Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate is a mouthful to say, but is a fun game to play. Getting a good ten minutes to play the game down in Seattle, I was able to play through a decent chunk of the tutorial.
Batman AOB is a 2.5D action platformer that takes game play from its console counterpart and gives it a new twist. You still get the same fighting mechanics that Arkham Asylum and City utilize and combat came very natural when I first started playing.
The few negatives I have for this game were minor – how slow Batman walked, and sometimes trying to activate things like crawling into a vent or use the grappling hook you would have to be lined up perfectly. This became frustrating, but I could see this being fixed very easily given the way the game is set up. The graphics look really good and I can’t wait to learn more about this game. Do not count this game out; Armature Studios knows what their doing.
