Batman is back on the big screen and in a new video game from those lovable geeks at Electronic Arts! The new Batman Begins movie tells the story of how Batman turned from a normal billionaire into a crimefighting billionaire. And, with the Batman Begins video game for the Gamecube, Playstation 2 and Xbox, you can play through all the ninja-training, crime-fighting action! Here's our review.

Fighting Crime in Batman Begins

The game is basically a big stealth-fest where you sneak around as Batman and beat up villains. You get some serious bat-fu moves for kicking butt, a bunch of bat-gadgets and special moves for the non-fighting stuff. Plus, you can take to the streets in the Batmobile!

Superhero Action in Batman Begins

The serious coolness comes from putting the fear of the bat into the bad guys by sneaking around and doing bizarre stuff until they freak out and panic. Some of the finishing moves make Batman look seriously hardcore and they're great. You can also unlock video clips from the Batman Begins movie as you play and all of the voices are done by the actors from the movie so they sound perfect.

The problem with this video game is that you never get the feeling that you can just cut loose as Batman and do your own cool stuff. All the really cool moves are built-in so you can only do them at special points in the game. The interrogation scenes where Batman scares thugs into spilling the beans are pretty weak too.

Does Batman Begins Save Gotham?

It's not a great game. If you're a huge Batman fan and need to play it, rent it before you buy it. It has some cool Batman moments, but it's more like watching an annoying movie where you get to press buttons occasionally than playing a game.

Batman Begins Thumbs Up:

  • All the voices are done by the actors from the movie.
  • Scare the bad guys with freaky Batman butt-kicking.
  • Batman gadgets and toys.
  • Batman Begins Thumbs Down:

  • You can't cut loose with Batman.
  • It feels like you're watching a movie, not playing a game.
  • Batman Begins Game Rating:

    Depends. For story, probably The Walking Dead. For single player gameplay then probably Skyrim. For multiplayer gameplay, Lego Marvel Superheroes. Yeah I know the last one was aimed at a younger audience but I liked the open-world gameplay and the fact that players could fly around to wherever the hell they wanted, playing as whatever character they wanted to be and they had a choice of whether to stick together or not.
