Batman Forever (1996) Video Game Review

game Batman Forever review

With the advent of the Justice League, Batman is back in fashion and it’s not just me, but thousands of fans around the world who are eager to see more about the Justice League, Batman and why not? suicide squad. But we still have a long wait for that while we’re waiting, I’ve decided to download one of the first Batman games, maybe some of you already know it, that is Batman Forever 1996 for Super Nintendo and Mega Drive.

Batman Forever was the last video game that was for 16-bit consoles, released alongside a movie where Jim Carrey, playing Riddler, caught a lot of attention. Batman Forever hasn’t been very faithful to the film, but that didn’t detract from the final quality of the game. In fact, we’re aware that movie adaptations are often quite disastrous, and while this game is inspired by the movie, it did so with a lot of quality.

The game allowed us to play the role of Batman or Robin, so you can play with another friend or alone. It’s a classic Beat’em up of the time when you can beat the crazy people of Arkham’s madhouse, the villains and minions of the Riddler’s Riddler, right and left. In Batman Forever we will also enjoy many typical gadgets of the character as weapons, among other effects that to be of the time, were very well thought out and elaborated.

One flaw I can attribute to you is the waiting time and slowness of this game. Accustomed to the new dynamic games and even faster in their loading, it is amazing how much the game has to be loaded between stages.

Batman Forever had some spectacular graphics for that time and showed characters of considerable good size on the screen. The protagonists were very striking and so were the followers. The scenery was very well finished and generally surprising.

The sound section was fine, it did its job and allowed us to enter fully into the dark and dangerous universe of Batman but honestly, it is not something to highlight.

Just to conclude, if you’re a fan of Batman, don’t miss this work that was released 22 years ago on Super Nintendo and MegaDrive. Batman Forever is a complicated, fun and technically very eye-catching game considering the time of year when the game was released. If you get the chance, try it alone or with a friend and draw your own conclusions.

Review Batman Arkham: Asylum (2009)

Game: Batman-Arkham-Asylum Review

The best superhero comes to this generation of consoles for the first time with Batman: Arkham Asylum and an advertising campaign worthy only of the best video games. Will this title meet expectations or will it stay in the middle of the road, like all superheroes?

It’s true that I’m a good Batman fan, my life has been strongly marked by this character and every time a game with his name is available, I run to the shops to buy it, but always with the idea that it won’t be good and I’m ready to be disappointed in one way or another. I can’t say that all his games have been bad or mediocre, there have been a few good ones, but never one like Arkham Asylum, who comes to define what a superhero title should be like.

Batman just caught the Joker one more time and took him back to Arkham Asylum. The Dark Knight, suspicious of the way he caught his nemesis, finds it too easy, and so escorts him almost all the way to his cell; apparently, it was all a trap and Joker has Arkham under control. Now our hero has to catch his worst enemy while facing some others who escaped in the chaos.

Arkham Asylum is an action game where you will use all of Batman’s skills to return control of the island to the authorities. What do you mean? The best way he knows how to do it: by investigating and subduing all the criminals in his path. The fighting system is simple but spectacular and fun, most encounters will be with more than three enemies, but if you are skilled enough, you can fight all the fights without a scratch on the cape… or maybe not. You can also use your cape to stun anyone in front of you to gain a little time and later in the game, you can use part of the arsenal of weapons and gadgets you find.

You can’t always deal with your opponents face to face, when you come across five armed guys, it’s time to take out the predator inside you. Batman can attack in different ways, either silently coming from behind opponents to knock them out or by intimidating methods, such as passing through glass, or by using explosives or gadgets.

Game Batman Arkham Asylum Reviewing

This doesn’t mean you’ll have to go through the game hitting enemies and advancing, you’ll also have to repair the damage the villains cause and save guards and doctors in danger. You can use detective tools to track your opponents, find out more about Arkham’s past and solve the puzzles of… you know who.

Where Batman: Arkham Asylum triumphs over all the games that had been made of the superhero, is in the way of assuming the role of Batman. This time I really felt that I was using the Dark Knight and not some misguided and poorly researched conception of some game creator. The story was written by Paul Dini of DC, a writer who is very familiar with the character. The voices are from actors who worked on several animated versions of the series, such as Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamill (Joker); the others also did an excellent job.

There are a lot of things to do in the game. In addition to the main story, you have the option of finding the trophies and solving two other types of puzzles left by the Riddler throughout Arkham, which will help you learn more about its story, as well as unlock more content. The encounters with the villains are epic and there are some very original moments, like the confrontation with Killer Croc.

At the end of the story, you can go all over the island to find the items you missed and have access to all levels of the two types of challenges: Combat and Predator. In the first, you have to fight to score as many points as possible and in the second you have to finish off the level enemies in the shortest time possible or by meeting certain criteria if you want to get the medals to get the achievements and trophies.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is an excellent game with an impressive technical level, is one of the best in this generation of consoles and will be remembered for a long time. Get ready to spend several days on Arkham Island, you are the guest of honor at this challenging and villainous party, a party that Batman will try to stop at any cost.
