Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

25 October 2013
  • 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. Without any real surprises, engaging settings, or interesting story, Blackgate feels more like a retread of bullet points than the handheld Batman we truly deserve.
  • Pros: Fun fighting, Metroidvania gameplay
  • Cons: Derivative, Samey environments

Review: Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate

27 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate is essentially a smooth transfer from its console counterparts, bar a few instances such as button latency and simple A.I during the free flow combat. The backtracking and confusing navigating can at time become frustrating but apart from these minor hiccups Armature have bought an admirable entry of the Arkham Series to the portable front.

  • 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. Regardless of how fitting the subject matter may be, as a Metroidvania title, this one tends to fall flat on some of the more crucial elements.

Batman: Arkham Origins Review

25 October 2013
  • 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. This won’t be a big issue for everyone, but the sheer effectiveness of intimidation and torture in this game wore me down.
  • Pros: Stays faithful to the series it is building on., It may be an obvious standby product, but it’s fleshed out and enjoyable., Some great combat scenarios., Plenty of secrets to hunt down., A few neat nods to comic fans.
  • Cons: Even by Batman standards, the game glorifies intimidation and torture a bit heavily., Wasted opportunities with Gotham., Lacks the design consistency of Rocksteady’s work.

  • 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". Porém, o game logo se mostra pouco inspirado em durante os confrontos com os chefes de fase.
  • Pros: Pontos Positivos, Boa adaptação, Exploração "Metroidvania"
  • Cons: Pontos Negativos, Pausado demais, Chefões pouco inspirados

Рецензия на Batman: Arkham Origins — Blackgate

20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Если в Batman: Arkham Asylum был предложен единственный достойный за долгое время формат видеоигр про Бэтмена, в Arkham Origins его окончательно опошлили —  игра получилась неплохой, но вообще без новых идей. На (угасающей) волне успеха приключения Бэтмена также попыталась адаптировать тот же формат на портативных PlayStation Vita и Nintendo 3DS, причем в двух измерениях — результатом чего стал платформер Blackgate.

'Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate': análisis

19 November 2013
  • 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’ . Pero no solamente los sistemas de sobremesa han tenido su ración del Caballero Oscuro, ya que tanto Nintendo 3DS como PS Vita han contado con ‘Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate’ .

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

11 November 2013
  • 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 vertragen können.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Review

4 November 2013
  • Summary: Die Anfänge des Dunklen Ritters lassen sich nicht nur auf den „großen Plattformen“ erleben, sondern auch in dem exklusiven Handheld-Abenteuer mit dem Namenszusatz Blackgate. Darin macht Batman sich auf, das Blackgate-Gefängnis von Gotham City aufzuräumen, denn ein paar seiner skrupellosen Gegenspieler haben es sich darin gemütlich gemacht.
  • Pros: atmosphärisch wie auf den „großen“ Plattformen, stimmige Comic-Sequenzen, sinnvolle Integration des Touchscreens, Free-Flow-Kampfsystem funktioniert gut …
  • Cons: Spielverlauf auf Dauer zu eintönig, keine deutsche Synchronisation, lahme, abgedroschene Geschichte, … doch die Prügeleien stellen keine Herausforderung dar
