It’s a tribute to Telltale that the intricate, multi-layered plot and diverse cast of intertwined villains and madmen makes episode three’s lack of consequence and gameplay shortcomings excusable. I did encounter some brutal performance issues, but the writing has significantly improved from episode one, the voice acting is at its highest quality yet, and Gotham feels dense, detailed, and alive. The detective missions are starting to feel a little redundant, but the combat direction and animations that follow are so swift that it’s like watching a well-choreographed dance. Above all else, the elaborate plot has me utterly hooked.

Inconsequential decisions suck the momentum out of Telltale's Batman series.

But the narrative picks up the slack, and despite a slow start, it builds into a nice crescendo and naturally, a cliffhanger. Batman: A Telltale Games Series: New World Order keeps up the status quo, with slightly enhanced screentime for Bats. That's not a bad thing though, so if you've been enjoying yourself so far or fancy yourself a Batman person, three out of five good episodes so far is a safe bet.
