    Battletoads is back in the best possible way. A must-have within Xbox Game Studios.

    Battletoads is a game that shouldn’t work in 2020. The originals were brutal tests of patience and I mean come on, it has been nearly three decades. Who under 30 actually remembers these characters? Still, for someone like me it is a real treat to see Microsoft once again return a former beloved Rare property back to its glory. I like where this is going and if we can bring the rest of the crew back, I will once again relive my youth. Banjo, Conker, and Joanna are next on the docket, let’s hope they see the same love and care as these toads have.

    The offshoot is that there are likely to be one or two sections that might rub players the wrong way. But it is exactly that manic energy that makes the return of Battletoads such a welcome treat.

    The return of Battletoads is a game in many ways surprising and made with extreme care. But the desire to do too much makes him lose his lucidity and ends up watering down an adventure that is too short in itself.

    What hurts this 2020 take on a beloved franchise is an inability to stay to course for long enough to whet the appetites of long time fans. The brawling segments are too few and far between, and while the other game modes that pop up are very well designed and executed, you will find yourself longing for fewer of them, so that you can swing your fists for longer.

    The new version of Battletoads lacks character and seems that it's trying to escape its past. The game starts strong, but as you progress it loses its steam and becomes an average experience that can only excite the fans of the series at best.
  7. 40
    While the art style and crude humor may be the most polarizing aspects on the surface, the lack of any consistency when it comes to gameplay and level design is the real disappointment in what was supposed to be the triumphant return of Battletoads.

    Game is definetly a quality one, one of the best and most varied beat m ups out there. Its just fun to paly and the humor is great. Try it out on GamePass at least, its a really fun game. I was off with the design as well first but if you actually play the game, its just grow on you.

Great 2D animation and overflowing with vibrant colours and ideas. However; I feel the game lacks depth compared to other games in the beat em up genre. Even ones made in the 80's and 90's. Non the less it is a great time. Expand

    Я в детстве прошел все части боевых жаб! Являюсь фанатом! Разработчики Battletoads 2020 не поняли что фанатам серии уже за 30 лет!)) И детскийЯ в детстве прошел все части боевых жаб! Являюсь фанатом! Разработчики Battletoads 2020 не поняли что фанатам серии уже за 30 лет!)) И детский мультяшный стиль рисовки игры это плохая идея! Фанаты плюются от такой картинки! Такое ощущение что игра для детей...а детям эти боевые жабы на хрен не нужны, у них свои герои!
    Из плюсов отмечу хорошую музыку!)))
