This past week I finished the first episode of Telltale Games’ second season of Batman, and I’d argue it’s their best series yet.
While I’m personally a big fan of the humor of their Tales from the Borderlands series, Batman has an unforgettable combination of epic action, a twisting storyline, and familiar characters framed in new lights. I love their take on people like Harvey Dent, Selina Kyle, and the Joker — they remain true to these characters’ personalities on the whole, yet present them in fresh contexts that make them feel new too. I also love the balance between investigating crime scenes and punching bad guys as Batman — then going home to the Batcave to research Gotham’s major players with Alfred. The series is just incredibly well-tuned.
These are just a few of the reasons Batman is such a stellar series from Telltale. (No major spoilers!)
