Another Great Batman Game

ehead22 | Oct. 30, 2013 | Review of Batman Arkham Origins

Disclaimer: This is for the single-player mode of the game.

Pros: - Better pacing, great story - More challenging than previous games - Pretty game, outstanding voice acting - High replay value

Cons: - Buggy (Hello there Burnley Comms Tower) - Too much QTE scenes

Verdict: Buy this game. Bugs and QTEs aside, Batman Arkham Origins is definitely one of the must-buy titles this year. If you enjoyed the previous Arkham games or a newcomer to the series, this game is just fun all around. The story in AO is probably the best out of the three (and probably the darkest one yet) and people familiar with the comics will surely be satisfied with how the characters are handled in the game. WB Montreal also didn't slouch around with the voice acting department, every character delivers believable lines that make the experience more immersive. People not really familiar with the Bat should also give the game a try. The gameplay mechanics alone makes it worth your time. High replay value and a new online multiplayer mode are just icing on the cake.
