3.0 out of 5 stars All over the place November 5, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
This game is turning me manic depressive as I get ups and downs regarding it. At it's best, this game is superior to the previous 2, building on their legacy and the legacy of the characters themselves. BUT at its worse, it's an ugly glitch mess which should not be bought until a price drop and several more patches.
The good is simple, everything you liked about Arkham City as far as game play goes, is back in full force and no one should be disappointed. How it all gels together though is to be desired.
Now for the bad:


Now, my favourite aspect of a game's story is the level of urgency (hence why Bioshock 1 is my least favourite of the 3 and why I just never got into the Last of Us (and probably wouldn't care much for 2 souls)). I dont feel the initial rush I felt in either Asylum or City. Man, those games were great at the beginning, so immersive. This one left me a bit in the cold (HA! Cause it's winter...). The story seemed hap hazard, which makes sense for a more open world game. This game, more unlike the other two, wants to be an open world game where you are Batman doing whatever Batman has to do, confronting a bunch of villains a night. I prefer stories where the city is actually at stake, rather than my own life (or rather, Batman's life). This game is more personal and more akin to an open world game like Skyrim than a metroid vania type game with a singular story.

I absolutely LOVED it in City, when Hugo Strange executed his protocol and you had no choice but to follow the story line. And of course you (well, I) would, because there is no way Batman would go around beating some thugs up or trying to capture Hush when there are helicopters shooting bombs on everyone. That rush was insane. And yes, it was crafted that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deathstroke DLC is Available in Challenge Mode October 25, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I purchased the game from Amazon for activation and download via Steam. There was no problem with importing the purchase into Steam with my code and I was able to pre-load the game. I was able to verify the Deathstroke DLC after downloading. The DLC does not appear in the 'properties' tab as DLC like it does with most game's DLC with Steam. I found it by starting a new game and choosing Deathstroke in Challenge Mode.

Overall the game is everything I've expected from the previous games. A dark and gripping Batman story that fits right into the Arkham Saga, plenty of action and incredible graphics.

I purchased an xBox 360 controller specifically for games like this one. This game works perfectly with that controller. Free look is a little awkward with the xBox controller, but other than that I prefer it over keyboard and mouse. The keyboard/mouse combo isn't horrible, but it's obvious the game controls were optimized for console controllers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Direct to DVD Die Hard October 26, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I was one of the few who thought Arkham City was better than Arkham Asylum. City was short and bumpy, but I just liked the smoother gameplay and the fantastic story. Asylum was mind blowing, for about two hours. After that, nearly every boss is a bane clone all the way until the final Joker. Other than the great Scarecrow encounters, the second half - and ending - was a huge disappointment.

Arkham Origins is a weird game. It looks much better than City with some decent DirectX stuff, but the game is all over the place. The map is largely recycled from City. The flow of the story is really messy, and it just reeks of Direct to Cable or Direct to DVD. All the "secret sauce" from the last two Rocksteady games is completely absent and there is a general lack of attention to detail. All the level and encounter hopping feels arbitrary and unmotivated. The combat is not only massively easier, it is missing some memorable touches. There is no longer a loud thunderclap for downing the last guy in a group battle. Bats just fly out and you get the XP but that satisfying thunderclap is gone.

The voice acting is pretty spot on, but the whole production feels like a cheap knock off. Crime scene investigations are expanded but also feel overly simplistic and I think they are a missed opportunity to do something different and better than the last games. Arkham City has it's problems, most I can't argue with. But it was not only polished but paced well and full of drama. If Arkham Asylum was Die Hard, then Arkham City was, obviously, Escape from New York. There's nothing great to compare Origins to at all. In general the game is fun and plays pretty much like the other two games, but the whole experience has been completely unmemorable.

3.0 out of 5 stars a broken gem November 2, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
Obviously a very polarizing game for a number of legitimate reasons. As someone who put over 300 hours combined (according to Steam) on the previous Arkham games, I have been looking forward to this game all year. I wasn't expecting miracles out of it, but Arkham City is one of my favorite games of all time, so if it had any of that magic, I was on board. The good news is - the game, the story, the production value - all fantastic. The bad news is that the PC version of this game is so riddled with bugs, glitches, and game-stopping nonsense that you may not be able to even progress through the story.

I have personally encountered at least two dozen serious bugs and have had to restart the game several times due to game-stoppers - bugs which halt your progress entirely. To be fair, the devs have released a couple of patches intending to fix the issues, but the patches have been bringing in much more serious bugs than those they fix. Just yesterday, a patch was released that broke THE ENDING OF THE GAME. I'm sure that will be fixed before long, but this game has been a non-stop hassle for over a week since release. It's so plainly obvious that the game wasn't finished yet, but shipped anyway to meet the deadline.

Despite all this, there is a great game beneath the hassle, and once they fix the problems it will be well worth playing, but I can't recommend it now. Maybe rent it for one of the consoles and wait for a deep discount on the PC version. It will probably be very cheap during the Christmas sales.
