Batman: Arkham Origins Review | Geekenstein

"It’s hard to believe that it has only been four years since Batman: Arkham Asylum. The title that seemingly broke the curse of non-Spider related super-heroics in gaming has cast a shadow over so many games that have come since. Its masterful combination of Nolan’s dark vision of Gotham with the expanded rogues gallery afforded by decades of comics history brought even the most mainstream of Batman’s fans up to speed on everyone from Calendar Man to Victor Zsasz. Its narrow corridors and expansive tool-set created a tight, linear narrative where players nonetheless felt completely in control. Arkham City introduced open world mechanics to the formula that arguably opened up the world too much, taking away from that tightness that made Asylum such a breath of fresh air. Now, with Arkham Origins, new developer WB Montreal has struck a great balance between the levels of Asylum and the open world of City. It doesn’t quite eclipse the original, but Origins is a much more refined sequel than City was, and it’s one that is well worth your time." - Alex Santa Maria of Geekenstein (Batman: Arkham Origins, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 4/5
