    With abundant action tied into a good story, Daredevil has a larger appeal than most movie-licensed games. [Summer 2003, p.39]
  2. The game’s hit detection is horrendous, the boss fights are excruciatingly aggravating, and even without all its flaws, Daredevil would still only be a bland and repetitive platformer.
  3. The gameplay can become fairly stale after an hour or so. This isn’t a pick-up-and-play title either, because the password saves are much too long and complex.
  4. It simply does not capture the spirit of the Daredevil character and his universe.

    The upside is that various movie stills and comic art are unlockable secrets. Big whoop. [Mar 2003, p.72]
  6. 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.

    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]

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

    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. Expand
