Batman Arkham Origins
Batman Arkham Origins is the third instalment in the spectacularly successful series created by Rocksteady Studios. Critically acclaimed, the series has become the studio’s major achievement. It is an action-adventure game seen from third person’s perspective. And, good news, Arkham Origins is the perfect game to begin your adventure with the series: it is a prequel to the previously published parts.
The plot is inspired by comics such as Batman: Year One and Legends of the Dark Knight. We enter the world of Batman as a beginner superhero. The game takes place during Christmas Eve a few years before the events of Arkham Asylum. Black Mask, one of the most dangerous villains from Arkham, marks Batman as wanted and offers a reward for his death. Thus, poor superhero has to face up to all the enemies wanting him dead, in the meanwhile trying to discover why he is hunted. The scriptwriters made everything they could to explain all the complicated relations between Batman and his enemies which we were able to witness in the previous instalments.
The game does not lack new character, too: we can meet villains like Deathstroke, Shivy and Firefly. Fighting generally looks like it did in Batman: Arkham City. It is worth noticing, though, that the younger and inexperienced Batman is not as skilled as his older self. There are noticeable imperfections in his fighting skills and he has much to learn. We can fiddle with new gadgets, though, like Remote Claw. It is an interesting device, a rope that lets Batman connect two enemies or items in order to bring them together. Previously seen modes like Predator and Challenges are still present together with a new one, The Dark Knight. It mixes challenges directly into the main gameplay, letting the player experience even more fun at the same time. The game lets us explore an area that is much bigger than it used to be, too. With two districts of Gotham to explore, it seems impossible to get bored, and very possible to get lost.
