Batman: Joker.
the Joker: Heck of a joke, huh, Bats?
Batman: Hilarious. What's the punch-line?
the Joker: Hmph. Some detective. Here's the joke: I'm not dead, and Gotham is. The punch-line: It's all YOUR fault, Batsy.
Batman: The gasworks. The Prometheum. It was all you.
the Joker: That was me, but... Small potatoes. I wanted help, if I wanted to murder a whole city.
Batman: Harley.
the Joker: Sure. Harley had you wrapped around her little... whatever... But I needed more! But I needed more! That's where you came in.
Batman: The gasworks.
the Joker: Ooh. Nice work with that one, Bats. ...

absolutely awesome!
29 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Let me say right off the bat (no pun intended): this is, without a doubt, the best Batman video game ever produced. I'm not much for PlayStation or PlayStation2, but this game absolutely rocks. It remains completely faithful to the animated series, with all the same actors and actresses providing the voices, and original music that sounds as if it's right out of the show. The controls take a little getting used to, especially thanks to the ever-changing camera position, something I've never been fond of in video games of recent years, but a tap of one key automatically repositions the camera behind Batman, where it is best used. The game starts with two training levels to let you get use to the controls: the first has you looking for and rescuing a woman from a building that's about to be destroyed by a bomb, and the second is a run through the Batcave training exercises.

I've only rented the game so far, so I'm unable to review a whole lot. The training levels are very useful, and the rooftop chase level is exciting. The fight with the Joker atop the bridge is rather difficult, as he swings back and forth on a wrecking ball, and you can only damage him at certain times, and you must do so before he destroys the top of the tower and causes you to plummet to the bay below.

Everything else is top-notch, from the acting by the voices we all know and love to the straight-from-the-show set design and lighting. Playing this game, you sometimes think you're actually watching an episode of THE NEW BATMAN ADVENTURES. First Batman was given his best incarnation as an animated series. Now he's been given his best video game incarnation, and it will be the one for all others to top.
