  • Batman the Animated Series was quite possibly the best thing Batman ever released. It just

  • understood what Batman is and supposed to be and got that feel down. Batman should be

  • dark and few things showed this better than the Animated Series. And Batman: Vengeance

  • tries to do just that.

  • The game is actually set in the universe of the follow-up to the Animated Series, called

  • the New Batman Adventures. The game has the art style down. From the look of the characters,

  • to the gadgets, and even Gotham City itself. It’s great to see this art direction come

  • to life, and it really feels like the cartoon. It even has Kevin Conroy doing the voice of

  • Batman, a great touch to make the game feel complete with one of the best Batman’s out

  • there.

  • The game is broken down into separate sections, that feel like separate episodes, even down

  • to each having a separate title that falls right in line with others from the series.

  • Each episode features a separate villain with there being the Joker, Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze,

  • and Poison Ivy. Each has their own diabolical plot of how to make Gotham their own, and

  • it is up to Batman to stop them.

  • The levels are fairly straightforward, with a mostly linear route for Batman to take.

  • It’s the getting from point A to B is where the fun is. As you could imagine, Batman comes

  • with plenty of different moves and gadgets that he will use to stop the villains. He

  • can use his cape to glide to different areas, and also use his full arsenal of gadgets.

  • Batman has batarangs, and his Batgrapple, and Bat-Launcher to deal with the environment

  • and enemies. Bad guys and henchmen are everywhere and are waiting for the world’s greatest

  • detective. Batman has a full array of moves that help with the combat. After you knock

  • an enemy down, you have to handcuff them or they will get back up later. The only problem

  • is, you only have so many handcuffs, so expect to fight the literal same enemies again and

  • again.

  • And one thing that is disappointing are the levels. While they are big and open, they

  • all feel very empty, and not very detailed. Textures are completely smooth and open area

  • are left feeling blank, taking you away from the great location of Gotham City. And while

  • Batman has many moves, the combat feels repetitive quickly and becomes tiresome.

  • While all the elements for a great Batman game are here, they just don’t come together

  • perfectly, leaving the appearance of Batman, but one that is not very deep.

Batman the Animated Series was quite possibly the best thing Batman ever released. It just
