Also apart from the Joker, how do they visually handle the other main Batman enemies? Does it come close to the animated series in terms of character designs? How does the scarecrow look for instance?

He looks creepy as hell.  I can't find a pic but it looks like he has a modified gas mask on. Just finished Scarecrow last night. That was a great little section, though too easy. You really have to strategize for some of these thug fights. I get disappointed when I defeat a group of thugs, then walk around and discover there were cooler ways to take them out.

I've heard a couple of Metroid comparisons. In what way does that design manifest itself? Just the items to upgrade and unlock areas? Visors?

Its a large world in which you progress from area to area and as you play you see places you cant get to yet. As you play you get more and more tools which open more of those areas, some are for secrets, sometimes the game has you return to a certain location to go a new route. You also have the batvision which allows you to see enemies through walls. The visiors are also used to find any standout objects and used to follow a trail when you do detective work (find an item and scan it, nothing complicated).

Game is finished, ask questions. Took me around 15 hours, still have about 20 Riddler challenges to find.

You play as the Joker on the PS3 version only, he has challenge maps.

I guess.. I got hairy arms and hairy legs, my chest gets semi hairy, as I said not a giant coat like Austin Powers or anything.

you said you could only play as Joker in the ps3 version ... so there is additional content in the ps3 version?  or just different bonus stuff in each version?

Listen to Wu-Tang and watch Kung-Fu

PS3 got an exclusive deal, Joker is only on PS3. 360 gets nothing special.

Thanks.

Question: did you see Batmans tiny penis then as the Joker?

What is the point of playing as the Joker? What is his motivation in the game? Do you follow a different storyline or is it a skin swap?

The Joker is only playable on the challenge map set, a series of maps where you fight bad guys. No storyline.

Ack.

So is fighting reminiscent of Batman returns at all? Simple combat with one button is actually a plus point to me.

What about the atmosphere, does it have blood and swearing?

Atmosphere is great. Dark corridors where you can hide in shadows to freak bad guys out, not too much swearing fromwhat I could tell, although I haven't played the full game yet. Not bloody at all. And yeah, combat is simple but extremely satisfying.
