    After a rocky few years, this is Telltale back on top form, with one of our new favourite Batman stories in any medium. [June 2018, p.85]

    Batman: The Enemy Within is a real treat for all the Caped Crusader fans out there: the second season of Telltale's Batman offers a great reimagining of the Joker's origins, meaningful choices that truly affect the plot, and the usual, well written and intense storyline. Definitely, a must have.

    Batman: The Enemy Within is an excellent Telltale Games title in story and execution, but probably won't change the hearts or minds of players who want more choice efficacy in their adventure games.

    With Batman: The Enemy Within, Telltale Games performs no miracles but delivers an epic adventure full of twists and turns, of schemes and colorful characters.

    Although it improves the result of the first season, Telltale still has work ahead with the license of one of the most iconic characters of DC and their own vision and history.

    Despite interesting choices that alter events, Batman: The Enemy Within is not quite a stellar experience. Watching Joker come alive as he interacts with Bruce is alluring and the finale is impressive, but the second season squanders the best features of the original season and has the same problems as Telltale’s other recent efforts.

    The Enemy Within is less unpleasant than Guardians of the Galaxy or Minecraft: Story Mode in the same way catching a cold is less unpleasant than getting a full-blown flu. [06/2018, p.48]

The story feels good, if you want a continued story to the first season. The feature, where relationships alter, when you make a decision is also a step forward. Of course the story is still pretty much happening, no matter what you chose, but its a damn good story till now (Episode 2) Expand

    Marginal but still noticeable improvement over 1st season in terms of story, but a hell of an improvement in terms of performance, the way howMarginal but still noticeable improvement over 1st season in terms of story, but a hell of an improvement in terms of performance, the way how badly first season ran quite negatively impacted my overall experience, so im delighted Telltale got their tool together.

    In Enemy Within whats most that stands out is the interplay between you as Bruce Wayne/Batman and John Doe/Joker, great and clever writing from Telltale ready made this a unique Joker origin story and offered many morally challenging yet satisfying choices on how you want to forge your relationships with John. It was also fun interacting with supporting cast, guessing with whom you should align, support and work together and what kind of secret agendas they might have. It was really interesting to shape the choices based on those factors. One perhaps annoying bit was that there were few, yet annoying plot holes, for me mainly concerning Catwoman, i dont usualy cry about plot holes but here since Catwoman's my favorite side character, it did do my head in a bit.

    And speaking of choices, just like in Guardians of the Galaxy, it feels Telltale have again made them feel even more impactful, even if it would be an illusion, its bloody well done and you can feel them as the story tends to branch out in several different ways.

    Overall its another great effort from Telltale, hoping for season 3 in near future.

    Does a really solid job of stressing you out over the heavy decision making Batman must go through constantly and has a good narrative to backDoes a really solid job of stressing you out over the heavy decision making Batman must go through constantly and has a good narrative to back it up. It’s interpersonal relationships are always tense and changing keeping you engaged and the narrative racks up to a seriously tense and shocking finale. The gameplay may be subpar with moments of real ingenious problem solving but as a visual interactive graphic novel? It really doesn’t get better than this. A haunting spin on the Batman and Joker relationship. Expand

    Good storytelling, as always.

    Compared to the previous part about Batman, better graphics and new mechanics added.
