  1. You've basically got a barely interactive "Splinter Cell for Dummies." [Sept 2005, p.91]
  2. Batman Begins feels more like work than fun. Look at Spider-Man 2 to see how superhero games should be done. [NGC]

    I used to play this all the time as a kid and I just recently dusted it off again. It is amazing how much higher my expectations are for graphics these days. I remember playing this nearly a decade ago and being amazed by it.
    The graphics do still stand up, but there are some odd moments. This game really shines by making you feel like you are Batman. The levels are very vey linear and by that I mean you have one and only one way to play through each level there isn't even a detour you can make through a level. You have to get rid of all the enemies in the same fashion.
    I think this game doesn't get enough credit. I really firmly believe that this game was a the great starting point for the Arkham video games. There are a lot of similarities between them.

    It's a slow progressive game that defines a mixed taste , while Batman ( in that time) didn't had a fantastic moment in the gaming industry . Batman Begins , begins a good reputation to the grim hero . Full Review »

    The graphics and presentation are nice, but the gameplay is seriously dumb. But I could see someone who hasn't played many games getting some enjoyment. Full Review »
