Review of Batman: Arkham Origins [Kuma Kreations Ent]

Kuma wrote: Every hero has a beginning; either you came from a distant planet or starts off with a dark past. Either way it is your choice on what legacy you want to begin and for Bruce Wayne, it was to be the Dark Knight that Gotham needed. This is the supposed prequel to the other Arkham titles where you take on Gotham as a fresh start Batman against a lot of heavy hitters, but the question that everyone is asking, has Warner Bros Montreal succeeded in this Batman? We shall definitely get into that. (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 2.5/5

Seriously? The game is amazing. The boss fights are incredible, the story is good, gameplay is so diverse and wonderful at the same time, the world is huge, Batman is badass, the graphics are some of the best seen on all platforms and the game scores a 2.5/5?

SMH.

That is not what I was talking about? Where is the origins? Where is prequel, there was nothing new and the boss fights were very timid. Sorry your beloved hero this time around can't get the recognition it deserves.

Everyone is so tied up in the title "Arkham Origins" that they just can't wrap their head around it.

The series never was about Arkham. It was always about Joker. Considering the fact that the 2 previous games have established themselves as Batman: Arkham XY, the devs had no choice but to use the same title in their prequel since, well, it is a game in the same universe.

The whole series is about Batman and Joker's relationship, how they became ying to their yang. Batman meets Joker for the first time in Origins. That's what it's all about, that's where the prequel stems from.

The boss fights are definitely not timid, they're long, hard (that's what she said) and they differ from one another. Heck, there's even some humor and badassery (Electrocutioner battle). Character design is excellent, voice acting is great. Story so far is absolutely brilliant. The design is amazing, the characters look better than both previous Arkham games combined (would you look at that freaking cape!).

Sure, the gameplay is more of the same with a few additions, but it's brilliant and didn't need to be changed! To be honest, I don't think anyone but Rocksteady should change it, so it's a good thing that WB Montreal stuck to the formula, expanding it ever so slightly and wonderfully and creating an immersive, gorgeous to look at and extremely fun to play game.

I just don't know how people can't freaking see it. Going inside the Steel Mill, running around Jezebel plaza, you just can't help that nostalgic feeling coming from Arkham City, seeing how the world changed along with Batman.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm enjoying the hell out of the game. I like it so much I'm holding off on playing it a lot because I don't want to finish it so freaking soon. That's how good it is. It's definitely not as bad as you've made it look. But hey, who am I to judge your opinion...

Utterly ridiculous review. Sure, the game doesn't really do anything new, but it does everything as good as (if not better than, in some respects) Arkham City.

At least an 8.5/10. Probably higher.

Please elaborate on how that it is utterly ridiculous?

If you want someone to give you the same drawn out answer with the score that you want, then don't read reviews because obviously opinions are not for you. I broke it down and I expected an interesting prequel take on the dark knight, not all the games are going to be perfect. Sorry to burst your bat bubble kids!
