Batgear is Here!,
This review is from: Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition (Video Game)
Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition captures the essence of Batman like never before.
"But hasn't this been out for a while now on other platforms?" you may ask? Why yes it has; but this time you get to utilize the Wii U Gamepad, and experience Batman in a whole new way. Although Armored Edition offers a way to armor up Batman and release bone-crushing devastation on your enemies, you can utilize the Wii U Gamepad as your digital Utility Belt and complete objectives stealthily with precision and cunning strategy. Utilizing stealth with the Wii U Gamepad is an immersive experience that puts you in the shoes of Batman, and dishing out armored martial arts when needed reminds both the player, and the villains, why it is The Dark Knight is to be feared when there is criminal intent lurking in the shadows or in the hearts of men.
If you've grown up with Batman, or managed to catch an episode involving him utilizing his Bat Gear to scope out an area with what's become known as Detective Vision, then you've probably wanted to have your very own way to track footprints and analyze suspect evidence on the go. Having the Wii U Gamepad in-hand and having to physically look around, rotating your body while utilizing the device to look around, really captures the spirit of Batman and his detective roots. Although you can't use the Wii U Gamepad to track down your estranged spouse, or find out where your kid snuck out to last night, it definitely provides a fun outlet to what was though of as a fantastic device only available to Batman...until now.
