During this generation, the superhero that we affectionately call the Caped Crusader has cemented himself as pop culture’s favourite fictional crime fighter, thanks to the release and resulting popularity of two incredible games from Rocksteady that set the bar for genre efforts going forward. Of course, we just recently received a third entry in said Batman: Arkham franchise, entitled Batman: Arkham Origins, though it’s something I cannot comment on personally as I’ve yet to sit down and lurk my way through it as Bruce Wayne’s alter ego. What I can talk about, though, is the third iteration’s complementing handheld title, Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate, which hit store shelves on the same day as its console-based peer. I’ve stealthily scoured through its dingy prison setting, and have emerged with quite a few thoughts regarding what is a cheaper, plus different, take on the beloved formula.
