Gaming Union: "Rocksteady’s sequel to their 2009 surprise hit, Batman: Arkham Asylum exceeded expectations and was exactly what a sequel ought to be. Arkham City was bigger, better and still retains the essence of what made the first game so enjoyable. The Wii U version of Arkham City was handled by WB Montreal. It added some great gamepad integration but also had some notable performance issues. However, it satisfied the demand enough that while Rocksteady is busy on their rumoured Silver-Age Batman game, WB Montreal has released Batman Arkham Origins – a prequel to the trilogy, and tries to follow up with Rocksteady’s exceptional series. While it doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, WB Montreal have still crafted a decent enough successor to Arkham City."
