Batman Arkham City Armored Edition review

The Batman Arkham franchise finds its way onto a Nintendo platform for the first time with Batman Arkham City Armored Edition. Find out how this installment sizes up. And please leave your thoughts in the comments.

This version of the game is exclusive to the Wii U platform. It includes all of the DLC available on other platforms as well as new gameplay elements that take advantage of the Wii U’s GamePad. It features a solid story that is backed up by a great voice cast making you engaged with every moment. And the game puts players in situations in which they must use all of Batman’s tools, including  stealth, gadgets, and combat abilities to defeat foes.

The game suffers from a few issues as there are some odd load times and screen stutters. And while there is a lot of GamePad implementation, some of it doesn’t work so well. Also, there are tons of major villains in this game, almost too many.
