Digital Press - Classic Video Games
The same graphical style that players found on the NES is found here... exactly. With the absence of flicker, this looks like an exact copy. The cinemas are bit more colorful, but that's it. Still, even though it's not pushing the hardware, it does have a nice style and the characters are classic. Players can choose between either sound effects or music, but never both. For some reason, I could never choose the music. The menu simply wouldn't let me (above rating reflects that). The sound effects are sparse but serviceable. It's hard to see such a classic butchered like this. Nothing has been done to upgrade the game to take advantage of the CD32's extra horsepower. The single control flaw is one of the most infuriating aspects I've ever encountered while playing a video game. Give the game some music and an extra button and you've got a carbon copy of the NES game.

Amiga CD32 Gamer
The intro is reasonably slick, with some great Rare artwork. The game itself is certainly a challenge with twelve varied and imaginative levels. The control system is clumsy, the graphics 8-bit, the shoot-'em-up level limited and everything contributes to a huge blotch on Rare's reputation.

Det är när man ser spel som Battletoads som man börjar tvivla på speltillverkarnas mentala hälsa. Hur kan något så dåligt över huvud taget få släppas på marknanden?

Mindscapes Kampfkröten sind in der Disk-Version (Test in dieser Ausgabe) auf Tiefschläge spezialisiert, auf CD wird die Erträglichkeitsgrenze vollends unterschritten. Mit ihrer traurigen Grafik, den lächerlich animierten Sprites und einer völlig verunglückten Spielbarkeit degradieren die Plattform-Lurche die an sich so leistungsfähige Schillerscheibe zum hoffnungslos überteuerten Frisbee. Dieser CD-Müll ist mit 19 Prozent noch gut bedient!

It's Battletoads. But on the CD32. And five pounds more expensive.
