Adventures of Batman and Robin
by Clockwork Tortoise, Inc.
Borrowing the looks, sounds and feel of the Batman - The Animated Series TV show, The Adventures of Batman and Robin lets you assume the role of the Caped Crusader as he takes on his most daunting mission ever: defeating practically every super-villain in Gotham City!
All of your favorites have escaped from Arkham Asylum to make appearances (and to make your life hell):
- The maniacal Joker.
- the Scarecrow and Clayface are among the many bosses you'll have to face in the game.
Fortunately, you'll have the resources of your utility belt to help you on your way, and - making his first appearance in a 16-bit video game - Robin, The Boy Wonder is also on hand to lend moral support.
The Genesis needed a good action title, and this cart fills the void. However, this game is tough and repetitive. It concentrates too much on the visual effects, some of which are very cool, that the game play lags. The control is responsive, but you just can't avoid the hits. The Bosses are cool but nearly impossible to kill. It's okay if a game is tough, as long as technique is involved, but this game is just too simple. Still, this is the only new Genesis action game around.
Take it easy on me, Sega! Do you guys think you could possibly throw more enemies at me and make the game so hard that I get peeved by only the second level?! Listen up readers, Batman & Robin has good sounds, good graphics and good control. You'll really need the last part since there is so much on the screen you'll have to avoid. If you're looking for one serious challenge, you won't need to look any further than this one. I gotta take a nap.
The popularity of Batman and Robin has reached its crowning moment with their own video game. This game comes complete with fantastic character animation and super-stupendous graphics and sound. Warner Bros, would be proud. There is also plenty of challenge and a lot of enemies. But wait! That's the problem. There are too many enemies and the whole game is just too darn hard. I don't mind a good challenge now and then, but this is ridiculous.
This game looks really cool, but it got repetitive really fast. The same enemies come out in drones and don't do anything really unique. To further the effect, the enemies swarm you and make the game difficult to the point of frustration. If you think the levels are tough, try the Bosses for a real hair puller. There are some neat effects, but you really need more power-ups or techniques to make it play a little more even. It's a decent game with a tough challenge.
