What do you get when you turn a shitty movie into a video game? You get a shitty video game, and Batman Forever on the Sega Genesis is no exception. From the frustrating control, to the lack of logic, this game fucks zebras. Why zebras? Why not?
One thing that really irritated me to start off was the unoriginal names of the bad guys. You start off a Arkym Assylum I'm guessing, and everyone's name is Mad Pete, Mad Jon, Mad Steve, Mad Max etc. The second thing I noticed was the trouble controlling Batman's climbing tool. And the Riddler's voice is so fucking gargelled, they might as well have not put it in. And then I couldn't even beat the first level. Why? I killed the Mad Pauls and the Mad Fuckfaces and never died (dying in this game is hard with health powerups everywhere) but could not find where to go. I gave up on this game after 30 minuites. Apparently a secret code enables you to play as the Riddler, so if you feel like fucking around then try that out.
Want to know how shitty this game really is? I got it for $1.99. No joke. The guy who sold it to me at the Game center even told me not to buy it, but for $1.99, I insisted. What does that say about a game if the guy selling it tells you not to buy it? What kind of marketing is that?
And hey, fuck you Val Kilmer. You never lived up to Keaton for a second.
