Game Review: Batman Arkham Origins (PS3)

The biggest problem with Arkham Origins is that it suffers in in comparison, which is hardly fair, but this is the second sequel and it is just not as good. Where I was excited initially I soon became tired of the problems and annoyed with the Boss fights which alternate between Quick Time Events with little interaction to long drawn out battles that slow you down and are not consistent with other parts of the game.

If this is the first Arkham game you play then you may well be impressed and I would recommend it if you have not played the others. If though you have played Asylum or City, then this will be a disappointing return to what was a great series until now.

PROS: Great Design elements, good combat system, plenty to do and replayability.

CONS: Underwhelming compared to previous games, flight issues, story inconsistency.
