be instantly drawn to each character illustration. The story also digs deep and uncovers the jokers fascination with the batman, Harley quinn's obsession with...Mr J and Bane's addiction to the venom substance that causes him to mutate into hulking appearance you see in asylum and city. The confrontation between batman, bane and joker is really enthralling.
Voice-over acting is great though it took me a while to get used to Roger Craig Smith as a younger batman but don't let that discourage you. a few of the voice-over actors from previous batman games appear here.

I pre-ordered Batman: Arkham Origins and got it on the day of release. Initially the game was plagued with glitches, poor frame rate and slowdown. I could barely traverse through Gotham City, so I put the game down. At the time I was disappointed to say the least, especially after playing through Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. However subsequent patches and bugfixes made the game playable again, and I spent most of November 2013 playing through this game, and my verdict at the my first playthrough was that I really enjoyed the experience.

Upon returning to this game a few years later, with all the extra DLC now avaliable to us, my opinion has scarcely changed: Arkham Origins is still a great game in my opinion. Despite not expanding much at all on what Arkham City brought to the franchise - and in my opinion this game is inferior to Arkham City - I still believe that Arkham Origins is a very fun game and a welcome edition to the lineup of Batman: Arkham games. Even though now Batman: Arkham Knight is avaliable to us, I say that if you can, don't skip over this game. It is arguably the worst game in the Arkham series (notwithstanding the handheld games which I have no experience with), but that doesn't negate and reason to play it. I mean the story itself has little connection to the other games, so you don't need to play this game in order to understand the other three. So if you can't afford, or don't have time, to play every Arkham Game, I;d suggest you skip this one and stick to the others.

Gameplay and Content:
Despite the game is very similar to Arkham City, it's not a complete carbon copy, as there are some unique features in gameplay, such as the Remote Claw and the Shock Gloves.
