If you're looking for another Arkham game, this isn't it. What it is, is the very first decent 2d batman game ever made, that isn't Mario. I know, compared to the open world, huge cities, and the zelda like first game, this one is nothing special, but on it's own, it's a rather fun platforming game, that is about batman, both story and gadget wise. If it's on a sale, I recommend trying it.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is a 2.5D platformer which is definitely a must have for Batman Arkham Series fans, especially for its beautiful and engaging story! although the combat system and graphics is not as good as an Arkham series game and has many flaws and boss fights are not challenging at all compared to other Batman Arkham games, but still can be considered some kind of acceptable , in the game you play as Batman and investigate some incidents which happened in the Blackgate prison and only after a little spending time you will get used to game's controls and combat system. So I repeat again this game has a really interesting and compelling story if you are a fan of Batman Arkham Series and if so you should not miss this one at least for it's story!
You have to admit that unfortunately you can hear and feel that this is a conversion from portable consoles. The graphics in the game are pretty average (except for the phenomenally made comic film inserts), the game also has clunky controls and this is very annoying. However, the storyline is good and the fact that we meet a lot of famous criminals from the Universe Batman also makes you want to play. I only recommend to the hardcore fans of Batman, others will not enjoy.
This game is nothing less and nothing more than a port from 3DS and Playstation Vita - it's the same game, only on the big screen of your PC. The only and most interesting difference between this game and the main Batman Arkham series is that it is 2,5D, which is actually interesting concept, but it's sadly done poorly. Story is good and it's the only reason that will keep you playing. Pick it up when on discount, then it will be totally worth it, because there is not enough content to justify full price.
If you're looking for a fun addition to the Batman franchise, I'd recommend it. If you're looking for a good platformer, hold off on it. For now. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate adds a good story upon Arkham Origins' original one that will keep any Batman fan interested to the end. However, in terms of gameplay, it's not too good. Not for a Batman game nor a platformer.
