Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition

True achievements
14 March 2015
  • Conclusion: This was the last game I had left to play from all the Batman Arkham games made for the 360 and it was a big letdown, an unnecessary and no fun conclusion to a journey that started so good with Arkham Asylum. It's hard to understand how they could release it like that.

Batman: Arkham Origins -- Cold, Cold Heart

IGN
25 April 2014
  • Conclusion: More Batman is always good, and freeze rays change up brawls in an interesting way, but I’m disappointed that Cold, Cold Heart doesn’t do anything new with Mr. Freeze’s story or boss battle.
  • Pros: More Batman, Freeze-ray thugs, Predator fights
  • Cons: Unoriginal story, Thermal Gauntlets

24 April 2014
  • Summary: It wasn't the brawling or the stealth or the grappling and gliding around environments that held Batman: Arkham Origins back from being a good entry in the Arkham saga. These aspects are tried and true; they are necessary components of any Arkham game.
  • Pros: Makes good use of Mr. Freeze's origin story, Has a few cool new locations, Good sense of momentum until you near the end
  • Cons: Loses focus near the end, Boss battle is a repeat of one from Arkham City

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition Review (PC)

Softpedia
8 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition is a valiant effort of bringing the handheld game to major platforms. However, problematic gameplay, not so good visuals, and original limitations, like the 2.5D perspective, diminish its value.
  • Pros: +Great new story starring Batman, +Open ended campaign design, +Stellar voice acting
  • Cons: -FreeFlow combat doesn't work in 2.5D, -Confusing map and environments, -Almost mandatory Detective Mode

Batman: Arkham Origins

Game Vortex
6 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Batman: Arkham City is not an act anyone wants to follow. Rocksteady Games' engrossing, shocking tribute to the Dark Knight is one of the finest games ever made, and so is Arkham Asylum , the title that preceded it. With Rocksteady out of the spotlight, it's up to the newly christened Warner Bros.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

Hooked Gamers
21 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Even to those that don't know about it being a port, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is clearly a lesser game than it's bigger brothers. While it does some things well, namely its exploring and parts of its combat, almost everything seems like the “lite” version of what they should be.

Batman: Arkham Origins Review (PC)

Softpedia
13 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Batman: Arkham Origins may tell a new prequel story to Asylum and City, but it doesn't bring that many new features in terms of gameplay or graphics. Sure, the multiplayer is a pretty fun experience but, besides that, there aren't enough new things to really impress players.
  • Pros: +Impressive origins story for Batman, +Lots of interesting twists, +Multiplayer has potential
  • Cons: -Not enough new elements in terms of combat, -Some glitches are still present, -Multiplayer is a bit hard to understand

  • Summary: The third installment of the 'Batman: Arkham' series is upon us, and with the Unreal 3-powered series not ready to make the jump to the Xbox One and PS4, the next best thing is PC version.
