    Batman Returns on Genesis is a challenging game. The first couple of hours of play then death, repeat ad nauseum, I was too frustrated to continue for a while. All of what I chocked up to cheap deaths...

    The best of the Genesis Batman titles

    Rated on January 21, 2007 by wonderboy_46

    Batman Returns offers a really fun trip down memory lane. For a Genesis game the visuals are very impressive, as is the sound in the game. There is much more depth to the gameplay than there is in ...
