  • Summary: Weirdly, the wii U platform does not support the multiplayer component of this game. It can obviously run it if even a PS3 can, but the Arkham Saga seems a little racist towards Nintendo outside of Arkham City Armored Edition (Debatably the best in the series). There's no multiplayer, but the gamepad is integrated quite well without interrupting gameplay (and optional, so you can just use Weirdly, the wii U platform does not support the multiplayer component of this...

Decent Review

  • Summary: Batman Arkham Origins is a fun game and an interesting one. I had tested the difficulty of it, and its harder than the other Arkham games. It is a prequel to the first 2 Main Arkham Games (Asylum and City, and City: Lockdown), and the Original Animated Film "Batman: Assault on Arkham". It is considered the Year two of Batman.

Na na na na na (someone's done this already, haven't they?)

  • Summary: Still making my way through this game, but it's quite obviously an amazing improvement over Arkham City, which was also a damned amazing game. Arkham Origins, of course, offers the origins of a lot of characters, showing us one of Batman's first nights out on the town as the Bat and even giving us a glimpse at the possible beginning for the Joker, at least giving us the introduction of these two iconic characters. But storyline really doesn't matter here, does it?

  • Summary: A mobile tie-in game that shows of an impressive and very fun touch-screen combat system. Even better is that it uses the free-to-play model and doesn't force the use of microtransactions at all. This one every Batman fan should strongly consider for their mobile devices. There's plenty of content to keep you coming back after you've beaten all the main missions.

Good. Far from great.

  • Summary: There are other more in depth reviews so I won't go into a ton of detail. The locking/freezing/glitching was almost unbearable. It happened at the same area of the city every time too. Like it wouldn't load fast enough so it just froze up. I will say though that this was on all platforms from what I've heard and seen (I played wii u and ps3) so it's not just the Wii U version. The game itself just seemed rushed and unfinished.

  • Summary: Batman Arkham Origins has a lot of action, but the action sequences seemed forced, along with the game having little purpose for characters. If you love action, it's for you.

Excellent Story!

  • Summary: The game story is fantastic, like a great movie or book, and the Joker is as great a villain as ever. Plus, it still feels great to be Batman! I agree the game mechanics don't have a significant upgrade or change, the Riddler puzzles are weaker, and there were a few bugs even after being out so long, so the game isn't perfect. But overall, it's a still an awesome experience, well worth playing.

Graphics Are Superior To The PS3 Version Though Gameplay Itself Is The Same.

  • Summary: Like with a few other game titles I felt this would be a good addition to my Wii U game library considering that I also have Batman:Arkham City Armored Edition for the Wii U as well and I have to say while the functionality of the gamepad is negligible the gameplay and graphics as well as frame rate makes it a superior version opposed to the PS3 version.

  • Summary: Just a shallow piece of entertainment that reminds me to not take mobile gaming that seriously. The game is just about go here, punch these dudes, buy new suits, get better at combat with power ups, micro transactions. Rinse and repeat. The combat is a joke. Tap tap tap, slide sometimes, change between attack and defense modes, use your power ups when you can. It is not even Just a shallow piece of entertainment that reminds me to not take mobile gaming that seriously.
