Product Description

Amazon.com

In Batman: Vengeance, the gritty underworld of Gotham ignites as Batman becomes the target of a nerve-rattling conspiracy. After the Joker plummets to his death in an attempt to kill Batman, Gotham's criminals quickly escalate their schemes to gain power. Batman discovers subtle links in these seemingly unrelated crimes, but is forced undercover after being framed for an attack on Commissioner Gordon. Hunted by the police, the Dark Knight must pinpoint the unseen enemy weaving this sinister web before Gotham City falls to a fiery demise.

Batman: Vengeance introduces the most versatile 3-D Batman game yet, with more than 500 animated movements, special fighting moves, and a multifunctional cape with its own AI. For the first time, players can journey through a fully rendered 3-D Gotham City with Batman's sleek weapons and devices at their fingertips, including the BatGrapple, BatScope, Batarang, BatLauncher, flash bombs, and more. There is a huge array of gameplay modes: exploring, fighting, first-person shooter, driving, flying, freefall, and puzzles.

The Gotham City environment, reconstructed in full 3-D, contains 19 playable maps, including the rooftops, Gotham Industrial Research, and the Batcave. There are also more than 40 minutes of cinematics featuring the original voice cast of TV's The New Batman Adventures. The game's original story line was written in collaboration between Warner Brothers and DC Comics from the files of The New Batman Adventures. The Dolby Surround 5.1 Sound soundtrack features original music inspired by the television series.

Review

There have been more lame Batman games created in the last decade than there are tights-wearing felons in Gotham City, but thankfully Batman: Vengeance hits the Bat-target with the golden Batarang. Because the game is based on The New Batman Adventures (an animated series), the visuals are 3-D versions of the cartoon's very stylized designs. This can sometimes cause the backdrops to be rather lacking in detail, but generally it's an interesting and unusual look.

The gameplay is similar to Soul Reaver, with plenty of Batgadgets to play with, and even a few Metal Gear-esque elements sneaking around. There's also an excellent 3-D combat system and a bunch of driving and puzzle subgames of varying quality. A few obvious flaws do get under your tights, such as the oversensitive controls, the intrusive loading times, and the often frustratingly obscure level designs, but this is easily the best Batgame yet. --David Jenkins

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the comics enthusiast; some control quirks December 9, 2001
If you like comics and the updated style of Batman cartoons, you'll really like the look of this game. The art directors did a great job keeping the feel of the show, and the video inbetweens (cinematics) are really good. In fact, getting to see the next one is incentive to keep playing. And while the in-game graphics obviously aren't as polished as the pre-rendered parts, they're still pretty good, staying true to the cartoon. The opening mix of gameplay and cinematics is very dramatic.
The controls could be better. Particularly when you're flying the batplane or driving the batmobile. In fact, the batplane section, so far, has been the weakest part of the game for me, with the batmobile/car chase a close second. Plus, running around QUAKE-style, shooting bat-a-rangs is a little boring.
Some of the in-game directions could use work, too. Some objectives aren't particularly clear at first...they should have tested the gameplay on people who didn't work on it.
My hope is that response will be strong enough for a streamlined sequel, with better overall controls, deeper fighting combinations, and the ability to bat-grapple wherever you'd like. The game isn't particularly hard, and it felt kinda lame beating up Mr. Freeze's thungs, who are all young women! (...who manage to be tougher than Joker's big thugs).
Essentially, this game isn't nearly as puzzle oriented as TOMB RAIDER, but it makes up for it somewhat in overall style. If you see it used for $30-35, definitely pick it up. (Each star is worth $10.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Can it Be? A GOOD Batman game!!! December 5, 2001
"Batman: Vengeance" has got to be one of the best Batman games ever made, with the only contender being "Batman & Robin" for the SNES. In the game, you control the Bat through 5 extremely large and immersive episodes, each with their own villain just itching for Bats to lay the smack down on 'em. You can also drive the batmobile as well as fly the batwing (Batplane as it's now called), and perform some intense free-falls in which you have seconds to save a falling person from a certain death... cool, huh? The graphics are stellar, with character models coming right out of the animated series, and with CG video between missions. When you see the way Batman's cape moves during gameplay, it will bring a tear of joy to your eyes. You also have access to all the bat-goodies possible, like batarangs and the grappling hook (which is really cool). You can creep along ledges, surprise villians by sneaking up on them, and even Bat-cuff fallen enemies so they don't get back up and give you a good beating from behind. The only bad part about this game is the controls. The Caped Crusader controls awkwardly, with most novice gamers falling off ledges due to inching forward. The camera can be a real jerk, with most angles during the platform jumping sequences being just plain unforgiving. But after the initial difficulty this presents, if you stick with it, this is arguably the best Batman game ever (though that ain't saying much.) Spider-Man is still the best superhero game out there (...). Until then, this code should help you: at the Title Screen, PRESS L2, R2, L2, R2, SQUARE, SQUARE, CIRCLE, CIRCLE. Start a game, pause it, go to the Special Moves menu, get to the CHEATS section, and activate whatever you want. Have fun!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great fun, you could do alot worse October 25, 2001
As cool as the PS2 is, ive had a difficult time finding games that keep me hooked. The EA sports games always rule, but ive had a hard time with the action/adventure games.....that changed with Batman: vengence.....first of all, im a total comic geek, so i was attracted to this game for obvious reasons, however the gameplay is so awesome. You are the dark knight, and you have all of his weapons/gadgets at your disposal. There are many levels ( ive only beaten 6) in which you have to fight a myriad of villians from batman's rogue gallery, all complete with thugs to try to stop you before you get to the level boss....gameplay is fluid, fast, and easy to control. You get to take command of the batmobile, batplane, ect....one of the coolest features, is when you use your batarangs, bat grapple ect, the game kicks into first person view, giving the game two unique perspectives. the only reason why it dose'nt get 5 stars is i rarely give a game that mark ( madden2002, tony hawk ect) but if your looking for a cool action/adventure game for the PS2, this is a good one

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Super Hero Game on the PS2 console June 15, 2002
By A Customer
I mean this game is absolutely awesome! Don't be fooled by what other reviews say they're just bad gamers. If you are a real gamer this is the game for you. I'm glad I bought this instead of Spider-Man. What really makes me mad Spider-Man is so cool yet they make his game so pathetic. Unfortunately the Spider-Man game has alot of problems with seeing Spider-Man from different angles sometimes. But Batman: Vengeance is free of that flaw. But seriously people this is raw action. Its hard figuring out what to do sometimes though. But this is one of those games that aren't too hard but not too easy either. It's one of the few games you can be challenged with not having to get your cheats out. The only bad thing is thats 2 things Batman has beat Spidey at,the cartoon and the game. And another good thing is that the movie clips are way more 3-D than the Spider-Man Games for those of you who are having trouble deciding. I mean come on in most of the movie clips from the Marvel games the people have big deformed shaped blobs for hands. UBI Soft is way more detailed. And if you love any cartoons with Batman involved, Justice League, Batman Beyond, you'll absolutely love this regardless what anyone tells you. The only flaw in this game is the controls they're sort of hard but once you get used to them you become very good at other games with hard controls and even better at games with easy controls.
