Likes:Brilliant Batman Origin Story. Great to see how the villians have evolved throughout the games in comparison to the previous titles.
Dislikes:Multiplayer is online. Robin is not in the main story, but he is a playable character in the online multiplayer.
There still seem to be a few issues during gameplay, especially involving the cape, where the cape renders through an enemy. I have also experienced thugs getting caught in walls or vehicles. These glitches are far and few throughout the game, which is brilliant considering the kind of errors I have encountered in other titles.
The one thing that I really do want, and wish was included in the collector’s edition is the soundtrack – yet another game with a very memorable soundtrack. The other audio throughout the game is spot on and I haven’t experienced any errors or non-explanatory sounds throughout the game. The one thing I did pick up on and was that the explosions were louder than the rest of the games.
This game would be loved by any Batman fan, and if you have not played either of the first two titles I would suggest starting here. You can always get the previous titles once you have finished this game. There is just so much to do. Some side missions and puzzles can only be solved once you have received gadgets available later in the game. The side missions can be done as you, the gamer, sees fit. This does help to further upgrade your available gadgets and the capabilities of each, as well as you stealth take downs and combat skills.
Batman: Arkham Origins is nothing short of its predecessors and is proof that games can be handed to a new studio and still feel like it should. All events in this game are to take place on one night. Apart from the main story there are a lot side quests and detective cases to puzzles and challenges that all add a lot of flavour to this Batman title.
