Batman et Robin, héros de toute une génération viennent nous offrir sur Megadrive le meilleur jeu de la franchise. Tout est parfait dans ce titre, la masturbation oculaire est intégrale tout le long du jeu. il est donc pas rare de recommencer, surtout au début, mais une fois notre Ikagura de la Megadrive bien en main c'est un véritable plaisir de faire la fête à tous ces enfoirés !

Bénéficiant d'une excellente réalisation, Batman & Robin nous gâche toutefois un peu le plaisir par sa difficulté. À réserver aux acharnés.

Zugegeben, es ist kein leichtes Spiel, aber ich kann's nur empfehlen.

Si vous vous donnez la peine de pratiquer, une fois que vous serez à l'aise avec le jeu, vous remarquerez qu'il est loin d'être impossible et offre une expérience comme seule la Genesis pouvait offrir! C'est une suite d'effets spéciaux tableaux après tableaux avec un gameplay smooth! Maintenant, j'admire la compagnie d'avoir osé sortir ce jeu avec une telle difficulté à la place de l'avoir atténuée pour la rendre accessible à tout le monde. Mais je ne peux m'empêcher de le trouver laborieux par moments, en particulier le tableau en Batwings. C'est un jeu que je n'ai pas de problème à placer dans la même catégorie que les Contra Hard Corps, Gunstar Heroes, et Alien Soldier en terme d'action et de présentation. Malheureusement, la trop grande répétition vient tâcher un jeu qui aurait pu être mémorable!

Un jeu estampillé Batman, on peut comprendre que cela fasse un peu peur au début. Il faut dire que la tentation est grande de nous proposer un soft médiocre qui a pour seul atout de nous plonger dans les rues de Gotham City. Heureusement, ce jeu échappe à la règle en nous offrant de magnifiques graphismes aux couleurs aussi froides qu’une ville bercée par les glaciales intentions de Mr Freeze, ainsi qu’un gameplay simple qui se prend immédiatement en main. Le jeu devrait néanmoins trouver plus facilement son public du côté des professionnels du pad, sa difficulté pouvant en refroidir plus d’un…

Once you've gotten past the difficulty and questionable musical choices, there's really a great game beneath that's worth checking out. With a Game Genie and a friend, it can be quite enjoyable. Just don't expect an easy ride. Batman has tried repeatedly to be a successful game character and Clockwork Tortoise has come as close as anyone to making that happen.

The Genesis game is graphically nothing short of spectacular. The characters are animated so incredibly well that you'd swear they were on the screen. In addition, this game uses more colors than most Genesis games, and it really shows, as this game has some of the most incredible graphics (the explosions and the amount of stuff happening on screen at one time are mind boggling) ever seen in a Genesis game. Gameplay itself is incredibly well done. Where this game falters is in the difficulty. The game is so incredibly hard that unless you're one of those people who likes throwing controllers, you'll stop playing this game after the first level, if you ever get past the first level. Had it been easier, this game would have rated a perfect 10 in my book.

Is it just me or is 16-bit shaping up to be more than anyone bargained for? I simply cannot believe the visuals they are achieving on the Genesis hardware. It's a crying shame that this fantastic looking Genesis cart is nearly impossible to enjoy. Just when you think you have it dialed the game goes berserk and throws so much at you at once you experience total meltdown. It's just not right.

Dal punto di vista tecnico, The Adventures of Batman & Robin è sicuramente un ottimo run 'n' gun / beat 'em up. La giocabilità, putroppo, non è altrettanto brillante a causa di una strisciante ripetitività del gameplay e di una difficoltà che, da severa nella prima parte del gioco, tende a farsi decisamente proibitiva nella seconda.

E' un gioco che colpisce per la discreta definizione, l’ottimo design degli sprites e la finezza delle animazioni. I fondali, pur non particolarmente colorati e in alcuni casi eccessivamente scarni, sono sufficientemente vari e restituiscono abbastanza bene l’atmosfera della serie animata con le colorazioni sature che la contraddistinguevano.

The Adventures of Batman and Robin on the Genesis just doesn't give you the special superhero rush that it should. Larger-than-life comic-book heroes larger-than-life treatment. Batman and Robin should have chilled in the Batcave a little longer.

Difficulty aside (it's tough getting anywhere even with two players), The Adventures of Batman & Robin is a proud addition to the long line of Batman merchandising. Just don't let anybody try to sell you a Batman T-shirt this summer, okay?

Batman & Robin has good sounds, good graphics and good control. You'll 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.

Game Players
If the battles involved more than just stiff jump-kicks and the throwing of bat paraphernalia, then it might be more fun to fight so many enemies, but in the end, many of the levels just become an annoying interruption between bosses. At least it looks good.

Technisch - vor allem optisch - wurde das Spiel jedenfalls sehr gut in Szene gesetzt, und wer schon lange auf der Suche nach einem hammerharten Game mit herausforderndem Schwierigkeitsgrad war, hat jetzt ein Modul gefunden.

All Game Guide
Graphically, this game excels with tons of line scrolling backgrounds, lusciously dark colors, great animation, tight control, and a believable Batman world, but the difficulty simply makes this game unplayable, even by the best of the best! If you're a Batman fanatic, check it out, but don't expect to thrash through it! With Genesis software prices nearing the 5 to 20 dollar range, you can find a cheap copy to destroy after a few frustrating minutes.

So don't go out and sell your Batman pajamas to get up the cash to buy this game. Leave them right where they are. I promise you - even the most intense Batman fan won't lose sleep over not owning this one.

The Video Game Critic
Actually, most of your attacks involve projectiles, making the game feel like a shooter at times. I really like finding those smart bombs that instantly destroys everything on the screen. The Batwing shooting stage provides a nice change of pace, but its lack of firepower is disappointing. Accompanying the action is an intense, pulsating musical score. Adventures of Batman and Robin offers no password options, just six continues. There's a lot to like, but this game should have been a whole lot better. My friend Eric and I used an invincibility cheat to get all the way through, and it was still a chore!
