Batman Arkham Origins Review

By Evan Narcisse on October 26, 2013, 9:15 AM

Troy Baker's Joker voice is one of the best things about Batman: Arkham Origins. But it’s also a disturbingly reverent impersonation of Mark Hamill's take on the Clown Prince of Crime. Therein lies the conundrum of the latest video game featuring the Dark Knight.

On multiple levels, this game is about finding one's voice. Players inhabit a Bruce Wayne who's been Batman for two years, as he faces a crucible that will test his resolve as never before. The Christmas Eve drama starts with eight assassins out to collect a $50 million bounty on Batman's head—set by crime lords and gets complicated by a first run-in with future arch-foe The Joker.

I've only played 30 min so far, fun game! I just wished they would improved the graphics, now that the new consoles are coming out maybe they push the PC again, I'm playing at 1080p with everything maxed out on a GTX570, it's fairly old card and handles this game without a problem, great card

This game is no Arkham City or Asylum, but the combat makes it fun. I can't wait to unlock the challenges.

I'm loving the single player and multiplayer mechanics. Neither got boring to me yet after continuous hours of gameplay.
