Summary: Parents need to know that Batman: The Brave and the Bold is a fast-paced, action-filled video game based on the animated series of the same name. Like the cartoon, it contains a good deal of fantasy violence, but nothing too graphic. This is a far more kid-friendly version of Batman than we've seen in years. Also like the cartoon, humor is a big presence.

Excerpt: Batman: The Brave and the Bold is a 2D beat-'em-up game developed for the Wii by WayForward Studios, and is based on the Cartoon Network show of the same name. Just as with the TV show, the game is divided into episodes in which Batman takes on the lead role as he teams up with other DC Universe characters to frustrate a villain’s plans. The game is broken down into four episodes, with eight scenes in each.
Conclusion: The Brave And The Bold brings a bit of classic, side-scrolling twock-‘em-up action to Wii It’s a good-looking and well-made game, fun alone but a lot more fun with a friend. There is no real reason for it to remain Wii-exclusive, though.
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: Fantastic, genuinely funny writing, Visuals match the Cartoon Network series, Fast, fun combat
Cons: Not challenging enough for more seasoned gamers, Campaign is a bit short
Excerpt: As if the Batman media juggernaut wasn’t already strong enough with critically and commercially successful comics, movies, and television shows, you can now add video games into the mix. With the more mature hit Batman: Arkham Asylum receiving a sequel on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year, this year Warner Bros. Interactive turned their attention to the Nintendo Wii.

Excerpt: It's difficult to come up with a fault for Batman, but he does have one noticeable chink in his armor: he's not funny. His utility belt has a knack for supplying the perfect gadget to save him from imminent danger, but a batarang isn't much help in coming up with a knock-knock joke. Thankfully, Batman doesn't have to worry about stand-up material in his latest adventure.
Pros: Lots of jokes during both cutscenes and gameplay, Striking artistic style, Seamless co-op integration, Good gameplay diversity
Batman: The Brave and the Bold – The Videogame (Wii) Review
8 September 2010
Excerpt: The Batman franchise is a bit all over the place now, and not really in a bad way either. On one hand, we’ve had the rather over the top cheesy films released throughout the early nineties. On the other, we’ve got the comics and the cartoon series still running quite strong. Then, we had a bit of a shift from the over the top kind of villains to a darker and artistic interpretation of the now famous Dark Knight.
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.
Excerpt: De game Batman the Brave and the Bold is gebaseerd op de gelijknamige, sinds 2008 lopende, animatieserie. De stijl van de game komt perfect overeen met die van de serie. Dit is dan ook doorgevoerd in het titelscherm en de menu’s. Hierdoor krijgt de game een authentiek sfeertje wat zeker bijdraagt aan de gehele spelervaring. Het deed denken aan de oudere Megaman games met duidelijke kleuren en grote vlakken.
