Very Good, Underrated By Most Critics
22 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Batman Arkham Origins is a very impressive game. Before I continue remember origins is definitely the worst of the 3 games hover its still very good. My analysis on this game is... Smooth gameplay, OK storyline, Good characters and very good structure in association with the other two Arkham games. A lot of people think that Origins is not cannon to City and Asylum, but it is. In my opinion this game shows great depth when portraying the relationship between Batman and The Joker. There is only one serious problem with this video game, when you play the game you just don't get the same feeling you get when you play Asylum and City. In this game, however the gameplay is smoother and there are much more variations of combat. it deserves a 9.2/10. I would definitely recommend this game, especially on the Xbox 360 console. The other two games, however, should be played on PlayStation realistically. However ,my console of choice would be Xbox 360.
