"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.

Let's start of with the story, the main story at least is sooo good i loved it it had some emotional moments in it and some epic moments i haven't played all the side mission but i just finished the main missions. This has been my third batman game if i'm right (batman arkham asylum was my first one). And what i love is the variation in all the batman games, gadget variation as well as a different story. This one was by far the most emotional one i have ever played (not that i cried but the story is so immersive!). Pro's; +Story is great! +Combat is smooth +Free-roam option +Many side stuff which you can play with for a while +Graphics/visuals are good Con's; -The game can be pretty glitchy sometimes which can be annoying (i raged a couple of times because of it) -Some boss fights are buggy -Multiplayer got shutdown :(
The story is about 8 villains who want to kill Batman...half of the villains stayed on secondary missions.Fight with Bane three times It becomes frustrating. For all its flaws, Batman: Arkham Origins is still a game I'd recommend to any fan of the series. I wouldn?t as readily recommend someone plays Origins before the other Arkham games despite being chronologically first though, as it may start any new comers out on the wrong foot with the franchise. In the end, despite borrowing too much from the previous titles in the Arkham series and not innovating enough in its own right, Arkham Origins is just more of the Batman we all know and love, which isn't too bad a thing if you ask me
As an origins story, the plot does justice to the Batman universe and as a prequel to Arkham Asylum. The fight mechanism is similar to all games in the franchise but the boss fights are taken up a notch and are made as unique to each super villain as possible. The detective sequences wherein Batman has to find clues and understand what happened at a crime scene are also much more fun than in the previous games, this time making it slightly more engaging. I have recently started playing it again, and I gotta say, it is _always_ satisfying to jump into a mob of baddies and punch them in the face while avoiding their attacks. The story is fun, the action is great, and who cares about 'mediocre detective work?' The point is you're BATMAN, so of course he's going to make deducing any crime scene trivial. Pros - Story - side mission - Combat Neutral - Hardcore mode is not even hardcore - Multiplayer - No enough playable character in challenge mode Cons - Bugs and glitches - Lifeless city - Some villain are disappointing - No riddles like in the previous games - Nothing really new Good game but it was a with small history maybe more next time but is good buy it now
es muy divertido este juego entretenido y es cien por ciento recomendable
Yes, this game in an of itself is nothing special. It didn't innovate, it only borrowed what Arkham City had already built. However, what it borrowed, it polished up nicely. This game could have worked as Arkham City DLC, and in my opinion is more enjoyable. Coming from someone who plays games and drops them, this game was good enough to replay and go achievement hunting, even though I never considered it for the others. tl;dr: It's a more polished Arkham City. If you want more of that, buy this. If you want innovation, look somewhere else.
