    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.

    The elements were in place for a solid platforming title with a little hand-to-hand combat thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately, a painfully annoying camera and some downright boring combat kept that from coming to fruition.
  3. Thanks to its many glaring flaws such as awful camera and awkward combat controls, Catwoman isn’t much fun to play even with the cool feline abilities.
  4. Basically, there's nothing to like about Catwoman outside of the graphics. At the very most, the game deserves a rental.
  5. 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]
  6. The hell of the game is that the environmental puzzle setups look pretty good -- climb the wall, lash onto the nearest outcropping, swing to clamber chainlink fences, etc. It's just a shame the game actively fights your ability to navigate them.
  7. From its bad control to its bad design, this is the real reason god kills kittens.

    I recently bought this game and have already finished it. The camera in this game is the worst part of the game. It stays glued on I recently bought this game and have already finished it. The camera in this game is the worst part of the game. It stays glued on Catwoman's sexy body, making it hard to move in the game. The graphics are good considering it's a EA game. They spent most of their attention on Halle's curvacious body making her look and move realistically. Anyways the game is "enjoyable", despite what the critics say. Expand

    Other than "Bad Boys II," "Drake of the 99 Dragons," "and Charlie's Angels," this is the worst game I have played this year. I really Other than "Bad Boys II," "Drake of the 99 Dragons," "and Charlie's Angels," this is the worst game I have played this year. I really wanted to love it. I like Catwoman as a character, and I like EA, but this was a major disappointment. The game is UNPLAYABLE. The enemies don't die, the controls are impossible, and I could go on, but that wouldn't make the game better. I was hoping that this wouldn't be as bad as the movie, but it definitely is. Expand

    Rented it, I wish I didn't. My God this is awful, as bad, if not worse, then the movie. However, the movie only lasts for a few hours, Rented it, I wish I didn't. My God this is awful, as bad, if not worse, then the movie. However, the movie only lasts for a few hours, this could potentially last for MORE. What do you end up with? GUESS WHAT? Another movie cash-in by Electronic Arts that will be forgotten in 2 weeks. Avoid like the black plague. And boycot EA by the way, untill they make GOOD games that AREN'T related directly to movies, or that aren't franchises of which they bought the publishing rights. I hate EA by the way. But not nearly as much as this "game". Expand
