A Dark Victory | Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Review
New Gamer Nation
3 November 2013
Conclusion: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is a welcome addition to the Arkham franchise. While it’s flawed in many ways, its fun exploration and puzzles outshine the lackluster visuals and poor combat.
Conclusion: Since portable versions and spin-offs of console games usually come up short, we went into Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate with low expectations and discovered a quality experience that favors brains just as much as brawn.
Pros: There's plenty to like about this game, starting with its visuals. Armature Studios did a great job capturing the dark side of Gotham, with dingy prison cells and ransacked offices. Of particular interest is the way the camera shifts perspective, as Batman moves between the foreground and backgro...
Cons: Players should expect some backtracking. Not only does this limit the amount of action in the game, but this is where the drab-looking environments will begin to disappoint, as gamers stare at the same locations for an excessive amount of time, without a single enemy to engage. There's also a con...
Conclusion: Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate is a good extension of the Arkham franchise to handhelds, but it lacks the specialness or inspiration that would make it stand out as a great Metroidvania-style game - or a great Batman game, for that matter.
Summary: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is a game that is brimming with great ideas that are, sadly, poorly executed. As a detective and crime fighter, it makes sense to have Batman star in a game that insists on exploration and backtracking.
Conclusion: Despite some nice cutscene work, this Batman occasionally feels closer to Frank Miller’s abusive arsehole Batman than the conflicted Dark Knight he’s most commonly depicted as these days, which would be fine if the game didn’t lack nuance in its portrayal of the character.
Conclusion: "Blackgate" consegue transferir o ótimo sistema de combate de "Batman: Arkham" para os portáteis PS Vita e 3DS, mesmo com a movimentação lateral imposta pelo jogo. Também é uma boa adaptação do universo do Homem-Morcego para o gênero "Metroidvania".
Pros: Pontos Positivos, Boa adaptação, Exploração "Metroidvania"
Cons: Pontos Negativos, Pausado demais, Chefões pouco inspirados
Excerpt: Rocksteady Studios ha sabido dar en la tecla correcta. Ha removido la industria con su saga ‘Batman: Arkham’ , dejándole casi todo hecho a Warner Bros. Games Montreal con el reciente ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ .
Conclusion: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate zählt nicht unbedingt zu den Titeln, die ihr auf jeden Fall gespielt haben solltet. Die Fledermaus macht in ihrem Einstand auf dem Nintendo 3DS durchaus eine solide Figur, hätte aber an allen Ecken und Kanten noch ein klein wenig mehr Feinschliff und mehr Tiefe...
