Just before I start this: No. This is not like Batman Arkham City or Asylum. I'm not saying it's bad, but don't expect the "Arkham before Arkham" (Yes, it does have an Arkham area, but it's NOT Arkham City/Asylum.) Now that I set that record straight, Lets get on to the review. Gameplay: Basic- Sneak around, interact with objects to make the grunts terrified, Grunts fear= they get weaker. (Example, throw a batarang at a bell, goons become scared, goons get weaker from fear, pummel goons' skulls.) The fear mechanic is cool and I think it's unique compared to other Batman games. Oh yeah, some bat mobile missions, too. Bat mobile sections are fun, chaotic and HARD! Music: I can't say much... there are some tracks from the movie, but I think that's it. It's hard to comment about something that you don't remember much about. The music isn't very memorable, but maybe it's just me. Graphics: This actually looks impressive for a gamecube game. It's not pushing limits of the gamecube but it looks good. (I haven't played PS2 or Xbox version, so note that I'm talking about the gamecube version.) Difficulty: Oh jeez... This game Is HARD. The first few stages aren't that hard but the later stages are difficult. Maybe I just suck but...if you aren't good at video games don't buy this. The hardest stages for me, are the bat mobile stages. They are fun, but like I said: They. Are. HARD. Lasting appeal: This game is fun but short. I would recommend this to big Batman fans that want to kill 10 bucks, but if not, just ignore it. It's still a fun game, though.
Batman is ALWAYS a good idea.
Batman Begins, though based loosely off of a movie, is an action packed game from beginning to end. It isn't Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, but this game is still a great play. It's probably the first Batman video game where you use stealth and scare tactics to make your way through levels and to defeat your enemies. That's what Batman is all about. Overall, this is a really great game, and if you have a Gamecube or a Wii, pick it up because it's a steal at this price!
Batman Begins is a very awesome game where you can scare the beegebees out of people. Yes I'm serious.
The Greatest Action Game of All Time
I have been playing this game since it came out back in 2005 and it is the best action/adventure game out there for any console.
It has an amazing storyline and its not like Arkham Asylum where it is like a horror movie that is crazy. This is a classic batman without all of the garbage. Every mission is fun-filled, plus there's weapons!!!
I have played it over the years with my brother and it has created many memories. This game is the best action game of all time in my opinion.
This is the best Batman game that I have played so far. What makes this game good is that, unlike most movie based superheros games, it sticks very close to the storyline. It does not have five different villians you have to fight in order before you get to the boss. It has the same amount of villians in this game as there was in the movie. The video game also captures how batman acts in the movie. All in all, very well done game.
Great Batman game for all!
Next to Arkham Asylum this is the best Batman game. Even though it is based off the movie it doesnt follow it exactly. The game allows you to go deeper into the story and do missions that actually make sense to the story. The fighting is great, the animation is awsome, the levels are dark and cool. Overall this is a great game to buy. It is a game for young adults and up. Even though it is Batman they do touch on the darker side of the Dark Knight.
Best batman game on gamecube.
this game is awsome on gamecube, better then batman vengence,but batman arkhan asylum is 10 times better then this.
This is by far my favorite batman game next to batman arkham asylum. Batman has awsome moves and the campain is awsome!! This is defenitly an A++ game!!!!
great bat man game!!!!!!!!!!
this is a great bat man game because bat man has some good moves and bat mans car has some cool weapons and the missions are cool to and thats why i think this is a great bat man game.
THE BEST GAME EVER
This game is beast. It's better than any game I've ever bought. It has cooler gadgets and better gameplay. In order to fight people, you have to scare the guys and then beat them up. It's pretty long, but if you're really good at it, you could finish a couple levels in a day. It has pretty good graphics for a Gamecube game and it's controls are pretty easy to use. The sound is pretty ok, but it could do better. The gameplay is great! It's difficult to understant at first if you're not good at stealth games, but it's pretty good. The challenge is like 10 out of 10. Like I said before, you have to scare people to fight them. It's pretty difficult to do it sometimes, but it's mad funny watching the reaction of the thugs. All in all, this is te best game for anyone even if they don't like Batman.
