So... This game wasn't really on my radar since it lacked multiplayer and was farmed out to Human Head studios.... but by some bizarre twist, it seems that the Wii U version is the definitive one - even beating the PC version in some cases.

According to NeoGAF (who are usually extremely hard on Nintendo so any praise from there is notable), the Wii U version has:

Quote :

Best framerate on consoles. They all have some frame drops but Wii U seems to have the least. Overall it seems to be Wii U > 360 >>>>>>>>>>>PS3 in this regard.

No screentearing on Wii U.

Better lighting on Wii U compared to PS3/360.

All versions have glitches, including game breaking bugs but Wii U has less glitches than 360, PS3, or even PC with apparently no game breakers present. Including being able to actually do the Burnley tower correctly.

Plus Off TV Play.
Plus Map on the GamePad.
Plus Achievements Posting on Miiverse.
Minus Multiplayer.
$10 less.
It does lack multiplayer, but according to reviewers, the multiplayer sucks and consists of just 4 maps. And the Wii U version is cheaper to compensate.

Wii U getting definitive versions of mature games... console being praised by the media... What is going on? Am I in the twilight zone?

This isn't a game that's on my personal radar, but it's good to see that Wii U owners aren't the ones getting shafted for a change.

Pleased about this especially seeing I've got to wait to the 8th to get it.

That's great news, especially given how this port was handled by an external team, Humanhead Studios (which I thought was puzzling given the lead developers were the ones behind Arkham City Wii U).

I wonder whether this is down to developer ingenuity, better dev kits, or both.

This has been getting very mixed reviews; Destructoid gave it a 3.5. Meh

That's pretty cool to hear, especially as I was going to pick it up on Wii u anyway. Shame it probably won't translate to sales...

I have this on ps3 & while its good ye can't help but feel its treading over the same ground as AC & the map (hopefully this changes later in the game) is just like AC too albeit with slightly cosmetic & texture changes. :/

I also had a bad case of framerate skippage when heading to the courthouse, it was so low it was nigh on impossible to play & for all the noise made about similar things with AC port on wii U I never experienced nothing like I did on Origins tonight.

Judging from what I've heard, prepare to be disappointed...

Yeah I also have this on PS3 and have the same problems as Jaster..

And I'm not really getting into this, I'm really tempted to trade it in and go get Assassin Pirates and maybe give it a go later on when it's cheaper

Don't get me wrong I've still had fun playing it, the fight with deathstroke being a highlight & yep I've now heard that only the south part of the map is new. (& to think folk were worried about it being too big for batman game)

It screams cash-grab to me. Recycled map, little changed in the combat system... disappointing.

I've already done that as like I said I didn't really get into it, even Deathstroke and Bane did nothing for me, so now I'm going to kill and be a pirate

So, not that many people bought it, but it seems there are bizarre problems with the packaging of this game.

White Wii case instead of blue Wii U case
Wii (!) Health & Safety booklet included
No Club Nintendo code in the box.
New copy, shrinkwrapped, came with the pre-order DLC, sticker on the shrinkwrap)

Anyone else experienced this, or was he just unlucky? He ordered it from The Hut.

I've seen white boxed copies in HMV, although I just assumed it was a display case.

Mine came in a white box but I didn't notice until mas pointed it out. Apparently, they all were.

My brother just got Blackgate on 3DS which didn't include a code for stars either.
