A hero is born, in this interactive adaptation of Christopher Nolan's 2005 comics-inspired cinema. Based directly on the movie, the Batman Begins video games are designed to allow players to discover the Batman as for the first time, by exploring the roles of both young Bruce Wayne and his fledgling alter ego.
In addition to the combat one would expect from any adventure featuring the grim hero, gameplay involves exploration and stealth. Batman's famous utility belt comes into play, as different gadgets allow him to reach remote areas, survey situations from a safe location, and unleash surprise attacks. The film spotlights its heavy-duty interpretation of the Batmoblie, as well, and the highly versatile vehicle is featured in the game's combat racing sequences.
Game characters are designed to look like their silver-screen counterparts and are voiced by the actors featured in the film, including Christian Bale as the dark hero, Liam Neeson as mentor Henri Ducard, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, and Cillian Murphy as Dr. Jonathan Crane. Unlike earlier Batman games of the 128-bit generation, Batman Begins is published by Electronic Arts. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
