Borderline false advertising
on October 26, 2013
If you're like me, you saw the photo of the "Collector's Edition" for Batman: Arkham Origins and thought to yourself, "I can't afford to not buy that!" It sure seemed like you were getting an awful lot for $120 and man, did you see that statue? You cleared a space on your shelf for the gorgeous statue with bright LED lit screens, each clearly displaying a villain, cartoon, or whatever. Your package came and you patiently went through the contents, pretending to care about some Batwing specifications, knowing that waiting for you at the very bottom was that statue. You carefully unwrap the tape around the styrofoam protecting the statue and pull it out and... oh. It's basically a kid's toy. It feels incredibly plastic and disposable, the floor is warped on the right side, and the whole thing feels oddly empty. That's alright, those sweet LED screens will make this baby glow. Put in the batteries, flip the switch, and... oh. The screens barely light up and the images are blurry and nearly impossible to make out. I'm not sure how WB can legally present a product to be a certain way and end up delivering something so inferior, but I feel a little taken. Let me assure you, you can afford to not buy this.
This is for the exclusive content of the Collector's Edition only. I haven't played the game enough to rate it.
