BATMAN - The Telltale Series - Season One
If you're a fan of Batman and don't mind the style of Telltale's episodic point-and-click games this title is worth checking out. Despite its underwhelming technical performance and watered-down visuals, it's a gritty and violent story that captures Gotham City in a similar way to other modern stories about Batman. Else, if you're not really a fan of Bruce Wayne and his after hour activities, maybe hold out until another episodic Telltale game based on a different series is released.
Telltale Games's take on the Dark Knight is a much-needed step forward in terms of placing gamers in Batman’s boots.
City of Light is a good season-finale, which concludes all narrative lines of the previous episodes and introduces a new way to look at Bruce Wayne as a character.

The bigger a Batman fan you are, the less you’re likely to enjoy Telltale’s take on The Dark Knight. Combined with the obvious age Telltale’s engine is showing, this simply isn’t their best effort.
Batman: The TellTale Series Season 01 is a great view into the world of TellTale's Batman. Complete with beautiful worlds, deep characters, and fun twists that'll have you guess what you did, and didn't do, from start to finish. If you're up for a deep look at the man under the cowl, this is one Batman adventure you'll want to do.
Overall, the game features a decent amount of content but not for the price. For $39.99, I would expect to get more content than what is here. As a big Batman fan, I enjoyed the story but after we've had the chance to play as Batman in other games, it feels like a step back to go the full story-driven route. However, if you enjoy more of an emphasis on story in games, you might have fun with Batman: The Telltale Series–I would just wait for a sale first.
Like Game of Thrones, Telltale's Batman tries to escape the constraints of its well-established universe but ends up falling into the same patterns and railroading the player through a story devoid of...
If it weren't for the plethora of bugs plaguing this great game, it would score much higher. If you can look past those issues, this is a must play for everyone.
Or, if you're simply a fan of the comic book series. Basically, if you like Batman and the idea of an interactive story set in that universe is something that appeals to you then it's probably time you were given the choice to confront an irate Harvey Dent on the roof of a building as either Batman or Bruce Wayne.
