These reviews are pretty mixed. Can't say i'm surprised, I just got home with mine so I will have to see where this one lies with me. I loved Arkham Asylum and City was really good but a little too all over the place. Only thing I can say I will certainly be missing is dat catwoman.

It was pretty obvious that this new Batman wasn't going to get scores like the last 2 did. Origins basically doesn't do much different from the last 2 so that was going to hurt it right away. Also the inclusion of a crappy multiplayer mode drags down some of the scores too. You would think that some of these developers would learn by now that when you tack on a poor Multiplayer mode it's going to hurt your game more than it will help.

I wouldn't trust IGN for a bag of peanuts with their reviews. Most of their reviews stink like garbage in a landfill. You have to give credit to WB for not altering the franchise with new game mechanics. They wanted to keep it as it was. Why fix something that isn't broken. I mean I am waiting patiently for my game to arrive in the mail and I am hoping it will get here soon!

 

Thanks,

Yea I don't trust reviewers today either. The boatload of 10's given to GTA4 and GTA5 alone sickens me. I just expected the scores for this game to be nowhere near as good as the past 2 because the game really is just arkham city with a new story and characters. The multiplayer mode for it is garbage so that drags the score down too.

The fact it's not developed by Rocksteady immediately killed it for me.

Basically a 7.8 because it wasn't as good as the other two LOL. I'm sure if this was the first game in the series it would had got a 9.00

well, of course, since it would bring new thing to the table. It's the third one and it's more of the same, which can be good or not, depends on how you look at it

I will just copy/paste my previous answer to an IGN review posting:

 

 

It's IGN, who cares?

Actually, why care about any reviews? The only person that can determine whether or not a game is fun for you, is you.
