  1. There's just no way around it - Batman: Dark Tomorrow simply failed on the core aspect of gameplay design.
  2. It's ultimately dragged down by erratic control, sloppy design, and wildly jarring changes in camera angle. [June 2003, p.82]

    Nothing more than a miserable failure that's so bad, it's funny. Just like your most favorite, cheese-laden late night horror flick, there are moments in this lackluster sissy of an action-adventure that you'll literally bust a gut laughing at.
  4. All the stealth elements of this game fail completely due to the restrictive camera. Kemco describes the game as ‘Action Adventure’, (which puts us in mind of Buffy) but there is little of either to be had here.

    Without a doubt, the worst Batman game ever. Yes, worse than the 16-bit "Batman: Return of the Joker," "Batman Forever" the arcade game, and even the Game.com Batman.
  6. The vexing controls and camera system, combined with the poor enemy AI and simplified combat, make even a weekend rental of Dark Tomorrow tough to justify.
  7. A poor excuse for a Tenchu-style fighter, thinly veiled as a story-driven stealth action game a la Metal Gear that's so laughably bad it actually makes "Batman: Vengeance" look like the best superhero action game ever created.
  8. The actual experience of playing Batman: Dark Tomorrow is so awful that avoiding the game altogether is the best course of action.
  9. 22
    A crime against comic book licenses. Flawed from top to bottom, from beginning to end... This is a great example of "what not to do."
  10. Dark Tomorrow is, in a word, abigheapingpileoffeces. It's sloppy, scattered, and illustrates the word "janky" better than any dictionary definition ever could. [June-July 2003, p.91]
  11. If any game reviewer on this site even thinks about writing a positive review about this piece of shit, I will fire him on the spot. A positive review will be proof enough of his or her inability to do their job.
  12. I'm not joking when I say the people who purchase this game would be better off if the case was empty... The worst game I have ever played. [May 2003, p.62]
  13. A mind-numbing combination of awkward combat, mediocre visuals, and a camera that wouldn't be out of place in a Greco-Roman torture chamber, Dark Tomorrow fails on nearly every level imaginable. [June 2003, p.56]

    You want to know the worst part this had potential this had potential to be something great so what happened. Pros: the story, the cutscenes, multiple endings to show whether or not you can stop ras al ghuls plan, I like how it is set in the comics rather then just being an else world story. Cons: gameplay, camera angles, modes, it's just repitive, why are you never told ras al ghul has a BOMB so your first ending will most likely be you stop him but the bomb goes off Full Review »
