Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition review

Comment on site articles.

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Bat-port!

Whisper it: Nintendo didn't make the best Metroid game of the last five years. It didn't even make the second best Metroid. Both honours go to Rocksteady, a plucky British studio that took the design skeleton of Samus' classic adventures and dressed it up as a giant, clown-punching bat.

I got it for xbox, and it really is one of the best games, ever. ONM seemed to be judging the port rather than the game itself and the game itself could easily been given 95%. It had the highest metacritic score on PS3 last year. It is really really good.
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

I had this for the ps3 and got the wii u version on launch day

and in my opinion the wii u version is better,purely because of the gamepad features. Everyone keeps moaning about the framerate,but I've hardly experienced any framerate issues at all.

this is not a bad port

Same here, for your whole comment! I got it from ShopTo, and used the points I earned from buying my WiiU to reduce the price to just under £20! Wii U + ShopTo = Gift that just keeps giving! The Wii U is buying games for me, haha!

I'll probably get this on the Wii U cos of the gamepad features, even though i'll miss out on trophies for the ps3 :'(
Just kidding! But I do love trophies :3

I really do encourage everyone to get this game on whatever platform suits you best. It's just such a joy to play, and the defining example of a modern triple-A title that just gets everything right.

Wouldn't say that but I understand what you're saying, also got the game, wouldn't call it a bad game but to me it's no gold award either. It's okay but it definantly has it's flaws in my opinion.

lol

It is a good game to be honest I've played both on PS3.

After I played the first game which was amazing I emailed Rock Steady to say thanks for making a great game and told them all the things I liked and things I would like to see in future Batman games.

I got a lovely email sent back plus they asked for my address and shipped me a load of goodies :wink:

Would be awesome if Nintendo snap this company up for exclusives games.

Definitely my favourite Wii U launch game.
I haven't noticed now frame-rate issues at all,the only negative I have about the game is the B.A.T,a giant waste of time in my eyes.
Still the game should've got 90% at least.

They shouldn't compare it to the other versions. The first game was great and I got this one when it first came it out.
