Summary: Barkham up the wrong tree For most of this generation, Nintendo existed as its own entity in the market. The Wii couldn't match the technical prowess of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while third-party publishers famously struggled when attempting to bring their wares to the system.
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.

Summary: In last year's Batman: Arkham City , the Caped Crusader faced one of the greatest adventures yet in his legendary career. Now, that game has made its way onto the Wii U as Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition.
Pros: Atmospheric, fascinating world rich with details and secrets, Satisfying, varied, hard-hitting combat, Grappling and soaring around the city is thrilling, Great assortment of involving side quests, Includes all the downloadable content from earlier releases
Cons: B.A.T. combat mode makes fights less exciting
Summary: I certainly cannot recommend someone who already owns the game or has beaten it to buy the Armored Edition, but Nintendo fans who lacked a version of their own until now should feel compelled to try out this game now.
Excerpt: Batman: Arkham Asylum raised the bar for comic books-based games and developer Rocksteady improved on that formula immensely with last year’s Batman: Arkham City for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Pros: Outstanding gameplay still holds up, Sporadically creative uses of the GamePad, One of the better Wii U launch ports
Cons: Most GamePad features are unneeded, Batman and Catwoman have silly new armor, Not the best version of the game
