  1. Graphics and sound quality were especially impressive, but its gameplay flaws destroyed any possible greatness it might have had.
  2. The gameplay here sucks. It is heinous, hideous, and despicable. The game's presentation, though, does shine through and makes the game bearable.
  3. The game’s presentation is nothing less than excellent, and its graphics and sound are great too. On the other hand, the control and camera are awful, and the gameplay often fails to deliver on its lofty intentions.

    Stay away from Batman: Dark Tomorrow like it was a greatest hits CD of Christina Aguilera songs performed on an water-swollen oboe.
  5. If players can overcome the gloomy graphics, irritating camera, and puzzling gadgets, they can look forward to swinging from rooftop to rooftop, punching dozens of enemies using two moves over and over again, ducking behind walls like "Metal Gear Solid," and even taking to the skies in an awkward controlling Batglider.
  6. When you combine the stiff gameplay, muddy graphics, and clunky movement in the game's levels, Batman: Dark Tomorrow ends up feeling like it was thrown together with half-finished components.
  7. You'll find it almost unplayable thanks to both the worst camera and control in the history of video gaming.

    An insane masterpiece of a game.

    Of course, being a batman game instantly raises the game rating by at least 10 points.
    The graphics and ost is incredibly amazing for the Gamecube.
    Not a single game can come close to this beautifully crafted piece of art.
    Simply, a true hidden gem of the previous gaming era and the magnum opus of that generation.
    To this day, I'm still left wondering how Kemco could come up with such a perfection and I will forever be grateful for such fond memories of my childhood.

    I love you Kemco, you're the very best thing that happened in my life

    How they screw up Batman? He's like the easiest character to follow! Bad camera angles, just terrible! This is a big slap to the face to trueHow they screw up Batman? He's like the easiest character to follow! Bad camera angles, just terrible! This is a big slap to the face to true Batman fans like the story is decent I have to admit but too bad the gameplay is awful. Beating the game was a huge pain in the ass but I managed to beat it. I recommend you to watch the cut scene instead of playing the game. Expand
