Super NES

Overall: 7

This game is one of the more brutal Batman games ever made. Basically, it is Final Fight with Batman characters, but the gameplay is so fun and addicting that you'll forget that you've played the game to death already. This game allows you to take two enemies and beat their heads together, one of the coolest moves ever in a video game and this is the only game I can think of that allows you to do that! Above and beyond that, the game controls very well. You'll be pulling off cool moves and pounding bad guys into the ground with a fever not matched by many games (Streets of Rage 1 and 2 come to mind as being equal to this and not many others).

The only real drawback to the game is that it doesn't have a lot of variety to it, like the Genesis Batman game, but honestly, it's so much fun that you won't even notice it. To make things all the better, the graphics really show off the power of the SNES machine. Batman himself is huge for the time this game came out and the crispness of the graphics and superb nimation make this one of the better looking SNES games. If you want some mindless fun, beating guys heads into each other and don't have Streets of Rage 2 for the Genesis, check this game out!
