Good

A decent formula

If you played the previous titles this one should not come as a surprise. However, just cause its predecessors play the same doesnt take away from how good this title is.
Continuing forward. I dont know of a game that comes across as good as Batman has.
The fighting is simplistic but fun. Gadgets are in abundance and the usage of them is consistent. Cut-scenes are beautiful and voice casting is solid. The continuing saga of the Bat is spot on in Origins.
Fans of the series will be right at home with Origins. If you've never played any I recommend starting from the beginning with Asylum before moving forward with Origins or even Arkham City. Each title has a certain flair and something done better than the other. Asylum made Joker super awesome. Killer Croc fight was memorable. City made open world fun and took away from the linear path in Asylum. Origins kind of blends the best of both worlds. Keeping it linear with the flair of open world fun and extras.
All in all this is the same formula as the others. Rent it, enjoy it, make your choice, mine, buy it and add to your library some good solid Batman stuff. Thanks for your time. Game on!

Story is good enough but all the game breaking bugs will drive you crazy.

Excellent

Third time is the charm

This is a game studio that gets better with every single game. The fighting is better, the boss fights are absolutely amazing. Intense, brutal, and exciting. If you loved the last two don't expect any big changes, more of the same. But the same formula definitely worked for me a third time. It's like a good dish after you add just the right amount of salt to bring out all the right flavors.
