More DetailsLess Details
Batman: Arkham City is based on DC Comics' core Batman license and is set in Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City's most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others, the game allows players to genuinely experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight delivering justice on the streets of Gotham City.
Battle Armored Tech Mode (B.A.T. Mode) – A new upgraded battle suit for both Batman and Catwoman gives players an additional power-up by allowing them to build up kinetic energy during combat. When activated, Batman enters B.A.T. mode, whereby he doles out more damage and has a heighted sense of enemy locations.
Wii U New Controller Functionality – The new controller's touch screen allows players to truly be The World's Greatest Detective with the newly designed, wrist-mounted Batcomputer. Players can select their gadget, track evidence, upgrade their gear, set and detonate explosive gel, and more, all without ever leaving the game.
Reimagined Gadgets – All gadgets have been reimagined to utilize the power of the new controller. For example, players can now use the new Sonar mode that enables Batman to quickly probe his surroundings to develop the tactics needed for success. Players can then select, customize and equip their preferred gadget loadout, as well as access a real-time map of Gotham without ever leaving the action of the game. The new controller also allows for an unprecedented level of accuracy when using the Batarang and scanning for clues.
Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition Content – Included on disc are all previously released downloadable content: Harley Quinn's Revenge Pack, Catwoman Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Challenge Map Pack and Arkham City Skins Pack.

Game Wouldn't Work!I ordered the game online, but it wouldn't work. I exchanged it at my local GameStop, but their copy didn't work either! I had to travel to FIVE different Gamestops in my area to get a working copy of this game. Ridiculous!

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.

Great GameI 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.

Arkham City best in showBatman 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.
