Description of Batman Forever

This is a platform game based on the hit movie of the same name.

Batman Forever uses Acclaim's Mortal Kombat engine, which started to show its age in 1996 but is still capable of delivering fluid, nonstop action. The game follows the movie's plot quite closely, so as Batman you will run into familiar foes such as The Joker and Two-Face.

Repetitive enemies and very easy bosses make this an only average game, although it is arguably better than more-hyped Batman Forever: The Arcade Game, which was also published by Acclaim but developed by OCEAN. The ability to change your weapons in mid-game is a nice touch, as well as fun appearances of Robin and Catwoman.

Play this only if you're a Batman fan, or really like the Mortal Kombat engine.

The Genesis version is easily the most accessible version. It might not have the best graphics, but it's up there in terms of graphics and sound. I'd even argue the Yamaha sound-chip gives it that nice Arcade-y crunch.

Genesis version also has easier to understand controls and movelists. This is definitely a game hardcore Mortal Kombat fans might enjoy. I believe there was a Russian Bootleg of Mortal Kombat Mythologies - Sub Zero that plays similar to Batman beyond.

My gosh... I did loved that game, back on the Sega Megadrive!.. And I've finished it.
So since then I wanted to make it over. DOS version is better then Genesis one, it have more graphics colors and digitized voice... Yet it's freaking clunky and I will try it again, yet, I think the next walkthrough will be on YouYube
Damn it looks 2x speed (and I like it)

the game says fmv.ini not fount before starting game in dosbox (After mounting image )... what to do???

This game is broken. It's missing a lot of things, the original game disc has 489MB of content, audio, movies, textures. The version of this website has 8MB and it's pretty much broken, no movies, no audio like songs.

How can I get the music and FMVs to work for this download? I can launch the game with sound effects, but the FMVs and music don't play.
