The game had fairly simple missions with basic powers at your disposal You could do simple punches and kicks, and you had plenty of Batman tools and gear to use. A lot of gamers claimed that the first-person view in some of the areas became too frustrating.

In the end Batman: Vengeance received a rather mixed reaction. It seemed Batman fans were split in between liking and hating the game. What seemed to be universally praised was the story and cut-scenes which were done by the same folks behind the awesome cartoon series. Regardless of personal opinion, it seems Batman: Vengeance will be forgotten especially after the legacy of the Arkham series.
