Awesome Batman Game., 9 January 2008
Author: kyle-mcdonald from Canada
All I can say about this batman game is that it is awesome and that I
can never get enough of it. The reasons what make this game so awesome
is that the gameplay is awesome because it has lots of action in it the
storyline is really good the computer generation is good The way they
look in the game is really good because they looked just like what they
looked like in the TV show. The levels are really good and they are
really fun they can get a bit treakier as you get hire up in the levels
but that just makes it more fun to play. Also the voice over actors are
really good such as Kevin Conroy as Batman, Tara Strong as Batgirl,
Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as Alfred, Bob Hastings as Commissioner Jim Gordon.
The villains are really good such as Mark Hamill as The Joker, Arleen
Sorkin as Harley Quinn, Michael Ansara as Mr. Freeze, Diane Pershing as
Poison Ivy. So I am sure that you will not be disappointed with Batman
Vengeance because it is an awesome batman video game. So make sure that
you rent or buy Batman Vengeance because it is just so great.
Overall score: ********** out of **********
***** out of *****

A great game except for the fact that I almost destroyed my Gamecube controller...., 5 August 2002
Author: Lando_Hass from The Thuderdome, b**ch!!
The fact that Batman: Vengeance is purley based off the hit cartoon series
does give the game some chance to actually appeal to some people.With the
recent attempts to make a good Batman game,and the recent failures,some
look at Batman: Vengeance and think that its gonna be really bad,but when
you exclude all the flaws that Batman: Vengeance has,you would actually see
that its a good game.Hopefully this review is helpful to you.
Visuals:9/0 The graphics are just plain beautiful,all the cinematics look wonderful and rich.What I liked most about the graphics ,is that it maintains the cartoonish feel,Batman the Joker,and Batgirl dont look like they're serious,they look like they just came right out of the cartoon.The graphics deserve an eight because the character models are a bit jaggy,but nonetheless,the CG scenes look outstanding.The animations are really good,mostly because all the mouth movements look very realistic,and the movement of Batmans cape is pretty cool.I should also add that explosians,gun effects,and stuff like that look really good,but the explosions is really what got my attention.Take my word for it,the graphics are really good,except for the fact that the character models suffer from some jaggies.
Sound:10/10 I probably like the sound most of all,all the stuff like shootings,explosions,and Batman's wird tools sound really great.The people who made this game seemed like they wanted to keep the cartoon quality alive in this game,and it they did,what I mean by that is,is that Batman has different tools and weapons,and one of his weapons is the hammer,when he smacks the enemy in the back of the head,it makes a loud,unrealistic ''DING!'' sound,but thats not a bad thing,its a good thing.Another thing that was really great about Batman: Vengeance,was that all the voice actors from the cartoon series returned for the game,and all of them did a great job,they havent lost any of thier talents from the cartoon series,they can still do the voices after all this time.Like I said,some of Batman's weapons sound cartoony,but the only one of his weapons that sounds realistic is his handcuffs,I dont know why,but I love the sound of the handcuffs.
Gameplay:7/10 People may think that this game is the same ordinary Batman game that has the same type of gameplay as all the others,but it doesnt.The gameplay is just plain fun,and whats also fun about the gameplay,is the fact that you can explore the big environments,even though there isnt much interactivity to go along with the game.The one thing that I dont really like,but I dont care for it,is that you cant really do all the stuff that Batman does in the cartoon series,like you really cant drive the Batmobile,you cant use the batgrapple anywhere you want,and so on,but tell you the truth,I dont really care for the Batgrapple,and the Batmobile,the game could have been more fun if you could use the grapple whenever you want,but the game is fine the way it is.I would have probably given the gameplay factor an nine,but I took two points off because the game was so hard and frustrating,that I nearly broke my Gamecube controller.I hated the fact that if your kind of far in the level,that if you lose,you have to restart,that really pushed me to the point to where I hated the game for a short time.
Story:9/10 The fact that this is a Batman game saves the story,but I dont really like the fact that theres some plot twists in the story.There are a couple different storys in the game,depending on which villain you have to find.The storys in the game seems like there all just cartoon episode,because again,Batman is dealing with the Joker,and the Joker has kidnapped a small child,Poison Ivy has poisoned I think the Mayor,and storys like that.Long story short,the storys that are in the game seem like they have been taken out of the cartoon.
Fun factor:8/10 How fun is this game?well,that depends,if your a person who doesnt get mad easily,you will find this game very fun,but if your a person like me,you will find this game just plain fun,but not very fun.I think this game delivers lots of fun gameplay,but the difficulty somewhat bogs the fun factor down a little bit.I think that the fun factor is the biggest part of a video game,and this game is pretty fun.The fact that you can handcuff villains,and blind them is pretty cool.I think that Batman: Vengeance is a very fun game,but it does get a bit repetitive if you have already beaten it.
Replay value:5/0 If you have already beaten Batman: Vengeance,but you didnt get all the ''envelopes'',you might go throgh the game agian.Once you have gotten all the envelopes,and have tested all the secret stuff out,you will most likely not play through the game again,since there is nothing else to do.I gave the reaplay value a five because the only unlockable thing is the envelopes that contain stuff like infinite health,and infinite items/weapons.
Difficulty:10/10 You could literally destroy your Gamecube console because this game is so hard.The first couple of levels arent really much of a challenge,but the later levels are.In some levels,there are so many enemys,to where you dont stand a chance.Some of the boss fights arent really hard at all,but I'd say that the Mr. Freeze fight is the hardest.What I hated most about the dificulty,(I mentioned it before in this review) was the fact that if your far in the level,and you lose,you have to start from either the beginning of the level,or far from where you were. Please people,do not take the difficulty level as a joke. The only thing easy about this game,is that its not hard to find your destination.
Visuals:9/10 Sound:10/10 Gameplay:7/10 Story:9/10 Fun factor:8/10 Replay value:5/10 Difficulty:10/10
Best feature:Great graphics,and outstanding voice acting.
Worst feature:TOO DAMN HARD!!
Also try:Batman Returns on SNES.
Final statement: Despite the fact that this game will nearly make you break stuff,its still a good game.
Overall score:8 out of 10.

absolutely awesome!, 29 November 2001
Author: MichaelM24 from California
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
to the animated series, with all the same actors and actresses providing
voices, and original music that sounds as if it's right out of the show.
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
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.

My Favorite Fighting Game Ever!!!, 12 January 2002
Author: Lucas White (firstname.lastname@example.org) from Erwin, TN
Batman: Vengeance on Playstation 2 is a beautifully dark, computer
trip in the unparalleled world of Timm and Dini's Animated Batman. The
story is superior to that of nearly every movie that I've ever seen. The
voice-acting is top-notch just as it was it the Batman: The Animated
because they have all the original voice actors! Kevin Conroy, Mark
Diane Pershing, Michael Ansara, Efrem Zimbalist, and Bob Hasting all
for perhaps the final stand for the Animated Batman saga.
This is my favorite fighting game ever and definitely the best Batman game. At 60 fps, you can see the Playstation 2 at its best. Also, the original music is good enough to warrant a soundtrack. Batman: Vengeance is a dream come true for all fans of Batman The Animated Series!

mmmm.... yummy, 23 January 2002
Author: dumfuk69 from Minnesota
Before I get into everything that I love about this game, I want to get my
problems with it out of the way. First of all... the music was alright..
but I missed Danny Elfman's theme from the animated series. it was
to be found. I can understand that it was probably missing because of
licensing issues or something like that, but I still would have much
had it than the music that was there. my other big problem was the design
of the joker... when batman the animated series first came out the joker
looked fine. he actually had eyes, and his red lips. then he got
redesigned when the show moved from the fox network to the wb saturday
morning lineup along with all the other characters. while I liked all of
the other redesigns I did not like the joker's at all. he has empty eyes
for some reason. and his lips aren't red. and something about his hair
doesn't look right at all. then when batman beyond: return of the joker
came out, they again redesigned the joker for the flashback scene. this
my favorite animated design of the joker yet, and when I saw him in this
game I was disappointed to see that they instead used the first
it just doesn't look right to me.
other than that, this game was amazing. the plot drives the plot of the last two live action movies into the ground. the voice talent is the same from the cartoon which was great.. especially kevin conroy, michael ansara and mark hamill. these guys really bring the characters to life in a way that I don't think any other voice actor could. the controls are simple enough to understand and use. I would have liked a few more gadgets in batman's arsenal, and the sound effect for the batgrapple just wasn't right. it was just kind of a "click" and that was it... in the cartoon it has more of a punch to it. these are just a few minor gripes... nothing that really kept me from enjoying the game. two things that almost did were the length and the challenge. it felt like it ended too abruptly and it was pretty easy for the most part. I would have liked a few more in depth hand to hand boss battles. oh well.. all in all I LOVED this game and I can strongly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of batman. I played the gamecube version, so I'm not sure how other versions may compare.

Great Game!, 18 February 2005
Author: makev from Finland
Yes a great game. As you can see when you go and look at the other
comments that people loved this game. I did. Anyway. If you love the
animated series you are gonna love this game. The graphics are good.
Its weird. Its 3d but its still looks like the animated series. Very
nicely done. Character voices are brilliant. It really has the same
feeling as the animated series. Because of the character voices the
cool graphics. I think that the game is very true to the series. It
also has nice and hard missions. I think the game play is pretty good,
but the camera isn't perfect. But in most games cameras are never
I love the game! The End!

Eesh! A horrible, horrible game., 27 November 2004
Author: Shawn Watson (email@example.com) from The Underverse
Man alive, is this game bad or what? The graphics are way below par,
even if it were on a playstation 1, never mind a Gamecube. The gameplay
is pathetic and the camera movements disorientating. What a worthless
I totally love Warner's Batman animation and it's cool that they do all the games in this way. Batman: Vengeance could well have turned out great as they got off to a good start by keeping all the Gothic visuals and voice actors but they seriously stumbled when it came to playability and graphics. The result is a boring game that looks incredibly cheap and is no fun to play whatsoever. I really must stress how bad the graphics are. Don't let the color schemes fool you. I've seen better stuff on a Commodore 64.
