Zwar ist das Spiel unterm Strich „nur“ ein grafisch hervorragend aufgemachtes Prügelspiel. Jedoch sorgt die große Liebe zum Detail für reichlich Abwechslung. Die Extrawaffen geben – vor allem weil man ihren Einsatz planen muß – dem Game einen strategischen Touch. Hinzu kommt der Zweispieler-Modus, denn es geht doch nichts über eine Gangsterjagd zu zweit. Prügelspieler, High-Tech-Puristen und alle Batman-Fans werden sicherlich Gefallen an dieser Cartridge finden, bei dem trotz opulenten Speichers leider keine Continue- oder Paßwortsystem Platz fand.

While Batman has a large array of weapons at his command - Batarangs, smoke bombs, even Slippery Goo - and there's a lot of hidden areas and items, the game is missing one thing: Fun.

In comparison with the other SNES Batman games, Batman Forever is for the bats. The Adventures of Batman and Robin is still the best - it's light years ahead of this one.
Mortal Kombat im Fledermauskostüm! Darauf hat die Welt gewartet! Beim ersten Anspielen habe ich ziemlich dumm geschaut als Batman plötzlich einen auf Liu Kang für Arme machte. Abgesehen von der geklauten Mechanik bietet der Titel eigentlich nix, was nicht woanders schon mal zu sehen war. Selbst Batman-Fans sollten sich den Kauf überlegen. Bei wem es schon zu spät ist - nutzt die Cardridge als Bumerang und ärgert euren Nachbarn damit ^_^
The Video Game Critic
Robin has a sizeable gut, and Batman has a sack of potatoes in his pants! But the game's problems run far deep than that. The glossy, full-color manual never bothers to explain how to climb up and drop down through holes in the floor. As a result, it took me two FAQ pages to figure out how to get past the first stage! The game expects you to climb onto unseen ledges and drop down into areas not visible to the eye. Batman Forever makes a mockery of common sense. Why would destroying a safe cause a door to open on the lower level? There are times when you'll find yourself walking (and fighting) on thin air! The darker levels feature nice gothic scenery, but brighter levels (like the circus) look cheesy. Another annoying thing is having to wait for the game to load as you stare at "HOLD ON". This only lasts a few seconds, but this is a cartridge for Pete's sake! From top to bottom, Batman Forever is a complete mess.
