If you’ve played the franchise before, you know how awesome Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition is before even playing it. Right off the bat it earns roughly 3,000 points! The gameplay is as fluid and satisfying as on the other consoles, but what this version has that the others do not is the ability to utilize the pad to maneuver through rooms using sonar, to choose gadgets, and a whack of other useful abilities.

One thing I did notice, however, was that, as Eli mentioned before, the graphics on the screen weren’t as sharp as its Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts. Not that the graphics aren’t good, they’re quite decent, but they’re just not as crisp as they could be. On the other hand, the graphics are impressively sharp on the pad. Having such quality visuals on a controller is really remarkable!

I only played the game for a few minutes at the event, but from what I got to see and tap, aside from the slight graphical upset, this game has the right elements to be pretty damn good.
