Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate
With the vita not having alot of games for it since its launch, this is one they did not need. You hear batman (my personal favorite hero) and ps vita you think wow with this powerful system this game is going to be amazing and it failed. I had high expectations for this I wanted this to be like the assassin creed game that came out last year then I seen the demo and it looked bad but I love batman so I had bought it (now I regret it). This game feels like the 1990s game comic zone only with upper scale graphics it feels more like a DS game or iPad or a smart phone game ported on the ps vita I like the motion comic it has for its cut scenes but the game play is Blah I played a little over 2 hours the day It came out and haven't played it since, nor do i care to. (probably going to sell it) the only thing I like about this is that its batman and fits well with Arkham origins on the consoles story wise other than that This is game has noting to make it special.
Beware not a 3D game!
I got the chance to play batman origins at 2013 E3 Event on the PSVita, and I was very surprised when I saw that it was not a console port, it was actually a 2D side scroller. ( more like 2.5D ) The game looks very detailed and is puzzling at times. I am however disappointed that the developers went this route with the hand held versions. It is too my knowledge that the 3DS is going to be the same as the VITA version. Just because it is a side croller does not mean it is not a fun and enticing game though, it just isn't what most people were hoping for. I recommend watching some videos on youtube of gameplay so you can get a look for yourself, because it is hard to describe how the 2D and 3D physics mold together, to make a more 2.5 dimentional game. Thanks for reading my review and have a great day.
I wish it was a 3D game like the ps3.
Worst game ever, not like the ps3 Batman Arkham Origins and I will not recommend this game to a friend or person.
Something to keep in mind...
Something for people to keep in mind, is that this isn't the real, full game. This is a different game called Batman: Arkham Origins: Blackgate. It is a 2D fighter in the vein of Metroid. You may not want to pre-order it thinking that it is the console version.
Where is my DLC?!
As much as I enjoyed the game, there was NO dlc for the psvita but for the other consoles they all received it. The story mode is extremely short you can beat it in 3 hours if you take you're time. I felt so jipped it's the whole reason why i preorded this was to get extra content but all i got was a standard copy. I was better off renting this had a known what i do. Go for the ps3 version or the other console version that this is on. Stay AWAY from the psvita version. No multiplayer mode, just a new game plus once it's complete. I'm still in shock i just traded it in this morning. I really hope that next time they do this, they don't rip out so much of the content. Overall my frustration and dissappointment is all i can offer in terms of a "review". have a good one guys
Possibly The Best Looking Game on Vita
This game is amazing, and possibly the best looking game on the Vita. The visual and artistic style is just a fresh of breath air for those of us who have been waiting for a title worth fighting for. Combat is fast, accurate, and realistic. It sounds great with headphones on. As a side scroller, it's reminiscent of NES and SNES Batman titles, but it's not always in that dimension, which i was surprised to find. There are some 3d parts too. It is a little difficult to get used to certain parts and actions, luckily you can start back up at your last checkpoint if you die. Overall, probably the best Vita game so far.
Portable batman experience
Good game overall fighting mechanics are a lot like arkham asylum, only 2d, only negative thing is the map. It's pretty much useless you will get lost for hours at a period of time. But while your lost you can find a lot of the goodies they have hidden everywhere. Boss battles are pretty decent not that challenging nor easy. Overal a good batman portable experience and if you can afford it get it on the vita much better looking
DO NOT BUY
Please dont waste your money. I watched a video on youtube about this game at ign, they said it was TERRIBLE! you may seem to like from gameplay but if u watch the video im sure u will change ur mind.
i bought this game the day it came out. played it right away not dissapointed. but at some pints its hard and boing but mostly really fun. it will last you atleast 3 months. The voices are amazing and so r the garphics. it uses the touch contrals and sensors for somethings. i think u should buy it.
this game looks terrible hopefully I'm wrong but watching the demo on youtube its noting like the console game it looks like a stinky game why do that to this beautiful vita that can stream ps4 games but make a game that looks like its coming out on the old Sega system
