Batman AA: Ingame trailer

Batman AA: Ingame trailer

Eidos released this new in-game trailer of Batman: Arkham Asylum, in low definition for the moment though. It actually looks quite good!
Update: Added the 720p version of the trailer, along with an image gallery.

Love it. It looks good. Especially the way the cape moves. The voice acting is good as well. Let's hope this turns out as well as it looks, because I want to be Batman.

I'm sure they would be willing to if you took the time to use the shift key ^.^ I tease, I tease, and I agree, this game could be amazing if its polished properly. I would hate for this to become another Fable 2 =(
Looks excellent visually, very nice modeling and lighting, although there are some moments with excessive bloom or something, which I am not at all digging. Gameplay looks like it has potential too, but I think the presentation and the story is gunna be the real killer in this game, assuming they get it off right anyway =)

All I can say is please don't screw this up! This looks amazing so far- way better than I was expecting. That was the first time in a long while where I felt compelled to watch a trailer twice in a row...

great trailer. Looks awsome

My most anticipated game of 2009, by a clear mile.

It just oozes atmosphere.

Am I wrong or are those the greatest Batman voices ever from the 90's Animated Series?

Mark Hammel ftw?

I can't wait to see this game in motion. I hope there's going to be a demo. I haven't been this excited about a superhero game in forever.

Hell to the yeah.

The trailer is awesome though - I can't stop watching it. "Now let's get this party started!"

that would be awesome. GTA4/fallout 3 have proved you can still have a tight story around open world. It does look like you do get out of the asylum in the trailer though..atleast i hope you do.

I'm more interested in seeing how the skill level ups work
Commented on 2009-02-02 14:35:43
Well, Well, Well... never expected much from this. I have to say, it's looking fantastic!
Commented on 2009-02-02 15:08:12
Wow! Terrific voice acting...
Commented on 2009-02-02 17:56:10
The texture detail is unbelivable!

Just hope it isn't anothger heavenly Sworld... so much Character detail pre-game... and in in-game stuff the game is actually a letdown.

Escape from butcher all took place pretty much in the same place and I for one enjoyed that game =P Actually, this game reminds me of butcher bay a little bit at times.

Anywho I'm stoked.

Great voice acting, check
Great visuals, check
Great atmosphere, check
Great looking story setup, check

now for a little more proof of solid gameplay (what really matters) and thats one impressive list right there.
As for the open world comments, I would kill for a GTA style open world game with batnam driving around gotham in the batmobile but the graphics would take a big hit. This game looks really promising, whether it's all in the same location or not.
Commented on 2009-02-02 20:15:40
Great voice acting? Based on those few generic sentences? Right...

Looks awesome though, graphically impressive and the animations kick serious ass! Though, I'd like to see some actual gameplay to see how the animation transitions hold up.

Looking interesting indeed. I myself have absolutely nothing with this superhero culture that mainly Americans seem to have, but I always appreciate a good game.
Commented on 2009-02-02 21:43:42
Holy crap, did the voice over work for the Batman the Animated series do this game? Batman sounds just like Kevin conroy and joker does sound similar, but i don't think its Mark Hamill

wow, the game does look amazing..seems like they really like Jim lee's artwork ;)

If they have followed Jim lee's artwork for other characters, poison ivy is going to look like a mega babe :P

It is Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.
Commented on 2009-02-02 22:54:06
^ ^It's Mark Hamill, he sounds a little different because he's getting old...
Commented on 2009-02-02 23:06:22
I think its Hamilll, but he may have had to alter his voice to sound darker. (or he's getting old like Frozpot said)
Commented on 2009-02-03 00:58:53
lol, batman's face is exactly the same in pic 6/7/8/9

im really not liking the design of batman...and i dont know why. im a fan of jim lee's batman, but something looks weird. i dont know if its the suit itself, or the model. his shoulders look redicilously round and big. yeah, the guys muscular, but its kinda looking out of proportion.

joker on the other hand looks awesome.

About the game

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (2 Hours ago)
