The Xbox video game adaptation of the upcoming Warner Bros film "Batman Begins" will soon be available as an online rental. The action/adventure game features images and voices from the film throughout a story that loosely follows the movie's events. The creators of the game insert may additional elements that expand on what may only be brief scenes in the film. The result is a richly detailed adventure as seen though the eyes of the revamped Batman character.

"Halo 2" for the Xbox console is the top new release video game rental. The game is a first-person shooter that builds on the hugely popular first "Halo" game by adding additional levels of intrigue, as well as an increasingly detailed storyline. The story of the game unfolds in a very cinematic fashion, and can take anywhere from 10 to 15 hours to complete.

Upcoming New Release Video Game Titles

American McGee's "Bad Day in LA" is an upcoming video game release that combines action and absurdist humor in a twisted story detailing one exceptionally bad day in Los Angeles. The game's hero, an unemployed everyman, is something of an oddity in the world of video games--he wants nothing to do with the adventure he finds himself immersed in. However, as the hero continuously attempts to avoid involvement in the conspiracy-laden story, he finds himself inadvertently dragged back into the eye of the storm.

As "Bad Day in LA" unfolds, the hero finds himself facing government conspiracies, terrorists, zombies, gangsters, and natural disasters. The game features 110 unique characters, including four supporting characters who occasionally accompany the hero through the game. The game will be available for rental and purchase in late 2005.
