In Other News – 14 October 2016

Believe it or not, but not every Batman game ever made is actually worth a few hours of your time. Back in 1995, Warner Bros. had just released Batman Forever. A film which I still adore with all my heart because I thought Val Kilmer was fantastic and the Pather batsuit (nipples and all) is still one of the best costumes ever worn by the dark knight.

To go with the release of that film, came a Batman Forever game on the SNES, Megadrive and PC. And well it wasn’t very good at all. To say that Batman Forever was Arkham Kombat, would be a nice way to describe the gameplay. But that’s what it was. A carbon copy of Mortal Kombat, players navigated their way through gangs of inmates and used a very familiar combat system to take them out of the equation.

And I kinda dug that. It’s most likely where my obsession with the power fantasty began, but Batman Forever was a guilty pleasure that I adored. Just like the movie source material.
