Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart DLC

DarkStation
9 May 2014
  • Conclusion: A classic Batman story in some less then stellar trappings, Cold, Cold Heart is worth your time if you are in the mood for more of the Dark Knight. Depending on your feelings towards Origins ‘s quirks and flat out gameplay failures, this may or may not be an immediate purchase. However, like the main game itself, there is enough here in the way of charm and set pieces to enjoy, even if the overall package leaves you yearning for something more.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition Review – PlayStation 3

Gametactics
8 May 2014
  • Conclusion: It somehow makes mistakes that no game in its storied genre has ever made. It’s somewhat unfair to say this, given how few Metroidvania games there are outside of the legendary series that make up the portmanteau, but it’s plainly a flop. Avoid it.

Batman: Arkham Origins - Cold, Cold Heart DLC Review

PlayStation Universe
25 April 2014
  • Summary: "Cold, Cold Heart" spins a compelling yarn on the origins of Mr. Freeze with impressive detail and dialogue. Just don't expect many changes to the series' combat or a satisfying resolution.
  • Pros: Well-told origin of Mr. Freeze, Great price, Attention to detail
  • Cons: Abrupt ending, EX Suit is mostly for show, Recycled boss fight from Arkham City

Batman: Arkham Origins - Cold, Cold Heart

GameTrailers
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Bruce Wayne has already been challenged with additional content to his latest outing, Arkham Origins, in a prequel episode called Initiation. The latest DLC, Cold Cold Heart, picks up at the end of Origins to tell the tragic tale of Victor Fries, or as the press chooses to call him, Mr. Freeze. The story is a bit too brief for the asking price, but anyone dedicated to the Dark Knight should have fun with the extra missions, outfits, and gadgets.

Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart

Destructoid
24 April 2014
  • Summary: So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise of another "story" addition down the line. When I heard that said story DLC would feature Mr. Freeze however, I couldn't help but at least get marginally excited.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition

The Gamers Temple
16 April 2014
  • Excerpt: In a move everyone saw coming, the previously 3DS/PS Vita exclusive side game to Batman: Arkham Origins, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate, has been given an HD upgrade and moved to the PS3 and Xbox 360. On handhelds, the game was pretty good; a solid side-scrolling Metroid-vania adventure with some decent fights and the usual cast of Bat-villains.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition PS3 review

PlayStation Universe
14 April 2014
  • Summary: Though it was dubbed the Deluxe Edition, its inclusions of extra costumes, a small graphical upgrade from the Vita version, and an increase in enemy encounters, can't help distinguish Blackgate from its handheld roots. Blackgate is an entertaining title that links well with where the overarching Arkham Origins story was going -- it's just a shame that the titles handheld origins weren't improved upon.
  • Pros: Great voice acting., Motion comic cutscenes., Combat still fun.
  • Cons: Various bugs and glitches., Frustrating boss fights., Story drags.

Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation

Destructoid
1 January 2014
  • Summary: I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins . Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was , but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series. Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.
