Batman & Robin is the name of two console video games based on DC Comics' Batman, one for the PlayStation, the other for the Game.com. The PlayStation game was developed by Probe Entertainment and published by Acclaim Entertainment in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics. The Game.com game was developed and published by Tiger Electronics. Both games are based on the 1997 film of the same name.

Gameplay

The PlayStation game uses elements of a Sandbox style game, such as real time events, traffic simulation and civilian population. The player can choose one of the film's three heroes, Batman, Robin or Batgirl. Each character uses a unique vehicle. Batman drives the Batmobile, Robin the Redbird motorcycle and Batgirl uses the Batblade. In the game, the player travels around Gotham City and completes various individual missions, such as preventing Mr. Freeze from robbing a bank. Most of the events are not triggered, instead each event occurs at a certain time. For example, Mr. Freeze's bank robbery occurs at 7 p.m. The player must find clues and discover the plot with the help of the Batcomputer. If the player cannot find enough clues, the event occurs, failing the mission. Some situations are derived directly from the plot of the film while others were conceived for the game.

Reception

Like the film, The PlayStation game was critically and commercially unsuccessful. IGN noted in their review, "In the end, you'll buy this game only if you're a Batman fanatic, not because it's a good game." They rated it a five out of ten.[3]
