Batman: Arkham Origins
great story line, lacking creativity
i loved the first 2 batman games, but to me all arkham orgins is, is a refurbished arkham city, its the same game play with a different story line and a few new villians. i loved the story in this game, but for the most part i felt like i was just replaying arkham city with a bigger map.
The game is very complicated. I got the game expecting it to be like arkham asylum but this is way more difficult. Nice graphics though.
I'm pretty new to a PS3, and have always used a PC, but let me tell you, this game is great! The gameplay is a blast, and I wish it could just keep going with more story play.
So Much Potential!!!
Let me start off by saying that Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are two of my all-time favorite games. When I first put in Origins, I was legitimately excited. Graphically, this game is a visual masterpiece. You can definitely see every little detail and it looks fantastic. The story is incredible! It definitely kept me entertained from start to finish with minor flaws, but their forgivable. Although this game is beautiful and has a fantastic story, it also has its fair share of problems. First off, if you are creating an origin story you can not have the main character be more advanced than in the sequels. It's true! Batman has more gadgets and a more advanced detective mode which makes no sense whatsoever. Secondly, the combat has taken a step backwards. Batman moves to slow and he just feels a lot clunkier than in the original Arkham games. Third, and probably least important, the voice acting is not very good. Batman sounds like he has a cold through the whole game and the Joker is just a budget version of Mark Hamill. While guys like Bane, Alfred, and the Penguin had great voice actors, the main characters in the story are very distracting to listen to. Fourth, there are too many useless characters. I won't go into too much detail because of spoilers, but this game has too many characters that appear randomly and one character in particular has a disappointing battle and then he dies! Fifth, challenge mode is stupid. It seems like the team at WB Montreal saw that Arkham City had a lot of challenge maps and thought that they needed more because more=better.
Arkham Origins is a decent game, but it suffers from too many flaws. The fighting is clunky, the gadgets and detective mode are out of place, the voice acting is meh, and frankly the cast of villains is too big. I say, if you really want to play this game just rent it and beat the story. The story is great and you will not be disappointed.
First Off I rather have a game on what happen after Arkham City and not be about the joker until the end you find out he is alive, although I love the joker but there are many great Batman Villains that the Arkham series made weak but, anyways This game is Great Interesting and fun, although this just feels like a long DLC to batman Arkham city and you are in old Gotham which becomes a prison in the other game Arkham city. I like how you can see buildings in Arkham city that where all destroyed and broken down now in here they look brand new. There is a few parts I did not like when you are fighting fire fly you hide behind cars and the cars are 10X it size and makes that part look stupid. The voice acting is alright the guy who voices Batman is awesome and sounds like a batman but then there is the joker the guy who voices him sounds terrible I'm not sure if people liked him but he sounds like he is trying to hard to sound like Mark Hamill which makes not sound like a younger joker but a guy with a high voice that squeaks when he hits that Joker faze words. Over all story mode felt short and you did a lot of what you done in Arkham city like break the penguin radar blocker which was something that felt boring doing in Arkham City and is still boring in this overall I love batman to me this was still a good game to play.
This next saga for batman is great. More action and adventure then the previous two games made but still is just as good.
This game has so many bugs it's not even worth playing. I was very disappointed, previous editions were excellent, maybe Warner Brother Montreal just isn't ready for the big time.
Its a very good game that has been evolved into an even greater game got the season pass with it and wow i mean it just blew my mind new gadgets new playable charcters in challenge mode deathstroke , bruce ,batman,and also new gadgets such as the remote claw,and the electricutioner's shock gloves ,and can't the expanded story dlc that will include mr freeze.-

This game ism the perfect game for any fan of Batman. I've played a lot of super hero games from Hulk, to Superman, to Spiderman, But this by far is the best. It has a open map and provides the action of Arkham Asylum, and Arkham City(Which I Have both.) But it steps up the action level that is unmet by any Superhero game ever made. It's awesome and I Highly Recommend it.
This game is so good! I was really surprised when I played it! The combat and the predator is AMAZING! If u are a batman fan this is a must have! But this game is pretty hard so if your a hardcore player u should buy this awesome game!
