True to the series, but only so-so as a video game.

I got my copy of Batman right after release day.. I've finished the game, but not after almost throwing my PS2 out the window.

The premise for the game itself is confusing - there are 5-6 separate story lines that are supposed to be drawn together by the cinematic sequences between levels. But they bounce back and forth with no explanation.

My second beef is with some of the levels - namely "Gasworks" .. WHAT a pain. I'm all for games that challenge skill level, but jeez.. I spent hours and hours trying to get through this one, and I'm hardly a novice to tough games. This level highlights the fact that the game developers really didn't seem to be going for any type of continuity or intuitive basis for their work.

The game looks great, though, and I hope that they'll continue to develop the series with stuff a little more exciting. It look, felt, and played like Spiderman did for the PS1... we'll see how they do with the next installment.
