on the animated television show The New Adventures of Batman,
Ubi Soft's Batman: Vengeance is an artistically produced action/adventure
game starring the world-famous caped crusader. After playing
the less-than-stellar Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker for
Nintendo 64, we were admittedly a bit apprehensive about the
Dark Knight's debut on Nintendo GameCube. Would Batman: Vengeance
use its excellent license to create an engrossing gameplay experience,
or would it use its license as an excuse to make a sub-par game?
After only five minutes in front of the television, we're pleased
and relieved to report that Batman: Vengeance is surprisingly
good and true to its animated roots.
