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: To get started, I'll come out and say I'm NOT a big Batman fan. As a little kid, I did, however, watch the show pretty much every time it was on and enjoyed it. Now, I'm guessing about 6 years later, my interests have completely changed. And, yes, my favorite superhero is now Spider-Man :). But, having the love of action/RPG/Adventure games, I added this to my Christmas list, and, sure enough, I recieved it. The levels can be complex; some more than others.
Summary: This is one of those games that chances are the average consumer will rent. To be truthful as well unless you like the animated series as well you probably will pass this off as another action adventure game. TO be truthful, it is. The idea behind this is that they take 4 original episodes and try to make a game with at least 3 action levels and 1 training.
Summary: "Batman: Vengeance" has got to be one of the best Batman games ever made, with the only contender being "Batman & Robin" for the SNES. In the game, you control the Bat through 5 extremely large and immersive episodes, each with their own villain just itching for Bats to lay the smack down on 'em.
Holy Spider-Man, Batman! My Bat-Sense Is Tingling!

Summary: I've been a video game player for years. More years than I'd like to admit. I've been a comic book reader for years. More years than I'd like to admit. And, so, when I saw the preview pictures for this new Batman game I nearly wet my pants with joy. "My God," I said. "It looks just like the cartoon!" I had to have it. It was love at first sight, but I was leery because the last Batman game (Batman Beyond) stunk up the video gaming world.
Summary: As cool as the PS2 is, ive had a difficult time finding games that keep me hooked. The EA sports games always rule, but ive had a hard time with the action/adventure games.....that changed with Batman: vengence.....first of all, im a total comic geek, so i was attracted to this game for obvious reasons, however the gameplay is so awesome. You are the dark knight, and you have all of his weapons/gadgets at your disposal.
Summary: This game only takes five hours to beat at the most. The villians are cool but the trenchmen are pretty much all the same. Most of the weapons can only be picked up in certain leves. Overal I think it is a little short but really fun.
Summary: This game does an excellent job delivering a taste of the batman mythos, especially through the styllized lens of the cartoon series. It's definitely not the best action game out right now for the PS2 (but then it's up against the dual demigods Devil May Cry and Metal Gear Solid 2) but it's worth a look if you're an action fan or a batman fan.
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.
