Thinking about buying Batman Vengeance? You might want to think again.
OK, the graphics are cartoony, but they're sussposed to be; Batman Vengeance is based on the Batman cartoon in the mid-1990's. The graphics are pretty good, but they could have been better.
Don't even get me started. Batman Vengeance doesn't even come close to even DECENT control. Sometimes the controls act so funny they go in the opposite direction you press. The camera is constantly moving and shifting right in front of you so your constantly falling off buildings and plummeting to your death, having to start the level all over again.
Batman Vengeance has some secrets, but they all can be unlocked by cheats. There is not really any point of playing a second time.
Replay Value 4/10:
Batman Vengeance is one of those games that you love for a week or two but then you'lll never play it again once the good games start rolling in. The game is somewhat lackluster and dull.
The storyline is pretty good in Batman Vengeance for one thing. It all starts when a woman's baby gets kidnapped by the Joker and is held for 5,000,000 dollars in ransom. Other villans in the game include: Harley-Quinn, Mr.Freeze, and Poison Ivy, along with dozens of common crooks and thugs. I don't want to give out any spoilers so I'll just say it's good and easy to follow.
The music in Batman Vengeance is normal, not exellent, not horrible, just normal and good.
Game Enviorment 6/10:
As you might have guessed, most of Batman Vengeance takes place at night so this game is really dark. It's not like you can't see Batman or anything. Luckily, though you can change the brightness to your liking, so the darkness is nothing to complain about.
Most of Batman Vengeance is easy, but there are a few parts that you'll be stuck on for days. You're lucky if you can beat the Batplane but the Batmobile is impossible, you'll just keep on trying until you give up and play a different game.
I give Batman:Vengeance a 4/10 because the game is fun at first but will eventually become boring, too difficult, and a dusty game that sits on the shelf. No matter what, rent this game before you buy it. Most people will want to take a pass. However, hardcore Batman or superhero gamers might find this as an exellent game.
Rating: 2.0 - Poor
