Zodra je alle mogelijkheden van Batman: Revenge of the Joker onder de knie hebt, zal je er veel lol aan beleven. Moeilijk, maar leuk. Het geluid is wel matig.

I think it's rather shameful. Ringler Studios has a full 16-bit system to work with here, and I'm thinking at first that one of my favorite NES games will make the upgrade into one bad mo-fo of a game. Yeah right...instead all we get is a mediocre 16-bit version of an excellent 8-bit game. THAT, my friends, is embarrassing enough. But nothing was more embarrassing than having to be haunted by another Adam West-ish Batman. YEEEESH.

Schade! Während Sunsofts erster Batman noch Spaß machte und durchaus zu gefallen wußte, geht dieser eindeutig baden. Das liegt an mehreren Fehlern und/oder Schlampigkeiten, die Sunsoft bei ihrem neuesten Werk unterlaufen sind. Zum einen wäre da der schräge und einschläfernde Sound, zum anderen wird man von der Grafik negativ überrascht; man fühlt sich ins Mega Drive-Mittelalter zurückversetzt. Das alles wäre unter Umständen zu ertragen gewesen, wenn der Spielspaß das Modul gerettet hätte. Doch, oh Schreck, hier siehts noch zappendüsterer aus: Die Kollisionsabfrage läßt sich treffend mit dem Wort “unfair“ beschreiben und die Steuerung hätte selbst mein Goldfisch präziser programmiert, Spiele dieser Art bringen das Gerät in Verruf!

Revenge of the Joker is pretty bad on all counts, with its only redeeming feature being that it makes the NES version look respectable. It's hard to believe that Sunsoft, who produced so many quality side-scrollers for the Genesis (including the first Batman) could botch this one so badly.
