  • Summary: Batman, the Dark Knight detective of Gotham City, is back in an all-new adventure. In Batman: Dark Tomorrow, it's up to Batman to solve the mystery and save the day. The legendary Caped Crusader must use all his mental and physical skills, batglider capabilities, devices from his utility belt, and sleuthing prowess to fight crime and defeat enemies. You must battle both new and familiar enemies, including Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, and the Joker. But in some missions, stealth is just as important as brute force. Expand

  1. Graphics and sound quality were especially impressive, but its gameplay flaws destroyed any possible greatness it might have had.
  2. The gameplay here sucks. It is heinous, hideous, and despicable. The game's presentation, though, does shine through and makes the game bearable.
  3. The game’s presentation is nothing less than excellent, and its graphics and sound are great too. On the other hand, the control and camera are awful, and the gameplay often fails to deliver on its lofty intentions.
  4. Stay away from Batman: Dark Tomorrow like it was a greatest hits CD of Christina Aguilera songs performed on an water-swollen oboe.
  5. If players can overcome the gloomy graphics, irritating camera, and puzzling gadgets, they can look forward to swinging from rooftop to rooftop, punching dozens of enemies using two moves over and over again, ducking behind walls like "Metal Gear Solid," and even taking to the skies in an awkward controlling Batglider.
  6. When you combine the stiff gameplay, muddy graphics, and clunky movement in the game's levels, Batman: Dark Tomorrow ends up feeling like it was thrown together with half-finished components.
  7. You'll find it almost unplayable thanks to both the worst camera and control in the history of video gaming.

    I think this is a decent game for all those dumb weiners that give this game a 0 are lazy bums that cant probably pass the game cause they dont got skills. This game is a good time killer if you want to waste some time overall this game has good action. Expand

    This entire package contends for worst game ever - it's literally unplayable. It's only saving grace is the London Philharmonic sountrack and the decent cinematics. Expand

    This game is harder than trying to bury a turd in a box of wet kitty litter, I'd rather cough up a hairball than play this horrible game, call Bob Barker whoever made this game needs to be spayed and neutered. Expand

    OH...MY...GOD. Kemco, what in the hell did Batman ever do to you for him to recieve this absolute atrocity of a game??? And what really, REALLY sucks is that we FINALLY get a Batman game that isnt based on any of the cartoon series or movies (a nice change of pace) but an actual COMIC BASED game. Here you have a Batman game that has fantastic production value (after seeing the intro you get really hyped to play, the story line was REALLY GOOD and would have done the Batman comic proud, and it had TONS of villians from the most famous to the most totally obscure) and what did Kemco do? COMPLETELY BOTCHED THE GAME. People, i'm not joking when i say that gameplay is broken from top to bottom. And the sole reason for this is due to the WORST camera views/changes in ALL of the video games that i have EVER played. I really CANNOT stress that enough. WORST..CAMERA..EVER. It LITTERALY changes the view every 2-3 seconds and when it does, your control set up completely changes due to the view that the camera gives you. So when your playing it you have to deal with the camera spazzing out consistantly while at the same time dealing with the ever changing controls due to the camera changing ALL THE TIME. And i wont lie, i beat the game, yes folks that not a typo, I BEAT THE GAME, but only out of my mad sense of loyalty to Batman. Otherwise, do everything in your power to avod this game. Talk about a huge letdown. Expand
