We’re utterly amazed that the game wasn’t timed to match the Dark Knight’s theatrical release, but we’re guessing that the developers had to save something to go along with the movie’s eventual DVD debut. What new Batman game, you ask? The one Gary Oldman let out of the bag while being interviewed by the unusually restrained Kristin Holt of G4, of course. She must be as starstruck as the rest of us, because she normally seems to have tapped the energy of a small sun during her bits on Cheat!
Nonetheless, if you were looking for some validation from Commissioner Gordon himself, then you came to the right place. After musing about his supposed “small role” in the game, Oldman talked about how developers were looking to make sure Batman’s gliding sequences were as smooth as butter — or as you techy types like to say, seamless.
While we can’t comment on his role in the game, we can gush about how great the movie turned out. If EA (or whoever does this one) can manage to translate that masterpiece into something that works with a controller — we’ll have a slew of other words to describe the experience. Hopefully, it will start with Holy Sh*t, this is the one Batman game to rule them all!
