A satisfying experience

rasky_music | July 29, 2014 | Review of Batman Arkham Origins

Batman Arkham City is one of my favorite games and I was afraid this game wouldn't be able to live up to its predecessor. It certainly did exceed my expectations and is an enjoyable journey throughout. I have some gripes with the game, like the starting sequence. The intro feels forced and the game holding your hand through it doesn't make it any better. But once you get out of the forced intro sequence you'll find yourself enjoying the game much more, or at least I did. The combat doesn't feel as receptive as AC, but it certainly is good. The boss battles are very enjoyable and satisfying.

A pleasant surprise

I went into this gaming thinking it'd be a bland and poor action game. I'm glad to say the game proved otherwise. I found myself getting immersed in the game very quickly and found myself enjoying it more and more. I am a little disappointed by the DLC that is currently available, but the campaign offers a fair amount of things to do (collectibles, upgrading, tombs, etc). The game also looks incredibly beautiful and feels sturdy, like you're in full control.
