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.

For bat-lovers, the Dark Knight's latest escapade swoops from the shadows with welcome familiarity, bringing with it an engaging, open world vision of Gotham City that holds promise for the future. Unfortunately, everything else that Batman: Arkham Origins does well has been done before, and with a better plot than what's on offer here. If you're itching to suit up and fight some crime for the first time, then it's probably best to zipline straight to the game's superior predecessors.
