This is an action-adventure game featuring characters and storylines from the Batman universe. Players control Batman through urban environments as he solves crimes, battles thugs, and searches for villains. Players punch, kick, and use fantastical weapons (e.g., electrically charged gloves) to defeat enemies. Some characters use guns against Batman, and the game's multiplayer mode allows players to engage in third-person shooter matches. During murder-investigation scenes, short animations depict various stages of the crimes (e.g., a victim's head slammed onto a table; a character getting shot). A handful of scenes depict corpses on the ground, hanging on walls, or arranged in strange poses; some of these scenes depict bloodstains on the floor. During the course of the game, the camera pans on a villain briefly groping the posterior of a female character. The game depicts drug packets in one scene, and several characters discuss illegal narcotics and drug charges. The words “sh*t,” “a*s,” and “bastard” appear in the dialogue.
