Battletoads Gamescom Gameplay (Looks God Awful!)

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Battletoads Gamescom Gameplay (Looks God Awful!)

Its not only the combat and visuals... the whole moods and jokes are off.They went with a kiddy feel all around, when they should have gone the opposite.Whoever ordered/developed this Battletoads game had no idea what the franchise was about.

Makes me long for the BattleToads arcade game. This is yet another effect of Microsoft's curse on Rare that they put on the company when they bought them.



Some days I just blow up.

The overcomplicated controls don't fit a beat'em up, either.

"Left trigger + X + Left analog to fire your tongue. TAP to pull yourself towards the enemy, HOLD to pull an enemy towards you."

WTF, man.

every time there was a tutorial message cleared a new one appeared for all 8 mins of this footage, also... you know the games pace is bad that 30 seconds into the video to show off the game the person is pressing start to try and skip the slow walking cutscene.

Looks honestly offensively bad, if this came from a tiny indie studio after a few months of work I would say something but this was a game which MS showed on stage at E3, and it looks like this.

First Microsoft killed Conker, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, and now BattleToads.

What's next, turning RC Pro-Am into the new Grand Theft Auto?

Russia does not like.

Didn't you see there was a trailer for that at yesterdays show?

Apparently it's 4k/60fps! Really looks good.

I think the new generations love the artstyle? Turtles also has a 'similar' artstyle.






I've been growing to that style, but in all honesty, I'd prefer TMNT current style, over what BT is currently offering.

Nostalgia is one hellva drug....  I really dislike that art style.

How I remember TMNT (and love em):

What I'd expect from a current gen game:

Loved the original show, but I would not want Bay touching any game at all. I saw what they did to Transformers...



                                       

The original game wasn't very good. I don't know why people would have great expectations built from that baseline.

if it even looked as good as the Gameboy port which came out 27 years ago... that would be nice.

1 whole KB of system memory and it is able to have vehicles and platforming, and gameplay which doesn't look a chore.
