The lights are on
What new ideas the game brings to the table and how well old ideas are presented.
How good a game looks, taking into account any flaws such as bad collision or pop-up.
Does the game’s music and sound effects get you involved or do they make you resolve to always play with the volume down?
Basically, the controller to human interface. The less you think about the hunk of plastic in your hands, the better the playability.
Flat out, just how fun the game is to play. The most important factor in rating a game.
Batman: Arkham Origins is just two days away. A young Dark Knight is hunted by Black Mask and his hired assassins on Christmas Eve, but justice never sleeps (or drinks egg nog).
Batman must hunt down the crime boss and, along the way, deal with the likes of Deathstroke, Deadshot, Bane, and more. This Batman is more brutal and less refined than the Dark Knight of Arkham Origins and Arkham City, and he's clearly done something to earn the contempt of Gotham's most sinister mobster.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be out on Friday for Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For more, check out 17 minutes of gameplay and read a recent preview of our fight with Deathstroke.

Well I'll say that was pretty damn cool. I can't wait till Friday.
Interesting that they show Sionis without his mask when he's face to face with Batman.
I am all sorts of jacked for this game. Come on Friday, get here sooner!!!
Batman, you... are the man
And for those of you doubtful of the MP, you can look up beta footage online -- it's balanced and very impressive.
What a great trailer, can't wait to pick this up Friday after work.. Too bad I'm not enough, I've already reserved days off for PS4 launch!!
Okay, that trailer officially changed my mind. Pre-ordering at gamestop right now
When will the review be up? Just wondering.
Getting this on Friday for PS3, but I swear if it drops on PS4 I will GET again!!!! Cant wait!
