Batman: The Telltale Series squanders its potential with a messy story obsessed with retreading older Batman tales.

Batman: The Telltale Series starts strongly, recreating and altering the Batman mythos in new and inventive ways, but can’t keep it up and fades towards the end of its run. It perhaps isn’t Telltale at their best, but still a series worth checking out for fans of their work and of Batman.

An interesting new environment for the storytelling of Batman with the classic Telltale's style but the result is too bad.

It was not easy to come up with something new and interesting in the Gotham City's universe, but Telltale Games nailed it with this Batman series thanks to a thrilling and well-written storyline.

Fans should definitely check this game out, though the Nintendo Switch version does lack a lot of the polish seen on other platforms. But if you want to take your Batman experience on the go then this is your best choice.

A stellar interpretation of Bruce Wayne and Gotham can’t hide that Batman is one of Telltale’s biggest technical messes yet

Not bad by any means, but the seriously plodding pace for the first few episodes kills much of the excitement in Batman - The Telltale Series. Though the game really picks up for a great crescendo in the latter two episodes.

In the end Batman feels like a rough start, and if I wasn’t such a fan of the characters, I am not sure I would come back for more. However, being such a huge fan I find myself wanting to see where it goes, warts and all, which is something Telltale seriously needs to address.

The best video game version of the Caped Crusader to come along in some time, Batman: The Telltale Series delivers the action and characterizations that you'd expect from a property based on the Dark Knight Detective.
