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 overwhelming sense that you’ve been here and done this before are unavoidable in Batman: Arkham Origins. Despite an excellent story and a ton of content, there’s very little that has changed in the last two years. Batman: Arkham City being such a good game, and Origins being so similar, makes this game good by default — but it does feel formulaic. If it wasn’t for the exceptional story and tie-ins to the previous games, it would feel almost unnecessary.

If you haven’t played a game in the Arkham series yet, you’d be better off starting with the superior Arkham City; diehard fans are sure to get some surface-level enjoyment out of Batman’s latest outing, but disappointment is sure to set in when examined too closely.
