Batman: Vengeance

Batman: Vengeance is an action-packed hunt for the Joker and company through the mean streets of Gotham City, as inspired by the Warner Bros cartoon show. The 3D visual and audio style is topnotch, and the cinemas are a blast - even if some camera views are awkward and some areas are a little too dark and muddy.

The workmanlike controls take some pain out of manoeuvring the cam and manage the energetic, er. com-Bat nicely. You nimbly flip between third-person and first-person action, and Batman displays some cool moves, including long gliding leaps using his cape and an awesome skydiver-like freefall. Basic hand-to-hand fighting consists of just simple, two-button jamming for kick and punch, but there are a few combos and power moves. The first-person action is more versatile, using a Bat arsenal that includes the Bat-grapple and, of course, Batarangs.

There's much to praise about the effort behind this rough-hewn but imaginative game. If you're a fan, you might tackle this tale of the Dark Knight with a vengeance.
