    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.
