    If Guardian of Gotham tense atmosphere and hard choices are anything to by in this penultimate episode, then Telltale is on the verge of delivering the definitive Batman story in video game form.

    Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham follows up nicely on the plot twists and themes introduced in Episode 3, providing Batman with his darkest and most challenging video game story yet. The proceedings border on unpleasant at times, but then again, it's Gotham we're talking about here.

    The fourth episode of Telltale's Batman story jumps right into the action. It introduces new characters and we get to fight in Arkham Asylum. All of this gets held back by limited controls though.

    "Guardian of Gotham" is some of Telltale's best writing to date. It masterfully paces several dangling story threads into one tightly delivered penultimate episode while also seeming to build the greater Bat-verse for future seasons. It's exciting and uniquely theirs at this point. It's just a shame this episode also comes with the worst performance issues the season has seen so far.

    I honestly have no idea where Telltale will take the story now, but I look forward to seeing its conclusion.

    Guardian of Gotham doesn't bring the plot ahead as we expected, but overall Batman: The Telltale Series is still a good take on the Dark Knight universe.

    The writing team is doing a decent job with the direction and script of 'Batman: The Telltale Series', but the severely strained engine rears its ugly head at every opportunity. Telltale's formula and tech both are very familiar by now and have their flaws, which we've been able to overlook for the sake of an otherwise enjoyable story. The lag has nearly reached a critical mass, however.
