OK, since I've been playing this for awhile now, I have a few complaints.
-First off, the combat, specifically the AI. Why is it that the AI is able to just magically punch or kick faster than Batman can? I know that this is supposed to be early in his career, but this is ridiculous. Instead, I'm forced to do heavy counter sections a lot of the time and use takedowns on armored guys when possible. Even with the Shock Gauntlets...you can't just just mow everyone in the room down, you have to take your time with it. I just find it incredibly ridiculous that WB amped up the fucking AI in this, even on Normal mode! Even when you are on freeflow and time supposed to slow down, THEY STILL PUNCH FASTER THAN YOU. The fuck is that BS?
-Snipers. Oh my god, don't get me started on them. There are too many in the city now, making it a lot harder to travel from one place to another, even having to use fast travel. Even if you use a smoke pellet on one guy, it's pathetic that he can still follow you, from his line of sight, and still hit you. It is one of the most ridiculous things I've seen in a game. That's pathetic.
-Batman himself in combat. Have they learned their lesson by this point? So even if I'm facing someone, I can't punch them until I'm that close to them? Seriously. You try attacking them and he just inches forward and punches at nothing. It's the same when I'm facing someone and trying to use a cape on them. He just inches forward and swings his cape around, hitting nothing but air. Why aren't developers learning their lessons from the past? Has this game been thoroughly tested?
-The atmosphere in Origins is a bit lacking and this is the same problem I've encountered in both Asylum and City. All we see is criminals and maybe a group or two of innocents, but that's about it. Gotham needs to have more life breathed into it, similar to how the Spiderman games have done in the past.
Am I the only one that has these problems with Origins or are people frustrated by the game due to issues like these?
