Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Lurks In The Shadows Of Its Predecessors [eGamer]

eGamer writes: "It’s been four years since Rocksteady shook the world up and propelled themselves into fame with the glorious Batman: Arkham Asylum. Two years later, they followed it up with Arkham City, which is the game that cemented the studio as world class. After that, we were all left wondering what would come next for the Batman, and as we know that turned out to be a prequel led by newbies Warner bros Montreal. Now, I had concerns with Arkham Origins when it was first announced, because I felt that Arkham Asylum made a massive statement when it forever raised the bar for licensed titles, and Arkham City too made a big statement by proving licensed games could stand up to the best of triple A games. But what is Batman: Arkham Origins saying? That there’s franchise potential here? That the universe has a big story? I don’t want this to be interpreted as me expecting each iteration to be the second coming of JC, but it says something about the pedigree that this series has, and that personally I really did not want it to reach a point where we consider its releases in much the same fashion as we do a new Assassin’s Creed for instance. It’s not there yet, but this is a step in that direction." (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -
