Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii U | Edition: Standard

You've hidden in the shadows and tied enemies to the ceiling beams in Batman: Arkham Asylum. You've leapt from the rooftops and put fear into the hearts of criminals in Batman: Arkham City. Now see how The Batman earned his reputation and started his one-man war on the criminals of Gotham City in Batman: Arkham Origins. Taking place before Batman: Arkham Asylum, this prequel will feature Batman meeting many of his greatest enemies for the very first time. It's going to be less handshaking and more flying Batarangs and bullets. You'll also see some new faces among Batman's rogues gallery, including the creepy and incredibly malicious Black Mask.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good so far! October 25, 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Edition:Standard
The game looks pretty nice on my Wii U! I haven't beaten the game yet but as of now its pretty intense and feels a bit more serious then the last Batman Arkham games. The only gripes I have with the game is that it feels and looks too similar to Arkham City and it does not have as many gamepad functions as the Armored Edition but other then that its still pretty awesome and its a nice edition for any Wii U collection. The Gamepad still has the radio chatter and Alfred talking through the gamepad and the map on the gamepad screen but the hacking and radio signals are no longer touch based, you also have to hold ZL and use the D-Pad to select your gadgets as they do not show up on the gamepad. One other thing is that the season pass and pre order codes are not working as of now but thats probably just because the servers are not updated yet.

The game is compatible with the Wii U Gamepad and the Wii U Pro Controller. It also supports off-TV play as well.

UPDATE: The Deathstroke pre-order bonus code that it comes with is now working.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good golly gee willikers Batman this game is fun! October 25, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well I haven't beaten the game yet. I am only about 5 hours in, but I have seen so many mixed reviews on the big name review sites I just wanted to let people who enjoyed the first two Arkhams know that this one is just as great in my opinion. Not better, but just as great. First of all this is the Wii U version obviously and everyone was throwing it under the bus because of no multiplayer. I play Arkham games for the single player experience so I don't care that it is missing, but it is something to consider for those of you that do. I got it for ten bucks cheaper though so there's that. Now the PC version is also ten bucks cheaper and as far as I know includes multiplayer. It was a choice between PC and Wii U and I am glad I chose the Wii U, here is why:

*Graphics and Performance:The graphics look outstanding on the Wii U(looks better than AC Armored Edition) and the performance is also much better than the Armored Edition. It has a solid frame rate with the very occasional one second slow down. It looks incredibly crisp on my TV and has excellent textures. The only improvements PC has over it that I have seen from videos are the Physx and Tesselation effects. I have only encountered one minor bug which was a baddie after kicking his butt, he fell through the floor and only his head appeared.

*Gamepad.I guess my only complaint so far is hacking is not as fun as it was in Armored Edition(not a big deal though) and it doesn't have all the same gamepad features, but it still has some of them. The map is there and works just like AE. It doesn't have the remote control batarang on the gamepad and you can't pick gadgets from it either(those are selected with the D-pad). It does have the wonderful off-tv play. The detective mode is there and in this game it is unbelievable cooler.

After Arkham City: Armored Edition, I had very high hopes for this game. In AC, great use was made of the Wii U game pad. The map was always up, you could select locations, control your weapons, and in they even integrated it into the game such that Batman had a touch pad on his forearm. When you through a remote controlled batarang, you directed it using the pad.

This time, the developer seemed to get lazy. The only benefit of the game pad was to have an always on map, which was great but in light of what I expected, quite a disappointment. The game is really good but I am reviewing it as how it was presented on the Wii U and considering that they did not make use of the game pad, I was disappointed.

The game pad is really an amazing gaming device. I understand why third parties do not like it though. For the PS and Xbox, it is the exact same game being produced, just for different systems. To make a great Wii U game requires more effort and changes to the game which they do not seem to be willing to make which is a shame. I am looking forward to Watchdogs for the Wii U as the game with all the hacking and the main character always using a smart tablet/phone to hack seems made for the Wii U but we will have to wait and see. My review does not take into account that the Wii U version offers no online play (as I believe is offered in the other two systems) but as I knew this going in, it would be wrong to ding it for that.

If you have another system, I would still purchase it for the Wii U over either the PS or Xbox. Simply having an always on map makes it much better but comparing to what could have and what should have been, it is disappointing. Even if the map had some functionality, I would have been greatly pleased but instead, you just get a static map. If you want to set a way point, you still have to do it through the controller menu which is silly when I should have been able to just touch the location on my map to set it.

First, allow me to specifically note that this review applies only for the massively under represented Wii U version of the game. That said, a lot of what I write here will likely apply to the 360/PS3/PC versions - but it's important to note that I have had zero hands on time with other versions.

Batman: Arkham Origins, as you likely know, depicts a much younger Bruce Wayne/Batman and acts as a prequel to the earlier Batman: Arkham Asylum game. It essentially depicts Batman's first encounter with several key characters in the Batman universe, none of which I'll spoil here. Story wise, Arkham Origins ins excellent, clearly an equal to if not better than the stories depicted in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City - and I do not compare those games lightly. Though the story starts slow and doesn't pick up steam until around after the second or third hour, once it picks up it doesn't let go, bringing you on a roller coaster ride that doesn't let up until the grand finale.

Before I get into actual gameplay, I'd like to point out that yes, the reports are true - Batman veteran voice actors Kevin Conroy (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and Mark Hamill (Joker) do not reprise their roles in this game. That is undoubtably disappointing. But that said, the new voice actors aren't bad; Roger Craig Smith, the new Batman, does his best to bring a younger, grittier twist on the Batman character - though the results are inconsistent, they're never annoying. Meanwhile, Troy Baker - Joker - offers up what I would consider a performance of a lifetime, managing to make the role entirely his own while catering to fans of Hamill's Joker all in one foul swoop. Baker is exemplary as The Joker.

If you like Arkham Assylum/ Arkham City, you will like this game. However, this one didn't feel like it was nearly as specialized towards the WII U capabilities as City was.
