Batman Total Chaos
Turning to the original animated series for inspiration rather than Batman Beyond (after the horrid PS and N64 Beyond games, can you blame 'em?), Digital Eclipse packs in a lot of gameplay while keeping Total Chaos graphically solid. BTC does a nice job of breaking away from the standard side-scrolling model by dropping in driving and flying levels here and there, and while playing as Batgirl offers only mild relief from the belabored punch-and-kick action of The Batman himself, the game keeps you mildly entertained throughout. But more than anything, Total Chaos reminds us that we're all more than ready for GB Advance. The same generic, cheap-suited bad guys keep popping up all through the game, throwing mindless punches or firing the periodic bullet. And getting the sluggish Batso to respond to your commands is very trying. It's tough to tell when and where to use your small array of Bat-items, which will no doubt make this game even more frustrating for novice players, so keep it near the bottom of your GBC to-do list.
