Batman: Arkham Origins Review

James O’Connor at

For all its faults, Arkham Origins lives up to the prestige associated with its name. It’s easy to be negative about it, simply because everything it does well the previous games also pulled off splendidly, but the fact is that if the other Arkham games didn’t exist this would be the best Batman game ever by a mile. Best case scenario, Arkham Origins is a well-meaning squeeze of the cash-cow’s teat designed to tide over fans and keep the franchise visible in the public eye while Rocksteady work on something truly special for the next generation of machines. This is the shady reality of the Triple A games industry, but we’d be damn lucky if every B-studio was turning out work this solid.

It’s a fantastic review, head on over to read it in full.
