Description official descriptions

Based on the animated movie of the same name, Batman Beyond is a 3D brawler that puts the player on the streets of Gotham (Beyond) to take out the ever-grinning Joker, but before that an obvious long line of evil minions of his —some of which are genetically engineered.

Scroll around, punch, kick, ply with bat-weapons, and avoid being on the receiving end of those attacks. There are multiple 'bat suits' that you can choose from, each with their own special abilities and purpose.

It's so bad it's almost incredibly bad that it's good. Almost!

The Good
Batman looks cool. Zip on everything else.

The Bad
The length of this game's a joke. It can be completed in under half an hour! Half an hour for a Nintendo 64 game? That's all kinds of pathetic right there, and the cut scenes are just slideshows from the movie it's based on. And the music is the same plodding dun dun dun dun heavy metal grunge that makes the game seem overly edgy when in reality it makes it seem like a dinosaur-age relic of that cool-kid era of gaming that came about from true games like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter.

The Bottom Line
You want a game that's like The Room of bad games? Here you go. And it's Batman so throw in some commentary while you tear this game a new one.
