Batman: Arkham Origins Review - The Digital Fix

Warner Montreal had big boots to fill. After Rocksteady’s handover of the much-loved and critically acclaimed Arkham series, following up with a prequel which kept fans happy after two successful titles was a daunting task. Should they stick with the tried and tested formula, or shake things up radically? It always looked as though the former approach was on the cards, as much had been made of Rocksteady’s handover of assets and development techniques to the newcomers, in order to retain the look and feel of the previous games. Given this developmental head start, though, we were hoping that their close relationship would have yielded more progression in the series; we certainly weren't expecting Batman: Arkham Origins to play it quite so safe. (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 6/10
