Rated 8 out of 10 by sssssssssssssss1 Underrated
All I've read about Arkham Origins was that it was the least of the series. That doesn't say much for a series that's absolutely mind blowing from Asylum all the way to Knight. Still, I think it's underrated. I even had a Gamestop employee recommend that I put it back on the shelf because it isn't very good. I didn't listen, and I'm glad I didn't. The game is good. The boss fights are tremendous and using the quick drops from the Batwing are a convenient way to get around Gotham. It's rich in side quests and although I do think the games developed by Rocksteady are better, I find myself playing this one just as much as I played any of the other games in the series.
Rated 6 out of 10 by DudeWritingAReview Batman formula in buggy format
I have played and enjoyed all the Arkham entries released so far. My advice is if you want to play Origins, get it on another system if you have one. I experienced a game crashing glitch almost every time I played this game. Whether complete screen freezes or scripted events failing to load, I rarely ended my gameplay session because I was ready to. I can't speak if there are bugs on the other systems as I haven't played them, but the glitches in the WiiU version were not a fun experience at all. I would rate it lower but the game actually is fun when it works properly.

when the game was released there was a lot going around about how bad this game was. well being a fan of the series and have had played the asylum and city i just had to get a copy of this game and see for myself. After beating the game i realized how wrong everyone was. This game is what the Arkham series is. It was just as fun and tactical as the other two and with the side missions there to give you some more playing time it really gave you a lasting appeal. Us as gamers however, are spoiled so i can see why people didnt enjoy this game as much because the story might have been a little short and you may have thought that with all these assassins sent out to kill you that you would have a reasonable amount of hours to play. I recommend this game to all gamers and those fans of the Arkham series, be grateful for this game and just appreciate it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by NightWingLegend The rumors were true!
Haha! It's the next installment of the Batman Arkham Series! The Arkham series is one of my favorite modern video game franchises! Take a glance at my username and you should assume I'm a Batman fan. I gave Arkham City a review and if you want to see if the game is good, go check out my review :3. We've seen a little bit of gameplay and it looks more like Arkham city than Asylum. City was open and had side-quests and tons of goons to smack around. I found myself exploring outside more than doing the main story in city, but in Asylum it was more linear. It looks like Origins is gonna be open world, even more so than City! Long story short, I'm excited and you should be too fellow Batman Fans and video gamers alike!
Rated 9 out of 10 by DrumGamer1519 Not the best game I played. But it still rocks
Granted, It did get a little glitchy during specific parts of the game, but I got over the glitches and I played on.
Rated 0 out of 10 by iLoveNintendoFlo Batman is lazy!
Batman is so lazy! The Xbox 360 & PS3, PC, PS4 verison of this is getting a online mod but Wii U is not. The reason is not cuz of the Wii U's power or Nintendo or any thing! it cuz they see the Wii U has a lowwer install basic and they said that a lot of Nintendo gamers don't play online games. Well I am a Nintendo gamer and I am on the Internet right now. So please stop being lazy WB. Also I don't like how Mr. Pengn looks emo. He is suppose to be a crazy pengn man Come on. I was a very big batman fan but Wii U has more games that I will support this year. I also have to say the game looks fun but I will boycott it just cuz I am made about the online.
Rated 0 out of 10 by iLoveNintendoFlo Arkham Origins on Wii U! :):):)
Batman Arkham Origins despite of its name is not the origin story for batman but is indeed a prequel to the other Batman Arkham games. This game is in development by Warner Bros. Games Motreal. It follows Batman on Christmas Eve. So why every one is at home with their family's enjoying the most wonderful time of the year. Batman has become the target of a grope of assassins and has to save Gotham. sense the game takes place before the other Arkham games we get to see Gotham before the flood and before other stuff. So the city will look different plus you will be able to explore the whole city unlike Arkham City witch you could explore this little cut of place where they were keeping the bad guys. The one thing that people are going bats about with this game is that Kevin Conroy the person who did the voice of batman in the other Arkham games is not reprising his role for this game. It is rumored that he may make a gest cameo but it's odd that he is not playing batman in this cuz he did in all the other ones and its going to seem odd having some one new doing the voice. That said the new guy is a very good actor Roger Craig Smith he did the voice of Bman in Lego Batman 2.Batman Arkham Origins comes out Oct 25th. All that said I have faith this game will have a good story gameplay and be well done over all. They were some very emotional moments in Batman Arkham City witch was great. Any way I hope this game turns out as good as it looks. Happy gaming see yall. :):):)
Rated 9 out of 10 by chriszmbe Just as good as arkham city
I enjoyed this game a lot and really think if you liked arkham city you will like origins just as much. I have beat all the batman games and think its a great game for any gamer to play because of the story line and the gameplay experience. I have played this on both xbox and wiiu and I would prefer to play it on Wiiu because the graphics are just a little sharper and the gamepad is a nice feature the WiiU offers.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Gilkinator This game Stinks.....
I do not want to get this Game again Because I had a Pretty hard time Dealing with Deathstroke. No matter how hard I tried Beating him, It just wasn't worth it. Arkham City is much more Better.
Rated 7 out of 10 by JadeHydra Good game, but watch out!
Batman: Arkham Origins is an awesome game. It's got a lot more bugs than the previous games, but there are new developers. The Wii U Gamepad features are still nice and handy! Watch out though, the game is $10 cheaper for Wii U players because they cut out the Multiplayer mode.
