Batman: Arkham Origins
Multiplayer has potential.
A world brimming with side missions, collectables and more.
Lives up to Rocksteady’s games.
Movement, free-flow combat.
Stealth mechanics are as solid as ever.
Story has some great moments and makes good use of characters
No surprises or innovations to liven up the gameplay.
Characters in multiplayer feel frustratingly weak.
Crime Scenes could be developed into something more taxing for the player.
A handful of launch day bugs, yet to be patched.
Harsh and distant checkpoints.
Some glitches are still present.
Multiplayer is a bit hard to understand.

Batman: Arkham Origins might be a prequel to the acclaimed Arkham City, but this is a clear case of sequelitis if ever there was one. It's a perfectly good Batman game, and it makes some smart decisions about plot and focus, but it is repeating rather than advancing that slick Arkham style.70
