Review: Battletoads is a brutally brilliant reboot worthy of the cult classic

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

Key Credits
Paul Collins (Lead designer), Tom Kauffman (Lead writer)

Much like the NES original, Battletoads is an epic adventure with heaps of charm, fun combat and brutal challenge. While its fight system may be a little over convoluted, mastering it pays off with satisfying, hard-fought, snot-covered victory.

  • Playful, funny slapstick story
  • Fun and varied enemy types and levels
  • Satisfying combat loop
  • Controls can feel over-complicated
5 / 5
