Arkham Origins Review

By SUPERDEKU - Batman: Arkham Origins: The Review.

Batman: Arkham Origins is the third installment in the Batman: Arkham series and is the first game in the Arkham series timeline. The game wasn't made by the previous developers for Arkham City and Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady Studios. It was instead developed by Warner Brothers Games.

The box art for the game on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

Arkham Origins follows Batman (Bruce Wayne) a few years before the Arkham Asylum incident. You play as  a slightly inexperienced Batman, and younger, too. Bruce Wayne has gone under the guise of Batman for at least two years prior to Arkham Origins. He just became widely popular after and during the events of Arkham Origins.

The main gist of the game, is that, Roman Sionis, or Black Mask, has hired eight assassins to kill Batman. The bounty on Batman's head is 50 million dollars. With stakes this high, of course, not only will the hired guns try to get in on the cash, but the Gotham City Police Department will also try to get to Batman. There's a whole lot more, but that'd spoil so much can of it, silly!


Black Mask (Real name: Roman Sionis)


The game serves as an amazing entryway to the Arkham series, filled with challenges and stealth scenes to keep you on the edge. Not only that, but you'll find yourself replaying these stealth scenes to find new ways of taking down your enemies. Whether it be blowing a wooden wall in their face, hanging them from a gargoyle, or straight up smashing them through a glass ceiling, the action and stealth elements in this game never disappoint!

The free-flow combat system's controls are so basic, yet so complicated to master hitting with such precision timing. It's always so satisfying to knock an opponent out with CQC, especially with the gunshot-like sound that plays after they're knocked out. 

The story is amazingly balanced and beautifully crafted, made to bring you ups and downs in the story and not know what's coming next. You'll be The Batman, as the ads for the Arkham games say. Being The Batman feels fucking amazing.


SuperDeku is massively obsessed with stealth games as of now. And damn, is it hard to come by those. Finding a good series is truly a gem for him. This is none of those gems. He is also waiting for Ludwig to fulfill his request to write about his bondage fetish.


Ludwig DID fulfill that request, right here.
Is "The Batman" related to "The Donald"? Just curious.

  1. I've heard mixed things about Arkham Origins, but I'm going to give it a chance... especially since I got Arkham Knight on PC so I'm still waiting for it to be fixed.

    1. It was a spectacular game! Especially if it was your first game in the Arkham series! Though, if you're one for replayability, I wouldn't recommend replaying it, I honestly don't like replaying it as much as Arkham City.

      Knight was great, too. I'll write a review for it here, as well.

    3. Super late response: it will be my third Arkham game, and I'm not much for replaying games.
