Bat­man: Arkham Ori­gins

fea­tures a defin­ing tale set in a snowy Gotham City on Christ­mas Day, when Bat­man is hunted by eight dead­liy as­sas­sins.

In the game Bat­man has new lethal en­e­mies like the ar­moured en­forcer and the mar­tial artist. Bat­man has a few new moves too, as well as some new gad­gets. Play­ers can use the re­mote claw to di­rectly at­tack en­e­mies by string­ing them up from van­tage points or they can shoot us­ing the con­cus­sion det­o­na­tor which is more like a stun gun which dis­ori­ents op­po­nents in close com­bat. Jump­ing down on foes from build­ing rooftops never gets tir­ing.

The sim­ple con­trols make for an en­joy­able game, with dodg­ings and coun­ters be­ing as im­por­tant as al­ways. And there is a new online mode that lets you play online with friends. You could chose to be on the side of the good guys, Bat­man and Robin, or take a walk on the dark side with su­per vil­lain Elite and the Joker's or Bane's gang.

The graph­ics are good, but the Xbox 360 and PS3 ver­sions do wit­ness low frame rates at times. Whether or not you're a Bat­man fan, Ori­gins will ig­nite a fire in the belly of ev­ery close com­bat gamer with its ex­cit­ing cam­paign and online play.
