Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Review


WB Games have not just stripped back graphics to bring the game to the Vita and 3DS, but instead brought in a whole new studio to work on a 2.5D Metroid [...]

"Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate" is not quite the runaway success that I hoped for at Gamescom. On the Vita the map is pretty confusing and requires constant checking to find out if you’re heading in the right direction. The backtracking is also...

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate: Bat-vania returns


Batman: Arkham Asylum drew a lot of comparisons to Metroid when it released in 2009. Arkham City and Arkham Origins have been steadily moving away from that formula ever since, trading upgrade-driven exploration for open-world gameplay. Blackgate,...

Solid combat, upgrades awarded through exploration, great comic and voice work

Map is hard to navigate, getting spotted is hugely punishing in predator segments

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate


It has to live up to both Rocksteady's Arkham games and expectations of a great Metroidvania - and it gets..

It’s a bit of a shame that the Arkham-inspired side of this game doesn’t quite live up to what came before, but the Metroidvania aspect certainly does. And this is something for which a lot of genre fans will be grateful.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Review


When I heard that Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate would be a 2.5D adventure complete with many of the sweet abilities we enjoyed in the console iterations, I was excited. The PlayStation Vita could definitely use a top-quality title featuring the...

Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate review: Dynamic 2.5D


Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is the latest in the excellent Arkham series, and its first handheld game. It's also the first original game from Armature Studio since it was formed by Metroid Prime expats in 2008. Because both sides of the family...

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is a 2.5-D game developed by Armature Studios that brings the Batman Arkham experience for the first time to Nintendo and Sony handheld systems. A companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins, players can continue the...

Batman: Arkham Origins -- Blackgate


Set several months after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins, and serving as something of a companion release to the console versions of that game, Blackgate once again finds players fighting crime as the Caped Crusader, albeit in a side-scrolling, 2.5D

Flügellahmer Flattermann


Er habe sich eingeengt gefühlt, sagte Mark Pacini hinterher. Flexibilität sei keiner der vielen Vorzüge bei Nintendo gewesen, einem Unternehmen, dem er die letzten acht Jahre seines Lebens widmete. Eine gute Zeit, anstrengend zwar, oft hart, aber...

Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition


Batman n'a décidément pas de chance. Après avoir purgé Gotham City de son engeance dans Batman Arkham Origins, le voilà à nouveau confronté à Black Mask, au Joker et au Pingouin fraîchement débarqués à la prison de Blackgate et ayant de surcroît pris...

Le concept proche de celui d'un Metroïd ; La maniabilité n'est pas mauvaise ; Mélange d'action et infiltration ; La bande-son (malgré l'absence de voix françaises) ; Le visuel plus fin

Qui tourne malheureusement très rapidement en rond ; Rythme peu soutenu ; Beaucoup trop d'allers-retours ; Peu d'idées au final ; Peu de gadgets ; Système de combat bridé ; Map peu lisible ; Durée de vie ; Adaptation paresseuse ; Prix excessif

Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate n'est pas un mauvais bougre, mais si le concept de départ, couplé à l'idée de suite directe d'Origins, était bon, il est dommage de constater autant de soucis à tous les niveaux. En effet, entre un gameplay sympathique...

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Review


Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is geen poging om een consolewaardige Batman-game naar de handhelds te brengen. Een goede beslissing, want juist door dat stapje achteruit, doen zich hele nieuwe mogelijkheden voor. Helaas weet ontwikkelaar Armature...

Veel vrijheid ; 2,5D goed uitgewerkt ; Nodigt uit tot verkennen en backtracken

Map werkt niet goed ; Backtracken na een tijdje saai ; Veel te kort ; Matig checkpointsysteem

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is een goede en originele poging om de Batman-formule naar de handheld te brengen. Het vernuftige gebruik van diepte in deze sidescroller en de implementatie van onder andere het vertrouwde freeflow vechtsysteem is...
