"In Arkham Origins we join Batman in his angsty teenage years. He’s not the stoic, Kevin Conroy-voiced Batman of Asylum and City, who calmly asks criminals to turn themselves in before he beats them up, but a hot-headed, teeth-baring vigilante who punches first and asks questions later." - PCGamer.com
"Batman: Arkham Origins is a low point for the series, but even when it's not very good, it's still pretty good." - IGN.com
Batman: Arkham Origins™ is the next installment in the blockbuster Batman: Arkham videogame franchise. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the game features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise.
Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, players will meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships.

This is really more of the same from Arkham City. Same kinds of missions, similarl designed levels, and the boss battles, despite being the biggest selling point, are the worst of the serious. Most levels amount to slinging onto and into a building, finding a vent to break into a room, beating a bunch of goons, then having a Quick-Time Events. It's not terrible but it's not new.
Another great batman game!goro3d | June 10, 2015 | See all goro3d's reviews »
My friend and I spent hours watching and taking turns playing this great game and much like Arkham City after a bit it starts to get hard but much like Arkham City you can still bring the fight to the baddies and toss them around and it's a welcome addition to any batman game collection :)! Worth getting and I like it :)!

The Arkham Series of games aren't just the best superhero video games of all-time, they might even have a stake at one the BEST video game series of all-time and if Arkham Knight is what it looks like, then that second statement might really be true. But the game I am reviewing right now is Batman Arkham Origins, a prequel to the first two Rocksteady games. This game shows the origins of the relationship between Batman and the Joker and really sets the table for what happens in the rest of the series. The great gameplay and combat from the other games in the series is here and that is awesome. The only true negative of the game is that it doesn't ADD anything to that experience to truly place it above the other games. Don't get me wrong, if this was the first one in the series, this game would of gotten a 95+ and we would of heralded it as GOTY. But, alas, it wasn't first, so it ends up living in the big shadow of the other two games. I love Arkham Origins. It is a great game and you should play it. The voice acting by relative newcomers is 80% as good as Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill and they do their job well. The story has many twists and really keeps you going. So if you liked the other games in the series and reviews kept you from picking this up, don't worry, you will love Arkham Origins because it is truly a great game.

i have played all batman arkham verse games but in this game we have seen and show how it all started and answered to many questions by the fans of arkham series . i liked the way they shown the batcave,bat plane. although the map is large compared to other batman games but the story made it to the compatibility of the game. and to say a bunch of side missions with awsome fights.

In this game you can use all skills a batman has.It is well designed game though its old it is good.You can use advance weapons like xray to scan and find the weak points and then attack.Like batman in movies you can drive a super car and use ropes.You can even use throwable weapons.It has good story too.In the Gotham city you can roam and do as you please.The best in this game is fighting you can use various combinations and action is good
