Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Review | Tech Heads

The Batman: Arkham series finds itself in a peculiar situation. It’s a licensed superhero series, and Superman 64 and Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis have taught us to be wary of our caped, underwear-on-the-outside heroes. However, it has also delivered two of the best games this generation, with Arkham City ranking in the top five Metacritic scores of all time for the PlayStation 3. Perhaps that’s what makes Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate so frustrating. It looks like an Arkham game, it sounds like an Arkham game, and it certainly takes a risk using a 2.5D style not unlike that of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow-Mirror of Fate, but the entire experience feels clunky, rushed, and frankly, soulless. (3DS, PS Vita) 6/10
