Hello,

We have just pushed a new patch that may address the crash that some users are experiencing at the opening of the game (when Batman first appears and begins to turn around).

If you are able to try the new release, please let us know if it is working for you or not. There is a pinned forum thread titled "Help Track Down Game Crashing/Freezing" that you can add to.

Thanks!

Die Original Arkham Reihe ist zwar berühmt für ihr Kampfsystem, davon merkt man in diesem Spiel jedoch leider nichts. Man kommt meistens nicht über eine 30x Kombo. Die Bosskämpfe sind frustrierend und wenig spaßig, die Karte ist außerdem völlig unübersichtlich. Die comichaften Zwischensequenzen sind allerdings ganz nett. Echte Die-Hard Arkham Fans haben vielleicht an der ein oder anderen Stelle ihren Spaß, ansonsten ist das Spiel eher enttäuschend.

I was gifted a copy of this game by Warner Brothers following the technical issues that plagued Arkham Knight's release. I probably wouldn't have played it otherwise despite loving the Arkham series and even being a fan of the often maligned Arkham Origins. This game was originally designed for handheld consoles like the 3DS and Vita and it shows - what works on those consoles doesn't necessarily work on the PC, where the combat (a mainstay of the series) feels shallow and lacks impact and the graphics - while nice - don't live up to prior games in the series.

The story is reasonable but sadly it lacks in the most important department - the thug banter. The personality and charm that this gave to other games in the series is completely lacking here, thugs barely talk and when they do they don't have much to say. To make matters worse, there is no postgame content - if you don't complete everything before the final Boss you have to start all over again. To make matters even worser, the game cuts off access to particular rewards. This means you need at least a total of three complete playthroughs if you're a completionist, and the game honestly isn't good enough to warrant another go around.

It's not bad, but it's got nothing really going for it beyond the license and the goodwill of the other games in the series. It was fine enough to play, but not anything I'd recommend going out of your way to get to. You'll probably end up more frustrated than anything else, thinking about what could have been.

Anyone seen my Keys to the Batwing?
Sidescroller meets Batman! but how well did the mix go?...
This is the 2nd Game in the Arkham Series storyline. It is noticeably different in terms of gameplay and the playrs perspective when playing. This biggest difference to other games that this has, is definetely the Side-Scrolling Style. It is a 2.5 Dimensional Experience (Wrap your head around that!)
The main reasons for the change are:
-Armature Studios (Known for Metroid) created the bulk of content here.
-WB Games wanted to include Ps Vita Users and even 3DS users in the Arkham series, since Batman was growing in popularity! (Everybody loves Batman right?) So this style was more handheld friendly.
-An experient really, to see how well it would work in that sort of environment.
Now Because it is so apart from the other game, it recieved bad reviews for PC. As a PS Vita game it is immpressive, but as a PC Game...
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=582629249

Because of the style that the Arkham games have used so well(Open world, free-flow combat, third person, etc.), this game obviousy had to bring lots to the table to make up for the lacking features of the regulars. But does it deliver? thats the [[b]Big question[/b], lets see if i can give it justice where its needed. Here is the Pros and Cons:

PROS:
+Interesting side scrolling variant! the introduction of new environments and camera angles that the average third person view wont cut. There are parts where it definetely shows its potential.
+The Progression (Suit armour, Waynetech Upgrades and Combat Unlockables) is done carefully like the other games, but it seems more noticeable than the other games. The Natural Progression that youl find is the best kind there is.
+The Detective mode is very unique and definetely reminds everyone that this was designed for a handheld gaming device.(Swipe finger to use and all that.), but it does shine a new light on detective skills and finding well hidden clues.
+Because it is 2.5D, the Combat is simplified quite a bit, hihgh combos will be much easier to achieve. This is one of the many parts that gets Simplified. (Other examples include: Stealth sequences, hiding areas, Gadget use and the Detective scanner.) -However, Many people who liked the origal combat system will dislike this.
+The Plot is good and the map is heavily influenced by the ongoing story. There are 3 main sections to play in. (These include The Cells blocks, Administration and Industrial.)The best part about these seperate locations is that each one has been captured by 3 of Batman's Biggest villains...Black Mask, Joker and Penguin. This works very well with the story and the feeling of liberating each one is great! Although it isn't as large and "free" as the other games.
+First Appearance of Catwoman in the Arkham Storyline. Amd many new characters are introduced
+The Cutscene illustration is amazing! Its like watching a cartoon or a slideshow in the Batman universe. Its very unique when compared to the other games and its Art-style is a welcome addition to the series. They do seem a bit lazy in parts and switch pictures rather than a fluid scene. This wasnt a big issue for me however.
+The Boss battles are mostly great and provide a respectful difficulty spike in various environements. Guards everywhere with flamethrowers equip Vs gargoyle-hopping stealth sections are a great mix!
+Many Unlockable suits and upgrades provided some reasons for replayability, you wont get everything all your first playthrough either. Lots of cool suits however so i felt that it was worth it at least.
+The Length of 6-8 hours seems normal and proportional for a title of its style and content.
+Serves as an expansion into the world of the Arkham Games, not much else. But it is very interesting because it does take place in Blackgate Penitentiary (The Main Prison before Arkham Asylum.) which is an entirely new location. So at least there is competely new areas to explore.

CONS:
-Recylces lots of content from previous games
-Story is interesting at many parts, but the execution of the concepts appear Too Linear and Dull far more than enough. The Cutscenes do a good job with introductions to characters, important fight scenes and Montages...but thats about it! No long term events, no cliff hangers, hardly anything to lead into the future. The Major build ups to Boss battles or other important sections feel too slow and often include LOTS of backtracking, Especially at the start and even middle of the game. Backtracking is ok, but generally its better if the reason is very justified and well explained. Why get something on the other side of the map, when you can call the Batwing?
-Stealth is suuuper limited for this kind of game, which is a big shame. Because Batman is meant to be an All-Rounder Hero with many different approaches to dangerous situations!
-Because this game was intended for the PS Vita, it has various technical features that are either dumbed down or removed entirely to make it "fit" properly.
-Something minor really but, Collectible placement is the dumbest thing ever! Why is there Waynetech Crates with Armour upgrades within the cells of Blackgate? Is Bruce trying to recover them all from the Incredibly sly criminals who took them? I'll never know...
-So many Boring environments that feel dull and repeated. At least each of the 3 locations has something new to show. Otherwise they wouldnt have a very effective name at all.
-Controls are clunky at the best of times and due to the changing camera angles (When you turn corners, or falll down a hole.) you have to expect quick movement control swaps or little things like that.
-Graphics are the worst of the series, but this just relates back to the fact that it wasnt intended for PC or console.
-Voice Acting is Mainly Sub-Standard, but some characters are done well because they have amazing Voice Actors! (Penguin, Joker and Catwoman sound the best.) This is important for the plot, but doesnt make a huuuge difference. Except when an important Person is talking and you need to work with them/save them! (Giving these kinds of NPC's a few lines for a big chunk of gameplay is strange!)

Final Thoughts:
Well, its no masterpiece, far from it in fact. But people should definetely view this game for the way it was intended and presented. Not a solid Block of story to continue on from Origins. Instead I like to see it as a "test" for the PS Vita to see if The Arkham Series can be introduced to it. And my answer to that "Test" is a big NO.
  • If you like Side scrollers and Action Games, this is for you.
  • If you have been playing much of the arkham series casually and are unsure to get this one, you can take a miss for sure.
  • If you like Batman and want to see the unique art-style that this game has to offer, this is definetely for you.
  • If you are tired of reading this review, dont worry its almost the end
Overall I rate this game an Average score of 6.5/10
Not the best adaptation for Batman, and definetely not one that he needed either. But it exists and it has many good points in the story. Not sure about the continuation though.

Leave a comment below with anything i missed, or any questions. Now if you'll excuse me, im going to play the game all over again to get one suit.. (Like that'll happen)

A solid Batamn: Arkham classic 2D Metroidvania.

While not as pretty as any of the other games in the series, its's definitely a good game. While it lacks the open world gameplay of Origins, City, and Knight, it still includes the stealth and exploration that the series is famous for.

The appeal is more for poeple who like 2D metroidvania games rather than people who enjoyed the the other Arkham games. If you like both, you'll probably like this game.

Good game overall. The idea is good, but still has some basic flaws.
Combat and movement are a little dummy, even if it's a 2.5D game there are some stuff that shouldn't happen on these days.
Story is great, all the detective side is a cool thing.
Basically: Fun game, not fantastic, but enjoyable.
Would recommend.

Fun game, but a lot of glitches that will either ruin ruin your experience or not. I played through the game multiple times to get all the endings, and I gotta say my expeirence wasn't bad by any means. Though I don't think think this game is worth 20 bucks. Get it on a sale or through a CD Keys site.

This game is terrible, but that's not very surprising as it's a cash grab complementing another cash grab. Originally a handheld title for the 3DS and Vita, the game was later ported to home consoles and the PC probably because they realized nobody cared about this game. I think nobody still cares, but let's move on.

The plot is pretty inconsequential just like Arkham Origins. It's not like there can be any tension to the story as you know what's going to happen because of earlier games. The inmates managed to take over Blackgate prison and some hostages to turn the place into a madhouse. Three factions divided the area, that's Joker, Penguin and Black Mask and even though they're supposedly rival gangs you won't see them interact anytime soon. Unfortunately for Batman you need something from each part of the prison to get those hostages to safety. You also might encounter random B-list villains who are there for their boss fight even though they have no reason to be there. Then there's also Catwoman who Batman caught two weeks before the incident and now mysteriously helps you with no ulterior motive at all. Oh and finally there's some hinting at a Suicide Squad thing, but as of this review it's 2016 and we have no word on anything about that.

This game is tedious as all hell. It's structured like a Metroidvania, but it's done so poorly you start wondering if any of the staff even played Super Metroid or Symphone of the Night. Traversing through this horribly-designed areas makes me long for death. What's wrong with it? Let's start with Detective mode. It works like the other games, you activate it with a single button button push, but this time you have to manually scan certain objects with your mouse to check whether you can interact with it or not. You can know the game inside and out, but you will always need to scan it before you can do something that allows you to progress, but this seems to happen selectively depending on the object. This basically means you'll stop dead in your tracks everytime to scan that darn wall just one more time to make sure you can't blow it up. I hope you don't mind this, because you probably will have to leave an area and going to a part you haven't explored yet, because you'll find you don't have the item you need. To be fair, the game most of the time tells you where to go and just not how to get there unless it glitches out and it doesn't appear on the map which has actually happened to me. It's still frustrating to have your progress come to a complete halt, because you don't have a certain utility weapon or missed scanning something. This brings us to exploring. You're always stuck on a 2D plane, however you'll find you can go to different directions with vents or using your grappling hook to get to the background or suddenly the room decides there will be a sharp turn you can take. This doesn't sound too bad, but it makes the map look like an absolute cluster♥♥♥♥. You'll check it every five seconds to make sure you're not heading the wrong way, but it won't help you get into certain rooms, because of some doors are unmarked and rooms with multiple floors are confusing as hell. God forbid you backtrack and forgot how to progress in the room, because of the lack of visual indicators or a helpful map. It doesn't help that the game's levels have no real visual identity and that Batman walks very slowly. To top it all off, there are so many times when a room just locks you out. What I mean by this is that sometimes the game will arbitrarily decide to not let you backtrack the way you came. For example if you use your grappling hook to reach a certain ledge, there's a chance the game won't let you go back by gliding. This means taking a huge detour everytime to go back where you started. Hope you didn't miss anything.

Let's talk about that: the control. This game controls horrible. Combat is terrible. I refuse to believe you can pull off crazy combos like in the other Arkham games. Batmans range for punches and kicks isn't consistent, sometimes hits won't connect and counters flat-out don't work half the time. Not that the game is impossibly hard or anything, because the game is very generous with health and doesn't throw tons of enemies at you all at once. Stealth isn't much better. There are usually only three for each sections and your options are severely limited. It works, but it's watered down. Bosses are the worst aspect of the game. They're deceptively simple, but have little indicators to teach you how they're supposed to work. Penguin is the worst example as he summons goons that can only be taken out in a specific way. If you don't know to beat them, they're practically invincible.

Besides that there really isn't that much to talk about. The music is generic and I don't want to say anything about the graphics because it's a port of a handheld game anyway. Mooks look less like zombies at least, but I still don't get the cutscenes. Why does nobody look like their in-game model. WHO DREW THESE?

So in conclusion this game is bad. Don't waste your money. You're better off with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Heck even Arkham Knight and Origins are better than this.

The game simply doesn't give you enough information, it's clunky, boring to look at, and worst of all, boring to play. If you want a good game with an early Batman, get Batman: Arkham Origins.

Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate Pros & Cons Review

Pros
1: Blackgate continues the adventure from Origins; the story taking place mostly in Blackgate Prison as opposed to a large section of Gotham City.
2: Comicbook-esque cinematics and 2.5D Metroidvania style gameplay offering an entirely different way to play as the Caped Crusader.
3: Collectable Batsuits offers fans a reason to push their skills further and replay the game on harder difficulties to collect them all.

Cons
1: Combat and Stealth borderlines on overly frustrating; precision moves are next to impossible at times due to the nature of the gameplay.
2: Fixed Camera while good for Metroidvania style games doesn’t translate well to Batman’s stealth gameplay; the inability to look around in vents compounds this fact.
3: Boss fights are made frustrating by the clunky controls, leading to many retries and in general it can make navigation difficult.

Overall: 7/10

My thoughts on Batman Arkham Origins - Blackgate,

I’ve never been one for platformer style games but I did enjoy this tile; I’m a sucker for collecting things in games and oh boy does this have a bunch of collectables. Among those collectables are cool new Batsuits but unlike others in the Arkham series where it’s just for show some of these suits actually give you a boost to help you out during the course of the campaign. I recommend hunting down “The Darkest Knight” suit as it basically gives you invulnerability. I also loved the comicbook-esque cinematics… It might not be for everyone but for me it reminded me of watching the original animated series way back in the day.

Unfortunately, as much as I enjoyed playing the game and taking in it’s cool narrative from a unique perspective it was annoyingly frustrating at times due to its finicky controls. Example, when fighting one or more enemies close together and you use cap stun it won’t affect both as in previous titles. Instead you have a 50/50, or even lower chance with more than two, of stunning the intended enemies; which is very problematic when fighting armored knife wielders. Speaking of armaments, the gadgets aren’t exactly all that interesting or innovative… unless you count the slight improvement to the Explosive Gel which can now actually be shot over short distances. The gadgets are not the only thing on the boring side but the level design is also nothing to write home about. They are repetitive and downright boring.

Ultimately, Batman: Arkham Origins – Blackgate is a fun game to play through once or twice but I’d only recommend it for the hardcore fans or those who absolutely love platformers. At the very least I would suggest only picking this title up during one of the many Steam sales for $5.00 because it’s just not worth $19.99, especially when you can grab one of the core Arkham titles for that price instead.

This game is terrible, but that's not very surprising as it's a cash grab complementing another cash grab. Originally a handheld title for the 3DS and Vita, the game was later ported to home consoles and the PC probably because they realized nobody cared about this game. I think nobody still cares, but let's move on.

The plot is pretty inconsequential just like Arkham Origins. It's not like there can be any tension to the story as you know what's going to happen because of earlier games. The inmates managed to take over Blackgate prison and some hostages to turn the place into a madhouse. Three factions divided the area, that's Joker, Penguin and Black Mask and even though they're supposedly rival gangs you won't see them interact anytime soon. Unfortunately for Batman you need something from each part of the prison to get those hostages to safety. You also might encounter random B-list villains who are there for their boss fight even though they have no reason to be there. Then there's also Catwoman who Batman caught two weeks before the incident and now mysteriously helps you with no ulterior motive at all. Oh and finally there's some hinting at a Suicide Squad thing, but as of this review it's 2016 and we have no word on anything about that.

This game is tedious as all hell. It's structured like a Metroidvania, but it's done so poorly you start wondering if any of the staff even played Super Metroid or Symphone of the Night. Traversing through this horribly-designed areas makes me long for death. What's wrong with it? Let's start with Detective mode. It works like the other games, you activate it with a single button button push, but this time you have to manually scan certain objects with your mouse to check whether you can interact with it or not. You can know the game inside and out, but you will always need to scan it before you can do something that allows you to progress, but this seems to happen selectively depending on the object. This basically means you'll stop dead in your tracks everytime to scan that darn wall just one more time to make sure you can't blow it up. I hope you don't mind this, because you probably will have to leave an area and going to a part you haven't explored yet, because you'll find you don't have the item you need. To be fair, the game most of the time tells you where to go and just not how to get there unless it glitches out and it doesn't appear on the map which has actually happened to me. It's still frustrating to have your progress come to a complete halt, because you don't have a certain utility weapon or missed scanning something. This brings us to exploring. You're always stuck on a 2D plane, however you'll find you can go to different directions with vents or using your grappling hook to get to the background or suddenly the room decides there will be a sharp turn you can take. This doesn't sound too bad, but it makes the map look like an absolute cluster♥♥♥♥. You'll check it every five seconds to make sure you're not heading the wrong way, but it won't help you get into certain rooms, because of some doors are unmarked and rooms with multiple floors are confusing as hell. God forbid you backtrack and forgot how to progress in the room, because of the lack of visual indicators or a helpful map. It doesn't help that the game's levels have no real visual identity and that Batman walks very slowly. To top it all off, there are so many times when a room just locks you out. What I mean by this is that sometimes the game will arbitrarily decide to not let you backtrack the way you came. For example if you use your grappling hook to reach a certain ledge, there's a chance the game won't let you go back by gliding. This means taking a huge detour everytime to go back where you started. Hope you didn't miss anything.

Let's talk about that: the control. This game controls horrible. Combat is terrible. I refuse to believe you can pull off crazy combos like in the other Arkham games. Batmans range for punches and kicks isn't consistent, sometimes hits won't connect and counters flat-out don't work half the time. Not that the game is impossibly hard or anything, because the game is very generous with health and doesn't throw tons of enemies at you all at once. Stealth isn't much better. There are usually only three for each sections and your options are severely limited. It works, but it's watered down. Bosses are the worst aspect of the game. They're deceptively simple, but have little indicators to teach you how they're supposed to work. Penguin is the worst example as he summons goons that can only be taken out in a specific way. If you don't know to beat them, they're practically invincible.

Besides that there really isn't that much to talk about. The music is generic and I don't want to say anything about the graphics because it's a port of a handheld game anyway. Mooks look less like zombies at least, but I still don't get the cutscenes. Why does nobody look like their in-game model. WHO DREW THESE?

So in conclusion this game is bad. Don't waste your money. You're better off with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Heck even Arkham Knight and Origins are better than this.

Realistically, it's a port from a console. It's clearly not scaled up... but it's workable. This will be relegated to my "once in a while pile." If you do buy this game, but it when it's cheap.

Fun game, but a lot of glitches that will either ruin ruin your experience or not. I played through the game multiple times to get all the endings, and I gotta say my expeirence wasn't bad by any means. Though I don't think think this game is worth 20 bucks. Get it on a sale or through a CD Keys site.

Gameplay: ok. Most of it is good, but the problem is that you don't do the takedowns (when on yellow during combat, the B+Y, or square + triangle takedown; it depends on what controller or keyboard you use, but I usually play this game with an Xbox 360 controller; and the ground takedown; RT+Y for Xbox controllers and R2+ triangle for PlayStation controllers; i.e., PS2, PS3 and PS4) that were a good part of the Arkham Series. Such a shame that for this game, the combat had to be ruined. :( Other than that, the gamplay is fine.

Story: Great! Liked how the cutscenes were comic styled a little. I got to admit, but usually, for an Arkham game, there are side missions. For this game, there are no side missions, just like Arkham Aslylum (except that Arkham Asylum had only one side mission: collecting Riddler Trophies, solving riddles, analyzing the stories Quincy Sharp left behind for Batman, and alltogether, defeating the Riddler).

New Game + : Sort of annoying when you repeat the game over and over again through New Game +. It just never quits!

Altogether, this game is recommended unless if you REALLY like the combat and side missions from the other Arkham games.

From the start, it just seemed like a platform arcade-game? Maybe it gets better or different later on in the game, but I never got past that stage. I expected something along the lines of the other Arkham-games, but the little I played, it most certainly didn't seem so.

Not worth buying, unless you got it in some sort of Batman-bundle.

Batman™: Arkham Origins Blackgate was trying to copy everything in original arkham series plus an innovative 2.5D sidescrolling game play, but it went bad in everyway. I bought it despite of all the negative comment and I am kinda regret right now.

This game is dumb. Do NOT go into it thinking it's like the rest of the Arkham series - it's not nearly as good. The combat is boring and stiff, the level design is like a C-tier Metroid, and the story is... okay.

This is complete garbage. The controls are clunky, the fighting is garbage and the boss fights are wank. Don't play it, don't let your friends play it.

I have just begun playing this one and I can assure you it is far beyond as good as the first 3! Please do not buy it unless you really feel you need it and even then wait til it is very very discounted! it is not worth the full price.
