    The story centered on John Doe and Bruce Wayne (the Joker and Batman) is why you should play Batman: The Enemy Within. The rest of the characters and narrative are mediocre, but this interpretation of the clown prince of crime is so strong that it makes it all worth it.

    Batman: The Enemy Within is an improvement on the first season in nearly every way, with enhanced combat sequences, a strong presentation and voice cast and an engrossing relationship between Batman and the Joker that produces some memorable and heart-wrenching moments that feel well-justified by the player’s choices up to those moments.

    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.

Yes, I know the game is easy in the technical aspect, but the story was great. I also loved that there were so many different villains and characters in the game ( much like Infinity Wars ), lots of depth and a worthwhile feeling while playing knowing there isn't a dozen other batman tell-tales coming, all with only one villain to feature. This one is definitely a rent, a buy for hardcore Batman fans, and a pass for anyone who doesn't like easy gameplay and a good story. Expand

As a long time fan I had fun seeing interactions that I have never seen in the Batman world before. Made the game a lot of fun in that respect.

    Sometimes Telltale gets criticized for not having a big enough change in your choices (and sometimes that's a fair point). I'm happy to say that the story that leads into Episode 5 can be completely different based on what you choose.

    Overall I'd definitely recommend this to any fan of the Telltale style and/or someone looking for a different twist on the Batman storytelling. I feel like this is an underrated game for this gen.

    Batman's story continues in season two. If you liked the first one you will like continuing with this one. I am a huge fan of Telltale GamesBatman's story continues in season two. If you liked the first one you will like continuing with this one. I am a huge fan of Telltale Games and as I already wrote about the first season, their Batman isn't as great as The Walking Dead of The Wolf Among Us is but it was worth playing. It was nice to see a Batman game designed by Telltale Games. Expand

    Got mixed feelings about this game.

    On the plus side, it's faster-paced than the original. No more too long conversations at the cafe or in Wayne Enterprises. However, the original did a better job of juggling the characters and storylines. Here, there is too much going on and too many characters. A character or story element will be gone too long and forgotten.

    Like the first game, the story tries some radical changes from the original Batman mythos, and like the first game I admire them for trying something different, but feel they stray too far at points. This game focuses a lot more on Bruce Wayne the person, which I felt was done pretty well, but was disappointed that you couldn't be Batman that often.

    As for the story options in this, a lot of the choices rely on moral ambiguity. Unfortunately, they do this too often and it gets old after a while. The game also relies way too often on choices that please one character and upset the other. I really liked what they did in chapter five. Most games of this type have divergent pathways but still follow a general storyline. Here, the entire story has two completely different storylines it can go based on your actions.

    The cell-shaded computer animation looks great. The developers seemed to have learned their lesson from the first game and they're no new characters with unusually thick necks. The voice acting cast do a great job. Lastly, the action sequences all impress.

    As much as I've discussed this game's weaknesses, I'd still probably get the next one that they will probably make. The game's not perfect, but it's... Well, I guess "interesting" is as good a word as any..

Take the Dark Knight, strip away the political intrigue, the organized crime intrigue, the interesting dynamic of how Batman interacts with the police, and replace them with the worst parts of the DC Cinematic universe, too many villains, not at all about what made batman great, and finally, force the player to play as Bruce Wayne for over 60% of the story. A truly pitiful showing, a weak and bland story that grips you as tightly as an arthritic malnourished child, and you've got the absolute dumpster fire that is Bruce Wayne the The Enemy Within.
