Haven't had time to get to a store and buy it yet. A high school buddy of mine worked on it as a level designer! Really excited to try it out.
I haven't played Origins, but Asylum and City were great.
I loved just about everything about the first two, but my absolute favorite thing actually ended up being the combat system. I'm not usually someone who cares too much about "100% Completion" or "Expert Trials" or "Bonus Challenges", but those games kept me coming back until there was nothing left for me to do (yes, even all the Calender Man holidays. )
Have you tried the multiplayer yet? What do you think? I heard it was kind of like "Spies vs Mercs" from Splinter Cell, which was surprisingly fun to play.
I've played a bit more and can definitely say, if you liked the first two Batman games (like I did) then this will definitely be up your alley. It seems to reuse some of the maps from the previous game(s) but I'm not 100% sure on that or if I'm remembering incorrectly and so far it's just more of the same but for me, since I really liked the first two games, more of the same is awesome.
The reviews I've seen say the PvP is a good first attempt but lackluster.
If Batman: Arkham Origins does one thing well, it's epitomize the kind of exploitative garbage that has steadily eroded so much faith in the so-called "AAA" gaming scene. When publishers whine and moan about piracy or used sales, this is the kind of game you can point to when you ask if it's any surprise that so few customers are unwilling to gamble $60 on a brand new game. This is the kind of game that, when publishers panic over flagging sales, you can hold up and say, "You did it to yourselves."
This game is a battery killer, I play non stop as I work as in a shop so there is some period where there is totally no customer and I will game on.
I never get my tablet to 100% even over night = = and samsung device when charging will not increase fast. When I play MPQ while charging the battery decrease and not increase Q^Q
