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

    Battletoads revives what was thought to be a long-dead franchise without missing a step. The game benefits from modernized game mechanics but maintains the overall gameplay feel of the original titles. If you have fond memories of the earlier titles, it’s a no brainer that this is a title worth playing. The game does rely on nostalgia, but this is one of the better reboots around. Battletoads succeeds at making a game look and feel modern while maintaining the essence of what made it good so many years ago. Battletoads does offer a variety of different modes in addition to primarily being a beat ’em up title. It’s a truly ridiculous game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and it’s good to see that after such a long break the ‘Toads are still on top of their game.

    Battletoads is a stunning return for both the toads and Rare, a team that hasn't had much output recently. While it can become a little tedious to play alone, this is an excellent game to try with a small group of friends on a Friday night. Humour, variety of gameplay, and local co-op make this a great addition to anyone's library.

    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.

    With a new face and tone, Battletoads manages to reinvent itself a little bit. It produces a beat 'em up that makes all kinds of forays into other genres with a sense of humor. Just like the jokes in the story, that is not always successful. The Battletoads shine as animated stars, but the lack of co-op, the very simple gameplay, and the sometimes very stretched areas do not make them look that great as video game heroes.

    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 ! ! ! ! !

    ¡¡Madre mía, qué decepción de videojuego!! Se supone que Battletoads es una saga de golpes estilo Street of Rage y lo que menos hay es¡¡Madre mía, qué decepción de videojuego!! Se supone que Battletoads es una saga de golpes estilo Street of Rage y lo que menos hay es precisamente eso...
    Desde ya, se nota que el juego fue dado a un estudio cualquiera a menor medida no siendo pretencioso, ya sea por el horrible estilo caricaturesco de animación de caricatura de TV actual totalmente genérico o por el humor muy soso y forzado que no saca ninguna risa (donde se supone que uno se debe reír...).
    Lo segundo es que el juego es bastante simplón, empieza como cualquiera hubiera imaginado, pegando piñas por doquier, pero luego este juego es de todo menos un Battletoads: Plataformas bastantes simplistas, carreras con obstáculos, rompecabezas (innecesarios y tediosos), matamarcianos (lo más divertido de lo no pelea) y, lo peor, un exceso de QTE (Quick Time Events) que en ningún juego dio diversión y obviamente mucho menos lo hará aquí, siendo esto lo que más me cansó (junto a los rompecabezas aburridos).
    En fin, creo que desperdiciaron una buena oportunidad de poner al juego en donde se merece. El exceso de QTE y de géneros que no caracterizan al Battletoads es de lo peor del juego, pero también su estilo visual de caricatura actual genérica y un "humor" e historia bastante soso y sin ninguna gracia.
    Hay muchos indies mejores que este supuesto AAA (o AA en su defecto) que van a dar muchísima más diversión (Castle Crashers, por ejemplo).
    En resumen: Lo mejor, la música, que si bien no es ni de cerca memorable va bien con el estilo de Battletoads. Los pocos niveles de puños y los niveles de matamarcianos. Otra cosa buena es que afortunadamente no gasté en el juego, sólo pagué Game Pass, lo jugué desde ahí y confirmé que el juego iba a ser decepcionante (como ya intuía).
    Lo peor, horrible diseño artístico, horrible decisión de poner géneros que no van con el juego con plataformas vacías y QTE excesivos, pésimo humor, sin juego en línea y duración cortísima.
    Mediocre.

The OG battle toads were a testament to game design for their time and this is how they are represented in the future what an embarrassment.. The toads them selves are just immature, spurting fart humor and childish dialogue. Then there fan favorite characters like "The Dark Queen" Once a Sexy Powerful bad ass Feme Fatal, a woman that not only was a genius but a general to her armies. Now she is an ugly bony idiot, just the blandest most irritating and uninspired female character you could imagine. She blabbers on like an immature child and has the wit of a bag of soap. The original Dark Queen had more personality with less than one 10th the dialogue. From what I have heard this was some sort of feminist decision , to make her completely unappealing to the male audience. Which they succeeded to do, but she is unappealing to everyone, the whole game is, no one playing the game. Men just ignore the product and the few woman that become aware are just offended by this ridicules representation of a once actually beloved and memorable female character.
    Way to ruin your once great past Rare.
