The assertions that BAO does not innovate the series in any are correct, but that doesn't detract from the core of a good experience. It's important to remember that this will be someone's first introduction to the series, so despite the gameplay repetition and lack of new features, this is a solid title and a good entry in the series.

Having completed the campaign, I can say I thoroughly enjoy it and look forward to more story DLC. The multiplayer was a bit underwhelming and prepare to grind out Riddler Trophies again if you are in to achievements.

Overall, it's not original, but it's a fun game not deserving of the harsh criticism it's been receiving.
