    Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker on N64. I'll give them some credit on the title because it really is a joker.

    This is the only game that I can think of that is so bad that it's fantastic. It's not like Superman 64 where the game was so bad that it was just flat out bad. This is **** Batman. He can't fly or anything. He is the best superhero in the world and they treat him like a bloody rag-doll or punching dummy.

    Almost every cinematic scene after a boss fight has a cutscene where Batman collapses backwards onto the ground like a domino or inflatable punch 'em clown, or like a model falling backwards against the wind.

    Batman of the Future: Return of the Joker (the Australian title of the game) is such a guilty pleasure that it should be punishable by death to have pleasure from playing this disaster.

    Besides Superman 64, this has got to be the worst game on the Nintendo 64. It has a poorly executed formula, outdated gameplay mechanics and terrible dusty graphics, and to add insult to injury, Batman falls over like a domino. Superman 64 would get a 2.0/10, while Return of the Joker would get a 2.5/10.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Wirklich ein schlechtes Spiel. Es ist hässlich und die Steuerung ist Müll. Hab aber schlimmere Batman Spiele gespielt. Expand

    Even if you're a huge fan of the Batman cartoons or comic books, steer clear of this disaster of an action game.
  2. Fans of the cartoon obviously aren't sick of the Batman premise, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to tolerate this game.

    Everything about the product is shoddily executed, from its formulaic and outdated gameplay mechanics to its horribly dusty graphic look.
