Right lets start by saying that allthough this game is set in the same storyline as the "ARKHAM" games it doesnt really play out in the same way that the other games actually do (even though it still carries the "ARKHAM" tag).
Ok lets just say that having said that,that the actual fight mechanics,gadgets and all around atmosphere feels like it does in most "ARKHAM" games but thats where the similarities end,to be honest the way you play the actual game feels more like an oldschool "METROID" or "CASTLEVANIA" game and it plays out from that viewpoint.
Now this is no major problem as this only spoils your enjoyment of this well made game if you sit and think about it to much "HEY THIS DOESNT PLAY LIKE THE OTHER ARKHAM GAMES,ME UPSET AND WANT MY MONEY BACK",and to be honest once you get used to it the 2.5d way the game is put forward actually feels fresh and new (well as new and fresh as it can feel anyway).
Lets get onto the fundamentals of the game,the graphics really do their job and do it well of putting over the whole atmosphere of playing in a "BATMAN" game and the cutscenes look like they have been stolen straight out of a graphic novel.
The sound in game is top notch from music and sound effects to spoken dialogue,everything sounds just as it should and puts forward that vibe that you need to convice you that you are in fact playing a "BATMAN" game.Mention must go to the voice actors and in particular 3 people Troy Baker who plays the JOKER and does (in my humble opinion) a fantastic job as the clown prince of crime (must say though that i do like and miss Mark Hamil,but well everything changes-not allways for the best though),Roger Craig Smith who does an excellent job of capturing that sound and dark forboding feel of THE DARK KNIGHT and Grey DeLisle who does a great job as the sultry and allways intriguing CATWOMAN (heres a trivia fact for everyone Grey DeLisle had been playing a certain Daphne Blake since 2001).
Ok on to the story,well actually no as to tell even any details would spoil both your enjoyment and the sheer buzz you will get out of playing it lets just say that i can mention a few certain villians that appear in the game 1-JOKER,2-PENGUIN,3-CATWOMAN and 4-BLACKMASK,there are other villians in the game and they are there for you to discover for yourself as if i say anymore it would spoil the whole story.
I will say this though that the game and story take place in BLACKGATE and that the whole thing takes part in 4 distinct areas the Cell Block, the Industrial Area, and the Administration Offices (with each playing out slightly different from the others,with each needing certain upgrades in your epuipment to beat and master),and each area has its own BOSS and at the end its own BOSS battle (some are easy,some hard and a few border on SATANICALLY DIFFICULT-you know which fight i mean you game you)
Will you enjoy taking another journey into the DARK KNIGHTS world,well yes if you love BATMAN and have any interest in playing a well made and put together peice of entertainment then why are you still reading this review go and buy the game and if not "HOLY HECK BATMAN,WHY NOT THIS GAME IS STUPENDOUS" says ROBIN and how can you disagree with a man brave enough to wear tights and go out in public (well at least he was like that in the 1960s American live action television series,GOD it would take some nerve to do that today)

So at first, I didn't know what Arkham Origins - Blackgate was. I looked at some reviews and there a mix of good and bad. Alot of people said that the combat was bad, detective mode and visuals were horrible.

So the game takes place three monthes after Batman Arkham Origins.The basic story is you got a blackgate prison out break, and Batman is trying to stop this outbreak by gaining control of the 3 blocks the prison is divided in by bringing back power to each block. Each block is controlled by a villian. Arkham Wing - Penguin, Administration Building - The Joker, and Industrial Building - Black Mask. Note there is also Soloman Grundy, Deadshot and Catwoman in this game. The game offers a bit of a choice as you can kind of go after The Joker, Penguin or Black Mask in any order.This does give a new way an arkham game could work, as in all the other arkham games the order in which you chase your villians changes as the story goes on. (Side quests don't count.) There are side quests you can do in this game, but it feels a big task in doing them, and not very fun like in the other arkham games.

So let me tell you some things about the combat. Me personally, I didn't find the combat bad, at times I did like it. However, it could use quite a bit of work. First of all, it is a 2.5D game, as in its a 2D Sidescroller game Where you can only move left and right, but you're moving around in a 3D World. This already gives you a sense of why people are not liking the combat. The combat in the other arkham games were more free flow and fast paced, where as in arkham blackgate, its restricting, annoying and slow. By restricting I mean you can only fight enemies who are close to you, and fighting off other enemies requires you to jump over the one closest to you, and make your way more up with enemies farther.

The controls aren't good as they're are unresponsive and kind of dumb. It almost pains me to play the game as it more feels like a task. The map itself is very annoying as you can get lost so many times and you're basically spending hours just trying to get to your main point.On top of that, you need to find upgrades in this map which can also be a pain, as in if you don't the boss battles can be unbeatable.

So far for the boss battles, Penguin so far being the hardest as if one of his guards spot you, they litterly shoot you to death. This is hard as you're in a small area, and to get the guards away from penguin you have to give distractions which gets hard as they see you all most all the time, and there are drones.

Now keep in my mind, this game was originally designed to be on a 3DS/PS Vita. Armature Studies gave a port to give the arkham fans an original feel as all arkham games are for the console (originally made by rocksteady). However, if a game that is deisgned for the 3DS/PS Vita, a game shouldn't have the same design on console/pc versions. if you do, you get all of what I said before, annoying combat, bad maps, annoying controls, it works but is almost unenjoyable and a task to play.

I don't want to reccomend or not reccomend the game. As an arkham fan the story was decent. Nothing special. Explains a little of what happened between Batman Origins and arkham asylum. So, I will say this. Get this game when its on sale, as its worth the price of 5 bucks. The game itself isn't worth the 20, and that I can say right now even not having beating the game.

Overall, it deserves a

Comic book style animation/cut scenes, The story played out like a comic, It has its flaws but overall was a solid game. It doesn't live up to the Arkham name, but for true fans its a solid entry and a look into. Sadly you have to complete it three times to get the final 4 achievements, But the story doesn't take as long as the collectibles did. With that being said the collectibles were tedious and you have to use your analyzer/detective vision every square inch so you don't miss a hint. Also you have to analyze most areas that are destructible to use the proper gadget on in order to move on. You can't just use it right of the bat, which was a little aggravating. 7/10.

Only for bigger Batman fans, it's a side scrolling game meant for handhelds like the Nintendo 3DS. It had really cool comic book artwork for the cutscenes and a very interesting way of navigating from scene to scene sometimes, but most of the time you're only option is left or right. The combat is trickier as it's harder to counter attacks. Using the detective vision with the mouse is pretty cool. This game was fun but many people might only get a few minutes of enjoyment out of it.

The story involves Catwoman (first appearance of?), who is communicating with Batman and helping him navigate the prison.

Kevin Conroy voices Batman, worth it right there.

This game starts off as a decent Metroidvania. The 2.5D graphics and gameplay actually work pretty well though not as good as the main Arkham titles. The fighting is also well done though simpler. The problem with the game is the boss battles that introduce new, one-time elements required to complete them. They are so confusing that the last 3 battles I was required to go online to a strategy guide to figure out what the heck I needed to do. Worth a purchase if under $5 though I see few people wanting to finish it completely.

I shouldn't have given these guys money, but I was bored enough to.

Really slow, boring, hand-holdy game. The only fun of the game comes from the combat, but even it isn't very good: plays like a lesser version of the others. The artwork in cutscenes is nice. I can't recommend this to anyone, but if you have your expectations in check, y'know, buy at risk.

As someone who has enjoyed the Arkham series to date, I found this game to be really kind of frustrating. In presentation it's really just a much more scripted version of the Arkham series with comic-based cutscenes. That's not a bad thing, of course, but it feels a little odd to have all of your grapple points set for you after the free roaming of earlier games. The thing that bothers me the most, though, is that absolutely none of the combat timing seems to carry over to this game from previous games in the series. There's a small but very significant delay between button press and action that make countering a surprisingly irritating trial. I'm used to countering just before the blow lands, whereas here you've got to hit counter literally the instant the blue lines show up to have any hope at all of actually performing the action in time. Perhaps I'll come back to it later, but for now I'm too frustrated with this to find any real fun in it.

As a huge Batman Arkham fan, I thought $5 for a little mobile game seemed like a great price. I was wrong. The story was decent enough and a good epilogue to Arkham Origins, but sadly everything else is lacking.

The main problem is the combat. The game is just not fun to play. The Free Flow which works so well in the main series games is back, except in 2D it barely functions at all. Without freedom of movement, the combat is boring and badly executed. Also, the game's stealth mechanics are laughable--one wrong move and instant fail.

My main gripe with the game is the horrible, horrible mechanics. For instance, there is a hacking minigame which is decent enough until you get to the end of the game. Then, they make you backtrack around the entire facility using their terrible in-game map, tacking a totally unnecessary hour onto the game's length. And guess what happens if you fail this hacking minigame? You get sent back several minutes and have to do it all over again.

That's another problem I had with the game. All the boss fights are one-wrong-move-instant-fails with no mid-fight checkpoints and you have to listen to the terrible intro every single time for no reason. Most of the bosses are extremely repetitive and boring, as well.

Overall, even if you're a big Batman Arkham fan, this game just isn't worth the frustration. What could have been a unique, satisfying Metroidvania-style experience is ruined by bad controls, gameplay and combat. Even for a dollar, it just isn't worth playing.

Horrible little game, and this is speaking as someone who spent only 5 bucks on it, 5 bucks that I could have spent getting diarrhea from the dollar menu at Taco Bell. Tons of backtracking, then you finally beat the three bosses only to find out that there are 5 objectives hidden somewhere on the entire map, therefore you must once again backtrack all over the place to find them and their locations are based off of which boss you beat last. If that isn't enough, one of the variations requires you to find 3 junction boxes for each objective within a time limit, so guess what? More backtracking and seeing portions of the map you have seen many times before!!! As an extra bonus, sometimes the junction boxes may not register as being blown up with the explosive gel, so it may take two or more attempts for the game to realize that you have indeed blown them all up.

I swear, this game has more padding than a flat-chested girl's bra on prom night. Off to YouTube to see how it ends and ties into everything. Oh, and a pro-tip for Bats: Next time you plan on going into a maximum security prison that holds all of your major foes..... GRAB EVERY SINGLE ITEM IN YOUR ARSENAL BEFORE GOING IN! Don't go in half-♥♥♥♥♥!

As a Batman fan I have to say that I really enjoyed this game! :)
Yes, it's a handheld port and all, but even then it's a pretty decent game.
I read mixed reviews which said taht the game sucks because of poor graphics and bad gameplay. I wont comment on graphics, because I don't play games for graphics, and nobody should. About gameplay, well here were a bit of problems with controls and there were some stupid game mechanics that became very annoying after a while!

About controlls first:
The controlls are pretty responsive, but there were some times when you had to do/press a button multiple times for it to work, whch can get very annoying after a time, especially if you have to hury because a timer.
For example: When you do the bomb hunting/hostage rescuing at the end of the game and you have to enter a went by holding the A button on a 360 pad, and it wont register after a few times, not until you go away from the went hole and go back for it to show the (Hold A to Enter). This is very annoying!
Other problems I didn't encounter with the controlls, other than this, the controlls are great and very easy to learn.

The only annoying mechanics in the game for me was the Scanner!
In the beginning I thought of it asa neat feature, but after a while it got so annoying that you had to do it almost every time for you to go on ahead! Even for things that were staright forward and didn't need any further explanation!
Other than this little annoying thing, haven't really got any more issues with the game.

The game itself is on the shorter side because you can beat it in 3 or 4 hours most IF you don't do any side content and exploring! Your very first playthrough may bea bit longer if you like to stop from the main story and do a bit of exploring.
Keep in mind that by exploring I don't mean to explore the entire map or anything like in the past games, because this ins't a full 3D game, it's just a 2.5D platformer, but believe me that you can get lost very easily.
I myself, when I did my first playthrough of this, it took me roughly 15hours, because I did collect everything and did all the side content, but my other playthrougs were only abput 3 or 4 hours as I said earlier because I just rushed from start to finish to get all the endings.

And yes, it's true that you'll have to do a bit of back tracking when you hunt for the collectibles, but it's not that bad!

From my experience and for Being a huge Batman fan, with all the little flaws that this game has, I'll give it a 7.5/10.
It's not a great game, but it's not bad either! If you like the Batman series or Batman in general, I think that you'll love this too!

I liked it - the story isnt that interesting, but I did like the metroidvania-lite atmosphere. Its hard to reccomend, I am a Batman nut so if it's a solid game I'll thumbs up anything. To a casual you probably wont find much to light - its on the light side, the puzzles and metroidvania elements are pretty basic and the combat can get very frustrating sometimes especially when you got 2-3 specials on the screen that need specific tactics to deal with. In traditional Batman Arkham games this wouldnt be an issue as its 3D - however being this is 2/2.5D it becomes a huge clutter at times trying to deal with multiple enemy types. A personal nitpick is that I was able to unlock a new suit before the end of the game, whcih also goes into New-Game+, that makes you invincible...kind of a game breaker.

More on the story - it's pretty bare bone. You are sent to Blackgate to rescue hostages, but there is no dialogue, no interaction with anyone really aside from the brief boss fights or conversation with Catwoman. To spoil a little even the motivations you find are pretty irrelevant, at the end you dont even know why the villian was doing what they were doing - if anything other than a paycheck. The three hub villians are really in it for screen time and to cause chaos. Its just an excuse to throw Batman into 3 hubworlds against typical thugs. I semi compared it to Indiana Jones' contribution to Raiders of the Lost Ark, courtesy of the Big Bang Theory. I left the game feeling the story did nothing to me, unaccomplished and quite possibly if I, or Batman, were not apart of it, the same result would have occured or nothing at all.

If I had to rate the game it would be a 3/5 - its above average, 20 dollars might be a little steep for what you're getting in the end especially with the actual content the game provides though. Bought it on sale for 5 dollars, 1 playthrough got me 8.5 hours. 21/30 achievements. I personally dont have an interest to revist the game again - at least not for awhile. It does quite literally nothing to advance the plot of Arkham Origins, or anything specific to Batman. There is an interesting ultra sidestory of Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad that anyone who watches Batman or DC Comics can call the second its on camera.

This is a fun game, but nothing like the other Arkham games. My only criticisms are that I wish the controls and navigation were a bit better and that the Joker's writing/dialog was somewhat lame. Other than that, great game. Totally worth the money I spent on it.

I finished up Origins and picked this up for $5 just to keep the ball rolling. Honestly, I can say I shouldn't have bothered. I don't know what it was like before the "deluxe" upgrade, but this version certainly doesn't help much either. Perhaps if this had been the original game that started it all (then jumped to 3D with Asylum) a lot of the game's problems wouldn't be seen as such and it could've been a overwhelming good time. As it is now, the game is basically a regressed version of the series, plagued with too many fun sucking aspects, ranging from plain annoyances to full on boneheaded (spike strips).


+Comic cutscenes are nice
-Story itself wasn't anything special


-All that you may be familiar with has been stripped away: speed, precision, quickfire gadgets, even the freaking slide tackle is gone! Throughout the whole game I would still instinctively try to pull these things off during combat to no avail because the actions are so ingrained in me.
-Enemies freely move in and out of your plane, causing you to miss sometimes. Other times, Batman doesn't focus on the right target, which at worst case scenario leads to you hurting yourself by attacking a stun baton wielding enemy head on.
-Boss fights, while unique, don't offer much to delight in as they are simple and quickly over.


+The only change to the formula I did like was the new cryptographic hacking. Instead of twiddling the sticks to form words in the other games, here you have a grid of numbers that you move a box over to match up a 3 digit sequence.
+Lots of areas to cover

-Lack of quick exit/travel to the 3 main branches of the prison. Later on there are a couple of shortcuts that will take you from one to another but they aren't labeled on the map in any noticeable way so you'll probably have a difficult time remember them.
-Map can be confusing at times since it isn't rotatable and multiple pathways will overlap each other
-Spike strips on the floor. Really, who in their right mind came up with this genius obstacle? Sorry, player, we're going to make it travel even more of a chore by having you need to keep your eyes out for these instead of being able to tune out while you only want to get from one end of the room to the other. And naturally since Batman is just starting out and hasn't yet trained a day in his life, he can't merely hop over these tiny hindrances. Instead you have to double tap the button to roll over and avoid damage. If this causes you to exit and delete the game in the first 15 minutes, I completely understand (I'm dead serious, these things are pure garbage.)

If you're really dying for more Batman after the main games (and at this time before Arkham Knight's release) then you could go for this at a budget price. I did though and throughout I didn't feel it was worth the time.
