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
I voted Batman 16 bit on the basis it was the Sunsoft game for the Megadrive. Still a game I like playing.

I wish one of the games had had him doing the Batdance if you left him alone for a few minutes

Batman Returns for me, both the Snes version which I played sooooooo much, and the Mega CD version which I 1st played last year.

Both are excellent game imo.

I do like Batman the Movie too, on the C64 and Amiga, but my crap skills let me down and I rarely make it out of the Axxis chemical factory. I hadn't played either of these until earlier this year either.

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 ...
Excellent news. I couldn't get enough of Lego Star Wars (both of them).

And he'd better be able to do the Batdance!

Seriously, he just might. :wink:

That's the sort of humor that made Lego Star Wars so good!

That's right - and I want a shark grabbing him by the leg , and Robin saying Holy Whatever every few minutes

We want Adam West , not Tim Burton!

The only one I ever got to play was one for the Amiga (Batman the Movie I think) and I wasn't awfully impressed at the time, although since I was bored I did spend a good few hours on it. It wins by default though.

Batman Returns for the SNES, I rented it once and it was great.

Although it's not an option, I also have to give an honorable mention to Batman on the GB.

FYI, Lego Batman has now been pushed back to a Spring 2008 release probably to coincide with the new film ...

Batman for the NES. One of the greatest super-hero video games of all time.

I'm going with the unpopular choice of Batman: The Caped Crusader. I just loved the comic book feel, eventhough the way Batman moved was a bit "wooden". I remember making it to the end of the Joker level, & there was Robin tied to the roller coaster, but I didn't know what to do from there. This was a good 15 odd years ago now, dunno if I could get that far again. I remember the Joker stage being VERY hard!!

I'd love to see a remake of this game. As for Lego Batman... I LOVED Lego Star Wars, so bring it on!!

EDIT: Oh, & I remember the Amstrad version had music on the title screen that sounded more like the Spiderman theme than the Batman theme... at the start of it anyway...
