Horrible port!Shaide | Feb. 15, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
A horrible port of a mediocre game! It's basically a 2D Side scroller(with 3D graphics). The game tries hard, but fails to impress Arkham fans.
The arkham games are known for their open world, and allowing you to feel what it's like to be the batman! This thing? Very Linear! No real exploration, and just a bad experience all around.

This game is not good... Only for maniacs of a batman arkham series. Gameplay is hidious, some strange 2,5D not precised and having worst cutscenes i saw in video game history. It's so bad and ugly game, worth to play only for a storyline and nothing more. I made through the game, but it was painful, not entertaining, placing this game as a really horrible experience. They just shouldn't made that tittle, or made a comic book, visual novel, movie, slideshow, or normal 3d game like Arkham Origins/Asylum/City, not this... That one is just a catastrofy, if you starving for another portion of Bruce adventure and you accepting the terms of that game it's ok, as a plot is good in some ways but as a gameplay it's embarassment for the franchise, they just served that story in really bad way. Buy, launch, play (or at least try) and ... just let it go. Best solution in my private opinion.

2.5D sequel of Batman Arkham Origins is an excellent addition to the Batman Arkham series. The game continues B:AO story and also allows us to see the first appearance of Catwoman in Batman's life. Gameplay has 2.5D features but it feels very and very good. For true fans B:AO Blackgate will be an excellent opportunity to return back to Gotham and put on Batman's suit.

If you are expecting some kind of innovative gameplay, I'm sorry to dissapoint you. But if you want to know more about the world of Batman Arkham series, this is your game.
You can play as Batman in a 2.5D world , because this game is a port of the PSVita and 3DS versions.
I got this game on a deal, so I'm giving it a 75. Nice game, but it needed more improvements.
Fantastic PC port of a PSVita game, perhaps the bestspycid | April 14, 2014 | See all spycid's reviews »
If you are a batman fan like me and don't have a PS Vita, then this game is a must for you. For the first time you can control Batman in a 2.5D world.
The core element remains the same, only the open world idea vanishes. The game does not fail to deliver. For a handheld console game, the game does a very good job both in terms of gameplay and graphics.
This is the best deal out there. What are you waiting for if you consider yourself a batman fan?
Great PC port one of the best PS Vita gamesxarabas02 | April 6, 2014 | See all xarabas02's reviews »
For an average Batman fan, this game has a lot to offer.
Delve deeper into the Batman lore and learn more background stories about your favorite Batman supervillains. Blackgate prison is under siege controlled by 3 most ruthless villains from Batman universe (i won't say who they are to not spoil much) and the story in the game and order of some things you have to do in campaign slightly changes depending on the order of villains you decide to attack first (each one of them controls one of the three large sections in Blackgate prison).
Lots of costumes to unlock, collectables to find and gadgets to upgrade should keep you occupied more than you intented and it also adds quite a lot on the replay value of the game.
Get it, you won't regret it!
A good metroidvaniaCavalieroscuro | April 2, 2014 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Arkham Origins Blackgate is the sequel of Arkham Origins, in which Batman will meet Catwoman for the first time. The graphic is very good, considering this is a 2.5d sidescrolling metroidvania. So you must unlock new power-ups to access new locations. The map has been improved considering the 3DS one was terrible. Good and nice title.
