    Batman: The Telltale Series started strong and ended the same way, and with many characters’ fates left undecided and new characters appearing in the final act, a second season seems inevitable — I look forward to it.

    Perhaps Batman: The Telltale Series’ greatest flaw is inconsistency; playing each episode separately can make some of the weaknesses of the lesser episodes, like technical issues and poor pacing, more apparent in a way that most other Telltale series do not suffer from. But, for players who can dive into the full series all at once, Telltale’s Batman easily stands strong as one of the Dark Knight’s greatest video game outings, providing a gripping tale that clearly separates itself from a standard Batman affair.

    Telltale Games’s take on the Dark Knight is a much-needed step forward in terms of placing gamers in Batman’s boots.

    Fresh, agile action is what Batman, the new series of Telltale game is about. Fantastic OST and Troy Baker as Bruce. Telltale needs to take care of some issues with the coding of their games so they can be perfect.

    Telltale keeps making the same mistakes as usual, with technical issues that burden the overall experience. Even so, this Batman is interesting enough to keep you playing for the whole five chapters where Bruce Wayne gains the spotlight he didn't have outside comics.

    With so many Dark Knight adventures in our movies, TV, comics, and video games, you have to do something special to stand out. In the first few episodes, it looked like Batman: The Telltale Series might actually bottle lightning and create something excellent. But as the finale rolls in, it series fails to separate itself from the many Batman outings we’ve already experienced elsewhere.

    An underwhelming Batman game, but a great Bruce Wayne one. A satisfying counterpart to Rocksteady's Arkham games, but it won't win over Telltale naysayers. [Feb 2017, p.93]

    Really enjoyed it. Was like experiencing a Batman comic through a different narrative.
    Story was interesting, enjoyed the characters, didn't appreciate telltales unique take on the characters design at first but I have got to admit, It grew on me while playing the game.

    Good game, recommend getting it on sale since it doesn't have much of a replay value.
