Zzap! (Nov, 1989)
Easy to get into, and messing around with the batrope is brilliant. Five superb levels of gradually increasing toughness. The movie-of-the-year gets the game it deserves.
Batman comes across as appropriately darkly sinister. Both horizontally scrolling vehicle sections are superbly drawn and animated, and the sound in general is great. A must buy.
The gameplay is highly addictive with enough variety to satisfy the most demanding Batfan. Batman is definitely the best film tie-in yet. If you enjoyed the film, make sure you don't miss the game
Commodore Format (Nov, 1991)
This is great stuff. The graphics are spinky, sprites are spanky, and gameplay is sponky.
Commodore User (Nov, 1989)
A really good game and a very well thought out conversion.
Games Preview (Jan, 1989)
Grafikken er god, varieret og frem for alt tegneserieagtig, mens lyden også er ganske velprogrammeret. Selve gameplayet er fængslende, selvom det må indrømmes, at Batman er mere adventure end arcade. Men problemerne er, for de flestes vedkommende, hverken ulogiske eller unødvendigt svære, og alt i alt er 64-versionen ret vellykket.
A tune plays throughout, but is nothing more than a parody of the Batman tune. In game effects are nice, not brilliant, but nice. Quite a fun game but, to my mind, not nearly as good as the first one. Nice packaging, though.
64'er (Jan, 1990)
Batman ist eine einigermaßen gelungene Umsetzung des gleichnamigen Kinofilms. Auch wenn die Handlung zwangsläufig nicht gerade die originellste ist, wird das Spiel jedem fanatischen Fledermaus-Fan doch die eine oder andere Minute glorienreicher Erinnerung an den heißgeliebten Kultfilm bescheren. Grafisch und musikalisch ist das Spiel nicht gerade als Highlight der C64-Geschichte zu bezeichnen.
Fazit: BATMAN - THE MOVIE ist ein ordentlich produzierter Cocktail mit einem Mix aus verschiedenen bereits schon mal dagewesenen Games-Elementen. Dennoch: Die Grafik. das Scrolling, die Atmosphäre (BATMAN reizt doch irgendwie schon...) und der hervorragende Sound machen aus dieser OCEAN-Titel sicherlich einer Verkaufsschlager. Gegen einen Hitstern spricht das teilweise nicht gerade umwerfende Gameplay und die bisweilen unpräzise Steuerung. Trotz allem ein Programm, das von sich reden machen - und die Charts im Sturm erobern wird! Beileibe kein BADMAN.
Power Play (Nov, 1989)
Ich habe schon schlechtere Film-Umsetzungen gesehen, doch ohne das Batman-Logo auf dem Cover würde wohl kaum einer von diesem Mittelmaß-Spiel Kenntnis nehmen. Der Aufkleber, den man in der Packung findet, ist wohl als Trostpflästerchen für den mangelnden Spielwitz zu verstehen. Der Kauf des Programms lohnt sich nur für Fans des Films.
Your Commodore (Dec, 1989)
With the films success behind it the game cannot fail. However, under the hype, costume and drama it is simply a shoot-em-up with two platform game elements and, in level 3, a Mastermind.
If one has an Amiga and loves action games, this can be a very enjoyable game. Due to the frequent lock-ups and freezes on the C-64, however, that version cannot be recommended (even to Commodore owners). Data East has come much closer to producing the look and feel of the Batman genre with Batman than they did with Batman: The Caped Crusader. Now, we can await the game and movie sequels, with their new storylines and villains
