Batman Returns (SNES) Playthrough – NintendoComplete

A playthrough of Konami’s 1993 licensed movie-tie in beat ’em up, Batman Returns.

Played through on the Mania difficulty level, no continues used.

Konami was on such an amazing hot streak in the early 90s, and this game came right at the height of it. This is an incredible adaptation of a smash-hit movie, with loads of cinematics and digitzed stills straight from the movie, music that sounded as close to the recorded score as any form of synthesis could ever hope to, and game play that nails the accessibility and intuitiveness of the Final Fight brawling system. One of the best beat ’em ups on the SNES, and one of the best movie tie-in games I ever remember playing.

No cheats were used during the recording of this video.

    I rented this back in April 1993. My favorite was throwing enemies up into walls and windows or walking between two of them and smashing their heads together. I remember GamePro giving this 5.0 (their highest rating) in all their categories. Very few games got that. And who else knew to shoot the grapnel gun at the wall behind the first boss and hit him with a piece of it like he did in the movie?

    This, and the NES versions, both pretty badass Batman games. And this one actually is based off the Keaton films (like the NES one, and the first Sunsoft Batman NES, Genesis, and GB games, and Batman Returns on Sega Genesis and CD). This is the only one though, that has a digitized picture of Michael Keaton (the best Batman IMO, followed by Adam West).

    This game features the most physically powerful batman ever, he not only picks up clowns that must weigh 400 pounds but slams them, legs trailing from the air back to the ground…with one hand.

    Oh, there is so much nostalgia tied to this game, it basically helped get me through the 6th grade. I basically blew most of age 12 playing this game and the NES one, it's also the second best Batman movie ever made and is only a tad behind the first one with Michael Keaton. They messed up big when they fired Tim Burton and brought in Joel Schumacker, he basically turned the franchise into a lame gay joke.

    My favorite retro Batman game of all time. I play this game all the time during my spare time and I had a blast beating up clowns. This nailed the movie right down to the letter T
