Battletoads review: creative cartoon clobbering courtesy of some crusty croakers

    It's a shame I'll never complete this due to requirements that are completely out of my hands. I'll never find two other people to play Battletoads in the same room, much less get them together long enough to stay alive for 5 minutes on bikes. Sucks. cry

    Strange how much money these games cost to make but somehow adding online play is still an afterthought. It's 2020 ffs

    No online means I'll be giving this a skip. Such a dumb idea not to include that.

    Nice that they have couch co-op, but they could have also added an online MP as well.

    Also, nice to see reviews hopefully picking back up on this site. It's been kind of baron in the review department on TA.

    Does player 2 and player 3 also unlock achievements?

    Just played the first couple levels and I have to say, I'm enjoying it much more than I thought I would. The art style looks much more impressive than it did in the trailers, the humor is pretty funny, and the gameplay is varied. Sucks that I won't ever 100% it, but I still recommend checking it out.

    Glad you enjoyed it.
    I’m looking forward to playing it (on my alt account thanks to those cheevos).

    From the things I read about going on over there, you might have to actually escape the state like a Minnesota Snake Plissken.

    I just don't get how one of Microsoft's major first party developers can release a game without online play, even if they had to go the Streets of Rage 4 route and limit online to 2 players. But, the Scott Pilgrim game did get an update and add online later on after it's release, so it's possible.

    Looks like a fun game to play but the co-op achievements would be tough to get. I mean...I can convince friends and family to come over to play Just Dance but I could never get them to play a game like this.

    I dunno, they sound like cheese-able achievements if you have a couple of spare controllers. Doesn't state that all 3 need to be on the bikes for 5 minutes straight, you could maybe reload over and over until it pops. Gonna look into it once the game installs.

    I'll check it out on an alt account. If they add online eventually I'll aim to master it on my main with a few of you fine folks.

    A solution for the co-op achievements could possibly be if Microsoft adds something like remote-play on steam for Xbox Series X. But yeah, not buying controllers for an achievement lol

    If that's the case, then it's manageable. It'll be annoying as hell but doable. I have 3 controllers but I'm not Doctor Octopus.

    TA should make it so we can make actual, physical gaming sessions, locally lol.

    The host has the session at his/her house and invites TA members in the same state/province/country over for couch co-op achievement hunting haha.

    How hard is this game compared to like Cuphead or Dark Souls? The old Battletoads has a bit of a reputation lol
