Lonnie Machin: I'm so glad you came. It's an honour, really. There's so much for us to discuss!
Batman: What do you want?
Lonnie Machin: I'd like to propose an alliance! I think the two of us could accomplish great things together!
Batman: I don't work with criminals! You need to turn yourself in!
Lonnie Machin: Tell you what, I'll turn myself in as soon as you do the same! But you don't consider yourself a criminal, do you? The suit, the gadgets, the sense of entitlement... you're just another rich kid atoning for his fiscal sins! Such a shame...

Game Of The Year??
12 November 2013 | by Jason McAvoySee all my reviews

Batman: Arkham Origins is the next adaptation in the Batman: Arkham Games. This game has got to be the best free roaming game I have ever played! The combat system has been thoroughly improved. The Challenge mode now has an increased difficulty! there is a better variety of Enemies in this game! Unlike (Arkham Asylum)the boss battles are actually fair and playable. The best part for me about the Challenge mode would ultimately have to be playing as Deathstroke! I loved Free Flowing 100 enemies with a steel pipe! The story is also better! Playing as the young Bruce Wayne makes me feel as though I'm restarting the story of Batman again. Thats all I have to say. Overall I think this is the best game of 2013 and can't wait for the next adaptation.
