The Adventures of Batman & Robin (Mega CD / Sega CD review)

Developer: Clockwork Tortoise, Warner Bros. Animation
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1995

The Adventures of Batman & Robin is an action-driving game and the follow-up to Batman Returns (1993, Mega CD / Sega CD).

+ Gameplay shows off the hardware's sprite scaling capabilities and there's little slowdown despite the brisk pace.

+ FMV quality is outstanding (while being in full screen) and the cartoon animations are exclusive to this game.

+ Music packs a punch and creates serious intensity for the gameplay while perfectly encapsulating the moody environments.

- Action quickly grows tiresome due to the overly strict timers and repetitive nature of dodging hordes of cars to advance.

- Comical amount of road barriers blocking your path, yet you're still expected to deftly use turbo to beat the timer.

- Lack of difficulty options means that all but the most skilled and patient players will get the full experience.

- Like the previous game, bosses tend to be major bullet sponges, which results in stages that drag on forever.
