With its erratic camera, boring puzzles, and bland visual design, Blackgate is an unimpressive Metroidvania that uses the Batman universe well, but doesn’t do much to accommodate the Arkham series’ most iconic gameplay innovations work. It’s certainly passable, but you can find many Metroidvania games that fulfill their gaming ambitions much better.

Though it was dubbed the Deluxe Edition, its inclusions of extra costumes, a small graphical upgrade from the Vita version, and an increase in enemy encounters, can't help distinguish Blackgate from its handheld roots. Blackgate is an entertaining title that links well with where the overarching Arkham Origins story was going -- it's just a shame that the titles handheld origins weren't improved upon.

With tighter, arcade-style combat, a more interesting environment, and less time-wasting tedium in the exploration sections, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate could have been an entertaining Metroidvania game. As it is, it's a wholly middling experience. It's not a bad way to spend a few afternoons, but it's almost entirely forgettable. Whether on a handheld or in this new console iteration, the game is easy to skip and difficult to love.
