    It's a good game that truly engrosses the player into the role of Batman while demonstrating simple, but well-designed gameplay mechanics.
  2. 82
    While the gameplay could still use some refinement and focus, the overall Vengeance adventure is an engaging and entertaining one.
  3. This game looks marvelous. Playing it honestly feels like you are in an interactive episode of the cartoon.
  4. 70
    The 3D visual and audio style is topnotch, and the cinemas are a blast—even if some camera views are awkward and some areas are a little too dark and muddy.
  5. Game Informer
    It doesn’t correct any of the mistakes made by its PS2 predecessor. [Feb 2002, p.92]
  6. If you can look past its denounceable play control then you will find a smart, stylish, Batman experience that is, at its foundation, true to its namesake.
  7. Official Xbox Magazine
    It takes more than a pretty cape to impress us these days. [Feb 2002, p.70]

    With ubisoft's crappy reception with previous batman games, they finally got it right and made you feel like the dark knight. First personWith ubisoft's crappy reception with previous batman games, they finally got it right and made you feel like the dark knight. First person mode didn't really bother me but hey at least it was better than dark tomorrows weapons controls. Batman's combat was very well done and the super moves was a blast to use and they were very good and quick to use compared to begins where begins combat system where slow and dull. Vehicles stages where awesome and the music was beautiful, which made me feel like i was in a episode of batman the animated series and environment captures the show. Guys i know that this is old but at least ubisoft tried and gave us a good batman game where it made you feel like the dark knight and you gotta admit that the arkham games borrowed some elements from vengeance and rise of sin tzu so without these games their would be no arkham and many people and review s such as kwing, ign and gamestop like this game. Also, i loved the stealth and quick stealth in this game. What is quick stealth? Well if people read the manual it is activated when you use a smoke bomb on a enemy and go behind the and press the y button to do a stealth take down, which is awesome and finish the combat fight smoothly in case you don't wanna fight or you are lossing health. Finding ammo is easy cause you just have to look around. Instead of bashing this game, i would like to thank ubisoft for redeeming themselves and worked hard in making this game because they would have just given us a half assed batman game like batman beyond return of the joker. Story was alright except for the first act but it was a good kind of alright cause it reminded me alot of the animated series and i loved the swat chase level cause it was a sort of homage to the batman mask of phantasm scene where batman was chased by the cops, which was my favorite scene and i love playing that level. If you are a die hard batman fan, then buy this game, but if you are just a gamer who may like batman then give this a shot. It is a classic batman game that started it all. Expand
