Batman Arkham origins

If you like the Arkham series this game is for you. It's the third installment after Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I discovered it on PS now after I've played Batman: Arkham Asylum. I recommend you play at least one of the two previous games before that one. The combat is very similar to the previous entry in the series and you never get tired of it. It's an open world action-adventure. You're in the vast city of Gotham on Christmas eve and there's trouble. You play as a younger less-refined Batman which is prone to violent behavior. I loved the story but it's short. The online part of the game I couldn't play as it was not available anymore in 2020. The side missions were really fun and searching for Enigma's data packs was something worth doing because of all the different things you had to do to get to them. I recommend this game it's super entertaining!

It was good but not as good as Arkham City. Arkham Origins has a different voice cast and it feels more like a game of its own than a sequel to the others sometimes.

But while it's not the best game in the series its still enjoyable and worth playing if liked to fight supervillains and criminals as Batman. The one thing I think that this game did do better than the other Arkham games was the boss fights, they were actually enjoyable and a bit challenging too.

Warner Bros. Montreal set out to create a Batman game worthy of Rocksteady’s legacy, and managed just that. There’s some great stuff to see here, but it doesn’t really push the franchise off in a new direction. For a new studio’s first attempt in the franchise, I think that’s really what it needed to be, so they can build their own legacy in the future.

While I still believe that Batman: Arkham City is the best game in the franchise, Batman: Arkham Origins is a close second. The culmination of what has been cultivated in the previous games is apparent, and what you get is the cleanest and most accessible Arkham title so far. Even though the game doesn’t really expand much from what is done in Arkham City (although there are a few additions), it still feels fresh and fun while retaining the things that fans love about the series–great combat, an open world, and tons of villains.
