Mark Hamell, sorry to say, is a better Joker than Heath. You see, Heath made Joker scary, but Mark, no, he made him so much more. He's frightening, more insane, and more pure evil. RIP Heath, you changed the Joker for ever, for better and worse.
@Jak_Napier you're the best, too many people saying that Heath Ledger is the only person now who could fit into the Joker now just because of his performance in TDK... which is somewhat true in a way, as an actor in movies. But have any of you seen a Batman Villain that has appeared in more than one movie [Only one so far, is the Scarecrow, a very short one but still, the only Batman villain to appear twice. Jack Nicholson as the Joker, does not count] but maybe because of Ledger's performance, they might have done it again. He did say they were 'destined to do this forever'. @Adziboy you're um... iffy, to be kind. He's the main villain. He has those "funny" remarks. and Mark Hamil's work is great in The Animated Series. You have to watch it. you might as well have Christian Bale to compliment Heath's voice in the game. Kevin Conroy's work, also great. (I hated it when they changed the drawing style of the Joker in The New Batman Adventures, he looked less um... fill in the blank, can't think of the word right now) Oh, btw, Jak_Napier, what was that conversation about playing Wolverine for X360?
looks like a sweet game - great graphics. I've been saying this a while but this game looks great compared to other movie-based games.
@Adziboy Im not quite sure if you have @ all read any of the most recent posts or articles lately, but Mark Hamil is playing as the voice for the Joker. If your not familiar with his work, then watch 'Batman: the animated series'. Secondly if you have read any of the comics or know of any history or background ionfo on Arkham Asylum, The Joker is a well known inmate to arkham and is even regarded as a main leader or somebody who would direct the other inmates and well known villains of the Batman universe to do anything that he wished. The Joker overall, is the whole reason why Batman goes to arkham, he's kind of the focal point or the main centre piece of this game that ties it all in with unity that has truly defined him as a villian and a character. With that being said, if your still interested in the game, then keep posted and tune in for more updates in the coming months as we anticipate its June 23rd release date. I dont mean to come off harsh, but dude honestly how could the Joker not have a role or a voice for your sake, in the game.
This game looks really sweet, it's gonna be a blast to play. To respond to Adziboy, I think they are going to have Mark Hamil play the voice of the Joker because he did such an amazing job in "The Batman" cartoon. Besides, the Joker from this game is much more like the comic books than from the movies, both in look and style.
wow the graphics definetely look alot better than i thought they would. well done! i hope the joker has no voice in the game. they can reference him and u could prolly c him a couple times but u really cant have a joker voice without heath Seriously...that's just... facepalm.
@ 0.42 seconds onward there's a scene where its likely inside someones cell, and if your look carefully there is a green reflection on the wall. i think that it may be the riddler cause his suit has been known to be all green with a green bowler hat. Also in some of the screen shots there are question marks written on the walls with what could be blood. If you check my profile, i have a blog titled "Villains of Arkham Asylum Ta Da!" and it mentions all of the villains that are said to make an appearance in the game. Please check it out if your interested.
looks like the kind of game that's short, with small environments that have extra graphics and in which it's easy to get your hands full with things that aren't in your focus. Hopefully it's a lot more than that. But I'm always pessimistic about commercial games, just in case it's not as good as they present it.
looks really good from a graphic and atmosphere standpoint but you cant help but wonder why they just wont make a free roaming batman game. Now that would br brilliant!
Looks kinda like a dead space Jr. Except it's not in space. And nothing's dead. If you know what I mean.
Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay had the best atmospheric feeling i had ever experienced in any game even better than Bioshock. i get the same feeling that i had for Riddick for this game whenever i see it.
Visuals are excellent. Hopefully game play will be satisfying, can not wait to hear more info in the near future.
LOL, nice video, but no way one can comment without seeing some gameplay. Still, I have a good vibe about this one...
AMAZING!!! With mark reprising his role as joker and conroy as bats, its a batfan's dream come true. Definitely preorder the super/mega/deluxe collectors rare limited edition lol.

Wasn't this on the website like months ago... geez... I hope that silly Joker-version isn't going to stay in there though. I kind of hate it... way too childish...
it looks really good but anyone know what genure of game this is supposed to be? first person or somthing???
