Your Amiga (Jun, 1989)
Batman features some very nice animation and graphics, as well as a respectable array of sound effects. The music is an '90 remix of the TV series theme which, although well done, does grate after a while (thank God you can switch it out). All in all a damn good game. I look forward to Ocean's next one.
The One (Dec, 1988)
Once again the Amiga conversion is practically identical to the ST, with one notable exception - the soundtrack. This may seem like a fairly cosmetic difference, but just wait until you hear the classic Batman theme tune bursting from your monitor in glorious remixed stereo. It may not be to everyone's taste but it's certainly given an 80's feel to the classic.
Amiga Action (Jan, 1991)
Do battle with two of Batman's most deadly adversaries. Guide Batman around the Penguin's and Joker's hideouts, collecting and using a selection of objects to get to the big bosses themselves.
The Games Machine (UK) (May, 1989)
The Dark Knight returns to 16-bit. Graphic definition is identical to that on the ST but colours are subtler. The Batman music remix uses some nice sounds and with a few sampled sound effects, the soundtrack is very effective. This is the best presented version yet of this comic license.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Mar, 1989)
Gerade die jetzt eingetroffene Amiga-Fassung erzeugt eine herrliche Comic-Atmosphäre und bietet gegenüber den 8-Bit-Fassungen einiges an zusätzlichen, gut gestylten Grafiken. Sie sind übrigens nahezu identisch mit den ST-Grafiken dieses Spiels, hätten aber nach meinem Geschmack etwas kontrastreicher angelegt werden können. Auch der Sound klingt etwas dünne, weil zu monoton, aber die Spriteanimation geht in Ordnung. BATMAN ist somit auch für den Amiga ein äußerst unterhaltsames Spielchen.
Compute's Amiga Resource (Dec, 1989)
I have two other complaints: There is no pause button, and it's too easy to move accidentally to the status screen while fighting enemy thugs. Other than these complaints, Batman, The Caped Crusader is a great graphics adventure.
Amiga User International (May, 1989)
All in all, Batman will please arcade adventurers and is only let down by its lack of a save option, though I still think there is more potential for a more arcade orientated Bat-game.
Amiga Computing (Jun, 1989)
The most serious fault is that The Caped Crusader is unsure of what type of game it wants to be. It is a cross between an arcade adventure, a good old platforms and ladders and a beat-' em-up. It doesn't really work.
