Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu Gameplay Movie 10
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 21
  2. Negative: 2 out of 21
  1. A case where the sum is greater than the parts. If you can get past the repetitive gameplay you may actually find a game with a great personality.
  2. Only devout Batman fans and action gamers looking for a quick fix will find much appeal in Batman: Rise of the Sin Tzu.
  3. 70
    This game is strictly for action junkies and can be completed in a quick weekend rental. However, the quality of the graphics and gameplay hints at the potential for deeper, more compelling Batman games to come.
  4. 60
    Sure, it might be tempting to focus on the game's weaknesses, such as its repetition or limited focus, but in the end it's hard to dislike such a well-made package.
  5. 60
    The more I played it, the less I enjoyed it. It's a rudimentary beat-'em-up game which borrows the combo compliments of "Devil May Cry" and the buy-a-combo system of "The Two Towers," and thinks those elements by themselves are enjoyable, which they're not.
  6. Cheat Code Central
    60
    About as classy as a "KerPOW!" sound effect and sadly never elevates itself beyond basic Bat-Shtick.
  7. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    40
    Forsakes any sort of previously demonstrated variety, great story, or awesome atmosphere all in favor of fight, fight, fight. It only needs the "POW! WHAP! BLORP!" [Nov 2003, p.130]

    I remember playing this game with pretty much anyone that had the time to pick up the second controller and it was always a blast.
    Lots of moves to unlock and combo's to figure out, cool items to pickup and use, maps are fun to walk around and the cutscenes and bosses are decent aswell.
    its kinda short tho (2-4 hours)

    There are a couple of groups of people who will love this game. 1) Younger kids for whom button mashing does not detract from game play. My 6 There are a couple of groups of people who will love this game. 1) Younger kids for whom button mashing does not detract from game play. My 6 year old nephew loves it. 2) Fans of the animated series, who will love the look of the heroes and the levels. Very true to the whole Dini feel. The graphics are suprising good for a franchise game. This is not one of those "let's make a comic book video game that has poor game play and poor graphics'. (SPAWN! SPAWN!) 3) People who play 2 player versions of games. There are few non sports games that support a quality 2 player version. (Halo springs to mind) The two player is easy, mindless and a complete blast. Expand

    Unlike Spiderman, this one doesn't have fluidity in the commands, blows and movements and a more "stuck" game still doesn't lose its shine.Unlike Spiderman, this one doesn't have fluidity in the commands, blows and movements and a more "stuck" game still doesn't lose its shine. What he loses in the moves he gains in the feeling of strength where you really feel that the punches are strong Expand

    Bel gioco, peccato per i bug che rovinano tutto.
    Tante mosse da usare e tanti gadget.
    La camera dall'alto non ha nessun bug per fortuna.
