I am not a gamer that is close or follows the Batman story or development outside the games/movies. So whatever story is developed I enjoy very much. I just play games because I enjoy them. I remember trying the demo for Asylum and loved it because I fell in love with the fight system. I'm a perfectionist and the fight system really challenges me and also annoys me when I know I can do better. With that being said I am glad WB Montreal kept the fighting/predator system the same. Here are my thoughts of how I view the game of just being a gamer.
Here are some of bad things first for some people:
1. Lack of innovation: This might drive some players crazy because there is not really anything new to the fighting/predator moments. At the same time if you are a fan of the older games...why change something that is great? There are some new things that were added but not much different from the base of the old games. The only new things seem to be the detective mode, where scanning crime scenes go more in depth and you need to find evidence. There is also multi-player which I have not tried yet.
2. Lifeless: Since this is a prequel you are doing missions across Gotham city and of course Arkham City before it was converted for the inmates in AC. I wanted to see civilians in the street and traffic but there was nothing. In AC there were those helicopters flying around and would follow you if they spotted you, there's not much going on in the air this time around and I felt alone in the city which should be full of life.Read more ›
i've always loved Batman since i can remember, and these days there seems to be no shortage of Batman to go round!
over the years we've been Lucky enough to experience some truly amazing Batman comics, cartoons, toys, movies and video games.
unfortunately we've also been duped every so often into falling for the shameless license exploiting cash grabs!
after playing through some awesome moments in 'Arkham Origins' i honestly believe the makers REALLY wanted to make a great game
a game they could be proud of and one that we'd all praise and love!
but due to whatever reason the game is quite amiss in a number of many MANY areas!!!!
now before i start picking it apart i'd like to say that i'm glad i bought it and am getting enjoyment from it for the most part, .....BUT
i just can't begin to describe JUST how choppy the game plays!
ESPECIALLY the hand to hand combat!!!
i mean, that's the whole meat and potatoes of the game right there!!!
though while not completely unplayable it's hit or miss, and i do mean that literally!!!
this games big draw is the HUGE amount of Boss battles and when you face off in a very long drawn out battle where split decision precision timing means the difference between winning and having to restart a level all over again, it gets very VERY frustrating!!!
speaking of restarting from the beginning? IF you DARE try 'i am the night' if you die it's game over and you to have to restart from the VERY beginning of the game! highly increased difficulty coupled with faulty gameplay, this mode is only recommended to the most hardcore or those who want an ulcer?Read more ›
The biggest issue, which from what I've looked into online is very common - is corrupted saves. I put about 6hrs into the game, came down this morning to play only to find out my save is corrupted and I have to start over. I'm reading on forums that this is happening on xbox, ps3, on the cloud or on the hard drive. Some people have had it happen multiple times, some people have it happen at the end of the game.
Personally I'm going to try to get a refund on this game. Returns policies on software suck. But really, it's just like anything else. The game is defective, I want my money back. The WB support forums say that their developers are working on the issue, but that's not going to bring my game back, only (hopefully) prevent it from happening in the future.
Anyway, if you want this game. WAIT. Wait for them to release a patch or you're just buying yourself a ton of frustration.

This game froze for me four times during a single playthrough. If it wasn't for freezing issues and glitches, this would be a good game. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Jonathan S.

This game gets a lot of crap, but I love it.
Not as good as Asylum and especially not City but it's heart is in the right place.
