    Batman Fan-Service On Demand

    My initial reaction to Arkham Origins, unfortunately, was not a positive one. The controls didn't feel right, everything was moving a little too quickly, and the introduction was not at all what I expected to see from an... Read Full Review

    To innovate or recreate? That is the question.

    What do you do when making a sequel, or in this case a prequel, to a series of games that have made so many great achievements? Do redo everything to have the game be a new and exciting addition, or do change almost noth... Read Full Review

    More like Arkham City 2

    When footage of the game was released, I wasn't impressed. Mainly because it looked pretty much like Arkham City. Then they started releasing cinematic trailers and the quality of that reeled me in. Don't be fooled, beca... Read Full Review

    Everyone Knows it's Fun

    First, the game is not as good as City BUT only because of the bugs. So, the annoying things first: CONSCombat is not as fluid or responsive as it was in CityCamera can be annoying as you fight with it while in combat t... Read Full Review

    This is the "Batman Forever" of the Arkham series
