Joker, director and co-writer Todd Phillips’ dark and violent attempt to tell the origin story of one of the nastiest comic book villains of all time, is, like the character at the centre of it all, hard to define, but leaves an indelible impression.
Let’s face it; Batman is the man. More to the point, Batman is one of the greatest superheroes ever created, and the idea of jumping into his Bat-boots to fight his Bat-criminals is bound to make for great gameplay. Funny though that it’s been years since there was a great Batman game available. For that matter, there have been relatively few truly great superhero games to speak of, aside from Spider-Man 2 and the quasi-hero title, inFamous.
