Everyone’s favorite hooded vigilante is back, but he’s not better than ever. Or, more precisely, his previous outing with OCEAN. You’re out on a five-level mission to –what else– rid Gotham City of troublesome criminals. The gameplay is a nice combination of four-way scrolling platform and the horizontal-scrolling driving game. Fluid animation and gameplay variety, however, are bogged down beneath the annoying energy bar that can’t be replenished– you’ll suddenly get sent back miles if you run out of energy. The driving section is fun, but there are no cool Batmobile weapons to distinguish the sleek car from crummy Beetles. Fun, but not for long.
