Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

IGN
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

Batman: Arkham Origins Review

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Conclusion: Tobias Kujawa meint: Grafisch und akustisch überzeugt Blackgate mit stabiler Bildrate, guter (englischer) Sprachausgabe, einem passenden Soundtrack und flüssigen Animationen. Leider ist der Trip durch das Gefängnis aber genauso oft öde wie spannend. Das Spiel schickt Euch sehr oft in fernab gelegene Bereiche, die Navigation dorthin fällt durch die verwirrende Karte schwer.

  • 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.
