Arkham City: Armored Edition contains all of the same content as the Game of the Year (GOTY) editions for PS3 and Xbox360 plus a little extra. It includes not only the base Arkham City game, but all of the extra DLC that was released for it including the Catwoman missions, the Riddler's Revenge challenges, the Harley missions, and everything else. In addition to all the features you'll find in the GOTY editions it includes a few Wii U enhancements.
"Armored Edition" means Batman and Catwoman have special armor that isn't available in the other editions of the game. This armor comes with an ability to activate it and go into "BAT" mode after you've absorbed enough kinetic energy. In this mode, you'll move faster and hit harder for a short period of time. It's activated with a button on the gamepad screen, which is conveniently located in the top-left corner.
The utilization of the gamepad screen is a major addition to the game that is not available in other versions. It acts as the menu system for the game, an interactive map with waypoint ability and sonar capabilities, and in a number of different ways based on the tools being used. It's a great way of utilizing the second screen, and a big improvement.
This version does experience some slowdown when encountering large fights with a large number of enemies in the open world. Other than that, the performance is quite good.
Highly recommended if you've never played this game before!Read more ›
It is a little violent as some reviewers complained about and they say "Bi#$*". So keep that in mind if you are getting it for your kids. It is rated T for teen so just be aware.
The story includes so many famous villains from Batman's history, and the plot is picking up nicely so far. The RPG elements are welcomed. Earning experience from fighting enemies and leveling up gadgets and combat skills is implemented perfectly. The Gamepad is used to an impressive extent since it's a port from the other two systems. The map and menu functions are very helpful, and using the scan mode when performing detective work is really cool since you see the area through the Gamepad; it's as if you are literally standing in the room or area as Batman.
The more I play the game the more I enjoy it. I'm so glad they brought the game to the Wii U as a launch title so Nintendo fans can enjoy this gem.
I purchased it specifically for the Wii-U because I like the Pad's integration in games. Spiderman, Lego City Undercover, it adds a nice touch. And here, as well, it adds to it. Like Lego City Undercover, when you're talking to someone via radio, you hear them on the speakers of the pad. However, this was my first strike on the game - when you turn OFF the sound on the pad (such as when you're playing after kids are in bed using headphones) then it does *NOT* automatically put the sound through the normal output with the rest of the things so you can hear it on the headphones. That was one thing I got used to on Lego City, that if I turned off the volume on the pad, the radio conversations would play both sides over the headphones then. Not this one. And I had several instances where even with the pad volume on, I'd only hear one side of the conversation, it would glitch the other. And sometimes it was the main character's voice missing, not the one that would've played on the pad anyway.
There are a lot of combo moves. If you're not a fan of having to memorize a ton of button combinations for one game, then pass this one. But that being said, you can survive just doing the basics.
