Batman games are like pizza: even when they’re not very good, they’re still pretty good. Next to Arkham City, Arkham Origins is a bit of a disappointment in its lack of new ideas and use of win buttons, making it the least interesting of the trilogy. But as excuses to dive back into the excellent free-flowing combat and predator takedowns go, this story isn’t bad.

And that's the biggest problem with Arkham Origins. Remember Batman Begins? Of course you do--it was phenomenal, and you saw it like twelve times. Right at the end of the movie, Batman and Gordon have a rooftop conversation about what this vigilante thing means for the future of Gotham’s criminal element. He uses a word to describe his fear: escalation. Arkham City was big, and in trying to match that size, Arkham Origins strains under the pressure, ending as an extremely fun, flawed journey into an empty Gotham.
