by RADG2000 Thos is more than a lego batman game, not for kids
I love this game because the gamepad is like the batman computer
you can play and use the batcomputer at the same time.
Well the history is about the joker wants to infect all the city with titan, so first joker wants you get the cure because the joker infected him but then you'll go to the joker and he betrays you and you have to defeat
him and the joker dies and you finish the game.
GOOD GRAPHICS YOU'LL LOVE THEM.
Rated 10 out of 10 by sssssssssssssss1 Should have gotten this at launch.
I got the Wii U at launch, and for whatever reason the other game I got in addition to Super Mario Bros. was Zombie U. Then I traded it in for COD: Black Ops 2. Why did I ignore Batman: Arkham City? I don't have a good reason for that, but it doesn't matter. I traded in Destiny for this. That's right. I traded Destiny in for a game that came out more than 3 years ago. It was a good decision. In terms of Batman games, this is probably the best ever. But forget Batman games. This is one of the best games I've ever played period. You don't really have to be a fan of Batman to enjoy it, although there is a lot of fan service in the game. The best part of the game is using your grapnel and gliding around the city looking for a group of thugs to beat up or tracking down riddler trophies. Beating the game is just scratching the surface of what it has to offer, and the main game is still a good 10 hour quest. The side quests are as good (some might even be better) than the main quest, and they're totally worth playing for.

Rated 10 out of 10 by RebelReviews Arkham City best in show
Batman Arkham City is one of the best video game experiences I've had in a long time. The story is very engaging and features so many villains from the Batman universe. The combat is insanely fun and with the ability to upgrade the suit and use B.A.T. mode the fun adds on. There is a little bit of frame rate issues at times but you tend not to notice it when fighting of prisoners. The gamepad's features are cool but feel a little bit pushed. With the option to play the game on the pad itself late night fun here I come! The Wii U version is the best in my opinion because it introduces B.A.T. mode, has the ability to play the entire game on the pad, and the DLC is already installed free, plus hearing Alfred through the gamepad makes you feel like Batman. If you already own the game on a different console there is no reason to buy it but if you don't have it yet get it on the Wii U.
Rated 9 out of 10 by mojoman3 Great Game
I was originally disappointed in this game. A while back I played this game for the Xbox 360 and its one of my favorite games of all time. I wanted to play the same game just on the Wii U. So i bought a special Nyko Pro Commander controller (its a pro controller but with the Xbox controller stick and button layout). I wanted to use that controller but instead I had to use the gamepad. I was initially disappointed but when i started playing the game I started loving the new mechanics. With the gamepad as your little Bat Computer is really cool. You just look down and do everything on the gamepad without pausing. You can even play the game just on the gamepad. Overall this is a great and fun game but you have to use the Wii U as a controller.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ProphetSM Amazing
IGN rates this game right, a 9.5 out of a perfect 10. Why the reviewers rated this game a 7.5 out of a 10 is beyond me. Maybe it is because they are PS# and Xbox 360 fan-boys...or maybe it is because they are only use to Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros...This game is not for the casual gamer. It is a game for the one whom will take the time and learn the New system of the Wii U remote. For those who do, this game is a rewarding experience. The Wii U remote makes the game above the other systems, hence putting this game on a whole new level. The graphics are amazing, the game-play is smooth, and the lasting appeal keeps you coming back for more...it is very addicting. The Sound is great, however my only complaint is in the fight scenes...The insults of the prisoners becomes very annoying after hearing them say the same thing over and over again. I mean you fight 10 thugs, you have wiped the floor with 7 of them, and only three are left and they are barely standing, and one shouts out, I'm going to kill you this time. Yea right! However that is my only complaint. The cut scenes are awesome, and the game is the real deal. All I can say is sit back and enjoy!
Rated 10 out of 10 by sportman101 A great game just got better!
When Bruce Wayne gets brought in to a massive prison in the center of Gothom he learns that Hugo Strange is planning something called Protical 10. You play as Batman trying to stop Hugo and occasionally Catwoman who of course is trying to rob Hugo's safe. The fighting style mostly consists of countering with one button and and attacking with another, but the use of numurous gadgets and combos also play a factor exspecially when you are doing predator missions. This version on the Wii U allows you to unlock more upgrades than the original and lets you activate B.A.T mode which powers up your attacks for a limited time. This also comes with DLCs such as Nightwings pack, Robins pack, Harley Quin's revenge, and catwoman's story. You can also switch between playing on the Gamepad or on your TV which is really cool.
Rated 10 out of 10 by harrypottar Great use of the Game Pad
I completed this on the xbox 360, but liked it so much I purchased it again to see what the Wii U had to offer. The graphics are much better on the Wii U, sharper and better frame rate. This has all the DLC from the 360 version and was re-written for the Wii U. This is the game to get to show off what the PAD can do. The use of the pad sound is great, you hear Alfred only on the pad and other sound effects on the TV. The pad interaction is really put to great use. Highly recommend this game if you have not played it before, if you have played it before its worth a second go around on the Wii U. My hard core gaming friends thought I was mad buying the Wii u, now they ALL want one.
Rated 0 out of 10 by THEULTMATESANIN Should be on Vita rather than Wii U
Batman Arkham City was a great game i loved it I platinumed everything I love it but I don't know about i this I think it might be better on the Vita u know a good system don't get mi wrong I love Nintendo but this wii u thing dosen't look that great it looks kinda stupid actually Really this should have gone on the Vita it makes perfect sense for it rea touch pads motion sensing and the touch screen everything in the armored edition should be on Vita it better at least be on the Vita along with Wii U cuz im still waiting 4 a good batman game on Vita.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Gamersince93 The best way to play Arkham City
I know Arkham City came out last year and Rocksteady announced at last year's E3 that Arkham City will be on the Wii U. Since Arkham City launched october of last year, they decided to do something exclusive instead of a port. Batman wearing Armor with super combos.
I know its not much, but personally, i did not get Arkham City at launch, i bought the Game of the Year edition 2 months ago. I was hyped and ready to dive in, but then when i proceeded further and further, i felt like i did not want to play, something didn't feel right. I usually have to pause where i am and try to guess where my destination is. The remote controlled Batarang felt sluggish and could not get the riddler trophy, So i traded it in and did not regret it i personally though Arkham Asylum was the better batman game, i still replay it till this day. But the features i saw for the Armored Edition, i thought to myself that this might be the perfect way to play this game, a normal controller felt awkward but now with this i can relate. The biggest relief was that the controller will display the map instead of pausing every single time. The gadgets are all better with the controller, such as touch the explosive jell you want to detonate and you can control the batarang with the gyros that is inside the controller similar to the 3DS's face raiders. Also the gadgets you want to select are on the controller screen so that is a huge +
As the developers said, this edition will make you play just like the Batman.
