About this product
|Longtime superheroes Batman and Robin battle kooky villains Two-Face, The Riddler, and their henchmen in this video game based on the popular Joel Schumacher film. To assist them in their pursuit of justice, Batman and Robin are equipped with various gadgets including Batarangs, grappling hooks, flash pellets, slippery goo, and sticky goo. Of course, their fists and feet are their primary weapons. In the two-player mode, Batman and Robin can fight crime cooperatively or competitively.|
Batman Forever features eight levels of villainous mayhem taking place at key areas throughout Gotham City. Locations include Arkham Asylum, an institution for the most dangerous criminals; the Second Bank of Gotham, where Two-Face plans to hijack an entire bank vault; the circus, where Two-Face has planted a bomb; the Ritz Gotham, a swanky joint where Ed Nygma (better known as The Riddler) has unveiled his latest dangerous invention which steals the mental powers of Gotham citizens; an abandoned subway, where Two-Face tries to make his big escape; Wayne Manor, home of the Dynamic Duo; and Claw Island, The Riddler's hideout.
As you battle through this game as either Batman or Robin, you can solve riddles placed in your path by none other than The Riddler. The answers to these riddles are clues that will help you get through each level. Scattered Two-Face coins will renew much-needed energy or give you an extra life. Before the action begins you have the option of training in the Batcave Gym, where you can hone your skills fighting holographic images of the bad guys.
Do you have what it takes to assume the role of the Caped Crusaders, using your brains, brawn, and gadgetry to triumph over the dark forces of evil? Find out with Batman Forever for the Genesis.

Excellcent Sega Classic!!
Fun and action packed. I remember playing this as a kid and loving it. It seems things haven't changed all that much because I still do. It is an excellent Sega game. As long as you aren't looking for amazing graphics that we recieve now you will enjoy.

a great burst of nostalgia
excellent game but controls are a bit difficult. The game is based mainly on combos to use equipment. If you can't do the combos, you're not gonna get very far. Considering the 16 bit nature of the game, the graphics are pretty good. I love it cause I did as a kid, now its just a lot easier to get through.

batman forever (genesis) review
First of all let me just say that Batman fans don't get much more hardcore than I am. I have been a Batman fan since before I could walk. But in all seriousness, I had to own this game just to be able to say that I own it. The platform is just a mortal kombat ripoff changed into a side-scroller. The controls are awkward, and it took me forever to get used to them. I only beat it once, and have barely played it since. If you go to Cinemassacre.com, or just google the angry video game nerds review of the Batman games, you'll understand what I'm saying. I knew about all the hap-hazardness of this game before he came out with his review, but he explains it so well, you know exactly what the game is like. I don't really recommend this game for people who are just curious. I recommend it for Batman fans only.Read full review

I would say a poor game but I love batman
Batman! He's the Caped Crusader, the Dark Knight, and easily one of the greatest superheroes of the DC comic universe. This highly skilled vigilante has been protecting the city of Gotham for decades, fighting to honor the memories of his murdered parents and honing his crime-fighting abilities to absolute perfection. He's faced down psychos, saved the world, and has gone toe to toe with the Man of Steel on more than a few occasions. Yes, Batman truly is the greatest superhero of our time…at least in the cartoons, movies and comic books. Video games are another story. While Batman may the personification of hardcore, the various video games in his namesake don't do him much justice. The Dark Knight has been plagued with crappy titles for years now, treating fans to ill-manufactured slop with the Batman logo printed on top. Sadly, Batman Forever reminds us of why they are so bad.
It's a brand new day in Gotham. Batman has recently ridden the city of both the Penguin and Catwoman, allowing the citizens to go about their daily lives once more. That is, until there's a massive breach of security at Arkham Asylum. Two-Face, a criminal mastermind with a split personality, has broken out of the high security prison. He's leading a bunch of other crazy thugs on a rampage that could annihilate anything good and decent still remaining in the city. But while Two-Face's doubly dangerous style of crime is devastating enough, another villain has emerged from the shadowy depths to wreak his own havoc on the unsuspecting urbanites. The Riddler uses his mind to befuddle his victims, leaving drooling zombies in his wake. With the safety and sanctity of Gotham hanging in the balance yet again, it's up to Batman and Robin to save the day.
Without a moment to spare, the two heroes suit up to battle their new foes. They arrive at the scene only to be confronted with a small army of armed lunatics just waiting to get a piece of the Dynamic Duo. Of course, these guys don't know what they're in for. Batman is known throughout the world for not only his technical genius in just about every field, but he's also a master of multiple forms of combat. And while Robin in nothing more than the young sidekick, he has all the skills he needs to take on just about anyone. Yet despite their supposedly vast mastery of the martial arts, these two vigilantes fight like a couple of drunken bar patrons. Only punches, kicks, and uppercuts make up their not-so classy moves. Luckily, our heroes come armed and dangerous with some weapons, like Batarang projectiles and Grappling Hooks. Too bad they can only carry a few weapons at a time, severely hurting their chances of their crusade's success.Read full review
