Summary: 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. As a result, the Wii's library remained anomalous and, to the eyes of some gamers, less than special.
Review: Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition (Nintendo Wii U)
29 January 2013
Summary: Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition may be twenty dollars more than the GOTY Edition for the PS3 and 360, but it’s the version I would definitely recommend to people who still haven’t picked up some version of this award winning title. The graphics are a little weaker than in other versions, but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Good-bye pause screens and hello to a more real-time immersive experience.
Combative Dark Knight game has some blood and death.

Summary: Parents need to know Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is a darker and more violent side to Batman. He inflicts pain on enemies with kicks, punches, acrobatic moves, melee and range weapon, and gadgets; and if Batman fails to save innocent civilians, they could die. Along with violence and a bit of blood, the game also has some sexual references and suggestive imagery, profanity, and some references to alcohol and smoking.
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. The new touches added here don't contribute much to the experience, and occasionally risk interfering with it, so there's no reason to buy this version if you have access to others.
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
