Batman: Arkham Origins Cold, Cold Heart

Auracore MediaWorks
8 August 2014
  • Summary: A cold and close-quarter return to Gotham
  • Pros: It’s more Batman. Another good origin story for a classic Batman villain.
  • Cons: Gotham this time around seems very congested; tough to get a good glide in Gotham this time around. Silent Predator engagements are very claustrophobic. Mister Freeze fight a let down.

Batman: Arkham Origins – Cold, Cold Heart Review

VideoGamer.com
2 May 2014
  • Excerpt: As news of Batman: Arkham Knight lights up message boards, Twitter feeds and YouTube channels, you’d be forgiven for forgetting entirely about Warner Bros. Montreal’s somewhat tepid effort at breathing more life into the Bruce Wayne mythos.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition

DarkStation
21 April 2014
  • Conclusion: All Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is (aside from a terrible name that feels super stitched together) is a boring game in a great franchise that reminds you how to not translate a game from 3D to 2D.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition

Game Over Online
7 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The original Batman Arkham: Origins was a solid entry in the beloved series, but also the weakest link in the chain so far due to glitches and a samey feel. It launched alongside Blackgate on the Vita – a Metroidvania-style game that marked Batman’s debut in that sub-genre.

When Firefly is the highlight of your Batman game, you have a serious problem

GameCritics.com
12 March 2014
  • Conclusion: If I need to sneak into the police station without drawing attention, why am I fistfighting the entire Gotham Police Department?

  • Cons: Everything involving Bane, including his dialogue.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition

Game Vortex
22 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition is a mouthful for a reason. The is the console version of the portable version of the console version of the sequel to the sequel of a Batman game. That probably calls for a bit more explanation.

Batman: Arkham Origins

Game Vortex
22 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Batman: Arkham Origins takes us back before the beginning of the Arkham series of games, back before the reopening of Arkham, when Gotham's worst of the worst villains were kept in Blackgate Prison, a prison which, in the course of Arkham Origins proves to be less than adequate to that task.

Expert Review

22 December 2013
  • Summary: It's difficult to play through Batman: Arkham Origins without being struck by an overwhelming sense of déjà vu. Not because Warner Bros. Montreal's first crack at the Bat does so little to separate itself from its superior predecessors -- though that's certainly the case -- but because it forms such...

Holy bat-mulligan, Batman!

GameCritics.com
13 December 2013
  • Conclusion: why can’t I pummel Deadshot until he’s unconscious?!?
  • Pros: a strong premise, great story beats, and Deathstroke.
  • Cons: it’s super buggy, and counters/takedowns don’t always work.
