  1. 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.

    If you loved the cartoon, you’ll go batty for Vengeance’s complete and polished packed of Caped Crusading. [Feb 2002, p.149]
  3. Don't worry about what it isn't, just enjoy it for what it is – one of the few playable and, yep, fairly enjoyable superhero games out there.
  4. 73
    The pace is quick, the visuals pleasant and the writing as tight as its television counterpart.
  5. 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.
  6. This is competent, if uninspired stuff that will no doubt please Bat-fans. [NGC]
  7. 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.
  8. 70
    Even with an outstanding soundtrack, great voice acting, some incredible, although obviously cartoonish cutscenes, the overall experience is not nearly as rewarding as it could have been.
  9. While this linear formula is an old one, it works well thanks to the polished presentation and variety of gameplay modes.
  10. Game Informer

    For most players, this game will only slightly entertain. [Feb 2002, p.87]
  11. A constant, an ever-glimmering paradox that may someday lead the land into a brightened future.
  12. It's also short, and there is no reason why you would feel compelled to play it again. No secrets to unlock, no hidden characters.
  13. Batman Vengeance had a hopeful start, but the controls, cameras, and crappy graphics make this bat look like a rat.
