    It has the gimmick of Daredevil's heightened senses and special abilities but it's not enough to carry the lame gameplay.

    Yawn-inducingly generic level designs and poopy graphics would have been forgivable had Griptonite Games implemented this neat little invention called collision detection that most games use today.
  3. 40
    Daredevil had potential, but the result is merely an uninspired, generic movie tie-in that doesn't excel in any particular area and stumbles when it comes to meaningful gameplay.

    The movie might be OK. But the game? It's a lifeless, mediocre beat-em-up.[Mar 2003, p.134]
  5. A complete waste of time and money. In the two or three hours it takes to beat the game, there isn’t a single moment of true entertainment or thrill.

    The upside is that various movie stills and comic art are unlockable secrets. Big whoop. [Mar 2003, p.72]

    It quickly devolves into an old-school side-scroller in which mashing one button constitutes hand-to-hand combat with Bullseye and Co. [7 Mar 2003, p.79]

    I first got this game when i was just 8 years old... I thought this game was extremely tough and could never get past Electra without usingI first got this game when i was just 8 years old... I thought this game was extremely tough and could never get past Electra without using cheat codes. About a week ago (10 years later), I decided to pick up the game again and give it another chance. The game is decent but flawed. It has decent music and average graphics. The few quick voice grunts are nice and makes each enemy unique. But the combat system leaves a lot to be desired... Enemies are invincible for a few seconds after getting back up which can really mess with your rhythm, certain combinations of enemies will quickly and easily mow you down (ninjas on act 2 lv 2), and the combat itself feels very limited. It's sad, If the combat wasn't so flawed then it would have been a higher score. The last note Is the use of daredevils blind foresight. Finding extra items is really cool, but I ran into the issue that i would find the power ups to overcome an obstacle(like a group of enemies) after the obstacle was done, and that was all you really did with the power. Overall, Daredevil the movie videogame is flawed attempt on what could have been a really amazing title... flawed but still decent for a quick 10-20 minutes of fun. Full Review »

    Not bad. Expected it to suck, but it actually works within the parameters of the given story. Good fun.
