Average User Score: 2.6Jan 1, 2015So, I bought Unity with patch 1.4.0 since I thought it would be playable. It was. Sometimes. Average. But not any better.
So I have AMDSo, I bought Unity with patch 1.4.0 since I thought it would be playable. It was. Sometimes. Average. But not any better.
So I have AMD FX-8350 and GeForce GTX 760 so I thought it would run on low-medium with maybe 30 fps?
Well it couldn't. So if I would put higher settings, it would drop the fps so it would look worse then low settings. Didn't know how that would be possible, but I don't "question" ubisoft.
I don't usually get it when people rage so much about a bad port and before I bought the game and looked some reviews who have gave it 0-2/10 I thought it can't be that bad. I was wrong. It is.
So, after arguing about graphics, that are bad since this game is very badly optimized and it has 4 different patches and the game still runs badly and has a lot of bugs. Sometimes Arno doesn't climb up or drop for no reason. And sometimes I get stuck on a wall and can't move.
Ok, let's get to the co-op. I've played it 3 times now and I've had Unity about 2 weeks since I can't find anybody due to uplay and when I do, I have to wait 5 minutes of loading screens. And 2 I played to completion which were kind of meh and third one bugged so I had to close the game.
Story? Meh. You go there, kill some people, done. It had some interesting moments at start but they stop very quickly in third or fourth one to boring and repetitive. It's not worst story and Arno is sometimes likable. And voice acting is pretty good. If some of the actors knew how to speak french.
Combat? Well it's not more boring then ever, since one-shot kills are gone, enemies to massive damage to you, counter works about 30 % at the time and you can't win against a big group of enemies. And if some guy dodges/parries your attacks you just have to wait him to strike and hope that counter works since for some reason they took ability to break defense away.
Phantom Blade is nice addition though. It's about only one.
Parkour is good when it works, but it doesn't work all the time so it's meh. Free-running up and down is good addition, if it works, but sometimes when there are a lot of civilians, it doesn't so it's meh addition too.
Paris looks great when fps goes to 30 which happens about once per five minutes. During your synchronatization on tall buildings you see a big landscape of Paris which is beautiful until fps drops to 5-10.
Bot, there aren't a lot of animus anymore so that's 10/10. I hated it. Especially in AC 4 since you couldn't do parkour and fight like in previous games, but just walk and run little faster with ipad. And hack sometimes and hear some **** in your ear.
Then there are those time anomalies, which feels like the only reason they are there to show how beautiful Paris was during different periods of time. But since optimization is bad, Paris looks like sh*t and they feel like pointless efforts.
And since Eagle Vision has cooldown too since there are case files or something like that so they aren't too easy, but both feel like a useless addition. And since map is filled with side activities, it feels pointless.
And don't even get me on that Iniaties or mobile app bullsh*t. And micro transactions. In a single-player game with 50-60 € price tag? Iniaties is used to open gold chest and get outfits from previous AC games, but since it doesn't work neither, it's pointless. Mobile app is bad too, so don't touch it.
And I hope nobody buys those stupid helix points or whatever so ubisoft learns not to but micro transactions in their games!
Gameplay: Parkour 7/10, gombat 4/10.
Graphics would be good, if fps wouldn't be on 5-15, so 2/10.
Other activities 5/10
Replay value: with bugs again and overpowered enemies, story meh, 5/10.
So overall, about 5/10 game.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.5May 1, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Don't get me wrong. I'm huge Spider-Man fan, I think he's greatest hero there is. And it sucks so much that this game isn't so good I hoped it would be. It's bad. Don't believe people saying it's 10/10. It's not. Seriously.
PC version has a lot of glitches, graphic bugs, frame rates and whatnot. Sometimes I cannot finish side mission, since the building where I have to save humans is gone. Game looks pretty bad to be next-gen title. And this new Hero or Menace thing is hard, if you skip one of those 10 missions in map, you suddenly became Menace. And I don't want to save citizens in peril during story missions, or when I'm going to somewhere. And every time you finish one, you get annoying Daily Bugle news.
The worst aspect of this game is that it tries so hard to be like Arkham games. And we have Spider-Man games that aren't and are still good (USM, SMSD, SM2). We have Spider-Sense that's basically detective vision except you don't scan anything. But it's blurry and I didn't want to use it. But I had to. We also have predator missions returning and that's not good neither. Enemy spot you through walls and on ceiling even though they don't watch in there.
Combat sucks. You smash attack button until you have to counter. And it's hard. Even though I press counter button, it doesn't work and enemies hit me. And I'm very good in ASM 1 and Arkham games. And there's no variations. Signature moves are the same. And enemies have super speed and strength and everything. It's very frustating, since it doesn't have any variation.
Web-slinging is fun, when it's works. But too often Spidey goes inside building or suddenly changes to rotation where I'm going. And the buggy came doesn't make it better. I didn't want to wall-crawl, because camera ruins it. And since web-slinging doesn't work, I just want to walk, which is very slow.
Story is just filled with different villains. And there are too much of them. You start with Uncle Ben's killer and 15 minutes later, he's dead, you face Shocker, 15 minutes later he's beaten and it goes on.
Also, Spidey's new voice actor sucks. He tries to be funny, but isn't. And he doesn't sound like Spider-Man, at all. We had great voice actors in the past
Overall, game sucks and is huge letdown. And I didn't want it to be. ASM wasn't great, but it was okay and I thought Beenox learned it's mistakes. But it didn't.
Last good Spider-Man game was Shattered Dimensions. It had good combat, voice-acting and humor. What it didn't have was free-roaming and interesting story. I bought this game with 16 € and I'm still regretting it. If you want Spidey game with bad voice-acting, humor, combat, mediocre web-slinging, bad story and overall Arkham-clone this is it.
What we need is next-gen only Spider-Man game, with SMSD's combat and voice-actors. Maybe with 4 different New Yorks to explore?… Expand
Average User Score: 7.7Nov 3, 2013So Batman Arkham Origins is here. Is it good? Well, yes and no. As it own, it is very good game, but since most of it's owners have alsoSo Batman Arkham Origins is here. Is it good? Well, yes and no. As it own, it is very good game, but since most of it's owners have also Batman Arkham Asylum or City, it ain't that good. It's greatest weakness is that it's compared to AC.
Combat and Predator missions are back, but combat is untouchable. And that isn't good. At least what they would done is to have new special moves. But no. Sure he's moves aren't exactly same, but that doesn't make it better. Sure there are new enemy types and Shock gloves, but Shock gloves then makes new enemy types useless. And old one too. You just punch everything. Sure you have new gadgets but actually there is only 2 unique, and another one is just useless. I never used it. Another one, Remote Claw makes predator missions very easy.
Story is very good and voice actors do good job. All of them. And there are also new most wanted missions and Dark Knight challenges. Some of most wanted missions are very good, but others are just same and same. And those that are good, are short. And those that aren't are too long.
Dark Knight Challenges gives you xp and upgrades but the price: Dark Knight costume is weak. Just recolored version of default as black and his belt is yellow. I've seen better Dark Knight costume as a mod in AC. But this game gives you costumes which is good, that you won't have to buy, if you want different costumes. But some of them are hard to unlock, like Injustice.
New detective vision is great and I liked it very much. But side missions for it are just same. You found body, scan it, find killer and ask him why he do it and punch him in face.
And then Deathstroke DLC? He's just Robin reskinned with 2 special moves, since disarming is same with batman and takedown is same with robin. His attacks are 80 same with Robin. it's big disappointment. Even some of his gadgets are same with Robin. Rocksteady made 4 different characters in Arkham City. WB Montreal didn't bother to make even 1 that is different then in AC.
Multiplayer is broken at least in PS3. It has many glitches and just solid 3-person shooter. It's not that bad, but not a kind, what you will play many nights.
PS3 also had many many many glitches and bugs. It froze for me 5 times in one day. Also I'm now stuck in new game falling in endless void. It slows, crashes and other. It's like they even didn't watch those bugs at all.
After they fix this buy it, if you liked AA and AC, but don't except anything very new besides story. But with 60 price tag just think twice.… Expand

This game isn't that good like some people say. This game isn't amazing.
It's repetitive. Web-slinging isn't that good, it has glitches and it's story isn't that good. Combat is decent, it's not bad, but something more variations like Shattered Dimensions would make it awesome.
Story isn't long and not good and after first playthrough, I didn't wanna do a second. It's just boring. There are max 3 different side-mission variations. Escort prisoners, who looks the same, help people from thugs, who look the same. Black Cat side-mission was good though. Camera has issues and web-slinging gets repetitive also. And web-rush makes it too easy. Since you can use that, there's no meaning using web-sling. You can collect 700 comics, but in the console version, you don't get anything else, except a trophy. In PC, you will get 2012 Kaine's (Spider-Man's clone) Scarlet Spider suit.
Luckily, there are costumes and in the PC version you can mod them to awesome, but since it's only in PC, it doesn't make the score better. And costumes aren't that good, without modding. Raimi's black suit for example.
You can buy it if, you're Spidey fan (like me), but don't expect anything good.… Expand

But this game isn't perfect 10/10 since it hasBatman Arkham City is amazing. Everything good from Arkham Asylum is here with improvements. But this game isn't perfect 10/10 since it has some issues.
First of all, what it gets right: improved combat, new gadgets, free-roaming, side-quests, story, graphics, characters, amazing voice-acting and lots of enemies. Yeah, you should buy this game, but try Arkham Asylum first, so that you can get familiar with combat, story and predator.
But why this game isn't 10/10? Well, story isn't so good, that it was in Arkham Asylum. I can't say why without spoiling and trust me, you don't want to read spoilers of this game. Sometimes there are some glitches and other issues, but those aren't so big deal. But buy this game and probably GOTY version, so that you shouldn't buy Nightwing, HQ's Revenge, Robin, maps and skins pack separately and trust me, you want to buy those.
Rocksteady did amazing job with these and I'm waiting more of it.… Expand

1. No new weapons. Every R&C has almost every time have new interesting weapons. Now? Nope.
2. No interesting level up-ed weapons. They look almost exactly same expect have new colors. That didn't happen in previous game.
3. Story. It's 3-4 hours long and not funny. R&C have usually had funny and interesting story. And enough long. Now? Nope.
4. No open world game. Ok Quest for Booty wasn't but it had nice and funny story. And it was longer.
5. No Clank as backpack?
But this doesn't mean it's not worth buying. It has good multiplayer and cost only 20 euros. And you get free version to Vita and Ratchet Deadlocked/Gladiator to PS3 for free. So you can buy this, but don't expect anything great. For me, last Ratchet & Clank game was A Crack in Time.… Expand
