Incorrectly Titled - This is not Volume 3,
This review is from: Batman - The Animated Series: Volume 3 - Out Of The Shadows [DVD]  (DVD)
Amazon.co.uk has mistakenly listed this as Volume 3 of the Batman The Animated Series boxed set. This is not Vol.3. The title on the box is "Batman The Animated Series: Out Of The Shadows 4 Thrilling Episodes!" It is merely a random sampling of 4 episodes from the entire series.
If you are looking for Volume 3, Amazon.com, the American website, lists all four volumes correctly.

Amazon combine product reviews. All it takes is to read a review for the wrong regions product and click back accidentally into the page for the lesser UK volume 3. I've read many an irate comment/review/discussions on the matter. You have to be careful.
I posted this elsewhere.
Within the Film & TV category a good search term would have been: batman volume 3 import
Import was the most important word there.
Alternatively, pop across to the American site amazon.com, select Movies & TV and type: batman the animated series dvd
In the results list you would find:
Batman: The Animated Series, Volume Three (DC Comics Classic Collection) (2005)
Product ASIN: B0007XG43W
B0007XG43W can be used as a search term at any amazon site. If a page exists for that edition of the product it will give you the desired result.
BTW at the time of writing, Friday 02 August 2013, it is cheaper to buy directly from amazon.com - it is quite handy that customer login details [email address & password] can be used at international amazon sites as well. Credit card info is also on file.
If the order total exceeds £15.00 you may be subject to UK customs and/or clearance fees/charges. I usually pay the middle postage rate at amazon.com checkout - Expedited International Shipping. The Import Fees deposit I pay there is cheaper than letting Parcel Force/Royal Mail add it on at this end. Plus there are fewer delays. Delivery averages 8 days after dispatch, which is pretty good and the item is tracked all the way to your door [presumably your signature upon delivery/arrival].
Batman: The Animated Series Volume 3
Batman: Animated Series 3 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Batman: The Animated Series Volume 4 [from The New Batman/Superman Adventures, AKA the Batman: Gotham Knights episodes]
Batman: Animated Series 4 [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Batman & Mr Freeze: Subzero (1998) The Movie -
Batman & Mr Freeze: Subzero [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
NOTES: 2005 reissued DVD. Film made in 1997. The Batman & Robin live action movie underperformed at the US box-office so release was delayed until the following year to distance the two. Animation style matches Batman: The Animated Series/The Adventures of Batman & Robin NOT the New Batman Adventures.
A list of Region 2 compatible WHV USA DC Comics DVDs can be found here:
Please do some research if you are not convinced you can play the discs.
Importing DVDs/BDs is always risky unless you have a multi-region player, recorder or drive.
I take no personal responsibility for the choices of others.
My list/research was created as a informative guide but I cannot be held accountable should someone order the wrong edition of a particular title.
I only know what works on R2 players within my own collection.
