Pretty good and fun but don't expect a PS3/360 experience

C. Sulto, Amazon

  • Summary: I gave this as a gift but had a chance to play it a while. I did not expect it to be a copy of the PS3/360 version of the basic game, which it's not, but it is a decent version all on its own. It plays like a typical fighter in a pseudo story mode. For the 3DS, it's tailored well and works as a portable Arkham themed game while killing time. It looks and sounds nice with good value but is not like its full blown counterparts on the big consoles.

Has flaws, but overall pretty good

  • Summary: This game is pretty good and not just for Batman fans. As others have stated, it's kind of like a Castlevania game. The graphics are pretty good, environments look nice and Batman looks good. Some of the other character models don't look so great though. There are a lot of hidden objects to find. It took me about 17 hours to complete, but there were times when I got off track. Most people can probably beat it in 15 hours or less.

Better than its prequel

  • Summary: I was really excited for the release of Batman: Arkham Origins, even though I knew it was going to be made by a different company than the previous games in the series. My excitement waned a little when I heard the game was going to be released in portable consoles too, as the more platforms a game is released on, the less the quality (usually).

Get this game if you liked Shadow Complex or the DS Castlevanias

  • Summary: One of my favorite games on the XBox 360 was Shadow Complex, a "Metroidvania"-type game. The gameplay on this Batman game is very similar, plus it has Batman in it, with some nice touches like the detective mode. If you like these type of games don't hesitate to purchase it, you won't regret it.

Batman + Castlevania = yes

  • Summary: When at first you play this game, you might think it's an action game on rails that doesn't leave much for exploration - but you'd be fortunately wrong. This game plays like Castlevania Mirrors of Fate should have played: that is to say, once you find new equipment that enhances the mechanics of the game, other areas of the game open up for you, which encourages exploration.

Was hoping for more, but not bad...

  • Summary: I've been chomping at the bit to be able to play one of the "Arkham" games. I've "played" them before, but I decided a while back that I was done buying new big screen systems... Right now I'm rocking the old school NES, the Super NES, the Sega Genesis, the N64, the PS2, and the Nintendo Wii. After the Wii I decided I was done with big screen, simply because all of these previous systems have their gems. I love the NES for Ducktales...
