Critic Reviews for BATMAN - The Telltale Series - Episode 5: City of Light
While I didn't have any trouble seeing this season through per se -- as the amazing action choreography helped -- City of Light did run out of gas once most of the major players bowed out. But truth be told, Telltale has created a strong universe to keep expanding on, and as long as it can keep supplanting well-known characters in the future, I can see an excuse to keep making this series more than any of its other projects to date.
Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 is a fantastic conclusion to this great series. The episode is a perfect amalgamation of everything that has worked so well in the series so far. It is also a massive improvement over its predecessors in a number of ways, and it takes the story began four episodes ago and ends it in a very satisfactory way. This is all on top of fixing most of the technical problems that have plagued the series over these last few episodes, delivering a finale that cements this as one of Telltale's best series to date.
Batman: The Telltale Series - Episode 5: City of Light ends the first season with an attempt to create a noisy blockbuster, but the most part of it looks like an Indian movies parody, where characters do strange things, trying to hide the bad acting and plot behind bright flashes of drawn explosions. And even usually saving a story Joker resembles a drunk cosplayer who has fallen asleep alone on the floor at a closed game show, clutter by schoolchildren. Of course, the nonlinearity could pull the story out, but having tried both variants of events development, it never happened, which is particularly sad due to the weak script and characters.
