My ONLY gripe is that the original Battletoads games probably pushed hardware harder than anything else at the time. They were trying to be playable cartoons, though.

This game appears to be trying to capture that spirit. It looks really fluid and fun. It may not innovate like those old games did (and hopefully the challenge is something a regular gamer can endure) but it should satisfy any fan from back then and maybe bring in some new fans.

Well isn't this games are intended to be like that? I mean that's the charm of Battle Toad.

I guess that aspect is ok. Hopefully they fix the Dark Queen's design though.

True. Remember how people got pissed off at the Wind Waker reveal back in 2002? Nowadays the game is regarded as a classic.

Funny enough, Wind Waker is probably the oldest 3d Zelda game that still holds up graphically.



Eh indeed, especially considering Cuphead's graphical style also exists.

Except Cuphead's art style is supposed to go with crazy cartoonish antics (which Battletoads does to an extent but still), as opposed to over the top violence.

I was hoping the new Battletoads was much more like the Battletoads arcade game from 1994.

Looks like a flash game. Horrendous.

I'm still not a fan of Link's character model.  Most everything around it was good though.

For what it's worth, like Wind Waker, I don't have many issues with the enemies outside of the Dark Queen.  Most of them are workable enough.



It looks like speed line drawings I used to do in photoshop to try and get used to working with a stylus. It looks terrible but I voted a little bad because the game looks a little better in motion.

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Looks like shit.
The gameplay looks fun tho.



Cheap enough to be given free on gamepass. Did you really expect quality from MS apart from halo gears forza? Not happening.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
