5 January 2006 | by Meltdown53098533See all my reviews

Frankly, I bought the game because it said "Batman". i had no idea of what i was going to get when playing this game, but i have to say that it's a pretty good action game for the NES.

Batman has three gadgets for fighting crime, and asides from the gadgets he can punch people and crouch. it would have been nice if he could;d do some combos, but you can'e be too hard on a game that's going on 17 years old. Batman can also do a neat jumping-up-the-wall move when there are two walls in close proximity.

My only (ironic) complaint is that when you die, you don't lose your gadgets or get sent back to the beginning of the stages. it makes the game seem incomplete, and since you don't lose gadgets or get sent to the beginning of the stage, there is really no point in getting the screen that says "Game Over: Continue? Quit?" because you don't lose anything.
