Critic Reviews for Battletoads
Battletoads is another one of 2020's infamous oddities. I suspect it's going to be highly polarizing (not only due to the adherence to retro style difficulty but the newness of the art and humor), but it somewhat won me over due to sheer force of will. I also can safely assume that I'm going to be on the higher-end of the spectrum of liking it: but if we never see these dudes again because this game was an absolute cacophony, I'll be a bit bummed.
Without wishing to damn it with faint praise, Battletoads is pretty much exactly what you'd think it would be. Taking clear influence from the 90s classics whilst adding in some welcome modern approaches, there is plenty here to enjoy while it lasts. An ideal perfect Game Pass title, this is well worth checking out, warts and all.
Battletoads pays homage to the classic 1991 Rare game with a great variety of gameplay mechanics. Beat´em up levels are well crafted, 2D platform levels and twin stick shooter sections are not so good, but still enjoyable, while turbobikes levels are frustrating.
