Edge- Preview: Batman: Arkham Origins – Warner Bros Montreal’s excellent Rocksteady impression

Edge:One of Rocksteady’s less celebrated achievements, alongside making The Dark Knight a menacing yet thrillingly vulnerable videogame protagonist, is that it fashioned a pair of games that make for surprisingly good companion pieces. Arkham Asylum’s crumbling, narrow corridors perfectly suit a tightly focused game about Batman the stealthy predator. Arkham City lacks that potency but instead offers the opportunity to be Batman the Gothic hero, swooping over a city lavishly packed with incidental detail and DC lore. Rather than round out the trilogy with a third, final take on the Caped Crusader, though, Warner Bros Montreal seems to have made Arkham City 2. (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

By far one of my favorite developers now.

Prime example of a licence put to great use .
