    Dlala delivers a rollercoaster ride of chaos, adventure and challenge that lives up to the Battletoads name.

    The new Battletoads is almost as beefy as its musclebound heroes, serving up a substantial 5-to-7-hour campaign as well as additional collectibles and high-score challenges. Not bad for $20. Battletoads 2020 probably won’t be quite as durable as the NES original, but you may find yourself hopping back into the game more often than you expect.

    The greatest success of Battletoads is to have understood what it means to revive a franchise like this, which dates back so long: each of the elements were reviewed, polished and recreated with a lot of heart, encouraging new and unknown ideas, always faithful to the original game.

    Battletoads is pretty much uneven by intentional design, but it remains recommended as a worthy throwback to a seemingly forgotten series that still marches to the beat of its own drum.

    I suspect that fans of the original will find a good dose of nostalgia here that may well make it worth the price of admission. For everyone else… well, if you grew up in the 80’s and 90’s you might get a touch of nostalgia as well, unless you were more a Turtles fan like me, in which case this will simply continue making the Battletoads look like also-rans.

    Most of the game's foundation is solid. The beat-'em-up combat, the art, and a lot of secondary gameplay is surprising and fun. Though its blend of gameplay variations feels unbalanced at times, and it isn't always the laugh-riot it tries to be, Battletoads is an entertaining little romp.

    Whatever its merits as a brawler, it's safe to say that in years to come no one will be ringing up game shops to preorder this one. [Issue#350, p.104]

    You Dyin' a lot?! It is Battletoads! not a plain and straight beat'm up?! It is Battletoads! Nice and smooth graphics with some modern contextYou Dyin' a lot?! It is Battletoads! not a plain and straight beat'm up?! It is Battletoads! Nice and smooth graphics with some modern context (Except for the Dark Queen, oh God how i miss the old one), tight and responsive controls, plenty of achievements, some humor (Yes, since Space Toads are a so sensitive and serious theme we can't accept some humor on it, right?!). The franchiseleft aside the gloomy and dark atmosphere from the past and now it is coloured and bright, another concept, both good. If you are a fan and you are not a nostalgic (Even if you did not played the previous instalments since you were not born that time) pain in the ♥♥♥, you will probably like this one and you will enjoyed with your kids and wife and family. Highly recommend for the franchise fans and newcomers, mainly if you are a Ricky and Morty fan(Ryan Ridley wrote this one here).

    PS: The soundtrack is KILLER ! ! ! ! !

    El juego empezó bien pero luego empiezan los mini juegos estúpidos, aburridos y obligatorios... No pierdas tu tiempo y tu dinero.

    This trash parasitizes on a famous name. All aspects are bad, this cheap crap made just to fill Game Pass.
