Worth your time but don't expect anything amazing

Batman "Arkham origins Blackgate" is a ambitious game, but falls short of the mark. Most fans of the Arkham series will pass up this game, however the cool cut scenes and interesting gameplay is worth your time. The game stumbles however with the shallow combat and lackluster visuals. This also is a reminder of the vita's underutilized hardware, the vita can handle so much more than a copy of a 3ds game. The game features a new detective mode I liked where so slide your finger across the touchscreen to reveal hidden things or hints to continue you progress. collectables like new suits and detective case are here as well and can prolong the games replay value. I beat the game in about 7 hours, which is perfect for a handheld. Also, no spoilers but the end sequence can get very aggravating. In conclusion Batman "Arkham origins Blackgate" is a good game on paper but falls short in the game. Its definitely worth your time, but don't come in with high expectations. I give the game a good 7.5/10.

combat is not that great since you are limited to basically only attack, counter, dodge. Boss fights can be very frustrating at times.

It's a good and entertaining game for VITA. Didn't experienced those bugs people are talking about. I would not buy it though, but for renting it is perfect.
