Generally there won't be any problems when piloting your way across Gotham City, but just as you get into the zone, you turn a corner and the camera jerks to a different view, and you are reminded that you are only playing a game. I would recommend Batman: Dark Tomorrow as a good game to rent, but unless you have a lot of time on your hands, most likely you won't make it extremely far before you are forced to return it.
Mich persönlich störte vor allem die Kameraführung, da außer mit einem Blick durch das Nachtsichtgerät oder beim Anvisieren der Gegner mit einem Batarang die Perspektive nicht geändert werden kann. Möglicherweise hatten die Entwickler auch die Absicht, wie etwa bei Resident Evil, die Spannung dadurch zu steigern. Der Spaßfaktor leidet darunter allerdings ungemein. Dass auch der zweite Teil technisch nicht überzeugen kann, ist mir vollkommen unverständlich, da der Release dieses Spiels immer wieder verschoben wurde. Die Entwickler hatten wirklich mehr als genügend Zeit gehabt, um die restlichen technischen Fehler auszumerzen.
Wir hatten so viel Hoffnung, aber Kemcos Action-Adventure kann sich im Fazit nur durch eine bombastische Präsentation knapp über die 50%-Marke retten. Leider nur für absolute Batman-Liebhaber mit viel Geduld und Nerven zu empfehlen.
In short, Batman: Dark Tomorrow is designed to appeal to hardcore Batman fans who will trudge through all the flaws in search of the fantastic story. If seeing our masked hero confront his greatest foes in an arduous trek through Arkham Asylum doesn’t get your blood pumping, stay far away. Dark Tomorrow brings plenty of good ideas to the table, but without its superb presentation, it’s just a miserably failed experiment in realistic physics and ambiguous mission design.
The Dark Knight gets his wings clipped in his latest Cube adventure.
Game Over Online
Where to begin? My instinctual inclination is to come out swinging, describing in excruciating detail the numerous travesties laden throughout every square inch of this brutal car-wreck of a game entitled Batman: Dark Tomorrow. But I’m not going to do that. I will say this though, I feel as if developer Kemco hates me. Why else would they conspire to create a game that portrays my favorite DC character in such an unflattering and downright retarded light, the likes of which have never before been witnessed? Screw it, this is the worst Batman game ever made, and god help you should you be unfortunate enough to somehow come into possession of it. God help us all.

Batman: Dark Tomorrow was an important title for Kemco to establish itself as a legitimate publisher of A-list titles. If this is the fruit of the company's efforts, they should have been content with releasing just another Top Gear game or perhaps dusted off Kid Clown's giant red shoes for another run. Instead players are graced with yet another superhero game destined for the bargain bin.
Batman: Dark Tomorrow was first shown as a GameCube-exclusive title at E3 2001, and it suffered a number of delays along the way. Now that the game is finally available, it's pretty safe to say that everyone concerned would have been better off if it had been delayed even longer. Die-hard Batman fans might enjoy the story behind the game, but the actual experience of playing Batman: Dark Tomorrow is so awful that avoiding the game altogether is the best course of action.
Après avoir pollué la Xbox, Dark Tomorrow vient tourmenter les batfans sur GameCube. Quelle déception, Batman ne méritait pas ça. Si récemment Spider-Man a su nous étonner, Kemco nous signe là l'une des plus abominables adaptation de comics depuis le Superman de la N64 et ce n'est pas la présence de quelques super vilains fameux qui changera la donne. Hop, poubelle.
Some people will wear this titles shortcomings like a badge of honor, the videogame equivalent of an “I played Batman: Dark Tomorrow and lived to tell about it” T-shirt. Others will be willing to endure its flaws in order to experience the quality story. However, it is hard to imagine the majority of gamers fighting past more then the first few levels before searching for brighter tomorrows.
Batman Dark Tomorrow est disponible sur tous les supports pour que tout le monde profite de ce hit. Kemco arrive à transcender son magnifique Universal Studios en faisant aussi bien voire pire. Décidement ni sur N64 ni sur GC, Batman ne parviendra à trouver sa place au soleil.
The crappiness of the game is apparent from the get go, and I would suggest spending your hard earned money on any game but this one, because I wouldn’t even suggest this game to my most hated enemy, or even the most hardcore of Batman fans. If you do purchase this game, then I only have one alternative for you other than suicide. Check yourself into a mental institution and hopefully all those “happy” drugs will beat some sense into your peanut sized brain.
Game Informer Magazine
The beginning of the game showcases the finest of craftsmanship within its pre-rendered cinematics, orchestrated score, and attention to recreating the details from the comic book series. Unfortunately, once gameplay commences, Dark Tomorrow shows just how dark it can be. Saying that it’s mostly unplayable almost seems like too kind of a gesture. The action that unfolds is so incomprehensible and littered with bugs that you can’t help but wonder if your GameCube or television is on the fritz.
Batman: Dark Tomorrow is a study in poorly conceived, aggravating gameplay and marks yet another failed caper for the caped crusader. Even die-hard fans will want to tie the disc to a Batarang and hurl it out the window. Just hope it doesn't come back.
