5.0 out of 5 stars An NES legend, in scope and difficulty... February 19, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At the time this game was notorious for its inability of most of the general public to get past level 3. Most kids at the time just couldn't. And for a game that has it's content so well designed for kids (a TMNT rip-off, 'toad tongue-in-cheek) this is unfortunate since the dynamics of each of the 12 levels are incredibly varied. Really the game itself isn't a kid's difficulty level. I've heard many deem it the TOUGHEST NES game ever, arguably more so than even Metroid. Because much of it can only be done from memorizing the map (like dodging walls in the speeder / level 3), it will invariably take a few games PER LEVEL. There are no passwords although there are warps (a real gamer won't need them). There's many, many highlights beyond 'level 3' - the Surf level, the giant snakes, the Elevator Shaft, and if you're lucky, the Dark Queen's tower. You'll be doing anything from fighting 'Double Dragon' style to Castlevania-platforming to dodging obstacles in your plane, unicycle, speeder, whatever. The monsters and sense of humor the game provides make the whole thing move magnificently + STILL make me wonder if this has a cancelled cartoon show pilot somewhere...

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic game December 4, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was one of the many lost youngsters that couldn't get past level 3 of Battletoads. So many years on, in today's day and age, with my sleek grey hair and walking stick at my side, when I have the time, and the arthritis in my thumbs is bearable, I still play this game. Why?

Without exaggeration, it is one of the greatest games ever made in my experience. Displaying some awesome graphics for it's time, stomping soundtracks, an incredible blend of fighting and platform adventure, and through such a vast variety of levels, it presents a great challenge to even the most experienced game player.

The toughness of this game should not deter any prospective player, no matter your experience. It was published by Tradewest (who you might recognise from the Double Dragon series), and developed by RARE, who got the vital ingredient of this game down to perfection. That vital ingredient being: Playability. Although the game is difficult, especially for newcomers, it is still extremely playable, which gives it an almost everlasting appeal.

It is true, that you simply cannot play parts of this game without trial and error, meaning that you ARE going to die, many times!! But in doing so, you begin to LEARN (however long this takes), until you are able to skillfully overcome the many obstacles and master each level. From the beginning to the final stages, this game has been set up with many intricate, and ingeniously designed tricky situations to work your way through. Such situations can be frustrating at times, on a bad day, you might just give up, but they make it all the more satisfying when you are able to overcome them, in your battles to arrive at the next stage.

Battletoads
2 Stars - So much potential, but the difficulty really prevents most players from getting very far

Ah yes, "Battletoads". In gaming culture, this game is home to one of THOSE levels. You know, the kind that appeared impossible when you first played it, and then . . . after a broken controller and lots and lots of swear words and three hours later STILL appears impossible.

Then you YouTube the level, and like watching someone play Eddie Van Halen's Guitar Instrumental "Eruption", you see someone pass the level with (oh God) apparent ease! These players must be cheating!

There are lots of levels like this in the NES catalogue. "Adventure Island" 8-3. "Ninja Gaiden" 6-2 and then the end bosses. "The Legend of Zelda" Dungeon Six. The Dam level on "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". (At least with TMNT at least the title of the level makes you feel like you're swearing which is probably pretty cool when you're twelve). Pretty much the ENTIRETY of the nightmare that is "Ghost and Goblins". Also "Silver Surfer".

Of course the level I am referring too is the speed bike level, which is the third one early on in the game.

"Battletoads" is one of those games that Tradewest, the developer, had crafted in hopes of turning into a TMNT type franchise. Colorful characters, over the top villians (in this case a Darak Queen), and anthromorphic toads. For early 1990s the concept fit right into popular culture.

There's only one problem. The game is hard. As hell.

Yes, you want challenges. But honestly, so many people stop at level 3 because they can't get past the friggin' stage. And this was a game marketed for kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars If You Have Time On Your Hands, Bring The Ruckus May 13, 2014
By Jorge
This is a near perfect game. I am a huge fan, but, it's incredibly hard. It's not cheap. There's no cheap losses here, and there's nothing you can really fault the game for, it's just hard. It's old school hard, and you are going to find yourself battling your way through levels and levels a lot. If you have time on your hands, bring your A game, make a pot of coffee and settle in for one challenge that will not stop. It's 100 times harder than Contra, but when you make it through to the end, you will feel this incredible euphoria, something that gives this 3 stars. However, 2 stars down for time consumption and difficulty. Do not take that wrong, this is a beast of a game, and well worth purchasing. I love it, when I have a lot of time on my hands. You won't beat it at first, you just won't.
