This is the exact same issue I had with SOR4.  More expressive or more fluid animation does NOT equate to less detail!!!  The original Battletoads, including the higher res arcade port, had all kinds of goofy cartoonish animations that were still loaded with a ton of shading and detail.  Now it just looks like a current gen Rayman clone which ironically still has more detail than this.  Also the Dark Queen is no longer hot.  Yeah that's a deal breaker.  You know if we had been getting regular Battletoads sequels since the early 90's it would have been perfectly acceptable to try a new art style like this.  The thing is, we haven't.... so make Battletoads look like Battletoads.

The issue with SOR4 was the hit boxes were crap and the enemy could hit you in ways you couldn't hit them. They could fix all that with updates but really made me wonder how much time they actually spent playing the genesis games..

I said all I have on SOR4 on the SOR4 thread so wont get into that heh.

But yeah the Dark Queen now looks like some Japanese school girl or something, Just doesn't look right at all, And the toads are square!

I was unsure about the SOR4 artwork direction at the start but it grew on me, This is just a straight up day 1 hate from me though.
