Batman: Arkham Origins Review

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgYes I know another Batman post.  That is because I finished the story mode and just about all the side missions in Batman: Arkham Origins.  If you liked the first two Arkham games you will like this one as well.  They all pretty much play the same.  Origins dose bring some new gadgets.  Which is nice.  Enjoyed the combat much better in this game than the last one.   Think this is because I got better at the timing.  Of course there are boss battles in this game.  I have a very strong dislike of boss battles.  Was surprised that I had fun with a few of these battles.  One that stands out is the one with Firefly.  One of the new things in the game is the crime scene investigation.  When at a crime scene you look for clues and then backtrack to find out what really happened.  Its hard to explain but it is very well done.  The only main fault with the game is the cut scenes.  They looks great but they skip/stutter and some times the audio drops out.  Not sure why.  This being the third game in the series those kind of bugs should be worked out.

This is another awesome Batman game.  Some people don’t like  it much because it was made by different company.  That doesn’t matter because the game is fun.  It’s not a very long game.  If you just power thought all the story line it wouldn’t last long.  Half the fun is the side missions and upgrading your gear.  Had lots of fun playing this game.  It well worth the money.  Am sure you can find it cheap lots of place.  Which most are asking around $40.

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgNot ready to review Batman: Arkham Origins yet.  How ever put in a good amount a time to talk about it a bit.  First off it is more Batman which is awesome.  A bit of the downside is the world.  It’s basically the same map from Arkham City.  Would have been nice to see some more or different spots.  There are some new gadgets with are cool.  Later in the game you get these shock gloves which are fun to use.  When in a fight and get a good multiplier you can activate them and take down the bad guys even faster.   The only thing I am not liking is when there is a cut scene it hiccup/skip which is annoying.  I know the game is made by a different game maker but they you all the same tech. Beinf the third game to use this tech there shouldn’t be any problems.  Will be back with a fun review when done playing the game.

BatmanArkhamOriginsHave been the game Batman: Arkham Origins for a little while now but never opened.  Well last night decided it would be time to try it out.  Loved the first two Arkham games so this one should be good as well.  Seen lots of video for this game, which looked awesome.  After it was installed and booted up.  It does look great.  Just like the last game.  Played about 40 minutes and so far it is all most exactly the same as the last game.  The way you interact with the world (so far) is all so exactly the same as well.  This is not a bad thing but it would have been nice to see some new animations.   For example, the way you pull covers off of the air vents is the same right down to they way look and how you move thought them.   The story so far is pretty good.  This game takes before the other games.  Batman is about two years in being “The Batman”.  Think is good, it has him seen some of these bad guys for the first time.  So far am liking the game.  Just have to get back into the swing of the combat.

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgHave picked up a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins.  It was on sale for $40 so I had to get it.  This is one of the games on my  have to get and play list.  Loved the first to Arkham games so I think this one will be awesome as well.  Mind you I haven’t played it yet.  That is because I am still playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  So now I have three new unopened games on my desk.  One being Arkham Origins next is Sly Cooper Thieves in Time then Dishonored.  Not sure what to play after Black Flag.  It will be hard to decided what to play.  Might have to flip a coin.  Never had this many games just setting there not played.  Most times I get a game play it until I done with it then get a new one.  May be any one reading this can help me out.  Pick one you think I should play and leave it in the comments section.
