Batman is a great use of the license. It may take a few liberties, it still delivers a great story with good pacing. The engine may be weak, but the writing is on point for fans of the Dark Knight.

If you consider yourself a Batman fan and you like Telltale style games, you shouldn't miss Batman: The Telltale Series. But if you're looking for a challenging experience, look elsewhere.

It’s an easy to play game that you can almost have on in the background; you don’t need to be prepared for an epic play session or to use your brain too much to play this game… The story is very enjoyable without having to think too much about it and this has been a good game for me to put on for a few hours between each Kingdom Hearts session. I just wish it had an extra layer of polish and it would’ve sealed the deal for me.

Batman: The TellTale series is a great Batman story hindered by an outdated engine.

Batman: The Telltale Series – Season One is definitely one of my favorites to come out of Telltale Games in recent memory. Known for their ability to tell amazing stories, Telltale Games crafted a world I wanted to physically be invested in as Bruce Wayne to try and make it a better place. The friendships and relationships you can build throughout the five episodes makes this game a real pleasure to play, and I would highly recommend it as a complete package to any fan of Batman or Telltale Games. Unfortunately, certain episodes do have their hiccups when it comes to stability and performance, and that alone is enough to hold it back from being the best game released by Telltale so far. But don’t let the engine’s shortcomings keep you from playing what is otherwise a great fit in the Batman universe.

Batman: The Telltale Series on the go is the big plus here. I can bring the game wherever I want and with the whole first season of the game installed on my Nintendo Switch, it’s a great game to let time pass while waiting for my dog’s checkup at the vet clinic or while I’m traveling. While it does have some setbacks, Batman: The Telltale Series is a nice addition to the Nintendo Switch’s library of games. I just wished Telltale Games could have added more to the Nintendo Switch version.

BATMAN - The Telltale Series - Season One is a surprisingly brutal adventure with a good story. The decisions you have to make between Batman and Bruce Wayne are far more important than in previous Telltale titles before. The new Crowd Play feature lets you have fun with friends on the couch and takes the games from Telltale to the next level.

Batman: The Telltale Series brings together some of the franchise's most iconic heroes and villains, weaving a story that is intriguing and thrilling for the most part. It can be predictable at times, and the game engine is well past its sell by date, but fans and newcomers alike will love what Telltale have crafted here.
