Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (Nintendo 3DS) Review

Cubed³
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Cubed3 was extremely disappointed with Batman: Arkham Origins , despite the story and presentation being highly impressive. It was with some hesitation then that the 3DS spin-off, Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate was tried out.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate 3DS Review

  • 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...

  • Excerpt: Can familiar gameplay retain its greatness when it loses half a dimension? According to Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, the answer is a caped, pointy-cowled yes. The Dark Knight's action-adventure experience has been grafted onto a 2.5D plane for the 3DS and Vita, keeping the Metroidvania vibes...
  • Pros: Classic Batman combat works well in 2.5D, Satisfying, open-ended exploration, Plenty of collectibles to track down
  • Cons: Some infuriating trial-and-error boss fights, Fewer stealth segments than you're used to, Both versions have unique drawbacks

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.

  • 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

  • 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...

  • 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...
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Mindent összevetve egy jó játékot, de nem többet kaptunk a Blackgate személyében. Sajnos az Armature Studio alkotása messze nem kiváló, hiszen a kisebb hibái mellett nem nyújt kiemelkedő élményt, azonban még így sem bántam meg egy percig sem, hogy hozzákezdtem.
  • Pros: Folytatódó sztoriÉrdekes boss-harcokJópofa detektív módGyűjtögetés
  • Cons: Kopott grafikaHasználhatatlan térképA 2.5D-t bizony szokni kell
