Summary: With the summer film earning surprisingly
good response from critics and fans alike, EA's Batman Begins for the PS2 faces
the task of recreating the more exciting sequences while not completely ignoring
the movie's somber tone. They have largely succeeded, emphasizing Batman's
stealthy characteristics and cool moves, aside from the usual flash. There are a
few action sequences, but the game maintains the feel of the film, while still
offering players a decent challenge.
Excerpt: While reviews of the film Batman Begins indicate that the caped crusader has made a turnaround of sorts on the silver screen, we can't say the same about him as a video game superhero. Yes, the new Batman Begins game from Electronic Arts and Eurocom certainly captures the fearsome new look of Batman as portrayed in the movie.
Pros: Likenesses and voices of real actors, Follows the storyline of the film
Cons: Fear mechanic too mechanical and obvious, Driving missions are dull, Campaign doesn't take long to beat
