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.
