It mainly just shows the environment, but you can hear the Joker's laugh at the end... it's awesome to hear Mark Hamill do this voice again

Kind of cool, but I'm really not interested in playing a Batman game, especially one about hand-to-hand combat.

That looks pretty cool. And I might be mistaken, but is that Hans Zimmer's music in the trailer?

It doesn't really show that much, but I hope this game turns out well.

I believe it's a piece from Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard from one of the new Batman films. It might be off the TDK soundtrack because it sounds incredibly familiar.

Anyway, that game looks like it's got the typical Batman pathetically forced grim tone to things. Can't wait to not play it.

Man, I used to love Mark Hamill's Joker, but that laugh just isn't as haunting anymore once you've heard Ledger cackle.

I'm definitely interested in this game and hope it actually delivers where so many Batman games have failed before...being its own game and having no relation to the new films is a plus!

The music in the trailer feels reminiscent of the score for the Batman films but doesn't seem to sound exactly like any particular track from either of the Batman films. So that makes me happy, i had worried they might just try and live off of the recent success from TDK.

Still Mark Hamill > Heath Ledger for the Joker's voice.

Making a Batman game without fighting is like making a Call of Duty game without guns.

Well that wasn't very impressive. It barely showed us anything. And is it just me, or has Mark Hamill's Joker voice totally lost it's potency? After Heath Ledger it just seems... weak.

if its anything like Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, which it already sounds and looks like, it will be awesome.

What was special about Heath Ledger's laugh? I don't really remember anything about it besides it's a bit high pitched.

I wasn't talking about their laughs, I was talking about their voices. Heath Ledger was Joker in The Dark Knight, and Mark Hamill was Joker in The Animated Series. We've heard both of their voices before, and I think Ledgers Joker voice (and laugh) sounds better because it sounds more shrill, venomous, and menacing to me. It's not like I'm basing my opinion on jack shit.

Just a little taste, but it certainly made me want to taste a little more.

I think Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard would have written a different score for this game that best reflex the Jokers insanity because the music in the movie I think reflex the Joker's actions of chaos.
But, I heard that Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard wrote about 3 hours of music and Christopher Nolan remembered it all, so some of the music might not have made the movie of the soundtack.

2nd
What game engine is being used to make this?

3rd
If the gameplay is anything like the Chronicles of riddick butchers bay, im fine with it
