GameCloud: "Being released just two year after Arkham City, it’s surprising just how similar Origins is to it’s predecessor. Sure, it might not bring that much new to the table, but it should be noted that this installment was developed by Warner Brothers and not Rocksteady Studios. Honestly, Origins is still a game that fans of the franchise will happily dig their teeth into. It has the villains, the gadgets, the combat, and the levels of an Arkham game. If you’re looking for innovation, you’re going to be bitterly disappointed. Given more development time, it’s possible this could have been another spectacular achievement, but as it currently stands; it’s simply a very good, albeit predictable experience... Alright, fine, I'll say it. It's the sequel we deserve, but not the one we need right now."
