This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Batman as he attempts to stop an uprising within a prison. Players explore the prison, rescue hostages, and use punches, kicks, and gadgets (e.g., explosive gel, Batarangs) to defeat gun-wielding thugs in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by cries of pain, realistic gunfire, and slow-motion effects. Still-image cutscenes also depict violence: a villain shooting a civilian off-screen; a villain impaling a henchman with an umbrella. Cutscenes depict small splashes of blood when villains are shot/injured. During the course of the game, the camera occasionally pans on a female character's posterior; other sequences contain suggestive innuendo (e.g., a female character licking her lips and saying “What if I make you an offer you can't refuse...?”). Some scenes depict characters smoking cigars/cigarettes. The words “b*tch,” “a*s,” and “bastard” are heard in the game.
