    We’re excited to see where the story goes. And perhaps even more so, we’re excited to say that Season Two of Telltale’s Batman finally delivers a great take on the long-running and iconic character. In its very first episode.

    Telltale was unable to introduce any newness to its old adventure formula, but a strong plot and a very good technical optimization job make this first episode a must buy for all lovers of the genre. Too bad the devs keeps ignoring Italian gamers with lack of localization.

    Batman: The Enemy Within is off to another strong start to Telltale’s take on the series. Not everything quite worked, like Riddler’s role within the story, but I have faith that everything will be explained in the coming episodes. The introduction of Waller could mean trouble, but it’s that ‘could’ that makes me excited to see where the story goes. With powerful allies and enemies on the chess board, and pieces that have yet to come into play, Telltale is gearing up to push Bruce past his limits.

    Yes, there is a new season in Telltale's Batman. And we like it. Batman has some issues with Riddler. Can you solve his problems?

    The Enigma is a solid start to the second season of Telltale’s adventure. Great story telling, superb character development and exciting action can keep you busy for a few hours, although it remains to be seen how choices can affect future episodes and whether or not different players are able to create different jokers.

    Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode 1: The Enigma is easily the best episode of Telltale's Batman story so far. While Season One put the wheels in motion, The Riddler's return to Gotham invites The Agency into town to make its presence felt, while Lucius Fox, Alfred, and Bruce Wayne are still trying to fully come to terms with the events of the first season. The story is a lot tighter, and the animations are well-polished and cleaner, setting the expectation for what to expect throughout the second season.

    The Enigma lives up to its name of being difficult to understand from start to finish. Telltale is all over the place in this episode, but the desire to be gritty and different is exposed too much, and the story suffers from it, feeling more like an odd one shot than the first part of something larger. Mysteries abound, however, and enough engaging narrative threads are left dangling to potentially right this second season’s direction.
