Batman Arkham Origins does a lot of things well, combat is still fast flowing and fun, voice acting and storytelling is top-notch and many missions and boss fights were hugely entertaining. Unfortunately, many players will likely find a few too many similarities to Arkham City to warrant a purchase right now, with the world and many of the gameplay mechanics near identical to Rocksteady’s 2011 hit. Arkham Origins will certainly please fans of the series, with familiar gameplay and a surprisingly good narrative and mission structure.

The leap from Asylum to City was dramatic, if not entirely successful, but Origins is so similar to City – even repeating some moments verbatim – that it feels more like an elaborate expansion than a proper sequel. It's obvious Warner Bros. wanted another Batman game on the shelves while Rocksteady worked on the next one, which makes the whole thing feel a bit cynical. Yearly sequels can bleed a great concept dry, and the Arkham series deserves better.
