Movie tie-in games have had a bad name for as long as they have existed.
They tend to be weak games using the name of a popular movie to sell more
copies.  Batman Returns is something of an exception.  Batman Returns is
much, much worse than any other movie cash-in I have ever seen.  After the
reasonable quality title-pictures have outlined a seemingly irrelevant
prologue you get to take the part of a small Batman sprite as he leaps and
dances like a badly controlled marionette in an attempt to kick and punch
on-coming assailants. The control is nearly intuitive but slow to react;
you'll find it difficult to do much damage to individual enemies, never mind
several at once and after Batman gets knocked out on the first level you'll
feel no desire to play any more.  Recycle it.
