After playing through the beautiful game of Tomb Raider, I played through Batman: Arkham Origins.
Let’s see where this goes.
This game is fun and pretty interesting in regards to the story and missions that you must complete.
I sincerely expected something incredible, but it was a bit of the same thing as the previous two installments. (Technically they’re in the time frame after Origins, but you get the gist)
The combat and gadgets are all the same essentially. The batarang, bat claw, glue grenades and many others return, but you’ll have a few less than the previous, future tense games. This only makes sense, considering it is in the past and some what the beginning of the big bad bat.
I don’t want to dwell too much on this review because it’s very similar to the other two Arkham games, just with a different story and some insight to how Batman and The Joker came to be. It also includes a superstar cast of villains as well. You’ll see Bane, Black Mask, Death Stroke, Copperhead, The Penguin, Electrocutioner, Anarchy, Killer Croc and a few other bad guys from the Batman world. Don’t be so serious, you’ll see some cool allies as well. Alfred is here and you’ll see the beginning of the alliance between Batman and Gordon.
All in all, this game is wonderful and very fun with plenty of side missions and extras that you can dive into. As with the other games, the main story line is short, but this makes room for additional content and interactions with other familiar villains through side missions.
I give Batman: Arkham Origins 7 bat caves out of 10. (7/10)
The game was great; it was just similar to the older two. This is good and makes me feel a little more familiar with the game, but the story was still short and some of the boss battles were a little lack luster with no follow up information on the villains you beat. It was worth the $30 I paid for it, but I honestly wouldn’t pay much more. Still, a kudos for another great game about Batman. :3
Onward to Lost Planet 3. J
