STAFF REVIEW of Batman Vengeance (Xbox)

Batman Vengeance Box art Batman Vengeance has a good look to it, and great voice acting, but it falls apart in it's execution of the gameplay. It's a game that desperately needed to be more open-ended, with freedom to explore on your own. Instead you are locked into nearly a rail-shooter style of gameplay in which you follow a linear path.


There were a few things I loathed about this game that nearly made it unplayable. First was the camera (I'll get to that later...), then there was the gameplay which included far too much platform jumping for my taste. Lastly, I was annoyed by the bat cuffs. What happened to the good old days when you could beat the baddies to death. Instead, Batman beats them and then must use his bat cuffs on them, or they'll come back and attack you. Arresting every bad guy is not my idea of a fun game.


BV has a cool look to it. Batman and the environments look great. The problem is the camera is never in the right spot. I can only think of one game that has a worse camera (Dark Angel).


Not too much to complain about here. Mark Hammil supplies the voice of the Joker, and all the voice cast is solid. The rest of the effects and music do what it should.


Suggestions:
I really liked the look of the game, and think they should design a more open-ended style of gameplay around that look. Also, fix the camera.


Overall: 4.0 / 10
Gameplay: 3.0 / 10
Visuals: 6.0 / 10
Sound: 8.0 / 10
