Finished: Batman Arkham Origins

An interesting third part to the Batman Arkham series, unfortunately it lacks the charm and interest of the first two games. It would have been more interesting to see the rise and origins of the various baddies of the series rather than just the Joker.

The combat is excellent as you would expect from a Batman game, the ability to flow together combos is something that never gets old and there is a healthy array of gadgets to help you.

The game has plenty of content and kept me going for around 30 hours. Unfortunately there were a couple of bugs that impacted the gameplay such as enemies becoming far too intimate with walls and various prompts not being displayed when they should have been.

Overall it’s a solid game in an excellent series.

Finished: Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising

I actually preferred the base game over chaos rising, the Tyranids provide a real exciting and credible threat whereas the Chaos Space Marines come off as cartoonish and arrogant.

The overall length of the game was short and the character progression stops too soon, meaning that your main squads reach maximum level half way through the game!

The boss fights are basically bullet sponges with some annoying area of effect attacks.

Over all – stick to Dawn of War 2.
