Kemco invites you to venture out for the Gotham City nightlife in Batman: Dark Tomorrow for your Nintendo GameCube.
The name DC Comics has always been synonymous with two heroes: Superman and Batman. While Superman has a squeaky-clean image and Boy Scout attitude, Batman dishes out grittier street justice for the antihero in all of us.
As luck would have it, Batman's greatest enemies have escaped from Arkham Asylum and are running amuck through Gotham City. You must hunt down all before chaos engulfs the city.
The Dark Knight Returns
Batman has starred in videogames on nearly every console from the NES on up. Most developers have opted for a straightforward kick-and-punch approach to the Dark Knight.
The talented developers at Kemco have opted to tap into Batman's detective background, favoring stealth over flashy bravado. In Dark Tomorrow, gamers finally get the chance to put all of Batman's gadgets and skills to good use.
Everything but the Bat-Shark Repellant
Right from the beginning, you have full access to Batman's famous utility belt. Batman manages to fit Batarangs, a Bat cable, Bat cuffs, Bat grapple, a finger light, medical kit, night vision goggles, smoke capsules and a universal tool on a single belt. Wouldn't it be great to have this guy pack for your next camping trip?
Your Bat cable will come in handy when climbing buildings and traversing lengthy gaps. When used with the Bat grapple, your Bat cable will grant you access to just about any area within view.
Out of Sight
Batman's black and gray costume is great for working the midnight shift. You can often avoid unnecessary combat by sticking to the shadows. Batman can enter stealth mode by hugging the wall and peeking around corners.
Much like a bat's sonar, Batman comes equipped with an on-screen radar which he can use to detect unfriendly company.
When Push Comes to Shove
While it's to your benefit to stick to the shadows, sometimes you'll find yourself in situations where you have no choice but to fight. Thankfully, Batman is a master of several martial arts and can put together some fairly painful kick/punch combos. Make sure to Bat-cuff a downed opponent or you'll run the risk of having to fight them again later on.
Developers have to be careful when creating a game based on a popular comic book license. It's easy to stray too far from the source material and lose what makes the character popular in the first place.
Kemco has done right by hiring veteran Batman scribe Scott Peterson to develop the story for Batman: Dark Tomorrow. He is joined by Final Fantasy legend Kenji Terada. Together, they have crafted a faithful Batman tale of mystery and deception.
The terrific soundtrack, performed by London's The Royal Philharmonic, truly sets the tone for the entire game. Between action sequences, Hollywood-quality cut-scenes lay out the story in tremendous detail. These beautiful cinematic sequences were put together by seasoned movie professionals Takafumi Yuki and Terrence Masson, whose credits include Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, Batman Forever and True Lies.
A Better Tomorrow
Kemco has done the Batman license proud by crafting a gripping detective crime story. An excellent mix of action and stealth makes Batman: Dark Tomorrow a premier superhero title on the Nintendo GameCube.
