What's New in Version 1.2.1
Batman has scoured the game to squash bugs that plagued Arkham Origins!
One REALLY huge problem
You know, normally I like playing games that I can ACTUALLY PLAY...unlike this game, where I have to put my phone on airplane mode in order to play it...
The same thing happened to me with injustice (which I didn't delete because I've gone so far in it, not that far, but far) and I wasn't about to deal with another game like that, especially since it made me restart my progress (unlike injustice) AND take up so much memory space on my phone... In case you're wondering why I can't actually play it, each time I load it up, it goes up to the point where it says "Arkham Origins" with Batman and his villains behind him and whatnot. After that, it goes to black, then force quits. The only time that doesn't happen is when I put it on airplane mode. Which I shouldn't have to do since like injustice, it uses internet (it doesn't require it, but it is a somewhat important factor), and it prevents me from getting messages and certain notifications. Besides this VERY huge problem that REALLY needs to be fixed, it's ok. It's kinda similar to injustice, such as the controls, the energy/stamina bar, the expensive upgrades that hardly do any difference... It's not TERRIBLE, but it's not great either. There's a lot of aspects that can be changed to make it better (not including bug fixes), but it's somewhat good overall. If it weren't for how good the game was, I would give it 1 star (0, if possible).
Game is unplayable. (See actual text for why.)
Fun fact: when I tap the defend button, I expect it to defend, not wait five seconds before doing anything. It can see when I tap to hit ok, but between every mission there is this add for Mortal Kombat X. The close button for the add just does not work. It will, instead of closing the ad, open the App Store. The only way I can get it to go away is to open that page three times PER SCREEN. That adds up to 6-9 times that App Store window has to pop up, taking me out of the game PER MISSION. This makes me unwilling to get the game you are advertising, and hate the game I actually have. This game has potential. Make the block button more responsive, fix the broken ad, and it would be fine. The micro transactions aren't that distracting if you grind for a little bit. However, in the current state of the game, it is unplayable. It is the most frustrating thing to have to fight through THE SAME AD just so I can lose because he won't block the high damage attacks. That made it so difficult to write this without swearing, but in its current state, I just am completely unable to recommend it. Stay away from this game, at least on IOS.
I'll rate it five stars...but first, here's an ad
Now I don't usually wrote reviews, so when I do it means something was really really good or something was really really awful. In the case of Arkham Origins, I have to say it may be one of the most despicable games on iOS. The game itself is enjoyable, but that's only when you actually get to play it! Not only do you get to fight through the criminals of Gotham, but you also have to fight through waves and waves of ads. You won't just have to tap to defend against Deathstroke, but close ads with such pinpoint surgical accuracy that you'll most likely be spending more of your time having to close the app screen then actually play the game. I understand that a 'free' game is going to have ads but filling the entire screen with an unavoidable ad for your own games, that also charge us money in-game just to keep playing it. Just to get this straight, you want us to pay for stamina to play more of your game, which means more ads for your other games? I don't know about anyone else but I don't want to pay for ads. This may be a fun game, but it doesn't matter when you can't play it.
