Batman: Arkham City—Armored Edition Review | EGM

Ray Carsillo: Although the core of Batman: Arkham City remains intact, new glitches and tacked-on gimmicks take away from the overall experience enough to make this a clearly inferior version of one of the great games of this generation.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's always a shame when features that don't have to be used are used in a way that's detrimental to the game.

bubblebeam1284d ago

Agreed. It's because they feel the need to justify their tech. Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony are all guilty of this unfortunately. They should leave the gimmicks for casual games, and not try to force them into, well, the opposite of casual games I guess lol.

I'm hoping for a update patch soon to fix this.

Assassins creed 3,borderlands 2, skyrim and black ops 2 are all glitchy and even contained lots of gamebreaking bugs when released. They all scored high and sold millions with few complaints on the reviews about glitches. What changed that made everyone care so much more?

you know how it is with game reviewers and their inconsistencies. The difference is that now the hype for those games has already died down....

I suppose if you ignore the entire rest of the review, this comment would make perfect sense, but the reviewer is citing poorly done new features, mostly.

lilbroRx1284d ago

This review seem to carry a sentiment of resentment straight from the beginning. The reviewer is undeniably biased towards the HD twins.

He hates the changes for being different.

"THE UGLY: How the game looks if you play exclusively on the Wii U controller." Please tell me what about this analysis sounds like they like he thinks anything positive about the Wii U?

He hates on the B.A.T. Mode(the new power up) for being a power up. He thinks it makes the game to easy.

Then he hates on the Upad minimap and inventory for making being what it is, a method of changing and enhancing without interrupting the game. He says it makes it to difficult.

He hates anything that is not the same as it is on the PS3/360. The people who like this review are probably people who never intended to get a Wii U or the Wii U version of this game to begin with.

SilentNegotiator1284d ago

Jim Sterling's review said the similar things about the interface. And his "Wii U Review" absolutely tries to say positive things about the potential on such features when done right.

So blaming some supposed fear of change is simply wrong.

EGM call this inferior version and IGN call this definitive version. interesting...
