Apparently they also felt the same way about keeping the core gameplay intact, as Batman: Arkham Origins is, storyline aside, virtually the same game as its predecessor. For the most part, that’s a good thing since Arkham City was such a brilliant game, but those looking for an evolution to the series might be left feeling a bit disappointed. It’s more than a bit reminiscent of annual sports game releases, where you’ll get the tiniest bit of improvements year after year (if any at all in some cases). In my particular case, since I love sports games and am used to the changelog presented every year, the lack of anything major as far changes go isn’t too crippling. For others that need an evolution every outing? You’ll probably be seething.
