Product Description

Product Description

In Batman: Vengeance, the gritty underworld of Gotham ignites as Batman becomes the target of a nerve-rattling conspiracy. After the Joker plummets to his death in an attempt to kill Batman, Gotham's criminals quickly escalate their schemes to gain power. Batman discovers subtle links in these seemingly unrelated crimes, but is forced undercover after being framed for an attack on Commissioner Gordon. Hunted by the police, the Dark Knight must pinpoint the unseen enemy weaving this sinister web before Gotham City falls to a fiery demise. Batman: Vengeance introduces the most versatile 3-D Batman game yet, with more than 500 animated movements, special fighting moves, and a multifunctional cape with its own AI. For the first time, players can journey through a fully rendered 3-D Gotham City with Batman's sleek weapons and devices at their fingertips, including the BatGrapple, BatScope, Batarang, BatLauncher, flash bombs, and more. There is a huge array of gameplay modes: exploring, fighting, first-person shooter, driving, flying, freefall, and puzzles.

The Gotham City environment, reconstructed in full 3-D, contains 19 playable maps, including the rooftops, Gotham Industrial Research, and the Batcave. There are also more than 40 minutes of cinematics featuring the original voice cast of TV's The New Batman Adventures. The game's original story line was written in collaboration between Warner Brothers and DC Comics from the files of The New Batman Adventures. The Dolby Surround 5.1 Sound soundtrack features original music inspired by the television series.

Amazon.co.uk Review

There must have been more lame Batman games created in the last decade than there are tights-wearing felons in Gotham City, but thankfully Batman: Vengeance hits the Bat-target with the proverbial golden Batarang. Because the game is based on The New Batman Adventures (a version of the animated Batman series which has never been seen in the UK--except as a part of The Batman And Superman Movie), the visuals are 3-D versions of the cartoon's very stylised designs. This can sometimes cause the backdrops to be rather lacking in detail but generally it's an interesting and unusual look.

The gameplay is perhaps most similar to a more focused version of Soul Reaver, with plenty of Batgadgets to play with, and even a little bit of Metal Gear-esque sneaking around required. There's also an excellent 3-D combat system and a bunch of driving and puzzle sub-games of varying quality.

A few obvious niggles do manage to get under your tights, such as the oversensitive controls, the intrusive loading times and the often frustratingly obscure level designs, but the joy of being Batman and flinging exploding gas balls at everyone manages to overcome. In the video games world Spider-Man still rules the superhero roost, but this is easily the best Batgame yet seen. --David Jenkins

I managed to get a copy of Batman from the states this morning and so far I have spent all day on it!
Batman Vengeance looks like a re-creation of the animated TV series in a videogame.
It won't break any molds, but it's a good arcade game.
You begin by training in the Bat Cave and work out the mysterious details of the game's first set of clues.
The Joker is the first bad guy to appear, and it is he who sets up Batman to start with. its got all the characters here including Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Harley Queen, too.
The game itself is a compilation of arcade-like gameplay styles that relies on a third-person perspective camera angle to show Batman in his basic mode. He can walk, run and jump,as well as use a dozen or so bat gadgets to complement his mad martial arts. I have managed to drive the Batmobile and although I haven`t reached it yet you can fly the Batplane on the later stages.
There are many items and gadgets to collect including Flashbombs, batcuffs, batarangs,remote Electric Charges,batgrapple,nets and the Bat Launcher.
Batman is controlled in two ways, in the third-person perspective that's occasionally altered with cut animated scenes, sort of like in Resident Evil or Onimushi, but also in the first-person mode. The problem I`m finding with this is that you can't get to every one of Batman's moves and gadgets and fight at the same time. In first-person mode they can explore and use gadgets freely, but they can't do things like open doors, or punch and kick. Then in third-person perspective, players can open doors, jump, walk, fight and kick, but they can't freely access all of their weapons.

As I only paid £9 for this game I wasn't really too worried whether it was brilliant or just good, and having played through the first few levels I would have to say that overall this is a good game, nothing more. The graphics are gorgeous and the characters are well animated and voiced, I suppose in this respect it is excellent, but it is let down by the controls and the unhelpful lighting. The controls are over sensitive (I should be used to this as a Tomb Raider fan!) and when trying to make difficult jumps is incredibly frustrating, and makes the game very reptitive in places as you keep falling off, and the screen is at times so dark that you cannot see ladders or other essential parts of the scenery. Another gripe is that there is only autosave, you can't save when you want which doesn't help when it comes to the aforementioned jumps, also the camera angle cannot always be manipulated which again makes jumps difficult sometimes.
However once you get over the areas where these niggles kick in the game is very enjoyable; running, jumping, gliding, using your batrope and beating up villians is really good fun and well executed, and I do think the game is worth playing although I'm unsure I would pay £30 for it, maybe one best to pick up cheap, as I did, or second hand.

I really like batman games. I found Batman Forever Arcade an addictive and challenging game. I found Batman and Robin ground breaking, and was blown away with the sheer depth and excellence of it. I even found batman Beyond to be a good, fast paced game. I can say that I am in a minority. I bought Vengeance expecting a Batman and Robin type game but after two minutes of playing, i was hooked. This game shows up every other Batman game ever and sets a new standard. I rank this game above Grand Theft Auto 3, it has better controls, better combat and , very strangely, is much more fun. I would reccomend this to people strongely, even to those who feel lukewarm about Batman. This game is incredible.

Well I certainly remember all the hype about this little title six years ago. So, being a Batman fan, I got myself a newly released copy at a cheap price of £19.99 at my local GAME even though then recent reviews had said it was a bit too lineiar.

Well I have to admit, the graphics are beautiful and really look like something out of the old cartoon series. The music score is excellent and gloomy. However some of the controls are a bit sensitive and slow, especially when fighting multiple foes.

However, having said that one can't help but have a hidden guilt for throwing bad guys off-buildings or into vats of chemicals etc as the Batman. You also get a nice handful of villains to fight (they go in this order: The Joker, Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn). There are some unexpected twists for those who haven't played the game yet and if you are a fan of the franchise then I suggest that you get it. Just don't expect the free-roaming ability of Spiderman 2, Ultimate Spiderman or Superman Returns.

A good Batman game, but not great. If you're looking for a great one get Batman Begins. ***

Looks good, sounds good, has Batman in it but plays like an absolute dog.
It manages to recreate all those great episodes where Batman tries to jump a gap, but plunges to his death. When Batman leaps across rooftops, wobbles chaotically in the air, plunges to his death. Or that great adventure when Batmans point of view decides to reverse itself and Batman plunges to his death. Or even when he carefully edges along a ledge, takes a step too far and, you guessed it, plunges to his death.
Get the idea? It all looks good, dark and moody like the cartoon series but if the games a pig to play it's not much fun. Even the tutorial is a bit lame, and some of the power ups in the game actually rely on you failing a jump to be found!
Major disappointment.
