Über das Spiel

Batman: Arkham Origins (Entwickler: WB Games Montréal) wartet mit einem riesigen Gotham City und einer Original-Story auf, die etliche Jahre vor den Geschehnissen in Batman: Arkham Asylum und Batman: Arkham City (den beiden vielgerühmten Vorgänger-Titeln des Franchise) spielt. Vor dem Aufstieg von Gotham Citys gefährlichsten Ganoven lernen die Spieler einen jungen, ungeschliffenen Batman kennen, der in der Anfangsphase seiner jungen Karriere als Verbrechensbekämpfer jenen einschneidenden Moment erlebt, der ihn später zum Dunklen Ritter werden lässt. Im Verlauf der Geschichte treffen die Spieler zum ersten Mal auf viele wichtige Charaktere und knüpfen entscheidende Beziehungen.

An sich ein klasse Game. Super Story und Steuerung ist fantastisch. Aber leider hat das Spiel mindestens zwei gamebreaking bugs die nur durch einen kompletten Neustart der Story (möglicherweise) behoben werden können. Ich habe das Spiel nach etwa einer Stunde Spielzeit noch einmal von vorn begonnen und müsste es jetzt kurz vor Ende der Hauptstory, nach etwa 14 Stunden, wieder von vorn beginnen.

Wirklich schade darum.... :(

Arkham Origin does not belong to Arkham Trilogy (not made by Rocksteady). It is a prequel of the Arkham Asylum. Lots of things and characters in Arkham Origin (and the DLC Cold, Cold Heart) that later, in terms of time, play some major roles in Arkham Asylum, adding throughout explanations and backgrounds to Asylum’s story about why certain characters act those ways. But as for gameplay, it is the enhanced version of Arkham City, with almost the same mechanisms, though without multiple character can be used, and polished graphics.

Though Arkham Origin is not counted into the trilogy and sometimes neglected by players, it actually has breakthrough in narrative compared to the last title. Arkham Origin goes much deeper into psychology of characters, namely, the wild card Joker and the determined Batman, compared to Arkham City. You can see the characters do not just act in certain ways without reasons. There are beliefs there, leading to their behaviors. Those lines and descriptions for insights of characters are pretty powerful and I am deeply impressed.

The story is impressive as well. The young Batman is bountied by the most powerful criminal mind at that time. Eight notorious assassins are sent to kill Batman while he tries to end it by capturing the criminal mind and all the assassins. But soon he discovered there is a bigger scheme behind waiting for him. It is very much like a novel. I mean, you don’t see many plots and twists cause most game stories tend to be straightforward, but here, the script can literally be used to shot a movie.

Pros and cons:

+ High congruence. This franchise is one of the best franchise I every played in terms of congruence. The game is neat, in order and enjoyable to play. There are no surprises in gameplay, meaning you will never be asked to do anything you don’t know what to do. Also, every step for each “level” is carefully designed. You will feel very natural doing them.
+ Good story and impressive insights of characters.
+ Decent graphics with great optimization.
+ Some details. I really enjoy seeing those scratches in the surface of the metal Batman armor.
+ Combat is interesting. For different assassins and bosses the fights are all different. I think it is interesting.

- Arkham Origin is an open world game and the open world part is such a let down. The open world is static. Nothing happens if you are not around. And there is no impressive scenery or anything interesting, just a bunch of thugs for you to beat.
- Scenes, and the whole world in Origin are pretty dark. It is the traditional color tone of the franchise. Still, it is depressing.
- Repetition. You do lots of things that are similar. It is a common issue of the franchise, but when the open world gets involved, it is worse. Luckily, even including the open world the game is not extremely long (does not mean it is not long) so it should be fine.

I really like in Cold, Cold Heart where Batman can change into different bat suit with different functionality. This is so cool and I am expecting more. Can’t wait to play Arkham Knight.

[h1]Batman™: Arkham Origins is part one in an amazing four game franchise.[/h1]
I played this series in almost the worst order possible. 3,2,1,4.
  • For a sneaky detective we sure can sneakily kick some butt.
  • Stealth attacks chip away at those enemy gangs before we enter full com-Bat. [spoiler]ikr I went there.[/spoiler]
  • Long potential combos in combat which employs great counter attacks.
  • Plenty of sleuthing and puzzle solving.
  • Bat tools and gadgets.
  • Getting those basic suit upgrades feels like we've been cheated.
  • Some great fights: [spoiler]Deadstroke fight is tight[/spoiler]
  • I still need the seasons pass for this one, so zero DLC played for me so far.

[h1]My Honest Thoughts on Batman Arkham Origins[/h1]
Batman Arkham Origins is a VERY GOOD game. The problem is that it isn’t as ground breaking like Asylum, City or Knight. Expectations were high and It also didn't help either that a lot of the game is a rehash of Arkham City. Origins introduces a much younger and inexperienced Batman and features prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

[h1]Pros[/h1]
-The story has great moments and makes good use of characters.
-Character development is so well done in this game; you can actually feel Bruce Wayne's pain and anger. Interacting with Alfred from time to time also shows the tension of their parent-child relationship throughout the game and how it matures by the end.
-The combat needs no introduction. Free-flow combat once again makes its return. It’s fun, its smooth and overall satisfying.
-Boss fights are badass, epic and designed really well. Might as well have the best boss fights in the series.
-As with all the Arkham games thus far, the cutscenes are very good and cinematic.
-Side missions and activities can be a good distraction from the story missions.
-One of my favorite additions was the detective mode, enabling you to reconstruct crime scenes with shimmering 3D holograms through them to hunt for clues. There’s a lot more crime solving elements now.
-I was a little nervous about Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill being replaced but the voice acting by Roger Craig Smith as a younger Bruce Wayne/Batman and Troy Baker as Joker is impressive.
-Performance rating after every successful enemy encounter like Devil May Cry series.
-Graphically Arkham Origins is a good-looking game with high production values. The textures are sharp, the lighting is good. Origins is visually superior to the previous two, but there is no noticeable improvement over Arkham City. Anti-aliasing is better than most games that came before it. Most DirectX 11 features are present and enhance the visuals and gameplay in every way possible in Unreal Engine 3.

[h1]Cons[/h1]
-Misleading title. One of my biggest complaints about this game is the fact that this is neither an Origin story nor does it have anything to do with Arkham. If you're a fan, you'll get a sense that they're trying to tease some of the stuff you overhear in “Arkham Asylum” but never that was really was the focus of the storyline.
-One of the most boring open world; would have received much better reception had they made the boundaries much tighter like its predecessors. Although its “functional” moving from point A to B from Old Gotham City doesn’t feel fun. The more you play the less fun it gets.
-It was a bit disappointed to see that most locations were the same that we have already visited in Arkham City. I understand that this part of the prequel), but this does not justify the repetition of same locations.
-Batman has tons of gadgets and a lot of them doesn’t make any sense in this game and really has no purpose to the plot. Often times you’ll be using them to just find and unlock hidden collectibles.
-Lacks attention to detail and polish compared to other Batman games developed by Rocksteady.
-Most enemy encounters felt very repetitive and boring.
-Despite several patches there are still few bugs and glitches here and there. At one point I had to restart the whole game from the beginning as I got stuck in an endless freefall bug that prevented me from progressing the game. Worse it even corrupted and broke my save files.
-WB Games decided to shut down multiplayer mode in late 2016 on PC however it still works on consoles. It’s impossible to get 100% Steam achievements.

[h1]Should You Buy Batman Arkham Origins??[/h1]
If you’ve read so far absolutely give this game a try. Arkham Origins doesn't offer anything new compared to its predecessors, but it's very enjoyable nonetheless. Concerning the story itself, it is a good companion to Asylum and City. As for just about everything else, it did not reach the high standard set by its predecessors. It is still worth your time. Playing Arkham Games in release order is highly recommended. Get it on a sale and don't forget to pick Cold cold Heart expansion; an excellent addition with new storyline.

[h1]My Rating; 8/10 – A Worthy Successor[/h1]

A great Batman game. The story features themes of fear, reluctance and solitude as it delves into Bruce Wayne's reasoning for becoming Batman. A brilliant plot which details many of Batman's first encounters with his rogues gallery. Gotham is very fun to traverse with a very original Christmas themed musical score. Combat can be quite brutal. I'd highly recommend this game.

Take another deep dive as Bruce Wayne in Batman suit in thrilling action twisted rollercoaster. This time story takes before major events in Arkham history. Learn who are your new never seen before enemies.
Combat feels more refreshing and redefined as it should be. Controlls are more tight and responsive to hit mechanics. Love new takedowns and gadgets. Most amazing stuff was Power shock gloves whichs is abizmal overpowered. You can break a wall with them. With new gadgets there was new detective mini game wich is super cool. You examinating crime scene with you detective vision and analysing what happend in that place. Really really well done. You feel like detective in Batman role. This is by far the best done system in all four arkham games.
Story takes new roads while progressing to the end it felt to me more interesting. New enemies and bosses made it more fun to find out whats behind the black mask. This game takes yet another step to reshape boss battles. They are more interesting and innovative. Who can forget best fights against Deathstroke, Copperhead, Firefly and Mr.Freeze. The whole action takes in snowy winter night town. Liked the location so much cause it speaked to me.
Last words will be from me: unpopular take but I personally think this game is the best in Arkham series. I hope these developers will have another shot at making another Batman game in the future. 9/10

Lots of glitches. After the fight was over in the gas chamber, the Villain wearing armor still got up and was able to hit me, but I couldn't hit him back. Then Killer Croc disappeared off the roof along with the sound in the game, but his invisible attacks were still registering. Can't believe after all this time the bugs were never fixed.

The game is super buggy, that's why I couldn't even finish the game. Every time I played it, I came across a bug, which some of them were frustrating and some of them were funny. But the latest bug I came across was a fatal one, in which I died right when a scene came across, now when I continue story the screen is pure black and I can't even close the game I have to restart the computer. Now I can't process through the game. There might be a fix, but after seeing so many bugs I have decided to uninstall the game and not finish it. I loved the Arkham games before this and this game was very disappointing for me.

[h1]Bat To The Future[/h1]
Too Long; Didn't Read: Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel to Arkham Asylum, developed not by Rocksteady Studios, but by WB Games Montreal, and it really shows.
WB has taken the enjoyable core of Arkham City, but has not added much to the experience. And what they have added or changed, is either unnecessary or worse than what we had before.
Combined with an awful lot of lore inconsistencies, poor writing and too much hand-holding, you have a Batman game that feels more like a fan mod than an official product.
Batman: Arkham Origins is only worth buying if you like the combat and stealth sections of previous games, as the lazy plot and presentation will leave fans of the story disappointed.

[h1]The Gameplay[/h1]
Arkham Origins combat and stealth sections are ripped straight from Arkham City. The combat is still enjoyable, getting combos and flying around the arena like an extremely violent ballerina is fun, but Origins has changed the formula for the worse.

The choice of upgrading a move or weapon each level has now been turned into a skill tree. This means if you want to unlock a special takedown, increase batarang damage or disarm thugs with the grapnel gun, you’ll first have to dump points into an upgrade you don’t want or don’t need, like improved armour or mine disarm, skills you can live without.

This small change really ruins the experience, as levelling up goes from an exciting chance to use a new brutal move in combat, to groaning as you put another point into ballistic weave as you try to reach the moves you want.

The two new enemies added to the combat don’t really change much either. The martial artist requires two right clicks to counter, as opposed to one. And the brutes, which are similar to the Bramovici Twins from Arkham City, all require a simple stun before you can beat them down.

The major threat of the game, the 8 assassins hired to kill Batman are almost all boss fights. These boss fights can be intense, with stellar music to add to the excitement, and movie-like camera angles. But these play out more like quick time events, with every few seconds you losing control of Batman and just waiting for when you’re asked to counter an attack.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2218964367

Stealth is largely unchanged, with the exception of the Bat Claw, a sort-of replacement for the zip-line launcher. Its major difference is that it can perform inverted takedowns on unsuspecting enemies, without you needing to be at the gargoyle above them. This removes the thrill of the inverted takedown in my opinion, especially since it has unlimited uses and has no risks involved.

Exploring Gotham is also a bore. The streets are lifeless with only random criminals to bully. Buildings all look the same and despite having a large section of Gotham to explore, only specific locations, usually ones tied in with the story, are used.

The batwing is used for fast travel, but the Riddler has taken down the communication towers, stopping it from flying to key areas. I would feel inspired to unlock them, if it weren’t for the fact that gliding to a location doesn’t take too long, and the fact that you can lose towers over time, requiring another trip to unlock them.

[h1]The Story & Presentation[/h1]
This story takes place early in Batman’s career, before he met the joker, and right before the opening of Arkham Asylum. The problem is that the story does not really seem to have an idea of what it wants to accomplish.

Despite the name, we do not see the opening of Arkham, only the fall of another prison, Blackgate. And the main villain, who is setup as Black Mask, is quickly dropped for fan service introducing a mixture of obscure foes from Batman history, and many we have seen before in other Arkham titles.

This is also yet another Arkham game where the main villain is actually revealed to be a familiar face, a cliché that really gets old at this point. And while the game taking place just before Christmas is an interesting theme for a Batman game, it is a shame it seems to have no purpose or greater meaning.

The writing is pretty poor. Batman is written like an overly aggressive jerk who cannot control his anger, as opposed to the calm and confident hero he is in other titles. The Joker is portrayed as a terrorist only interested in money, Bane is now a super genius with his own personal army, etc. Characters are not the same, and this is not due to it taking place earlier, they try very hard to make references to the previous games, so this just seems to be a misunderstanding of the characters.

The game itself looks decent, but without any flair or character. Every single building looks the exact same, grey brick, with tinted windows, and snowy roof tops. The previous games made the different areas distinct, using red bricks for the steel mill, grey for residential, white for the courthouse, etc.

Arkham Origins is also lazy with characters and lore continuity. Batman’s suit looks like an improved version of his current suit, which is strange since this predates his Arkham Asylum costume. His gadgets are all their improved versions, with the hack tool using holograms, an upgrade only introduced in Arkham City. His gauntlets also use holograms, a feature not seen till Arkham Knight.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2218962319

And while cutscenes are high quality, the game sometimes gives up on looking sharp. Certain areas like the sewers, start to break down and become blurry, even on maximum graphics.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2218962728

[h1]Graphics & Soundtrack[/h1]
Graphically the game does not look to bad, but is a little dated even for 2013. The characters and world don’t look to bad, but as previously mentioned all lack personality, charm, or even a dash of colour.

The soundtrack however is brilliant, the intro music is very good at psyching up the player, and the many boss themes really hammer home the excitement. Even gliding around Gotham is great, the music really adds to the atmosphere, especially thanks to the Christmas bells ringing in the background.

[h1]Performance & Bugs[/h1]
The game performs rather well, with very few frame drops. But bugs are rather plentiful, from the occasional crash, to enemies periodically clipping through walls to escape a beatdown. Indoor puzzles such as the Police Headquarters or the pumping station in the sewers, also break and require multipole reloads.

[h1]Final Score & Comments[/h1]
I would give Batman: Arkham Origins a 4/10. The only enjoyable parts are the combat and stealth sections taken from far better, previous games. All new additions both to the story and gameplay either annoy or ruin the experience. Gotham City has never looked so bland, and despite an amazing soundtrack, the boss battles feel more like interactable cutscenes more than fights.
This game feels more like an attempt to make some money off the Arkham brand, as opposed to its own self-contained adventure in the Batman Story.

The black sheep of the Arkham series, it deserves more attention than it gets. WB Montreal did a wonderful job capturing the feel of Asylum and City and giving it their own spin. Gameplay is similar to it's predecessors, but it continues the trend of exciting and memorable boss fights.

favorite quote in the Batman Arkham Origins:

Alfred Pennyworth : Master Bruce. Stop. Master Bruce. BRUCE!

Bruce Wayne : What are you...

Alfred Pennyworth : I will not in good conscience allow you to go. You are outmatched by these assassins and...

Bruce Wayne : I'm what?

Alfred Pennyworth : ...you're not some hardened vigilante. You're a young man with a trust fund and too much anger. You are in over your head and I don't want this to be your end.

Bruce Wayne : Alfred, who do you see when you look at me? The boy whose shoes you used to tie every morning, the teenager you drove to his first date? While you are here every night, I am out there... the ONLY THING between the innocent and the predatory...

Alfred Pennyworth : You may be, but...

Bruce Wayne : No, not 'may be'. I am. When the mugger or the thief stop to think twice, that is fear. That is what I am. That is why they hired assassins - because I am the reason the criminals breathe easier when the sun rises. So no, Alfred, I am NOT in over my head. Tonight will not be my end. But it will be theirs.

Another of the best versions of Batman, each of which has reasons to be superior. The superiority of this game in my opinion is more boss fights and a bit of a mystery story.
Batman games do not have much definition to say and many are familiar with this style of game, so I will only explain the story of the game to know what this version is like.

Before you read, let me warn you that there is a danger of spoilers and I have spoiled some parts, but there may be more !!!!

In this version, Batman is older than the previous versions and our main enemy is basically a black mask and not a joker. The beginning of the game in a main mission, the Dead Stroke character that many of you know will attack you and defeat this boss The fight is very hard and it is one of the best boss fights in this version. [spoiler] There is a joker, but in the role of a black mask, which I will explain below. ((Another feature that this game has is the ability to travel fast to the bat cave.)) Batman in a mission that is a little close to the end of the game is faced with a black mask, but we encounter a strange scene. (Of course, I do not remember exactly) and the Joker wears his clothes and calls himself a black mask.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1922451878
In this version, Batman, like the decisions you saw everywhere, wants to kill the Joker and get rid of him. When he attacks the building where the Joker is, the Joker gathers Batman's enemy characters and plots to destroy Batman. In these characters, the bane is the main character of boss fight, and [spoiler] when we get involved with the Joker, we throw him out of the window and they talk in the air, and Batman decided to kill the Joker, but he changed his mind and handed him over to the police.

Biggest surprise in gaming, 2020, for me: Batman Arkham Origins. I had soooo much fun playing through this time.
On PS3 this game was disappointing, but I liked it....but it was disappointing.
I watched MiKeYRog (check him on YouTube) play some and decided to give it a go.
On PC, maxed out with the DirectX options on, this game is brilliant, and I've decided that's what hurt the Ps3 version for me. The graphics have aged very well, especially if you like playing with the darkness kind of low. Either way, the bland empty feeling of the PS3 version is replaced with a hostile winter night where it would make no sense to see people out and about anyways.
Without the distraction of low set graphics, the story and pacing shine, and the boss battles are challenging and satisfying. I play on the hardest difficulty. It's the only way to go. It's worth the sale price just to play to and meet the Deathstroke fight--which might be my favorite boss fight ever.
Can't believe what these devs did with so little time--look into it.
Overall this game is an underrated masterpiece that has aged very well and is the best of the Arkham Games, IMO.
It's the first game I've played, in a long time, where I just enjoyed playing through the story.
Play with the graphics maxed. play with the brightness low. don't sweat grinding for skins, bc the main kit is dope.

This game has insane amount of bugs but it's pretty good while considering them. The combat is super chill with shock gloves and dlc cold heart is a lot of fun too.
After finishing the game there is still a lot of stuff to do, however collecting enigma stuff is annoying as in any other game.

So I got this game on a recent sale because it was $4.99. That's the only reason I bought this. Luckily, it was worth 5 dollars. It's just a muddier, and more sad version of Arkham City, with less life, and less vibrancy. It's insane how dead the city looks. The story also falls out halfway through the game, and for the love of god, the Killer Croc fight is bugged. I mean BUGGED. Every single time I triggered his fight, my screen would either black out, or Croc would begin to flash on my screen. Every time this happened, the audio cut out, so this is all happening in silence. One time, after I began a NG+ run, I triggered the Croc fight, my screen blacked out, and the game straight up crashed. And this has been a problem for a while according to forums I've checked looking for a way to fix the boss fight. The game was definitely an OK $5 purchase. No way in Hell this game is worth $20.

To be able to play this game, you need to delete a configuration file to prevent it from crashing. This file will be recreated by the game, this time without the problem that crashes it when you start a new game. This file is located at C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonBatman Arkham OriginsSinglePlayerBMGameConfig and it's called BmEngine.ini

I also recommend making the changes suggested in the PC Gaming Wiki website for this game, as it allows changing FOV and removing intro videos so you get quickly to the start menu.

Now, talking about the game itself, it's actually a lot better than I expected. Sure, it's not as good as the other entries, but the story is interesting enough, the gameplay is the one we've expected to see in Batman games with some improvements, and the bosses are the best!

Some questionable choises where made. But its a solid title.

[h1] the best of the arkham series [/h1]

in my own opinion...

This is (believe it or not) my absolute favorite of the Arkham games. Somehow the lack of a true open world and limited scope brings more attention to the weaknesses of the other games that is usually a combination of too many things done well but not one thing done truly perfect. To me this has always been the standout Arkham game in terms of fighting system, pure style (the costume choices are brilliant), and the toned down silliness of the other three games. I may be alone in this but I suggest a proper and full playthrough of Origins before throwing shade.

The black sheep of the franchise. I think this deserved a little bit more attention but It also feels inferior to arkham city in some ways. But the story is the best of all 4. Combat feels a little janky at times, and there are bugs you will encounter. There are new stuff in terms of gameplay and I think It has its own feeling and style. Also the best christmas game ever

Batman: Arkham Origins get a bad rep in my opinion. It's a decent game in its own right. As long as you don't expect a Rocksteady game and play Origins (mostly) for the boss fights, you're good to go.

The game undoubtedly has a lot of weaknesses. The premise is interesting (one night to kill the Bat) but the story is like molded Swiss cheese with too many (plot)holes. The fights feel off and are not as fluid as in previous Arkham games. (In my head, I excused it as Batman being inexperienced in combat.) Then there's the map which is small and boring to move around in. It gets exhausting dealing with endless armed thugs on every rooftop. (Tip: For those playing 'I am the Night' mode, do not underestimate the snipers, especially in the Diamond District. Just restart, don't risk it!)

All of these flaws are forgivable. What isn't acceptable is that you can no longer play Origins multiplayer. Warner Brothers shut down the servers in 2016. There are about 6 MP achievements that you can no longer get which means you cannot 100% the game. This is a shame because Origins MP was pretty fun. I cannot recommend buying Origins except on sale for this reason.

All things considered, I still think Origins is worth playing for the boss fights. Going toe to toe with Deathstroke, countering Shiva blow for blow, dodging Bane's charges in the nick of time, fighting Monster Bane in a predator encounter. Every boss fight was worth the price. I'd love to see the Arkham games remastered someday like the Halo Master Chief collection. If that happens, I hope Rocksteady makes a playlist called 'Origins Boss Fights'.

Final thoughts: While the main campaign is meh, the DLC Cold, Cold Heart steals the show in terms of story. It is a Xmas must play DLC for Arkham fans. Also, Origins is the not the 'worst Arkham game'. That honor goes to Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate! Yes it counts as an Arkham game! If it doesn't, well , what makes for an Arkham game anyway?

Rating: 7/10 [C: Superior Vigilante]

Arkham Origins is worth playing, while I would not consider it as good as Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, It still brings a new story and more of the great Arkham gameplay we know and love. ... But it's a fine addition to the Arkham video game series if you ask me and definitely worth a play through for the story alone.

Batman: Arkham Origins is the third title in the Arkham franchise. Much like Arkham City before it, Arkham Origins continued to iterate on the gameplay established by the two prior titles and as a result is fundamentally solid even if it didn't take too many risks to evolve that core experience. I appreciate the selection of antagonists this time round, though it is disappointing that the Joker was yet again chosen to be the central villain, the fake-out felt unnecessary and a forced way to make the story about Joker for the third time in a row which sucks, especially as a fan of Black Mask who has plenty of potential himself but was instead relegated to a side objective. Despite that, the story is still better than Asylum by a long shot, and not far behind City. Riddler's inclusion this time round feels more tangible, and while his content is still padding, it's not remotely as offensive an implementation as it was in Asylum or City (barring of course actually being able to take him down yourself in that title). Despite overall playing it safe, I did enjoy Origins pretty equally to City, it's just a shame that I never got the opportunity to try the multiplayer.

This is an underrated game. Killer Croc is one of my favorite bosses in the entire Arkham series. I've never seen a boss teleport to another dimension then shift back and forth into our dimension and other said dimension so fast that he looks like he stutters. It even cuts the audio so you can't hear him coming for you. 10/10 experience. Wish all the bosses were like that!

(Finished all Arkham games except Knight) Origins has only two things going for it and those are the set piece-boss fights and the cut scenes; the latter of which seems to have been a result of being handled by a movie studio. But, it is also because of the movie studio overseeing it, the gameplay is nowhere near as fluid as any of the other Arkham games. I have sweared into my monitor mores times being unable to make the ground takedown to work 8 out of 10 times because the game simply doesn't register it than I have while fighting the Juzou The Drunkard in Sekiro. And the graphics are a dead giveaway of an unpolished and hastened cash grab for the holiday season. The story itself [spoiler] had a lot of promise but sadly it reverted back to being all about the Joker [/spoiler]. The one unique thing about this game was the use of Detective Vision to actually solve a crime scene and reconstruct the event for further clues. But, as far as praises go that's about it.

Bottomline: Finshed the main story and the DLC just for the bucketlist.

Of all the Batman: Arkham games, I was most curious about revisiting Origins as I originally had rather poor experience with the game due to its numerous bugs on release, yet despite that remembered enjoying the game nonetheless. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the title was clearly designed to be a filler entry in the series to bring WB more cash before Arkham Knight can be released. And it has since been often ignored in the overall Batman: Arkham re-releases structure (along with the Arkham Origins Blackgate sidescrolling spin-off which wasn’t good). To the point where the upcoming Gotham Knights title from the same studio, despite clearly looking like a continuation of the side character stories from Batman: Arkham series, is marketed as a completely standalone title.

And it’s all a shame because Arkham Origins is almost a very good game. And I wish I could like it more than I do.

Just like the previous Arkham City, Arkham Origins is an open world stealth action adventure with beat ’em up style combat influenced by earlier Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia titles. You play as Batman in the mostly same locations as with Arkham City, except you get two additional districts to explore and since the events of the game are happening about a decade prior to Arkham Asylum, the parts of Gotham that you get to explore look more or less “normal”. During one particularly snowy night a sudden wave of crimes happens, including a prison breakout and an arrival of several famous assassins all competing to kill Batman first.

This leads to a game where you almost get to be the “normal” day-to-day Batman, the detective vigilante. A dude in a suit who solves crimes, busts criminals and sends anonymous tips to the police not for praise but for his own sense of justice. It’s not like the plot doesn’t get bigger, but unlike the main entries made by Rocksteady Studios, there’s no sense of endtimes or the extremely stylized gothic tone to the world or events. It can be a downside, especially given how cool the style of the other games is, but this “normality” is something that I really enjoy about Origins. This is the first entry in the series, where the detective part of the game is taken seriously, and, although mostly in optional scenes, you do get to solve simpler crimes and apprehend “normal” criminals.

The more “normal” take on villains, that gets less normal as the game progresses, is also charming, if flawed. Penguin is just a short dude who sells weapons. Riddler is a hacker planning to release incriminating data on several public figures. Black Mask is a mafioso with an absurd amount of money and power. Even the Killer Croc is somewhat less monstrous than in other entries. It almost clicks. Almost, if not for the fact that the developers didn’t really know how to make it all work in the time they had to develop the game. So Riddler still hides stuff everywhere, but it’s not riddles this time around, but chunks of data. Just because he’s your collectible villain like in other games and his newer more interesting idea of disabling data relays to shut down the main server couldn’t be as much of a filler. And every villain you fight as a boss has some sort of gimmick, even though none of them actually feel fun. And the whole idea of slowly switching the more normal Batman world into the more stylized one you know from the other games doesn’t really happen, even though it feels as if it’s meant to at a certain point. But it never feels like it.

And that’s really the big problem with the game, or it’s wonderful Cold, Cold Heart DLC – it never feels like it really knows how to be what it wants to be and the delivery is often flawed. The technical issues with the game, for example, still persist. Events might not trigger correctly, fights might not end the way they’re supposed to, you can easily clip out of bounds in many places, the camera can go absolutely nuts during or post combat. The sound in the numerous pre-rendered cutscenes can glitch out to the point where the intro logos are distorted. Though, ironically, they do work just fine in the Online section of the game, because – oh yeah, WB wanted to cash in with the multiplayer too. And it was, surprising nobody, closed just a couple of years after game release. And if you launch it on PC, the only way to shut it down seems to be to Alt+F4, because otherwise you’re stuck in a loop before the game lets you into the main menu.

Oh and the way the upgrades system was redesigned is just horrible. It’s completely linear, instead of being more open like in the previous entries, locking you into upgrades you don’t really need before you can get something you actually wish to use. And even more horribly locking the “challenge” progression (that unlocks upgrades as well) into a linear structure as well. One that doesn’t count that you did something until you’re at the step that’s counting you doing something, so those 15 times you’ve done the required thing before don’t count. It’s so silly, in fact, that the stealth challenge tree is basically impossible to get if you make any mistake, as it often requires you to do very specific things that require the level to have very specific spots. In one case, it requires you to go through a stealth encounter doing 4 things, which is only possible in about 3 or 4 encounters during the whole story, side-content included – missed your chance at the start, now wait until the end of the game.

But I have to say that the PC version still looks great. Upon release it used a lot of fresh visual features that ran poorly on hardware available at the time, but today, at least if you have a more modern nVidia GPU, you can enjoy lots of really nice features and visuals with very little trouble. The soundtrack as well to me felt like a more interesting and memorable ambient in comparison with the rather uninteresting Arkham City and the “christmas-y” arrangements of Batman: Arkham tunes sound really nice.

I really really wish I could easily recommend Batman: Arkham Origins, as I personally enjoy it more than Arkham City. But that enjoyment has to fight through lots and lots of “I like it despite…”. Because the storytelling here is worse, the technical issues are still here, the upgrade system is worse, the menus are less comfortable to navigate through, the combat is often even more annoying than in City because of several new enemy types, the bosses are more often than not simply unfun… I like what it was going for more than what City was going for. I like how it’s actually trying to be open world, almost completely discarding the attempts to merge the Asylum and openness of the map that City often struggles with. I like how it’s more about Batman doing his thing with more “normal” criminals. But many people might not find these reasons good enough to go through all of the downsides. Maybe you will, but I still find it hard to wholeheartedly recommend this entry.

I originally bought and played all the Batman Arkham games on Playstation, having platinumed each of them except for this one, and in my opinion, even if it is not perfect, it's still great and holds really well with Rocksteady's games.

My only concern with the game is that it brings very little more to the gameplay compared to what Arkham City brought to Arkham Asylum. Otherwise, it's pretty much the same great gameplay as City, with a few twists here and there. As such, it's still a blast and absolutely great.

I know a lot of people didn't like the fact that [spoiler] the Joker is once again the main villain of the game[/spoiler], but even then I think the story is really fantastic. It does a great job of showing how the special dynamic between him and Batman was created, in a series of superb cutscenes.

Overall, I think that if you liked the previous games, you like this one too. and I thinks that it's absolutely worth your time.

Can anyone tell me why some people think this one is bad? It's not even close. Okay it's definitely not the best Arkham game but, by no means is it bad. I love the story here even though there is different voice actors they do a really great job here. Story is still engaging and fun to play through. Gameplay is basically just the same as Arkham city so no complaints there either. Just a solid entry into the series.

3/5 solid Arkham game too much hate for Origins.

**Played originally on console**

This game is an underrated entry into the Arkhamverse. A prequel to Rocksteady's trilogy, this game has some of the best character work of any of them and that alone is reason to play it. The Cold, Cold Heart DLC is also very worth a play as it introduces the Arkhamverse Freeze who is a major character in the trilogy. Don't sleep on this one.

The black sheep of the series that some seem to forget is still a sheep. A damn good one at that.
