Rating: 7/10

Game Company’s Description: Sin Tzu, cunning master of strategy and martial arts, makes history as the first Batman character to debut in a video game. To commemorate this event, DC Comics and Warner Bros. have showcased the talents of veteran scriptwriter Flint Dille and reknown comic book artist, Jim Lee as Sin Tzu’s co-creators and character designers.

Battle the evil forces of Gotham City by yourself or with a friend. Two Players can fight the forces of evil as the Dynamic Duo, Batman and Robin; or choose to control Nightwing or Batgirl!

Battle Batman’s most infamous enemies including Bane, Clayface, Scarecrow and the new formidable foe – Sin Tzu, all appearing for the first time in a videogame.

Utilize Batman’s arsenal such as the Batarang, Grappling Hook, and Smoke Bombs.

Topple Sin Tzu’s soldiers of crime with more than 35 martial arts moves and combos.

Defend Gotham City through the Gotham City Docks, Crime Alley, and Arkham Asylum.

Look: Graphics were based on the cartoon series and they are very good.

Feel: Like many of the Batman releases in the past this one is pretty simple. That is great for kids who want to become the superhero. On top of playing Batman you can also be Robin, Batgirl and Nightwing. Each character has their strengths and weakness and you can use that to your advantage when it comes to completing certain areas of the game.

One problem is that it seems there is a use of the same enemies over and over. Also you can get new moves, but they don’t really deliver as much of a punch as you would hope.

Hear: The voice acting helps the game and it’s sense of being a cartoon that you can control. It’s absolutely wonderful for the kids who watch the show. The music is mostly background music that you barely even notice.

Frankly: The history of Batman games is laden with good and bad games. This one falls somewhere in the middle.
