    It is not a game without faults, but its solid, if formulaic gameplay mechanics and beautiful cartoon style combine for an experience that is definitely recommended.

    Lovers of Batman (the cartoon or old-school) and proprietors of Nintendo will have a comfortable 10-hour romp.
  3. The GameCube version slightly edges out its PS2 brother...It succeeds at what it set out to do--it puts you into the role of Batman.
  4. Batman has never looked so good and for once the developers have taken as much care with the gameplay and story as they have with the overall presentation.
  5. Complete and flawless, the cinematics just make the entire game worthwhile. Watching Mr. Freeze deliver a blast from his freeze ray, I damn near feel out of my chair.
  6. While this linear formula is an old one, it works well thanks to the polished presentation and variety of gameplay modes.
  7. Batman Vengeance had a hopeful start, but the controls, cameras, and crappy graphics make this bat look like a rat.

    Actually not too bad - but it doesn't stand out from the crowd of action/adventure games in any way.

    Worst controls possible, gameplay atrocious. Became quickly and frequently frustrated with the overall controls, and the camera control. IWorst controls possible, gameplay atrocious. Became quickly and frequently frustrated with the overall controls, and the camera control. I agree with hmn... Anyone who gives this a rating of 7 or more is retarded. That being said, the graphics were very nostalgic of batman I grew up with on TV, but yeah... Without gameplay, that won't save it. The game itself sucks. Expand

    Ups: Batman, the whole cartoon-show theme Downs: NO violence, having to handcuff badguys, ridiculous combat system, horrible camera and Ups: Batman, the whole cartoon-show theme Downs: NO violence, having to handcuff badguys, ridiculous combat system, horrible camera and controls, stupid mushroom-jumping boredom, mediocre graphics, anticlimactic plot, HORRIBLE driving/piloting levels. I hate this game with a seething passion and hope the idiot responsible for it is burned at the stake. Expand
