The graphics aren't exactly the best the Engine can come up with and the whole map seems to be arranged in conspicuous blocks. The sound though is totally superb - all of Sunsoft's Batman conversions have featured amazing music and the PC Engine game is no exception. Special mention must also go to the amazing end-of-level animations sequences - they're just totally gobsmacking, especially the film-quality Batwing sequence! Lastability is Batman's problem, though. It won't exactly glue you to the Engine and it is pretty simple to complete with no real incentive to drag you back for more.
80 (Sep, 2010)
Für Batman- und gleichzeitig PC-Engine-Fans ist diese Interpretation definitiv ein absolutes Muss, da sie auf alle Fälle gelungener ist als die anderen Software-Adaptionen des gleichen Films. Wegen des etwas zu monotonen Ablaufs kann ich jedoch nicht mehr als acht Punkte vergeben.
Génération 4 (Nov, 1990)
Complètement pompé sur Doramon, ce jeu est en fait un jeu de labyrinthes dans le genre de PacMan. Il n'a donc rien à voir avec les différentes adaptations faites jusqu'alors sur micro et consoles.
Again, if you can find a cheap copy, check it out. It's definitely an interesting concept and the artwork is as nice as I've seen on the TurboGrafx. Besides, a new game based on an old game can hardly ever go wrong!
Raze (Jan, 1991)
Poor presentation and repetitive gameplay.
Power Play (Jan, 1991)
Das Spielprinzip ist einfach und nicht gänzlich ohne Reiz, aber ab dem achten Level wird's nahezu unmöglich schwer. Außerdem geht die Abwechslung gegen Null.
Defunct Games (May 27, 2007)
Batman really is one of the world's greatest comic book characters, but you would never know it based on this terrible attempt at an action game. Whoever thought that Batman would make a good Bomberman-clone deserves to have his geek credentials stripped and forced to only work on dating simulators. Batman on the PC Engine is just an awful game, from beginning to end. It may be a lot longer than most games of the era, but that doesn't mean it's a better value. This may just be the worst Batman game of all time, a tough feat considering all of the really terrible Dark Knight titles that have hit the market.
