Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition Review

 

The Wii U-specific additions put a few chinks in the Caped Crusader's costume, but Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition is still a great action adventure game.

BAT combat mode makes fights less exciting

Other implementations of the Wii U's GamePad to perform certain functions are more sensible, but don't appreciably improve the experience. When Batman investigates a crime scene, for instance, you can now move the GamePad around to search for clues;...

Batman: Arkham City Reaffirms Itself as The Best Superhero Game

 

Arkham City serves as one of those sequels that renders its predecessor wholly obsolete.

Batman Arkham City - Armoured Edition

 

One of the best games of 2011 is now also on Wii U. Should it be on your launch line-up wishlist?

Fighting for the masses...

 

If you love DC and fighting games then look no further. Right up there with STREET FIGHTER and SOUL CALIBUR for pure enjoyment.

A great fighting engine, best story mode of any fighter, adicting gameplay

Button mashing can happen, roster could be better, online can be a bloodmatch
