Yeah, sorry I missed that one out - it is a great game.

Trouble is, it's not really Batman. It's just one of Sunsoft's platform games with the Batman character added at the last moment to tie in with the movie at the time!

It plays more like Gremlins 2 on the GB ...

I've not played a rubbish Batman yet, but my favourite would be the Mega CD version of Batman Returns.

Isn't it quite rare on the Mega CD?
I saw a copy of Batman and Robin on the Mega CD go for around £250 on ebay a couple of weeks ago. I think that makes it rare :shock:

Much better price if you buy the US version then ;)

That was a difficult choice! Adventures of B & R was excellent, Batman Forever was nearly as good as Final Fight (leave it final fight bashers!), but I had to go for Batman the Movie. It was outstanding on the time on the Amiga, and was also pretty darn good on the C64!

BATMAN THE MOVIE. got it on speccy (with THE UNTOUCHABLES) and the AMIGA. both push the 'puters to their limits (the amiga even more so. the 3d driving bits made my eyes bleed they were so good!)

I stand by my choice, so, nergh!!! :P

You forgot to include the Adventures of Batman and Robin. Great game and amazing graphics; it looked like the cartoon. Anyway, my favourite is Batman: The Movie. I had it for the Amiga; very impressive game. But the 8 bit Batman comes a close second.

Duh! Stupid me; must be some sort of selective blindness. Sorry.

Batman the Movie has my vote. Never played the Amiga version but loved the Spectrum version.

I notice that Batman Begins hasn't been given an option though. I have to say I quite like this one too on XBox.

Incidentally the last I heard was that they were making Lego Indiana Jones, not Lego Batman now.

Same as - the Jon Ritman Batman game was superb and it kicks ass next to any other Batman game :D

I didn't include Batman Begins as it's not 'retro' enough yet.

Don't worry about Lego Batman, it IS being released later this year (multi-format). Lego Indy will follow next year to coincide with the Indy IV movie ...

Batman Returns (16bit) (1992) (I played the SNES version). A final Fight rip-off but awesome nevertheless - This game is the high standard you would expect from Konami.

The best one was the Megadrive one by Sunsoft - I'm not sure if one of the options is that one?

It had brill atmosphere and the BEST music too

Also, how about the amazing PC Engine Batman that was like a scrolling pacman, also by Sunsoft..

I had em both and loved em

Most Batman games were good to be fair eh

Yes, it's the one made in 1990.

You obviously haven't played Batman Dark Tomorrow :wink:
It had fantastic presentation and cut scenes but the gameplay was completely broken.
