I purchased this game new and it was unopened when I received it. When I put the disc in my computer to download it it asked for the pc key code. I looked through the whole box and I couldn't find it. I thought I may have dropped it but it was not anywhere on the floor around me. I looked at the game manual and called Warner Brothers game support. I told them that my new game I purchased was without a key code. They sent me an email for me show them an invoice as proof that i purchased the game. I had to send multiple emails to them to respond and they said that the buyer that I purchased it from was a third party seller and that I should ask for a refund from the company I purchased it from. I later googled this issue and found out that this same problem had happened to multiple people. This was a mass product defect and I was given a refund through the seller that I purchased it from but I asked warner bros about this topic and they have not responded. This game looks really good but I am sadly not able to play it. The warner bros help support is very bad I had to email them multiple times to get a response from them. If you google batman arkham origins product code location you can click on the first link and see all these reviews about the same problem.

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.

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:

Story:

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.

Upon my initial play through, about halfway through, I couldn't help but wonder why this game got so much hate. Yes, it's repetitive. Yes, the story's not great. Yes, it copies virtually everything from Arkham City (even half of the map). Even so, it was very entertaining, and fun to be the Batman again, pummeling criminals and swooping around a pre-disaster Gotham.

Then I started paying attention o the tech tree and the challenges, and I realized that they were organized in a way that they could only be completed, one after the other, in a list. Want to get the gliding badge? Tough, you have to wait until you complete several other options first. You can't choose what upgrades you want - you have to follow the tree to the letter, and even then, some of the options only open up upon completing challenges. This brings the game's most glaring failing, one that cause me to swear profusely when it dawned on me: the Predator challenges that you have to complete in story mode can be COMPLETELY missed if you don't do them at the exact right time in the story mode. Enemies don't respawn in the Predator maps in story mode. If you don't complete the challenges then, you have to do them in New Game Plus or I Am The Night. It's a shockingly awful failure, and whoever came up with this idea doesn't have any business making games, especially ones whose predecessors are among the best all time. Good job, Montreal and WB, on your incompetence.

I also want to echo that, for a supposed "unrefined" Batman, this one is the exact same as the one in Arkham City, right down to the combat moves. Oh, and the tech being better here than it is over a decade later in game continuity. Stupid.
