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.

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 much instead.

It's just... I can't. I can't reccomend this game. And I want to. The visuals (being the hand drawn cutscences are great. The voice acting phenomenal though, it being a side game doesn't have near the amount as the main games. I can't get over how terrible the controls are. That's primarily it. I can see past the in game visuals. I have played worse looking games and loved them still. It's just the fact that it's so hard to play. If you REALLY want to experience this game find some lets play of it where they can speed you through the story and let it shine that way.

I wanted to recommend this game! I really did! But after all I just can't.

I read the reviews on this ppage when I bought it of course, I saw it was mixed in total. I read about the bad controls, the clunky camera. How slow this game is and feels.

But I had fallen in love with the Arkham series. And I heard it was Canon so when one day it was on sale for a few bucks I thought "♥♥♥♥ it". I like the series so much I wanted to expeirence everything.
What a Mistake I made. he Story told here is not worth ♥♥♥♥. And while it may still be canon it is just so ♥♥♥♥ing non-saying and insignificant.

I could repeat all the gameplay and control issues that many others have pointed out once again. But I really don't see the point.

And to convince you a little more. I am not a picky player by any means. I can pull myself through alot for the sake of a game or a story. I can overlook many flaws.
And it happened during this game too. At the start I immediatly noticed what everyone meant here by the game's issues and it really did feel bad. But I pulled myself through and got used to it. And while it was never really fun. It was playable in the middle.

But then the endgame oh the ♥♥♥♥ing end game. Especially the Penguin Boss fight and if he is the last you defeat that's what coming after it. Frustrating, unecessary and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t.

I can just repeat what many others said before me.
Even if on Sale, heck even if free.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!! Look up the cutscenes on YT if you really wanna know.

2016年2月24日终于把Batman™: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition给全成就了,打了4周目(本来只要3周目即可)
剧情方面:开篇蝙蝠侠追赶猫女,而后高谭市警察出现,让猫女跑了。蝙蝠侠从戈登处了解到小丑,企鹅人和黑面具准备在黑门监狱制造一场爆炸,蝙蝠侠将其一一击败后来到阿卡姆之翼结果发现原来是猫女利用了自己来帮助贝恩逃狱,正当蝙蝠侠准备动手时,猫女说有炸弹,结果蝙蝠侠将其一一拆除后发现中计了,贝恩跑了,而后在灯塔处打败猫女。谁知FBI出现并以政府监控为由带走了猫女和贝恩。而后蝙蝠侠通过窃听器发现FBI与军方将利用贝恩等人作为战士来利用。同时小丑,企鹅人和黑面具各自逃出高谭市警察的抓捕。废话这么多其实就是蝙蝠侠被利用了,背后有巨大的政府阴谋。总体来说剧情还可以。8.5/10
打斗方面:由于是伪3D,打斗其实很不给力,完全是陪衬,即使手残也可以轻松过关。5/10
关卡方面:通篇充斥着各种谜题,跑路。路痴估计得一直看地图跑。7/10
音乐方面:BOSS战的音乐还可以,平时打斗觉得不够激情。7/10
总体评价:7.5/10 适合老爷粉来玩玩,全成就也不难

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.

Found this im my suspiciously hiding in my Steam library... Why do they release games not designed for PC's on PC? Anyway its the biggest crock of wank you've ever played. Poorest port since Deus Ex The Fall.

Era pra ser uma nota 4, porque esse jogo é deplorável, mas o "Thank you for playing" no fim amoleceu meu ódio. 5/10

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.
