Conclusion: Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu did a lot of things right; it is a visually stunning game that truly captures the feeling of the show. Unfortunately, the gameplay quickly grows tiring and stale. For hardcore fans of the Batman universe, this game is a worth looking into. It definitely captures the feeling of the show and it provides a new Batman story for fans to enjoy. For the casual gamer, the few unlockables aren’t enough to warrant another run though the repetitive gameplay.
Excerpt: If there’s a universal constant in gaming it’s that superhero games are universally bad. Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu (BRST) can at moments be enjoyable enough that you may see the beginnings of a glimmer of hope that it will buck the longstanding superhero curse. Unfortunately, you’ll soon find that BRST is just another disappointing Batman game.
Excerpt: Once again, to the batcave Batman! In his third appearance on the Xbox, it seems that Ubisoft is able to put us in the right scenarios to create a fun Batman experience. Their first game Batman Vengeance was enjoyable but it was far from being a perfect Batman licensed title. Now their new title, Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu, is their latest creation of the dark and moody world of Batman.
Excerpt: Although his status as a SUPER hero is up for debate, Batman is still one of the coolest characters in the DC universe. However, much like his movie career, the Dark Knight hasn't really made much of a splash in the game world. First there was Batman: Vengeance , which was decent but overly frustrating in nearly every aspect of gameplay; then there was Batman: Dark Tomorrow , which made dentist visits seem like a trip to Disneyland.
Excerpt: Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu is something of a milestone for fans of the super hero; it marks the first time a Batman character makes his debut in a videogame, as Ubi Soft gives fans some beat-˜em up action Batman style. But while the Dark Knight fares well against the villain Sin Tzu, he gets a serious beatdown from the arch-nemesis of all videogame comic heroes: The super-villain known as Monotonous Gameplay.

Summary: We are massive Castlevania fans at Gamestyle so any release of a new game is treated with the excitement you would normally associate with some kind of red carpet premier. That said, we have been looking for something new in the franchise of late. We knew Mercury Steam’s take would be a little different but it was with hesitation that we ventured forth into Dracula’s castle once more.
Conclusion: Holy budget brilliance Batman! At only $49.95, Batman: The Rise of Sin Tzu is a great game for one or two players, and represents an excellent cheap investment. Unlike many economy priced games, it is obvious that a great deal of love and care went into the making of this Batman title, and it despite a few niggling shortcomings, does much to redeem the franchise game-wise.
Pros: awesome boss battles!, plenty of moves and goodies, co-operative play!, rockin' soundtrack
Cons: it's a repetitive button mash, some missions too hard, one-liner's loop way too much, no drivable Batmobile!
Conclusion: Sunzis "Die Kunst des Krieges" ist ein Buch für Menschen, die gerne denken. Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu ist hingegen ein Spiel für Leute, die das Denken bereits verlernt haben. Drücken wir die Daumen, dass eines Tages für Batman-Fans noch einmal bessere Zeiten anechen. Die Filmlizenzen zu Catwoman und Batman 5 kommen garantiert...
