NowGamer: "Rocksteady's Dax Ginn gives his thoughts on the Batman game Rocksteady didn't make, Batman: Arkham Origins."
if it was a $40 Arkham City expansion then it would be a great game, but it did not deserve a full $60
Solid is exactly the word I would use to describe Arkham Origins. It gets way too much flak than it deserves.
They deserved the flak for telling people that bought their game, that instead of fixing game breaking bugs they'd rather work on DLC...
Since the announcement of Arkham Knight, Origins has gotten a lot of hate, but I still think it was a decent addition to the Arkhamverse, nowhere near as good as the previous two, but still good in it's own right. Arkham Knight is going to be amazing, though.
I personally preferred arkham origins story line, more than I did city...
"They Did A Really Solid Job" meaning "We can do so much better". That's what I hope. Origins is not on par with the previous games. And had a sh1t ton of bugs on PC version.
I liked Origins a lot. The gameplay wasn't as good as the previous two, but the story was amazing.
Hats off to Rocksteady for being civil. Arkham Origins was decent but when put against Rocksteady's previous outings, it is lacking.
Aside from some glitches (which I haven't really encountered many, aside from losing my save game once when I first started playing it) the game is largely the same as Arkham City and Asylum. I never got all the hate this game gets. The gameplay is the same. Same combat system, same controls. There are Riddler challenges. I just don't get it. I thought it was great.
