World Of Nintendo LOVES Its Bat Guano... Forever

Yes, I'm reusing this image rather than crap out a clean one. It's relevant even if the date isn't.

So I found myself visiting the World Of Nintendo website and out of mock curiosity, I checked out their reviews for the SNES Bat Guano Forever game that I reviewed months ago. There were two reviews that were positive for some reason.

One reviewer gave it an 8.7 out of 10, saying that "It is a pretty good game, not my fav. or least fav. It's a so-so, basically just regular. I'm glad I own it anyway, it passes time and, as I said, is good for about 1 hour at a time. My advice is that you rent it first, don't just buy it, because there is a fair chance that you won't like it even though you probably will."

No, pal. I didn't like it. And I never will.

The other reviewer gave it a lower but still way to high 7 out of 10, citing that the game is"better than the first two in the Batman series for the Super NES. However, a lot could have been done to improve it. The buttons to use weapons could have been simplified, or there could have been a menu to activate different weapons, as with other games like the Mega Man series."

So apparently, this game is better than Batman Returns, a genuinely good game from Konami that somehow got a six out of ten. Right...

To be fair, both reviews acknowledge the flaws of the game, but still, an 8.7 and 7 for an outright terrible game? Different strokes for different folks, I suppose.

Strangely enough, there aren't any reviews for the Game Boy version. I guess there are some lines even World of Nintendo won't touch, eh?
