4.0 out of 5 stars Batman + Castlevania = yes October 27, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard
When at first you play this game, you might think it's an action game on rails that doesn't leave much for exploration - but you'd be fortunately wrong. This game plays like Castlevania Mirrors of Fate should have played: that is to say, once you find new equipment that enhances the mechanics of the game, other areas of the game open up for you, which encourages exploration. The game is a 3D side-scroller but at times moves things to the 3D plane and does a really good job of it. If you've played any of the other Batman games you'll be familiar with the fighting system as well - it's pretty much the same here and that's a good thing.

The music is very good and atmospheric and fits nicely in the game - the same sort of fare from the other Batman games and even some of that Hans Zimmer feel from the Christopher Nolan films.

This game is a little mix of Zelda platforming/puzzling with a bit of Castlevania back-tracking exploration. The way the game flows is something akin to a God of War game. You can't really 'explore' where you're going at each and every turn, per se, because the way your character interacts with the levels is sort of 'on rails' as mentioned earlier - but like God of War, you CAN still venture off the beaten path to other hidden areas. There's definitely room for exploration here. There's also the element of the detective mode, which reveals secrets and gameplay hints in the form of telling you what this door is or how that panel might turn on from a sudden burst of electricity, etc.

All in all, if you've been on the lookout for a solid action game on the 3DS you really can't go wrong here. The comic book style delivery of the story's cut scenes works well and any fan of Batman should enjoy this game. Any fan of the genre will too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than its prequel November 27, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was really excited for the release of Batman: Arkham Origins, even though I knew it was going to be made by a different company than the previous games in the series. My excitement waned a little when I heard the game was going to be released in portable consoles too, as the more platforms a game is released on, the less the quality (usually). Then, my excitement grew even more than before, since I heard that not only the game was going to be made by different developers from the other versions, but it was going to be a Metroidvania style, one of my favorites. And it was actually going to be a different story, a sequel to Origins.

I played Origins on PS3 first, and I was quite dissapointed with it. A cumbersome story, lots of terrible bugs, unresponsive controls and a general lack of care hampered what, in its roots, could have been a great, really fun experience (which it was, when the game worked properly). Then, I got my hands on Blackgate and, boy, oh, boy! It is SO much better.

The first thing you're bound to notice is that it's more or less the same style than other Arkham games. With a dark look, and more or less the same gameplay but in a 2D space. The game looks great, although in close-ups (like when Batman finishes a fight) the low-res textures and polygons become very noticeable, and the really dark look makes it a little hard to see when there's too much light around (better to play with electric light or no lights at all). Still, there are no slowdowns or bugs. The gameplay is fluid and quick, except maybe in the fights, which aren't very well implemented. They're too simple, so there's no real strategy to them, same with predator areas.

Where this game excels, though, is in the exploration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Formulated, Addictive & Well Done April 26, 2014
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I was hesitant about getting the PS3 and Wii U versions because i know the 3rd installment was NOT made by the folks at Rocksteady and a lot of the online reviews noted that the third one just wasn't as great as expected. Anyways, i decided to get the Nintendo 3DS version instead and it was a Gold Box deal and i have absolutely no regrets. This game is formulated, yet it delivers and it is addictive and well made. I know some of these other hack and slash games seem formulated as well such as (i.e. Thor), but this one seems to nail it on the bulls eye and it just works.

Batman does a lot of swinging around in his batarang while cashing down Catwoman, fights some bad guys, opens closed hatches, does some crawling Metal Gear style, fights some bad guys, swings around some more, opens closed hatches, and a lot of repetition. For some reason, this formula doesn't disappoint here. The music is great to and gets one hyped up when it starts pounding on as the fight scenes between the thugs begins. By the way, all the thugs are wearing the same clothes. Nothing inventive there. Would have been nice to have them change it up, but they didn't. I would recommend this version to anyone who has a Nintendo 3DS, 2DS, or a PS Vita. I am not sure if this is a direct port of the PS3 version so i won't say anything else except that this game is original in its own right.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate isn't a great game, but I did enjoy playing it for the eight short hours it took me to beat it, so I think it deserves three (almost four) stars for that much. Objectively, though, it's a too-short game with some technical issues and a lack of features that don't make it worth its asking price.

As it is well-known by now, BAOB is considered to fall within the 2D "Metroidvania" genre. True, it features some Metroidvania activities, such as back-tracking to open new areas with a new tool. But as another reviewer also mentioned, as you're playing you can't help but feel that you're being led in a certain direction the whole time. In the great Metroidvanias, such as Symphony of the Night or even the original Metroid, the game required some trial and error and exploration. It was possible to get lost and be in danger as you backtracked to safety and the correct path. In BAOB, I never felt that I would get lost. I felt that I chose my path early on and the game determined the rest.

Still, I had fun finding game secrets, such as health or armor upgrades. This is probably where it most successfully felt like a Metroidvania game. I didn't find everything, because apparently it's not possible to get all of the secrets in one play through. One secret item in particular, Batman's secret armor sets, which derive from various story arcs in the comic series (New 52, etc.), can apparently only be completed by playing through the game multiple times.

This is unfortunate, because there is really no good reason to play through the game more than once, especially with so many other good games waiting to be played. One good reason for that is the obnoxious boss fights. Ok, maybe one or two boss fights in particular.
