The Weekly Planet: 1989 Batman Sega Game
In Episode 59 of The Weekly Planet podcast, hosts James Clement and Nick Mason discuss superhero film franchises that have been turned into video games.
In this clip they banter about Batman: The Video Game, released for the Sega Mega Drive console system (Sega Genesis in the US) in the early 1990s and based on the 1989 film directed by Tim Burton.
They joke about the seeming sameness of the game play in many of these film-inspired games, regardless of the type of action in the original film.
