If you deeply enjoyed the crime fighting antics of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, but you’re a little weary about heading back into the Dark Knight’s universe with Arkham Origins… stop fooling yourself.
Not only has developer Warner Montreal injected the game with an exciting new story, a new world to explore and lots of great new gadgets, it’s more of the crunchy Batman gameplay that you loved so much in the first place so you would do well to stop worrying about it being ‘more of the same’ and let yourself have a good time again.
If, however, you’re still a little sceptical then you can watch an almost 17-minute long gameplay walkthrough hosted by the developers of Batman: Arkham Origins and see how it’s looking for yourself:
