Great for teens!

I got this game for my son about 2 years ago and he still loves it now, I play it with him. Mostly violence is the issue and some brief cussing here and there but this is a great teen game, Voice and graphics are incredible for a PS2. This is a great game for teens.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The game is easy to pick up and play, but still offers plenty of excitement. There are multiple levels and a variety of scenes ranging from the Wayne Manor to abandoned warehouses. You unlock bonuses as you complete levels, such as interviews with the movie cast. The characters in the game look and sound like the characters in the movie, and the game includes the voices of actors including Liam Neeson.

It's worth noting that Batman is a dark character, and while there is no blood or death (Batman actually defeats many of his enemies by scaring them), the fighting system allows you to punch and kick your enemy with force, and you'll do just enough damage to temporarily disable them. This makes the game a better choice for teens, especially fans of the series who will get the most out of playing as the Caped Crusader.
