Summary: Complemented by hilariously sharp writing and an engaging cartoon visual style, Batman: The Brave and the Bold - The Videogame isn't especially challenging, but it is as charming as a tuxedoed Bruce Wayne.

Pros: Lots of jokes during both cutscenes and gameplay, Striking artistic style, Seamless co-op integration, Good gameplay diversity
Excerpt: Sometimes a game based on a movie or TV license will end up being a pleasant surprise. In fact, a rare few actually turn out better than most non-licensed games. Batman: The Brave And The Bold very much falls into this category.
