Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, based on the 2000 animated feature film, the greatest villain of all comes out of the past to threaten Batman, Bruce Wayne and all of Gotham City. The sleeker, deadlier and seemingly immortal Clown Prince of Crime is back with his own unique brand of havoc and mayhem. While trying to uncover the Joker's secrets, the new Batman, Terry McGinnis, discovers the greatest mystery in the life of the original Caped Crusader: What happened the night he fought the Joker for the last time. When Bruce Wayne is almost killed in one of the Joker's latest attacks, Batman vows to avenge his mentor and put the Joker to rest forever. The game is a heart-stomping action, awesome adventure and amazing revelations. The gameplay is simple: you must combat and defeat the Joker's latest incarnation in side-scrolling, hand-to-hand combat action. You'll have weapons and gadgets at your disposal including the Magnetic Nun Chaku, Retractable Wings, and The Dark Knight Discus. Challenge the dark forces of Gotham in five distinct Batsuits, each with its own unique capabilities. You'll need all the help you can get as you venture through 16 levels in four environments.
The game features excellent graphics, with colorful 3D environments and fluidly animated characters. I liked the color-palette being chosen. As far as the douns, the in-game tune just rocks along with several digitized sound effects!
