    Step into the shadows of Gotham City as you fight crime with Batman, The Dark Knight as he fights crime with super combat techniques and high technological gadgets. It is a very wonderful gaming experience and a spellbounding game from EA. The villains involved are Ra's Al Ghul, The Scarecrow and Carmine Falcone. You won't want to miss the chance of playing such an excellent do you

    Batman hasn't been known for having good games, but this game changes that bad rep, it's just so much fun to play, the graphics, sound, and controls are great, it has fun racing areas, and fun stealth scare tactics like gameplay, the only flaw is the camera, it rarely works with you, this is one you want to pick up if your a Batman fan, or just like good games, a blast to play.

    El combate falla y el final es un poco agridulce, pero el juego en sí no deja de ser espectacular gracias no sólo a un respeto a la peli, sino a un complemento de la misma que hace al juego más duradero, entretenido e interesante, por no mencionar la diversa cantidad de interacciones permitidas y, como no, el Batmóvil.

    Calificación: 8.7/10

    Before there was Arkham Asylum, it began on the PS2 with Batman Begins.

    Begins takes Batman into a realm he has never been before, this is a smart Batman this a wary Batman. He is only a man and he not going to jump into a fight with a bunch guys armed to the teeth, he will cut to shreds in seconds. And that is how you need to approach this awesome movie tie-in. This is the true game

    Begins takes Batman into a realm he has never been before, this is a smart Batman this a wary Batman. He is only a man and he not going to jump into a fight with a bunch guys armed to the teeth, he will cut to shreds in seconds. And that is how you need to approach this awesome movie tie-in.

    This is the true game that uses fear over all other means. While recent batman games have used this mechanic they also didn't punish you if you got caught, you could still duke it out with little damage, Begins doesn't give you that luxury and it's a better game for it. Fear is the key and you need to get those heart-rates to the point of darkness. Whilst linear this 2005 streamlines they experience by setting you on a direct that has you cross Scarecrows thugs and having to survive the onslaught of the Gotham P.D.

    Things get tough and you have only your wits to get you through the night. With varied locations Begins really takes you on a roller coaster or survival where you are not invincible, but still deadly if you stick to the shadows.

    Also Begins gives you what you have wanted for the past 6 years and lets you cause utter mayhem in the Batmobile. Inspired by Burnout 3, you get to break up the levels by traveling between locals whilst taking down thugs and cops alike. Not as good as Burnout 3, but decent fun on the way to more stealth sections.

    Whilst it shares similar aspects with the modern Arkham series, it has a lot more stealth to keep you in the dark, it's all about survival and fear.

    As a whole, the game was a little short (six hours), but it's still a pretty fun ride despite the fact that it is not the definitive Batman game we've been waiting for. This game ain't the greatest in terms of freedom and linearity, but I'll still take it over "Spider-Man 2." No doubt.
  2. Batman Begins isn't just a good game, it's two great games that play great together. When you’re the caped crusader, it's an action game in the mold of "Splinter Cell"... Then, when you’re driving the Batmobile, the game morphs into "Burnout," with you knocking cars off the road as you careen through traffic.

    Crates and barrels aside, Batman Begins is generally a well-produced game. Its visuals are often striking, and are distinct in style from those of the film.
