Although the movie received mixed reviews from filmgoers, ''Batman Forever'' is considered by players to be a blockbuster table -- many consider it both one of Sega's best pinballs and the best [[Pinball/{{Batman}} Batman pinball]] from any manufacturer. The gameplay is fast and balanced, with a reasonably deep ruleset and skillful use of flowing ramps and looping shots throughout. Unfortunately, Sega's small marketshare and the movie's lackluster reception kept sales down; approximately 2,500 tables were produced, making this game an overlooked collector's item today.

Like the movie itself, this is a very brash and flamboyant game, where the goal is to take down Two-Face and The Riddler by completing various scenes from the film. Go on a Gotham City crime spree, race the Batmobile across rooftops, survive the Brain Drain, and collect the Riddler's Mystery Boxes. You'll also get to defuse the bomb at the circus, lock pinballs in the Batcave, and launch pinballs from the Batwing at playfield targets. Complete all six Gotham Events, then light up the Bat Signals and match Two-Face's two heads for a chance at FOREVER, a multiball frenzy that lasts... as long as you can manage.

* WizardMode: "Forever", which is only available after completing all Gotham Events, matching Two-Face's good and bad heads, and lighting up all of the bat signals on the playfield. It's a nonstop four-ball multiball scoring frenzy, and the goal is to collect jackpots by shooting pinballs into the Batwing. Unfortunately, the Batwing is constantly pivoting during "Forever", which means a mistimed shot will not get loaded or scored.
