    Company Press Release

    Acclaim Ships Batman
    & Robin for PlayStation

    Look Out Gotham
    City, The Dark Knight Arrives In Stores August 7


    GLEN COVE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 4, 1998--
    Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKLM - news), a
    leading
    worldwide interactive entertainment company, announced
    today that the Batman & Robin PlayStation game, based
    on the Warner
    Bros. film, will ship this week to
    retail outlets nationwide for a suggested retail price
    of $49.95. Developed exclusively for the
    Sony
    PlayStation, the game is the first 3-D third-person action
    adventure game featuring the Dark Knight.

    Acclaim
    has created a virtual Gotham City(tm) to fully
    immerse gamers in the dark and mysterious world of Batman
    and Robin.
    The game has a distinctly cinematic
    feel combining multidimensional crime fighting, an
    arsenal of awesome projectile gadgets,
    advanced
    martial arts moves, puzzle-solving detective work and
    edge-of-your-seat driving. Players select their lead of choice
    --
    Batman, Robin or Batgirl(tm) -- and can change characters
    at will in order to thwart the evil plots of Mr.
    Freeze(tm) and Poison
    Ivy(tm) in a battle to save Gotham
    City from impending frosty doom.

    ``Batman &
    Robin defines its own genre,'' said Thomas Bass,
    Product Manager at Acclaim. ``The game successfully
    combines
    driving, shooting, fighting, exploring, and a
    sophisticated detective element, seamlessly creating a gaming
    world within a virtual
    Gotham City that fully
    immerses the player.''

    Batman & Robin utilizes a
    revolutionary 3-D polygonal engine that loads data on the fly
    for fast-paced action. The game features
    menacing
    Gotham City environments spanning an incredible 26
    virtual square miles. A dynamic camera, along with
    Acclaim's
    advanced technology and proprietary motion capture, will
    attract serious gamers and thrill fans of the Batman
    franchise.

    ``Batman & Robin is the best Batman
    videogame in years,'' said Rob Sebastian, director of
    licensing & marketing, Warner Bros.
    Interactive
    Entertainment. ``The game is aggressive in both its gameplay and
    in providing Batman, Robin and Batgirl with
    the
    arsenal required to completely crush crime. We are
    thrilled with Acclaim's transformation of Batman & Robin
    from film to game. We expect this title to go gold in
    the first to second order cycle''
