An excellent balance of puzzles, action, and style

Summary: Batman: Vengeance looks just like the cartoon, including the voice actors and designs. This game takes place after the cancellation of the Batman cartoon series. That's the latest incarnation -- not the original series, but the slimmer, darker version of Batman that incorporated designs from the movie. For those of you who didn't follow along, Batman lost Robin and only had Batgirl as a sidekick. Batman: Vengeance, starts out right.

Summary: What a great, immersive game. Challenging levels, lots of gadgets, batmobile and batplane levels - I love it. Like Spiderman for the PS1, you are one with the large environments presented in this game. Each area has a distinctive look in tandem with the enemy you are chasing. Button mashing is effective when taking on the henchmen of each level, but some super-moves add to the mix.
Summary: This game is great for any fan of Batman. The graphics are impressive, the animations are original and the story is great. At times you feel like you are actually watching the Batman animated series. The voiceovers are all original. (Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill etc.) The soundtrack is also impressive. The only shortcomming of the game is that the gameplay lacks a little bit, but the story and graphics make up for it.
Summary: I, being the nerdy Batman fan I am, was of course drawn to this game, allured by the ability to roam Gotham City and use all his cool gadgets. But I was sadly mistaken. First off, you can't simply "roam around Gotham," like how you can roam Liberty City in GTA III. The levels play more like an obstical course, negaiting the use of the 3-d graphics.
Summary: I really looked forward for this title. I love batman always have and always will. The game has the same actors as in the show. That is a plus right there, but that's all. I'm really sorry about that everything else is so really bad. You will not be given the freedom to control batman like you thought you would. The environment to move around in and interact with is so controlled. It gave the feeling of really not being there.
Batman Has "Vegeance" on poor imitation Superhero games.

Summary: Over the years I have seen The Bat appear in several different formats of Video games- but speaking from experience, this has got to be the finest Batman game ever produced. From the sweeping detail of the Animation, to the voices of the actors from the animated series, to the Danny Elfman inspired Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, and, most importantly, a storyline that could have come straight from an animated episode- this game has it all. And don't forgat the Gadgets!
