Gotham City Needs A Hero.
7 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Batman Arkham Asylum surpassed both video-game players and reviewers expectations tremendously back in 2009. The sequel, with even greater graphics and game-play did so even more two years later. Therefore a third Arkham game was inevitable.

Due to the events at the end of Arkham City, Arkham Origins is a prequel so some of Batman's old foes are resurrected. The game begins with the villain Black Mask placing a bounty on Batman's head on Christmas Eve. This attracts the attention of 8 super-assassins including Deathstroke, Bane, Lady Shiva, Deadshot. To top that all off Batman also comes across several side-super-villains like Edward Nygma, Penguin, Mad Hatter and The Joker.

Whilst the graphics are not as detailed as Arkham City, the game play is amazing. Its fast, slick and Batman is brutal. Sure there are glitches here and there but hopefully a patch will be released soon. The city is massive (although perhaps not as big as previews said but still). You can explore the industrial side of Gotham and the side that would eventually become 'Arkham City'. Plot-wise, a lot (and I mean A LOT) of it has been taken and expanded from Batman Begins. I have no problem with that though.

The game would get a 10 from me if it weren't for those bloody glitches though. Excellent game otherwise.
