But even there, we’re talking about hunting Riddler collectibles and fighting bosses in the same city. This is essentially the same game as Arkham City, albeit with new faces and a fresh coat of paint. So it figures that just like Arkham City before it, Arkham Origins is also brilliant, even if it has a whiff of déjà vu about it. Existing fans will relish the chance to explore Gotham and drink in the detail while going toe-to-toe with some marque villains plucked from DC Comics’ rich history. It’s just a shame that while Warner Bros Montreal proved it was a student capable of copying Rocksteady’s formula, it didn’t have the confidence to add any real ambition of its own.
