  • Excerpt: Platform: Xbox, PS2, GC, PC, GBA ESRB Rating: T for Teen (Violence) Players: 1-2 Overview Back in September of 1975, the Starsky & Hutch TV pilot first aired. The show quickly became a success, and ran for 4 seasons. In recent years, attempts have been made to revive the classic in the form of DVD?s, a movie, and of course, a video game. Gameplay The game plays out like a pretty standard mission-based driving game - chase a car and shoot it before the time runs out.

Starsky & Hutch Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: While there is a resurgence of 70’s television culture nowadays, when compared with present day crime dramas, Starsky & Hutch just can’t measure up. Unfortunately, this happens to be the same fate of the videogame as well. While the gameplay is the best part of this game, it still ends up being average at best.

  • Summary: Based on the hit 70's television show, Starksy & Hutch allows players to ride with the two crime fighters in their famous red and white car. Starksy mixes driving and shooting action in some unique ways that make for clever game mechanics that supports co-operative play using driving controllers and light guns. The scoring system is based on viewer ratings and gives the game a unique personality.

  • Conclusion: afros and, more often than not, plenty of doomed cardboard boxes. And that pretty much sums up Empire Interactive's new title, Starsky & Hutch for Xbox and PS2. It's a fun game with a funky soundtrack, and it goes where few titles fear to tread -- successfully pulling off a campy sense of humor.

  • Excerpt: It has been far too long since a game that had the pretension to adorn the infamous name of 'Batman' was true to the franchise's legacy. I find it hard to believe that any iteration of the game, short of the original N.E.S. version is worth its weight in bat-feed. Nevertheless, we must keep an open mind my fellow bat-friends, what with the introduction of such radically improved videogame hardware and all. So does Batman: Vengeance live up to the legendary legacy?

Batman: Vengeance

DarkStation
19 October 2001
  • Conclusion: Overall, Batman: Vengeance is an OK game that arrived at the wrong time. There’s just too many other great games this month to recommend this, even to someone who likes the show or Batman in general. You should buy this game if you love Batman, but you should not buy this game if you want something worth 50 dollars. The choice is yours.

22 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Besonders Fans der mittlerweile in die Jahre gekommenen Serie sollten sich dieses Spiel mal näher anschauen. Vor allem auf Grund der einfachen Tatsache, dass Empire Interactive sich nicht einfach nur einen klangvollen Namen gesichert hat und ein herzloses Game produziert hat, sondern tatsächlich ein der Serie möglichst nahe kommendes Spiel geschaffen hat.

  • Conclusion: Trop brutal, sans innovation, Starsky & Hutch n'arrive pas à se démarquer assez de ses références pour ne pas souffrir de la comparaison. Le résultat : un jeu malheureusement sans saveur, malgré une licence qui se prêtait au jeu.
  • Pros: Une ville bien modélisée, Générique, persos secondaires de la série, Bonne Bande-Son, Un mode 2 joueurs
  • Cons: Jeu répétitif, Monotonie des objectifs, Pas de fun, Doublages moyens et scènes vidéo en plans figés
