    Yes, likely true. But why did they reinvent the wheel? At that point, everyone was fairly used to jumping and dropping in a few common ways. Why decide on such an unusual method?

    I simply hated that game too. I rented it years ago, when it was new, and gave up after fifteen minutes, though I did figure out how to use the Batgrapple thingy upwards.

    I actually rented Batman Forever years ago and was so stumped I took it back to the store and said the "game didn't work". (As I couldn't figure out how to move away from the one screen you need the grappling hook for) Good review, I really liked this one, I was hoping for Sega Genesis Batman myself (a favorite of mine). The Cinemassacre piece on Batman is good also the original up through Dark Knight are reviewed by James (AVGN), check it out.

    Currently he's covering the Batman films, from the movie serials to present.
    As a movie critic, he's a good game critic.

    I like most of the Nerd's videos, but for some reason I was under-whelmed by the Superman & Batman videogame reviews. But since everyone else here seems to have loved them, I guess it was just me.

    I liked the last two a lot, even though I've been fortunate enough to NOT play most of 'em save for Batman on the NES.

    Holy crap - Batman Returns... really. MK-based platformer/beatemup? Wow. That's a winner right there
    -AB+

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    @CelticJobber : It's not just you. For some reasons, I can't put his batman games review in my top3, just in my top5. To clarify, almost every new review he did seems better than the previous ones that obligatory makes me change my top3 favorites avgn reviews. He actually did entertain me, specially the unplayables games, and he did tells me things I didn't know, which is something I always expected in his reviews. Unfortunatly, his speech to the cartridges "I'm batman" was fun the first and second time, but again and again... it became not so funny.

    Even if it's not a complete review, the batman game review by wizwar100 seems to me better than the one by avgn. I'm talking here about the humor, something I expect more than costumes and acting, even if it makes the video more polish and dramatic.

    Yes, avgn is a good entertainer, a nice person. Yes, he is a good reviewer. But, it was not my favorite batman game review. sorry James.

    I just noticed something. In his intro for the Batman review, John Hardy's soul is on display (via the Big Boy Bobble head doll) on top of the old TV. Anyone else catch this?

    On his Cinemassacre account, he responded to Nostalgia Critic with a movie review:

    Funny video!

    The graphics in Batman: Return of the Joker are amazing on the NES.

    I'm surprised James didn't review the NES version of Batman Returns.

    I enjoyed that a lot, Mike was a good Caesar Romero Joker, but as annoying as his Cowardly Lion and Bugs Bunny characters. (And I'm pretty sure that's his intention.)

    I think he is annoying as well. I liked it overall though.

    Loved it, but Return of the Joker is a far more easier game than the first Batman NES game. And The Joker is just bashing the attack button and you'll win (my brother's tactic), I just used a simple strategy to beat him.

    I wonder if he does very much scripting in advance? The cussing during Revenge of the Joker just seemed so natural!

    I really liked the review portions of his latest video, but he's really gotta knock it off with all that extra shit. It's not funny at all.
