The first thing that we’ll need to do at the start of the game is to press on the directional buttons when you see the Joker’s face in the centre of the screen. Continue to do so until the game moves on with business.

After another short scene, we’ll take control of a policeman in a diner. We’ll head up to the counter and after a moment or two be interrupted. Make your way to the far, left corner of the diner and approach the fellow who appears to be smoking. Hit the interact button next to him for a scene.

When you regain control, you can move around a little and shoot some of the monsters in the area if you like. After a short time, this scene will also draw to a close.

Interact with the smoker in the bar to kick things off (left). When in control of Batman, fly to the Bat Signal (right).

Batman time! We’ll start at the top of a relatively high building and we’ll see the Bat Signal in the distance – this will act as our waypoint marker for mission objectives and for custom waypoints that we place on the map. As such, make your way over there practicing your gliding and using your Batclaw. When you arrive, you’ll get another tidbit of story action.

Its time to get cracking on the story!
