No thanks

Don't see the point of purchasing this again if all it brings is looking at your gadgets on a small screen.

Maybe it has a U in it because that's how it's spelled?

I held off on Arkham City, so maybe I'll pick it up on Wii U.

Doesn't look as good as the PC version.

the one guy who still only gets nintendo consoles is crazy excited that he can play this now.

It's just not that impressive. I actually haven't played Arkham City to completion yet, but this still isn't doing anything for me. Also, the tv screen changes to what you're seeing on the Wii-U screen? Is that right? because it looks like that defeats the purpose of having another screen entirely.

Yep, that's Batman alright.

It doesn't seem like there's much of a difference beyond the armor and gadgetry display HUD.

After the awful job Rocksteady did with the PC port, I will never buy another game from them, ESPECIALLY for the Wii U

Looks interesting. But enough to get me to buy Arkham City again? Probably not.

Nice but I already got it.

Ah. So Nintendo trapped a guy in a room so they'd have at least one person who hasn't played Arkham City...

Arkham City was a great game, and I'm glad more people have the chance to play it. But.... most people have already played it. It's old news. It coming to the WiiU is a bulletpoint, not a highlight.

The amount of times the narrator says "new controller" is almost hypnotic

I was pretty disappointed in this game. I was hoping for a better atmosphere, like I saw in Asylum, and the story just didn't engage me at all. This definitely won't change my mind, but some of it is neat anyways.

This trailer made me lose interest in a game I've already beaten and love

the giant bomb community is like an echo chamber. why even bother leaving a comment if you're just going to repeat what someone else has already said? anyway, i don't know the specifics of the wii u, but this is a far more inspired implementation of a peripheral, specifically when it comes to menu navigation.

When will Nintendo figure out that their fancy boxes full of sensors are no good without any compelling software? The Wii U is an android tablet in a market place full of ipads.

B. A. T. mode? What? Why?

Posted by addictedtopinescent

Switching between screens and having to use a tablet for gadgets maps etc looks useless at best.

Anyway, it is cool that people who only own/buy Nintendo consoles can play this game.

Rocksteady doesn't work on the Wii U game, good for you or something.

Armor and the new meter, nothing else is new, awesome.

Posted by spaghettitime

Sure, I get what you guys are saying: All they really did was add the ability to tap on a screen to switch between gadgets and throw in a few other last minute gimmicks.

But then again, would you really want them to fundamentally change anything in a game this good? I didn't hear anybody complaining that you couldn't shout "I'M BATMAN" at your Kinect in order to punch thugs on the 360 version.

The Wii U: Nintendo's most British console yet.

Why isn't this called Arkham City U? That would be the best party university in the country.

You, sir, have no idea what you're talking about. With the exception of the GFWL, both Arkham Asylum and City are some of the best PC ports around. The support for Surround displays and 3D was superb and all in it was a fantastic job. You should be ashamed of yourself for spouting such nonsense.
