Summary: i had high hopes for batman arkham origins. I wanted to love this game as much as i love arkham asylum and arkham city but i cant, i just cant do it. I was worried when i found out that rocksteady wasn't creating arkham origins but since im a fan of the first two(i rated both pretty high a few years earlier) i put faith in montreal studios and WB interactive entertainment to deliver someth ing similar or better than the first two games but I was disappointed with the...
Summary: Then get this game. Fun game if you're into the series and maintains the dark, brooding feel introduced with the new movies and previous two games. If you have to choose, Arkham City is better (especially on the Wii U), but this is a good game nonetheless. Side note: They took online multiplayer out of the Wii U version if that matters to you.
Summary: The Batman is back in Arkham Origins, the game is a good game, and what holds it back from greatness you may ask. 1- The game doesn't use the game pad in any of the unique ways that Arkham City did. 2- The landscape and gameplay feels identical to Batman AC. 3- They called it Origins but Batman has the "Bat" (his jet) and new gadgets that wasn't in Batman AC, And at times he feels more bad&$!, it throws off the game.
Summary: As a long time Batman fan, I am excited that my favorite character has such an amazing video game franchise. Arkham Origins, the latest installment in that franchise is a solid continuation of the title. First off, I've got to say that playing this game on the Wii U takes it to another level. Having previously played Arkham Asylum on the PC, it is really a pain to have to keep on hitting pause and switching back and forth to the map.
Summary: This game may be in my top ten favorite games of all time, it may not have changed the formula as much as city did but there is not as much to change that would be unneeded if you are a fan of batman arkham city i recommend this game. i have played all versions and the wii u version is probably the best because of the lack of the horrible multiplayer. the wii u version is also the cheapest being 10 dollars cheaper than all of the other versions.
Best system for which to buy the game but what could have been...

Summary: After Arkham City: Armored Edition, I had very high hopes for this game. In AC, great use was made of the Wii U game pad. The map was always up, you could select locations, control your weapons, and in they even integrated it into the game such that Batman had a touch pad on his forearm. When you through a remote controlled batarang, you directed it using the pad. This time, the developer seemed to get lazy.
Summary: Fantastic game! It follows the Arkham recipe and improves upon it. It also has a great story that makes it worthwhile to play the game to its conclusion. There're a lot of side quests too. And there're challenge maps. Great game!
