Batman Arkham origins - review
17 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This title is a prequel which is sometimes hard to develop in the case of games. Game play wise this is stunning,continuing the great combat system and gadgets present in the previous arkham games along with some new ones,This without doubt is good enough to keep the feel of the game intact .visually arkham origins does a pretty good job, having the open world expanded up to twice as much as last time. adding Gotham city into the game is something worth taking a look at or roaming around as batman. One of the greatest things about the Arkham series was that it always gave the player an experiences as to how it feels to be batman. This time around they managed to keep the feeling just as great as the previous titles. Batman himself looks quite stunning in the game. The story for this game by far was one of the best written story in the series and can at least attain a title of top 10 best story games ever. The story gives of impressive character relation development between Batman, joker and a few other characters including Alfred(Bruce waynes butler). There are small flaws in the game like, frame lags at certain points. Its rarely seen in the game. Those who are here to get the game for its story, gameplay or being general fans of arkham games will be in for a blast. Especially the story. It is understandable why the new studios did not want to add too many things and change the games combat system or add major changes that can change the feel of the game. After all the combat and predator game play etc are what makes this series great.The boss fights are some of the most impressive stuffs in the game, boss fights seem more head on with the villain then making it look cinematic. The overall game was a great ride and only gets me hyped for the rumored sequel to arkham city under rocksteady.

gameplay : 9/10 Story: 10/10 visuals: 9/10 Feel of the game : 9.5/10 ovrall: 9.0/10

Dark,Thrilling and a Brilliant story
