Batman: The Brave and the Bold oozes personality, bringing a lot of the cartoon show's wit and humor to the portable system. The short length makes it a tough sell, but it is a top-notch experience regardless. If you're in the market for an excellent side-scrolling action game on your DS, then Batman: The Brave and the Bold is worth the price of admission, even if it is a bit short.

Alles in allem bin ich echt positiv gestimmt. Ich hatte mir nicht viel erwartet und bin im Nachhinein echt überrascht. „Batman: The Brave and the Bold“ ist ein rundum gelungenes Nintendo DS-Spiel für alle Altersgruppen!

It should be made known that this DS version of Batman: The Brave and the Bold is definitely not some stripped down version of its Wii counterpart in any shape or form. While the game's increased emphasis on platforming does set it apart from the full scale beat 'em up gameplay of the Wii release, it's every bit as much fun to play and, in some ways, even more smoothly playable. The game's lower level of difficulty and rather short main quest might turn off some gamers looking for a bit more meat on the bone, but for those who just want a fun platforming ride with plenty of action and some amazing boss fights, look no further than this rather entertaining DS adventure.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold is the all-ages equivalent of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Where Arkham Asylum made Batman a legitimate gaming character for adults, The Brave and the Bold does the same for younger players. It may not be a ground-breaking Game of the Year contender like Batman’s last game, but it’s as solid of a portable side-scroller as I’ve played in a long time. The bright, friendly version of Batman may not be who I think of when I think of Batman, but for many kids out there, this is about as good as an introduction to the character as you could hope for.

Batman's latest adventure is a good, but short yarn on DS. It would have been nice to see more variety in the levels and to have the guest characters used in more interesting ways, but it's a solid game nonetheless. If you've been itching for a good Batman game, give this one a go. It won't last long, but it's satisfying.

The Brave and the Bold is a very good realization of the animated series. The action doesn't stray far from genre staples, but smooth controls and an empowering upgrade system make you feel like Gotham's favorite superhero by the time the ending credits roll. You should be able to get through the story mode and most of the challenges in about five hours, but it's still fun to replay levels just to mess around with your impressive gadgets or try to take down the bosses without getting hit. It would have been nice to have a bit more difficulty in the story levels, but everything else in this package is really well done. The Brave and the Bold is a refreshing take on beat-'em-ups, using eye-catching style and smooth combat to keep things enjoyable until you bring peace to Gotham once more.

Batman: The Brave And The Bold si rivela un prodotto più che valido. Graziato da una buona realizzazione tecnica e da un gameplay semplice, ma ben confezionato, il gioco è sicuramente consigliato a tutti i fan dell’uomo pipistrello. Inoltre le sue oleate meccaniche a metà strada tra il platform e il picchiaduro a scorrimento, faranno sicuramente la gioia dei tanti appassionati del genere o dei nostalgici ancora fermi all’epoca dei 16-bit. Purtroppo la produzione è affetta da una longevità fin troppo scarsa. Certo, la qualità è fuori discussione, ma l’acquisto va attentamente valutato in quanto, purtroppo, un paio di pomeriggi di gioco intenso sono più che sufficienti per scoprire anche l’anfratto più nascosto della Bat-Caverna.

Wayforward Technologies has managed to successfully craft a fine one-player character-switching platform adventure that proves to be fun for all; not only fans of the cartoon show, but fans of the genre in general. If only the game did not end so soon!

A refreshingly bright and breezy take on the Batman universe that is well worth investigating, but it won't take long to bat grapple hook your way through.

The Brave and the Bold bietet sowohl auf Konsole als auch Handheld kurzweilige Jump'n'Fight-Action in schmuckem Cartoon-Look. Während die Wii-Version mit facettenreicherer Prügelkost und Koop-Modus punktet, glänzt die DS-Fassung mit abwechslungsreicherem Leveldesign und interessanteren Bossfights. [...] Die DS-Helden beherrschen zwar auch ein paar Brocken Deutsch, bleiben erzählerisch aber völlig blass und belanglos. Beim Umfang lassen wiederum beide arg zu wünschen übrig: Nach ein paar Stunden hat man quasi alles gesehen, wobei der Story-Vorhang auf dem DS deutlich früher fällt, Handheld-Spieler aber wesentlich mehr Bonus-Herausforderungen serviert bekommen. Das Sammeln, Aufrüsten und Einsetzen diverser Gadgets weiß hingegen in beiden Versionen zu gefallen,[...]. Unterm Strich hatte ich mit beiden Umsetzungen in etwa gleich viel Spaß. [...]. Wer hingegen lieber solo durch abwechslungsreiche 2D-Welten turnt, sollte sich den DS-Batman zulegen.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold misses a few beats, but the overall composition is wholly loveable. Unfortunately, it’s also obscenely short. Once it’s over, you’ll want more, and though the unlockable challenges add a little bit of life to the experience, they don’t quite make the ends meet. I recommend that any and all Batman fans check this one; just keep in mind that the value of the package doesn’t match up well with the asking price. The game’s bold and it’s brave, but it’s also too short.

Overall, Batman: The Brave and the Bold is a little too short and simplistic to guarantee any mass appeal, but I got a kick out of its family-friendly approach to Batman and his DC brethren. The slick presentation and intuitive combat controls make this one of the more surprising Batman titles of the last few years; I just wish there was more content to play around with and the game design was more complex in general.

Bien que la version DS de Batman L'Alliance des Héros soit très agréable à parcourir, on reprochera aux développeurs d'avoir copié/collé les bonnes idées au fil des niveaux. Du coup, la progression est rigoureusement identique d'un stage à l'autre, seul l'aspect graphique venant rompre la monotonie de l'aventure. Dommage, tout comme la faible durée de vie, d'autant qu'on s'amuse en jouant au titre de WayForward qui dispose de graphismes maîtrisés et d'une bonne jouabilité. Au final, on conseillera le soft aux amoureux de la série animée, très atypique dans son style visuel, qui retrouveront là tout le charme désuet du programme en plus d'un chouette petit beat'em all qui aurait méritait un peu plus d'ambition.

Malheureusement, le titre de WayForward s'avère également toujours aussi court et il ne faudra guère plus de quatre heures à un joueur averti pour torcher l'ensemble. Pour les possesseurs de la version Wii, une option permettra de connecter une DS à sa console de salon et d'aider un ami en contrôlant l'horripilant Batmite. Ce dernier pourra alors lancer divers bonus à ses collègues ainsi que des bombes et des enclumes à la face des ennemis, pour une expérience de jeu guère convaincante. Seul le mode défis tentera de sauver les meubles en proposant, entre autres, d'affronter les différents boss du jeu à la suite ou encore de survivre à plusieurs vagues d'ennemis déchainés. A 30 euros, c'est toujours ça de pris pour les fans de l'homme chauve-souris.

Si la version Wii était globalement sympathique malgré ses quelques défauts, le constat est tout autre sur Nintendo DS. Ainsi, Batman bénéficie d'un plus grand nombre de gadgets mais l'aventure développée par Wayforward donne un arrière goût d'inachevé. La complémentarité du duo de super héros était une bonne idée mais la durée de vie alliée à l'absence totale de difficulté, aussi bien en termes de level-design que des fameux Boss fights, propulse tout droit ce volet DS dans la catégorie des jeux prometteurs qui au final déçoivent. A réserver aux fans les plus jeunes !
