Editors' reviewThis action-packed screensaver serves up scenes of the Caped Crusader doing what he does best, though it's probably not a good fit for older machines. You might think Batman Begins 3D Screensaver is a Hollywood-sanctioned promotional tool to shill the film of the same name, but it's actually a full-blown action sequence in its own right. During installation, the app attempts to put an extra toolbar on your machine, but you can opt out with no problem. Upon launch, the app displays the familiar Batman logo and plays the theme song from both the television and movie series. You'll see a masked criminal up to no good on a rooftop, as the city lights twinkle behind him. Soon enough, Batman climbs over the ledge and proceeds to pummel the thug in some intense hand-to-hand combat. Customization options include the ability to change Batman's suit, add or remove evildoers from the scene, and enable those trademark pop-up bubbles that say "Ka-pow" and "Bam." We should note that in our tests, the app ran quite slowly on older machines, so some PCs might not be able to handle it. Otherwise, any fan of Batman will probably find this free screensaver a nifty pickup.
Watch as Batman roams a rooftop beating up some of Gotham City's lowlifes. In the background of this amazing real-time 3D screensaver, pictures from the upcoming film Batman Begins are projected like the Bat Symbol onto the clouds in the sky. The application includes options for a countdown to the movies release, different Batman costumes, and background music.
Version 1.1 fixes the music bug and adds a heap of new images being projected into the sky.
