    A great release for those who enjoy the Arkham games but haven't played Blackgate for whatever reason.

    It feels quite far from the main episodes, but if you looking for a metroidvania game, with good exploring sections and puzzles, this is an interesting choice.

    Batman glides from PS Vita to PS3 with a successful attempt to adapt it, but doesn't make you forget that originally it is a handheld game. An interesting game that widens the Arkham universe, although, due to obvious reasons it may disappoint fans of the latest installments of the bat.

    Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate is an interesting action adventure in 2'5D, but it does not do justice to the great saga of videogames.

    Though it was dubbed the Deluxe Edition, its inclusions of extra costumes, a small graphical upgrade from the Vita version, and an increase in enemy encounters, can't help distinguish Blackgate from its handheld roots. Blackgate is an entertaining title that links well with where the overarching Arkham Origins story was going -- it's just a shame that the titles handheld origins weren't improved upon.

    If Batman: Arkham City effectively made you feel like the dark knight, then Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate turns you into an overweight cosplayer with a batsuit that was made by your mum.

    Whichever release in the series you compare it to, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition will always come off worst.
