NGB | Batman: Arkham Origins Review

Arkham Origins is a frustrating experience. It aims to be a sequel to Arkham City and a prequel to Arkham Asylum, but ultimately it falls short with both goals. Somewhere inside Origins lies a fantastic game, but it’s buried with several big issues surrounding the gameplay. When a semi-open world series relies so heavily on repeatedly hammering the A button and nauseum to progress, it’s probably time for a reinvention. If this was the first game released in the series, it would easily have scored much higher, but when it’s following two fantastic games, it’s not doing enough new to keep this fan interested. Troy Baker’s Joker and the general story make this game worth a play through, but its advisable to wait until the price drops. (Batman: Arkham Origins, Xbox 360) 7/10
