    Batman fans, what are your expectations for Batman Arkham Origins?

    Batman Arkham Origins releases later this month and I was wondering what other Batman fans will expect when they pop it into their ps3. It's not being developed by Rock Steady unlike Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

    Do you think it will be good? Bad? Average?

    I'm not very hyped for it, i loved the previous 2, but this one doesn't seem to introduce anything new. Like how AC had a big city to roam in, yes there wasn't much to do in it, but still it was an improvement.

    Not overly optimistic, but quietly content with how it's shaping up. I absolutely adored Arkham City but having seen the switch of developers I'm just a little weary. It'll probably be pretty solid and run-of-the-mill, wouldn't expect anything too fantastic. I hope to be proven wrong!

    Not getting it anytime soon, probably when it hits the bargain bin. After AA I got AC day one but with a completely different developer behind this I'm skeptical. Also not really a fan of prequels, that just shows they're running out of ideas.

    As the poll shows,most likely it'll be average. There isn't any evolution from the previous title except maybe one or two new types of enemies. I was hoping for maybe a little couch co-op or something with Robin,Nightwing,or Batgirl maybe some vehicles added. A fully,fleshed-out,Gotham to explore. Maybe Rocksteady is saving that for the PS4/next gen
    I had no intentions of becoming a leader. It is as a warrior how I shall be remembered, but these are hardly numbers worth dying for.

    I'm not expecting it to be amazing, but at least on par as the other two games. So yeah, fairly excited.

    Well if it's to be at least on par the other two (namely Arkham City), then it'd have to be amazing!

    Its by different people so I kind of expect it'll be a downgrade from the previous two, and be average at best. Hopefully I'm wrong however, I loved the previous two.

    I hope people don't assume it will automatically be worse than previous games just because the developer is different. Do I think it will knock my socks off and put Rocksteady to shame? No but I don't expect a complete flop either.

    It IS Batman after all. You've got my interest right away. I expect I'll enjoy the game.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    I watched a 2 hour walkthrough of it, it was just okay. Didnt seem as good as AC to me.

    IGN's score is out - 7.8/10. Not on par with the previous iterations, seemingly. Was to be expected - still a great score, though!

    Batman fans, what are your expectations for Batman Arkham Origins?

    It's a good game, not great. It has the rock-solid formula of Arkham City but doesn't do anything new with it. The story, in many ways, is the best in the trilogy, but in many others ways it just feels like we've seen it before.

    The review scores are better than I thought they would be. I'll be picking it up someday.

    Based on what i saw from the first and second games the third installment should be amazing. I am really looking forward to this game.

    I enjoyed the game a lot, however the others I played through more than once but I couldn't play through again with this one. Something about the combat isn't as fluid and fun

    It felt like a Batman AC add on or content that did not make the final cut. Overall I wish that I would have waited til a price cut like I planned. I never fought Dead Shot or Shiva, what happened to them?
