    Besides the normal cat-like abilities, you can also initiate a feral, berserker mode that ups the damage of your attacks. Catwoman's whip allows you to destroy objects and lash your prey with an effortless grace that would make a Bangkok dominatrix burn with jealousy.
  2. Attempts to deliver some "Prince of Persia"-like acrobatics, but its sharp graphics are offset by bad control, weak voice work, and shoddy gameplay.
  3. Some of the obstacles require some moves to be performed in combination. It may look easy in the movie but it's God-awful difficult in this game because of the controls, which tend never to do what you want it to do.
  4. In short, playing this epic-sized monstrosity is similar to being scratched to death by a house cat...not only is it painful, it's also embarrassing. [Sept 2004, p.104]
  5. Catwoman, is quite simply, complete tripe...It's superficial. Everything about this game is based around how it looks rather than how it plays.
  6. Besides the horrendous camera and controls, what irked me the most was how nonsensical it was. Its relentless linearity leads to jumping puzzles that make absolutely no sense. [Oct 2004, p.101]
  7. From its bad control to its bad design, this is the real reason god kills kittens.

    I think this game is awesome. Wonderful Graphics, Fantastic game play. Everyone is complaining about the controls. Well, I say they should I think this game is awesome. Wonderful Graphics, Fantastic game play. Everyone is complaining about the controls. Well, I say they should just suck it up and actually learn them. After a while with them , it's very easy to pull off moves. This game is great. It's not absulutly breathtaking, but It's very fun while it last. Nobody is giving this game a chance. It's either comic book fan boys who're bashing this game, or people who despise the movie. And oh yeah, the movie was great too! The so called "professional" reviewers are doing the exact same thing. I really like this game. ANd anyone who is a fan of action/adventure games should pick this up. If you liked PoP then you should pick this up. If you like Halle Berry you should pick this up. It's a good game and peoplle are bashing it harder than they should. Expand
